Nadya Markov is a young half-infernal, the daughter of an unknown Demon of Air and Darkness. Her mother, Natalia, had just finished college and moved into a small house in the Millenium City suburbs when she found out, in particularly awful fashion, that the nice young married couple next door were dark sorcerers and she would be the perfect vessel to seal a dark bargain. Due to a distraction provided by the sorcerers' infant child, she managed to escape after the foul deed, report the awful crime, and recieve assistance in relocating and raising a part-infernal child from the Trismegistus Council. As Nadya grew up and learned how awfully cliche her origin was, she decided to turn her devilish powers to the study of magic to fight against infernal forces. Her training was interrupted when the sorcerers captured her again, but she managed to form a friendship with their daughter Livia, who would become the occasional heroine Blacklight, and escape. Having lived her life dealing with demonic instincts and still chosen to fight on behalf of the innocent, Nadya has no sympathy for evildoers and will not hesitate to steal the very life from those who would harm others. She has trained hard to bend her powers away from pure destruction and possesses potent curative abilities. Since joining the The Ministry of Order, she has become much more social, often hanging out with Gundancer, and has tried to attend all of the Ministry's public events. She remains somewhat shy, especially around Metal Raven, for some reason.
