It may sound like the name of a location, but it's the black parasol that Nina carries with her. Upon using Luminatics, Nina can summon all kinds of weapons from it.

Born into a Lumo Noble family in Umbraton, she appears to be hard to get along with but is actually fairly easy of approach... Well, kind of.
Name: Nina Andersen
Nickname: Frigid Cloudburst
Birthday: August 7
Fighting Style: Nina's Secret Trove
To be honest, Miss Nina's arrival at the Colossus is impossible to forget. First, a large procession from the Andersen family brought in mattresses of all sizes and different materials. The butler in the lead reminded me over and over again to let Nina try everything and find her favorite one. Then, countless boxes of all shapes and sizes were brought in that were apparently meant for her pets to live in! Honestly, I wasn't shocked by the sheer number of pets she had with her, but some of them were really special. Never mind the dogs and cats since they're common visitors on the Colossus, but she had pigs, lambs, and even ponies! My goodness... Fortunately, Miss Nina arrived shortly after and solved my conundrum by kicking everyone off the Colossus before expressing her apologies to %s and me. I also heard her mumbling complaints about her father. I guess even Miss Nina has her troubles!
Count Androma Andersen was born to the Andersen family of Lumopolis Gardens in Umbraton. As a collateral relative of the old earl, Androma earned his favor and approval with his vast knowledge and outstanding abilities. After the earl's death, Androma managed to make public the earl's will: "Assign key responsibilities exclusively to Androma among all the descendants of the family." Thereafter, Count Androma Andersen took it as his duty to grow the Andersen family's power and influence. This involved stepping away from the grey market and investing in emerging businesses; expanding the family's social circle to include talents who were mere commoners; and establishing an extensive information network...
What's with the lethargic look on your face? Didn't you ask me to introduce myself? How could you be drowsy already before I've read my own chapter? My part is coming soon! Hey, %s!
Before you, I never met anyone who hadn't heard of Nina Andersen. I don't mind it at all. Uncle Istvan often suggests that I should leave the shelter of my father's wings, travel around, and interact with people from all walks of life... Ah, you're curious about my family's relationship with Uncle Istvan? Well, as much as I'd love to tell you more, I really don't know much. Father told me there was a disagreement between him and his brothers over the Andersen family's businesses many years ago. Many things happened after, and one by one those uncles miraculously changed their minds. Uncle Istvan and my father have been business partners since. You're confused? I-I can't help it, since I was just a baby then!
Before the Darkover Crisis, I had never experienced any loss before.
I guess this isn't your first time hearing a story about that fateful night. The fast-spinning wheels of the vehicle that carries us whilst we were on the run, the Lumo guards trying to block us off, my father staying behind in Umbraton to defend our family businesses, and my mother who passed away shortly after our arrival... The amalgation of these things make up my memory of that night... It was my first time finding the color white revolting.
%s, don't give me that look. I'm not the kind of person who spends her entire life brooding over sorrows... at least not anymore.
Many years later, Uncle Istvan invited Father back to Umbraton to redevelop the city. Father asked for my opinion. Of course, I chose Umbraton over Lumopolis.
You're also interested in my business? Since you asked to sincerely, I'm feeling charitable enough to give you a brief introduction.
All my shops are at the best locations in Umbraton. I have a jewelry store, a boutique, and a weapons shop! All my products are handmade to measure. Hmm! The number of my shops is definitely higher than hers. Bethel? Did I say Bethel? Why do people keep bringing up her name before me? I'm tired of competing with her!
Besides opening up new branches, I'm constantly trying new designs. Check out this one, Nina's Secret Trove! You see how it looks like just your average umbrella? In fact, it allows me to change between different fighting styles. Huh? You once saw a teddy bear fall out of the umbrella? Shh! I'm still working on this feature. Some small flaws are totally understandable. %s, don't you tell anyone! This is a secret between you and me!
Navigator, don't hesitate to ask if you need any help with developing Cloud Gardens.
Ah! I hate this!
Navigator, you better come to see me now.
Is this the Colossus? Something new for me!
I'm upset now...
Heheh! I've got so many ideas lately!
Ah! It's morning tea break again!
Take a guess! What did I have for lunch today?
Have you had lunch yet?
Phew... So very hot at noon.
I've been having trouble sleeping lately.
Nina invites you to taste one of her "delicacies" and tells you the story behind it.
Umbraton is my territory. Eh? I-It's not at all because Papa has been helping me...
Lumopolis? Why would you want to go there? If you really want to though, I can let you stay at my family mansion for a day or two.
I'm watching you!
Eclipsite or not, anyone who dares to mess with me has got it coming!
Well... I must admit that Bethel is as skilled as I am. But one day I'll be a million times better than her!
Sanae looks so cute when she's nervous... Eh? I-I've never bullied her! I don't think...
I like a lot of things, some of which you may have never even heard of.
Me, afraid of ghosts? Nonsense, I love horror stories, why would I—AH! What was that, was it a ghost?
So this is a Colossus... it's amazing! Hehe, give me some time and I'll build one too!
