Nixie is the main character in Mako Mermaids. Nixie character is very adventurous and loves playing around and sometimes gets into trouble because she can't stay still. Her admiration for "land people" before she was a mermaid, has effectively put their life on land to good use, knowing the wrongs and rights about being on land. She's far more level-headed, and only wants the best for everyone's intentions. 

Description[edit | edit source]

Nixie is adventurous and fun-loving to the extent that she sometimes gets herself in trouble, acting before she thinks. It's Nixie's mischievousness that helps lead to disaster for Sirena, Nixie and Lyla when they accidentally let Zac into the Moon Pool. Nixie was seventeen years old in the first season.

Nixie thinks both Sirena and Lyla could afford to lighten up. Since she was a hatchling, she's been obsessed with land-dwellers, and has spent countless hours watching them from mainland beaches. Because of this, she is more familiar than the others with the ways of humans, from fashion to ordering food in cafés. That said - her knowledge of human social rules is sometimes patchier than she would like to admit - and though Nixie throws herself into life on land, she often gets things wrong - much to the amusement of the other mermaids. There is a possibility that cam will develop feelings for her.  

Personality[edit | edit source]

She is a little bit like Lyla. She is also confident in herself and also sometimes she can be rude and selfish.Nixie is adventurous and fun-loving to the extent that she sometimes gets herself in trouble, acting before she thinks. She is also a little bit bossy. Everything she says to Sirena, Sirena does it.She is not very patient and she does everything at once not even trying before. She is taking magic as something very easy, but sometimes she sees that's not as easy as it looks.

Appearance[edit | edit source]


Nixie has wavy brown hair that stops mid-back and blue eyes. She is quite beautiful despite some of her insecurities. Throughout the series, Nixie would often arrange her hair in various styles ranging from simple buns, braided, loose, or pony-tailed. She has long brown straight or sometimes curly hair. She is short height and medium weight. As a mermaid, her hair is let down and she has an orange-scaled tail with a matching orange-scaled top. She is a very fast mermaid and also very competitive. She wears lots of t-shirts with also like Lyla short jeans trousers. She wears lots of purple shirts so there's a chance that purple is her favorite color.

the sea. She proved that she really likes to race at the start of the episode when she was racing with Sirena to see who is faster.Than at thi end they came to Zac and Cam's boat and they started to play with them, by puling fishing net so they would think that they caught a fish. When the pod leaves she is very sad, just like Sirena and Lyla. Than later she was with Sirena and Lyla at the moon pool relaxing and than Zac falls into a moon pool. And then she joins Lyla and Sirena to find Zac and remove his tail.

In Zac Returns to Mako: Sirena and Nixie strictly reject Lyla's request to use Sirena's Moon Ring to open the entrance.

In Sirena's Secret: Lyla and Nixie try to stop Sirena getting in love with David, that's why they change her voice so it will sound terrible.
