Dyke claims to be the last Nereid- a water nymph from another dimension completely made of water and original member of the Kinsmen. Her other teammates included Teleplex, Wee One, Highlander, Boulder and Rapscallion. The Kinsmen are suppose to be Ireland's version of the Avengers and their first field assignment was to escort a retired Interpol agent, Sean Cassidy for a much delayed debriefing. Teleplex monitored the Kinsmen from a helicopter while the rest of the operatives head towards the Cassidy residence where they are greeted by the Banshee's daughter, Siryn. The Kinsmen inexperience leads to their downfall when they allow Siryn out of their sight and she changes into her costume. Siryn wants the Kinsmen out of her home but Wee One informs the lass that the government wants information from her dad and they are not leaving without him. Dyke attempts to drown Siryn in water but she escapes when one of her sound bubbles reaches the surface and the shrieking words of "Shut-Up" knocks her out. Siryn makes quick work of the Kinsmen and puts all of them out of commission.
Dyke was created by Scott Lobdell
and Larry Stroman
in 1990 and first appeared in Marvel Comics Present
