Crocolisk is a massive grey-green humanoid with thick scaly skin and crocodilian features. Bony plates project from his forearms and shoulders, and extend down his back to his tail. His tail is used for balance, but it is not prehensile. Crocolisk does not wear clothing, but he is fond of jewelry, particularly thick gold chains and large medallions.

Crocolisk is foul tempered, brash, and fearless to the point of foolishness. He takes what he wants, and he has no expectation that there will ever be consequences for his actions. He has contempt for the weak and for anyone who would defend them. He is not clever by any means, but he has an animal cunning that gives him an almost preternatural sense for when he is in danger.


The character is an adrenaline junkie driven by a desire to experience thrills and risk.
The character doesn't fit into the larger society.


Crocolisk is a monster, inside and out.
Uncontrolled Power
Crocolisk's size and weight make it impossible for him to have a normal life.


Anthony Fields has always been a criminal. From his earliest childhood, Anthony took whatever he wanted and hurt anyone who tried to stop him. By the time we was a legal adult, Anthony already had an lengthy criminal record, including multiple burglaries, armed robberies, and assaults. Due to the corruption and inefficiency of the New Orleans police department, and the lack of cooperation from witnesses, Anthony never served more than sixty days for any of these crimes.

Anthony was on parole from a simple burglary charge when he brutally assaulted and robbed the proprietor of a corner store, leading to his arrest when that crime was recorded on the store video camera. After he was released on bail, pending his trial, Anthony was approached by a stranger who offered him a way to stay out of jail forever – he would be strong enough to break out of any prison, and his skin would be bulletproof. Anthony rejected the offer at first, until the stranger offered him a sizable cash incentive. Anthony accepted, intending to reneg on the deal once he'd been paid.

The stranger drugged Anthony and took him to an isolated laboratory near the docks. Anthony was unconscious during the process, but when we awoke he was alone, and he was a monster. The stranger, true to his word, left a stack of cash on a table next to Anthony. Anthony was truly freed of the consequences of his actions, and Crocolisk was born. He has committed countless crimes, and been captured several times, but he has never been kept imprisoned for long.

Powers and Abilities

Crocolisk is a nine foot tall reptilian humanoid. He is strong enough to lift 17 tons and his scales are virtually impregnable. In addition to his more obvious alterations, Crocolisk's reptilian physiology permits him to hold his breath for hours, go nearly a year without eating, and recover from nearly any injury. Crocolisk is fluent in American English and Cajun English, and he can usually make himself understood in Louisiana French.
