When the Awoken of the Reef requested aid in fighting to break the Taken curse that had infected the Dreaming City, Nadya was one of many Guardians who answered their call. However, when she arrived in the Awoken city, Nadya became overwhelmed by a feeling of finding a piece of herself and then losing it instantly. Haunted by this feeling, she eventually turned to Eva Levante for counsel. As they had tea in Eva's kitchen, Nadya confessed how she felt and that she knew it was wrong for Guardians to seek their past beyond the Traveler. Eva reassured her that it was not wrong and that the feelings of home she found in Dreaming City did not mean that the Last City was not also her home. After sitting quietly for a little longer, Nadya stated she felt like she mourning losing something that never had. Despite her feelings, Nadya refused to give up fighting and continued to return to the Dreaming City every week to fight against the curse.
