Greetings from The Aquatics Research Lab!

The Aquatics Research Lab, a subdivision of a military base deep in the ocean at an undisclosed location has had... a leak. If it was water this would be a small problem, but unfortunately it's a test-subject from the Specimen Program which has made it to open water. Rumored to have returned home to an abandoned pumping station, the lab have tasked two of their top scientists with its recovery... dead or alive.

Introducing The Fresh Blood: Shelly & Finn

Shelly: Lead scientist for the Specimen Program at the Aquatics Research Lab, Shelly specializes in cybernetic organisms and was responsible for the creation of Specimen 8. After Specimen 8's escape to open water, Shelly was tasked with recovery of the beast due to her intimate knowledge of its systems and capabilities.

Finn: An astute surgeon and well read marine biologist, Finn oversees all medical operations and upgrades within the Specimen Program. With considerable experience handling the beasts, Finn was the first choice to join Shelly in the recovery of Specimen 8 after its escape from the Aquatics Research Lab.

If there is a lucky shark somewhere in the ocean, this isn't it. He has been poked, punctured, and lacerated by almost every type of flotsam you could hope to find at sea. The collection of splinters lodged in his tail have earned him a deadly reputation among divers who have been shredded by his prickly appendage.

Specimen 8

For years the military has been searching for a way to gain an edge in aquatic warfare. It started with training dolphins... but that wasn't enough. Deep in an ocean laboratory at an undisclosed location, they have taken it to the next level. Unfortunately their creation managed to chew through a titanium fence, slaughter its handlers, and escape to open water. This is going to be one heck of a cover-up...
