Nicci was a former Sister of the Light and Dark and later the former leader of the Sisters of the Dark. She serves as a Antagonist in the second season of Legend of the Seeker. When Richard Cypher came to the Palace of the Prophets, she was the one to tell him of the Prelate's lies and convinced Richard to give her his Han, making her the most powerful sorceress in the world.
When Nicci fulfills a promise by the Keeper that he will protect her if she serves him, she becomes one of his most loyal and deadly servants. This changes when Richard convinces her that her strength is hers and hers alone and that she does not need to serve the Creator, Keeper, or himself. From then on, Nicci serves herself only and ceases serving the Keeper She was the person responsible for blinding Richard on his quest to retrieve the Stone of Tears to the Pillars of Creation, which a new prophecy had foretold.
