Nilin Cartier-Wells is the daughter of Scylla and Charles Cartier-Wells. Nilin belongs to the group of underground activists known as the Errorists. A former Memory hunter, Nilin is gifted with the ability to enter people's minds and steal or alter their memories, an ability she learned from her father.
Nilin the Memory Hunter
The game begins with her waking up in the Bastille prison in Paris, as she has no memory of what is going on. The authorities, fearful of her knowledge and capabilities have arrested Nilin and wiped her memory clean. She is soon rescued with the guidance of a mysterious character named Edge, putting herself into a coffin and landing in Slum Sector 404.
Regaining her Memories
After her escape from prison, Nilin sets our on a mission to recover her identity, helped by Edge. This search for her past leads to her be hunted by the very people that created this surveillance society. During the course of the story, Nilin will start remembering who she was and re-learning all the skills that made her one of the Errorists' leading memory hunters.
Nilin is rather sarcastic, as seen when she makes comments, puns, and jokes throughout the game. She is also rebellious and tends to talk back, most often to Edge when communicating during missions, displaying her cautiousness in trusting him. As the story progresses, she develops guilt, as seen when recollecting her murder of Frank Forlan, and restraint, particularly when interacting with her family.
Skills and Abilities
Nilin is a capable and versatile martial artist. Following her escape from the Bastille prison, she recalls only basic combat moves, which she uses to fight the leapers in Slum 404. As time progresses, memories of more advanced techniques return to her.
Nilin is also an experienced climber and uses this skill to traverse various structures to reach her goals.
- ↑ CVG: Remember Me’s lead character is a mixed-race female, which stands out against the crowd of white male heroes. There’s a sense that publishers attach risk to anything other than white male leads. At any stage in development, did you feel you needed to change the lead character’s appearance?
Jean-Maxime Moris: No, we wanted Nilin to stand out. I think these sort of issues become self-fulfilling prophesies; people saying that only white males sell so then everyone only does white males. If you start believing these things, you get your head inside this cold marketing strategy that you cannot get your head around. It becomes a pretty fucking racist and misogynistic way of thinking about lead characters.
