Marina is the third member of the Stingray crew. She is actually an amphibian inhabitant of the sea rescued from slavery during the WASP's first face-to-face encounter with the underwater world. Like many other undersea races, Marina is able to breathe air as well as water. Essentially human in appearance, her only unusual physical characte­ristics are webbed feet and green hair.

Marina was born on the 28th of May 2046 in the under­water city of Pacifica. Marina is a princess, being the daughter of Aphony, the ruler of Pacifica. Marina is extremely intelligent and artistic with special musical talents. Her mother died when she was only 8 marine years old.

Marina was captured by Titan of the underwater city of Titanica during a raid on Pacifica and enslaved for a year. She was rescued by Troy Tempest and George Sheridan after helping them escape from captivity and impending execution. Marina remained with the wasps after her rescue and is valued for her expert knowledge of the underwater world. Unable to speak (as are all of her people), she communi­cates with her own kind by means of mental telepathy and with others by sign language.

Marina's hobbies include piano study and learning about the surface world. She has a pet seal named Oink which once saved Stingray from destruction by sticker bomb. Marina is romantically involved with Troy Tempest and despite competing in this arena with Atlanta Shore, she remains Atlanta's best friend.
