lin_canar1LIN CANAR REAL NAME: Lin Canar OCCUPATION: Green Lantern, Oceanographer BASE OF OPERATIONS: Sector 1582 HOMEWORLD: Fluvian HEIGHT: 8' 9" WEIGHT: 100 lbs. EYES: Green HAIR: None FIRST APPEARANCE: Green Lantern Corps Quarterly, #3 (Winter, 1992) AKA: Green Lantern BACKGROUND from the comic books: An oceanographer on his homeworld, specializing in underwater energy emissions, Lin Canar initially refused his selection as a Green Lantern, preferring to serve his people in his professional capacity. But when his replacement went about eradicating crime on Fluvian by the wholesale destruction of the class of citizens most likely to commit crimes, Lin Canar stepped in to stop him. Only after this did Lin Canar accept the job of Green Lantern. Like all denizens of Fluvian, Lin Canar is a creature of vegetable and plant matter, and lives beneath the surface of the planet's massive oceans. As a member of his planet's Research Circle, Lin Canar possesses a scientist's and explorer's curiosity. He is meticulous and thoughtful, well-respected by his fellow Lanterns. Lin Canar is a slender creature whose most notable features are glowing eyes that allow him to see at extreme depths, and the frond-like appendages that help him propel himself through strong currents. Despite his delicate appearance, Lin Canar is deceptively strong even without his ring, able to survive the pressures of the deep. His ring constructs reflect the environment from which he comes, tending toward the aquatic in design. ATTRIBUTES: * Green Lantern ring allows for a protective shield, flight, and energy constructs. * Powerful, graceful and expert swimmer. * Can withstand severe pressure. * Above-average physical strength. * Able to see in low-light conditions. bzzd_luke-ross1BZZD REAL NAME: Bzzd OCCUPATION: Green Lantern BASE OF OPERATIONS: Sector 2261 HOMEWORLD: Aplaton HEIGHT: 1' 3" WEIGHT: 6 lbs. EYES: Red HAIR: None FIRST APPEARANCE: Green Lantern Corps #12 (July, 2007) AKA: Green Lantern BACKGROUND from the comic books: An insectile Green Lantern no bigger than a common Earth housefly, Bzzd is nonetheless one of the most-respected members of the Corps because of his tremendous willpower. Though tiny, the constructs he builds with his ring are frequently enormous in size. Fast and instinctive, Bzzd is a master improvisational tactician, and useful for missions that require stealth. Bzzd enjoys being underestimated, relishing the chance to disprove those who believe that size matters. For situations where his ring cannot solve the problem, Bzzd can fall back on his natural stinger, which releases venom powerful enough to incapacitate creatures many times Bzzd's size. ATTRIBUTES: * Green Lantern ring allows for a protective shield, flight, and energy constructs. * Small size allows for passage through tight quarters. * Near-omnidirectional vision. * Powerful natural stinger with debilitating bio-venom. * Super-normal speed.
