Early life Edit
Nina is Meg's sister. Like Meg, Nina also hails from Naboo. She was born just after Meg left for the military, so Meg didn't know she had a sister. Nina's fur is white in color. Something rare among the amarans in her village. Also, she has impressive sensitivity to the Force. When Nina was a child, a Jedi visited her village, drawn by the force being felt from there. This Jedi performed a blood test on Nina, identifying a great amount of midichlorians. More than enough to join, and do well as a Jedi. The man insisted on taking Nina with him for Jedi training, but Nina's parents refused, seeing it more like a bad omen. Since that day, mos of the villagers looked Nina as something strange and they feared the possibility that Nina's staying in there would bring dire calamity. Her parents though, protected her from the rest, and taught her not only farming, but also alchemy to prepare healing potions from her early age. Nina being a quick learner, made her first working treeman's herb potion at age 6, learning all of her mother's and grandmother's recipe books at age 8.
Time of change Edit
At age 16, Nina's father fell ill, and eventually died of a rare disease that no healing technique could help with. her wife, Nina's mother, also fell ill after losing her love and died a week later. Her immediate family gone, Nina stayed alone, living her life in the village until she had a strange dream one night. Her sister, the one her parents always spoke of, appeared to be fading away and dying. The news were confirmed a few days later when a military officer went to the village to relay the news. Meg wasn't in the military anymore, but the respect she gained there won her many friends, even among officers. Telling the family about her death seemed like the least they could do. They also told Nina, that Meg's last location was with the force user group called Potentium, in the planet Zonama Sekot. With this info, Nina made a decision. She would make a transmission to all available channels, calling out this Potentium order. She wanted to talk to them and see Meg's remains. For this, she sold all her family values to other villagers, knowing that she wouldn't go back anyway, and set for the Naboo civilization. She spent some of her credits in contacting local transmission networks in order to send this message to as many places as possible. Weeks passed, and a ship coming from a rare hyperspace route landed on Theed, carrying a representative of the Potentium order. This person, a Zeltron going by the name Susalia, told Nina that they were the group where Meg lived her last days. With this, Nina boarded the ship and traveled to Zonama Sekot.
Life as a Potentium Edit
Upon arriving at Zonama Sekot, Meg was welcomed by the Potentium order and taken into their ranks because of her sensitivity with the force. The dashta eel in Meg's body was given to her and almost immediately, the two formed a bond. Later, a mini droid was made for the dashta eel to accompany Nina. Soon enough, Nina was apprenticed to Lady Leysha, a healer and her sister's best friend. As Nina's training started, her healing powers, resolve, and self risk to save others was put at test almost as soon as she started learning how to heal usng the force, when master Gram, one of the Potentium's longest time members, was badly wounded by a darksider. She also helped the healing of another master, master Ford. But one of Nina's most amazing moments was when trying to save the life of a still unborn child of a Jedi female who was murdered minutes before. In this event, Nina used every ounce of what she knew, and the raw power she could feel, and alongside her master, she saved the child from certain death. The forces were so strong that a small earthquake shook the foundations of the medical building. Cracks still in the walls of the facility are testimony of such an event. Some time before these events, Nina also met master Han, who would be Meg's protector and had special feelings for each other. Han had to double on his self control, as Nina is basically the burning image of Meg, just a lot younger and in bright white fur. Also, and in order to better use Nina's alchemist abilities, a green house was made in the area where Nina takes care of plants from other planets and creates all kinds of healing and helping potions and balms. She made her lightsaber using special instructions from master Han. The lightsaber can show multiple colors without any user input. Nina, just like Meg, made friends with almost every Potentium and ally, and is aiming at doing good in the galaxy through the ways of Potentium.
