Kaito was born on Jupiter's moon, Europa. Earth scientists have long theorized that Europa has a 100-Kilometer-deep ocean beneath its icy 30 km crust, and as it turns out, they were right. In fact, it is believed that this is where the Atlanteans actually came from, and that hundreds of years ago, they travelled to Earth to try to colonize the planet. They built the great city of Atlantis, but eventually lost contact with their home world when Atlantis sank into the ocean.

A few years ago, a team from Europa was sent to Earth to learn what had happened to their lost colony. To their surprise, they discovered that Earth was populated with land dwellers who reigned over the whole planet. These land dwellers had formidable defenses and tried to stop the advance of the expedition, still, the Europans pushed on and dove beneath the watery expanse.

As the Europan ships approached the Atlantean borders, they were attacked by the Seaguard, but after a quick skirmish the Atlanteans realized that these invaders were not land dwellers and brought them to their King.

The Europans and the Atlanteans recognized that they were related and decided to share their technology to devise a plan to take over the Earth.

When the Europan expedition set out to leave, two soldiers remained behind to help with the Atlantean defenses. Kaito was one of those soldiers.


Hydrokinesis:  Exocet has the power to create and control water. 

Space travel: 
He uses a suit of armor that enables him to travel through space and is resistant enough to resist planetary re-entry. 

Flight: His suit allows him to fly at sub-light speed, enabling him to reach Europa in less than thirty minutes.

Physical/energy resistance: His armor protects him from harm from physical and energy forces. It also enhances his water manipulating abilities

Power armor: His armor is made from Europan technology. It can be used beneath the surface of the ocean as well as in outer space.

Super strength: Exocet is somewhat stronger than a normal human, but with the help of his armor, he can easily lift 1 ton.

Weaknesses: Extreme heat can cause him and his kind some problems, although with his ability to create water, he often helps rehydrate his allies when they fight on the surface.
