Nikora is the manager of the Pearl Piari Hotel (Pearl Waters in the manga). She poses as Lucia's "sister" in order to tell her about her mission. She has a crush on Maki, the owner of a bar. In an episode of Mermaid Melody, Maki asks for her hand in marriage but she rejects it because she knows that Maki hasn't let go of his wife who passed away about ten years ago and she tells him that she'll wait until he lets go of his past.
