Enemies

Harumi

MoS77Nya&Harumi

Nya and Harumi

Flattered, Nya smiled and stated she liked Harumi. When Harumi joined the team, she got along with the Water Ninja, sympathizing with being left out of the action.

Once Harumi was revealed to be the Quiet One, any friendship or respect Nya had for her was gone as she stated she hated her for lying to her.
