Tidemistress Athissa is a general of Queen Azshara and Tidemistress of the Hatecoil naga. Queen Azshara, former leader of the ancient night elves, rules the naga with supreme authority. Her servants are many, but few can match the fanatical devotion of Athissa. At her queen's command, she is poised to lead a massive naga army into Azsuna, a region rumored to hold a long-lost titan relic of power. Nothing will stand between Athissa and this prize - not the cursed night elf spirits who haunt the land nor the Horde and Alliance forces that are gathering on the Broken Isles.[1]


When the hero enters the Ruins of Nar'thalas, Athissa tells her brethren to find the titan relic  [Tidestone of Golganneth] with no hesitation. Short tempered, she questions a ghost to know where the location of it is. She gets interrupted by the hero, so she fights them. Tired of being bothered, she freezes them and exclaims that the Tidestone will be theirs as she teleports away.

Nar'thalas Academy was the location of the shattered remains of the relic. The hero was able to collect them but gets frozen after it was brought together. Her and Warlord Parjesh took the hero in as an acceptable slave as the Tidestone can be prepared to be rebuilt by the queen herself. Prince Farondis decided that it's time to pursue of assisting the champion because he couldn't just simply wait while they fight his battles. He reached the academy entrance when he saw the two naga, with the hero in tow. Athissa telling Parjesh that the slave was not to be awakened. Farondis followed them closely and then engaged them when they were at a stopping point. The Tidemistress in combat with the Prince was overheard by her warlord that he will take the prison to the slave pens. Furious, she is going to tell Azshara of who she saw.

At the final confrontation, Athissa held her ground as Parjesh took the shattered pieces of the titan relic. She was met in combat by not just the hero and Farondis, but the ghosts of the past of the Princes' royal guard as well. She has met a quick death only to not see the Tidestone fully repaired.
