I decided (finally) I should make a timeline chronicling Curia's life so far. As I continue writing stories, I will update the timeline, adding details as they come. If something doesn't add up, let me know and I'll remove it or change it. Another thing to note is that some stories are made in a way that they can fit in any given period of time (non-canon) and so have generally not been included here. I figured that this would be a good way to have background information accessible for people. This is meant to be a companion to Curia - Story Index
Thanks to BethanyHunter CrimsonVlkyrie
for inspiration. And a huge thanks to amazonarrow
who created a much more comprehensive Amazon timeline, which I have tried to be faithful to: Amazon Timeline: 1914 A.D. - 2014 A.D.1987February 27:
A baby girl is born on Themiscyra, home of the Amazons, also known to some as Paradise Island. 1988
In the midst of a battle with the Lycans, several Amazon mothers placed their infant children into small boats to keep them safe. One of those boats floated away from shore and was not recovered when the battle was over; to this day the identity of that baby's mother is unknown.May 24:
The boat carrying the infant washes up on the shore of the tiny Brazilian fishing village Arraial de Cabo. The baby, starving and barely alive, is taken in by a kind but poor Brazilian woman, Maria Luiza Vergara. She names the baby Denisa and nourishes her back to health; as no ones comes forth to claim the baby, Maria Luiza raises the baby as her own.1992-2004
Denisa attends the small school near her home in Arraial de Cabo. She grows into a strong and healthy young woman, learning English as well as Portuguese. It becomes clear as she enters her teens that there is something different about her; her features are different and more striking than the rest of her female classmates, and she is stronger, faster, and more coordinated than any of her classmates, boys included. She graduates from the school as first in her class...of 1.2005
Denisa turns 18. Maria Luiza tells her the story of how she found her as an infant, washed ashore on a boat all alone. The story confirms what Denisa had felt for years - that she belonged somewhere else, that she came from somewhere else. With her mother's blessing, Denisa sets off to travel the world in search of her destiny.2005-2008
As Denisa traveled the world, she soon realized that it wasn't just Arraial de Cabo where she stuck out as different. Everywhere she went, she was stronger and faster than anyone else she came into contact with. Her travels eventually brought her back to Brazil in 2008 as she was invited to be a a part of the 2008 track and field team for that year's Summer Olympics. She won the gold medal for Brazil in the modern pentathlon, shattering the previous record in the process. For a short time Denisa becomes a worldwide celebrity, as Olympian gold medalists tend to do.2008
The Olympics has been over for a few weeks and Denisa has mostly gone back to being forgotten. She does accept an invite to a ceremony in New York City with other Olympians commemorating the 7th anniversary of the attacks on the Towers. At the ceremony, she meets Diana, also known to the world as Wonder Woman, for the first time. The two become fast friends over the next week in the Big Apple, and one evening Denisa tells Diana the story of how she washed up on the shores of Brazil as an infant. Diana is amazed to hear this, and she relates the story of how an Amazon child was put in a boat and lost; the more they talk, the more it becomes clear to them that Denisa may very well be that child!September 18:
Diana accompanies Denisa back to Arraial de Cabo. Maria Luiza had kept a piece of the boat and Diana confirms it is of Amazon makings. Denisa gives her adoptive mother a tearful goodbye before leaving for Themiscyra with Diana.
Queen Hippolyta greets Denisa upon her arrival with warmth and joy, and also informs Denisa that she is not sure who her birth mother was but that she was likely killed in the battle with the Lycans. It is Hippolyta herself that gives her the new name Curia, which means 'curious, full of wonder'; the Queen makes a comment that Curia reminds her very much of a younger Diana.2008-2009
Curia trains on Themiscyra with the other Amazons, including the archer Chryseis, who becomes one of her closest friends. As she already possesses great physical prowess, speed, and agility, her training focuses primarily on the fighting arts. In every area Curia proves herself to be as skilled and proficient as any of her Amazon sisters.2010-2011
As a new decade begins, Curia yearns to return to Man's World, and Hippolyta, not wanting to make the same mistakes she made with Diana, reluctantly allows Curia to leave, reminding her that she will always have a home on Themiscyra. Curia promises to return the moment she is needed and to represent her people well.
Over the next two years, keeping a low profile, Curia again travels the world; instead of searching for her heritage, Curia searches for ways to make a positive impact. In 2011, she finds herself in London and meets Black Arrow (Penelope D'arcy) as they take down a criminal known as The Dealer. Inspired by Diana, Curia realizes she can make a similar impact on the world and begins to embrace her heritage even more.
