Nora is the leader of the mercenary group, the Ladies of Bloody Alice. Upon her initial hire, she will refuse to talk to Rush, instead insisting that she needs to earn as much money as possible, though she refuses to divulge why. Upon completion of The Ladies of Bloody Alice, she will explain the background of the group, revealing that she and the other members were part of an experiment to fuse humans with Remnants, and as a result she needs to consume several times as much food a normal mitra would require simply to stay alive.
It should be noted that she never reveals whether or not the experiment was successful, and other NPCs refer to some of her comrades as "monsters."
