A Skilled Spy
Nakia was born in the African nation of Wakanda to the River Tribe. She grew up to be fiercely independent, though she also developed a romantic relationship with Prince T’Challa, son of King T’Chaka and heir to the throne. Though they seemed destined to wed, Nakia’s path led her to train for and become a member of Wakanda’s War Dogs, an elite espionage group. She excelled as a spy and spent more and more time away from her country as she delved deeper into missions that she believed helped not only Wakanda, but the greater cause of women, especially those being subjugated on the African continent.
Beyond her grasp of languages, covert operations, and espionage, Nakia’s masterful skill as a hand-to-hand combatant allow her to protect not only herself, but others around her. Her fighting disciplines include multiple forms of martial arts, as well as use of hand weapons, such as the Wakandan ring blades she favors.
