Lucy Nyu Elfen Lied Wallpaper




Lucy and Nyu are the separate personalities of a character from the Japanese Anime and Manga seires Elfen Lied, originally created by Japanese author Lynn Okamoto.

Lucy
hates humans mainly because of how she was treated by her human peers as a child. She seems to lack empathy, kills without much concern, and acts somewhat sadistically.

Nyu appeared after an anti-tank rifle round ricocheted off a metallic helmet encasing her head. Nyū has a childlike personality and infantile knowledge of the world, and lacks spoken language skills. Nyū is innocent and incapable of violent acts, a foil to the normally cold and sadistic Lucy

When Nyū is attacked violently, she regresses into Lucy. Likewise, when Lucy is treated with love and kindness, she will uncontrollably switch back into Nyū.

the artwork displayed in the intro and outro of “Elfen Lied“ is inspired by the work of the Austrain artist Gustav Klimt. see animeafterglow
