Appearance

Main article: List of Nex's Outfits
Nex has light navy blue hair with side burns, fair skin, and light hazel-colored eyes. He always wears a pair of piercings in his left ear. Though he was introduced in season 6, he did not have a civilian outfit until Season 7. Instead, he was mainly shown wearing his Paladin uniform. In season 7, Nex's civilian outfit consists of a red, long-sleeve shirt with a white collar; a khaki utility jacket; blue jeans with a navy blue belt; and khaki hiking boots. He also wears two metal bracelets and a black bead necklace. In Season 8, Nex wears a gray hooded sweatshirt with green and light green striped edges with a yellow lightning pattern in the center, underneath he wears a yellow checkered shirt. He wears jeans that are torn at the knees and yellow sneakers with red edges and blue laces and black soles.

Nex wears a red two tone uniform which has a teal oval gem in the middle.

Red Fountain
He is wearing a red suit with pointed shoulders that covers the body almost entirely, with a jaw protector that extends to the ears. The suit has various patterns of gray circuits and gray structures on the ankles, thighs, waist, forearms and chest, he wears gray gloves. There are orange jewels on the chest, on the upper part of the gloves and on the ear protectors.

During the underwater mission in Andros, the suit started to have light blue fins on its feet, hands, forearms and calves with a white glow, in addition to developing a semitransparent diving mask. The circuit patterns started to shine in a bluish white tone and the jewels in the costume started to shine in a golden tone.

Personality

Hot-headed and arrogant, Nex tends to act like a showboat and is flirtatious. He is easily agitated by those who appear more skillful than him and will often try to one up them to prove his own worth to those around him. As such, Nex appears like he is always looking for contests of skill, which can make him seem immature for his age, even more so when it comes to girls as most of his initial interactions with the Winx consisted of him trying to show off in attempts to flirt with them.

Despite his typically negative personality traits, Nex can also be courageous and caring when the time calls for it, even to those who do not like him. He is also fun-loving as he genuinely enjoys a challenge and does not let himself get needlessly upset when he loses friendly competitions, as he may even compliment whoever beat him. He can also be rather shy when it comes to girls as seen when he falls for and later begins dating Aisha as he often stutters around her and tries to pick himself up when he speaks his earnest feelings without meaning to.

And after awhile, is shown to be capable in actually getting along with the people who formerly disliked him and now see him as a friend. This showcases that is can put aside his own negatives, rivalries and accepting that he was acting like a jerk.

In the comics, he went to great lengths trying his to impress and gain the approval of Aisha's father, King Teredor; e.g. performing a show by throwing a cake midair then slicing them. Unfortunately, the slices end up on everyone's heads. This shows that Nex can get nervous rather easily and make him very clumsy.

Back at Alfea, Nex, Thoren and the Specialists trained with the Winx in Aisha's gym. He and Sky were up first and he showcased his abilities as he was capable enough to match Sky's agility through the course. But when it was Roy's turn, he was able to impress Aisha more and causing Nex to react out of jealousy and knocked off the ring Roy was suppose to go through leading Roy to be thrown off a bit and hanging onto the platform. This angered Aisha and she scolded Nex for doing so before stamping out of her gym. Later, Daphne and Thoren discovered the Treants' weaknesses and informed the others.

He joined the group as they returned to Linphea in attempt to stop the Trix's invasion. When Roy was turned into stone, Nex called out his name and ran towards him out of concern but was also turned into stone. However, thanks to Stella's new Bloomix powers she was able to turn everyone back to normal.
