Katerina Ticacek Nox, nicknamed Mystik, is Caustic's biological mother and Crypto's adoptive mother.

Lore[ | ]

Background[ | ]

Katerina Ticacek Nox was born in 2663 on Gaea. At some point, she married Arthur Rutherford Nox, and on February 25, 2685 she gave birth to her son, Alexander. Growing up, Nox spoiled her son, and she claims to have ignored the warning signs of his future dangerous behavior.[1]

In 2723, a fire at Humbert Labs allegedly caused the death of Alexander. Arthur later died from the resulting heartbreak. A distraught Nox would often sit on a bridge in Suotamo, searching for a sign to keep going. She received this sign when a young orphan boy came out from under the bridge and yelled at her that he was trying to sleep. She then adopted this boy, Tae Joon Park. Eventually, she additionally opened an orphanage in Suotamo.[1]

Season 3[ | ]

After Park was framed as the murderer of his foster sister, he entered the Apex Games under a false identity. During this time, he maintained contact with Nox.[2] She was additionally interviewed regarding his whereabouts.[3]

The Legacy Antigen[ | ]

In 2734, Nox arrived on Olympus for the unveiling of Pathfinder's statue. Around the same time, the Medusa outbreak was unleashed on the floating city. Nox was one of the patients afflicted with the disease.[4]

While in the hospital, she was visited by Natalie Paquette, who wished to meet the mother of her friends Caustic and Crypto. The two discussed family and the childhoods of Alexander and Tae Joon. However, Nox soon entered cardiac arrest due to failing equipment, but she was saved due to quick action by Paquette.[1]

After the cure for the outbreak was developed, Nox was set to be transferred to a hosptial on Gaea. A doctor approached Alexander and Tae Joon and stated that immediate family was allowed to visit her. While neither men were willing to unveil their true identities, Tae Joon allowed Alexander to visit their mother, enabling a long overdue reunion between the two.[5]

Season 21[ | ]

In the second story, you find Mystik sitting in a chair as the power goes out.
When both Tae Joon enters her home and tells her he's come to take her out of the city as the riots are getting worse. As he tells her this, her home fills up with gas, which causes him to blame Alexander as he walks in.
Crypto tells him he was supposed to guard her evac ship instead of filling the place with gas, to which he replies that there was an explosion at Humbert Labs. Caustic offers his mother a gasmask, when she tells him she already has one and to give that mask to Tae Joon.

  • She is a fan of Mirage.
