Celia Penderghast is a Conduit that has the power to manipulate and control paper.
Following the death of her parents during the events in New Marais, a young Celia encountered Brooke Augustine, another Conduit and member of the military. However, upon reaching Augustine's battalion, Celia found herself imprisoned by her friend, who, in doing so, avoided being persecuted by the military and secured the government's trust.
Locked up in Curdun Cay, Celia spent seven years within its walls; despite her imprisonment by Augustine, she came to see the head of the Department of Unified Protection as a parental figure and became her most trusted agent.

- Paper Manipulation: Celia's powers over paper was surprisingly versatile; she could control every form of paper, as well as create pulp and stock out of trace elements. Through special folding techniques, which would normally require hundreds of pounds of mechanical force, she could make deceptively durable paper armor, as well as projectile weapons. Celia was also able to convert her body to adopt the qualities of paper, allowing her to use wind currents to move around, albeit erratically so. She also seemed capable of a type of teleportation, which consisted of suddenly transforming her body into numerous scraps and pieces of paper that quickly dispersed, making her difficult to catch.
