|Featured In||The Reckoners|
Appearance and Personality
During the unexpected encounter in Diamond's weapon shop, David confirmed his suspect that Nightwielder's weakness is UV by pretending to have accidentally activated a UV camera. Uncertain this was deliberate or not, Nightwielder chose not to attack. Nightwielder was killed by David Charleston's exploitation of his weakness during the Reckoners' assassination of Steelheart. 
Attributes and Abilities
- He can pass through matter and no weapon can harm him while in this form. Nightwielder is almost never seen in corporeal form.
- Nightwielder is powerful enough to keep the entire city of Newcago dark except for the light from Calamity.
- Dark mist
- Nightwielder exudes a dark mist that pools around him. The mist can be controlled by him and be given solid form, for example, a spear that can impale someone.
- At a few points in Steelheart, Nightwielder displays the ability to levitate and fly. This ability appears to go in tandem with incorporeality. 
Nightwielder becomes corporeal whenever he has UV light shining on him. This doesn't effect the large-scale darkness.
