Nelaira [ne- lah - ee - ra] is a female character first featured in the prologue, she is infected with The Ink and imprisoned somewhere due to her knowledge about the origin of the Ink and the truth behind the current state of the world. She used to be a powerful mage who could use transmutation Magic.
Nelaira knew she was dying from the Ink that was growing inside of her that tainted her mana preventing her from using magic. She was trapped inside a prison cell that had metal walls with a high mana resistance. She knew a secret that she believed must be told to a male that worked in Muni she knew so her death would not be in vain. Nelaira and the unspecified male seemed to be close with each other that the male seemed to be her strength to keep on fighting.
The secret that Nelaira knew tied in with the source of the Ink and the truth behind the Shield of Aegis. The forbidden knowledge that she held seem to be the ugly truth while everyone else in Halena seemed to be deceive by the lies told by "them." She began to plan on how to unravel the truth to the public by passing "them" and decided to act when her mind is clear again.
