Nexus, otherwise known as Mew Nebula, is an alien entity that belongs to a nearly extinct race called the Ecots, living as the Daughter of Qis and a niece to her leader, Queen Ze’ena, Nexus is the last of her kind, as far as she knows, having been put on a ship and sent somewhere safe during an attack upon her people. After a long journey, she crashed on the Earth that had been overrun by Chimera Anima. Through a series of events, Nexus met up with the Galaxy Mew Team and was eventually invited to become one herself. She is the fifth and final Galaxy Mew.
Nexus grew up in the Royal house on her home planet, Ecoria. She was the Queen’s Niece, and she had been trained in combat and educated by teachers alongside her cousin, Princess Aeie. On her planet, she lived with the royal family--The queen Ze'ena, her daughter Aeie and her husband, and her father Qis, the queen's brother, spending her time both with them and Cale, a friend of the queen with whom she fell in love. Nexus spent much of her time with her cousin Aeie; shopping, hunting and partaking in daily lessons with her, as well as staying beside Cale, the Queen’s servant and close friend, in the Royal Library where he would study. She began to spend quite a bit of time with Cale and developed a deep love for him, as he did for her, and the two of them planned to marry sometime when they felt they were ready, to which the queen and her brother both agreed to honor.
At one point, the Queen of Ecoria, the Ecots’ home planet, was confronted by the King of an Enemy race called the Ia’lmun, led by a barbaric Humanoid king Xyocres. He had overthrown the previous king by assassinating him, and changed how the Ia’lmun dealt with other races. Typically, their brutish race never interfered with others and only fought with themselves or anyone who threatened them. Though the previous kind had been equally brutish, he had more tolerance for other species and refrained from causing a ruckus with them unless threatened.
However, under King Xyocres’ rule, other alien races had much to fear. Their kind was so much stronger than any other, and they were very hard to kill. Nobody ever challenged Xyocres or questioned him. Xyocres began to ask for alliances and trades with other races, and if that race accepted, they would be betrayed and their resources would be stolen. However, their people would remain unharmed as long as they did not act against him. But any race that refused to trade with him or defied Xyocres in any way was subject to termination. The Ecots were one of the unfortunate races to be destroyed by Xyocres and his army. Queen Ze’ena had refused to trade with such a boorish king when he approached her, wanting metals to make armor, thinking of him as ignoble and foolish. Xyocres, insulted and furious at the refusal, decided to wipe out the Ecots and their home entirely because of it.
Ze’ena knew that this was Xyocres’ intention and that she could not stop such a massive and powerful army, so she decided to have ships readied for her family to escape while she stayed behind. Unfortunately, this did not happen. Firstly, her brother Qis refused to leave his queen, and died trying to protect her. Nexus and Aeie discovered the prince, Aeie's husband, shortly after, his body massacred. Aeie refused to leave him and sent Nexus off, her last wish for her friend to survive, and she too was slaughtered. Nexus, too afraid of the destructive Ia’lmun and horrified by all the death and destruction around her, was unable to aid her aunt or cousins at all.
Cale found Nexus shortly after the ordeal and did as told by Ze'ena earlier and got Nexus into a ship. However, he decided to stay behind, wanting nothing but to protect the Queen and keep the girl that he loved safe. So, he sent Nexus, brimming with tears, off to a place where she might be safe from Xyocres and went to protect his Queen. Unfortunately, he was killed, and Queen Ze’ena slaughtered on her throne. King Xyocres, satisfied with his kill, returned to his kingdom without ever knowing that an Ecot had escaped his wrath. Nexus spent an awfully long time traveling in her ship, waiting until she could see a planet to land on. Devastated and shaken from having seen her family and the love of her life slaughtered before her, she felt void of life and energy. Nexus fell asleep, and before she knew it, her’ ship crashed into bright green fields of grass on an unknown terrain full of odd looking creatures. Where she landed was not entirely safe, but there seemed to be plenty of creatures for hunting and bodies of water nearby, so she decided to make do. And, with all the greenery full of life, Nexus was given more energy and returned to full strength, absorbing the aura of the living matter around her.
