Nenio is a Companion in Pathfinder: Wrath of the Righteous. Companions assist the player by joining his/her party and have their own backstories and unique characteristics. They all have their own Classes and starting equipment.
The line between fascination and obsession cannot be seen up close, only from a distance. Nenio considers herself a great scholar, master of all the sciences, and an unparalleled experimenter. But most others see her as a lunatic in thrall of knowledge.
Nenio joins your party with the following build as a 3rd level character:
Skill Ranks: Knowledge Arcana (3 ranks), Knowledge World (3 ranks), Lore Nature (3 ranks), Lore Religion (2 ranks), Use Magic Device (3 ranks)
Wizard School Specialization: Illusion
Wizard Opposition Schools: Abjuration, Necromancy
Background: Scholar - Arcane
How to Recruit Nenio
- You will encounter Nenio as a random encounter on the Kenabres world map after visiting Market Square for the first time. She wishes to conduct an experiment and ask a camp of cultists some questions. Once the encounter has concluded, regardless of its resolution, you will have a chance to ask Nenio to join your party.
Nenio Related Quests
Nenio is the party's primary arcane caster, with a focus on Illusion spells. This focus lets her use spells like Grease and Phantasmal Web for crowd control, and Phantasmal Killer to deal lethal amounts of damage. With the Spell Penetration line of feats and the Abundant Casting line, Nenio's wide variety of effective spells makes her useful in most combat situations. Shadow Conjuration gives her even greater versatility, so long as one remembers to give her the Powerful Shadows mythic ability to make them more effective. Her archetype, Scroll Savant, means that scrolls become even more effective in her hands, particularly at level 10 when she can replace the scroll's caster level with her own.
Nenio is also very useful as a 'skill monkey,' a character whose primary purpose is to pass skill checks. Her huge Intelligence stat and number of skill points from the Wizard class means that she potentially can have a very high score in any skill she is proficient with.
Nenio is defined by her great intelligence, ignorance of social norms, and brash recklessness. Despite having a goal of writing a great encyclopedia on Golarion, she seemingly has no problem placing herself in life-threatening situations when there is potential for new knowledge to be gained. She constantly rushes to gain new knowledge, even if it is comically insignificant, such as asking Woljif Jefto to balance mud-balls on his head, just because she wanted to see how many could be balanced on a Tiefling's head. She also does not appear to have a sense of shame or modesty, nor any sense of attraction or romance, shown when she casually asks the Commander to have sex with her for purely academic purposes. Her ability to induce amnesia in herself is explained as merely getting rid of information she deems "unnecessary," even if it is something others would normally deem important, like her homeland, family, or her own race. This ability is typically played for comedy, such as when she drank a whole bottle of liquor, and then promptly 'forgot' what being drunk was like, causing her to become spontaneously sober. Overall, Nenio can be seen as the 'comic relief' of the party, with relatively little in the way of personal growth and whose antics typically aren't meant to be taken seriously.
