History

Roma (X-Factor vol1 119 pg05)

Daughter of Merlyn, Roma assisted her father in the empowering of many members of his inter-dimensional Corps of heroes. In her persona as "Lady of the Northern Skies" she was present the night that Brian Braddock was chosen to become Captain Britain, and watched as he took his first faltering steps down the road to becoming a hero. She met him a second time when he was brought to a shadowy dimension to be given his star scepter. When the Captain and his ally the Black Knight (Dane Whitman) later came to Otherworld to help defend Camelot against the forces of Necromon, she met him once more, this time using the name Roma. She led the knights of Camelot in battle against the trolls and goblins who besieged the castle, cutting a swathe through the enemy forces.

When Captain Britain was slain by the Fury after he had been sent to the damaged Earth-238, Roma worked with her father to resurrect him. While Merlyn rebuilt the dead hero's mind, she reconstructed his body, transferring his powers from his costume to his body, and enhancing his abilities further, in preparation for the trials to come. Together they watched their champion return to his home world, unaware of horrors in his future. Much to Roma's shock, Merlyn was apparently slain as he manipulated things to have his champions destroy the reality warping mutant known as Mad Jim Jaspers. After Jaspers was destroyed, Roma summoned the Corps to Otherworld, where she gave her father a state funeral.

She subsequently followed plans he had set in motion prior to his death, forging a new weapon, the superhero team called Excalibur. Roma allied herself with the X-Men to battle a foe known as the Adversary, who seemed to take her captive (though she may have allowed this in order to further her plans); after the X-Men, including Captain Britain's sister Betsy, seemingly died to power a spell cast by Forge to bind the Adversary, she revived them (even though this freed the powerful foe they had died to defeat), made them invisible to electronic detection, and gave them the Siege Perilous; the world believed them dead. She used shared grief to unite surviving X-Men Nightcrawler and Shadowcat with Meggan and Captain Britain, then bonded them together saving Rachel Summers, a.k.a. Phoenix, from Mojo's Warwolves. Excalibur subsequently defeated Necrom, the foe they had been gathered to battle, and Merlyn revealed he was still alive after all. Roma however remained in charge of Otherworld.

She subsequently faced the Adversary again, this time alongside X-Factor; this battle forced Forge to reconcile his technological mutation with his mystical heritage. Roma also presided over the wedding of Brian Braddock and Meggan. Following this she crossed paths with the Fantastic Four, when she decided that young mutant Franklin Richards was too powerful to be left free; the Human Torch convinced her to entrust him to his parents to raise, and she backed down.

Otherworld was attacked by forces led by Mastermind, an insane computer, and Roma was overthrown. Upon being rescued by a new Excalibur temporarily formed by Brian Braddock, she destroyed Mastermind and yielded the throne of Otherworld to Brian. Soon afterwards she seemed to die at the hands of a being called Abraxas... However, like her father, death seems less than permanent, and she recently was seen back in charge of Otherworld, sending Captain Britain and Meggan to protect Earth-616 from the "House of M" reality warp.
