For an unknown amount of time, V'Lara was a resident of his own dungeon, banished there by his power-hungry adviser Gargon, who had overpowered him in a secret coup, and stolen the Scepter of Atlantis, a magical staff which was the source of his power. Without it, V'Lara was transformed into a feeble and weak man by Gargon.
V'Lara first met Wildwing when he too was imprisoned in the very same dungeon. He managed to free them both, and returned V'Lara's scepter to him. In true royal fashion, the prince then thanked Wildwing before he departed to pursue a fleeing Saurian.

- Prince V'Lara speaks in a manner similar to Elvis Presley, possibly in reference to Presley's title as the "King of Rock and Roll".
