Carlotta is a werewolf, who appears in the Discworld computer game Discworld Noir as romantic foil and provider of useful information. Carlotta entered into the family of the von Überwalds by marrying the late Ulrich von Überwald, son of the Count Henning von Überwald. She lives in the von Überwald Mansion in Ankh-Morpork.

Carlotta appears at the beginning of the game, bringing Lewton the case of finding a man named Mundy, who was supposedly her ex-lover. In the middle of some cases, she turns Lewton into a werewolf by making a little bite when she kisses him.

Near the end of the game, it is revealed that she is Therma, who was adopted by trolls, that Malachite was her step-brother, and that she is a follower of Anu-anu who was helping the god Anu-anu make all the murders called "The Counterweight Killings" to summon Nylonathatep. Carlotta is the one who started the cult, after her late husband got her into it.

Carlotta reveals to Lewton that she and Malachite once broke into the von Überwald Mansion to steal valuables, and her brother got caught. But a painting of the Duchess Charlotte von Überwald she saw on the mansion got her thinking, and she re-invented herself as Carlotta, and married Ulrich.

When she and the followers summon Nylonathatep in an underground altar under The Dysk Theatre, something unexpected makes them lose control and Anu-anu is wounded. Carlotta stays with him treating his wounds and takes him somewhere else. After Lewton gets the means for destroying Nylonathatep, she tells Lewton to go away to a very far place with her, but the inspector instead turns her in to The Watch and she gets imprisoned.
