Actor

Is it a coincidence that a third actor from the spartacus series has joined the show? Immortal ripper (talk) 11:47, January 31, 2014 (UTC)

should of written this on the actresses page, but yeah pretty much, I think Manu recommended them, and they made it through, as well as Marc Guggenheim was a fan of the Spartacus series. Wraiyf You never know when life will hit you hard, but then you hit it back. 11:52, January 31, 2014 (UTC)

Alter ego

Is it correct to say that Nyssa Raatko is her "official name" and Nyssa Al Ghul is her "alter ego"? You could have a image of her at the airport above and the image with her assassin suit below. Just a suggestion. - Immortal ripper (talk) 16:00, February 13, 2014 (UTC)

nah, pretty sure it was just a fake passport to get through, even though it was still pinged by ARGUS. I know in a few series Raatko was used as an alias for her. Also she was credited as Nysaa al Ghul Wraiyf You never know when life will hit you hard, but then you hit it back. 16:05, February 13, 2014 (UTC)


Spoilers

Some of us are just now watching the show for the first time on Netflix. Imagine how pleased I was to read one paragraph of the page regarding Nyssa and learn that Sara is dead: "the late Sara Lance." Could you people please show a little consideration for others and at least save the spoilers for somewhere besides the beginning paragraph??? The information in the first paragraph should not reveal major spoilers from later seasons, especially since people who are coming to the page for the first time are likely just meeting her in season two. DUH. !@#$%!#-!@#$%! !@#$!@#%$ !@#$!@#$ers... I'm editing the main page to remove the word "late."

Guess what? It's your fault for checking. We have a spoiler policy and we're allowed to add it because it's aired.TIMESHADE @fandom |Talk/Wall| - |C| 04:17, January 21, 2015 (UTC)
While reading an entire wiki page obviously forfeits your right to remain unspoiled, "the late" in the first paragraph is not nescessary to establish Nyssa's identitiy as Sara's ex-lover. It adds nothing to the information about Nyssa and is simply spoilers for spoilers' sake. While there's nothing wrong with including spoilers later in the summary,  care should be taken to only include relevant ones in the opening paragraph. This isn't a page about Sara, and that's not a section dealing with the actual plot of episodes. It's not unreasonable that someone might check the wiki to find the spelling of her name, the actress who played her, or her relation to Talia al Ghul, a more well known daughter of Ra's. It just seems to be bad form all around to include a spoiler about a character that the page is not even about in the opening paragraph, when it's not even needed for clarity's sake, and as such, I've removed it. 205.143.217.124 06:52, February 8, 2015 (UTC)
It is allowed, on the main page we warn ALL readers that this wiki is full of spoilers, if they do not wish to be spoiled, then they can leave the wikia, as that is what wikias do, they give information on what the wikia's about, if it' about the TV Show, obviously it's going to show whether they're deceased or not, and we're not going to hesitate in saying who's dead and who isn't. Wraiyf You never know when life will hit you hard, but then you hit it back. 07:10, February 8, 2015 (UTC)
And that would seem to be a perfectly reasonable policy, on Sara's page. This is not a page about Sara. Neither does the section in question deal with Sara's current status, but rather her relation to Nyssa. By all means, mention that Sara died in the Season 3 section, but having "the late" in the opening paragraph means that someone reading only to find out a character's identity is spoiled on the plot point of a completely different character. I get that spoilers are allowed, but that doesn't mean every sentence needs one. It's an extraneous detail that has little to do with Nyssa, and thus the reason for inclusion is tenuous at best. Add on top of that that it's a major spoiler for a character that isn't Nyssa and there's no reason at all to include on the page.
And I do agree that someone doesn't have the right to complain about being spoiled if they're on a wiki, but that doesn't mean it's a bad thing to keep uneeded spoilers to a minimum. The detail adds nothing to the summary of Nyssa's titles and relationships with characters on the show. It's not like she changed her name to "The Avenger of Sara" after her death and now we need to know that Sara died to understand her titles. It's a summary that anyone wanting to know the freaking name of the character (A name easily misheard or misspelled) would read. 205.143.217.124 07:31, February 8, 2015 (UTC)
I did not come here to read the entire wikia page on Nyssa, but a little info about her. I stopped at the end of the first paragraph because I didn't want to see any further spoilers. But, if you guys cared about people who come here who aren't already part of the wikia community already, your attitude will certainly not keep them here. Wiki-anything is not about exclusion, but inclusion, but your general attitude is exclusive by nature. I see now that the first paragraph includes tons of spoilers, probably all added in spite of my OP comment. To go from one small thing to over-the-top spoilers on just about every major development of the show involving this character in a backwards-looking manner like this is generally unhelpful and not conducive to anything but ego-strokes for the nerd ragers who are gonna roll that way. So, in conclusion, put as many spoilers on here as you like, be as toxic to outsiders as you please, and see where this gets you in life. Generally speaking, your behaviors and attitudes shame the heroes and ideals you claim to honor. As a result of your actions, I have never visited another page on this website, entirely because of the actions of those who claim to help the community. I'm sure I'm not the only one, but I'm probably just the only one to catch heat for being dumb enough to attempt to correct this sort-of isolationist and unhelpful behavior. My enjoyment of the show has actually increased since I chose to stop participating, so it looks like we all got what we wanted. You keep to your selfish ideas/ideals about what the wiki allows, and I'll enjoy the show without them.GabrielX2014 (talk) 00:24, October 19, 2015 (UTC)
Whine all you want, see where that gets you in life. We leave a warning on the main page, it's no one's fault but yours.TIMESHADE @fandom |Talk/Wall| - |C| 00:38, October 19, 2015 (UTC)
I've never seen people whinge so much about being spoiled, it's a F*CKING wikia, you're bound to get spoiled no matter what, even admins get spoiled, sheesh. Wraiyf You never know when life will hit you hard, but then you hit it back. 01:59, October 19, 2015 (UTC)

