Centuries ago, Atlantis was ruled by Atlan, Orin's brother and true king of Atlantis. As Atlan grew Atlantis in land and population, he let foreigners into the city. The cross-breeding of Atlantean and non-Atlantean was seen as an effrontery by Orin. He eventually took power of Atlantis and injured Atlan in the coup.

Years later, after forging powerful weapons Atlan returned to wage war upon Atlantis. Orin and his family were murdered in the battle.[1]

His decedents would continue to rule the sunken kingdom of Atlantis for years to come.


  • Atlantean Biological Adaptation: The Atlanteans are an offshoot of humanity that is biologically adapted to the deep ocean environment. For most Atlanteans, this means that can breathe underwater, endure the pressures of the deep (among other adaptations), and can only spend a very limited time out of water. He also possesses superhuman levels of strength, speed, endurance and durability, all by-products of his body being adapted to survive unprotected in the tremendous pressures of the ocean depths.
