Nixie was a main character in the first season of Mako: Island of Secrets. Nixie's character is very adventurous and loves playing around and sometimes gets into trouble because she can't stay still. After the first season she went away with Lyla and the pod to find a new home.


Nixie is adventurous and fun-loving to the extent that she sometimes gets herself in trouble, acting before she thinks. It's Nixie's mischievousness that helps lead to disaster for Sirena, Nixie and Lyla when they accidentally let Zac into the Moon Pool.

Nixie thinks both Sirena and Lyla could afford to lighten up. Since she was a hatchling, she's been obsessed with land-dwellers, and has spent countless hours watching them from mainland beaches. Because of this, she is more familiar than the others with the ways of humans, from fashion to ordering food in cafés.

That said, her knowledge of human social rules is sometimes patchier than she would like to admit- and though Nixie throws herself into life on land, she often gets things wrong, much to the amusement of the other mermaids.

Cam had a crush on her in the first season but she did not return his affections. They later became close friends but realized later on that he was just using her distrust of Zac so he could gain access to the Trident Chamber to steal the trident because he wanted to become a merman and rule Mako Island. In season 2, Nixie and Lyla have returned to the pod and are helping the pod to search for a new home.

Season 2

In "The Seventh Cycle", it is revealed that Nixie along with Lyla returned back to the pod to join the exploration for a new Island for the Mako Pod to live on. 

Mermaid Powers

Nixie possesses the ability to transform into a mermaid ten seconds after physical contact of water. Once her body is completely dry, she turns back into a human along with the outfit she was wearing before she transformed. As a mermaid, Nixie has the ability to swim at super speed of 600km/h, hold her breath for more than fifteen minutes, and dive at a depth lower than any ordinary human being. 


In "Zac's Pool Party", Nixie uses telekinesis to move a beach ball to hit Zac so he would move away from Evie.


Nixie uses this power in "Outcasts", Nixie and Lyla stopped Zac from bending water.


In "Meeting Rita", Nixie helps Lyla and Sirena to dry Zac.


In "Dolphin Tale", Joe, David's brother, started chasing Nixie when she was swimming and she hid in the canal.  She got her tail stuck in the nets and turned herself invisible so anyone looking wouldn't see her.


Nixie is shown using this power in "Battlelines" to create a storm in a bottle and make it rain over Zac.


In "Aquata Returns" Sirena throws the Trident into the sea and she and Nixie play Zac on the ground for him behind the Trident


As a part of atmokinesis. Nixie is shown using this power in "Truce" to explode Cam's cellphone.
