Maria was considered a national treasure by the Spanish people. She was a member of the National Opera Company, a true diva in her own right. She wasn’t even aware that she was an uber. It just seemed a little odd to the people who knew her that she was fearless in the dark. Especially one night when all the lights in the theater mysterious went out and everyone panicked except for Maria.

It was during the second act of Carmen that Maria first met Flecha de Or. She was just about to sing an aria when a strangely dressed man with long fingers came rushing out on to the stage disrupting everything. It was Motte, and he wasn’t happy.  The British villain started throwing people around looking for someone. That someone was Flecha de Or.

An arrow flew out of the catwalks above the stage striking next to Motte’s foot. This seemed to enrage the villain, whose fingers stretched out and grabbed Maria around the throat.

“Okay you bloody wanker,” hissed Motte, “I’ve got this lovely neck in me hands, and there ain’t nothin’ ya can do about it.”

That was when the lights went out. Maria felt funny, she had never actively used her powers before, and in a way it was exciting. Motte tried tightening his fingers around Maria’s neck, but she was no longer there. Somehow she had freed herself from his grasp. This was something few people had ever been able to do; escaping from Motte’s crushing grip.

Motte let out another curse as an arrow from Flecha de Or struck him in the chest knocking him down. While the arrow didn’t hurt (nothing hurt Motte), Motte felt weak all over. However, Motte wasn’t going to let that insult go unpunished. Standing up he let out a roar of anger only to have it turn in to scream as a burst of the energy slammed into him throwing him from the stage into the orchestra pit. There Motte struggled with the instruments and decided that discretion was the better part of valor and made his escape. As for Flecha de Or, he couldn’t have noticed. All he had were eyes for Maria.

After that night the two started dating, and fighting crime together. Flecha de Or helped Maria design a costume and she took the code name: Pajaro de la Noche or Nightbird. For awhile the duo broke up when Flecha de Or became involved with the Brotherhood, but he eventually returned to Spain and to Maria.

Flecha de Or proposed to her, and they were married in a big ceremony in Madrid. Attending the wedding were the members of the Brotherhood, Knightwatch, U-Force, Trinity and other European heroes. Sting acted at the maiden of honor, while Armstrong was the best man. The only bad spot during the wedding was when TITAN and the Empire tried to interrupt. However, with all the Ubers around the villains were beaten off.

Maria has known about her abilities but has never taken them seriously. Her career as a singer has always been more important to her. However, since she has met Flecha de Or that attitude has changed. No longer will she stand aside while bad people torment the innocent. Maria has gone so far as to create an alternate identity for herself as a private detective.

Maria is deeply in love with Flecha de Or. For her he brings excitement into her otherwise routine life. There is little that she wouldn’t do for her husband, even sacrificing her life. Recently, she has thought about having children, but is having too much fun fighting crime alongside her husband to commit to raising a family.
“The night hides many things. Better watch your step.”

Pajaro de la Noche is an uber who is able to project darkness around her. Normally only she can see through her darkness. She can manipulate the darkness to form a variety of attacks, which take the shape of feathers or wings. Her darkness feathers are able to pierce the strongest of armor, while using her darkness talon Pajaro de la Noche encloses her foes into an impenetrable field of darkness.

Defensively she can cause the darkness to deflect attacks away from herself. Through unknown means she can even fly. Her most unusual ability is to merge with the darkness becoming completely intangible.

Pajaro de la Noche is an extremely attractive woman with sultry brown eyes, and the blackest hair that almost looks blue. She’s a dusky skinned woman, and for a costume she wears a long blue hooded cloak. She keeps the hood up to cast shadows over her face, even though she could use her abilities to hide her identity. Underneath her cloak, she wears a white leotard, with black fishnet nylons, and boots that match her cloak. When not in her Pajaro de la Noche guise Maria like to dress in fashionable skirts and tops.
