"Nancy Turpin" was an alias Seraph created so she could get closer to Cloud, while disguised as a US army "specialist", without the New Defenders knowing. Her real name is unknown and probably Russian. Seraph's powers are the telepathic ability to induce ecstasy, limited mind reading and enhanced strength. She's albino, very skilled in disguise and a Soviet double-agent who calls Leningrad home.

If the first Seraph listed in the Project was around during WW II in the Uncanny X-Men & Wolverine issues flashbacks, would that make this Seraph "II" and Reggie Bitters- Seraph "III" or would this be the 1st Seraph, the W.W. II flashback Seraph "II", and Reggie Bitters- Seraph "III" because this one appeared first in publication order?

According to: http://marvel.wikia.com/Sonya_Tolsky_(Earth-616)

Seraph's real name is Sonya Tolsky and she also used the alias of "Katarina Ivanova".

Marvel.wikia.com, despite its official-sounding name, is a fan wiki. And wiki sites have a habit of being unreliable at best.

I'd prefer to see that name sourced from an actual printed Marvel comic before we add it to the MCP.

Speaking of Harridan... she doesn't have a listing here either. http://marvel.wikia.com/Harridan_(Earth-616)

Harridan/Porfiry, Svetlana
