Nova has prover herself a superior G.M.P officer, which has garnered the distinction of being the highest ranking female officer in the G.M.P. She is devoted to her duty, tries to live by the "rules", and is obsessed with carving a better world out of the ashes of the First Robotech War. Nova maintains a cold outer shell, never letting anybody get close to her. She finds Dana Sterling's carefree attitude and disposition inappropriate for an officer, and is envious because Dana can show her emotions so easily. It is a cavalier attitude Nova can not afford, for her devotion to duty often causes her to betray friendship for the "betterment of the people".
Nova has a thankless job of trying to glean information from captured prisoners and spies, as well as assisting in security at Monument City. Her most challenging case comes from the investigation of the enigmatic alien, Zor.
