Byrrah is a gifted inventor and chemist, an accomplished politician and a master of multiple armed and unarmed combat techniques.
Atlantean Heritage: Byrrah enjoys the benefits of his Homo mermanus physiology: He has gills that extract oxygen from water, can withstand extreme pressures and temperatures, and has acute vision. He can swim at approximately 30 miles per hour. He can remain out of water for approximately nine minutes before beginning to suffocate. However, he can operate on the surface by wearing a water-filled helmet or using a chemical that enables him to draw oxygen from the air.
Weapons: He sometimes uses a battle lance, a weighted seashell projectile, an energy pistol, a sword and a power-pike with sustained electrical charge. As Salamar, he used energy-projecting technology to generate electric blasts, force fields and electrified containment fields.
Prince Byrrah of Atlantis was the stepson of the Atlantean Emperor Thakorr and he was thought to be the possible heir to Thakorr's throne. However, the more likely heir was Byrrah's cousin Namor, the Sub-Manner, who was Thakorr's grandson. Because Namor was the son of the Atlantean Princess Fen and the surface man Leonard McKenzie, Byrrah regarded Namor as a halfbreed who was unworthy of the throne When they were both boys growing up in the Atlantean city beneath the Antarctic Ocean. Byrrah pretended to be Namor's friend. But even then Byrrah was seeking a way to rid himself of Namor so that he himself would inherit Thakorr's throne. In fact, it was Byrrah who suggested to Thakorr that Namor make his first journey to the civilization of the surface people; it was Byrrah's hope that Namor would never return.
