About the Atlantic Kingdom

Created and ruled by the autocratic Dr. Klaus Dolph AKA King Dolphin, the Atlantic Kingdom is an undersea monarchy spread across the breadth of the Atlantic Ocean basin amidst 40+ futuristic undersea cities, with nearly 400,000 citizen-subjects and an additional 350,000 bio-engineered aquatic troops.

The kingdom’s ‘subjects’ are bio-engineered, lab-created aquatic DNA hybrids he himself created.  King Dolphin has created hundreds of thousands of these aquatic humanoids to populate his own kingdom, using them as his workforce, protectors and aggressors.  He has engineered each aquatic humanoid to follow his commands and only his commands without question.  King Dolphin has also bio-engineered hundreds of monstrous sea creatures, some of which he uses for defense of his kingdom, others as a 'shock force' for quick assaults against aggressors.  It is a highly industrialized, futuristic communal yet dictatorial nation wherein the citizen-subjects and troops live and work in and near their undersea cities and/or military outposts.  These cities and outposts are all powered by geothermal energy tapped from beneath the ocean floor. Atlantia is the seat of the monarchy of their realm. 

In the mid to late 1990s, as King Dolphin was building his empire, he also had his warriors and guardsmen indiscriminately attack and raid dozens of other nations' commercial shipping vessels, military warships and submarines.  As a result, tensions quickly escalated, causing the world's nations to band together to counter the Atlantic Kingdom militarily.

In 1999, The United Nations security council was preparing for potential war with King Dolphin and his militant kingdom when the Soltan Star Empire invaded EarthMost of the nations of the world were devastated by the Soltan attacks and invasion, however, the Atlantic Kingdom, its subjects and Atlantic Guard held off the Soltans far better than anyone imagined.  King Dolphin and his kingdom only lost 2 cities out of the 20 Atlantic Kingdom cities that existed at that time.  Eventually, the Soltans withdrew their forces from the Atlantic Ocean two months prior to the Soltan's retreat from Earth.  In the wake of the Soltan retreat, the alien invaders destroyed the two captured Atlantic Kingdom cities, leaving them in ruins on the ocean floor.

After the Soltans retreated from Earth several months after the start of their invasion, King Dolphin discovered about the United Nations security council;s plan for war with the Atlantic Kingdom.  King Dolphin immediately broke off all diplomatic connections with the surface world and basically 'circled the wagons' around his cities, making dozens of new undersea military outposts, some less than five miles off the shore of the United States and European nations.  With the world rebuilding over the next decade from the Soltan Invasion, the Atlantic Kingdom became a non-issue...that is, until 2008.

The Orwellian island nation of "Oceania" in the south Atlantic Ocean had been dumping its manufacturing waste and toxic products into the ocean off the island chain's coastline at a staggering rate.  The Atlantic Kingdom had a city located near Oceania.  Over several months time, thousands of the Atlantic Kingdom's subjects, workers and warriors start mysteriously dying as a result of the toxic chemicals for Oceania's illegal ocean dumping.  King Dolphin discovered the dump site and immediately went to war with Oceania.  In one week's time, both Oceania and the Atlantic Kingdom fought a war between themselves that led to a standstill. Both nations were the equal of each other in all things military and industrial.  Governor Goldstein of Oceania and King Dolphin reached a cease fire agreement and eventually an official armistice.  As part of the armistice, Oceania agreed to clean up their undersea toxic dump site if the Atlantic Kingdom was willing to sign a limited shared technology partnership, wherein both nations would share with each other their extensive futuristic weaponry, engineering and scientific developments each had created.  As a result, Oceania's military war machine production doubled overnight and the Atlantic Kingdom now had weapons-enriched uranium and plutonium in their inventory, making the Atlantic Kingdom a new nuclear power in the world.  To this day, Oceania is the only surface nation that has a treaty with the Atlantic Kingdom, making them both allies, or more accurately, uneasy allies at best. 

Once the world discovered the Atlantic Kingdom now had nuclear weapon capabilities, the world governments once again began fearfully spying on the kingdom and its cities, gathering as much strategic and military intelligence as they could on them.  When the results of their spying were finally viewed, much to the surprise of the world leaders, the Atlantic Kingdom was found to be a thriving and vast nation with more than 30 enormous, futuristic undersea cities, all well defended...and all ready for war.  As with any nation's 'cold war' tactics, both a Russian submarine and an American submarine, in two equal yet separate instances, got too close into the Atlantic Kingdom's disputed territory.  This resulted in both subs being destroyed with the loss of all hands onboard in each instance.  Tensions once again escalated between the world leaders and the Atlantic Kingdom between 2010 and 2012. The Atlantic Cold War, as it became known as, began heating up.  Specialized Black Ops teams from various nations, superhero groups from around the world, GUARD and even some super-villains and corporate organizations engaged in dangerous tactics and encounters within the Atlantic Kingdom, bringing the world closer to the brink of nuclear war with the undersea kingdom.  Just when it seemed that nuclear war was inevitable, King Dolphin did a 180-degree diplomatic turn; he began visiting the leaders of other nations vying for peace instead of war.

