After she had a few more siblings and with the war brewing in her world she was tasked on the battle lines under the sea. While performing her duties her ship was left stranded and she was rescued by her fathers enemy Atuma. As they traveled together they fell in love.

This new alliance between her father and her love meant everything to her as she would no longer need to chooses between duty and love.
