In Costume Edit
Sohcahtoa’s costume is a garish, light blue bodysuit covered with math symbols in solid orange. The costume includes an eye mask to protect his identity.
Out of Costume Edit
Kalino tends to wear casual clothing, often t-shirts with math jokes on them and cargo shorts.
Alternate Costumes Edit
In Vol. 2 Hollow Eves he wore a costume that combined elements of Neil Degrasse Tyson and the Disney version of Maui. For very obvious reasons, an action figure of this was never created, though the Halloween Line did include Scientist Kalino as a replacement.
Dilettante Ball Edit
All fancied up for the ball, he wore a black dress shirt, black suit pants, a black shoes, a black bandana with eyeholes cut in it, and a black hat. The hat and the shirt both have a grey zero on it. This was his attempt to dress as Zero, a Golden Age hero he looked up to out of California.
In Vol. 20 F.AL.C.O.N. DOWN, Sohcahtoa wore a nighttime stealthy outfit that he modified as part of his funk. It is the Nightwing costume to his Original Robin outfit, similar but with more design aspects so that it's not easy to connect with his usual persona. Isaac is also painted black for this.
Native to Hawaii from birth, Kalino grew up far from the superheroics of Protean City. He received intelligence and a fair amount of academic pressure from his mother, a skilled surgeon Dr. Alohi Kahananui. On the other hand, his father Palani Kahananui, was a more relaxed type teaching Kalino how to surf and spending hours playing billiards with him.
While in Hawaii, Kalino first developed the persona of Sohcahtoa, a math genius projectile thrower in a garish and outstanding costume. Coincidentally, his mother received an excellent job offer in Protean City soon after he put on the mask.
While not technically powered, Sohcahtoa has significantly above average intelligence and an exceptional skill with angles and precision.
