Nica Pierce is a paraplegic woman, who lived with her mother. She had been studying at the local college to become a psychologist, but failed to complete her thesis and withdrew.
Nica Pierce was born on November 29th, 1988. During the events of Child's Play. We learn in Curse of Chucky she was paralyzed from the waist down as a result of Charles Lee Ray stabbing her mother's uterus while she was pregnant.
Her life between the original Child's Play and Curse of Chucky is unknown, although it is known she attended a city college in the psychology department. However, she never finished her thesis on a fictional disorder called completion anxiety and wasn't able to graduate.
In 2013 Nica had lived with her mother. A strange package that contained a Good Guy doll showed up at their home, the same night Nicas mother was murdered with a large pair of scissors. Her family comes to the house to go to her mother's funeral. Throughout the night Nica's entire family, except for Alice, was murdered by Chucky. Nica fought with Chucky which lead to the police finding her bloodied and holding a knife.
Nica was declared legally incompetent and was remanded to a facility for the criminally insane. Soon she would be diagnosed with schizophrenia.
Nica was held in a maximum-security facility called Lochmore for four years, and in 2017 she was moved to a medium-security facility called Harrogate. There Chucky finds her with the intention of using a new spell in order to transfer a piece of his soul into her body. He succeeds and leaves with Tiffany using Nica's body.
Curse of Chucky (2013)
Nica gave the doll to her niece, Alice, not thinking anything of it. But with a strange feeling coming about her house that night, she grows more suspicious of the doll. She phones the post office and discovered that the package came from the evidence depository. She looked up all the information about the doll, and unravels the history of Andy Barclay and Chucky. Scared as the power goes out, and of what she just discovered, Nica shouts for Barb who appears on the second floor landing holding the doll, the two begin to argue because Barb thinks Nica had prior knowledge of the nanny cam she's just found out about. Nica demands Barb put the doll down, but she refuses and dismisses her sister as Nica calls her to come back. Shortly after however, with noises coming from upstairs, Nica climbs up to the attic staircase, only to have Barb, and her recently removed eyeball, courtesy of Chucky, roll down to her.
Chucky reveals himself, proclaiming that Nica is next. Frantic, she scrambles to a closet to get a spare wheelchair, and wheels herself to Ian’s room. She wakes up Ian and told him that Chucky is alive and that he has to help find Alice. He takes Nica down to the garage for her safety, and returns to the inner part of the house in search of Alice. Chucky sneaks into the garage then the car, and begins to rev the engine in an attempt to kill Nica. Thinking fast, Nica grabs a hatchet and smashes the car window, then tries to grab the keys and turn the car off, but the noise makes Ian return, and seeing Nica with the hatchet, combined with the poisonous gas in the air, he accuses her of murdering Barb and Jill. She pleads to him that she didn't, and from the stress of the situation has a heart attack and faints.
When she wakes, she has been taped to her chair by Ian, who sees her as a murderer. He intends to prove her guilt with the use of the camera he attached onto Chucky. However, when he turns it on, he sees the live feed of Chucky charging the wheelchair into him. While Ian is on the ground, Chucky grabs the hatchet and chopped his lower jaw off. He sets his sight onto Nica afterwards, who has wriggled out of her restraints. He axes Nica in the knee, she felt nothing and manages to remove it from her leg and, with the blunt side, knocks his head clean off. With a sigh of relief, Nica tries to tie up the wound to stop the blood. However, as a doll, Chucky simply reattaches his head, and then proceeds to push Nica off the balcony to the floor below.
Chucky slowly walks down the stairs to her, explaining his disillusioned history with her mother, Nica catches her breath and begins to taunt him and uses her therapy skills on Chucky, just then the power comes back on, allowing her to get to her lift. But the power goes off again, and Nica must keep the door shut as Chucky slashes at her fingers with his knife. With a quick move Nica takes the knife from the doll, and as Chucky runs for her, a struggle ensue, and Nica ultimately stabs Chucky in the back.
After she thought she killed Chucky, Nica hears a knock on her door from a police officer. She screams for help, and the officer breaks through the door, only to find the dead bodies and Nica holding the knife. She is arrested for murder, but once again she blames the doll and is declared to be mentally unstable and is sent to a mental asylum.
Cult of Chucky (2017)
After four years of being condemned in a mental hospital, Nica is erroneously convinced that she was the one who murdered her family and not Chucky. Her "progress" in accepting her "crimes" allows her to be transferred to the Harrogate Medium Institute to gain alone time from usual mental patients. After arriving, she quickly befriends fellow patient, Malcolm, with whom she starts a sexual relationship.
