Not much is known about Nara's past, but it has been indicated by fellow academy student Apex that Nara has abandonment issues. Before Murderworld it was revealed that Kid Briton was cheating on his girlfriend, Apex, with her. Their affair was accidentally discovered by Anachronism, which caused Brian to beat him up. This apparently triggered Aiden's transformation and subsequently, Nara began to tease him but at the same time flirt with him. The two came close to kissing but Brian stopped it and the two fought. It was revealed later on Apex always knew about the affair and she set things in motion to get revenge on Nara for the humiliation she endured.
When the Academy kids were first kidnapped by Arcade and forced into murder world, they stuck together. By chance, Death Locket came across their camp and Brian and Nara were all too ready to kill her but Apex stopped it and invited Rebecca to join the group. As things continued and more people got attacked, such as Juston Seyfert and Darkhawk, Arcade kicked the game up a notch and provided safe zones for everyone...on the condition they would get there alive. A bridge collapsed, knocking Anachronism and Bloodstone into the water and Nara was blasted off into the water by Deathlocket, controlled by Apex. At first, Nara wanted to get revenge on Deathlocket but Bloodstone spelled it out and revealed to Nara that Katy was the one who orchestrated the entire thing. When the group was reunited, Nara threatened Apex and punched out Brian for refusing to save her. She and Apex began to fight but she was blasted away by Deathlocket. Bloodstone intervened and knocked out Rebecca, and Katy swayed Brian into attacking Nara. Nara began to taunt him, realizing how much he was being swayed either to help him break free or get him to attack Katy, but it backfired and she was attacked and dealt a grave wound on her side. Before Brian could finish her off, Aiden stepped in and saved her by killing Brian.
After Brian's death, Nara started a relationship with Aiden, although whether this was out of gratitude for his saving her life or strategically aligning herself with one of the physically strongest competitors is unknown. When it is revealed that Katy has a twin brother, Tim, whom she shares a body with, Nara is one of three contestants who votes to kill them, along with Juston and Chase. After Katy reassumes control and chases the contestants through a portal, Nara, Cullen, Aiden, and Cammi find themselves on in Safe Zone 3 where Hazmat and Reptil have been hiding while Reptil recovered from the wound inflicted by a mind-controlled Death Locket. After some arguing, the group decides to leave the Safe Zone in order to find and help Nico Minoru, who helped them escape.
Once they reach the mainland, the group began to fracture, with Reptil, Hazmat, and X-23 all leaving. However, the impending deadline caused Bloodstone to lash out at Anachronism. Only Nara's intervention prevented a fight from breaking out. Taking Aiden out into the woods to calm down, Nara revealed to him that Cullen had a crush on him. Almost immediately after this revelation, Trigger Scent caused X-23 to go berserk and attack the group. While attempting to flee from Laura, Nara tripped on the sand. Aiden immediately leapt to her rescue but was about to be killed when Cullen removed his ring, which kept a mystical parasite called a Glartrox under control, and saved the two.
Unfortunately, Cullen had no control over the parasite which then proceeded to attack the competitors. Unable to find the ring, Aiden was just about to kill Cullen when Nara, who had been searching the nearby water where the ring had dropped, announced she had found it. The monster charged Nara and slashed her but not before she was able to touch the ring to its skin, causing it to revert back to Bloodstone. However, the wounds she suffered proved to great and she bled out in Aiden's arms.
Nara was created by writer Dennis Hopeless and artist Kevin Walker. She first appeared in the story "Worse Things" in Avengers Arena #1 (Nov. 2013).
Powers & Abilities
Like all Atlanteans, Nara breathes water instead of air. She wears a special helmet to breathe on land.
It would be likely she would also be proficient in use of weapons as she was trained by her parents who were soldiers back in Atlantis and any other training she received in Braddock.
