Voice Cast and Characters

A charming weather forecaster who, after reporting on an electric power plant and getting caught in the blast of its explosion, gains weather-based powers while also being transformed into a humanoid cloud. Gibson is a charismatic individual who often thinks more of himself than he does of others but learns the error of his ways following the accident that took his good appearance from him. Gibson feels that he has to make amends to those that he disregarded following his accident. Gibson's archetype is influenced by Tony Stark / Iron Man from the Marvel Cinematic Universe for his charisma, ego, and actions.
The co-anchor of the news station that Arthur Gibson works at and is his love interest. Kaus is a very caring and heartwarming individual who takes pride in her work and looks after others to the best of her ability. After Kaus learns of Gibson's condition, she aids him in finding a cure and eventually gets caught up in his heroic actions, but usually still sees Gibson for who he is on the inside and not for what he has become following his accident or for what his actions represent.
A weatherman who is the co-anchor with Virginia Kaus at the news station that Arthur Gibson works at. Grant is a close friend of Gibson's but is often seen as a partial rival to him both in the workplace and for his affection over Kaus, and outcasts Gibson for his disfigurement due to the accident. Grant eventually redeems himself with Gibson who rights his wrongs made between the two.
A former data collector at the electric power plant who became an investigative journalist for the news station that his former colleague, Arthur Gibson, worked at. Walker gains flight and electricity powers due to the power plant explosion after investigating the plant. Walker prolongs to expose and take down Dr. Nimbus and his business, and befriends Gibson along the way, eventually partnering together to defeat Nimbus and uncover answers to the cause of the explosion. The character was created by Trail's sister and is influenced by Superman.
A philosophical scientist who is the owner of the electric power plant that exploded. Nimbus has faced allegations of being associated with the black market and for hiring shooters to carry out crimes to keep his business and career intact. Nimbus gains his own set of weather-based powers opposite of Gibson's and is transformed into a humanoid storm cloud due to the explosion, but can transform back to his human form, unlike Gibson. His character is an analog to Carlton Drake from the Marvel Entertainment film Venom, with aspects also being taken from the definition of "nimbus", "a luminous cloud or a halo surrounding a supernatural being or a saint".
