Andee is a young boy who lives on an island with his parents who are marine biologists. One day a great and frightening storm carries his parents out to sea in their dinghy. Searching for them along the shore, Andee is caught by a freak wave. Under the water he is saved by two dolphins he’d previously befriended, Tingo and Tango. He is carried to safety, an underwater home, where the dolphins become his new family.
Here he discovers he is the chosen one, a legendary aquanaut with the purpose of saving the oceans and battling the evil queen Zadora who seeks to over-run the Water Spirit kingdom and the Lost City. He is given a super-suit that allows him to become the heroic warrior he is under water; one of the Legendary Aquanauts of the Lost City.
The Legendary Aquanauts were once warriors and protectors of the Lost City, an underwater paradise that was guarded for its resources. It was ruled by a compassionate merking (mermaid king). When the king lost his wife and became ill he remarried a mermaid named Zadora, unfortunately unaware of her evil intent. One weakness that the mermaids and men of the Marine Kingdom had was their lust for gold, a lust so strong it could turn the merpeople against one another.
Zadora lived and breathed only to have it all for herself once she became queen. The Lost City is filled with gold, among other treasures, as well as cures for life-threatening illnesses. So, to protect his people from lust and greed, the king told them they would not be allowed to return, that they would be safe in the Water Spirit Kingdom, no longer tempted by the gold. The Lost City was then protected by the aquanauts who, over time, disappeared.
But, with Queen Zadora gaining more power as the king fell more ill, Andee was called to protect the Lost City from her malicious plan to overthrow the entire kingdom. Once a legendary aquanaut; in the story he becomes the reincarnation of this former aquanaut self, although remaining in the body of a teenage boy.
Andee has a strong sense of purpose and responsibility, and believes that his quests will also bring him closer to finding his parents.
"Always do the right thing, especially where the people and beings you care for are concerned. There is always a way to combat injustice, it just takes faith and courage. Once you put your intentions in the right place, you will start to see others begin to help you along your journey." Simon.
