Ivy Latimer

Nixie is a main character in Mako Mermaids. She is portrayed by Ivy Latimer.

Nixie Santos is Nixie's cover name while she is on land. Her cover family consists of Rita Santos, Lyla Santos, and Sirena Santos.

Nixie is adventurous and fun-loving to the point that she sometimes gets herself in trouble, acting before she thinks. It's Nixie's mischievousness that helps lead to disaster for her, Sirena, and Lyla when they accidentally let Zac into the Moon Pool.

Nixie thinks both, Sirena and Lyla, could afford to lighten up. Since she was a hatchling, she's been obsessed with land-dwellers, and has spent hours watching them from the beaches. Because of this, she is more familiar with the way of humans. That said - her knowledge of social human skills is sometimes patchier then she would like to admit - and though Nixie throws herself into life on land, she often gets things wrong - much to the amusement of the other mermaids! Also, she has been crushed on by Cam, and possibly likes him too. 

Description

Nixie is adventurous and fun-loving to the extent that she sometimes gets herself in trouble, acting before she thinks. It's Nixie's mischievousness that helps lead to disaster for Sirena, Nixie and Lyla when they accidentally let Zac into the Moon Pool.

Nixie thinks both Sirena and Lyla could afford to lighten up. Since she was a hatchling, she's been obsessed with land-dwellers, and has spent countless hours watching them from mainland beaches. Because of this, she is more familiar than the others with the ways of humans, from fashion to ordering food in cafés. That said - her knowledge of human social rules is sometimes patchier than she would like to admit - and though Nixie throws herself into life on land, she often gets things wrong - much to the amusement of the other mermaids. There is a possibility that cam will develop feelings for her. 

Powers

Nixie possesses the ability to transform into a mermaid ten seconds after at the touch of water. She turns back into a human a few minutes after she is out of the water and when the water on her has fully dried. Once her body is completely dry, her human form reverts back to what she appeared to be before her mermaid transformation.

Speed Swimming

Nixie has the ability to swim at super speed of 600km/h, hold their breath for more than fifteen minutes, and possibly dive at a depth lower than any ordinary human being.

Telekinesis

In "Zac's Pool Party", Nixie uses telekinesis to move a beach ball to hit Zac so he would move away from Evie.

Hydrokinesis

Nixie uses this power in "Outcasts", Nixie and Lyla stopped Zac from bending water.

Hydro-Thermokinesis

In "Meeting Rita", Nixie helps Lyla and Sirena to dry Zac.

Invisibility

In "Dolphin Tale", Joe, David's brother, started chasing Nixie when she was swimming and she hid in the canal.  She got her tail stuck in the nets and turned herself invisible so anyone looking wouldn't see her.

Atmokinesis

Nixie is shown using this power in "Battlelines" to create a storm in a bottle and make it rain over Zac.

Electrokinesis

As a part of Atmokinesis.

Volume Reduction

Etymology

The name, Nixie, refers to a magical water creature similar to a mermaid called a Melusine or Neck. The Melusine are often depicted as having two tails. Also, Nixie is the name of a different Germanic mermaid shapeshifter and water spirit. Some legends depict the original Melusine as transforming only on Saturdays. A version of a Nixie/Melusine is the Starbucks logo that has two tails. Also, some legends depict Melusines sometimes transforming into dragons when they are discovered.

Trivia

  • Nixie, like Sirena, can speak dolphin.
  • She, along with Sirena and Lyla, got kicked out of the pod.
  • She knew more about humans than Lyla and Sirena.
  • Nixie is sort of the same as Emma.
