Mera

History

Mera was born the daughter of King Ryus of Xebel, making a the royal heiress
of the underwater kingdom. She grew up trapped within the barrier that Xebel
had been walled off in, trained to hate the world outside of it, and forged in
the countless civil wars and attempted coups of her kingdom of prisoners. Like
in a prison yard of the surface world, she had two choices: grow strong, or
die weak.

She was trained by her father and his righthand man, Leron, after the death
of her mother. There was no room for tenderness or weakness in Mera's life.
She learned to fight and to hate, turned quickly from a child into a fearless
and near-peerless warrior of her people both with weapons and the royal family
secret of Hydrokinesis.

Betrothed to Nereus by her father, Ryus first sent Mera outside of Xebel,
through the barrier, to exact revenge on the Atlanteans by slaying their
so-called King. She was sent with her mother's Shell of Sounds, which
contained a message for her.

Yet upon arriving outside of the literal Xebellian bubble, she quickly
learned that the Aquaman was not the brutal tyrant she was told he was, but a
hero. After meeting him, and then listening to her mother's message, Mera lost
her desire to murder Arthur. Unwilling to return home just yet, knowing she is
likely to be branded a traitor, Mera is instead left to make her way alone in
this world, seeking what allies she can.

Recent Events

Personality

Mera of Xebel is a conflicted woman. On the one hand, she was raised to hate
the surface dwellers, and to hate the Atlanteans even more. But her
experiences have taught her that the people of the surface are not evil,
simply ignorant. And that the King of Atlantis isn't a tyrant, but a hero. The
message from her mother promted her to abandon her mission of assassination,
and that has, so far, prevented her from returning to Xebel.

She is also proud, stubborn, haughty, and quick-tempered. Like the sea, she
is both quick to anger and strikes like a tidal wave when she is roused. While
usually levelheaded, if condescending, arousing her ire can unleash the
natural born, merciless warrior she was bred from birth to be, and adjusting
to the 'weakness', what others might call 'peace', of the surface world has
been a struggle.

Despite this, Mera holds true to her own sense of right and wrong, and has
learned quickly that mercy is not a weakness, and weakness itself is no sin.
She can be counted on to be on the right side of justice.

Character Sheet

DURABILITY

Aquawoman (don't call her that) can withstand the crushing depths of the ocean. A side-effect of this is making her bulletproof to small arms fire, and immune to slashing or piercing weapons that don't have a LOT of force behind them. Mera is super-tough, able to take punishment humans would never survive. She also tends to heal at an accelerated rate.

HYDROKINESIS

As a member of royalty, Mera has the ability to control water at will. Any water, but not snow or ice, including that which resides inside of a person's blood. In a world covered by 70 percent liquid, in a Kingdom entirely underwater, this makes her a formidable adversary. She has such a fine degree of control that she can even make complex shapes and constructions out of liquids.

SPEED

Out of water, Mera can move and react faster than a normal human. She won't vanish before someone's eyes, but she can avoid blows even a peak human could not. Beneath the ocean, her swimming exceeds the speed of even the swiftest human aircraft. She cuts through the water like a hot knife through butter, traveling great distance in short order.

STRENGTH

The strength of a Xebellian royal is quite impressive. Mera can lift things which weigh dozens of tons, and throw them a rather considerable difference. She can tear through steel and crack stone, lifting approximately 70 tons, perhaps more with an adrenal surge.

UNDER DE SEA

As an Atlantean descendent, Mera is able to breathe naturally underwater and handle the crushing depths of the ocean. She can move, see, hear, and speak underwater as easily as most would on land.
