Powers: Embyrre can generate great amounts of heat and flame. She is apparently immune to conventional disease and the effects of aging.

History: BTS-Long ago, Embyrre was one of the Blood, who fought against the evil of Zarathos. She may even date back as far as 20, 000 BC.
At some point, Embyrre turned from the Blood, and became one of the Fallen, who instead worshipped and served Zarathos.

(Midnight Sons Unlimited#4(fb)) - Centuries, or perhaps millennia ago, the Fallen assaulted a South American tribe (Incan? Aztec? Mayan?).

BTS - The Fallen were banished to an unnamed dimension in the distant past, and Embyrre presumably was among them.

BTS - The Fallen regained access to Earth via the machinations of their own sorcerous ally, Salome'.

(Spirits of Vengeance#17) - Several of the Fallen, including Embyrre, appeared in Cypress Hill Cemetery, rescuing Zarathos from defeat at the hands of the Midnight Sons.

(Nightstalkers#15) - Zarathos and the Fallen attacked the Midnight Sons briefly, then abducted Caretaker and invaded and took over Caretaker's former base below the cemetery. The Nightstalkers (Blade, Frank Drake, and Hannibal King) followed and briefly fought them, but Drake was trapped and the others for forced to temporarily flee.

(Ghost Rider III#45-BTS) - Patriarch joined the Fallen.

(Marvel Comics Presents I#145/3) - Embyrre and the Fallen observed as Patriarch and Zarathos plotted against the Blood and continued to torture Caretaker.

(Morbius#17) - Embyrre and Rubach were sent to locate Raydar, Embyrre's father, and either convince him to join the Fallen, or, failing that, to slay him. This brought them into conflict with Morbius and Hannibal King, who were also seeking to locate Raydar, to enlist him against Zarathos and the Fallen. Embyrre fought against Morbius and was overpowered by him. She was impressed when Morbius did not kill her, seeking instead only to stop her from killing Raydar. She was similarly impressed when Morbius fought against his own demon-possessed lover, Martine, to save Raydar. Embyrre then saved Morbius from the demon, Parasite, which tried to possess him, destroying Parasite in the process. Following this struggle, Embyrre switched her allegiance back to the Blood, and was reunited with her father. Embyrre then used her healing powers to bring Martine back to life.

(Marvel Comics Presents I#146/1) - Embyrre was alongside the Midnight Sons when they fell for a trick by Metarchus posing as Caretaker. Embyrre's power was keying in driving Metarchus off.

(Midnight Sons Unlimited#4) - Embyrre and Raydar sat out the next conflict with the Fallen, but they then joined with the Midnight Sons to locate Foundry, in hopes of using her knowledge against Zarathos. They traveled to Foundry's South American Jungle Base, but were followed by Zarathos and the Fallen. As the Midnight Sons slew the Fallen, Zarathos drew power from the last of the Fallen, Embyrre herself (though she had turned against him, she still had the connection). Morbius recognized this and tried to kill Embyrre. As she fought back against him, Raydar attacked Zarathos, hoping to free his daughter from him. Zarathos slew Raydar and then offered Embyrre the power to resurrect him by joining fully with Zarathos again. Embyrre refused and incinerated herself, draining Zarathos' power supply enough that the Midnight Sons were able to defeat him.

 

Comments: Created by Howard Mackie and...it's hard to tell...everyone who wrote and drew the "Siege of Darkness" had a part, I guess.
