Lady Nekrimae is a powerful demoness and magic user, with high ranking and advanced skills in wielding both ice and dark magic. As can be expected from a pride demon, she is harsh, condescending, and judgmental; though she holds a quiet demeanor, she often carries a shallow mindset regarding the worth of many things and people. Nekrimae tends to belittle and talk down to others of whom she finds weak or beneath her, often in the from of thinly-veiled criticism. She does, however, make an effort to speaks politely in the presence of those she reveres or deems worth her time — genuinely or otherwise.
Though she tries not to easily reveal this, Nekrimae held (and still holds) blatant favoritism when it came to her own children. She invested more energy and praise into her son, Kharuné, but likewise ended up placing more pressure and expectations on her “prodigy” son. In contrast, she saw her daughter, Khimoré, as little more than a disappointment due to the lack of potential displayed. Nekrimae actively neglected Khimore and rarely acknowledged her presence, and when she did it was often with disapproval and to berate her daughter’s shortcomings, or offer backhanded compliments at best.
In the years since Khimoré had voluntarily left home to live on her own, it’s unclear whether or not Nekrimae’s attitude towards her daughter has shifted at all, but she is rarely the type to adjust her judgment. With most of her focus on her son, Nekrimae prefers not to mention the existence of her daughter if she can help it.
