Nova was the wife of Senator Nado.


She was present during a dinner party at Senator Sandar's house. While Ari was a devout defender of humans, she was not.

She was later seen performing a strange wild mating ritual before her husband Nado. When humans sprang forth into their bedroom both she and her husband jumped for the chandelier which they held onto in an attempt to stay clear of the crazed humans passing through.


  • Nova bore no similarities to the human character Nova from the original movie, nor any versions of that character from other interpretations.
