Raphaël Giannotti

Raphaël Giannotti is a tree-trunk of a man, at least where his legs are concerned. He has been hybridized with the DNA of an African elephant, giving him gray-hued skin and a nose that requires more real estate than his face seems willing to give.

Raphaël's deep voice grinds like sandpaper on glass. His defining (and bankable) skill is his ability to find water in any form, no matter how remote the source. In a war-time situation, this skill can be the difference between life and death for moisture-starved troops.

We first meet Raphaël in Book 6 of The Human-Hybrid Project, Taking the Tower.
