Nubia: Prehistory - Present Edit
In the war against the Titans, three Amazonian warriors were honored by the gods for their support and accomplishments in battle. The first was Hippolyta, the second’s name has been lost to history, and the third was a brave and skilled warrior named Nubia. After receiving her divine gifts, Nubia used her newfound immortality to explore the world. At first she sought out war and conflict, desiring honor and pride that went to the victorious and mighty in battle. But with each battle and war, Nubia’s taste for bloodshed soured.
Retiring from fighting, Nubia settled down, trying to find a lifestyle that could fill the void in her soul. When decades would go by without finding satisfaction, Nubia would move on. In this manner, she slowly traveled back to her motherland. When she arrived, Nubia found Amazonia in disarray, engulfed in war. Nubia rallied what remained of the citizenry of Amazonia and convinced many to do something they had never considered: lay down their weapons and flee. Those who followed Nubia joined her for a pilgrimage across the Mediterranean Sea and into Africa. They were not followed, but still war found them. Nubia tried to give her new tribe a peaceful existence, but the world around them was a far too brutal one.
So when Hippolyta found the few survivors remaining after several generations of raiding in Africa, it was not difficult for Nubia to convince her people to follow her once again, this time to Paradise Island, a place where the amazons could finally live in peace. Hippolyta decreed Nubia to be her daughter, naming her a princess of Themyscira. As the time went on, the island nation of Themyscira became stagnant. They were a nation of warriors and very few craftswomen. So, Nubia called upon her various skills from a plethora of professions and led the amazons in a labor revolution, training the warrior women to farm, smith, sew, build, cook, clean, read, write, sing, dance, and create art.
