Obviously, when I said Bary is coming very soon, I meant not even 24 hours later.
Okay, I can't believe I did it. The final frontier. The last dossier. I DID IT! All twelve members of Semper Fi are now officially done and designed, yeah! Now, let me have a brief moment to dance around the room like a loon.
Meet Bary, the original zodiac sign of Pisces ('bary' is actually an anagram from the Czech word for that). He was the one character developed the least in the original lineup thanks to the fact that he was the last mascot to rotate, meaning he wouldn't appear until the friggin' year two thousand and twenty two. So I had a bit of a blank slate to fill, which was surprisingly fun. I took the general idea from the original - a tattooed badass that possesses one of the most laid back, coolhead personalities you can find in a character. He's also positively ancient (at least compared to other characters on the lineup, he's a few times older than some of them) and bit of a specialist, usually diving for old ships and treasures with Artifacts hidden among them.
Thanks to that, lot of his ops are solo exploration. When at home, he shares the tank with Rose, so he's the one actually spending the most time around the team's slightly... biologically challenged... "member".
He's also one of the few exclusively aquatic animals to appear as an anthro (which is sad, because I fell in love with drawing those feet), because their evolution is a bit more zigzaggy. There's also a lot from the ocean that the big blue deep likes to keep a secret (what happens in Atlantic stays in Atlantic... minus the rum). Bary being all touchy-feely... well... at least feely with the landlubbers is one hell of an exception.

And since this is a bit of a sayonara to these huge dossier files (each can be actually printed in the original banner resolution - 0.5x2 damn meters), I decided to finally go back and fix poor Lothar's legs up. He's all fine now.
All twelve members of Semper Fi will get printed as bookmarks now. Yay!
