"She was not bored before you came! I was enough for her. She doesn't need Ona. She doesn't need you. She has me. All this talk distracts her."
―Nil boasts to Qui-Gon Jinn of how important he was to Jenna Zan Arbor.[src]

Nil was a male Quint who worked for Jenna Zan Arbor. He worshiped the scientist for her brilliance, but she didn't seem to acknowledge his praise.

When Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn was captured by Ona Nobis, the bounty hunter under Zan Arbor's employ, Nil was tasked with keeping the subject under watch. After a few tests, Qui-Gon distracted Nil and momentarily knocked the Quint unconscious in his escape attempt. But the Jedi was hit by a paralysis dart and Nil had brought him back to his cell. Furious at being outsmarted, Nil suggested that Qui-Gon should be killed; Zan Arbor concurred, yet decided to put that on hold.

Once more, Nil had been bested and fooled by a Jedi. When Astri Oddo, disguised as Ona Nobis, brought in a "captured" Obi-Wan Kenobi, the Quint became suspicious. Obi-Wan wasted no time in using Nobis' stolen whip to trap Nil and dumped him in an empty holding cell before he and Astri could rescue Qui-Gon.

When Zan Arbor had to run away after being discovered by the Jedi, Nil was no longer useful and she injected him with a lethal poison.
