The Brine is one of the seven kingdoms of Atlantis.
After Atlantis sank into the ocean, The Brine split off into its own kingdom. Over time the citizens of the Brine Kingdom had devolved into crab like creatures who became known as brutes and hostile. At one point, Orm, seeking the position of Ocean Master, attacked the Brine with the hopes of conquering them. The battle resulted in heavy casualties on both sides, with the Brine King nearly perishing if not for Aquaman saving his life.
- The Brine resemble crab-like sentient beings that adapted to a harsh, heated environment.
- Packaging for the Brine King in the official Aquaman film toyline incorrectly identified the Brine King as an enemy to Aquaman, though he previously had no allegiance to either of the characters packaged alongside him.
