A slim serval who stands a little over three feet tall, Nykus has a fairly short muzzle with a triangular nose, quite large, rounded ears that stand upright, and a medium-length tail.
Her fur is primarily ateneo blue in color, with a white muzzle, chest, and stomach, as well as black tearlines, black tips to her ears, and a collection of black spots and streaks covering her body. Her hair, which is cut short, is bistre in color, and her eyes are bittersweet in color.
Nykus and her sister Synkka were born into the Dark Clan, at around the same time; Nykus was born roughly ten minutes earlier than her sister, however, making her older.
As a priestess, Nykus' abilities are primarily utility-based, focusing around buffing her allies and wearing down her enemies with debuffs and the like. She has a strong connection to the Chaos Force, giving her access to fairly powerful energy-based attacks (but not as strong as the attacks of a battle mage). Her spirituality allows her to manipulate the environment around herself in subtle ways, and this allows her to not only buff the power of her chosen Element, but to also weaken the power of other Elements.
Being a serval, she has a keen sense of both sight and hearing, and she is also armed with sharp claws and teeth giving her some decent natural weapons that she can also infuse with the Element of Darkness.
Nykus is relatively resistant to the Element of Darkness. She is quite fast, and can easily outpace slower foes and evade their attacks.
Nykus is weak to the Element of Light. Her defenses aren't anything special, therefore she mostly relies on her agility to try and evade potentially devastating attacks. Her physical strength is also less than stellar, making her falter heavily in hand-to-hand combat.
