BIOGRAPHY:
On April 20th, 2010, the offshore drilling rig Deepwater Horizon suffered an explosion, causing the oil they were collecting from the deep-sea well to gush out of control, poisoning the Gulf of Mexico's ecosystem and costing hundreds of thousands of dollars to both the coastal states' tourism and fishing industries and British Petroleum, the energy company that owned the prospect that was being drilled. However, there were more casualties to this horrible disaster that no one knew of, ones whose people existed beneath the waves, far from the knowledge of humanity, for thousands of years.
In the ancient eras, the land-walking beings of Earth have shared their world with those who can survive and thrive within the water, but a rivalry between two brothers, brothers of a governing family of the water-breathers, caused an incident that destroyed the trust the land-walkers placed in the water-breathers. The land people began imprisoning and killing the water people at both the behest of their emperors and at their own cognizance, but there were a few empires that had granted asylum to the water people. In the end, the water people, who had no true country to call their own, were given a grand territory upon the edges of the now-Atlantic Ocean, and they dubbed it “Mercy Reef”, which in their language is pronounced “Atlantis”. The Atlantean Empire began advancing their knowledge to form a prosperous state, but the mainland states who opposed them grew even more worrisome and paranoid, so they invaded the archipelago and ransacked the undersea caves that they made their home. The main-landers, believing that the Atlanteans were all removed from the mortal plane, faded their memory from their minds. But they had made a new home in the deepest trench in the sea, seeking to become the most advanced civilization and withhold all of their technology from the surface-dwellers, who they felt were too destructive for them to use responsibly.
Hundreds of Atlanteans were affected by the crude oil spilling into their waters, and those who weren't instantly killed were made fatally ill. It took more than a week for relief workers and soldiers to arrive with medicine and food, and until then, those who weren't poisoned were nearly starved to death due to the tainted crops and livestock. The recorded images of this horrendous catastrophe, including an Atlantean baby born malnourished and near death, were enough to force the undersea nation to avenge this injustice. The Atlanetan royal government was unanimously voted in to lead their military forces in bringing in the board of directors of British Petroleum and Transocean, the owner of the drilling rig, to answer for their part in the disaster.
Dozens of large Atlantean warships walked their way onto the beaches of Southwest Florida, followed by smaller, flying battle crafts. Hundreds of Atlantean soldiers invade the inland, as a separate pack kidnaps the executives of BP and Transocean to the UN building in New York City, NY. All eyes took to the sky as the Superman, a super-powered ally of the United States government, descended to meet them. Silently confirming that this was indeed a diplomatic mission in response to the oil spill, not a military invasion, the King and his guests were allowed to pass.
The representatives of the nations of man were convened to hear the words of Atlan Or'ryn Mar'ius, sovereign ruler of Atlantis, who spoke of a solid unity between their worlds for the sake of peace and prosperity. The undersea states were recognized as independent nations and they began cooperation to clean the oil spill and treat the victims of the disaster, both human and amphibian. The mutual respect between the Atlantean King, whom the surface-dwellers dubbed “Aquaman”, helped create a partnership which came in handy, with an impending threat coming soon...

MICROS:
* Or'ryn NAKED. lol The tattoo over his heart is the Atlantean letter "M", standing for Ma'rius. It is esentially their family seal, as all members have it.
* Or'ryn in his King of Atlantis getup. It is an ancient gold and blue armor with black accents.
* Or'ryn in his human casual gettup.
* Or'ryn in his stealth gear. It has the ability to camouflage him to sensors and detection technology.
* Or'ryn using his power to inflate himself.
* Or'ryn in his human persona, "Arthur Curry", using two identical Identity-Watches of Kryptonian origin. They give him the appearance of an adult male Caucasian.

NOTES:
* Mercy Reef = Atlantis
* In my universe, Aquaman is more of a fishman, creature of the Black Lagoon sort of guy. He's based on Lagoon Boy's appearence. Humanoid, but definantly not human.
* The Atlantean language is the same from the film Atlantis: The Lost Continant.
* Or'ryn has two children, the next heirs to the throan, Prince Ga'arth and Princess Lo'rena. They are half-human, half-Atlantean, as their mother Queen Mera, was born a human, who fell in love with Or'ryn and was willingly augmented with Atlantean DNA. (Its very confusing. Long story short, the kids dont look fully like Or'ryn.)

Nice Idea but a quick recommendation, You might wanna save your micros in PNG format, JPG screws up the hard work.

You are magic, I swear. I literally just realised all of my JLA uploads are JPEGs haha.
All of the saved files are BMPs, though. So im still good with all the details on the originals. Do PNGs upload to deviant art, but keep the same format? Like without the effing in the quality.
