There're lots of capes who don't sleep.

–Tattletale, Venom 29.1

'Noctis' parahumans are those who, for whatever reason, don't need to sleep.[1]



Dragon claimed she didn't need to sleep as a side-effect of her powers,[5][3] but in reality it was because she was an artificial intelligence.

Miss Militia's shard stripped away her need to sleep because it was unusually restless.[6]



The term "Noctis" became associated with parahumans who don't sleep, after a vigilante of that name who operated at all hours.[1]

Story StartEdit

Dragon told Miss Militia that she didn't need to sleep since getting her powers. This was the first time Hannah had heard of another parahuman like her, and speculated that Dragon might also remember her trigger event. She asked Dragon "do you remember?", assuming that Dragon was smart enough to make the connection if she did, but Dragon was merely confused by the question.[3]


Taylor mistakenly speculated that Imp was "one of the capes that didn't need to sleep" because she never observed her resting over the course of three solid days.[7] In reality, Imp's power simply makes her impossible to perceive whenever she isn't concentrating.[8]


Around a year before Golden Morning, Tattletale researched Noctis capes as part of her investigation into irregularities in the dreams and memories of parahumans. She hired the Red Hand to steal PRT files on the phenomenon.[1]

  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 1.3 1.4 1.5 1.6 There're lots of capes who don't sleep. About a year ago, I started digging into the PRT files. Hired the Red Hands to steal a more up to date set, even. I was looking into clues for understanding this whole thing, y'know? Best leads at the time were memories and dreams. Clues popping up here and there, relating to people's dreams, or gaps in memories. Dreaming differently, seeing things instead of dreaming, case fifty-threes suffering from their amnesia… Well, there are a number of ‘Noctis' cases. Named after a vigilante hero that was up at all hours. The opposite of what I was looking for, but a good data point anyways: capes who don't dream because they don't sleep. PRT confirmed a few members of their own, Miss Militia included, as examples. Others have only been marked down as guesses. Doormaker and Contessa were among them, they said, going by the times the ‘bogeyman' was showing up. -Venom 29.1
