Hunter is a fierce mermaid and natural-born hunter who came with Eliza to land. She is new to land and just learning about interacting with humans.
Hunter is slim with olive skin and Aquamarine eyes.
Hunter was loyal to Ryn and her tribe, but at times can prove to be egotistical. She is also reluctant, especially when her life is at stake.
She proves her loyalty to Tia's by kidnapping Hope and bringing her to Tia, but is ultimately rewarded with abandonment and dishonor.
Throughout the Series
As it was mating season, she instinctively tried to seduce a drunkard in the men's bathroom until Xander brought her out. After Ryn shows her and Eliza the human way of mating, she and Eliza return home per Ryn's command.
In "Revelations", she arrives with the colony to help Ryn, forcing Tia to retreat. In the following episode, she and Cami train Ryn to learn combat skills for both land and sea to be able to fight Tia.
In the episode "Life and Death", she surveys her colony's territory, following Tia where she goes eventually discovering her mer-people army she has united.
In "Mommy and Me", she is spotted by one of the merman warriors and swims away. She returns to inform Eliza, Viv, Cami, and Katrina to be prepared. In a plane wreckage, Tia's tribe surrounds them and she witnesses Katrina switch sides.

When Tia arrives, she and Ryn duel Katrina in melee combat, she is injured but remains alive however, mistaken for dead.