She explored the area, using her power to exterminate any of the creatures that attacked her. Eventually, Nexus came across a small village, completely empty, but near water and food. She set up a home for herself there, wondering if there was anything other than these horrid monsters living in that world. With all the time she had on her hands, when she wasn’t fending herself from one of the giant monsters, she spent her time examining this new world. While filled with strange new colors, sights, sounds and smells, it was still very much like her own. It had homes and books and various creatures…but she couldn’t understand why there were books and other materials on this planet while there was no sign of intelligent life anywhere. Nexus wondered if they had been wiped out like her kind or if they simply disappeared.
After examining everything she could, Nexus decided to teach herself to read the words in the books that she found. It proved very difficult, but she eventually found out a system of things after a few years and taught herself how to read, write and speak in the language of the beings that lived here, although not perfectly. She could not quite speak it clearly or understand it all too well, but she figured that after two years, she had made an extraordinary amount of progress. After Nexus managed to learn the language and thrive off of the earth around her for so long, she finally came across something different that she had not seen before.
One day, in the distance, Nexus heard shouts and scuffles as though a battle were taking place. Curiously but cautiously, she approached the noises and found four figures that looked much like her in form, fighting against three of the many creatures that she discovered living on this planet. Nexus observed that while they held weapons and carried enormous strength, but still struggled to fight against all three of the creatures at once. Nexus decided to aid the unfamiliar lifeforms, stepping in and using her powers against one of the monsters while the rest took care of the other two. When the monsters were defeated, the beings looked absolutely stunned to see Nexus standing there with her glowing eyes, white hair and black skin, and she almost thought that perhaps they were prepared to attack her, and so she got ready to defend herself.
However, the tallest of the four signaled her team to stand back and stepped forward. She called out to Nexus who, happy to recognize that they spoke in the same tongue she was learning, attempted to communicate back to her, but did it so poorly to a point that the beings found themselves unable to understand her properly. She then tried to communicate back in her language out of desperation, but the four beings could not understand her at all. Instead of trying again, Nexus motioned them over to the village she had been living in, and the girls hesitantly followed. The Ecorian being found a pencil and a blank page of a book to attempt writing out what she intended to say.
Nexus expressed as best she could that she had crashed on this strange planet and did not know just where she was or if anyone had been living there prior. The beings, which she found were humans, wrote back to her that they had lost their home to these monsters and were now living in spaceship colonies a little while away from their planet. Nexus also learned the girls’ names, and she introduced herself as best she could, translating her name into the language known as English. <p class="MsoNormal">Nexus was intrigued by what the Galaxy Mews were able to tell her, and the Galaxy Mews in turn were very amazed at what Nexus told them. Niji, whom Nexus found was the leader of this team, invited Nexus to their colony with Akio's permission. Wanting to know more about the humans, Nexus agreed, and the Galaxy Mews took Nexus aboard their colony ship and led her straight to Akio. When he met her, he was utterly amazed at Nexus: how she seemed to harness a strange spiritual energy, how she walked and how she spoke. Akio decided that he should try to get her to properly learn English, impressed with how she managed to pick it up a little. But in the meantime, he handed her a compact-looking computer for her to type out what she wanted to say so that she wouldn't have to waste time writing it down. It took Nexus a while to figure out all the buttons, but she finally managed to explain how she lost her home and where she came from, as well as learning from the Galaxy Mews and Akio about the ordeal they'd gone through as well. After everything was established and after notes and tests on Nexus were taken and run, Akio asked the Ecorian girl if she’d like to show off her power for him. She agreed, and both explained how she drew her powers and energy from the aura and life of living things as well as giving a demonstration of her abilities on various test dummies.
The Galaxy Mews were impressed, and Akio began to see an opportunity with Nexus. After a while of demonstrations and banter, Akio explained the Galaxy Mew Project to Nexus in its entirety in a way for her to understand, and Nexus began to realize the Humans’ situation. They had been forced from their homes, and their people and culture were slowly dying, struggling to survive. Nexus was amazed at how much the humans were fighting to stay alive and wished for them not have to go through the pain of losing their own kind due to tragedy as she had. Without Akio even having to ask, Nexus immediately offered to join the team, promising to work had and do all she could. She expressed that though they didn't speak the same language or come from the same worlds, they both had a reason to fight. Nexus told her new teammates that she grieved the loss of her people entirely, and she would never wish anything similar to happen to anyone, so that's why she wanted to join them. Akio smiled at Nexus, happy that she was now full of hope for them and willing to help. The Galaxy Mews gladly accepted her into their team, and Nexus began to train with her new teammates, learning how they fought and who they were, all while having private lessons to learn their language better and to learn more about their world.
