As the daughter of an Irish Koppou and a British Aikido master Nina developed a well-rounded fighting style. She would become a hired assassin and take on a contract to kill Heihachi Mishima in the first King of Iron Fist tournament.
Ultimately she would fail, but soon after, a new offer, this time to kill Kazuya Mishima, would put her back into the tournament. But this time, it was not just about her work. She had a personal score to settle with her sister Anna.
Nina couldn't complete the contract and was captured by the Mishima Zaibatsu, becoming a test subject for their cryogenic technology. The Ogre's power woke her up 15 years later. Under Ogre's control and without her memories, she became determined to kill Jin Kazama.
After escaping Mishima's grasp, Nina became an assassin for hire. Unable to remember her past, she killed and executed for profit. One such target was Steve Fox, a world boxing champion. The mafia syndicate that had hired her for the job also informed her that he was her son. As she is ready to kill him, she hesitates and is then ambushed by Lei Wulong. While making her escape, she bumps into Steve Fox and shares a short moment before Lei pursues her.
Nina was then able to recall her past, just as she was in the process of seeking out her sister's help. She remembered her rivalry with Anna and signed into the King of Iron Fist to resolve that dispute. Nina then became a bodyguard for Jin Kazama, joining the tournament once more to eliminate any potential threats.
Heihachi forced Nina to work for him after defeating her while attempting to find Jin. Eventually, they would find information leading to his whereabouts in the far east. After saving Jin, Nina splits ways with the Mishima Zaibatsu corporation and goes back to working as an assassin.
One of her first jobs is to kill the members of a mafia wedding between an executive of the G Corporation and, as she would find in the middle of the operation, her sister Anna Williams. She then sneaked into the bride's room and stole the wedding dress, using it to infiltrate the wedding and killing all her targets in a storm of bullets. A storm that would catch the attention of the Tekken Force and force her to leave in a hurry.
Nina cultivated a cold and distant personality that would be beneficial for an assassin. She constantly suppresses her emotions and hides her feelings, but sometimes her authentic self peeks through. When around Anna, Nina can occasionally lift her facade, showing the deep care and respect she had for her father and how much she can enjoy the petty rivalry with her sister.
Nina is a woman with blue eyes and blonde hair tied in a ponytail. Her most recognizable outfit is a purple bodysuit that has various pieces of military gear attached to it. The bodysuit design underwent many interactions, often switching between covering her whole body or leaving sleeves exposed. In Tekken 7, she received a new main outfit in the form of a torn-up wedding dress that reveals her gun holster strapped to one leg.
With her kit heavily favoring offense, Nina is a very aggressive character specializing in rushing down opponents and relentlessly pressuring them by canceling her pokes into other moves, which creates an onslaught of attacks. While it can be pretty risky, experienced Nina players will stick to their opponent and steadily chip away at their health while baiting an opportunity to land a counter-hit launcher. When on defense, Nina primarily relies on playing it safe and pragmatic, waiting for an opportunity to either punish her opponent or get into her optimal range.
