Nyta Colton is a character in Pathfinder: Kingmaker.
Biography[edit | edit source]
Nyta Colton was the daughter of the village headman, Wilber Colton, in a village located in the Swamp Witch's Hut. Nyta was engaged to marry another villager, Dorsy, when a local dryad queen by the name of Callitropsia appeared before her. The two quickly planned to be wed themselves as Nyta broke off her engagement with Dorsy; whether this sudden infatuation occurred naturally or Callitropsia charmed Nyta is lost to the ages. After learning that Dorsy had approached her father to try and persuade him to stop the wedding between herself and Callitropsia, Nyta invoked an ancient curse to kill Wilber. Enraged by the loss of his betrothed, Dorsy unwittingly invoked an ancient curse against Callitropsia and Wilber. When the curse took hold, the dryad was transformed into the creature now known as the Scythe Tree, and she proceeded to kill Nyta, whose body was whisked away by other fey and remains in a state of gentle repose to this day. Wilber died as a result of the curse, though since Dorsy had invoked the same curse and it is unclear whose curse killed him first.
Nyta learned of the curse used to kill her father from a maiden in a dream that she had, perhaps implying that Nyrissa had a hand in this tragedy as she appeared before the player during a dream as well.
Interactions[edit | edit source]
Nyta is not directly involved in any quests, but is tangentially related to the quests Coins for a Dead Man's Eyes and Gnarled Branches. After the Scythe Tree is killed and the Old Wedding Ring is retrieved, the ring may be placed on Nyta's body for an experience reward. The player may also place flowers on Nyta's body when they find it, or steal the jewelry remaining on the body.
If the player steals the jewelry on Nyta's body, they will face a random encounter in which a Nereid will summon a series of creatures, including giant frogs, tatzlwyrms and greater tatzlwyrms, and a Poisonous Shambling Mound to deliver retribution unto the player for the theft.
