Topaz's origins are unknown to her and others. In her youth she was found and raised by the sorcerer Taboo
, who was at the time held in a Indian prison camp.
Topaz was created by Marv Wolfman
and Mike Ploog
and first appeared in Werewolf by Night #13
Mayor Story Arcs
Werewolf by Night
Later in Topaz's life, Taboo compelled her to control the Werewolf ( Jack Russell
) for his use. Topaz's refusal to kill Jack ended up causing Taboo to disown her. Topaz and Jack ended up becoming lovers and Topaz also helped Jack to control his powers, learn about his family, and even fought alongside him against Dracula
. Later on, Topaz was abused by Dr .Glitternight
who took a portion of her soul. Figuring out what Glitternight did to her Topaz defeated him. Maria Russoff
, Jacks grandmother used Topaz’ power to raise zombies
from the grave which was part of a deranged plan. Topaz regained a clear mind, and Maria took her life once she realized what she was doing to her grandson. Later on, Topaz destroyed the demon Mephisto
, sadly his minions took her and trapped her in a dimension with a spell that would take a portion of her soul and take her powers if she ever left that dominion.
However, Mephisto was found to be alive and was destroyed by Franklin Richards
of the Fantastic Four
. Topaz also helped Jack's sister in curing her of the family curse to become a werewolf
. Topaz was freed from Mephisto and her soul was given back by Dr. Strange. When Topaz reached 21 her powers was at their peak. Topaz wanted to lay low for awhile so she started to run a bar called The Voodoo Lounge. When Dormammu heard of her escape he sent his minions to capture her. Dr. Strange came and helped rescue her.
Later on Topaz is seen being Dr. Strange servant/ apprentice. She is told that a great evil is here and she has to join forces with two other witches. We learn that they are Jennifer Kale
, during this time they battle a demon and get a powerful book. Dr. Strange said the book belongs in his hands but Topaz backs Jennifer up and says no. Dr. Strange then dismisses Topaz and tells her to go away.
Even though she hasn't appeared in comic during some time, she mentioned by Jennifer Kale, in Marvel Zombies. Recently due to Doctor Strange abuse in magicks by using dark arcane forces, he lost his title as Sorcerer Supreme. Topaz was shown as one of the many candidate to be his replacements, though the successor was shown to be Doctor Voodoo.
