As her hepatitis research number was CH25, she was named Niko (two and five in Japanese).
She is the mother of Daiou and Nono. She likes new things and always goes looking for them. Her movement is slow, but she hits us by a chop over the lattice when we are not taking care of her. She was slender in her youth but, now, she is a mere shadow of her former self.
