Krypton Wiki

"Oh, Mighty Rao, before your grace, we wandered lost in the darkness. Until you appeared and led us into the light."

Ona is a rankless Kryptonian, and a friend of the House of El. She is the daughter of Rhom.


When Ona's mother worked night shifts, Ter and Charys-El would often look after Ona for her. After their passing, Ona and her mother visited Seg to offer their condolences. Ona gave him a rock with a House of El sigil on it.[1]

Sometime later, Lyta-Zod commanded the Sagitari to hunt for Black Zero members in the Rankless district. During the operation, Ona watched her mother, whose mind was under Brainiac's influence, kill three Sagitari soldier and flee.[2]

Ona joins the Religious Guild.

Ona started praying to the Rao to bring her mother back. Seg and Kem later learned that Rhom was affected by Brainiac's sentry and she would not survive for long. Kem decides to tell Ona about Rhom and assumes guardianship over her. Later, during the Voice of Rao's glorification parade, Ona presents him with a gift. The Voice is touched by the gesture and makes her a novice within the Religious Guild.[3]

Ona was invited in VOR's lair to test her if she is worthy to have a faith in him. He told her that he can hear her mother's thoughts and memories, giving her the offer of eternal life (in actuality uploading himself into her head). Ona was unsure and after some thinking she decided not to accept his offer, reasoning that she liked living in the real world. At the Hall of Justice, VOR organised the ceremony, only to be cut by Dev-Em due to the bomb in the Hall, but in reality a conspiracy plan to kill VOR. His companions, including Ona, were evacuated from this place.[4]

Ona participated in the last stage of religious ceremony where VOR standed on altar covered in flames to show them that he is a transcendent being who will give an eternal life. She later gave the blessings to some citizens in Rankless District where she met Kem again. Although Kem tried to convince her to come with him and resistance movement, despite loving Kem, Ona (in her blind belief) decided to stay with VOR. After VOR was apparently killed by Seg and Black Zero in Genesis Chamber, she was guarded by few Sagitari soldiers, who were soon killed by VOR. Frightened, VOR calmed her, but he soon brainwashed her. She came to the resistance HQ and Kem was happy to see her, but noticed something odd. Adam Strange quickly intervened by following her who was transformed into the living bomb, activating the shield from Zeta Ray device to protect Seg and Kem from explosion, sacrificing himself to save them.[5][6]
