|“||What a nuisance. I might have known the Hoshidan army would be here. "There's a young girl in there! We've got to take her into custody!" Blah blah blah. Children barely out of the womb to capture a grown woman. Pathetic. It makes me sick. This is why I usually choose to remain hidden from the ignorant masses. *sigh*||”|
Nyx (Japanese: ニュクス Nyx) is a character in Fire Emblem Fates. A Dark Mage from Nohr born to a family of talented mages, Nyx is playable in two of Fates's campaigns, Conquest and Revelation. Her primary profession is that of a fortune teller.
Nyx is first seen where she is wandering around Fort Dragonfall. Unfortunately, a group of Hoshidans, who had captured Azura, were in the fort. When they approached Nyx, they thought she was a young girl and tried to take her into protective custody, but she managed to escape them.
The Nohrian Army had also arrived in Fort Dragonfall in order to pass through to the port town of Dia, though they had to fight the Hoshidans stationed there. Corrin finds Nyx and wonders what she is doing out all alone, and also mistakes her as a young girl. While Nyx initially refuses Corrin's attempts to have her join the army, she eventually decides to join since as she expressed a desire of companionship which she had not had for a while. After joining the Nohrian army, she informs Corrin about a breakable wall near her which could be used to ambush the Hoshidans and allow the Nohrians to win. Nyx later helps settle the age old conflict between Hoshido and Nohr.
Nyx appears where she stumbles into the Sevenfold Sanctuary in an attempt to hide from the masses. Corrin finds her and asks her if she needs help, which she refuses. Nyx decides to join the army, after noticing Corrin's determination at such a young age and believing that they may be able to understand her.
