A fabulously vain sea monster who felt robbed of his god status and now seeks retribution.
Mizu is a name he chose to go by himself, being a Japanese word for 'water'. His real name is Akakios, an ancient Greek name meaning 'not evil'.
Ketos (Ancient Greek sea monster)
Biologically he is male, he does however dress and act in a more androgynous manor.
Mother: Ceto the primordial goddess of the sea
Father: Phorcys the primordial god of the sea
Siblings: Numerous other ketea
Mizu stands at the grand height of 5'4". His very unimposing stature is accentuated by his slender frame and pale white skin.
He has wild, wavy ocean blue hair, with his fringe resembling the shape of a whales tail.
His right eye sports two different shades of blue, the lighter taking on the right and the darker portioning to the left. His left eye, however, is completely black, revealing wishing numerous more eyes of different shades of blue within.
Mizu also has various facial tattoos. Two sickles reside on his left cheek. A geometric lightning-esque pattern sits on his right cheek. And a geometric comb-like pattern is seen on the left half of his neck.
Lastly, Mizu's right arm was removed, replaced instead by functioning robotic parts with a large blade taking place from his elbow down.
Mizu has what some might call a misplaced sense of purpose.
With a certain flair for the dramatic and all the eccentricity one might expect from the son of a god, Mizu is not a personality one can easily ignore.
Mizu's mood is about as stable as the ocean itself, calm one moment, a raging storm the next. His frequent and sudden fluctuations can easily wear others out, though Mizu himself probably won't notice.
Despite his almost constant movement and flamboyant nature, he can settle down when watching anime, often shushing others around him.
While calm in watching, one should not discuss anime with him, as he will unleash his full weeaboo power.
Born to the Primordial Greek Gods of the sea, Mizu longed to take up their place when the time came. Unfortunately, Mizu was simply one of the many ketea mothered by Ceto, leaving little room to take the charge he wanted.
During his childhood, he was attacked by a greek 'hero' who succeeded in taking Mizu's arm, but was promptly killed. This caused Mizu to have a blade put in place of his missing appendage.
Feeling robbed of his place as God of the sea, Mizu instead swore vengeance against all the gods, vowing to destroy his mother, father, Poseidon and even Zues himself.
But, by a poor stroke of luck, these gods retired before Mizu could make his move.
Infuriated by his constant set-backs, Mizu instead decided to take on every God. He set off on his world journey to discover the place of every god so that he might destroy them.
It was during this time that Mizu first encountered Japan. He was taken aback by their culture, clothing and religion. This was his first exposure to becoming a weeaboo. Deciding to let Japan and their deities go unharmed, Mizu continued his quest for power elsewhere, but ensured to frequent Japan.
When not seeking out gods, Mizu spends his time crashing at one of his distant cousins house and trying to convince him and his roommate to join his quest to kill the gods.
While his quest isn't exactly going as planned, as it seems Gods tend not to wander the mortal realm quite as much any more.
He still says he persists with his goal, when he's not freeloading at Cyril's house and watching anime.

Mizu has great control over small amounts of water. Able to form water into bullets, concentrate air moisture into usable water, and even control the water content in a persons body.
Mizu is naturally a vain creature. One could easily thwart him by distracting him with his own reflection.
Each eye seen within Mizu's left eye, are representations of souls of the dead. Spirits drowned and lost in the deep sea, unnamed souls still caught in sunken vessels, and the souls of those who he has killed himself.
With each eye, Mizu is able to see the corresponding souls past life.
While Mizu is mostly able to control when and what he sees, a particularly strong or vengeful soul can sometimes force him to see their memories in a sudden onset of flashbacks.
"I'll give you one guess."
"Bees. Seriously, why do they even exist? And people say ocean creatures are weird, you guys have a flying yellow target with a tiny needle of evil on its butt!"
Kind of clothing?
Mizu wears a white yukata with one sleeve open and a black tube top covering his chest. The other sleeve is excessively long, dropping down to his ankles. The patterns on the yukata have a light blue traditional Japanese wave pattern from the waist down. His sleeve reveals a drop-like pattern in a deeper blue from the hand down. And a deep blue sash over his waist.
Least favorite animal?
"Flies and spiders. Why do they even exist? Do they really need that many legs?"
What element would they be?
"Hun, if you can't get this, you should go have yourself checked out."
"You think I care about money. The only dime I want is one with my face on it. Let's make that happen."
Socioeconomic level as a child?
"Here's the thing about money. Gods, like me, don't need it."
Does their universe have a god?
"Sweety, I AM God. Or, at least, I will be."
Religious and to what extent? Any spiritual beliefs?
"If I claim not to be religious, you can lock me up with Heracleitus and Xenophanes."
Most important person in their life
Do they like the name they were given?
"Gods no! My parents literally named me 'not evil'. My primordial parents born from the realm of chaos. Who did they think they were fooling?"
"Honey, I don't get nervous."
"All the time. I'm a greek god. It's the only good thing mortals ever made."
