Once upon a time, near the beginning of the 20th Century, Jennifer's family lived in a town called Innsmouth in New England. It was on the shore and there were good places both above and below the water for them to live. That was back when they still called themselves Deep Ones. This was before Lovecraft convinced the US Navy the town was full of evil monsters and they were attacked and torpedoed. This is all well before Jennifer, or even her parents, were born, but as far as she's concerned, Lovecraft and his lies are the source of all her problems. Heck, even other non-humans and humans in the Community often think Lemurians are untrustworthy, dirty and degenerate. “Deep One” is now a slur applied to anybody with aquatic powers, but especially Lemurians. And recently, colleges announced they would begin testing students for genetic modifications. The military is barely experimenting with genetic modifications for battle and yet the colleges feel they have to screen for it? That's going to keep her off the swim team past high school just like it keeps her out of a lot of jobs that did genetic testing for health insurance reasons. Sometimes she forgets the fact that other non-humans, and even a large number of humans, face the same bar to their careers. All the accusations of being a tomboy, unladylike or butch on top of that just drive the chip a little deeper into her shoulder. Jennifer knows about William and Greta Van Hout's natures.

Using Breathing Expansion and Environmental Adaptation: Jennifer's Power Advantages are biological and passive. They work automatically by simply allowing her to breathe underwater and cancel any penalty a person would normally have for acting underwater.

Note: Jennifer uses a one piece swimming suit that covers the intake gills on her neck and the exhaust gills on her lower back. This is to prevent her from accidentally breathing in poisonous, chlorinated water while swimming in pools. If she is wearing this suit, she still has to hold her breath underwater.
