|“||I deserve this throne. I was raised for it. Snatched from my parents by the Queen of Azgeda. I suffered her cruelty. I won the Conclave. The Ambassadors don't get to judge me, and neither do you.||”|
|— to Murphy [src]|
Ontari was a Nightblood from the Ice Nation and after Lexa's death came to Polis in order to become the next Commander. However, she never won the conclave but simply killed all other Nightbloods while they were asleep. Moreover, she was missing the Flame that truly made someone a Commander.
Jaha managed to convince her to take the chip that allowed her to enter the City of Light and as a result of being controlled by A.L.I.E. she convinced most her people to also take the chip. When Clarke and the others were trying to put the Flame into her, A.L.I.E. told Jaha to kill her. The controlled Jaha then struck Ontari in the head, which rendered her brain dead.
She later died after her body was used as part of a blood transfusion directly with her heart to allow Clarke to accept the Flame.
Early Life Edit
Ontari was born a Nightblood. When she was a child, Ontari was taken from her family by Queen Nia of Azgeda. While growing up, Ontari suffered from Nia's cruelty, which possibly led to her being loyal to her, thus making Ontari more brutal and ruthless.
Throughout the Series Edit
Ontari is ruthless and hostile toward her enemies, but also has a soft spot for some people, such as Murphy.
Physical Appearance Edit
Ontari is small and average size, with long brown hair, brown eyes and scars on her face.
Ontari was very protective of Nia and was deeply affected by her queen's death. She jumped on Clarke, putting a knife to her throat when she saw her, blaming her for Nia's death. In Fallen, Ontari says that she suffered from Nia's cruelty while growing up, which possibly led to her being loyal to Nia.
Roan was Ontari's King. She didn't agree with him on his ways of handling things and had always planned to become Commander so that he would bow to her and obey her orders.
Ontari strongly disliked Lexa since she was the one who killed Nia. Shortly after Lexa's death, Ontari did not waste any time in claiming her throne, wanting to become the next Heda.
- Main article: Murphy and Ontari
Murphy and Ontari have a complicated sexual and abusive relationship. Upon meeting for the first time, Ontari verbally and physically abuses Murphy. Despite the abuse, they both flirt with each other. Ontari doesn't mind being naked in front of Murphy, and Murphy doesn't bother to look away. In Fallen, Murphy proposes to be Ontari's "fake flamekeeper" to her "fake commander". Reluctant at first, Ontari accepts his advice. Later that episode, Ontari chains Murphy while she undresses in front of him. She then proposes for them to have sex to which Murphy refuses, telling her about Emori. Ontari asks him if Emori would kill him for cheating on her and threatens his life. Murphy ends up giving in while murmuring: "The things I do to survive".
