Powers/Abilities: Nakota is one of Lilith's demonic offspring. She apparently possesses enhanced durability (remained unharmed after getting tossed through a window, but a good punch still knocked her out), superhuman stamina (running nearly 90 miles without losing her breath) and enough strength to jump at least 10 feet in the air from a standing position. Her main ability is a special vision that allows her to track down any being on command and broadcast through her eyes whatever the person was doing at that moment. In some cases she showed a series of recent events and visions, but she apparently can't predict the future. While using her vision her eyes swell to multiple times their normal size and become solid green without visible irises or pupils. Even after using her special vision her sclera remains green for a short time. Using her vision was very taxing and left her fatigued.

She was not a fighter and actually avoided combat whenever she could.

(Ghost Rider III#28 - BTS) - Lilith showed Dan Ketch's spirit a vision of her children, including Nakota.

(Morbius: The Living Vampire I#1) - Lilith, accompanied by Pilgrim and Blackout, found her children Fang and Nakota at the New York City gothic club known as Limelight. Fang and Nakota kneeled before their mother. She later asked Nakota to look out into the night and use her special vision to show her Morbius, a man Lilith must kill. Lilith saw in Nakota's eyes their enemies Ghost Rider and John Blaze, the scientist David Langford, an elixir, a desperate woman (Martine Bancroft) and Michael Morbius. As a result she sent Fang to taint the serum intended for Morbius with his demonic blood.

   Lilith was very disappointed when she saw in Nakota's eyes that Morbius had survived, but decided to get her revenge on him on another day. She then asked Nakota to show her the whereabouts of Victoria Montesi.

(Ghost Rider/Blaze: Spirits of Vengeance#2) - Lilith observed through Nakota's eyes a battle between Steel Wind and her enemies Ghost Rider and John Blaze. She learned of the latter's plan to kill her Lilin and planned to destroy them when they arrived in New York City. From Steel Wind's words she also learned that a possible ally (Centurious) had entered the fray.

(Darkhold: Pages from the Book of Sins#1) - Through the eyes of Nakota, Lilith showed DeGuzman how his ninjas had failed once again to kill Victoria Montesi. Lilith suggested an alliance and DeGuzman gave her full control over his ninjas, who ended up mutilated and transformed by her child Doc. Lilith later watched through Nakota's eyes how the Darkhold Redeemers, Ghost Rider and Blaze caught the Chameleon Worms and their host Donald Walsh.

   Pilgrim teleported Lilith, Doc and Nakota to Central Park where they cut off Victoria Montesi's escape route while the Darkholders' ninjas attacked her. Lilith and her children merely watched Ghost Rider, Johnny Blaze, Louise Hastings and Sam Buchanan protect Montesi from the ninjas and the mutated Darkhold-mutated Donald Walsh. Nakota was left behind when Pilgrim teleported Lilith and Doc to safety after Lilith was hit by Blaze's shotgun. Nakota immediately started running away from Ghost Rider and her other enemies.

(Ghost Rider/Blaze: Spirits of Vengeance#3) - Nakota made it to Millbrook, New York when Ghost Rider once again closed in on her. Before he could finally catch her, a portal created by Pilgrim opened in front of Nakota and she was brought to the Boston harbor where Pilgrim told her she would serve as bait before leaving her there on her own. Ghost Rider overheard Pilgrim telling Nakota that she was needed in Boston and joined by Johnny Blaze later headed there.

(Nightstalkers#1) - Ghost Rider and Johnny Blaze caught Nakota at midnight. Ghost Rider tossed her through a closed diner's window and while she begged for her mother to bring down her wrath on their enemies, Ghost Rider used his Penance Stare on her. Ghost Rider saw glimpse of a vision in Nakota's eyes that showed him in addition to Lilith and her children, possible new allies known as the Nightstalkers (Blade, Drake and King). Nakota promised that they would pay for their deeds, but Johnny Blaze tossed her against the diner's cash register.

(Ghost Rider III#31) - Nakota was present with Blackout, Doc, Fang and Pilgrim when Lilith tended to her mutilated child Meatmarket, who had fallen in battle with the Nightstalkers, Ghost Rider and Johnny Blaze.

