Born into the Terra family, Nova spent her lifetime knowing her empathetic emotions about Terran Confederacy's fall. Despite falling into Ghost Program, she was able to read the minds about the past and the present realizing that her father prevented her from using her psychic powers.
After months of Ghost training, Nova was hired by the dominion to hunt down Raynor's Raiders and the Spectre Rogue Society. Disregarded by Tosh's acceptance, Nova was engrossed with Jim Raynor because the Spectres wanted to free the prisoners in New Folsom. But if Raynor makes a decision with her, she'll lead a strike force against Tosh's specters.
