An always happy, optimistic, mischievous, playful girl. Used to being alone, but happy to have some company. Nyx isn't good with words, so she usually just listens. She likes to help people.
Eager to meet new people and make new friends, though she doesn't really know how to, after living alone for many years prior. She's curious about everything and likes to learn new things. Because she had been left to survive on her own at a very young age, there's a lot she doesn't know about people, customs, interacting with people and stuff like that. Being a thief, she always had to avoid contact with people in the small town that she lived in (because she stole from them ahaha). Joining the Academy really helped her in this aspect, though!
She's not one to hide her emotions, though she might try to, if they make her appear weak (and maybe failing at it?). Though since she's pretty optimistic, she's usually happy.
Living almost her whole life (from leaving her home and tribe up till she left to join the Academy) in a small town, she's quite ignorant about the outside world, at her age. There are many things she doesn't know, and many things she wants to learn.
She's reckless and doesn't think of the consequences of her actions. Tends to put herself (and maybe others, but she tries not to...) in danger when she tries to pull some pranks. Though nothing's been serious enough to put her life in danger. (Yet....?)
After entering the Academy, she doesn't need to steal to survive, but she might still do it for fun...
She loves collecting cute things. Or just things that catch her eye.
Likes to sit in tall trees and enjoy the view. And maybe going down to the lowest branch and swinging down with her tail to scare people.
Born into a family of Summoners in a small Summoner tribe. The Elders of the tribe found that she had very low magic capacity and would not be able to summon creatures, which was uncommon to them. When she was a year old, they realised that she was growing a tail. Nyx was outcasted by adults and children alike for both her (non-existent?) magic abilities and the strange "mutation". Thus, the Elders and the community forced her into exile at the age of 4, despite protests from her family.
Shortly after, a roaming female thief came across a cold and hungry Nyx huddled up near a small town. The thief took Nyx in and taught her how to survive in the streets.After two years, the female thief decided Nyx couldn't just depend on her anymore and they went their separate ways.
After years of living in that small town by herself, Nyx heard about an Academy from some travelling merchants and decided to set off in search for it. (Only because it sounded like fun, really. Not because she was determined to improve her abilities or anything...)
Summoner Family: Unknown. She can't remember much about them, since she was so young. Doesn't even know how big her family is, or if she has siblings.
"Thief Mama": The female thief who took her in and looked after her until she could at least not get killed when she's on her own. Nyx is grateful to her and hopes that she could've stayed with her longer.
