Nico aka Nikora, "The Canis Minor" (ニコラ Nikora) is a Silver Key Celestial Spirit owned by Katja. Nikora keys are shown to have been sold for as little as 20,000 Jewel.[1]


Nico is a short, stout pale colored green creature with darker green marks/spots on the back of its head. Nico also has a pair of bland black eyes and a golden horn-like nose. Its body often shakes nervously, though this doesn't always occur. Nico bears a similar resemblance to Plue.

Nico attacks Lahar

Katja and Nico meet Lahar and Doranbolt

Nico is summoned by Katja to watch the tree with her while being carried. He seems to respond sadly when she talks of disappearing forever.[2]

As its owner, Katja asks it how long the tree will live. Somebody tells Katja not to wander off, and she tells the spirit if it is scared it can escape.[3]

When Katja and Nico are inside a cathedral, Doranbolt and Lahar come to visit her and Nico. He protectively bites Doranbolt and pulls at Lahar's cheeks in a protective sort of way. Racer appears and his target is Katja. Nico trys to attack Racer, but is thrown into a tree.

As Katja's Magic Power starts to fade due to the Anti-Link, Nico also begins fading away. Katja thanks it before it completely disappears. He waves goodbye sadly, threatening Doranbolt to get his paws off of Katja.[4]
