Nerida Yuki is Jaden Yuki and Aqua's late mother, Jeffrey's mother-in-law, and Xion, Bruce and Lily's grandma.

Nerida was a powerful Keyblade Master who gave birth to a daughter named Aqua. After receiving a vision of Aqua's future, Nerida left her in the care of another Keyblade Master she knew, Eraqus. Then she traveled to a new world where she eventually met and married Jaden Yuki's father. During her stay, she became a skilled duelist and decided to retire from being a Keyblade wielder. Soon, Nerida gave birth to Jaden. While she loved him so much, she didn't always have time for him because she was busily planning on telling her son of her past and teach him the ways of the Keyblade. But Nerida became ill and sadly passed away. Her legacy as a Keyblade Master and a duelist would live on through both Aqua and Jaden Yuki.
