Lady Dorma is a powerful and outspoken member of the Atlantean Senate.
Lady Dorma was a member of the most noble family in Atlantis next to the royal family. She is known to be the only member of the Atlantean Senate who would actually argue with Namor openly; when he was wrong, it was a trait of hers that Namor respected, but other times, he found it irritating. Regardless her ideas often benefited Atlantis.
In Marvel Comics, Lady Dorma was the cousin of Namor and his close confidant in many of his original appearances in the 1940s, and was reintroduced in the late 1960s and early 1970s as his lover and wife-to-be, before her death.
