Design[edit | edit source]
Valla is an enormous gorilla-like ape, very similar to her fellow Kong in all respects, but bears the distinction of often being drawn with a pinkish tint in her fur.
Origins[edit | edit source]
Valla was one of the Tagu Kong bred and raised by Kong trainer Ewata until she killed the Atu Shaman and was banished from the village to live among the monsters of Skull Island, despite Ewata having committed the crime.
History[edit | edit source]
After a fight in the Kong pits, Valla's friend and trainer Ewata took her and her fellow Tagu Kong to search for islands to graze on. Unfortunately, the tides took control of the boats and they drifted to Skull Island, where they were attacked by Pteranodons.
A Gigantic Iguana tipped the boat, and Valla and a Kong named Konga turned it upright while the rest of their kind fought off the monsters. After the battle, while sailing home from Skull Island, Ewata revealed to Valla that she was two months pregnant.
During a volcanic eruption on the island, the undisciplined Atu Kong escaped their pens and began to rampage. Valla calmed them and fought them off while her fellow Tagu Kong helped the humans to escape before boarding the Kong ships to sail for a new home, but the tides took them back to Skull Island.
After Ewata's husband K'reti was murdered, she sought comfort with Valla, but was informed that the Kong were acting restless and fearful of threats over their wall.
Five days after their arrival to Skull Island, Valla discovered a blood trail left by a Deathrunner attack. She and Ewata then formed a party to follow it into the jungle and eliminate the Deathrunners at their home. On their way through the jungle they encountered many Deathrunners, against which Valla fought diligently, and even was able to weaponize a Triceratops skull she found to slay some.
They eventually came to the home of the Deathrunners, where Ewata was nearly killed by V'Drell, the Atu Shaman who sought to eliminate the royal bloodline by killing her and by extension the child inside her. Valla noticed at that time, a group of Deathrunners leaving the battle at the call of their master, Gaw, who had attacked the party that had waited outside the nest. Valla then sa V'Drell attacking. She attempted to save Ewata, but the shaman threw poison scents in her face. Ewata then crushed his head with a rock. Valla was then burdened with the blame for killing V'Drell, and was branded a fugitive. Ewata used her political influence to spare her life, but she was banished from the village and forced to live in the jungles.
Valla sneaked to the Wall to watch Ewata's coronation ceremony, and stalked back to her lair where she was later awoken by the cries of an injured miner. He was incredibly frightful of Valla, recognizing her as the Untamed Kong that killed the Shaman, but all the same she carried him back to the wall, where Ewata talks the guards into sparing her as a sign of gratitude. As she made her way back, she discovered a trap laid by hunters who hated the Kong in the form of a scent trigger filled dummy. Valla accidentally unleashed the scent designed to bring up savage tendencies, and kills one of the hunters before attacking two Deathrunners that were in turn attacking a triceratops. After brutally murdering the Deathrunners she heard the cries of an infant Kong. She jumped into water to find a small cave with the baby inside. it had heavy scarring on its back, but as she reached for him, its mother, Ghost yanked him away from her.
Valla and Ghost fight for the infant, that Valla calls "K'in", and in the fight he is taken away by Pteranodons that drop him into a group of Kong hunters. Valla tries desperately to save him while Ghost just tries to kill her. Eventually, Valla rescues him and Ghost falls into a faulty mine shaft. Valla then delivers K'in over the wall to the humans.
In the following nine years, the humans began building a citadel inland. In order to protect the people, despite her banishment, Valla worked in secret to protect the workers. After a Deathrunner followed the wheel tracks to the construction site, Valla had to expose herself, and saw the former Atu Kong trainer Gret, whom she bade to leave.
After being approached by the K'in, who had grown considerably in the past nine years, the two approached the Citadel, where a Scent Trigger weapon was being unleashed in an attempt to turn all Kong mad. Valla found Ewata and Gret, whom she believed was the one who had hurt K'iin. They informed her that the Kong by the coast were in danger, and Valla to go to the shore to protect the Taguatu from the approaching rampage because she was the only one who could get there fast enough. Despite their falling out, Valla went to protect the humans.
Valla arrived at the shore, but as expected, the people ran in fear of her. However, she broke through the village wall and began to fight off the other maddened Kong with the help of the Taguatu people. When Valla was the last Kong standing, the warriors began to turn on Valla, but Sani stood between their arrows and the Kong. She began to teach the men a lesson about making monsters of their allies, but before she could make this point, she collapsed. Valla laid down on the shore next to her, and a rudimentary funeral began when Ewata and the others returned from the jungle, ending with Sani being cremated on a boat in the waters. In light of the tragedies, all remaining Kong were set free into the jungles.
Abilities[edit | edit source]
Physical Strength[edit | edit source]
Valla, like all Kong, has exhibited enormous physical strength and endurance that allowed her to hold her own in the jungles of Skull Island.
Maternal Inclination[edit | edit source]
Despite never having borne children, Valla has showcased incredible maternal instincts. This is seen as early as Issue 1, when Valla is aware of Ewata's pregnancy before even Ewata herself is, and again in Issues 7 and 11, in which her willingness to protect and care for the infant Kid Kong overrode the neural impacts of scent triggers, to a point of near-immunity when faced with them.