   After teleporting with Lilith to Greenland, Nakota witnessed the birth of a new Lilin resembling a monstrous version of Dan Ketch. When the Midnight Sons arrived to stop Lilith, Nakota hid behind a stone and when the new Lilin tore through his own kind, she hid. The battle ended when Ghost Rider forced Lilith's own head through the vortex opening in her belly. As the sole survivor Nakota rose from the snow and decided to run before the cold killed her, but Lilith reappeared and while Nakota claimed that she had nothing to give to her mother, Lilith needed nourishment and consumed Nakota and her dead brethren to regain her strength. Nakota went down screaming.

(Ghost Rider III#41) - In Greenland Lilith was lying next to the skeletons of her children, including Nakota. She was pregnant with her children, but needed somebody's help to give birth to them once again. She sent out the call and it was answered by her wayward child Outcast, who ripped open her belly with his claws. Blackout, Doc, Meatmarket, Nakota and Pilgrim were reborn through the vortex in adult form. Blackout immediately set out to find Dan Ketch and tried to force Nakota to show him where he was. Blackout quickly tossed her aside because even though her eyes were helpful she was otherwise weak and unable to help him.

   Nakota later witnessed the arrival of Centurious in Greenland and saw her mother agree to an alliance with him.

(Morbius: The Living Vampire I#13) - Through Nakota's eyes Lilith witnessed how Parasite took possession of Martine Bancroft. She was sure that Morbius' loyalty to whom he believed to be his beloved would break the strength of the Midnight Sons and bring Morbius (still infected with the Lilin Bloodthirst) to her side.

(Ghost Rider/Blaze: Spirits of Vengeance#16) - In Cypress Hills Cemetery Nakota walked with Lilith and Pilgrim when Lilith told Centurious that there was nothing else he could offer to her after Zarathos had emerged from his form. Nakota was standing in awe in front of Zarathos and witnessed Lilith form an alliance with him. Centurious angrily attacked and Nakota jumped high into the air to escape the energy blast, but Zarathos quickly took care of Centurious. Ghost Rider, Johnny Blaze and Vengeance then arrived alongside Caretaker to take out Zarathos. A fissure opened in the ground and after Ghost Rider used the Medallion of Power against Zarathos, who, along with Lilith, Nakota and Pilgrim were pulled into the ground. Lilith vowed that this was far from over. The fissure closed after they were gone.

(Ghost Rider III#44) - Pilgrim teleported Lilith and her loyal children Fang, Meatmarket, Nakota and Outcast to the Cypress Hills Cemetery to battle the Midnight Sons and their allies. Zarathos joined the fray and the heroes fled and were brought to safety at the Sanctum Sanctorum by Doctor Strange.

(Darkhold: Pages from the Book of Sins#15) - Doc helped Lilith find the hideout of some of their enemies at an abandoned laboratory. Pilgrim teleported Lilith, Doc, Nakota, Outcast and Zarathos down to the lab's cellar where they encountered Modred, Jinx and Drake. Nakota soon witnessed Morbius turn on his allies to join forces with Lilith.

(Morbius: The Living Vampire I#16) - When Martine Bancroft, controlled by the Lilin Parasite, shattered the mystic barrier from inside the Sanctum Sanctorum, the Lilin alongside their mother and Zarathos invaded Doctor Strange's home. Nakota was standing next to Lilith during the attack on the Sanctum Sanctorum.

(Marvel Comics Presents I#144/1) - During the battle at the Sanctum Sanctorum Ghost Rider hit Nakota with his chain.

(Ghost Rider/Blaze: Spirits of Vengeance#17) - Nakota and the other Lilin continued their attack on the Midnight Sons after Doctor Strange had destroyed the Sanctum Sanctorum, but they escaped through a mystic door opened by Caretaker.

   Back in Cypress Hills Cemetery Nakota was alone with Pilgrim, who was hitting on her, but Nakota had no interest to hook up with him. Ghost Rider and Johnny Blaze attacked them and Nakota was knocked out by Blaze. Nakota was later pulled back to the Shadowside Realm after Ghost Rider, Blaze and Vengeance had joined forces to close the rift to the Shadowside.

(Marvel Comics Presents I#146/2) - On the Shadowside Nakota hung out at the Shadowside Saloon and welcomed Devil-Slayer when he arrived there, complimenting his outfit. She witnessed a fight erupt between Meatmarket and Devil-Slayer.
