|“All was lost, until Nyad, the first Elemental Master of Water, leapt on to the beast and saw with her own eyes the source of Wojira's power. Two strange objects which Wojira wore upon her forehead. Nyad knew what she had to do. But alone, Nyad could not stop Wojira. She had to become a greater power, the ocean itself. She merged with it, a state she could never return from. She sacrificed herself to save the world.”|
|— Benthomaar in "Master of the Sea"|
Nyad was the first Elemental Master of Water and was able to control whales and ride on their backs. During a war, Nyad sacrificed herself by becoming one with the Endless Sea and took the Storm Amulet and the Wave Amulet from Wojira.
Benthomaar asked Nya if she could control whales, like Nyad. He then explains the tale again, and Maya says that she told Nya the story as a child.
Benthomaar tells the Ninja how Nyad was able to defeat Wojira by merging with the Endless Sea, which ultimately sealed her fate as she could not return to her original form.
