Fans instantly recognize the name of the much-maligned character on General Hospital for good reason. Though she has only been a character on the show for seven years, she has made quite an impact during that time. Nina is the only biological child of Madeline Reeves and her late father, known by the name Mr. Reeves.
Her father spoiled her as a child and thus she became accustomed to getting her way and would be prone to violence and aggression when she didn’t get her way, even pushing her mother down the stairs on one occasion.

Nina has not been without her own share of grief though, overdosing and spending 23 years in a coma and even giving birth while in that coma.
