Naimi-Selari-Nykantia, or commonly known as Nyx, is a Skywing Elf.


Nyx is a slim elf with broad hips and a purple-blue hued skin tone. Her facial features are unique, as she has bi-colored eyes, golden on the right and cyan on the left, as well as dark purple lips. Her nose, forehead, and cheek area are marked by a lighter colored symbol, unlike the rest of her body. While her feathered wings, which are located on her lower back, appear in a wine red tone, her hair transitions from a white to a light blue hue, over a cyan color into a dark blue. Her hairstyle consists of thick side bangs which are each brushed to a different side, long strands in front, and a messy backside. A set of two different horns is placed on the top and side of her head, the upper ones being small and brown and the lower ones being bent and white. She is seen dressed in a white & light blue shirt, thin dark brown jacket with white sleeves, woven leather bracers, gray pants with light blue features, and tall, gray greaves.


Nyx is clever and decisive, and she will do anything to get what she wants. Eager to use questionable methods, her sense of following morals seems over-toned by a certain amount of greed. She's quirky, cheerful, and generally carefree. She is skilled at deception, capable of deceiving even the wary Rayla.

Nyx's wings are a rare gift among Skywing Elves — a gift she uses to embrace a life of freedom, adventure, and… well, crimes. Crafty and silver-tongued, she is always on the lookout for a chance at treasure or coin… and what could be a better prize than the Dragon Prince himself?
