Bertok-Raaf was a demonic serial killer who had been responsible for many murders over the centuries.

Bertok-Raaf was a demon born to a sibling of the demon lord Trigon, and over the centuries took possession of many people to commit serial killings. These included Lizzie Borden, as well as those who came to be known as Jack the Ripper, the Bone Collector and the Phantom Killer among many others. In the 21st Century, she possessed a woman named Beth and took over an abandoned church which she renamed the "Church of Blood", hanging paintings of her infamous past possessions inside it.[1]

After disappearance of eight people in the area around the Church of Blood, Wonder Woman came to investigate and Bertok-Raaf baited her into a trap by screaming, so she could possess her powerful Amazonian body. Wonder Woman went inside the Church or Blood, where she had heard the scream coming from, and found a dead corpse. As she confronted the possessed Beth, she questioned who she was and was soon given the true answer by the demon. Raven, the daughter of Trigon, soon intervened in their fight, subduing the demon with her Soul-Self, before Wonder Woman tied Beth up with her Lasso of Truth.[1]

Raven told Wonder Woman that they needed to transfer her into a weaker body, but she rejected it stating she would not force anyone into absorbing the demon. As she told Bertok-Raaf to take her, Raven protested saying she was too powerful. Wonder Woman however still invited the demon in, soon becoming possessed and attacking Raven. As they fought, Raven told her that she could overcome the demon and used the Lasso of Truth to question whether she or Bertok-Raaf, the truth or the lie, was stronger. As she answered the truth, it allowed her to overpower and subdue the demon.[1]
