Triton is one of the Olympians worshiped as gods by the people of Ancient Greece and the Roman Empire. The son of Poseidon, Triton claimed the seas as his divine territory. Though he shared an aspect of his father's power, he did not share Poseidon's temperament. He became particularly enraged when it became known that the people of Atlantis had more to fear from their monarch Orin than from Triton. This drove Triton to challenge Aquaman in one-on-one combat. In compliance with the rules of his station, Triton was obligated to inform Aquaman that he could only be defeated by the absence of faith in his divine power. This did not stop Aquaman however from fighting Triton tooth and nail and impaling his physical form on a sharpened piece of rock. Upon the death of Triton's physical shell, his father Poseidon appeared and collected his essence. Because he felt that no mortal being should ever play witness to the humiliation of a God, he struck Aquaman blind.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
- Immortality: As a god, Triton cannot be killed through conventional means. Though his physical shell may be dispelled, his essence will live on. The strength of his will is in direct proportion to the spiritual faith of those who worship him. The less people who worship the Gods, the weaker Triton's life essence becomes.
