Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

The only daughter of Josef, Nelly has been supportive of Josef from the start. She is first seen in Semitt Falls having been abducted by Borghen to work in the Mythril mines. Luckily, she and Paul managed to escape with the men of Salamand while Firion and the others traveled down to defeat the Sergeant heading the operation. She is soon safely returned to Josef who is overjoyed at her return.

When it came to Josef leaving his home in Salamand to journey with Firion and the party, Nelly wishes him well in his adventures. When informed of Josef's death at the hands of Borghen, Nelly is heartbroken and goes into a state of withdrawal for much of the game. At the ending, it is revealed that Nelly has taken a job as servant to Princess Hilda in Fynn as a way of thanking her country for saving her and her town from the Emperor's wrath. She is seen as happy and proud of Josef for what he has done to protect her and Salamand.

Nelly plays a vital role in the defeat of the deceased Emperor's light-half. She, alongside Elina and Kain, Prince Gordon, and Princess Hilda, appear before the deceased warriors, including her father, and warned them that the Light Emperor is just as evil as the Emperor the surviving Wild Rose Rebels are fighting (his dark-half).

Spoilers end here.
