Charles Knight was born in Gotham and served as the custodian of Gotham Cathedral Church even after it was abandoned. Shortly after she was born, in 1992 or 1993, he adopted Natalia, an unfortunate orphan born with a unique type of porphyria, which made her unable to be exposed to sunlight and created difficulties to her kidneys in cleaning her blood.
Loving the child deeply, Charles secretly provided her supplies of fresh blood for years.
In December 2019, Charles suffered an heart attack and died leaving Natalia alone.
