Nowa (ノワ) is a half elf, not trusted by either elves or humans. Her only friends are Alleyne and her pet monkey, Lou. She has earned a position of importance among the elves, but they are uncomfortable around her. The Forest Council is all too glad to send her to fight in the Queen's Blade.
She was found by Alleyne as a child all alone in the forest and trained her and intrusted her the "Title of Forest Guardian" and accepts her responsibility to protect the forest here partner in combat is Lou who act's as a shield out of freewill to protect her from attacks that will harm Nowa.
Nowa uses a staff. It is shown that when she goes into a forest, she can pull of powerful combat maneuvurs. Nowa is shown to be very quick - easily jumping from branch to branch when traveling, at high speeds.
Nowa incorporates her monkey Lou in some of her attacks as well. Lous also seems to be able to stretch, and somehow acts as armor, protecting Nowa from a attack from a Scythe by stretching around her waist to protect her from the attack.
