Tusky is usually the first one to seek aid if Aquaman and company are in trouble and need help from their sea 'friends' or ensemble, often gathering together a military force on the threat either telepathically or through Tusky's reconnaissance with his fellow aquarian allies ('low-level sea-life inhabitants').