Visiting their surface nations' capitols and the United Nations general assembly, King Dolphin began to win the hearts and minds of the surface world. He offered up several advances in medicine his kingdom discovered that could be used for suppressing certain conditions in Alzheimer's Disease patients.  He even freely provided cures for three different forms of rare yet deadly human cancers.  King Dolphin offered up some of his advanced technological designs, such as his high capacity quantum tidal energy generators.  He then pleaded to the world for his nation's 'right' to live in peace; its right to not have toxic chemicals and dangerous weapons testing done in the same vicinity as his subjects and their innocent children; he pleaded for the world leaders to help ease the 'racial' tensions the world had against his aquatic, 'green-skinned' and 'blue-skinned' people. 

King Dolphin's pleas were masterful, and the world's response was as expected; pity and compassion towards the plight of the innocent Atlantic Kingdom and its people.  In time, most people forgot about the fear and militant buildup that King Dolphin  produced over the previous two decades. Hardly anyone even questioned King Dolphin's human rights violations towards his own citizens; instead, the media called out the world leaders, stating that King Dolphin and his beleaguered undersea nation were the victims instead. 

Thanks to the growing social media push to make right what had been done 'to' the Atlantic Kingdom, world leaders and benevolent organizations quickly began movements to recognize King Dolphin's sovereignty and aid in quelling the supposed racial tensions the world was 'projecting' on the Atlantic Kingdom's citizen-subjects. The world leaders reached out with the media showing their ambitious desire to work together with the Atlantic Kingdom towards peace and prosperity.

By 2014, several nations enacted open border treaties with the Atlantic Kingdom and its citizens, allowing exchanges of citizens between their nations, schools and businesses.  Once the world saw the futuristic images of some of the Atlantic Kingdom's cities, more and more leaders began to enact treaties and trade with King Dolphin, hoping to entice the kingdom to invest in their country's futuristic endeavors. Throughout all of this, King Dolphin performed with the air of a king and authority of a statesman.  As a result of the new UN's concessions, a peace has ensued between the world's nations and the Atlantic Kingdom.

Today, the Atlantic Kingdom contains over 400,000+ bio-engineered, mass bred citizen-subjects, 350,000+ bio-engineered and 40+ undersea cities, all ruled by King Dolphin from his seat of power in his undersea capitol city, AtlantiaThe Atlantic Guard enacts as King Dolphin's royal guard and front line combatants against any form of aggression, especially from superheroes.   The United Nations, to this day, has not recognized the Atlantic Kingdom as a sovereign nation or kingdom even though dozens of diplomats have started to push for the Atlantic Kingdom's place amongst the United Nations' voices. With relations improving with the United Nations, the Atlantic Kingdom seems content, however, there are unconfirmed reports of an Atlantic Kingdom troop build-up along the undersea continental shelf area of the east coast of the United States and Canada.

Only time will tell if the Atlantic Kingdom is truly as peaceful as King Dolphins says it is...

 


King Dolphin

Dr. Klaus Dolph

HISTORY

The once-famous, now infamous, Swiss bio engineer Dr. Klaus Dolph, started his career as the world's premiere bio-engineer, working on various cures for cancer Alzheimer's and varying epidemic-related cures.  As part of his research, he discovered a process to fuse varying DNAs of humans, animals and creatures while preventing cellular rejection.  His proposals into experimentation in this process brought him in conflict with medical and scientific ethics. As such, the medical boards and science community would not support any experimentation to this degree.  Angered about their refusal, Dr. Dolph instead grabbed several homeless men off the street and performed his own unethical experiments of them using animal DNA as the recombinant. The homeless men died in the ensuing experiments, all of whom meta-morphed into despicable creatures. 

His actions were discovered and was immediately banned from the medical and science communities.  Furiously, Dr. Dolph went into a frenzy of experimentation at his home at the base of the Alps.  There, using outdated and barely functioning equipment, he continued his experiments in his basement.  