Please tell me there is a place for afternoon tea here.
Why'd you bring me to such a slum... I mean, I'm not hating on it, dummy! But since you brought me here, y-you'd better keep your eyes on me!
No one can defeat me!
Victory is inevitable with me at the helm.
Happy New Year! May the new year fulfill all our wishes. Mine is... a secret!
Ah, so you're not an idiot then.
Another fine weapon.
I will only rely on... my own power!
You bring me here, then you just ignore me. How rude! Unless... Have I done something wrong? I don't care! I'm not going to apologize without any explanation!
Everyone, watch and learn!
A gentleman should take the initiative and greet a lady when he sees her... Hey! Are you listening? Listening to a lady's advice is also something a gentleman should do.
For afternoon tea today, I'd like to have jasmine black tea and sugar-free scones. Huh? You want me to prepare them by myself? H-How does one do that... Never mind, I'm no longer in the mood for afternoon tea.
I'm holding a "parasol," not an "umbrella"! What's the difference? Oh, come on... I suppose learning to forgive a commoner's ignorance is part of my duties too.
Huh? You think my combat has improved? Naturally! Watch out, I shall dominate Umbraton soon!
Wahahaha, weapon design inspiration is just pouring in! Told you, I'm a genius in this field!
I'm already a professional in costume design, gem appraising, and weapons manufacturing. I shall conquer another field now! Which one should I choose... Ah, right, Caelestite study!
As you know, I'm a pretty famous fashion designer. I'm not opposed to designing an outfit for you, you know. Friendly reminder, you should say "It's my honor" in this kind of situation!
Are we like... good friends now? Don't get me wrong, I just don't want to waste my feelings on fools who don't understand other people's intentions...
Navigator, do you ever miss your parents? It's nothing, I just suddenly miss my mom. If she were still around, I'd probably... introduce you to her.
"I Came Back to Life After Being Buried for Seventeen Years..." You call that a horror story? Is this what commoners like these days?
Ugh, a black lump... This is Rediesel barbecue? Even my dog wouldn't eat this! Don't make me—Ahhhh! Eh, wait. It's actually kind of good?
Uncle Istvan keeps trying to get Papa to get back into the business, but honestly... Papa's just an aging homebody. Is he really as impressive as everyone else says?
What are you up to? It's not like I'm checking on you or anything! It's just, just... Never mind.
Are you seriously still sleeping? No way am I waking you up myself... Huh? You're still sleeping? Wake up already!
It's quite late already, are you... still working? Nothing, I'm busy too. It's not like I was feeling lonely or anything.
AHH! Oh, it's you? Idiot, you nearly scared me half to death! I thought it was a ghost...
So you're Navigator? Hmph, with all the talk going around about you, I thought you'd look more special. I'm Nina Andersen, meeting me is your honor.
How much longer do I need to wait?
Don't look down on me, I'm a Lumopolis heiress, you know. Why don't I live in Lumopolis? That's... a long story.
I don't understand why everyone praises Bethel so much and thinks of her as Umbraton's successor... I'm a top student at Dawn Academy too!
Papa's a dummy! I always thought he'd understand me most, but it turns out he has no idea what it is I want... Never mind, I'll obtain what I want on my own!
Everybody, follow my lead!
(S+ and A at BT3)
(S+ at BT3)
+At BT3: Great scaling on active regardless of enemy size
+2 Cluster chain range and conditional diagonals alongside her already high active damage values
+High trash clear potential with low cooldown AoE active and a conditional Sniper chain
+Notable synergy with Bethel's Frankels, especially on 1x1 tile enemies
+Less reliant on low cooldowns/preemptives than Bethel is in order to deal damage
-Most of her Active damage is locked behind breakthroughs (specifically BT3)
-Parasol placement requires planning and understanding of how her active damage works in order to reach optimal damage results
-Confusing kit until you put in the time and practice to learn it
-Mistakes are punishing. You'll have either an increased cooldown when enemies walk over her Parasol, or be stuck with her sniper chain until you retrieve it
Nina is the first Water DPS that has demanded dupes since… well, Sharona? Thankfully, TourDog was kind enough to give her a strong chain combo and conditional diagonals, which certainly take the sting away from the active damage you'll be missing at BT0. She’s a little bit worse than Sharona at this point, but that’s still more than enough for most of the game’s hardest content.
On the other hand, snagging a dupe for BT3 more or less puts her on par with Bethel. The main difference between the two is Bethel's superior 1x1 enemy performance versus Nina's 3x3 enemy performance, and arguably better trash clear potential. In short, she does hold up well against the current Water meta, but comes at a bit of a cost.
Nina also occasionally punishes mistakes with her parasol, which comes as an additional cost to her breakthrough dependency. Maximizing her active damage takes a lot of practice; it often feels pretty smooth, but you’ll still frequently make mistakes (sort of like with Frankel minions). Not everyone wants that extra layer of thinking about how to deal damage, and that’s okay!
It is, however, a very fun play-pattern if you enjoy using interactive units that reward proper forethought and map knowledge.
