Rescuing Mera

"I knew her."
"Well, that makes one of us."
"When my parents fought in the wars, she took me in.
Mera and Aquaman[src]

During the wars in Xebel, when Mera was still a child, Atlanna took in the young princess, training her over the years.[1]

Meeting Thomas Curry

"You dare speak of Queen Atlanna that way!"
"Your queen left me on my father's doorstep and never gave me another thought."
"Your mother left you to save your life!
Mera and Arthur Curry[src]

In 1978, Atlanna met a human by the name of Thomas Curry, whom she fell in love with. A year later, in January, Atlanna had a child by Thomas, whom she named Orin.

However, due to dangers that would follow her newborn son should he be discovered, Atlanna was forced to abandon him with his father, an act that affected her deeply.[1] To ensure her child never forgot where he came from, Atlanna left him her trident as her legacy.


"Your mother left you to save your life! You cannot imagine how it hurt her, what it cost her. But you're not a defenseless child now. It would have been her responsibility to follow that monster to the surface and stop it. Now, it's yours."
Mera to Arthur Curry[src]
