Nina - The Fairy of Fantasies by theheroofdarkness Nina - The Fairy of Fantasies by theheroofdarkness
:iconreadplz: :iconcommentplz:

A young teen at the age of sixteen. Together with her best friends Ana and Rouge she attends at her second semester in Alfea.

Shes the princess of Phantasia, a seemly perfect world with glittering seas, crystal pillars and artistic buildings. Because of this and its magical aura being everywhere, it also is a well loved vacation place for those who have a weakness for action and art. The kingdom is ruled by King Morpheus and Queen Eileene. Nina also got an older brother named Tristan whos next heir to the throne.

Ninas an open minded girl who puts the needs of others before her own. Even in the most dangerous situations, shed sacrifice herself first to keep her friends save. Though she shows sometimes traits of false pride and arrogance, she never uses her royal title to her advantage. In fact, she wants to be treated like a normal girl as much as treat everyone around her friendly and make quick friends, no matter if they return the gesture or not.

She values her friendship with Ana and Rouge and even would trust her life on them, thought she sometimes shows herself a little bit annoyed whenever Ana wants to couple her with someone. If being heartbroken, she either relies on her friends or retreats into her own little fantasy world by thinking out new stories and creations.

Her main hoppy is drawing and is mostly seen with her sketchbook no matter where she is or how she feels. Nina also likes swimming, riding, wandering and hanging out with her friends.

At one point, she met Jenny by accident in Magix and soon enough the two became good friends as well.

Being the Fairy of Fantasy, Nina has the unique ability to use her imagination to create and change things around her through her willpower a rare skill at her home world as most of its residents have to rely on illusions or certain ingredients to work out powerful spells, same goes for the normal fairies who also are limited to that. Trough her drawings, Nina is able to let her fantasy flow better, creating a link between her drawings and her powers in the progress and with that, letting the drawings become an easier way for Nina to use her powers without draining herself too much out of energy. However in order to control such a kind of power, Nina of course has to attend Alfea to take hold on them. But even then, her powers also are limited as she may be able to create whole buildings, persons and whatever she has in mind, but due to her lack of enough energy for them to last forever those creations are doomed to be gone eventually in the flow of time. Also, she cant use her powers to bring an end to someones existence or retrieve them besides using live time spells on others. Ultimately, even if shes able to manipulate reality a little bit trough her drawings (like making a drawing where Ana buys something she original didnt want to for example and that really happens), she cant change things in the past besides making too big changes around her environment. All in all, it is difficult for her to control her greater powers, so she simply relies on smaller spells and attacks until shes old and trained enough to take full hold on them.

Thought she promised herself only to rely on her powers if she really has to and so far tried her best to do so, she still is vulnerable to those who know about her rare power and try to get her.

But together with her best friends, she is able to overcome any danger."

Alright, I know it's a pretty big text file, but I promise to you that it's only in this and the next deviation as I wanted to create a little bit originally between the four works.

Now we go to the first Character, Nina in her normal attire and her Winx form - on the one side I have to admit that Nina might have some Mary Sue issues due to her powers, but otherwise I still think she's an interesting character after all.

Well, now what's different here? Besides the fact that I was able to create the Winx style better and that I let out her colorful hair to add it into her Magix Winx Transformation, I think she was one of the characters to get least changes.

On the other side, I can also say as weird as it sounds, you can consider this - as the next works to come - as a big "Draw this Again - Meme"

This also is the only work where I got to say that I messed up somehow as I lost the original sized artwork with all of its progresses and with that was forced to resize the whole thing - in that case, I only could cry about this, but on the other side, I'm really amazed that the whole backgrounds worked out so well (though I really had nothing in mind and originally wanted to create something even more "Winxish" until I realized that perhaps my own style could fit better in that and so I made some changes around)

What else? Oh, yes of course - Nina likes to walk around barefoot as she "wants to be closer to nature" as she'd explain in her own words.

Oh, and the fact of her glowing hair in her Winx form and the glowing aura is also made on purpose to emphasize herself from others a little.

Well, 'though they didn't appear here yet (but eventually will if Nina should win this round), Ana belongs to :iconanaladygaga: while Rouge belongs to :iconhakureikai:

Alright, that was round 1 of 4 - now to round 2

So a Mary sue?
theheroofdarkness Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2016  Student Digital Artist
well, looking back at this one after a few years now, I do admit I may have gone a bit overboard with some of her characteristics back then; if I were to 'reintroduce' her, I'd certainly drop a few of those.

To be fair, though, it's not like there are worse Mary Sues out there (especially within the show itself (*cough* Bloom *cough* ) - Winx-based (OC(s)) now, or not...