That story, at least the parts involving Curia, are here: curia-dd.deviantart.com/galler…2012
A vicious and sadistic alien calling herself Warqueen comes to Earth. Diana and Warqueen battle and it appears to everyone involved that Diana has been slain.
(Drawn from this story, not written by me: Wonder Woman vs The Warqueen
The world mourns the loss of one of its greatest heroes, and Curia returns to Themiscyra to join her sisters and Hippolyta. After a suitable time, Hippolyta decrees that there will be a contest to send a new champion to Man's World as Wonder Woman. Many Amazons compete but in the end it is Curia who is triumphant. December 20:
Curia leaves Themiscyra and returns to Man's World as Wonder Woman. Unlike her predecessor, Curia does not assume any sort of alternate persona. She makes contact with the Justice League, who reluctantly give her membership based on her status alone but make it abundantly clear that she is not worthy. She is treated like a junior member and given only the least difficult missions.2013
Curia has spent the last nine-and-a-half months learning what it is like to be Wonder Woman, and learning what a giant shadow Diana cast. Though she has her share of success, she still has garnered no respect from the rest of the League, and indeed the world; she especially has difficulty working with others in a team setting, preferring to go it alone on most of her assignments and not trusting her colleagues to help her. Entire websites are created to mock her, and the profileration of art depicting Amazons in an unflattering light increases. On October 8, Hippolyta herself summons Curia home to discuss what must be done; Curia is sent to the home of the most famous of these unflattering artists, LordSnot
to make him stop. Instead, the devious artist uses a phone app to transport Curia to another dimension - a dimension created by his art, the SnotVerse!
This adventure can be found here: curia-dd.deviantart.com/galler…December 23:
Curia exits the SnotVerse with a new perspective; going forward she is even more determined to succeed as Wonder Woman, and more willing to work as part of a team.2014February 12:
Curia finally gets her first vacation from the League. She flies home to Themiscyra only to get some unsettling news: the Aegis of Athena, an important Greek artifact, has gone missing - as has Chryseis, the new Amazon Arrow amazonarrow
, who was the first one sent to find the Aegis. Curia is sent to Queen City to enlist the aid of Athena Nikos, who is also the superheroine White Owl White0wlsuperheroine
, only to find that Athena has been transformed into an owl by the goddess Circe. Just as Circe is about to turn Curia into a mule, Ultra Woman (Tania Mazona) ladytania
shows up and knocks Circe out from behind.
What follows is an epic adventure; Curia, Tania, and Athena find and rescue Chryseis, and the four heroines spend the next three months chasing down twelve ancient Greek artifacts. In the process they face many great perils and as a team they work to overcome them. May 1:
The four heroines, aided by J'onn J'onzz - the Martian Manhunter - uncover the plot by Steve Trevor, who was willing to be in liege with some of the world's most powerful villains if it meant he could bring Diana back to life. Curia's resourcefulness and clever thinking are what finally win the day and save the world, stopping Steve and Felix Faust from achieving their ends. As a result, the perception of Curia changes drastically. Even Batman, who had been her worst critic, has no choice but to give her some respect.May 8:
Diana's body, which had been stolen by Steve Trevor and Felix Faust, is laid to rest on Themiscyra. Four of the twelve recovered artifacts are entrusted to the four heroines responsible for saving the world; Curia keeps Circe's Mirror, which had been invaluable to her throughout the Odyssey.May 22:
Curia is invited to Harley Quinn's office, where the psychiatrist-turned-psycho reveals a discovery related to Curia's potential heritage. Curia leaves in a fury, dismissing the claim.
All of these adventures can be found here: curia-dd.deviantart.com/galler…June 14:
Things have seemingly gone back to normal, and then Curia hears that her friend Chryseis is battling three villainesses at once; without thinking Curia flies in to help her friend out, not aware that something has happened to Chryseis since Curia last saw her. Chryseis is much more powerful than usual, and Curia witnesses her friend stabbing all three villainesses - Plasma Cat, The Broad, and Diabolist - with her Soul Arrows, and somehow absorbing their powers! Curia confronts her friend, never expecting Chryseis to do what she does next: run a Soul Arrow through Curia's head! Curia is knocked out as Chryseis steals all of her Wonder Woman powers and flies away.
When Curia awakes she finds herself the prisoner of the three villainesses she had come to help stop, and they keep her prisoner for months, torturing her, before Curia finally manages to escape somehow...