After a few months, Nexus was much better with their language. She still spoke it brokenly, but everyone found her much easier to communicate with. After a while of training and learning, Nexus was ready to fight alongside her teammates. Akio then gave her a gift-- a weapon that he crafted especially for her to channel her energy through and amplify for more of a punch. Nexus was glad to have such wonderful friends which she could do something for. While she very much missedsed her home, family and love of her life and even continued to grieve about it at times, Nexus was ready to move on and protect her new friends-- Her new family. Akio, to complete her initiation to the group, gave her the name Mew Nebula due to her milky white outfit and hair. She accepted the name and went on to fight with the rest of the Galaxy Mews.
Nexus’ personality shifted and matured as she went through various situations. When Nexus was on her home planet, she was very curious, bold, and outgoing with a kind personality like that of her aunt, Queen Ze’ena. After the attack on Ecoria, Nexus became extremely cautious and very enraged towards anything she considered a threat. If there was something she did not understand, she would approach it carefully until she deemed it safe. When she did so, she would become curious and begin to mess around with or examine whatever it was that she had encountered. When against something that she assumed to be a threat, she would become almost barbarous and be prepared to attack if necessary. However, after meeting and working with the Galaxy Mews and Akio for a time and discovering more about humans and their world, Nexus became more the way she used to be, but still ready and willing to fight for those who she considers an ally. She is very gentle with those who are close to her and will do anything to protect them. Nexus will rarely back down from a fight unless necessary now. She is quick to react and as a result can also be apprehensive and anxious at times- particularly when she first meets the Galaxy Mews. As time passed and as the girls and Akio grew on her, Nexus became happier and more interactive with her friends. While she misses her home and feels guilty for not having done anything, she is glad that she still has a family that cares for her and will do all she can to save them and their world.
Powers and Weapons
Nexus has the ability to get into a being’s mind, though for a limited amount of time. She possesses a sort of spiritual energy, which she has explained to her teammates that is harmlessly drawn from the aura of living things. Nexus also has the power to manipulate air and mist. When she was given the alias Mew Nebula, she also received her weapon, the Blinding Castanets, to channel her power through and amplify. Nexus will attack with Nebula Squall or Nebula Flash. With the Nebula Squall attack, her air abilities are amplified quite a bit. Normally, when manipulating air, Nexus was only able to provide powerful gusts of wind, but with the Blinding Castanets, she can use that ability to freeze the enemy and to slice. With Nebula Flash, Nexus can blind or daze the enemy, or even control/hypnotize them for a short period of time.
Relationship With Team
Nexus admires Akio’s thirst for knowledge and his aspirations. She considers him wise and a good friend, keeping as close to him as Niji and making sure he doesn't overwork himself. There will even be moments where she will aid him in his research.
Nexus thinks of Niji as a strong leader with an iron will, and she admires her greatly. They get along well and fight with similar styles. Because she is quick to trust her leader and stick close by her, Nexus is often considered the co-leader of the team.
Nexus tries to teach Hikari how to be stronger and how to face her fears, often sharing personal stories about the danger she and many of her people faced on her home planet and how they overcame them with bravery and strength. Nexus thinks Hikari has a strong heart but needs someone to push her and guide her. Hikari, of course, is intrigued by these stories and admires Nexus greatly.
Nexus and Chrysalis are both equally headstrong when need be, which leads to occasional disagreements. However, Nexus sees pieces of her own personality in Chrysalis that she can admire and complement, considering her strong-willed and courageous. The two fight well together in battle.
Nexus often keeps an eye on Hotaru but does not underestimate her intelligence just because she is young. The two get along relatively well, and Nexus will do her best to protect the girl as she does Hikari, often sheltering the girl like a mother
Full Name: When translated into English, her name is somewhere along the lines of "The Nexus", and as such, she is called Nexus.In Ecotian, this name sounds and is spelled differently, but it has the same meaning.
