"The King is dead, long live his heir."
―Orm Marius to Rina and Scales[src]

Scales is the heir to the throne of her kingdom, from which Orm sought support. Because of his kingdom not cooperating, Orm impaled her father and coerced Scales and her army into following him to battle.[2]

Scales fought alongside Orm during the war, using a prawn fighter to fight. However, she eventually bore witness to Arthur's return, who now wielded the Trident of Atlan and comandeered the Karathen and other aquatic lifeforms into battle. After Orm was defeated by Arthur, she accepted the latter as the new king of Atlantis.


Scales is young and intimidated by Orm Marius' violent presence. Despite this, she has a somewhat playful personality, reacts in wonder to Aquaman being able to control Trench creatures and enthusiastically endorses him as king; and before that, Scales swam in the way between her mother and Orm after the latter killed her father, not wanting to lose her remaining parent to the same murderer.
