She is Luca's best friend and confidant before eventually deciding to leave her life as a prostitute behind to pursue a new life with Joachim.
Nina is a young woman with blue eyes and very curly blonde hair that reaches her shoulders.
Nina is a relatively selfish and cowardly person. While she means well, she is too afraid to stand up for others in fear of getting punished as well. On a few occasions, she lashes out at both Luca and Casca, but is quick to cry and apologize for it. Though she looks up to Luca, she comes to resent her, seeing her helpful and altruistic personality as a sign that Luca believes she is superior to others.
Unlike many of the cowards within the story, Nina's fear and self-preservation reflex are not portrayed as unsympathetic or evil. She hates herself and her own selfishness, and tends to regret throwing others in danger to save herself. At the end of the Conviction Arc, Nina comes to realize she was wrong about Luca, but decides to leave anyway, feeling that her character flaws will continue weighing her down unless she learns to be self-sufficient without her.
