She is an Oceanian. An underwater race yes, but also able to pull life giving oxygen from surface atmosphere. She had been a member of Honor Guard for many years. She now spends most of her time patrolling the oceans of earth, doing her best to keep things safe above and below the vast watery ways.
An encounter with Skinner Bones and the Plunder Squad, when she was an older, yet still powerful, and every bit as regal Mermaid in action. Very matronly.
- During her battles with Mister Manta, she has displayed impressive underwater skills, swimming with extended endurance, and for long distances. Her entire race seems to possess a superior muscular anatomy compare to most surface-dwelling humans, along with vastly enhanced stamina for arduous tasks.
- Based on appearances, Mermaid's people are a distinct humanoid species or sub-species. Across their race, there are shared common abilities, they have similar genetic compositions.