Name Change

There was recently a name change of the page from Nyssa al Ghul to just Nyssa. I don't agree with the change because, I might be wrong, but I believe Katrina Law is credited as "Nyssa al Ghul" in all of her appearances on the show, and when her character was first announced, she was named as such. Moreover her character template shows the name Nyssa Raatko, which is definitely an alias. I am not certain if she has ever been called by her full name on the show though. - TG90 (talk) 01:40, March 25, 2015 (UTC)

The show never stated her name as Nyssa al Ghul. That's why despite the mother of Oliver's child being credited as Sandra in IMDB, the show never stated such a name so we never never changed the name. Also, since Ra's al Ghul is just her father's title (an original element from the show) we can't say al Ghul is her last name. As far as the show goes thus far, he's an unnamed man whose alter ego is Ra's al Ghul. Cloudtheavenger (talk) 07:31, March 25, 2015 (UTC)
I think now that she's married to Oliver, her name could be changed from Nyssa al Ghul to Nyssa Queen. Of course, that's just a thought. Maymichael (talk) 04:53, May 7, 2015 (UTC)
Oliver didn't use his name while in the League, neither wanted the marriage so I doubt either would think her taking his last name is a good idea and they may not even think of it as an actual marriage and pretend it never happened. --Gboy4 (talk) 22:29, August 3, 2015 (UTC)

About the proposed change from Nyssa al Ghul to Nyssa Raatko

I don't think it's a good idea. I can't remember even a single time Nyssa being referred to as Nyssa Raatko. But she is still being called Nyssa al Ghul by Malcolm Merlyn in Sins of the Father and Taken. Sinead1112 (talk) 15:52, May 29, 2016 (UTC)            Yes no one ever called her Nyssa Raatko, but it is her real name. Nyssa al Ghul is just an alias.Ninja72 (talk) 12:17, June 2, 2016 (UTC)
