    Creation

    Yara Flor was created by Joëlle Jones for DC Future State event According to Yara Flor's creator, the look of the superheroine was inspired by the Brazilian indigenous model Suyane Moreira.

    History

    Origin

    Yara Flor is from Brazil but left with her aunt figure Renata to the United Stated during childhood. As a teenager, she went back to Brazil, despite Renata's disapproval.

    Back to Brazil

    Upon returning to Brazil, Yara saved someone and met João. She then heard music from a waterfall and when she went to investigate, met a mermaid-like create who revealed herself as Iara, who Yara was named after. She then went on a flight back to Rio and was attacked by an Amazon. The plane then was brought to the ground by the gods Zephyros and Eros, the latter of whom had fallen in love with her. Yara and João reunited but were interrupted when Eros hit her with his arrow, causing her to fall in love with him. Eros then brought Yara to meet Hera.

    Mount Olympus

    Upon arriving at Mount Olympus, Hera made Yara her "project". Yara was trained and tutored by Chiron and Eros and was given gifts from the gods. Yara and Chiron went into the woods and Yara realized that she couldn't control her powers, which upset her but also led her to name her horse Jerry. At the next training station, it was clear that she her behavior had changed. She was more calm than angry. On a walk with Eros, he told her that Hera wanted Yara to become her champion, but it would require giving up a lot. Yara said she wanted to visit Brazil one last time first.

    Back at Brazil, she reunited with João before meeting someone who claimed to know her some time ago, a woman named Potira. Potira showed her Themyscira years ago and showed her her mother. She declared that Yara must join the tribe that her mother was once apart of, but was interrupted when Artemis and Cassie Sandsmark showed up. Artemis, upset, confronted her. Cassie tried to defuse the situation and gave Yara some advice. Yara then returned to Mount Olympus to become Hera's champion.

    However, she ended up refusing the drink that would make her live eternally, which angered Hera and Eros. Hera then ordered that she be sent to Tartarus, but instead Yara ended up fighting Hephaestus's army. When she defeated them, she summoned Jerry. The two tried to find a way off Mount Olympus but couldn't and were stuck roaming around there. However, Hephaestus killed Jerry. Yara was defeated when she tried to fight him and Hera arrived, telling her that Hephaestus wanted a word with her.

    This ended up with Yara being sent to Tartarus, where she encountered some creatures there before she ran. Turning around, Yara saw that they were running from a giant-size man, as it appeared. Yara was locked in a cage and no matter what she tried, couldn't escape. During her time of captivity, Eros visited her, asking why she rejected Hera. They ended up arguing and, sometime after he left, the giant-sized man came back and grabbed her. They fought and Yara won, which was when Jerry showed up and Yara realized that he was still alive. They flew out of Tartarus where Yara caught Jerry up on what happened. They walked around Mt. Olympus until they came across large doors. Thinking she heard a voice, Yara opened them, only to be confronted by Eros' army (not that she knew that it was his).
