Nix Marsten was a Red who possess a superhuman ability due to a mutation. He was one of the first of the newbloods that Mare was able to track down to help the Scarlet Guard.

Biography Edit

He had lost both his 19 year old daughters Dara and Jenny Marsten to the war. They were part of the Hammer Legion, a legion whose fate was decided by Cal. Due to this, Nix fosters a direct hatred of Cal.

Nix is the first newblood that Mare, Cal, Farley, Kilorn, and Shade track down, due to his proximity to Tuck. Farley and Shade are elected to sneak into the town in which he lives and bring him safely to the rest. He recognizes Mare on sight, as well as Cal, whom he proceeds to attack. Mare attempts to electrocute him, but finds his skin invulnerable to her lightning.

As his wife is dead as well, Nix agrees to leave his home and accompany the splinter group to find more newbloods.

He dies in the battle at Corros Prison.

Personality Edit

Physical description Edit

He is described as a gruff fat man, middle-age man (almost 49), who has the haunted look of someone that has lost everything.

Abilities and skills Edit

Nix has the mutation that grants him a Silver-like ability despite having Red blood. As a result, his ability makes him impenetrable to all physical attacks (including Mare's lightning). Unlike a silver stoneskin, his skin remains ruddy and smooth, and does not turn into stone.
