Personality Edit

Biography Edit

Background Edit

While in the Frostweald, Grog Strongjaw entered a portal alone to retrieve an item. Nahla was on the other side protecting it. Instead of attacking him, she liked what she saw. After a while, Grog returned looking quite satisfied with himself while holding the item that Vox Machina needed.[2]

"The Feywild" (1x59) Edit

Vox Machina encountered Nahla again when they emerged in her glade upon entering the Feywild, in their pursuit of Fenthras, Wrath of the Fey Warden, one of the Vestiges of the Divergence. Keyleth attracted the nymph's attention upon picking a flower in Nahla's glade, and upon emerging her sheer beauty struck Percy blind. By way of apology Nahla cast Barkskin on Percy, and his blindness was subsequently cured by Pike Trickfoot's Greater Restoration spell.

Upon finding out from Grog that he had used her heart to save his life (used by Eskil Ryndarien to remove a lich's phylactery that was embedded in his chest), she expressed gladness that he survived and stated that she would begin making a new heart.

Relationships Edit

Grog Strongjaw Edit

Nahla invited Grog into her sanctuary, and after a while the goliath emerged looking quite satisfied and holding the item Vox Machina needed—the heart of the nymph.[2] Several members of Vox Machina have speculated that he had sex with her, but it was later revealed by Travis and Matt in the Talks Machina: Campaign Wrap-up that while she had straddled him after pushing him against a slab, there were no moments of intimacy. She had only done so in order to bequeath her heart.[citation needed]
