The Atlanteans are a race of aquatic creatures with an unending desire to rule. Lead by Poseidra, the Atlantean Dragon, The Atlanteans wished to extend their dominance, not just across the oceans, but also over the surrounding land. Their assault went undeterred until they ruled much of the Southern Landscape, where they met resistance from their rivals the Fire Kings. As a way to win the battle, the Atlanteans sought the Mermails, who had recently lost their home due to a shift in tectonic plates causing their city to surface from the bottom of the ocean. Seizing a powerful artifact that could control the weather, Poseidra once again began an attack against the Fire Kings, but this time, using the military power of the Mermails as well. However, Poseidra became too full of himself and put on the bracelet, instantly causing his body to change as he was possessed by the Mermail King Abyssgaios.
