Naira, true to her name, has big eyes eager to lean from the world around her. She's constantly watching the world around her, learning all she can while remaining in the shadows. No one can judge the full extent of her knowledge, as she does not speak to anyone. Many suspect she is a mute, although she has been caught humming to herself, so even that suspicion is in question.
