Known Relatives: Amanda (sister), Sister Saint (mother, deceased)

Aliases: none

Base of Operations: San Francisco, California

Appearances: Vampire Tales#2 (October 1973) (2, 3/6)

Powers: Catherine had access to books of magic, such as the Lemegeton, which she could use to cast spells, such as to summon a demon. She also commanded her superhumanly strong pawn, Katabolik.

History: Catherine apparently was trained in demon-worship by her mother, who was Sister Saint of the cult Demon-Fire. Her mother apparently abandoned Catherine and Amanda at some time in the past. In reality, she trained Catherine to become ruler of a local sect of the cult while she relocated to a different sect in Maine.

Catherine continued to live with Amanda, but as Poison-Lark, led Katabolik and other cult members in efforts to capture her. She was valuable to the cult as a virgin sacrifice. Amanda escaped their first attempt with aid from Morbius, but was captured in their second. Catherine revealed her true identity to Amanda as she summoned the giant demon-spider Arachne to kill her. However, Arachne was killed by Morbius, and its death-throws brought down Demon-Fire's temple, apparently killing the cult members present, including Catherine.
