Schach Nouera (シャッハ・ヌエラ Shahha Nuera), also colloquially referred to as Sister Schach, is introduced since Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha StrikerS. She is a sister and a Church Knight of the Saint Church, and is also responsible as Carim Gracia's secretary and body guard.
Schach is named for the Mitsuoka Nouera. "Schach" also means "chess" in German.
Schach may be a reference to Axel Almer of Super Robot Wars. Axel first appeared in Super Robot Wars A as a "rival" to Lamia Loveless (on whom Signum is based) and like Schach he has red hair. The fighting style of Axel's mech, the Soulgain, is also similar to Schach's. In OG Saga: Endless Frontier EXCEED (released after StrikerS), Axel fights on foot with a tonfa-like weapon and gains the ability to use some wind-based attacks, in possible reference to Schach.
Sister Schach is a caring and responsible knight, serving and guarding important persons to her, such as Carim and Verossa Acous. She can also be very eager to attack her enemies, including Vivio when she thinks this mysterious girl may hurt Nanoha Takamachi.
Schach often appears with Signum, her sword art fellow.
Sister Schach has so far appeared briefly in a photograph in chapter 5 of Force.
