My name is Raymond "Ray" McArthur, the Skyfish Incarnate with the power to zip and hover into great distances in a lightning speed and wields an extremely sensitive hearing. I earned a rank of Captain due to my special abilities to lead my own platoon for the Civil War but I decided to join Hank Henriette instead due to my lack of leadership and shyness behavior. Also, I am terrible in directions as I hardly find which way I should be going.

Ray is a young adult with a rather athletic build. His skin is a fair complexity. His hair is black-tone with faux-hawk look but he dons a long hair tied with gray hairband, and he lets his ponytail rest on his right chest. His uniform is basically similar to the lower ranks of Incarnates such as Theodore Sherman's.
As a Skyfish Incarnate, he is based on optical phenomenon cryptids, the "skyfishes" or "air rods" or "flying rods". As a beast, he is in the form of a monstrous moray eel with two wavelength-like fins on his both sides of the long body from eyebrows to tail. His skin is pale white. He has a crest fin with three spikes on his head. His mouth is added with a secondary jaw with two large teeth that can spread sideways. When he is in berserk mode, his eyes glow light blue, changed from human iris.
The image of Ray in both human and Incarnate forms is on this link.
Although he is courageous and determined captain, he is a rather shy and introvert but he manages to gain social acceptance with other Incarnate soldiers, especially when he recruited his own Incarnate platoon as he received a captain rank when he was drafted to become part of Elaine Bluelake's experiments for the Incarnate Soldier Unit. He lacks the sense of leadership to give out orders and strategies. Afterwards, he merged with Hank's main battalion when their first battle in the Civil War begins.
Ray also lacks sense of directions as he is confused in routes and paths, even the directions in the compass. As he once led his squad during the Civil War, he has entered the wrong area, much to his teammates' nuisance and complaints. Even in his Incarnate form, he is unable to figure out his way as he feels he is lost in the midst of segments within the destination.
With the power of a Skyfish, Ray's Incarnate form allows him to travel into blazing speeds in the blink of an eye; thus, he can hover over the ground and zip straightforward to the destination. He is armed with long, sharp claws on his fingers that can slice into flesh of an unfortunate man in tremendous velocity. He is also equipped with secondary yet passive ability: super hearing. He can listen to distant noises, even the whispers when he is close to others.
He requires a large amount of water to sustain his energy and vitality in Skyfish form, including his fast healing factor. His dehydration and thirst may lead to his exhaustion and inability to maintain his strength and determination.
One of the cons for his Incarnate form is that he cannot use the superspeed ability in enclosed, crowded spaces as he is rather fragile and easy to hit the walls. However, he can still fight in his human form just like Hank. Thanks to his Skyfish ability, his agility and fighting skills are enhanced with quick reaction and high mobility. His weapon of choice is mainly a brass special lance with its internal mechanism: a chain that can withdraw its spear into a metallic whip to wound targets farther at ease. It is also equipped with explosives on its tip whenever a stronger Incarnate is mandatory to be defeated in a single and powerful blast, triggered when he presses a trigger on its handle after it is stretched.
He is also equipped with a pistol, held in the holster on his belt. His pistol is loaded with Godkiller Bullets. He uses it to finish off the enemy Incarnates after sustaining them enough wounds and weakening them, signifying and following the Oath.
