Nisha, also known as The Sheriff of Lynchwood is an optional boss in Borderlands 2, encountered during the mission Showdown. She is also one of the playable characters of Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel!


The Sheriff is the significant other of Handsome Jack. She was involved in the fall of New Haven and was the one who captured and imprisoned Brick, after killing his beloved puppy. She is given free reign over a large tract of the planet Pandora, and governs Lynchwood with an iron fist, with each of her more than 200 laws punishable by death. After the Vault Hunters arrive and start disrupting her control, she challenges them to a showdown.

Main article: Showdown


  • "Howdy, partner."
  • "A few of you have learned that Handsome Jack is my boyfriend. If you think I'm just a pretty face who got this town as an anniversary gift, you know where to find me."
  • "You Vault hunters think you're different from bandits, but you're not."
  • "Explosives, huh? That ought to be fun."
  • "Nice robbery, I think you deserve my best. Boys, get after 'em!"
  • "Brick always did have a flair for the dramatic; blew my jail sky-high, swore revenge on what Jack and I had done to him, said we had turned him into a bandit the moment we killed his dog. With you, I think it's going to be much simpler: either I die or you do. Nice and clean."
  • "You got me to thank that you're living in a town called Lynchwood. You know what Jack wanted to call this place? New New Haven. I love the guy, but he doesn't exactly have a way with words."
  • "I hear there's a new bandit in town. If you're hearing this, kiddo, don't die right away - I've always wanted to duel a Vault hunter."
