He’s always worried about not being good enough, and that he doesn’t belong anywhere. He feels like he has something to prove. He wants to have a purpose in life. He tries to hide his worries behind a mask of cheerfulness, but they’re always there. It manifests as envy torwards others he thinks are better than him.
History: Conner grew up in an upscale area. Comner was the youngest son of the wealthy and prominent Waters family. His parents were quite strict, and they had high standards for their kids. Conner had an older sister named Arianna, and she was the the apple of the family’s eye, at least it appeared that way to Conner. She was beautiful, talented, intelligent, and it felt like she could do no wrong. To him, it always seemed like anything he could do she could do better.
In his teenage years, Conner gave up trying to live up to the high standards set by his sister. He only did just well enough in school to get by, and spent a lot of time slacking off. He would often act up in class, and get himself into trouble. There were days where he would cut class to go to the beach and surf. Surfing was one of his favorite activities. It was definitely something Arianna wouldn’t do. He enjoyed the thrill and adrenaline high of catching a big wave. That, and he also flirting with the hot guys in swimsuits on the beach.
He continued coasting through life trying to have as much fun as possible. Even though his grades weren’t the best, he was rather popular with other students, and had a few close friends. His parents wished he would put more effort into his studies, and better represent his family name, but Conner didn’t really care to try. His sister was obviously the shining star of the family, so why did they need him for?
He managed to graduate with just good enough grades to pass. He continues working as an Employee at a local surf shop, and isn’t sure if he wants to go to college or for that matter, what he wants to do with the rest of his life.
Conner discovered his powers while surfing, naturally. He was able to move water when he was paddling out to sea. He had superpowers. He read about people having them, but never in his life did he think he’d get them too. That was something Arianna didn’t have. If she did, she didn’t tell anyone about them. While these powers are awesome for sure, but besides getting people wet, there wasn’t much he could do with them right now. So he kept them a secret until he had a better handle on what they could do.
Miscellaneous: He’s gay!
