This article is about the mindless, zombie-like creatures of Mirrodin. For other uses, see Nim (disambiguation).
The nim are the mindless, ravenous undead of Mirrodin. They vent Necrogen gas - a toxic poison. Necrogen gas conducts energy from the Mephidross spires, twisting and transforming those it touches. The undead-like Nim are one result of the corrupting power of necrogen.
Nim are usually humanoid, with a facial plate-hood covering the eyes and forehead, and spike-like jutting teeth.
The trudging, cranially-plated, necrogen-infected nim resemble zombies in many ways. They are Mirrodin's undead, slowly transformed from normal beings into ravenous, mindless beings. They have a variety of horrifying metal "evolutions," from external steel jaws to razor-sharp "scales" on their knuckles and knees.
Since living in the Mephidross slowly causes blindness, the Nim have metal plates over where their eyes once were..
