Katrina "Kate" Margya Joszinya Twardovski, code name Nacht, is a member of the Bad Seeds. She practices Erebeal Magic, which deals with shadows. Her last name has been spelled variously, including Twardovski/Tvardowski/Tvardovski; transliteration will do this.
Her only known relative was thought to be Marzena Twardovski, the Bell Witch, who is a member of the Grand Hall of Sinister Wisdom. Nacht does not have a favorable opinion of her mother: "Give Mumzie her due, she’s a total loss otherwise, but she does have a flair for getting out of Azkaban." The resentment seems justified, since Marzena is only interested in Kate when she's useful, like when she ran a cult scam using the then six-year-old Katrina as focal point.
Marzena has deliberately withheld information on the identity of Kate's father as a way to bait Nacht into working for her. Eventually, though, Kate discovers the truth about her parentage, freeing herself from Marzena's influence.
Nacht has a legal guardian, the California superhero Sunburst. "Sunny" made an effort to provide Kate with a "traditional" Christmas, with snow, caroling and festive sweaters. Kate professed not having appreciated it.
She's usually expressionless. What little she says is usually in a flat monotone. She has been described as resembling Christina Ricci as Wednesday Addams, both in appearance and in demeanor. When she's not doing anything else, one of her hobbies appears to be scaring Belphegor, at least by preference.
Powers and abilitiesEdit
Katrina was dipped by Marzena into the Erebos when she was still a baby, which make her one of the most powerful wielders of Erebeal magic in the world.  This allows her to manipulate shadows as a semi-solid substance, and move through shadows from one place to another, among other effects.
She also has the uncanny ability of reducing grown men to tears in a matter of minutes, just by silently staring at them. Whether this is a psychic ability or just a result of her unconventional demeanor is still unknown.
She has a crystal-clear soprano singing voice with "grand opera quality", although she seldom exhibits this talent.
Due to being attuned to the Erebos, she is adversely affected by exposure to moly. But it has to be the real Sacred Moly, which might not be what your average gardening supply store has available.
She suffers from strong nausea when using her powers to move over water.
Due to the way she was treated by Marzena, Kate has a psychological inability of expressing love and similar emotions. A few people, like Sunburst and Jadis, saw through this cold façade and formed close relationships with her nevertheless.
