Throughout the Series Edit

In Stealing Fire, Ontari meets John Murphy and is impressed that he's not scared of her and doesn't care whether the people live or die. He tells her he thought her actions were smart and they do what they have to survive. She physically and verbally abuses him, but they flirt nonetheless. Ontari often undresses in front of him, and he doesn't look away.

In Fallen, Murphy proposes he become Ontari's "fake flamekeeper" to maintain her "fake commander" status. At first she's reluctant but eventually accepts his advice. Later, she chains Murphy up and undresses in front of him, suggesting they have sex. He tells her there's someone else. She asks if she's also a Commander, but Murphy says she isn't. Ontari then wonders if she would kill Murphy for cheating on her and threatens his life. Murphy murmurs "The things I do to survive," and she forces him to have sex with her.

In Demons, Ontari witness the reunion between Murphy and Emori, but Murphy lies to her and claims to not know who Emori is. Later, Ontari learns that Emori is Murphy's former lover and threatens to kill him for his lies and betrayal. However, Jaha prevents her from doing this, claiming Murphy has information and instead Ontari orders Murphy to be locked up.
