Nightwing was the mate of Red Fern, born in prehistoric times and mother of his son, Redwing. It is unknown, but possible that Nightwing was a lamia vampire. If so, she would've been one the first lamia born after Red Fern, who was the first lamia. It is unknown who her parents were or how they came to be lamia - they could not have been made vampires, as they are infertile. If Nightwing was not lamia, then she could've been a witch, a shapeshifter or even possibly a human, as lamia have been shown to be able to breed with other species. Nightwing's descendents eventually became known as the Redfern family.
- Regardless of her species, Nightwing's name could be considered a lamia one; 'night' refers to the darkest time of day - which would be an appropriate name for any Night Person - whilst 'wing' is the appendage of a flying animal such as a bird.
- Nightwing's son, Redwing, was possibly named after both her and his father Red Fern.
- Nightwing happens to be another alter ego of the DC character Dick Grayson, also known as Robin, the sidekick of Batman. Ironically, Batman is referenced by the vampire hunter Rashel Jordan (also known as 'the Cat'), when she compares herself and her relationship with vampires to to the relationship between Batman and Catwoman.
- Given that Red Fern is stated as being the progenitor all most, if not all, lamia, then it stands to reason that Nightwing was not lamia but a different species of Night Person.
