Aru Shah and the Tree of Wishes


Nikita was a ten-year-old girl with deep brown skin and blue eyes so pale they looked like chips of ice.

In her dream with Sheela and Aru Shah, Nikita wore her hair a fashionable hair wrap. While on the Ferris wheel in Atlanta, she wore a flower-print dress with a shiny blazer over it and small tiara nestled in her dozens of tiny braids.[1]

After she was claimed by her spiritual father, she got a small, penny sized mark on the base of her throat, shaped like a green heart.


Nikita is shown to have a protective and angry exterior, as she is very protective of Sheela and doesn't even trust the other Pandavas.

She is also a very fashionable person, as she is very fond of clothes. She often makes clothes out of plants.
