Charming and gracious, Lady Nienor was at one point considered by some to be a prime candidate for marriage to Prince Arvedui. Though the Prince instead married the Princess of Gondor, Lady Nienor has never seemed dismayed or upset by this. During the attack on Aelinnost Herynnen, she risked her life to stand between the Queen and her assailants, and was badly wounded.

She is intelligent and thorough, and often seems to know of, or guess at, news before others of the Court receive word. Her hall at Tham Ornen sits above the waters of Lake Evendim on the eastern shore somewhat north of the Queen’s state, but her holdings do not extend far beyond the hall and its tower, and do not include the nearby fortress of Ost Forod.
