Rebecca Nicks aboard the SDF-3

Rebecca Nicks was a Lieutenant aboard the SDF-3. She was one of Emil Lang's most trusted allies, having solved the ship's first murder mystery, and was put in charge of rescuing Lynn Minmei by him.

She was killed by T.R. Edwards's assistant, along with Lynn Kyle, in Tirol, (Robotech II: The Sentinels: Robotech II: The Sentinels Book 4 13: Requiem for Justice ) although her body was not found with Kyle's. (Robotech: Prelude to the Shadow Chronicles: The Enemy Within)


Behind the scenes

Nicks was the result of a contest, wherein fans could submit fan illustrations of custom characters. The best results were placed into the comic. Jo Ann Faustino was the winner of the challenge, having created Nicks with her brother. Faustino has a deviant art, where she has posted the original illustration.

Her first appearance within the narrative is in the sixth issue of the third book, but an illustration of her is included in the back of the second issue of the third book. Despite being a contest-character, Nicks did not disappear throughout the rest of the Academy Comics run, having a prominent role throughout Book 4 and even holding a page within the swimsuit special.

Her status in the canon is currently unknown as she hasn't appeared or mentioned following the timeline retcon.
