"Spectre's here. Hide the terrazine."

- Tychus Findlay on Nux(src)

Nux is a terran spectre who later took up mercenary work.

BiographyEdit

After the fall of Project Shadowblade, spectres became a rare sight in the Koprulu sector. Nux's memories became a haze, but he sometimes had nightmares involving Moebius Corps, dark voices, and something about the end of the world. However, the terrazine always soothed him.

In a theoretical timeline where Tychus Findlay survived the Second Great War, Nux was recruited into Tychus's new Heaven's Devils to fight in the End War against Amon's Forces.[1]

Game UnitEdit

Nux is an elite spectre outlaw that Tychus can recruit in Co-op Missions. He can use an ultrasonic pulse ability that does area-of-effect damage in a small area, which pairs well with Tychus's ability to pull enemies into a small area with his upgraded Shredder Grenade. Unlike the base spectre unit, Nux cannot cloak.

DevelopmentEdit

In early builds of Tychus's outlaws in Co-op Missions, Nux was based around the mage class from World of Warcraft, having lower health but a number of area-of-effect abilities.[2]

TriviaEdit

Nux's bio is a possible reference to Samwise Gamgee as portrayed in the film adaption of Fellowship of the Ring. Upon being caught evesdropping by Gandalf, Sam utters "I heard a good deal about a ring...and a Dark Lord...And something about the end of the world."
