Biography[edit | edit source]

Physical appearance[edit | edit source]

Nina appears as a young brunette with a long ponytail. In both the mainline and Torneko series, she is considered to be very beautiful, leading to disgruntlement among some of the villagers of Lakanaba of how a bog-trotter like Torneko managed to woo her.[1]

History[edit | edit source]

Though she was introduced in Dragon Quest Ⅳ, the player knows about her life and personality for a short while in the game's entire story. It would be in Torneko's own spin-off games that the player would discover what happened to her and his family after the event of the aforementioned game.
