Nyo is a 'Highlander,' a descendant of the beastmen who used to live in the mountain ranges of the main continent, Moran (map's in the sci fi gallery.) At 67 years of age, he's elderly compared to most of the other characters in the story but he has a wealth of fighting knowledge. He has a family, but prefers to travel alone on his private ship killing pirates and selling/trading weapons with mercenaries. When Nyo was younger, he used to be a mercenary during the decades old war that ruined the eastern continent, although he never worked with anyone, choosing to fight alonside his old college buddy Ortega. Towards the end of their mercenary careers they ended up finding a girl in the middle of a ruined facility. Ortega settled down and spent the rest of his days raising the girl and teaching her how to dance. Nyo enjoyed fighting too much and mostly ignored his old breadwinner duties and traveled continuously. Now that he's getting almost too old to stage raids on pirate ships, he's picked up interest in seeing how his 'niece' is doing and if she knows about the heirlooms her 'father' left for her... Nyoktin fights predominately like a ninja, using a spear to hook people from a distance and utilizing elemental skills and dancing techniques to confuse and flay the enemy.
