Twyla Valentin was the sister of Arelia Valentin and Macon, Hunting Ravenwood, and Leah's aunt. She was a powerful Necromancer and had never left New Orleans all her life until she came to Bonaventure Cemetery to perform a Circle of Sight, which called Ethan's mother. When Lena Duchannes chose both Light and Dark, one family member from each side was killed, Larkin Kent from the Dark, and Twyla from the Light. Twyla later guided Aunt Prue into the next life and joins the Greats in the Otherworld.
Twyla appears to be slightly older than Arelia, and described to have golden skin, which may suggest Creole heritage. Her hair is woven into braids and she wears many strands of different beads. She also has lots of piercings in her ears.
As a Necromancer, she is able to communicate with the dead and summon them to the world of the living. In Beautiful Darkness, she summoned the spirit of Ethan's mother when she performed the Circle of Sight.
