Chosen Chapter 13: From the Deep

Portrayed by

Robbie Amell

"Her name is Nadia. I met her while exploring a sunken human ship. She was the most beautiful thing I ever saw. I could instantly feel my heart warm up."
—Ridley to Violet.

Ridley is a merman who fell in love with a mermaid named Nadia.


Ridley met Nadia while exploring the seas and they fell in love. They wanted to run away together and live on land, as their own kind would not understand. Nadia stole a couple of bracelets from a Sea Hag that would grant them human legs. However, before they could run away, Nadia was captured by Bryant and Harper, who wanted to obtain her immortality.

Ridley went to find help and ended up in San Francisco, where he sensed powerful magic. He lured Violet to the docks and asked her for help. When the Chosen realized the wizards had help finding the merpeople, Ridley tracked the Sea Hag and they confronted her. Before she was vanquished, the hag revealed that the wizards planned to obtain Auger Shells from Atlantis, so Ridley led them there.

After arriving on Atlantis and splitting up, Ridley's group was attacked by Harper, though Ridley resisted her power and knocked her out. After obtaining her location, Ridley was reunited with his love and the other merpeople were freed.

Duncan then enchanted some rings that would grant them legs. By selling some of their underwater treasure, they were able to get an apartment and Ridley got a job. They stopped by to thank the Chosen and Nadia informed them that Ridley had proposed to her.