As a knight Edit
Soon enough, Nina was knighted for her efforts and for passing the trials. Her raw powers became much more controlled, and she also became quite skilled as a saberist. She demonstrated this skill time and time again in trainings and when defending the planet as well. She also started mentoring an apprentice named Solna, who she befriended and formed a bond with. A while after, Solna was knighted and Nina concentrated on healing and on training even more. One of the key moments of her knighthood, was when she killed a force sensitive spice smuggler by the name of Sarlo, who had given countless problems and put the Potentium in peril time and time again. She also spent time treating Master Han, since he had a heart disease. Another key point was that one night, her fur suddenly changed to the more common orange color of amarans. Knowing that threats like Sarlo and sith will eventually come again, Nina undertook an extremely rigorous training, to hone the full potential of her capabilities. She also took on another apprentice named Shalk. She eventually had Shalk also pass as a knight, in which she continued to train for all threats. The biggest not coming from any of the people she thought it would come from.
Chaos, Maturity and MasteryEdit
There was one event that marked Nina's life, and triggered further changes. At one time, master Han was abducted in a confusing set of events, by a group claiming to follow no known factions, but Chaos directly. Without any hesitation, Nina left Zonama Sekot to look for master Han across the galaxy, with help from friend Loke and assistance from other friends along the way. She met many perils, and faced death more than once, fighting people with skills that were completely different from any normal battle tactics. She was forced to adapt to fighting these chaotic beings, who seemed to only want to fill the galaxy with destruction and madness. She had to undergo, along the way, an operation in her legs. As a result, her lower legs looks closer to human legs now. This allowed her to fly some ships easier, and to perform saber moves like a human would. She also changed her looks a little, and added a pair of lightning like tatoos on her face, and a gem in her forehead, as proofs of battle and maturity. After many struggles, and fighting in planets near Wild space, Nina eventually rescued Han, in a showdown in nar Kreeta. but Han was extremely hurt and missing several limbs. She had to take care of him as he healed. Some time after that, Nina was tried and ranked Master of Potentium. Then she took on another apprentice. Carn.
As time passed, Han told about retiring the order and living a simpler life. He and the other council masters talked about making Nina a council master to take Han's place. But, Nina had other ideas. When the time for Han's retirement came, she also decided she would retire as well. After much debate from Han, he could only accept in the end, thus, both retired from the order, but not from the planet. They would live simpler lives now, not tied to any groups, but still helping those they could.
Personality and traits Edit
Nina, much like her sister, is always in a state of positivism. She is very polite, but sometimes tends to voice her opinions on some silly matters. Nina likes to show her fur. A trait she also shared with her late sister. Like Meg, this wasn't really with the means to seduce others, but just to proudly show how healthy she is and how shiny and soft the fur is.
Powers and skills Edit
Nina's default talents are varied. One of them is alchemy, concentrating in the herbal remedies field. She learned from her mother and grandmother, a series of herbal medicine skills that enable her to create a variety of remedies, medicines and balms. With enough force sensitivity to match many of the greatest force users of all time, Nina is already skilled in some force powers. Most of them related to healing. Nina can use force body, augmenting her already impressive raw force power with her own life force. Her force healing technique is comparable to any other healer's power. But through mere power, it can be extremely effetive. Nina also trained and learned the core force powers any Jedi would learn. Her saber and ranged weapon skills are worth of note as well, learning how to perform saber throw. She knows and practices Schi-Cho, Soresu, Ataru and Djem-Sho. After knighted, she has learned even more healing techniques, and brought to Zonama Sekot, an ancient amaran healing process, which uses a dust that when applied to a wounded person, seems to take a life of it's own. As for force powers, Nina learned force rejuvenate, which at the expense of her own power, can refresh a target almost in an instant. In the combat arts, she furthered her learning of Ataru, matching Master Han, her Ataru teacher, in skill. Now she also practices a devastating mix of moves based on the ancient styles that predate the use of lightsabers. Though the move sets are incomplete due to lack of learning material.
Behind the scenes Edit
The choice of color change from white to normal fox color was to try and comform more to normal amaran standards. The apprearance of the avatars, mostly eyes, were changed into slightly more fox like, changing eye shape and color from her previous blue, to the normal yellow that foxes have. In the last days before retirement, her eyes went back to the more toony looks from the start because of creator's preference. Also, the character size has been comfirmed as non canon. Sadly, creating an amaran avatar of the canon size seems like a daunting task and clothing and animating would be a problem as well. real amarans are sized from 3.5 to 4 feet tall, while the shortest avatar possible through normal means in SL is 4' 3".
