~ Twilight Lady's message on the photo she left for Nite Owl.

Twilight Lady (real name Elizabeth "Liz" Lane) is a fictional character and villain who is mentioned in Watchmen, appears as a the main antagonist in the second part of the 2009 video game Watchmen: The End is Nigh, and also appears as a supporting character in Before Watchmen: Nite Owl.

In the 2009 video game, she was voiced by Courtenay Taylor, who also voiced Turbo K.O. and Metal K-0 in OK K.O.! Let's be Heroes, Starla Gutsmandottir in Regular Show, Ada Wong in Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, and Jack in the Mass Effect series.


She is a BDSM–themed criminal and "Vice–Queen" who ran illegal sex–based industries and kidnapped people as sex slaves during the 1960s, and ran afoul of the vigilantes Nite Owl and Rorschach. Nite Owl had a Catwoman–esque relationship many years ago, and she actually sent him a signed picture of herself at one point which he still has (this is how she is brought up in the original comic).

Before Watchmen: Nite Owl

Twilight Lady appears as a supporting character in Before Watchmen: Nite Owl, which acts as a prequel to the Watchmen comics. In the four issue comics, the Twilight Lady and Nite Owl begin a romantic relationship, dating in and out of their costumes. Rorschach learned of this, and wanted to end their relationship since she was a criminal. The Twilight Lady later helped the two vigilantes stop a senator who was kidnapping working girls, and Rorschach saved her from the senator. After the incident, the Twilight Lady ended her relationship with Nite Owl, as she wanted him to find someone better.

Watchmen: The End is Nigh

In the game, which takes place in 1977 after Rorschach has officially gone insane, Twilight Lady is seen in a porn film dominating a known missing girl, and Nite Owl and Rorschach go to her hideout to investigate, where it is eventually discovered that the missing girl willingly ran away to be a sex slave.

When Twilight Lady is fought and defeated, she is left lying on the cracked glass roof of her building at a deadly height, and Rorschach insists on killing her, due to his general brutality and particular hatred of abusers of youth, due to his traumatic previous encounters with them. This leads to a physical fight between him and Nite Owl, where the winner is whichever one you are playing as. If Rorschach wins, he shoots Twilight Lady and she falls to her death, which makes Nite Owl very upset, while if Nite Owl wins Rorschach falls but survives, and when Twilight Lady tries to flirt with Dan, but he lashes out at her and tells her to leave the city or he will kill her himself.



  • Her relationship with Nite Owl mostly mirrors Batman's relationship with Catwoman.
