Character Details

- Topaz doesn't have a lot of knowledge of her early life. Her earliest memory is being found as a child in a prison camp in India by a sorcerer who called himself Taboo. She was only an adolescent at the time. Her innocent use of magic to create flowers, move things with her mind and make things disappear freaked out the locals and made them denounce the child as a witch. Taboo, seeing great potential in her, protected her, and gave her the name Topaz.

- Topaz' magical training continued with Taboo through her teenage years until Taboo brought her to the states. By this time she had discovered not only her abilities of telekinesis but of empathy as well, and the fact that she was a natural familiar -- able to magnify the powers of other magicians if they focused through her. She became proficient over time with daily training in all the aspects of her powers.

- Taboo brought Topaz to New York, seeking to use her empathic abilities to control Jack Russell, the Werewolf by Night, because Taboo thought him in possession of a great book of magic called the Darkhold. Topaz stood up to her teacher and parental figure for the first time when Taboo commanded her to kill Jack, with whom she had fallen in love. She stayed with Russell and used her empathy to help him keep his werewolf transformations and powers under control. They adventured together in the meantime, fighting enemies such as Dracula.

- Topaz' abilities became known to some shady people in the magic and supernatural world, perhaps thanks to a vengeful Taboo. Dr. Glitternight magically stole a portion of her soul. Jack's grandmother used her in a ritual to raise zombies -- which temporarily drove her insane. Topaz survived these travails, fought to regain her sanity, and was once more able to help Jack when his sister, Lissa, developed the family werewolf curse, even while weakened from having part of her soul missing. She eventually discovered what Glitternight had done, and took him on -- winning her soul back.

- Topaz ended up immersed in the magical and supernatural world, having to face off against such foes as Mephisto, but at a great cost. The whole reason she'd come to Mephisto's attention in the first place was that she had been foretold as being powerful enough to destroy Mephisto upon reaching peak of power at her 21st birthday. She lay trapped as her 21st birthday passed, until Franklin Richards released her as a side effect of acting in his own self-defense against Mephisto. She was released, but still encased in rock. Stephen Strange encountered her in this form, and sensing that she was human, released her. She was grateful, of course, but still missing a piece of her soul -- this time, the piece that allowed her the control of her powers. So her sanity, her emotions and her empathic abilities soon spiralled out of control. An alien sorceress called Urthona acquired the fragment of Topaz's soul. She offered the suffering woman the soul fragment back in exchange for Topaz assisting her against Strange. Desperate to regain her sanity and control, Topaz felt she had no option but to agree to the deal to betray her new friend and mentor. She helped Urthona transport the Sanctum Sanctorum to Urthona's own planet, at which point Urthona revealed her true colors and captured both Topaz and Wong. Strange pursued but was injured and ended up astrally projecting into the body of Rintrah. The battle between Strange and Urthona released the soul fragment, restoring Topaz' control over her mind, emotions, and abilities. She returned to earth with her friends. She recovered under the care of the Sisters of Glastonbury Tor, and with their assistance, achieved greater control over her abilities.

- She returned to New York and ended up with a demon taking up residence in her soul. With Rintrah and Strange's help, they sought out an exorcism, which drew them into seeking out the Ghost Rider. They were unable to harvest the demonic flame from the Rider because of the pain it caused him. But they helped him fight Zodiak, which allowed Strange to harvest the demonic fire from another source. They had to travel to California to get wolf fur from Jack Russell, and to Strange's brother, Baron Blood, to get a talon of a vampire in its bat form. The exorcism, finally taking place, banished the demon, revealing it had never been an ancient demon, but the daughter of Mephisto, Mephista. Strange, Rintrah, and Morgana Blessing with Topaz' help were successful in defeating the daughter of Mephisto.

- Returning to Earth, Topaz served Dr. Strange as a student until he began to dabble in black magic -- at which point Topaz severed their relationship with regret. Still loyal to him, she did return to assist him in a fight against Dormammu.

- After that battle, Topaz decided to live a quiet, magic-free life for a while. She began running a bar in Greenwich Village called the Voodoo Lounge, and things were simple for a while. But Dormammu, seeking revenge for her part in defeating him, sent agents to capture and enslave her. And again, Doctor Strange came to her rescue, since it was only assisting him that had her on Dormammu's list in the first place.
