Nanashi is a former Lambda class Chaos Engine that was formerly a human with the exceedingly rare ability to to create sigils and draw objects into creation.
Nanashi was born in an unknown time period on Earth, possibly the future do to technological advances. He claims to have been the eldest child of his family and recalls that one of his brothers wanted to be a doctor before an accident...
With his memory fully restored, Nanashi remembers that incident that killed many in his family was perpetrated by one of his younger sisters under the influence of a manipulative figure. He remembers encountering said figure before being pushed down a flight of stairs and seeing the ceiling collapse upon him, but rather than dying he woke up in a blank area. He could not tell how much time had passed while he was in the featureless space, but he eventually came across a sword, old and tarnished. Curiosity overtaking him, Angelius pulled the sword from its resting place, unknowingly binding himself to it before it too vanished. As he continued to walk, he heard a voice, a voice telling him that him then self was but fleeting image in the reflection of his true self, but when he asked for elaboration he was instead presented with the image of a white haired being standing over a wasteland, having cast judgment down on the world. Confused he asked for more information, but the voice would never answer his questions, only state more and more cryptic phrases until he eventually found himself in the present, questions left unanswered.
While in the present, Nanashi made a living with his drawing skills and lived a quiet life. He began to adopt children in order to make their lives easier, something he worked towards diligently. It took him five years to notice that he had stopped externally aging.
Time went by and he let this knowledge seep in as he continued to care for his children. As more and more of them grew up and left his home, he grew more secluded and eventually disappeared from the public eye, only appearing at auctions and occasionally delivering remedies for the townspeople, something he had taken to doing at night to prevent people from growing suspicious of his "true nature". Eventually, this became harder as well, but before anything could be done, the invasion began.
Nanashi doesn't like discussing what happened during the invasion, but he sees it as one of his greatest failures.
The journey in which Nanashi learns the truth of himself on one level. His experiences after becoming a Chaos Engine briefly allowed him to realize that his purpose in the world was different, but in being different it required him to have much more strength and resolve than he did before. Thus he took to training himself until one day he chanced upon the First Sage, a man who knew of his true nature and taught him more of the path of sagacity then directed him to teach the path of sagacity to others to further his own understanding. To do this, Angelius chose to activate the Hanging Gardens and create a haven for those who wanted to learn while also keeping them safe. Little did he know that fate was transpiring against him.
Nanashi is rather quiet as of late, thinking more than speaking. He prefers solitude, but doesn't mind company so long as his company does not attempt to attack him. On that note, Nanashi strikes those identified as enemies down without hesitation should he not detect any form of sound or justifiable reason for their actions. Similarly, he will not harm those who do not deserve it, even if they attempt to cause him serious harm, opting to incapacitate them without touching a hair of their heads. He has become harder to read and harder to gauge, making him an enigma to many.
Nanashi dislikes White, but does not hate her. Having been freed from her control early on, he has made his opinion known very well. Tat being said he saw her as a benefactor of sorts before his departure and chose to provide some support. After undergoing his journey, Nanashi instead sees her in a more neutral light.
Nanashi wishes his younger brother would finally be true to himself as opposed to locking himself away behind a wall of masks. That being said he knows well why his brother does as he does, having read his memories when they fought.
Nanashi truly loves Abeni, but cannot express that to her, having been tasked to teach his artes to those far outside of her reach and having come to the conclusion that he isn't meant for happiness. Yet he still wishes that someday they'll be able to meet again.
Nanashi has snow white hair and teal eyes. He wears a silver robe with black lining over a silken shirt and jet black pants that taper at the knees. Silver clawed gauntlets adorn his arms and silver greaves with wing motifs adorn his legs. He carries his Azure Calibur across his waist now and wears strange gold bangles of no recognizable origin. He looks around twenty-two now and has a well toned figure as opposed to a nigh androgynous one, but is liable to shift every so often to an ethereal shorter form. Whether or not he has wings or Endless Scales can no longer be seen.
Nanashi has awakened the ability to interact with souls on even the smallest of scales. This long replaced his ability to create fear in the hearts of many by simply appearing and now off sets his entire being in the perspective of others. On a tiny scale, it can manipulate the actions of others due to subtle attacks on the will and gentle persuasion. At full power, the ability rivals conceptual skills. Additionally, this ability allows him to modify and repair his own soul, making it effectively immortal, but vulnerable if left without a host. Abilities that attack the soul will now backfire when used against him.
