Shay Lamden (died December 11, 2013) was a marine biologist from Central City.


S.T.A.R. Labs particle accelerator explosion

Lamden was experimenting with shark genes the night of the S.T.A.R. Labs particle accelerator explosion, much like his Earth Two counterpart. However, instead of being mutated into a shark-like creature like his doppelgänger, Lamden was mutated into a mass of tumors, dying shortly thereafter. His wife, Tanya, was also a marine biologist, and continued their work on shark research after his death.[1]
