Nyx with her ability to foresee the future, she proves more than a match for Ryo Tetsuda when he wants a sparring partner. As a result of her being able to successfully spar with Ryo, Ryo develops a deep emotional bond with her. Eventually one thing leads to another and the two fall in love.
When Ryo regains his position as Emperor of Zairon, Ryo asks, virtually pleading with Nyx to be his empress. Nyx declines, preferring to stay with the crew of the Raza.
Nyx only appears in the second series, Nyx is killed by Misaki Han who slashes Nyx's arm causing a cut. The sword is laced with poison which eventually causes the death of Nyx. Misaki has deep affection for Ryo Tetsuda and wants him for herself so disposed of the competition.
Although dead, Nyx returns as a vision to Portia Lin who tells Portia to continue and carry on with their mission. Portia's vision was caused by the affects of having not much oxygen to breathe. The scene ends with Nyx giving Portia Lin a kiss on the lips.
