I find the place a little melancholy, what with the wind, and the darkness, and the sense of decline... I was hoping my music could go some way to livening up the place.
-Nymm
Dialogue Bottom

Nymm is an NPC in Hollow Knight. He gives the Carefree Melody charm.

Nymm is a bug who arrives in Dirtmouth after the Grimm Troupe is banished. He plays an accordion-like bug to bring cheer to the fading town, although he admits that even his song is a little on the sadder side.[1] Nymm is content to be in Dirtmouth beside the company of the Knight.[2]

He greatly resembles Brumm without his mask. Nymm has no memory of why he travelled to Dirtmouth, or where he came from.[3][4] He is not sure how he obtained Carefree Melody, but when he looks at its design it makes him think of something and somebody that he lost and forgot about.[5]

After the Grimm Troupe is banished from Hallownest, Nymm appears in Dirtmouth beside the bench. He gives the Knight the Carefree Melody charm when he is listened to.

Neither listening to Nymm nor wearing Carefree Melody will give the Banishment achievement, but rather the next time sitting on a bench.

Dialogue

First Encounter Ah. Hello! Hello! I'm new around these parts, so it's marvelous to see so friendly a face, in such a sad town.

The old bug over there was very welcoming, but still I find the place a little melancholy, what with the wind, and the darkness, and the sense of decline... I was hoping my music could go some way to livening up the place.
And now you've arrived with that wonderful, charming aura about you. The whole town feels brighter for it.
Before you hurry about your business, I've a small gift to commemorate a wonderful new friendship. No use for it myself, but I believe it'd look rather fancy upon you.
Please, enjoy it, and lets hope to see much more of one another about town.

Listening again My dear friend, are you enjoying my music? It's as upbeat a tune as I know, but I must admit, even it falls a little on the sadder side.

Please know I play it with joy. Being in this town, beside such good company as yourself, I feel remarkably, refreshingly content.

After opening Temple of the Black Egg Dear friend, I heard a violent scream from below. Even my song could not mask such a horrible shriek. Was it pain, or rage? I find I'm rather sensitive to such things.

If you're planning to head down, please do stay safe. I'd be dreadfully upset if I forever lost your company.

While wearing Carefree Melody Ahh. Just marvelous! I'm so glad you'd consider my gift worth wearing, and my, my, it does suit you well.

To be honest, I'm not even sure where I came upon it, but staring at its design, my memory stirs, something, and someone, forgotten, lost far away.
The specifics elude me, but a strange sense remains, fear, but also... longing? Like a strange nostalgia for something that never happened.
I've no need for it in any case, so I'm glad you're enjoying it.

Dream Nailed Hmm...Why did I choose to travel here? And how far must I have come... to forget the origin entirely.
