Nio is the younger sister of Ayesha Altugle, the main protagonist of Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk. Nio is a bright young girl who helps her older sister with her herbalist's workshop. While collecting herbs one day, Nio mysteriously disappears, and is never seen or heard from again. A gravestone is placed where Nio had disappeared, and she is assumed dead. Her whereabouts are unknown, although most people believe that she was "spirited away", or swallowed up by the ancient ruins.
While visiting Nio's grave, Ayesha sees a figure who strikes a resemblance to her missing sister. She believes it to be Nio, and starts an adventure to find her missing sister, now holding hope that Nio is alive. Keithgriff tells Ayesha that Nio may still be alive somewhere - just not in a place that Ayesha can "reach with her hands."
In Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky she has once again been separated from her sister during a journey, and came to Colseit in order to investigate The Unexplored Ruins. Nio is now a travelling apothecary, and during her journeys she is making a living from selling medicine and sometimes helping out in various shops. She looks 15 years old physically, but she is very knowledgeable. Making sweets is her hobby.
Even if Nio has regained her human body and is no longer in a spirit form state, it appears as if beings in a similar spirit state can sense and communicate with her.
Nio becomes the story's main focus. Ayesha's main goal is to find out where her sister is, and if she is indeed still alive. Nio appears as a glowing spirit, although she still possesses her human body.
After Keithgriff tells Ayesha that Nio is in a place that she can't physically touch, Ayesha makes it her goal to gather clues as to what that could mean. Ayesha realizes that her disappearance may have something to do with the glowing flowers that Nio is somehow connected to. In each place that Ayesha discovers glowing flowers, she will see Nio and will get to speak with her briefly before she disappears.
After Ayesha collects enough flowers, she presses them together and creates flower oil. The overwhelming scent draws Nio to Ayesha's location. After this, Nio visits Ayesha at the workshop in Vierzeburg on a regular basis. She can only visit at night, and she is still no closer to knowing where she is or how she got there.
After the player has saved Nio, she can be added to the party and is recruited at Ayesha's workshop. The player can also buy items from her at the bazaar after she has been saved.
Atelier Escha & LogyEdit
Nio is a traveling apothecary who makes money from selling medicine and sometimes helping out in various shops. She came to Corseit in order to investigate The Unexplored Ruin.
When Nio is introduced, she has already arrived to Colseit and has been given a place to stay by Escha's family. Due to certain circumstances Wilbell looks after her, but Nio earns her own money so that she doesn't need to bother Wilbell. Escha calls her "Miss Nio", which she would like her to stop doing, since she finds it a little embarrassing.
Nio is introduced early in the game when Escha and Logy were going to deliver the windmill parts for the first assignment to Clone in the apple orchard. Escha and Nio already knew each other prior to the event, but Escha introduces her to Logy. Nio also mentions that she is selling medicine ingredients, and if there is anything they need for work they can tell her. Later in the game, Nio reveals to Escha and Logy that she can hear a mysterious voice in Colseit that no one else seems to be able to hear. Nio later finds out that the voice is Flameu, and joins Escha, Logy, and Clone, in their attempt to save Flameu.
Nio is also looking for her sister Ayesha, and thinks about her often. As the person her sister is together with sometimes does "absurd things", they are now travelling separated from each other. Nio is now travelling with Wilbell, who also aids her with gathering information about Ayesha's whereabouts.
It's possible for the player to buy items from Nio's shop (located in "Apple House"). Nio will also be the one to visit Logy in the workshop in the scene where an ending will be possible to choose by the player, if Logy is the chosen protagonist.
Nio is a playable character in the upcoming Atelier Escha & Logy Plus.
