Nereus, the war-like king of Xebel, has never been above ploys of assassination and conspiracy to further his own political agenda.
Nereus was the chief military officer, and later ruler, of the underwater kingdom of Xebel, which was an offshoot of the original continent of Atlantis. Xebel and Atlantis were eternally at odds, and fought each other in many wars for hundreds of years. Atlantis eventually gained the upper hand, trapping Xebel in a mystical barrier that did not permit the inhabitants to leave their home, which was located in the area known to surface dwellers as the Bermuda Triangle. Ships could enter Xebel, but with few exceptions, none could leave.
