As her name implies, Hydra loves water. It all started when she heard the tales of mermaids of yore, who tempted sailors to their demise by singing a sweet song and luring those swarthy seamen to the deep blue depths. Hydra realized that she, too, could reel in a good catch with her Pacific-blue eyes and hypnotic smile.
But fishin’ can get boring and she was never one to wait around for action. She went looking for some thrills and found ’em not at sea, but on wheels. It’s been said that oil and water don’t mix. But when Hydra met the Hotrod Honeys, it became clear that a little grease from the slickest girl gang in Texas just might benefit from the cool H2O Hydra had to offer.
Whether splashing around or drinkin’ it down (with something like some fine single-malt to put a little rev in her engine), Hydra can’t get enough H2O. And it’s a good thing, too, ’cause all those fluids keep her engines from overheating. And helps her run all over her opposition, leading them to their demise like sorry sailors of the sea.
