Nagi Arisuin, or Alice, came from an orphanage in Eurasia with her best friend Yuuri who soon died after both their government officials and mayor hired a gang to "clean up" their streets. She saved all the children from the orphanage after killing the gang, but all the kids soon became afraid of her. Nagi joined Rebellion under the teaching of Wallenstein after both killing the mayor and sending money to the orphanage.

Nagi became known as the Black Assassin and was later sent to Hagun Academy as a first-year for the upcoming 62nd Seven Stars Sword Art Festival as one of the students of Akatsuki. She became the roommate of Shizuku, then befriended her brother and Stella, causing her eventual betrayal.


Nagi has many effeminate features, like soft eyes, and very girlish lips. She has very long dark hair, that covers most of her forehead, and goes down all the way her ears.

She is usually seen wearing his Hagun academy school uniform as well. She also wears a religious cross, tied in with a necklace, around her neck.


Nagi is a very kind-hearted person who cares for her roommate Shizuku, constantly encouraging her and supporting her love towards her own older brother Ikki. She also seems to be very analytical, more so than she lets on, as she analyzed Ikki and told him that Ikki's strength and his pain tolerance were the same things, even stating that it will someday destroy him.

The kind-hearted person, however, was shown to be just a persona of hers, to trick the other students into believing that she was harmless when in actuality she is very cruel and doesn't even care about her supposed friend Shizuku, stating that she will still be done in.

Eventually, Nagi started to really care about Shizuku and the others as real friends, this would cause Nagi to betray Akatsuki and Rebellion.


Shadow Manipulation: Nagi's ability as a Blazer. She is able to manipulate the concept of "Shadows" letting her control surrounding shadows in the area ranging from her allies and enemies. As such, Nagi can also hide herself and her allies in shadows, as well as travel through them.

Master Assassin: As a former assassin of Rebellion, Nagi is a skilled assassin, being trained by Wallenstein himself. This gained her the nickname "Black Assassin". Nagi also possesses great skill in deceiving her targets, making them trust her, before stabbing them in the back.

Expert Combatant: Nagi is a skilled fighter, having defeated numerous opponents in the Hagun selection battles. Even as a child, Nagi was able to kill multiple adult men, ripping their bodies apart.
