The Aqueos was a vampire sect composed of at least three distinct supernatural races:

They also used vampirized sea animals, such as (giant)[4] squids, sharks, eels, lampreys, modern dunkleosteus relatives, and possibly whales.[3]


Origins, circa 18,000 B.C.

Circa 18,000 B.C., after the sinking of Atlantis and Deviant Lemuria, the first of the Aqueos were formed of Sh'g'th tissue, created by beings from the stars.[5]

Those first Aqueos vampirized Homo mermanus (derived from surviving Atlanteans), Faceless Ones, and other underwater species.[5]

They inhabited city of R'llyeh, the "Seven World of the Ancients", the "Cellar of the Earth", rumored to be the "First Atlantis".[3]

18th century-early 19th century


20th century


Long ago they agreed to a truce, the Shallow Peace, between themselves and the Atlanteans.[4]

Modern Age

It is unknown if the Montesi Formula, that temporarly eradicated the vampires from the surface, had any effect on the Aqueos.[3]

The Aqueos, represented by "Atlantis" attended the vampire gathering, which takes place once every century. They helped Xarus assassinate his father, Dracula.[6] They allied themselves with the surface vampires and helped in the attack of Utopia, by attacking New Atlantis which supports the island. The Atlanteans try to defend their home, but even their elite team the Tridents were unsuccessful. Many of the members such as Husni and Husam were converted and joined the invasion. Eventually, most of the Aqueos were destroyed when Namor cast a ritual spell that added excess salt to the waters, purging them. The remaining Aqueos again fell under the detante of the Shallow Peace, while being incorporated within Atlantis' dominion.[7]
