Biography[]

Early Life[]

Personality[]

Having been born into the noble family, Nadiya can seem arrogant and vain. This can be seen when she denies (*&*)'s act of friendship while proclaiming that she has not given him permission to talk to her. This also causes her to have difficulty admitting her failures, as she often tries to find excuses or blames her mistakes on somebody else. After finally coming out of her difficulties in admitting her mistakes, Nadiya can also be seen as very reserved on expressing her delight over her achievements where she would rather suppress those feelings and shows her usual stern expression. She has a supposedly high sense of taste for items, as can be seen when she says that (*&*)'s broom is lame.

However, due to having been rejected by her own family who had noticed her lack of control over her power, Nadiya developed a slight inferiority complex to her more accomplished brothers and sister. This inferiority complex caused her to try and prove them wrong to the point where she will overexert herself during training. Additionally, she is skeptical of the people around her since she expects them to react the same way that her family did.

Because of the Division Twelve's influence, notably Mars, Nadiya slowly begins to have more confidence in herself. This gives birth to a more courageous side where she is even willing to go against opponents like (*&*) and her own brother, Nox.

(*&*) points out a reason that Nadiya lacked magic control comes from her desire to not hurt anyone. This reveals that despite Nadiya's shortcomings, she is a kind person which sets her apart from most nobles. Another aspect that sets her apart from other Lysian nobles is how she's less prejudiced towards commoners. This confidence, courage, and kindness shapes Nadiya a strong resolve to protect those she cares for, which creates a more selfless side to her personality. While her personality improves, her nobility and pride causes her to not always be honest with herself.