Knowledge Consumption Edit
Nanashi can subsist off of knowledge or information rather than food. Due to the way he processes information, overloading his brain is impossible, no matter how much stimuli he receives.
Etheric Knowledge Edit
Nanashi is a holder of a private Ether Network, one that has been nurtured to the point of evolving into an Etheric Compendium, a rare evolutionary route that acts like a spell book of sorts in the way that it categorizes information and allows access to said information. Oddly combat oriented.
E.O.S. Compendium: Yggdra Edit
Nanashi is in tune with the elements to the extent that they move at his behest. Rather than using this offensively or defensively, however, he uses this to further his understanding of the elements.
Nanashi is a master of all things mechanical, to the point of being able to create, deconstruct or modify any form of machinery that he makes contact with, foreign and non.
Ether Manipulation Edit
Nanashi has mastered the first form of Ether and has access to its seconds and final stages, now capable of utilizing the full potential of each. He has an unlimited amount of Ether and can create more at will, but relies more on other abilities more often than not.
Spacial Manipulation Edit
Nanashi has master manipulating space to the point where doing so is second nature. This manifests in the form of his ability to interact with the Fourth Dimension.
Sigil Authority Edit
Nanashi is one of the very few beings to have full authority over Sigils, though he'd never state how he got the ability. For the most part, this ability is toyed around with, making minor adjustments to things or enchanting them, but can easily shift a battle's tides should he use any of the custom Sigils he created or even the most ancient of Sigils.
Nanashi formerly had divinity due to the angelic portion of his composition, but after his continued evolution, he gained natural divinity similar to a lesser God of Warding and sacred beast. This manifests in graceful movements and a calming aura in general, but also protects him from harm from beings that cannot level entire mountain ranges with simple actions passively. Actively using divinity grants him the status <Immortal Object - Bound>, preventing him from being harmed so long as he has energy reserves above a certain level but also prevents him from attacking directly.
4th-D Slip Edit
Allows Nanashi to phase through and evade nearly any attack thrown at him. It also allows him to rapidly cover distance by slipping in and out of the Fourth Dimension. Any attacks made from the Fourth Dimension will phase through the target unless they enter the current dimension at the last second.
4D Cut Edit
A compressed plane of 4D able to be released as a wave capable of "cutting" through objects intersected by it. In actuality, it bisects the space that they are inhabiting and, by expanding slightly, splits them on a mono-molecular level. Dangerous due to complete invisibility. Has since been modified into a sword technique that acts similar to a certain being's power...
4D Fold Edit
Allows Nanashi to fold a portion of the 4D Space up to eight times, initially returning attacks, but eventually draining all energy from them. Each fold make the area around him "colder," a sign that energy is being drained, and eventually halts time itself in theory as the energy, if any, devoted to keeping it flowing is drained as well.
Allows Nanashi to "teleport" himself, others, objects, etc. around by rapidly shifting and distorting regular space and Fourth Dimensional space bubbles within a "fixed" area. Used more so to disorient others and remove advantages based on location or position. Coat related technique. Boosts and modifies effects of 4D Deal when used before it.
Allows Nanashi to nullify attacks by absorbing and storing them in 4D space, then release them at a later time. It should be noted that this applies to all types of attacks and not just projectiles, regardless of size. Can store twelve attacks before having to release them. If used after 4D Shuffle, the stored attacks gain several additional properties, the first being massively increased velocity and the second being a "bending" effect, but the others remain unknown. A technique modified for gauntlets and coats or cloaks.
Nanashi's signature skill, developed long before he became a Lambda. Essentially, it allows him to bring art works to life, whether they be pictures, sculptures, paintings, etc. On a more complex side, it allows him to directly modify the space around him with simple actions, to the point of completely rewriting the naturally given properties. The basic principle for the Mundus Code.
Sealed: Mundus Code Edit
The true form of Thema. Allows Nanashi to directly modify the space around him and with better precision than Thema. Can bring about the impossible and temporarily disrupt the Breaker and Killer-type Conceptual Abilities. Only Accessible in Arhat Mode or beyond.
