Golduck: Water Type

Golduck took her position at the starting line, her body tense. Her competition was fast, but she would be faster. She had to be. Her friends were being held captive, and all she had to do to free them was win. She heard the whistle blow and quickly dove into the water. As soon as she was fully immersed, all her fears disappeared. In the water, she was home, she was free. The gem on her head started to glow as she burst forward, swimming at top speed. There was no way she could lose.

They are strong enough swimmers to move large items or even carry creatures while swimming and will often be hired as lifeguards on beaches to save those that may not be that good at swimming.

Golduck live near river beds and oceans, because they feel most comfortable with the smell of water nearby. Due to their webbed feet, they have a hard time walking, and are rarely found inland. Golduck need air to breathe, but will sometimes find air pockets underwater in caves where they can make their homes.

Golduck Traits

Allignment: Golduck tend to be selfish, and look after only themselves. Most think they act this way because they have spent their life as a psyduck being severely limited in what they can do so they want to do everything possible with the freedom evolution gives them without caring about what others think. They can make friends, but have a hard time showing others how they feel.

Golduck sat on the bank of the river, the water slowly dripping off of him as he watched the river flow downstream. It was mesmerizing and soothing to watch the water’s course. If he looked at it for long enough, it appeared as if it was breathing. The water was alive, and anyone who said otherwise had obviously never swam before. Only when you were fully immersed could you truly feel the power it had, the strength of the tide or the calmness of a still pond. You could feel it as easily as the pulse of your own blood. As he stood up, he took one last longing look at the river. If the world wasn’t about to fall apart, he would consider making his home here, but he had to keep moving. There were things to get done and a world to save.
