Vulko taught Arthur Curry much about Atlantis, his Atlantean heritage and combat. He promised Arthur he would be able to see his mother soon when he is ready, but Arthur became frustrated after years of passing tests and being presented with more. Vulko finally revealed that Orvax, the previous king of Atlantis, has sentenced her to the Trench upon finding out she gave birth to Arthur with someone else.
Vulko found an artifact that may lead them to the Trident of Atlantis. Both he and Mera aided Arthur in secret while staying by the side of Orm openly. However, when Orm prepares to go to war, he reveals he knows of Vulko's treachery and imprisoned him.
