When Dyesebel saved a young man from his near-death experience, it would seem that she had found what others haven't in their long lives, her one true love. In order for her to become close towards the man she saved, she inquired Amafura to receive a necklace, in exchange for her beauty, with the legs she wished for. But by combining the same necklace that Doña Guada has, she is now having her beautiful face and is ready to seek revenge against Berbola.
Dyesebel must choose between Erebus or Fredo. Her one true love is Fredo. She's wears the crown to become a queen of Sirenea with Erebus and Lucia beside her but only for a short time. She challenges Dyangga in a final battle. She finally kills a monstrous Dyangga with the scepter's finishing move.

Doña Ava Legaspi
|Lucia is the real mother of Dyesebel, a martyr who decides to forsake her own happiness just to save the lives of those she loves. She is also a former mermaid and she used to rule the sea, but when she became human, another mermaid, Dyangga, stole her throne. She married Tino Montemayor and had a child named Dyesebel. Days after Tino died, she reinvented herself as Doña Ava Legaspi; stepmother to Fredo and adoptive mother to Sheila Mae. |
She quickly remembers that she's the true Queen of Sirenea. Lucia and Dyesebel are reuniting after she found out that Isabel and Dyesebel are one.

She ends up as a reigning queen after her daughter.
|Rufa Mae Quinto ||Amafura ||Amafura grants the wishes of the merpeople in Serenea for a price. She gave Dyesebel a necklace, to exchange her beauty for the feet she had longed for. As the sea witch, Amafura will continue to ask for the most important things that a mermaid/merman can offer in exchange for granting their dreams. When Berbola wanted legs, Amafura refused. Instead, Berbola stole her mother's scepter to have another magic duel. |
Amafura lost all her powers, and Berbola stole the magical pearl, which all of the magic contains within it. She retrieved the white pearl but transformed into a tiny turtle.

After asking Mother of Pearl to grant him legs to protect Dyesebel and prove his love, he received a conditional magical pearl by which Dyesebel should love him instead of Fredo or else he will die. After Erebus and Fredo succeeded in taking Dyesebel out of the hospital as Betty's captive, Erebus managed to convince the love of his life, Dyesebel, to return to their underwater kingdom, Sirenea. Then after the defeat of Dyangga and Dyesebel's accession to the throne, he proposed to marry Dyesebel. However, Fredo managed to interrupt and stop the wedding ceremony before Dyesebel took her vows.
Towards the end, he finally relinquished his claims for Dyesebel's love and accepted the consequence of death ensuring her eventual happiness. He never disclosed his condition to Dyesebel for the fact that he did not want to her to worry and or use it as a reason to choose him over Fredo showing his ever unwavering nobility.
