Pianura is reasonably tall and broad, for a female hedgehog. She shows rather high levels of muscle definition, and as such is rather slim. She has reasonably long and unique quills, with long silver hair that she puts into a ponytail. By contrast, her brown fur is normally kept pretty short. She has deep black eyes that don't seem to reflect any light, and almost appear soulless.
Always the warrior, like many in the Nihlic Clan, Pianura wears a maroon combat vest, pleated belt section and cape, as well as white baggy pants, with tempered steel armor over her chest and back and a couple of black leather belts, one from her shoulder to her waist, and the other around her waist. She also wears black leather fingerless gloves with metal backs, black leather bracers along her arms, and shin-high black leather boots.
Pianura is believed to be descended from exiled members of the Dark Clan of Voidstar, who fled into the Mists like many others and ended up under Nihlus. As such, her parents and friends raised her with a life of hatred, aimed towards the "pious mongrels" of the Elemental Clans, with the group regularly training for combat, no matter their place in life. Even the healers, who refused to kill, were taught how to strip people of their powers. Pianura learned ALL of the styles - the silent combat of the assassins, the high-speed skills of the scouts, the slow but powerful styles of the soldiers and knights, the strategic styles of the tacticians, the ranged skill of the battle mages and priests, the summoning commands of the summoners, AND the non-fatal styles of the medics, not to mention the ability to manipulate the mist itself. The reason behind the mixture was explained by the Leader of the Clan at the time - as well as being gifted in combat, she was to be the next leader, by Nihlus' decree. This lead to her casting away her broadsword and position as a basic soldier, to take up the Blade of the Ancient Ones, a legendary Greatsword relic from the Demon-Celestial War, and the mantle of command, at her twentieth birthday. Suddenly in "her rightful place", Pianura entered close communication with Nihlus himself, and came up with a plan. Nihlus, older than any of his "siblings" and unknown to them, baited a trap with people from his "other acolytes", and took the Elemental Gods prisoner within the Transitory Mists, a place known as the Nihlic Ridge, somewhere where the Gods could never escape, and never be sensed by their followers. Pianura prepared her people for war, knowing that Nihlus would treat her people to a bloodbath when the time arose for the trap to be sprung.
Pianura is no pushover. She knows all the fighting styles from the entire clan, and as such fights with fervor and unpredictable grace with her greatsword and even her bare hands. She is a talented orator, capable of rallying her entire clan within seconds, and even making them feel just about any emotion imaginable. With her Nihlikinetic abilities, she uses a large number of the "Eraser" techniques, and most of her techniques are designed to kill or disable by "erasing" things from time and space, or in other words warping them to the Realm of the Erased, the void where things removed with Nihlikinetic powers would end up. However, using her Nihlikinetic powers takes time to charge between uses.

Friends and Foes
- Nulla the Hedgecat - More than just her second-in-command, Nulla is Pianura's best friend. The two of them are as close as sisters, and that's often how they act.
Headstrong, arrogant and cocky, Pianura isn't what you'd expect from a leader of a clan, but the head of the militant Nihlic Clan is talented in commanding her people in combat, her main love in life. She also has a strange obsession with children's television shows, projected on the mist on occasion.
- Pianura and her second in command are best friends.
