Chris is the oldest of the Darling children born to Micheal and Missy Darling. Chris was but a child himself when his sister Cait was born but that didnt stop him from trying to eliminate his competition. Several times his parents had to rescue his younger siblings from some sort of contraption built not really for harm but more malice and dominating behavior.
When their mother fell ill and eventually passed Chris took to bottling his feelings up as he was always expected to look after his siblings while their father was working the docks. It was his job to feed, bathe and sometimes even be a part time father to them growing up. This eventually created a resentment towards Micheal and it wasn't long till Chris even refused to call him dad, or father.
In his early teens and even through out his mid teens it was him who tried to take most of the brunt of their fathers rage and strict behavior. Sparing Cait and their younger siblings as much pain and trouble as he could. Now taking on the role of teacher and segregate father Micheal went forth to insure their family legacy by seeking out rich and powerful husbands for his girls, and influential wives for his sons. Protesting and predicting Caits refusal Chris finally stood up full force to their father. Striking Micheal and instigating a father son brawl that ended up with Chris bloodied and Micheal leaving. His final words being that of hate. "Your no son of mine, When the rest of us are filthy rich, you can wallow with the swine and vermin!"
Cait vanished weeks later, and Chris tried to work and take care of the others but once they got old enough to venture out on their own Chris left them all he had and took a job as a bounty hunter. Bringing in criminals and pirates he sent every dime not spent to keep him alive home to his siblings.
It wasn't till he met his match fighting a group of pirates determined to kill a group of merfolk. A cannon blast at close range sent Chris flying overboard and into the deep blue. Rescued and somehow pitied the Merfolk worked their magics and saved Chris's life by instilling a mystical tattoo which enabled him to shape shift into a creature of the sea. The mighty Great White Shark. Presumed dead, he now travels the oceans looking people in need of his aide. No longer human, nor merfolk, Chris has deemed himself the sexiest shifter of all the seas.
