TOURMALINE CRUZ is bright young oceanographer, environmentalist, and theoretical physicist. Recently appointed as the special administrator for EPA's top secret special operations unit, Cruz oversees the operations of the USNS Manatee.
Son of the late Ignacio Cruz, Cyrus Borgnine’s former colleague and co-creator of the Accumulation Drive, Tourmaline shares his father’s passion for the preservation of our oceans.
After his father’s disappearance, Tourmaline became Borgnine's student and closest collaborator… though the relationship has been affected somewhat by the changes associated with his transformation into the Sea-Borg.
