|“||As their source of education and their caretaker... I must apologize to you properly.||”|
— Mina Nishizawa
Mina is the Oracle of Lowee. She takes her job as being the caretaker for both Rom and Ram very seriously as well as her duty as Lowee's oracle. She will not stand for anything that will prove to be harmful or dangerous to either of the twins.
Mina is a tall woman with long sky blue hair worn in low pigtails along with a red graduate hat. Her eyes are cerulean in color and are accompanied by a pair of red glasses. Mina wears a short white dress under a red, long jacket like robe worn open with gold lining and buttons. The sleeves puff below her elbow and have long cuffs, while at her neck is a collar and red bow with a golden badge. Her legwear consists of red heels that match her robe and hat.
By default, Mina is a very kind and mature woman. She is shown to be very intellectual due to her knowledge which she obtains from her frequent reading. Mina is also shown to be very good with children, being able to calm down Rom and Ram better than Blanc can. She often tries to help Blanc understand how take better care of and understand her sisters a little more. It is clear she loved greatly by the twins and appreciated by Blanc due to her caring and helpful ways. Despite her usual nice demeanor she can also be very frightening if the situation requires it.
