During his early life, Orvax Marius was king of Atlantis and was betrothed to Queen Atlanna, but she did not love him and instead sired Arthur with Thomas Curry on the Surface World. Orvax then sent Men of War soldiers to bring her back, but she fought them off. In order to protect Tom and Arthur, she returned to Atlantis and Orvax, married him, and sired Orm Marius with him. When Orvax found out about Arthur, he was overwhelmed with jealousy and sentenced her to the Trench. It was said that Orvax passed away, giving his son, Orm, the throne of Atlantis and his trident.
