Mephista is a powerful demon and the daughter of the powerful hell lord Mephisto. Although possessing immense power she is relatively young and inexperienced. One of Mephista's first forays to Earth involved claiming the soul of the Earth sorcerer Baron Mordo. Sent by her father, Mephista would find that the hell lord Satannish also had claims to Baron Mordo's soul. She would have to breach the Earths Sorcerer Supreme, Doctor Strange's sphere of containment to find and claim to Mordo who was trapped inside it. Although she was able to easily dismiss Doctor Strange's attempts to stop her, she was unable to break into the containment sphere. Then she would find herself face to face with the powerful Satannish. The threat Satannish would present would be grave enough for Mephista to team up with Doctor Strange in order to stop him from acquiring the containment sphere. Yet the two would fail to stop Satannish who would depart taking the containment sphere with him, planning to break in back in his own native realm. During this time Mephista would develop a small crush on Doctor Strange. Mephista would have no choice but to report her failure to her father Mephisto who was considerably angered by this failing and loss. Mephisto, not one to appreciate losing, would prepare for battle and confrontation against his rival Satannish, venting frustration at Doctor Strange unaware of his daughters feelings towards the Sorcerer Supreme. As such Mephista was secretly relieved when her father would only imprison Strange in a sphere instead of destroy him. Mephista would accompany her father to confront Satannish.
Mephista is a Marvel comic book character created by Roy Thomas, Dann Thomas, Jackson Guice and Jose Marzan Jr. The character first appears in Doctor Strange, Sorcerer Supreme #6 released in 1989.

Mephista would find both easy to overcome and defeat, however Doctor Strange would appear and he would be more successful in his battle with Mephista this time around, trapping Mephisto's daughter into the Ruby of Cyttorak where she would fall into a deep slumber.
