Background/Personality/Plot Facts:

FISH, the Formative Institute for Scientific Hydrotransgenetics was a small, well-funded think tank dedicated to manipulating the genes of fish for treating a variety of human diseases. While manipulating the brain tissue of Morone saxatilis, researchers unknowingly triggered a rapid increase of intelligence in one specimen, granting it genius level intellect, self-awareness, and psychic powers. Eventually the bass used his mental prowess to dominate the minds of those workers and installed himself as the leader of the organization, which he renamed as F.I.S.H (Foundation for International Superbeing Hegemony). He took the name Dr. Pisces and built a base at the bottom of the mid-pacific, where he directs his minions in activities to seize control of the entire planet!

Dr. Pisces is typically seen by the most privileged of his of his minions in his natural form, a mean-looking bass within a water-filled levitating jar. For everyone else, he typically appears out of nowhere as an Evil Twin of whomever seems appropriate.
