Nidara was born late in life to Whyn, a jackwolf-riding hunter. The hunter had lost her mate in a storm and taken to sharing her blankets in search of happiness after his death. When she found herself with child it was a great joy. However she had no way of knowing who the child's father was given the number of partners she'd had.
Nidara was a quiet baby and grew into a quiet girl; different from her loud hunter mother and her gentle healer sister. She preferred to watch and listen rather than act. Whyn didn't understand how she'd ended up with two daughters so different in personality from her and pushed Nidara to be a hunter, wanting a daughter like herself since Leyna had turned out like her father. However Nidara proved inept at nearly all weapons she tried. Part of this was the pressure that her mother put on her which made her more nervous about disappointing Whyn. She would often disappear into the network of caves to (literally) escape her mother's influence, exploring for hours and often getting lost. She loved the quiet of the caves and the wonders she'd find sometimes.
She was always extremely agile, able to climb rocks and scrubtrees easily as well as jump great distances. As she got older, Nidara found peace in dancing, feeling like herself only when she was lost in the music and movement. But she needed a more practical purpose in the tribe to appease her mother so she turned her natural agility to scouting.
She recently decided to move into her own set of rooms and tent, putting distance between her and her mother. This has allowed her to explore more of who she is as opposed to who her mother has tried to turn her into. She has also begun attempting to learn weaponry again from new teachers (without her mother's daunting presence).
