Nia possesses a radiant and cheerful demeanor. She is often found with a smile on her face and a twinkle in her eyes. Pure and clear in disposition, she does harbor a hint of mischief, albeit in the smallest sense explored in ways such as harmless pranks or jokes.
Despite being carefree, she is responsible enough to know restraint. Chores and errands are to be done accordingly. Playtime comes after tasks are completed so she enjoys her free time to the fullest. Not that she skips off into the woods immediately after. Nia actually enjoys domestic and home economics so she likes using her spare time to cook, clean, and sew.
That said, Nia does possess a very awkward and questionable nature. She's obsessed with dogs and, even as a child, harassed the dog hybrids who strayed within her sight. Because of this, she has developed quite a stalkerish behavior when dealing with such persons. Beware, man's best friend.
Nia was born the second daughter to a human father and elven mother. Her family owned a small boutique in the city and, despite suffering some hardships due to their interspecies union, they were a happy and content bunch. Growing up, she knew her family circumstance was uncommon, but it never bothered her. She still made friends and was able to develop connections with many of their neighbors. In fact, her childhood experience allowed her to become the tough girl she is now.
It was in her teen years did Nia notice her sister was different. Their parents spent an inordinate amount of time teaching and telling Velia things they did not her. She soon learned why and, on that day, matured a little. Nia, who regularly went out to play, began staying home more often to help around the house and boutique. The change in scenario was seamless and she fell into a more domestic life with relative ease.
Everything became routine. Wake up, make breakfast, school and club, chase dogs and the occasional hybrid she'll find, go home, make dinner, homework and study, sleep, rinse and repeat. So it was no surprise that she was taken aback when Velia informed the family of plans to move to an unknown town in some unknown crop of land somewhere in the boonies. Worried about the older sister's well-being, the parents would let her go under one condition: the sisters go together. Nia, of course, agreed. A city girl at heart, she went with low expectations for this 'Coffee Town'. Nevertheless, if the decision was between modern comfort or Velia, she would pick Velia ten times over.
