"Devola and Popola Twin sisters who live in the protagonist's village. They are close confidants of the protagonist and his sister. Popola is the head librarian of the village library and is reserved and calm. She speaks politely and is kind, but she has a strong sense of self. Her sister, Devola, is very animated and loves to sing; she can often be found near the fountain in the village, singing." --Square Enix official description
While her sister is usually found in the library, Devola can be found singing at the Village Tavern or the main square fountain. She also helps with looking for jobs for NieR to do and offers him any available Side Quests when spoken to.
- In one of the endings, Devola & Popola reveal that they are both actually androids working for project Gestalt. and the rest of them are all replicants, merely shells of human beings and that Shades live on as the remnants of what were human beings, and real human beings have ceased to exist
- They live eternally for the sole purpose of controlling others, and that is the only reason they exist.
- They turn to enemies of NieR because the original human NieR wants his shell back

- Devola: " There's this terrible black book that shows up and starts spreading disease all over the place, but then this white book appears and saves the world and everyone's happy. You know how it goes "
- NieR: " Tell me about this black book. Where is it from? How does it work? "
Devola: " What? ... It's just a song. I don't know what it means. "
NieR: " What kind of idiot sings a song without knowing what it means?!"
Devola: " This kind of idiot?... Look, why don't you go to the library and ask Popola? She's smarter than me. Maybe she knows.
Devola to Popola
- "You know, I understand now why we're twins. It's because....because we were born without souls. This world is too lonely for one without a soul. There's too much...emptiness. Our souls are missing, but our tears still work. That's kinda weird. Sorry, Sis. ...I love you."
