Powers and Abilities

Nautika’s powers’ origin is not well known. Anyway, she has strong ties with water. She’s as well at ease in the air or underwater. She can fly and project strong lightnings of bio-electrical energy.

Apparently, her StormWatch training included a good demolitions package as she looks like an authority on the subject.


She joined StormWatch at the same time as Battalion and Flashpoint, drafted by John Windsor. She was a full member of the original StormWatch Prime, along with her future husband Sunburst. She married Sunburst just before their tragic mission in Kuwait.

During the Gulf War, she, Flashpoint and Sunburst were captured by the MERCs, while the rest of StormWatch Prime (namely Battalion and Backlash) thought they died in the explosion of a bomb. In fact, the prisoners were sent to Gamorra, where the Daemonite Lord Defile brainwashed them to make them double agents.

They were freed by StormWatch 1. Though Sunburst had nightmares related to the harsh treatment they received at the hands of Defile’s goons, she stayed oblivious of the mind games the Daemonite was running on them. Indeed, she downloaded classified StormWatch data on the WildCATs to him.

After their release, their trial by fire was the exposure of Defile’s plan to bomb several historical monuments worldwide. Since they worked out well together, he estimated they were combat ready again, and arrange to team the three of them together. Nevertheless, the missions they were given involved more investigation than actual combat.

When Flashpoint went on a personal crusade to settle the score with the MERCs she and Sunburst were sent by Synergy to arrest him. They stopped him just before he could get the story of their capture from Deathtrap.

In the ’Wildstorm Rising‘ episode, Nautika and Sunburst revealed Defile’s influence when they betrayed their team-mates. They followed Spartan in the Kherubim ship to take control of it. But Sunburst managed to break Defile’s control, so the Daemonite ordered Nautika to neutralize him. Sunburst left the scene crippled and unable to walk again. Nautika left it with the memory of doing it to her husband.

After that, they followed heavy medical treatments to be cleared of Defile’s influence. And Nautika managed to give back his confidence to her husband. He could not walk, but he could still fly and fight.

When Bendix reorganized the team after ’Fire From Heaven’, Sunburst and Nautika were definitively removed from active duty to be Tactical Combat Analysts. Fahrenheit called upon their explosives knowledge to solve the murder of the former StormWatch rookie Undertow.


She’s a short woman. Her skin is greenish, her eyes completely green and her short hair are dark blue. Her face lacks a nose. Her hand are webbed.


As far as we can see, she hardly breaks StormWatch rules. She trusts her team-mates to watch her back as she watch theirs. She cares much about her husband, even more since she crippled him.
