Biography

Nimbus joined the ranks of the Cloud Striders, training and fighting under the mentorship of Rohan. They and Rohan meet the Guardian as they all work together to defend Neomuna from the Shadow Legion invasion. After Rohan sacrificed himself to destroy the Radial Mast, Nimbus took the role of the primary defender of Neomuna.

Personality and Traits

Being the 'rookie' of the two Cloud Striders, Nimbus is fun-loving and boisterous, often cracking witty remarks even in some dire circumstances. They are also highly confident in their fighting abilities, making them a little smug and a bit impatient but is nonetheless a loyal ally and dedicated defender of Neomuna. Nimbus also held their mentor, Rohan, in high-esteem and though deeply saddened by his sacrifice and death, and wondered if they could fill in the void he left behind, they nonetheless vowed to honor Rohan's memory.

Nimbus has shown little interest in debates or prolonged discussions, telling The Guardian they mostly zoned out during a technical discussion with Osiris.

When first meeting the Guardians, Nimbus admitted they had an outdated expectation on what to expect, as they have only ever heard stories of the Lightbearer Warlords, half-expecting them to be sword and shield wielding invaders. Despite this, Nimbus welcomed the Guardian as an ally in the fight against Calus and the Shadow Legion, though they did display a small bit of envy at the powers the Guardians have displayed. Likewise, they didn't object to the alliance the Guardians made with Empress Caiatl and welcomed her as an ally all the same, though she appeared annoyed with their casual manner.
