About Kiora Atua

Kiora Atua is a beautiful female merfolk who commands the powers of the tides and depths. She is outwardly calm and collected but has an intense, wild look in her eye. Kiora venerates the huge, ancient creatures of the sea -- krakens, leviathans, and other denizens of the deep -- because for her they are evidence that even the most persistent forces can be endured: time, water, and predation. Kiora seems calm and wise, but her dreams are dark and bizarre beyond imagining.
