Ika is the Wizard Ogeode's daughter. When one of Crystar's crystal companions was wounded, they were at a loss for what to do to heal him. Ogeode forcibly transformed his daughter into a crystalline form, observing the transformation closely with the hopes of learning how to heal the crystal people.
Ika was created by Mary Jo Duffy and Bret Blevins and first appeared in The Saga of Crystar, Crystal Warrior issue 1 (1983).
