Novie is a bounty hunter on her home world, the planet from which all plant life traces its origins. After the Prince of their planet disappeared in search of the Seed, she was contracted to find and retrieve both him and his quarry. She traced the two of them to the Highlands on planet Dirtball and piloted her ship there, parking it under cloud cover atop Mount Tohil.
Tracking the Seed, Novie met the Ghostbusters on the Eastern Mountain. Shortly afterwards, they were attacked by two rune snails and an impersonator mimic imitating Musa. Novie flew herself and Kit to a ledge, where they killed a rune snail, then descended and joined the defeat of the mimic. Novie witnessed the interrogation of the mimic and attempted to communicate with it in her own chirping language, to no avail.
Novie then accompanied the Ghostbusters to the wreck of the salt ship, where they helped to find several treasures and Musa’s tracks. Along the trail, they were attacked by Kukulkan, and Novie fled with Cain and XZ-23 into the Fey Forest. In the Robbers’ Ruin, Novie battled Krano and Kylas, the latter of whom chased the adventurers out of the ruin.
Novie then disappeared into the forest for several hours. She reappeared after the Ghostbusters had defeated Musa, and wrestled the Seed from XZ-23, claiming it for herself. She then accompanied them to the Eastern Mountain Tower and defeated Suresh. Afterwards, Haru told her of a carving depicting a figure like her in the Royal Museum in Nianaqol, and Novie set off with the Ghostbusters for the capital city.
In the Royal Museum, Novie learned the carving was found deep within the Tomb of the Ancients, where all the historical rulers of the Highlands were interred. Novie brought the Ghostbusters to the dungeon and descended to its deepest level, where she found a secret passage hidden behind hieroglyphs and vines. Tohil and Ryloken attempted to prevent Novie from entering, but she opened the way and led the Ghostbusters further down, into a subterranean jungle, through an enormous, bark-like capsule, and into the halls of the giants.
There, she evaded several giants (climbing and dispatching one with a blow to the throat) and tracked the Prince back to the side of Mount Tohil. Kukulkan attacked again, demanding the Seed. Novie grabbed onto her when she was brought low and followed her into the sky, enchanting Kit to help her dispatch Kukulkan from on board. Kukulkan tossed her off and stunned her with a thunderclap, but was defeated by Kit and Cain.
After recovering, Novie detected the Prince nearby and immediately set off down the mountainside. She found him in a mossy grove and confronted him, revealing his true nature to the Ghostbusters. Once he had told them his tale, she beckoned to her ship, hoisted the Prince, and told Kit “See you later”, before ascending into her ship and flying off into outer space.
