[[StatuesqueStunner Tall, blond,]] [[AmazonianBeauty muscular]] DarkActionGirl who has a garbled Anglo-German name, dresses like Lara Croft would if she was practical, and acts and talks, well, [[MsFanservice exhibitionistically]] by early 20th century standards. Oh, and she also has military background, being a lieutenant in someone's army... in ''[[ArtisticLicenseHistory 1914]]''. Doesn't all this ''scream'' Draka? Finally, her character design is very similar to the Draka girl on the cover of the ''Drakon'' novel. The only way it could've been any more obvious where she's from would not have [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar gotten past the radar]] in 2001.

[[WMG: Atlantis is the last remnant of [[Literature/TheSilmarillion Beleriand]].]]
Tolkien's basic arc of Middle Earth was that magic decreases as a function of time, transforming his wonderous world of Elves, Men, Dwarves, and Hobbits into our modern world over the course of thousands of years. And we know that Beleriand was destroyed thousands of years before the time period of Lord of the Rings, and sank beneath the waves. This is the catastrophic tsunami that we see at the beginning of the first Atlantis film. Atlantis was only saved from the rest of Beleriand's fate by the Heart of Atlantis and the queen joining together to save the city from the fury of the Valar. And through the Second Age, Third, Fourth, and all the intervening Ages from the War of Wrath to the First World War, Atlantis sat beneath what became the Atlantic Ocean, slowly crumbing. Whether the Atlanteans were Elves, Men, or a mix of both, I don't know.

* Rourke is an extremely practical man clearly looking forward to the worldly benefits of having (and selling) the Heart of Atlantis. The closed-circuit society of Rapture would hold little attraction for him, especially given how accustomed he's likely become to constant travel after years of mercenary work. Rourke might make a good agent on the surface if Rapture wasn't too paranoid (and then too decrepit) to have them.

* It's likely that it was the experiment of some other Incubator far back in human history, possibly an attempt at creating a perpetual-motion machine in a "cage" where absorbed souls exist in a kind of limbo, theoretically allowing them to generate energy forever. The process is contrary to how human souls are meant to be and the Incubators didn't understand that, but were aware that something wasn't working right. The individual crystals were an attempt to patch the flaw, siphoning small amounts of "fresh" energy from still-active souls to hopefully balance the "stagnant" energy generated by captured souls; as a result the Atlanteans received minor versions of a soul gem's benefits, i.e. enhanced physical abilities and healing. Inevitably Entropy crept in and the accumulating despair of the souls within the Heart weakened the crystal, essentially forming one massive composite [[spoiler:witch]]. The Heart partially neutered the [[spoiler:witch]], preventing it from manifesting physically or forming a [[spoiler:Barrier]], but they were still capable of sinking Atlantis: The only way of ending the rampage is by having the equivalent of a Puella Magi absorbed into the Heart, using her [[spoiler:wish]] to calm the souls within. Young girls are the best candidates to become Puella Magi, so when Kida's mother was forced to enter the Heart it absorbed her soul completely; Kida, being far younger (if not chronologically) and possessing a brighter soul (she's still spirited and curious even after thousands of years), was able to avoid losing herself. Of course, for the Incubators, this turned out to be a dead end and they returned to their standard method of harvesting energy.



He calls himself a 'venture capitalist', is a SocialDarwinist-style of sociopath, and sees nothing bad in killing off an entire civilization if he can make some extra money, weird that he doesn't work for Rapture.

Being turned back into humans caused the servents in ''Beauty and the Beast'' to become immortal. A few centuries after the events of that film, Cogsworth moved to America, where he changed his name and become the head of the museum. Why do I think this? Not only do they have the same voice actor, but they look and behave really similar as well.
