The specter of love ever draws fools such as you like butterflies to nectar. And yet, the real feast is yet to come... when I dine upon your souls!
~ Nuibaba to Alm.
Come close... Let me share with you death's embrace!
~ Nuibaba before fighting the Deliverance.

Nuibaba is a minor antagonist from Fire Emblem Gaiden and its remake, Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. Originally a male arcanist, Nuibaba was heavily redesigned into a female witch for the remake. In both games, Nuibaba allied with the Duma Faithful and dwells within an ornate chateau on Fear Mountain.

Nuibaba is voiced by Junko Kitanishi in Japanese. In English, she is voiced by Cindy Robinson, who also provides the English voice of Aversa in the Fire Emblem franchise.

Appearance

In Fire Emblem Gaiden, Nuibaba wears a dark blue cloak that obscures one eye. He has green, snake-like skin, fangs, and his exposed eye is light pink.

In Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, Nuibaba is a pink haired and purple-skinned undead woman in a black dress with a golden masquerade eye mask that covers her scarred left eye. Carved on this mask is the death-mask of her former lover. Nuibaba also has two large black horns with small purple grooves.

Personality

Unlike most members of the Duma Faithful, Nuibaba became a witch after selling her soul to Medusa instead of Duma. As such, she did not become a mindless puppet of the War Father, but a cruel and narcissistic woman with little compassion for others, including Duma. Similarly, Nuibaba shares Jedah's obsession with capturing Brand bearers, but unlike the High Priest of the Faithful she sought to sacrifice them to Medusa in exchange for immortality and eternal youth. Until obtaining a Brand-bearer, however, Nuibaba caught and sacrificed beautiful maidens from all across Rigel. These obsessions likely stemmed from Nuibaba's disfigurement in a bandit attack and subsequent betrayal by her former lover and sister.

Nuibaba is also rather manipulative of others. Taking advantage of Berkut's fiery spirit, she successfully offered him a cursed mirror despite his distate for the Faithful and their magic. Later, Nuibaba lured the Brand bearer Alm to her manor by sending him an illusion of Celica claiming that she was captured.

Biography

Backstory

In Nuibaba's youth, she was a beautiful maiden who lived a charmed life in Rigel with a man she fell in love with. However, after Nuibaba was horribly scarred by brigands, her supposed lover quickly lost interest and ignored her to pursue her younger, similarly pretty sister. As their relationship depended, the two began to see Nuibaba as a nuisance and plotted to get rid of her. Eventually, the man and the younger sister lured Nuibaba to a cliffside deep in the woods, and pushed her over the edge. As a broken Nuibaba lay at the cliff's bottom, the spirit Medusa smelled her dying scent and appeared before her, promising her life and power in exchange for her soul. Nuibaba agreed to a contract, reviving as a witch.

After murdering her former lover and traitorous sister, Nuibaba secluded herself in her chateau for several years, emerging to kidnap any beautiful Rigelian women and sacrifice them to Medusa. With each sacrifice, Nuibaba extended her lifespan and restored her youth. In her obsession with immortality Nuibaba also joined the Duma Faithful. Despite her lack of true faith in Duma, Nuibaba's services were so great that Jedah allowed her to command his daughter Marla.

War of the Deliverance

As the cruel General Jerome tormented locals near Fear Mountain, Nuibaba kidnapped three maidens, including a fellow member of the Faithful named Tatiana. While she intended to sacrifice all three to Medusa, Nuibaba also held Tatiana captive as a means to force the noble Zeke into fighting alongside Jerome, who he otherwise despised. During the War of the Deliverance, Nuibaba also learned that the Deliverance's leader Alm possessed a Brand, which made him a particularly potent sacrifice for Medusa. Emperor Rudolf's nephew Berkut deeply resented Alm for defeating him in battle despite his low birth; sensing an opportunity, Nuibaba approached Berkut as he prepared to guard the border between Zophia and Rigel.

After needling him over his loss to Alm, Nuibaba offered to perform the necessary rituals and initiation rites for Berkut so that he may obtain Duma's power, which he refused. Nuibaba warned Berkut that Rudolf would not grant Berkut a third chance to prove himself should he fail to secure the border, and spoke of the vast power Jedah gained after offering the War Father his daughters' souls. This anecdote only served to disgust Berkut, who insisted on defeating Alm with his strength alone. Finally, Nuibaba offered Berkut a cursed mirror, and instructed him to break it should he face defeat during the border battle. Though reluctant, Berkut ultimately accepted the cursed artifact. In the end, Berkut swallowed his pride and smashed the mirror, which summoned powerful Terrors to aid him, but they were dispelled by a charm Alm's good friend Celica gave him years ago.

Her plan thwarted, Nuibaba switched tactics, conjuring an illusory Celica to tell Alm that Nuibaba captured the true Celica and held her hostage. Though all suspected the message was a trap, the Deliverance ventured up Fear Mountain, forcing Marla to retreat when she blocked their progress. Upon entering Nuibaba's Abode, the Deliverance engaged her in battle. Despite the dark magic at her disposal, Nuibaba was slain, freeing Tatiana and the other two women she captured.

Trivia

  • According to unused internal data, Nuibaba is one-hundred and twenty-four years old.
  • In Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, Nuibaba's motivations seem to be an allusion to Elizabeth "the Blood Countess" Báthory, a Hungarian noblewoman accused of having killed thousands of young women to bathe in their blood and keep herself young.
  • In addition to Fire Emblem villains Nuibaba and Aversa, Cindy Robinson also provides the English voices of Fire Emblem heroes Minerva and Libra. She also voiced Hinoka and Peri in English from Fire Emblem Heroes onward.
  • In the Fire Emblem Gaiden novelization, Nuibaba is killed by Zeke during his duel with Alm.
