Bernadeth wields her fahren-knife, which is capable of burning her enemies from the inside.
Co-leader of the Female Furies, Bernadeth wields a "fahren-knife" that burns her victims from the inside. As the sister of Darkseid's servant, Desaad, Bernadeth is both notorious and feared by the masses of Apokolips. She was one of the first Furies to be recruited, Bernadeth hated being led by others. When Big Barda left for Earth to be with Mister Miracle, Bernadeth saw this as a way to gain leadership herself. However, Darkseid rewarded Lashina with leadership of the Furies. During a mission to retrieve Glorious Godfrey, Bernadeth betrayed Lashina and left her on Earth. Because of this, Bernadeth was temporarily able to achieve leadership over the Furies. When Lashina returned to Apokolips with the Suicide Squad, she snapped Bernadeth's neck after a long and fierce battle. Darkseid was appalled by the fact that Lashina brought outsiders to Apokolips, so he killed her and resurrected Bernadeth.
After Lashina was brought back to life, Bernadeth agreed to share the leadership. Bernadeth often avoids physical battles, but if necessary, she can go all out and fight with the best. In the past, she has battled Superman, Sovereign Seven, Supergirl, and Young Justice, to name a few. Recently on Apokalips, she was seen along with the rest of the furies testing Granny Goodness' newest recruit Precious. After Supergirl's capture Bernadeth, along with the rest of her teammates were defeated by Wonder Woman and Big Barda.
Most recently, she appeared in both the Seven Soldiers: Mister Miracle mini-series, and in Hawkgirl.
Desaad is Bernadeth's brother.
