Their prayers were answered as the five great tribes were each presented a mystical totem harnessing a power of each elemental forces. A tribe was presented the Water Totem, the totem with the power of water.
It eventually found its way in to the hands of a collector in Star City. Mari McCabe and Kuasa sought to steal it from them, but Kuasa stole it first, fighting Mari with the Totem. However, she was soon overpowered by Mari's friends and convinced to use it against Benatu Eshu. She did so, attempting to combat his fire with her water. However, she was overpowered and ultimately killed, along with the totem being completely destroyed.
