The Uhari are often confused with the Atlanteans of Atlantis, as they are both aquatic humanoid species. Their origin is unclear, but there are hints that these two species may be related. The Peak is where they made their home and is where their first complex society emerged. Located in Antarctica below Vostok Station, other aquatic races that reside there are Chordai and Mala.
The Uhari were discovered by Professor Calvin Cooley and investigated by the Fantastic Four. The criminal organization A.I.M. had an interest in it as well, and a battle took place between the Fantastic Four and A.I.M., over the secrets that are hidden there.
The residents of the peak requested a representative to act as ambassador to the outside world. Susan Richards volunteered for this role, and tried to arrange diplomatic talks between the Peak and Atlantis.
Eventually, it was revealed that the Peak was a last bolthole that the three races were using, and that they had a long history of villainy upon the Atlanteans. However, a great war in prehistory had resulted in their final defeat, and they had been subsequently removed from all formal written history except the secret tomes accessible only to the king.
Ul-Uhar was murdered by Namor at the diplomatic talks, which led to the deciding role of the civilization passing to one of his children. But since both children were too young for the job, it passed instead to their legal guardian Susan Richards. Cognizant of her new power, she decreed that Namor would give up some of the territory not currently occupied, and that the Peak would make no more war.

Type of Government: Monarchy
Level of Technology: Highly advanced bio-technology
Cultural Traits: Uhari, like the Atlanteans, communicate by means of a limited range of high-pitched vocal sounds and elaborate "signing" gestures. A more varied spoken language is not possible due to the inherent limitations of sound transmission through water.
