Harry Allan "Hank" Fin (1885 - 1978) was a legendary jazz artist who was renowned for his singing voice, prior to the times of Colonial Antarctica and the USA. Known mainly for his jazz, swing, and vocal hits, he rose to stardom in the 1920's and 30's, also being lesser known for his career as an actor and director. He was known for being part of the four-penguin group known as the "Mech-Mice Can", which did at-the-time popular swing and jazz performances, that of which went down in history, and are still known to this day by Antarctica's older generations.
Fin was the voice behind some historic songs, such as Our Way, I'll Fly With You, My Type of Sound, Çest la vie, and many more tracks. During his lifelong two-part career, he sang and released an unprecedented number of singles, approaching the 300 mark when he retired. His steadfast work made him one of the most recognizable pinnacles of jazz and swing music, and a cultural icon in Antarctica.
Born and raised in New Gurnsey, and was the only chick of his two parents who were Ligurian immigrants. Hank did poorly in school, and was a notorious troublemaker. Fin's father was a semi-famous boxer, and his mother faced arrest countless times for heinous crimes of the time. Her son would follow in the same footsteps, by becoming dangerously rowdy in his nature.
Hank's rowdy and dangerous nature got him expelled from high school while still a freshman, at the young age of 13. He was arrested in 1908 for adulterous misconduct, but was soon released.
Fin always had an interest in music, notably jazz, and took a liking to it from a very young age. He started doing get-ups in nightclubs in the 1890's, where he would sing mediocre jazz and swing music. He never learned how to read music, and acquired his talent by listening to it instead.
When the Khanzem war broke out, Hank did not want to go to war for the Puffish. He instead stayed in Puffica, and grew in fame, by racking up fans with his jazz performances in night clubs. Around the end of the war, "Hank Fin" was becoming a popular name, and he decided to sign into a group with other to-be jazz legends, called the Mech-Mice Can.
Though his decision to stay home and not fight was a good idea, it was nonetheless risky on his image. Any penguin that did not go to war to serve their country back then was considered a coward, and Fin had to bear this shame for the entirety of Khanzem. He tried to brush it off with his rising prowess in the music industry. His fateful decision would pay off in the future, and shape Antarctic music forever.
Post-Khanzem and Rise
After the Khanzem War ended, Fin's popularity rose quickly. He soon left the Mech-Mice Can, and went off to become an independent artist. He released his first singles in the early 1920's, which brought a new style to jazz and swing; they became immensely popular. With his prowess over the Antarctic jazz industry expanding, he released more and more singles, some of which are legendary today.
