5 (who?)
Invader Name:  Almost Waterproof

Official Name:  Kiim Yel'rrowm

Height:  5'5''

Label/Nickname:  Waterproof

Species:  Aquatic Qwuedeviv

Official Specialty:  Saboteur, Espionage, Infiltration, Elite Unit

Disguised As:  Random bystander.

Appearance:  Waterproof is an aquatic Qwuedeviv with little to no blue-grey fur. Apart from this, it’s adorned with nine black stripes on each arm and leg. It also has three slightly curved stripes on its back located across its shoulder blades, over the base of its tail and one centered between the previous mentioned. The tail itself is flat and squarish with rounded edges by the tip. On the topside of the tail’s last inches there's a large black circle with a lighter grey-blue circle inside. Within this last circle there's a cyan-colored eye.

There are two of these eyes on the back of its ears too. It has eight sensors which are more or less working as small tentacles, able to be moved freely at any direction. They're usually leaned back between its ears though.

To add more to this Qwuedeviv, it also possesses two tentacles sprouting on its back. Each tentacle possesses a black stripe near each tip. It also has several sets of gills. Four gills can be found on its chest, eight on its upper back, four on the back of its head and two behind each of its main eyes. Waterproof’s eyes possess black sclera with light blue pupils. Its eye disguise is cyan. It possesses minor illusionary abilities.

Waterproof's invasion uniform is dark grey with three tool-belts; one attached to the lower right leg, upper left arm and as a bandoleer across the chest (running from the left shoulder to its right side). It also wears a pair of goggles with green-tinted lenses.

However, even though its invasion uniform is formal attire, it usually goes with another during missions and when times require it (especially if it freezes). Under such circumstances it uses an insulated, tightfitting full body suit instead. This is also dark grey and is equipped with the same kind of tool-belts with the addition of a black belt around its waist. This outfit mimics all of Waterproof's stripes with the addition of the outlining of each stripe glowing cyan. Together with this outfit it wears a waist cape (in the same color as the suit) which seem to be a bit too large as it reaches down to its ankles. This is adorned with three stripes on each side; these lacking the glowing outlines. A hood can be attached to this suit. Waterproof also wears the goggles in this outfit.

Personality: Waterproof is a little unstable from others' point of view, and is generally insecure or suspicious towards everything around it. It's rather antisocial due to its past but it tries to overcome this in various ways. Therefor, its mood can change quickly and drastically either to appeal to someone else or just reverting back to what it really feels. It is like a theatre performer with no script, in that Waterproof often feels as though its wearing a mask. If one gains its trust it generally gets more friendly and open towards them. Otherwise it will just lurk around and reluctantly speak when asked.

Background: Waterproof is an elite sabouteur who's job is basicly to wreak havoc behind enemy lines during an invasion, and weaken the enemy's defences and resistance. It's an isolating job, as it has no contact with the rest of the invasion force untill they break through the enemy lines and retrieve it during their assault. Waterproof's incredible focus and obsession to reach its objective, plus the extreme conditions it's put in has made it rise through the ranks of the Qwuedeviv military faster than most of its peers. Because of its long standing tendency to obsess over a mission, Waterproof developed antisocial side, and it cannot usually handle a normal social interaction.

This social quirk certainly isn't helped by always being moved around to different crews from mission to mission, losing whatever friends it has made in the process. On account of this, Waterproof has never really been able to settle down and relax and work on its social skill. After having enough of this, it decided to choose a goal of its own. By escaping its last crew through a drop pod, it crashlanded on Earth alone to wait for a static crew which wouldn't dissolve after only a few missions. It hoped whatever crew it found wouldn't throw it into situations which were likely to kill it, and maybe give it a chance of surviving.

Random Facts:
Waterproof's disguise is put together with clothes that shield from cool temperatures: A turtleneck with thick stripes alternating between black and white and sleeves that are slightly too long. It also wears a pair of black pants and black/white-striped socks. If necessary it'll wear a pair of boots as well, together with a beanie. It’s often seen with a black scarf around its neck, which is outlined with red and has qwuedeviv-insignias at each end. The scarf is often used together with its combat suit as well.

Its name hints at its aquatic heritage—that it doesn't really mind being soaked, or taking a bath for that matter.

Waterproof has a colder body temperature than most, and has problems staying warm. Because of this, it tends to try to stay warm by using insulated clothes, and if that's not an option, keeps itself close to warm areas.

Waterproof has a well-developed natural night vision.

It prefers a bow and arrows over other weapons even though it has more experience with conventional, long-ranged weaponry.

Even though a saboteur, its extreme tactical mind has made some officers question its choice of profession and believe Waterproof would be better off as a tactician.

It keeps its favorite toy from back when it was a keetin as a kind of good luck charm. Besides everything else in its possession, it can go great lengths to retrieve it if misplaced.
