Byrrah (Marvel)
Real Name: Byrrah
Search for 'Byrrah (Marvel)' on Amazon

Amphibious Physiological Adaptation: Byrrah's body is specially developed for underwater conditions, granting him specialized blood circulation to withstand freezing temperatures and highly developed vision to see clearly even in murky ocean depths. He can survive indefinitely underwater and can survive on land for a limited amount of time.

Byrrah is a cunning strategist and master manipulator. He has a gift for oration and uses it to sway the opinions of others.

Prince Byrrah of Atlantis was cousin to Prince Namor, a.k.a. the Sub-Mariner and thus a possible heir to the Atlantean throne. Throughout his childhood, Byrrah was openly friendly with Namor but secretly tried to best him or even destroy him whenever possible, even though Namor always thwarted his ambitions. Regardless, Byrrah eventually gained a reputation as a peace-loving and kind nobleman, even as Namor ascended to the throne.

Byrrah became supervisor of the Atlantean weapons factories. Later, using a mind control device, he convinced the citizens of Atlantis to chose him as leader, exiling Namor, and forming an alliance with Atlantis' enemies, Attuma and Krang. Lady Dorma destroyed Byrrah's device, and ultimately Namor returned, exiling Byrrah and defeating his enemies' schemes. Byrrah returned to trick the Atlanteans again, this time with the help of Dr. Dorcas, but was again exiled by Namor.

Next, he formed an alliance with Llyra, empress of the undersea Lemurians, promising to marry her after gaining the Atlantean throne. At the same time, he allied with the alien race of Badoon and kidnapped his cousin Namorita. The Badoon betrayed him, and Byrrah and Namor defeated the Badoon together, Namor releasing Byrrah from punishment.

During the time when the warlord Attuma ruled Atlantis while Namor was on the surface world, Byrrah appealed to Namor to join him in defeating Attuma. Although they did not defeat Attuma, Namor returned to govern the undersea Deluvia.

Byrrah's current activities are unknown.
