Nanina was one of the Savages who lived outside the city of the Elders. She was sent by Chal and Tor to warn their people that Exorse was searching the scrubland, but she was captured by Exorse and taken to the Elders' city for transference. When the process was finished, she was returned to her people.
She berated one of her people when he told Exorse where Steven Taylor, Dodo Chaplet and Chal were. She later treated Exorse well after he was captured by Steven and stopped Tor from killing him. When Exorse escaped, Nanina followed him and tried to convince him not to betray them to Jano, and told him that he owed his life to her.
