Nevy Nervine is Gil Marverde's demon as well as his best friend. She has no memory of her former life. She speaks in pink text in a dark blue speech bubble, usually with a heart at the bottom. She first appears on page 0125.
Her first name "Nevy" is an anagram of envy, her associated sin. A nervine is a plant remedy that has a beneficial effect upon the nervous system, which may reference Gil's desired profession. Nevy's story contains many references to "The Little Mermaid".
Nevy is a mermaid-like Covetess. She has two horns resembling coral, blue circles resembling freckles scattered over her body, and slightly pointed ears. Her eyes are bright green, referencing the expression "green-eyed monster".
In Nevy's spirit form, her skin is a pinkish-purple and her horns, hands, and feet are bright pink. Her hair is very long, bright blue, and resembles both water and tendrils of kelp. Nevy wears a two-piece outfit resembling a flowing, strapless swim dress.
When Nevy was alive, however, she wore a long silk-and-chiffon dress held together with silver fins and ribbons fit for her status as a princess. Her hair was a darker blue and she had pink diamond scales on her cheeks.
Nevy is a kind-hearted woman who has become strongly attached to Gil Marverde, the only person in the world who can see her and keep her company. She is aware of his naivete and is highly protective of him, warning him that Ava Ire, Maggie Lacivi, and Odin Arrow could be dangerous and begging him to flee at the first sign of trouble. As her associated sin is envy, she may have felt threatened by the trio, especially by the flirtatious Maggie. Nevy repeatedly tries to take Gil's attention away from Maggie and urges him to make her leave, objecting highly to his suggestion of taking the tree with him to TITAN's headquarters.
Nevy has amnesia of her past life and is very interested in recalling her memories. She constantly reminds Gil that he has promised to ask TITAN about her life and is terrified that he won't do so. Interestingly, the sight of Odin reminds her of the sensation of being in love.
Skills and Abilities
Nevy's abilities seem to be based on the element of water. She can be seen frequently blowing bubbles or materializing bubbles with different shapes. Notably, Wrathia instructed Ava to find Nevy because she is almost as powerful as Pedri.
After Ava rushes to the bathroom after vomiting lava, Gil accidentally wakes Maggie up and becomes the object of her affections. As Gil narrates his life story to Maggie, he begins to stutter at the same words "Except.." at the memory of Nevy's first few appearances. As he snaps out of his flashback he continues to make conversation with Maggie despite Nevy's annoyed attempts at being noticed.
At the Titan HQ, Gil and Maggie are waiting for Gil to become a doctor and Maggie to become a follower. They are interrupted by a blood soaked man stumbling in and desperately asking for soldiers, prior to Ava's encounter and transformation in the Gate to Paradise. Gil is once again pestered by a Nevy in a wedding dress attempting to gain his attention.
At TITAN HQ, after Ava's potion-induced rage, inside a cargo vessel, she is shown to be sitting inside and listening to Gil and Maggie's argument and looking on with an annoyed expression.
