“You were right, Colm... I am a klutz. Sorry...”
—Neimi's death quote in The Sacred Stones
Neimi is very sensitive and something of a crybaby, but is also a great shot with excellent senses. She was trained by her grandfather, the legendary Zethla, the "single-arrow legend"; according to her, whenever Zethla went hunting, he only carried a single arrow with him, yet never missed his hunting target. Neimi's deceased mother was a high-ranked cleric who left the clergy to get married; Neimi's most prized possession is a mirror that belonged to her mother.
Neimi and Colm grew up together in the village of Lark. Colm always defended her in front of bullies and protected her constantly, a habit he still practices. Colm is blunt and sometimes downright rude to Neimi, though his snide attitude crumbles when he sees her cry. It is unknown why he is so harsh with her most of the time, though it is implied that he is trying to train her out of her hyper-sensitivity. They each have somewhat of a crush on each other, revealed in supports with other characters. Neimi says when Amelia asks her if there is a boy she likes, that "He's someone who's always watched over me, stood by my side. He used to make me cry, but I...I love him."

Neimi has very impressive growths in her Luck, Speed, Skill, and Strength, which will lead her into becoming one of the most offensively impressive units in the roster once trained to a very high level. Unfortunately, she also has to deal with her below average joining level and horrible bases, as well as her early bow and foot lock that heavily restricts her use for a time. Players will have to consider carefully if her potential ability is worth the effort and investment needed to raise her, as many other units can accomplish the game objectives without needing nearly as many resources.
The choice between promoting Neimi into either a Ranger or a Sniper is a fairly one sided one. Despite gaining nearly identical stat bonuses, Rangers also gain the ability to use D swords, a mount, and higher movement, which Snipers do not possess. The only advantages to leaving her as a Sniper are the Sure Strike skill and the ability to use Ballista, but because she already has high skill and uses accurate bows, and because Ballista are so rare and seldom useful, it is almost always better to promote her into Ranger. Once trained, she alongside Innes is a great candidate for Nidhogg.

She returned to her village and passed her days in peace and quiet. Years later, she traveled to the capital of Renais as an archery instructor for their military. She never could resist a good cry.
- (A Support with Colm)
The childhood friends became lovers first, then husband and wife. Worried for Neimi's well-being, Colm gave up his adventurer's ways. Neimi passed on her grandfather's skill in archery to her own son and daughter.
