Nina, to Luneth

Nina is a non-playable character in Final Fantasy III. She is Luneth and Arc's (all four Light Warriors in the NES version) adoptive mother. Nina raised the two boys along with the elder Topapa in the village of Ur. Not much is known of her other than the fact that she raised the two orphans as if they were her own children. She also appears in the credits at the end of the game.

In the Dawn of Souls and subsequent versions of the original Final Fantasy, Nina is one of the automatic names the player can choose for the Black Mage job.
