Nix is a boss in Final Fantasy XIII. She is half of Snow Villiers's Eidolon, and she is fought in Lake Bresha, along with Stiria, by Snow, as a test to prove his strength to them. They first appear when Snow is threatened by oncoming PSICOM troops, and save him from them, before the Eidolon turns on Snow. Along with Stiria, they make up the Shiva Sisters.

Once the Shiva Sisters have been defeated, they enter Gestalt Mode, and become a motorcycle.


Nix is possibly the easiest Eidolon to fight. During the battle, Stiria will heal Snow and cannot be targeted. Nix will attack physically and occasionally charge her ATB to use her Pirouette or Wheel Grind move.


The fastest way to win this battle is to use Ravager and either cue up three Blizzards or three Froststrikes (Blizzard is recommended due to faster casting time) and switch into Sentinel when she charges her ATB to tank her special moves. Contrary to popular belief the player does not need to use a Guard-ability to increase the Gestalt-Bar; one simply needs to be in the Sentinel paradigm.

[view  · edit  · purge]Shiva (also spelled Śiva) is a Hindu god. The Hindu Shiva once saved the world by consuming poison, giving him blue skin around the area of the neck and throat. Shiva is a male god, but can merge with his consort Parvati to become Ardhanari, an androgynous Hindu god of duality. Shiva is the god of destruction along with Vishnu, who is the god of preservation, and Brahma, the god of creation. Together they are the three principle deities of the Trimurti (Hindu Triad). It is believed he periodically destroys the world, then recreates it.

[view  · edit  · purge]The Nix are shapeshifting water spirits who usually appear in human form. The spirit has appeared in the myths and legends of all Germanic peoples in Europe. It is also Latin for "snow".[1]
