Dragonrider used to be a sentinel in the Atlantean army who became a political dissident and terrorist. She was annoyed at the ruling government for letting her people remain poor while the elite become richer. The rebels and she sought many mystical artifacts to empower themselves. Dragonrider later found a mystical conch shell that would allow her to control sea creatures. The main beast under her control was a sea eel that had been mutated into a dragon-like form.

While Namor the Sub-Mariner was away, the rebels launched an assault on Atlantis. Dragonrider tried to flee after destroying a large portion of the city, but she got into a battle with the Sub-Mariner. Namor defeated the rebels and confronted her about what she had done, Dragonrider tried to explain her actions. Namor refused to believe what she had seen and sent her to the dungeons of Atlantis. Sometime later Dragonrider was freed, and with her rebels she fought Namor again.

Dragonrider later joined a religious faction called At'La'Tique, meaning "Fury of the Sea" and became a member of their strike force the Fathom Five. The group believed in wiping out life on the surface world.

In an attempt to destroy all surface life the team attack New York. They attack and lash out any one they meet in the streets. The Thunderbolts counteract the team and after a long battle are defeated and retreat into the ocean.


Dragonrider possesses the conventional attributes of Homo mermanus: gills that extract oxygen from water, superhuman physiology to withstand extreme pressures and temperatures, and acute vision. She can swim at approximately 30 miles per hour. She can remain out of water for approximately nine minutes before beginning to suffocate. However, she can operate on the surface by wearing a water-filled helmet or using a chemical that enables him to draw oxygen from the air.
