About King Triton
King Triton is the Sea King and Ariel's father. Triton is the king of the underwater kingdom of Atlantica. He is a merman and the father of seven daughters: Aquata, Andrina, Arista, Attina, Adella, Alana, and Ariel. He is referred as "Daddy" or "Father" by them all. Triton is very protective of his daughters, which often turns into a conflict with Ariel.
Triton wields a powerful trident, which he can use to manipulate magic. He has used the trident to destroy objects, create underwater whirlpools, form rainbows, change merpeople to humans and vice versa. This trident is the source of Triton's power, and is craved by the sea witch Ursula as well as his other enemies.
Triton is often depicted as somewhat oppressive when it comes to certain laws he has placed especially early in the original film when regarding humans.
