Attea is a green-skinned humanoid frog. She wears a purple flight suit with grey gloves, goggles, and a white scarf. She is short and petite in stature, with big hands and feet.
In her Omniverse appearance, Attea has grown noticeably taller and sports a more feminine build. She also has dark green markings on her forehead and wears white, long stockings.
Attea is known to be very bratty and spoiled, and often desires perfection from all her subjects. She's "naturally cold blooded" and very manipulative, planning and scheming to get things to go her way, whether it means betraying allies or family. She also shows enjoyment in fighting and killing, even expressing the notion that destroying planets and billions of lives is fun. She doesn't like to lose, and is not above getting revenge on those who best her. She does have a more light-hearted side and a sense of humor though, albeit a rather twisted one.
Powers and Abilities
Being an Incursean, Attea has a long, prehensile tongue, like a frog.
Attea was kidnapped by Sevenseven for ransom money, but she offered him twice the money to help her dethrone her father, which she nearly did, but it was short-lived as Swampfire defeated the Incurseans and her father escaped from the dungeon and sent her to be with her mother in stasis jail much to her dismay.
Attea made her first re-appearance in Omniverse as a teenager in the episode Tummy Trouble, where she and the Incurseans under her command had captured the Gourmand Queen. It is revealed that she has become the general of the Incursean army. She fights Ben numerous times, but she is eventually defeated by Water Hazard while the rest of the Incurseans themselves are defeated by Rook and the Gourmands. Attea then made up a lie to her father, Milleous, telling him that she destroyed Peptos XI to send a message to the other planets who are still resisting them.In Vilgax Must Croak, Attea (accompanied by Sixsix, Sevenseven, and Eighteight) fights Ben and Rook in order to take out Vilgax for her father. They were ultimately defeated, and Milleous berated Attea for her failure, declaring that Vilgax's return inspired his people to fight back against the Incursean assault.
In While You Were Away, Attea teams up with Dr. Psychobos in an attempt to take over Revonnah by brainwashing the Revonnahganders with Amber Ogia. Attea then fought Ben and Rook, but was eventually defeated by Astrodactyl. Rook and Ben almost completely destroys the mind control super concentrate. However, Attea manages to grab a vial with a small amount of Amber Ogia, claiming that it is sufficient and heads toward Earth.Attea reappears in the following two-part episode, The Frogs of War, where her father leads the Incursean army in a full-scale invasion of Earth. The Plumbers' plan to attack Emperor Milleous directly fails after she assumes command while Ben and Rook deal with the Emperor, and after a brief confrontation, the Incurseans demand Earth's unconditional surrender and Ben's exile from the planet, threatening the globe with an army of mutant To'kustars. Attea is later seen chasing down Ben's team, having formed a deal off-screen with Argit, who would betray them (while she, in turn, betrayed him). Her plan is stopped by Bullfrag and she accosts them as the team mounts a rescue of Grandpa Max, Driba, and Magister Patelliday. Bullfrag briefly flirts with her before Gwen knocks her out. At the end, Attea reveals that she personally sabotaged the escape pod Ben was exiled in, knowing that he would make his return to Earth and arrest Milleous - thereby allowing her to usurp her father's position. She proposes a truce where she walks away free in exchange for pulling the Incursean and To'kustar armies out from Earth, which Ben grudgingly accepts.
Attea makes a final pass at Ben before she leaves, asking him to join her as Bullfrag and smirkingly kisses him by stretching her tongue so long she licked him in the back of his head after he adamantly refuses.
By the time of Catfight, Attea is about to be crowned Empress of the Incursean Empire, but needs to have a consort by her side. Finding the average Incursean suitors to be weaklings, she decides to go after the one Incursean she considers to be worthy of her. When she reaches Earth, she finds competition from Looma, but grudgingly works together with her to free Ben (as Rath) from Nyancy Chan's hypnotic control. When a remote control that can change Ben at will enters the fray, Attea ends up fighting for it with Looma and Nyancy, wanting to change Ben into Bullfrag and have him as her betrothed. Eventually, the remote is destroyed, and Ben convinces Attea and Looma that they don't need a "trophy husband" to be good rulers, though they then start arguing over who is the "ineffective leader" in need of a husband.
