"Some people hide behind makeup, others behind a smile. It's still hiding."
―Nico Minoru to Karolina Dean[src]

Nico Minoru is a Wiccan and the daughter of Robert and Tina Minoru. After the death of her older sister, Amy Minoru, Nico crafted a goth appearance to isolate herself. Upon reuniting with her childhood friends, they discovered that their parents used PRIDE to cover up ceremonial sacrifices of the Church of Gibborim. While exploring her mother's office, Minoru found the Staff of One, a powerful tool of nanotechnology, which she believes that is magic due her Wiccan beliefs. She teamed up with her friends and formed the Runaways. Having been framed for Destiny Gonzalez's murder, and with no other choice, they are forced to run.

"You are the only other person in the world that staff will work for. Other than me."
Tina Minoru to Nico Minoru[src]

Staff of One Manipulation: Upon activating the Staff of One with her blood, Nico Minoru is able to command it to create and unleash a variety of effects, making her the only other user besides her mother that can activate the staff.

  • Weather Generation: While holding the Staff of One, Nico unwillingly made it snow inside her mother's home office when she reminisced on one of her deceased sister's paper snowflakes.
  • Sensory Tracking: When Alex Wilder was kidnapped and Nico tried to find him, she asked the staff to lead her the way to him which it fulfilled by creating a series of lights that followed the heat signature of his kidnappers' car.
  • Barriers: During the Runaways' confrontation with Darius Davis, Nico created an invisible barrier using the Staff of One that slowed down the hail of bullets he unleashed causing them to lose kinetic energy and drop in midair. She also created a sound barrier around Tina to prevent her from being heard.

Nico Minoru attempts to fill the hole

  • Earth Manipulation: By saying "Fill the hole," Nico caused sand to swarm around a hole dug up by PRIDE. However, Tina cancelled the command before it can be completed by summoning the staff back to her hand.
  • Sound Manipulation: By concentrating on what came to her mind first she was able to make her mother mute, her not being able to speak.

  • Staff of One: A powerful tool of nanotechnology used by Tina Minoru, but was later stolen by Nico. The staff is designed to activate in response to Tina's DNA, meaning that Nico, as Tina's daughter, is capable of using it.


  • Minoru Mansion: Nico lived in this wealthy residence with her parents and sister. The house was managed by artifical intelligence named Wizey which she would often use. 
  • Timely Coffee: Nico often met with the other Runaways at the Timely Coffee, where they would discuss their plans to take down PRIDE.
