Zhered-Na was a prophetess of a god named Valka. She predicted that Atlantis would sink in a great cataclysm during the reign of emperor King Kamuu. Kamuu ordered her to recant, but she refused, insisting that her procphecy was true, so Kamuu exiled her to the mainland. During her journey, she meditated, and in her spiritual experience, learned a great deal and attracted a large following whose scribes wrote down her teachings in the Tome of Zhered-Na.
When the cataclysm struck, the Atlanteans believed that Zhered-Na was responsible, went to her cave on the mainland and attacked her cult. Most fled, taking the writings with them. Zhered-Na herself was stabbed in the stomach, and her corpse burned with the remains of the cave where the congregation met.
Prior to her death, she came to the aid of Daimon Hellstrom, who had traveled back in time.
Created by Steve Gerber, who named her after a former girlfriend named Edna.
