Pacifica was menaced by the evil Titan; Marina, along with the rest of the inhabitants had been sworn to silence by the villain, on pain of being destroyed if they spoke, and so they used gestures to communicate instead.
Kidnapped by Titan, Marina served as his slave until Captain Troy Tempest of the submarine Stingray assisted her in escaping. She became a valued member of his crew and of WASP, the organisation he belonged to, aiding in their ongoing battle against Titan.
