A Shifter woman who appears to act as an assistant to Ione Hearn.
Her business-like demeanor is fairly atypical given her most likely cultural background. She appears to often be exasperated by Ione’s antics.
When the mercenaries of the Steel Blitz began their attack on the Portal Academy, it was Nilima who contacted Ione Hearn to warn her of this. Since Nilima seemed familiar with the secret wing of the Portal Academy, it is likely that she is also involved with the Black Eyes.