Born from the speed of thought, perception and movement synchronized and layered, Nanashi has gained access to modified version of the Speed Gate that allows him to act and think as fast as he can process thoughts and actions based on internal speed records.
Nanashi's standard speed, capable of breaching the sound barrier in quick instances. Denoted by Flash Strikes.
- Flash Strike- A supersonic attack that mimics the iaido style of swordsmanship in appearance alone. Capable of delayed reaction and delayed activation attacks.

Nanashi's second high speed mode, akin to a brisk jog to him. Allows for ultrasonic movements and the traversal of all surfaces, solid and not. Denoted by blue and green lightning.
Restriction: Ultra SpeedEdit
Nanashi's first true speed mode, akin to slow run to him. Allows for movements similar to Blinking, Teleportation and Afterimage Strikes at the least. Nanashi's form becomes similar an iridescent energy being flickering like flames at the edges. This is the first step into the Realm of Speed, rendering notions of fast and slow irrelevant to him. All movements leave destruction in their wake, making getting close deadly.
Greater Restriction: Unlimited SpeedEdit
The Second Step into the Realm of Speed, akin to a casual stroll from his distorted perception of time. Thought and movement become one and everything slows to a crawl around him. Movements that break the fabric of space time are the same as taking a step, the aftermath visible long before anyone can react.
Ultimate Restriction: ????Edit
World Coding Edit
Nanashi can literally program the elements, nature, space and time to do certain things to an extent. This can easily change a battlefield from a simple plain into a hellish nightmare or a frozen wasteland.
- Applies to his Monjū with a much greater effect.
Restriction: Singularity Laser Edit
Nanashi can program his bits to fire a swarm of lasers that coalesce into an artificial black hole that he can manipulate as he wishes.

- Allows multiple MSLs to be active at once and allows the creation of an End-point Singularity.
Restriction: Final Bit Formation Edit
Nanashi is able to release the final form of his Bits, allowing for even greater destructive and special capabilities to be unleashed. These Bits react nigh instantly and follow no distinct patterns.
- Allows for the destruction of immortals and the sealing of lesser deities and the usage of the Anti-Matter Disruptor Lasers.
Restriction: Infinity Bit Formation -Telos Version- Edit
Nanashi is able to release the true form of his Bits, maximizing his standard destructive power and allowing him to utilize more treacherous attacks with his Bits. These Bits act as fast as Nanashi can think, often times setting up several attack layers in the span of a second.

Greater distance increases power exponentially. Close Range Version: Burst Flash Punch
- Burst Flash Punch: A Flash Strike with a Fist type weapon. Faster than a bullet, with the power of a bullet train.
A Binding Technique that uses physical, spiritual, psychological and mental blockades to cease all functions of the target(s) by encasing them in Etherite Bark and Seithr.
Azure Calibur "Hoarfrost"Edit
A weapon both cursed and sealed. It takes the form of a black sword with a blue blade, but isn't a sword per se. Its true form has yet to be seen, but even in its sealed state it rivals the power of Caladbolg in its partially sealed state. The curse upon the weapon prevents multiple wielders of it, anyone who attempts to do so while its master still lives will be torn apart by the weapon. Currently in the hands of Solais.
Water God's FangEdit
A pristine fang from a serpent with the power of a great deity. Gifted to Nanashi as a replacement for the Azure Calibur.
A bizarre bangle with no known abilities or origin. Rather dull in terms of appearance.
Siegmund and SiegfriedEdit
A broadsword and longsword pair gifted to Nanashi by the first Sage. The first is surrounded by an aura akin to floating crystals while the second holds an aura akin to gold dust. Their abilities have yet to be seen.
Dynamic Bit-Class ArmamentsEdit
Mechanical constructs formed the moment Nanashi awoke. They take the form of floating sword shaped devices and have a variety of functions, ranging from offensive lasers to defensive shielding to hacking. They are a rather versatile armament, having the second most uses after his Monjū.
Ornate spheres manifested as an advanced form of his Custom Art Magick System: Thema. He can summon up to twelve Monjû at a time and can imbue them with various commands to carry out in a variety of ways. Common commands are Draw(Pull), Return(Push), Erase(Destroy), Stipple(Focus), Detail(Empower) and Clear(Protect), but far more can be used.
