The Heroes of Olympus

The Lost Hero

Nyssa is temporary head counselor while Jake Mason is recovering from his injuries. When Leo Valdez arrives at the forge in Camp Half-Blood, she explains to him about the curse that's been plaguing their cabin since the past head counselor Beckendorf died and how they lost the dragon. She is later seen when Leo comes back from his quest and is one of the people to congratulate Leo on becoming the senior counselor of the cabin.

The Trials of Apollo

Nyssa and Harley did not participate in the three-legged race, for they were in charge of it. When Leo returns to Camp Half-blood, all the campers take turns "greeting" him. Nyssa slaps Leo and berates him in rapid Spanish.