At one point,  the doctor believed he'd reached the threshold of his knowledge and that only expanding his brain's capabilities would he be able to succeed in the next phase of his work.  After sleepless weeks of experimentation, he deduced that he should use Dolphin DNA fused with his to allow himself to expand his nuero-pathways.  In the self-performed experiment, he attempted this process with dire results.  The doctor went mad as his brain's capacity expanded to 25% more utilization.  The DNA recombinant reformed his skin into a dolphin's hide and texture; his musculature was five times stronger, and he now had certain dolphin like abilities.  His brain, did, however, allow for the nuero-pathway expansion and thus set him on his path of super-genius-level thinking and solutions.

One of the drawbacks of his human/dolphin DNA experiment on himself was his need to be in the water.  At least once a day for an hour, Dolph had to fully immerse himself in water,otherwise his new hide would whither, dry and crack. He thus decided to create an undersea lab, away from prying eyes, inaccessible to all but the denizens of the deep, and the perfect environment for him to now live in.  He took his lab to an old abandoned undersea research facility off the United States' east coast.  This eventually became the epicenter of what would later be his "Atlantic Kingdom".

Over the next few years, Dr. Dolph created hundreds of new aquatic humanoid DNA hybrids.  He gave them the ability of autonomous actions and performance, but not individual will, basically bio-engineering them to be subservient.  Dolph slowly started to mass produce these new aquatic humanoid species, even creating several dozen different types of dangerous monsters and creatures to help protect him and his labs from the world governments and their increased suspicious nature of Dolph's actions.  Eventually, Dolph engineered his hybrids to become engineers, artisans and warriors. His hybrid engineers designed several immense underwater cities that were all built by thousands of powerfully strong aquatic hybrids. The new underwater cities were grand, futuristic and engineering marvels, located throughout various sub-surface locations across the Atlantic Ocean.  Each city was powered by geothermal energies. In time his 'children' as he initially called them became his 'subjects' and his position of 'father' changed to 'king'.  Eventually, he anointed himself as 'King Dolphin', ruler of all the sub-surface realm of the Atlantic Ocean.

In the years that followed, 'King Dolphin' began to interact more with the human science community all in an attempt to 'show off' his great accomplishments.  This only led to fear and loathing by the rest of the world's leaders.  During this same time, King Dolphin had his elite warriors, the "Atlantic Guard", were also attacking over two dozen commercial shipping vessels, military warships and submarines that each got 'too close' to Dolph's cities.  As a result, tensions quickly escalated, causing the world's nations to come to a resolution on what to do with the Atlantic Kingdom.

In 1999, The United Nations security council was preparing for potential war with "King Dolphin" and his militant kingdom when the Soltan Star Empire invaded Earth.  Most of the nations of the world were devastated by the Soltan attacks and invasion, however, the Atlantic Kingdom, its subjects and Atlantic Guard held off the Soltans far better than anyone imagined.  King Dolphin and his kingdom only lost 2 cities out of the 20 Atlantic Kingdom cities that existed at that time.  Eventually, the Soltans withdrew their forces from the Atlantic Ocean two months prior to the Soltan's retreat from Earth.  In the wake of the Soltan retreat, the alien invaders destroyed the two captured Atlantic Kingdom cities, leaving them in ruins on the ocean floor.

Hardly anyone even questioned King Dolphin's human rights violations towards his own citizens, instead the world woefully victimized King Dolphin and began to empathize with the king's blameless subjects.

As a result of the growing social media push to make right what had been done 'to' the Atlantic Kingdom, world leaders and benevolent organizations quickly began movements to recognize King Dolphin's sovereignty and aid in quelling the supposed racial tensions the world was 'projecting' on the Atlantic Kingdom's citizen-subjects.

Throughout all of this, King Dolphin performed with the air of a king and authority of a statesman.  His kind words of compassion to the world, however, were nothing more than empty political rhetoric and scheming 'Sun-Tzu-level' militant tactics; tactics to force the world's governments to allay their militant plans for the Atlantic Kingdom, thus allowing King Dolphin to look benevolent, all the while, allowing the Atlantic Kingdom to freely build its weapons unhindered.

As a result of the new UN's concessions, a peace has ensued between the world's nations and the Atlantic Kingdom. The United Nations, to this day, has not recognized the Atlantic Kingdom as a sovereign nation or kingdom even though dozens of diplomats have started to push for the Atlantic Kingdom's place amongst the United Nations' voices.

