DC Universe Online Wiki

Tala is a demoness and mistress of her own part of Hell, whose motives reflect such origins, as she is known for either trying to doom mortals' souls to ruin or aiming to unleash apocalyptic evils upon the world.

As the self proclaimed "Queen of Evil", Tala is a highly powerful and gifted sorceress, a constant opponent of the Phantom Stranger, whom she has tried to destroy and/or seduce also on various occasions.


Tala was unleashed upon Earth during a dark ritual in Haiti thanks to Dr. Thirteen's blunder while trying to "expose" her existence as a hoax. As soon as Tala was released on the world, she started wreaking havoc. Her actions led her to New York City, where she was momentarily stopped by the Phantom Stranger. Afterwards, she had other encounters with the Stranger, but she never came out victorious, unless she decided to indirectly assist Stranger on his quests.

Eventually, Tala revealed herself as the leader of the Dark Circle, a secret cult that sought to take over the world by evil means. As the Dark Circle's plans were constantly thwarted by the Phantom Stranger, Tala decided to unleash the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse on Earth to bring death and destruction. Her evil plan, however, was thwarted once again by the Phantom Stranger, assisted by Tannarak, who sacrificed to save the Phantom and caused Tala to fall to her apparent demise.
