History

Dara was an Atlantean member of the royal family. He along with his twin brother Seth were born into the House of Thakorr. As Namor's cousins, they became his close friends and were loved by the people of Atlantis.[1]

He was later following Attuma as leader of Atlantis, as he feared for his land.[2]

Artys-Gran, queen of the Unforgiven Dead, took possession of the body of Princess Fen to sneak into Atlantis in a plot to summon the Old Ones. When her deception was revealed, Dara angrily put a blade to Artys-Gran's throat. However, the Atlanteans were under a magic spell. The spell caused an Atlantean woman to throw a spear at Dara, striking him and killing him.[3]

However, he can operate on the surface by wearing a water-filled helmet or using a chemical that enables him to draw oxygen from the air.