Today, King Dolphin continues to rule over his 400,000+ bio-engineered and mass bred citizen-subjects amidst his now 40+ cities, all from his seat of power in Atlantia.  His Atlantic Guard enact as his enforcers and front line troops against any form of aggression, especially the super-powered type.  He has thousands of contacts now in the surface world, and although people are cautious in their dealings with the king, they project a far greater trust in him than most people do towards their own government leaders.  Even though he portrays benevolence, a look into his cold, calculating eyes tells you that he has plans that are far more devious and dangerous than we could ever imagine...

 

POWERS

King Dolphin, as Dr. Dolph, was a normal human until he bio-engineering dolphin DNA to fuse with his own.  The results were physical as well as mental, thus providing a new wave of abilities, powers and natural effects.

  • ENHANCED PHYSICAL ATTRIBUTES
  • Remarkably strong strength with an incredibly powerful endurance/vitality ratio
  • King Dolphin can hold his breath for a maximum duration of 20 minutes.  
  • Mental capacity increased by 25% making his reasoning and psyche incredibly powerful
  • Good physical and energy protection, excellent radiation protection, poor resistance to heat and good resistance to cold.
  • Has good protection for his ears and eyes vs. force/physical impact
  • Remarkably slippery hide makes it difficult to grab, immobilize, grapple or entrap any part of  King Dolphin's body.
  • FAST REFLEXES
  • On land: Can attack up to 3 times in less than several seconds
  • In water: Can attack twice in several seconds, but can perform twice as many underwater movements than other standard people in the water.
  • No negative (i.e., slow, diminished) effects while fighting, dodging or evading underwater.
  • MOVEMENT
  • On land: maximum speed of 75 mph; leaping 30' across,20' up, 45 ' down
  • In water: maximum speed of 60 mph (52 knots); leaping 25' across (from water to air), or 15 ' up into air
  • COMMUNICATION AND ECHO-RANGING
  • Remarkably strong echo-ranging sonar can be used at a maximum underwater range of 2 to 5 nautical miles depending on water density, temperature and salinity
  • Has the innate ability to communicate with clicks and pops to various marine mammals, whales and dolphins over a long distance range between 5 and 30 miles, depending on water density, temperature and salinity.
  • UNDERWATER COMBAT
  • Can attack and perform melee combat with opponents underwater with no negative effects
  • LIMITATION: DRY HIDE
  •  
    • King Dolphin must moisten his hide daily.  If this isn't done, it begins to dry out and crack after 24 hours, diminishing its body armor by one level, compounded by another level every 4 hours thereafter until after 48 hours, King Dolphin begins to die at an accelerated rate based on hours.

EQUIPMENT
  • Oxygen Generator Mask
    • When submerged, the mask converts water or seawater into oxygen, allowing King Dolphin to breath uninterrupted while underwater
    • The mask is made of of amazingly strong material
    • Mask can be used for a month before it has to be replaced

    • A device that when used, will instantaneously teleport only the user to the closest receiving teleporter  station in the Atlantic Kingdom (2 located in each Atlantic Kingdom city and 1 located in each military outpost).

  • Subdermal Tracker
    • Worldwide capability to track King Dolphin from any hand-held mobile Atlantic cPad

  • King Dolphin's Golden cPad
    • Equivocal of an Apple iPad but created by the Atlantic Kingdom and used for everything from in the kingdom from education, video communications, entertainment to tactical military operations, including launching Atlantic Kingdom's nuclear missiles.  

  • Transatlantic Undersea Kingdom Brimming with Resources, Weapons and Wealth
  • As the king to his own kingdom, with access to over 40 high tech undersea cities, an incredibly well stocked and powerful armory, over 250,000 bio-engineered troops, 10+ nuclear missiles and billions of tons of sunken secrets, creatures, sea mammals and bio-enegineered citizen-slaves, his monstrously powerful list of resources listed thusfar aren't even the tip of King Dolphin's iceberg of material, vehicles and wealth.


MDUverse Data

The Atlantic Kingdom was originally conceived as the Sub-Pacific Organization (SPO) in 1971 by Don "Major Deej" Finger, consisting of a variety of current Atlantic Guard characters.  In 1991, the SPO was converted (on paper) into the Atlantic Kingdom with a new nation-like theme to the group wherein the kingdom now covered nearly all of the sub-surface Atlantic Ocean realm.

On 26 July 2008, the Atlantic Kingdom was updated with modern styles and story.  The original 1971 Major Deej created SPO leader, Dolphin, was updated to be more regal and was thus renamed and rewritten as  "King Dolphin".

CoHverse: The Atlantic Kingdom villain group was created on the MMORPG, City of Heroes, Justice Server on 26 July 2008 with King Dolphin as the VG leader.  The VG remained in existence until the CoH servers were shutdown on 30 Nov 2012.
