Niylah | Jessica Harmon #1 - We're not so different after all.

Niylah | Jessica Harmon Appreciation Thread






Niylah is a recurring character in the third, fourth, fifth and sixth seasons. She is portrayed by actress Jessica Harmon, and debuts in Wanheda (Part 1).

Niylah is a Grounder who ran a trading post with her father. She secretly traded supplies with Clarke during her self-exile, and later helped her escape the Ice Nation bounty hunters. After A.L.I.E.'s defeat she left the trading post and moved to Arkadia.

She sleeps with Clarke at the beginning of Season Three and again in Season Four. She now resides in the Second Dawn Bunker.

Her people, Trikru, viewed her as a traitor because she lived with the Sky People. She remains as an emotional support to Clarke in Season 4. She is saved by Octavia before the Second Culling and becomes deeply loyal to her during the six years in the bunker.

In Season 5, Niylah is shown to be deeply loyal to Wonkru. When she finds out that Madi is born a Nightblood, she intends to tell Octavia, but gives Clarke one day to tell Octavia herself.

Niylah was born on Earth. She grew up with both her parents. However, at some point, her mother was captured and taken to Mount Weather as part of the Harvest Project leaving her with just her father. Niylah and her father are also members of Trikru.

Niylah ran a trading post with her father in the Trikru area near the Ice Nation border, known as Sector 7 by Arkadia. At one point they acquired one of the Delinquents' monitoring wristbands.

Personality

Niylah is an observant and compassionate individual who falls for Clarke while she's on the run. She is also shown to not liking wars and conflicts, unlike most Grounders. While she has always been an outsider among her people, after her time in the Second Dawn Bunker she has become fanatically loyal to Wonkru and refuses to keep the fact Madi was born a Nightblood a secret from Octavia.

Relationships

Niylah meets Clarke when Clarke was hiding in Sector 7 after the fall of Mount Weather. Clarke waits for Niylah's father to leave every time before she brings Niylah her kills to trade for supplies. Niylah knows who Clarke is but keeps it a secret and protects her from Roan and other bounty hunters by lying about her whereabouts. Niylah helps treat Clarke's injuries. Later, that night they become intimate but, Clarke leaves her during the night.

Quotes

"You killed our greatest enemy. You wiped them out by yourself."
"Safety's overrated. I'm with you."
"How do you explain the sun to someone who's never seen it."
"I'm not asking for anything more than this moment. That's how I live."
"They're scared. We all are. It's human nature to fight."


Notes & Trivia
  • Jessica Harmon is the sister of Richard Harmon who plays John Murphy.
  • Niylah is one of the seven LGBTQ+ characters in The 100 canon; the other six characters are Clarke Griffin, Lexa, Costia, Bryan, Eric Jackson, and Nathan Miller.
  • Niylah's father was a Trikru warrior and one of the sleeping warriors massacred by Charles Pike, Bellamy Blake, Hannah Green, and seven others.
  • Niylah is Clarke's only lover to still be alive.
  • During the first half of Season Four, she resided in Arkadia. She is the second Grounder to do so. The first was Lincoln.
  • Since Roan died in Season 4, Niylah and Macallan are the only characters introduced in Season 3 to still be alive.
  • So far, Niylah has never directly or indirectly killed anyone.
  • Niylah is one of the friendly Grounders that presented on the show, she was kind to Sky People, even though she was angry with them one time when she found out that Bellamy is one of the Sky People that killed 300 Triku warriors including her father, but however, she later restores her relationship with them, possibly due to Pike's death and the incoming event of Praimfaya, although it is implied that she now understands how Sky People felt.
  • In Wanheda (Part 1), even though she viewed Clarke as a hero for killing the Mountain Men, Niylah was unaware that Clarke killed many families in Mount Weather, including women and children. Niylah did not even know that Clarke killed many innocent civilians that have children with them.

Thanks for starting this, Nathalie! And wow, it's awesome. So much hard work went into it, thanks for that.

Please add me too. And Jessica's tweets are hilarious ... especially when she's sassing/dissing her brother.

Hmm, I don't have a favorite Niylah scene, but I loved her in 4x05 and 4x06, when she helped Clarke to save Octavia.
Then she had the beautiful scene with Clarke in Clarke's bedroom
And she cared about Ilian, when Geoff Hardy an his lynch mob tried to kill Ilian.
Plus she gave Jaha the decisive indication with her grounder phrase to find a flamekeeper and to find the bunker.

Love that picture:

Yeah, Niylah hasn't had any stand-alone/bigger moments so far so that's a shame ... but the little scenes that Sonja mentioned are good.

I did my best and also hoped it would attract more people to the thread I had a feeling she wouldn't be that liked which is sad because she really has a good heart.

As for a favourite scene that is really hard. I think it is this one:






And not gonna lie, but I loved Niylah's first episode.




Also this was funny:

That scene in the bunker was also a good one, Nathalie
It's clear that Niylah wasn't happy with Clarke's decision to steal the bunker, but she accepted Clarke's decision and supported her, because she cares about Clarke.

Love this drawing:
