Atlantean Heritage: Dragonrider enjoys the benefits of her Homo mermanus physiology: She has gills that extract oxygen from water, can withstand extreme pressures and temperatures, and has acute vision. She can swim at approximately 30 miles per hour. She can remain out of water for approximately nine minutes before beginning to suffocate. However, she can operate on the surface by wearing a water-filled helmet or using a chemical that enables her to draw oxygen from the air.
Conch Shell: Through her mystic conch shell, Dragonrider can control large sea beasts (at least one of which was a mutated eel) to do her bidding. She can ride these beasts and they respond to her will, her mind in effect becoming their minds. She can control at least three beasts at the same time.
Transportation: Dragonrider travels on a sea eel that had been mutated into a dragon like form.
The woman who would later become Dragonrider served for years as an imperial guard in the Atlantean military. She was assigned to the outer borders of the realm, where she watched poverty take effect while the capital city thrived. After these issues continued for years, she became more and more bitter towards Atlantis and she and others formed a rebellion.
Dragonrider and other rebel leaders made contact with Jacqueline Trufaut, a surface woman who had discovered mystic artefacts that would empower their users. Trufaut sought revenge on Namor, and offered to empower the rebel leaders in their cause. She gave Dragonrider a mystic conch shell that would allow her to control great sea beasts. Trufaut then mutated at least one eel into a sea dragon that Dragonrider could ride and control. When Trufaut contacted Dragonrider, Dragonrider led her dragon in an assault on Atlantis.
