Natalya is a member of the Dragonseeker clan. She has been on the run from Xavier and hunted by the vampires for many years. When her lifemate, Vikirnoff, bound them together, she believed he had used a spell and attempted to find a spell to reverse his claim. No matter how often he tried to tell her it wasn't a spell, she refused to believe until she realized that she couldn't live without him, giving up on reversing the binding ritual. When she found out that her beloved twin, Razvan, had sided with Xavier, the betrayal she felt shattered everything she believe.
Vikirnoff had previously seen her in a dream, but when Nicolae gave him her photo in Dark Destiny, Vikirnoff knew her eyes were a vivid blue like the sea. A vampire from the Morrison Center was looking for her and asked for MaryAnn's help should Natalya come for aid. The task of searching for and protecting the then unknown woman is what let Vikirnoff survive to find his lifemate.
