The Aqueos are mostly Atlanteans[3][4] (though it is a common mistake to consider them all Atlanteans,[3] as some are of other races,[3][4] including the Faceless Ones) who have been converted to Vampires.[3] Legends says the first of them were formed of Sh'g'th tissue, created by beings from the stars.[4]

They were thought to be extinct but have recently resurfaced. They have all the abilities and weaknesses of the surface living vampire. They can convert Atlanteans and humans into vampire much like their surface cousins. They have the advantage over the surface dwellers as sun-light can not reach the deepest depths of the ocean. Long ago they agreed to a truce, the Shallow Peace, between themselves and the Atlanteans.[2]

The Aqueos attended the vampire gathering, which takes place once every century. They helped Xarus assassinate his father, Dracula.[5] 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.[6]

  • Numerous varieties of Aqueos exist. Some resemble Vampire versions of regular Atlanteans Some lack most facial features and seem able to control vampiric fish. Some are ancient representatives of their race, grown large and immobilized by their girth, they sit in silence. A fourth has been seen in a holographic representation. These appear to have many bulbous nodes growing from their heads. It's unclear whether or not they exist or are just an assumption based on studios of the Aqueos.
