This isn't necessarily a character that we need to worry about, but he serves a role in shaping a few other characters, and it helps us to get their stories right if we give him a framework.
Our Orvax Story
Orvax is a character that has shown up in two comic books, ever, both in flashbacks that were used to flesh out the backstory of Aquaman's mom, Atlanna.
We are using him pretty much the same way, although he doesn't necessarily need him to be depicted as abusive. He was simply the former Military Officer that was chosen as Atlanna's husband and king, as well as the actual father of Orm Marinus, the Ocean Master. This means that he's the king killed by Orm during his coup. It's a small role in a larger story, but it gives us a structure that helps other characters make more sense.
