What took them so long to find Atlanna?


They located Mera within a few hours but it took a few years to find Atlanna?

Make no sense.

Mera had that tracking bracelet but I don't think there is really an explanation on how they found Atlanna.

You would think that with their advance technology they would have located her within a month or so.

Maybe their tech/tracking stuff is useless outside of water. What would make sense was to work out the probability of different locations along the coast she would have likely washed up on. Then sent out scouts which would have had to be high-borns or whatever they called them as they are the only ones that can breathe air. Whether that was too much of a risk I don't know. They can't exactly send their stormtroopers door to door to places on the coast with a photo (do they even have photos?) of Atlanna without broadcasting their existence to the world.

still it took them way too long to find her unless the king or someone high up forbid them to search for her

reply

Who knows. There was a bunch of stuff that didn't make sense.

They didn't have a tracker on Atlanna though. They had a lot of ground to cover to find her.

Atlanna wasn't supposed to be exiled. Orm's father had her thrown into the trench as a form of execution. She survived the execution attempt through her own skill. They all thought she was dead so nobody was looking for her.
