Quote1 Nara: Here's the one who actually might've killed you. But she's an Atlantean with abandonment issues, isn't she? Hard to blame her being violent. I kind of heart her. Your mileage may vary. Quote2

Origin

Nara was born to Atlantean parents that served in King Namor's royal guard. They raised Nara to love Atlantis and the glory that comes from bloodshed in combat.[3]

Despite serving in the royal guard, Nara's parents were actually loyal to Attuma. During their attempted assassination of Namor, both of Nara's parents were killed. Although Nara's life was spared, because she could not be held responsible for her parents' treachery, she was exiled to the surface world.[3][4]

Nara was one of the sixteen superpowered teens captured and teleported to Murder World by Arcade. When Death Locket encountered the Braddock Academy group, Nara almost killed her before being stopped.[7] During the first 10 or so days, Nara and the Braddock Academy group remained together protecting their small camp.[8]

When the group set out to find one of Arcade's Safe Zone's, Apex took over Death Locket and used her to blast Nara into a river where her teammates Aiden and Cullen had also fallen, making the group split.[9] The two groups reunited at the Safe Zone in Quadrant 2. Unfortunately, the reunion quickly devolved to a physical fight between Kid Briton and Nara. To save Nara's life, Anachronism decapitated Kid Briton.[1]

Following the death of Kid Briton, Apex and Death Locket left the Braddock Academy group. Because he murdered to protect her, Nara quickly developed feelings for Anachronism. The pair remain inseparable for the next two weeks.[10]
