| powers = Nico's sole weapon is the Staff of One, a magical staff which can cast any spell imaginable. There are two demonstrated limitations to the Staff of One's power. First, Nico cannot cast the same spell twice, or the spell will "misfire" and a random effect will occur. For example, the second time she tried to cast a "Fumigation" spell, the Staff teleported Nico and Karolina miles outside of Los Angeles.The sole demonstrated exception to this limitation is former runaway Alex Wilder. Alex used the Staff to cast a spell off-panel to bind Karolina's parents in power-dampening chains, and then uses the same spell later on Karolina.The reason for this exception is unrevealed.

The second limitation of the Staff of One is that it cannot be used to bring people back from the dead. Nico discovered this limitation when she tried to resurrect her former lover Alex Wilder off-panel. She revealed her attempt to save Alex after a future version of Gertrude Yorkes died in the Hostel due to internal injuries.

Only Nico can summon the Staff, but anyone can cast spells with it. When not in use, the Staff retreats into her body, which Nico describes as "feel[ing] like I have something in my eye, but instead of my eye, it's... it's my soul."  To summon the Staff, Nico must be bleeding and then recite the incantation "When blood is shed, let the Staff of One emerge." The Staff always emerges from the center of her chest, passing through any clothing she is wearing without damaging the clothing or Nico, however the Staff will damage anyone or anything directly in its way. For example, the Staff emerges after the vampire Topher begins to drain Nico's blood and pierces directly through the center of his chest. [6]

Origin
Runaways #4 (2003)


Nearly two decades ago, a group of petty thieves, minor league scientists, bumbling time travelers, soap stars, and other unsavory characters were contacted by the gigantic Gibborim, who offered them a shot at immortality in exchange for betraying the human race. Newlyweds Tina and Robert Minoru brought magical expertise to this group, which began calling itself the Pride. Several years after the Pride's formation, its couples decided to have children. Tina and Robert produced a daughter, Nico, who spent much of her life in the dark about her parents' dark dealings. Eventually, Nico and the other Pride offspring discovered their parents' secret sacrificial ritual and ran away from home. After a confrontation with her parents, Nico discovered she could control the mystical Staff of One formerly wielded by her mother. When the Runaways decided to adopt new names, Nico chose Sister Grimm, her AOL Instant Messenger screen name.


Nico became attracted to one of her fellow Runaways, Alex Wilder, though this didn't stop a vampiric teen who had infiltrated their group from seducing both Nico and Lucy In The Sky, who destroyed the vampire after he tried to turn Nico. The Pride kept close tabs on their children, and manipulated vigilantes Cloak and Dagger into trying to bring the Runaways home. The kids managed to convince Cloak and Dagger of the Pride's evil, but before the duo could alert the authorities, their memories were wiped by the Pride. After a confrontation with the LAPD, the Runaways decided to take the fight to their parents. Infiltrating the Pride's secret lair, the Runaways discovered that Alex had sold them out, but managed to destroy the Pride's pact with the Gibborim by destroying their sacrifice, leading to Alex's death. The remaining Runaways escaped and were found by Captain America, after which they were split up and placed into new homes. After three months, however, they each escaped and decided to remain together to face whatever challenges life had in store for them.
