In the manga Nagi is initially Nina's master and appears to be just as malevolent as his anime counterpart, having destroyed several countries for the misbehavior of one or two representatives. He also treats Otome, including Nina, with contempt that prompts a violent reaction out of Mashiro's male impostor, whom he is initially engaged to. However, he shows a kinder side and sacrifices himself to save Mashiro from Mikoto and urges Nina to fight with Mashiro. He claims, at the time of his death, that he had truly fallen in love with the male Mashiro - the revelation of his gender did not change this. Nagi also has a younger sister, Arashi Daí Artai, whose goals are similar to those of her older brother, and stars in a spin off manga of her own.