Nica is included into a therapy group by her psychologist, Dr. Foley. Everyone except Malcolm believes Nica was the one who killed her family. Nica explains to the group that she killed her family because she was jealous of her older sister Barb and too possessive of her niece, Alice. Dr. Foley then includes a Good Guy doll into the session as a therapeutic tool, which Madeleine, a member of the group keeps after believing the doll to be her "baby". She is soon greeted by Alice's guardian, Tiffany, who informs her Alice has passed away and left behind for her a Good Guy doll. Nica is devastated by the news and gives the doll to Dr. Foley. Later that night, she attempts suicide. The next morning, Nica finds her wounds stitched up and a message saying "not so fast" written in a pool of her own blood.
It is discovered that Angela, a member of Nica's therapy group, was killed overnight in an apparent suicide. When Nica learns the surname of Alice's guardian was Valentine, she remembers in shock that Charles Lee Ray's girlfriend had the same surname and that Charles was killed in a toy store and died next to a Good Guy doll. Coincidentally, Charles' nickname is "Chucky", which is the doll's name and the name of the two Good Guy dolls at the institute; convincing Nica she was never at all crazy and that Chucky is in fact real and alive. Though most of the group didn't believed her, she sets out to prove that Chucky is real with the assistance of Malcolm, but after he fails to get Madeline's Chucky doll, she's given the impression that Chucky has possessed him. She soon learns Claire, another member of her therapy group has been murdered.
Dr. Foley is unnerved by Nica's "regression" about her belief in Chucky, so he decides to "bring her back" through the use of hypnosis. It is revealed that Foley had been sexually abusing Nica in their previous sessions while she was hypnotized. Foley is then knocked unconscious with a glass bottle to the head by Chucky. Believing Chucky may have been able to switch doll bodies, she tries to convince Madeline to give her doll to her, but she refuses, believing the doll to be her child. She then encounters Dr. Foley, who believes Nica assaulted him, and uses it to blackmail in exchange for sexual favors.
After Madeline's doll is buried outside the institute (as a way for her to cope with the fact that she had murdered her "child"), Nica watches from the window inside, waiting for it to reemerge, knowing the crisis has not yet ended. Hours later, her suspicions are correct, but as soon as it emerges from the grave, Nica is suddenly sedated by the other Chucky doll supposedly gifted to her by her deceased niece. Chucky then puts Nica in a straitjacket and moves her to Dr. Foley's office. Foley arrives later and finds her; though confused as to how she ended up in his office restrained, he decides to use it as another opportunity to sexually assault her again.
She tell him that Chucky will kill him, and she will tell everyone of his terrible deeds. Foley is unconcerned, as he's sure that no one would ever believe a supposed schizophrenic mass murderer. As Foley tries to kiss her, Nica spits in his face, causing him to jump back, and is suddenly knocked unconscious yet again by Chucky. To Nica's horror, she learns both of the dolls were alive, and watches as the damaged and buried Chucky brings yet another Good Guy doll (with shorter hair) to life. The leading Chucky reveals that a few years prior, the original Chucky had discovered a new voodoo spell in "VoodooForDummies.com" that allows him to possess multiple host bodies at once, including Alice, who he reveals to have been killed by one of his victims, much to Nica's dismay.
A nurse named Carlos then arrived, shocked to see the living Good Guys dolls. Nica screams for him to run, but he is brutally murdered by all three Chuckies. The short-haired Chucky goes to kill the recently-incarcerated Andy Barclay (who has supposedly came to the asylum to save Nica) while the damaged Chucky is sent to guard the door, leaving the leader Chucky with Nica. To her surprise and horror, Chucky reveals that he was never gonna kill Nica and that there are worse fates than death. Chucky then chants a voodoo ritual transferring his soul into Nica, which also gives her the ability to walk. In Nica's honor, Chucky kills Dr. Foley by stomping his skull in red heels which he had placed on Nica earlier.
She walks out and into another room with Malcolm, who claimed that he killed Nurse Ashley and is in one of his fake personalities. Chucky/Nica knows that the other Chucky killed Nurse Ashley and calls him out on it. Malcolm is then drilled through the head by the other Chucky doll. Chucky/Nica and the other Chucky laughed together. Then Chucky/Nica catches up with Andy in the psych ward, he tries to shoot her, but the gun ran out of ammunition, they talked for a bit. Suddenly, the hospital alarm goes off, Chucky/Nica locked Andy inside the holding room with the dead shaved Chucky inside. Chucky/Nica went outside and reunites with Tiffany. They kissed and got in the car. Tiffany shortly talked about how she missed Alice. They both laughed as the Tiffany doll laughed as well, which is revealed to be alive
