Nocturna

Natalia Knight


History

Nocturna is the adopted daughter of crime boss Charles Knight. Knight provided Natalia with every luxury, every advantage possible, while not letting her know of his career. When he died she learned where his money came from, and met and fell in love with Knight’s son, Anton.

Natalia’s love of the night inspired her interest in astronomy. An accident involving a laser experiment leeched all color from her skin, and made her sensitive to light. This did not really hamper her career, but she applied to have her medical bills covered by her employer, the Wayne Foundation. Bruce Wayne’s business manager, Lucius Fox, delayed the payments until he had a chance to investigate Ms. Knight’s case.

Ms. Knight decided to take that which the Wayne Foundation would not give her and began a career of robbing the rich and the politicians as a form of revenge.

Natalia also petitioned the Gotham adoption court for Jason Todd to become her son. She won the case, but Jason located her loot from her burglaries and has it turned over to the authorities. Jason’s adoption was rescinded and he returned to Wayne Manor.

She knows the secret ID of the Batman and Robin, and is in love with them both, having maternal feelings toward Jason.


Description

Natalia stands 5-7 and weighs 127 lbs. She has black hair and blue eyes and very pale skin. Her jewelry is a vast array of weaponry, from explosive beads to shuriken-like bangles. She has a belt made of crescents, each razor sharp on the underside, that can be used to flay a foe.
