    Character Evolution

    As the clone of his "father", Walter Johnson, Flip shares his father's personality and has all of his father's memories, but only up till the age that he has been artificially aged to. Thus he is occasionally confused by elements of modern life or technology. He is very fond of aquatic maneuvers, which resulted in the nickname "Flip".
