Nedra is a Blackblood warrior who resided in the Plane of Ashes for hundreds of years. She was responsible for rescuing Blackblood children during the war between the Blackfist and Blackbloods. She currently resides in Gallwood Outpost, but harbors deep resentment towards those who didn't open the portal sooner. She was killed by Tera for the Golukinj that Zed, then Munt pass to her in a game of cat-and-mouse against the Gods.
Nedra is a strong, independent warrior whose rough years in the Plane of Ashes has shaped her personality. She is jaded against those who didn't free her and her people sooner, shifting the blame to them for the death of her civilization. She cares deeply for the next generation of Blackbloods, actively protecting the children in the Plane of Ashes and ensuring that Wren upholds her duty as High Priestess to teach them the ways of their people. She is an elitist, believing that the next generation of Blackbloods should be "purebred" as opposed to mixed with humans. While she is outspoken about her beliefs, she knows her place as a warrior and doesn't challenge Wren's final say that all children will be accepted into their culture regardless of the color of their blood.
Powers and Abilities
Both a respectful and borderline-adversarial relationship. Nedra has great respect for Wren as their new High Priestess, constantly reminding her of the important work she has, such as keeping their people safe, teaching the Blackblood children, and knowing/continual practice of their customs. This is a source of both annoyance and a urgency to do better in Wren. Nedra also made it very clear that she disapproved of Wren's choice in mate, and having a human's child. Wren appeared to earn Nedra's acceptance by more fully embracing the role of High Priestess, the rituals of the Blackbloods - and of standing up to Nedra regarding any Blackblood having choice in a mate and future children.
Both a flirtatious and adversarial relationship. Zed is aware, like all Gallwood residents, that Nedra is both angry at The Coalition for not rescuing their people sooner, and wishes for the next generation of Blackbloods to be purebred. While Zed himself continuously pressured Talon to open the portal to the Plane of Ashes and bring home the rest of their people, Nedra doesn't see him as strong enough to have gotten his way. Zed, like Wren, is one of the Blackbloods who feels Nedra should attempt to live alongside the humans and integrate themselves back into sharing their world. Zed is taken utterly by surprise when Nedra does just that - dressing to fit in with the human females of the Green World, in a more feminine manner. She complains to him that it's uncomfortable and doesn't afford ability to fight properly. Zed can't help but feel an attraction towards her in the outfit, which Nedra notices, and Zed vehemently denies. She accompanies Zed and Munt to find Golu's tomb. She spots flowers, remarking on the beauty of this world, as opposed to the grittiness and hunting from the Plane of Ashes. Zed appears oblivious, but Munt understands that she wants Zed to notice and like her. Finding the flowers leads to Golu's tomb - which leads to the Gods tracking them, her receiving the Golukinj, a first kiss with Zed, and then her death at the hands of Tera.
