Nagadan is the most powerful nation on Komashi, established by the descendants of nomads on the outskirts of Torio in the centuries that followed the activation of the father machine.[1]


The people of Nagadan look similar to the Veden people, with similar features and the same dark hair, though they have paler skin than an ordinary Veden.[2] The "similar features" mentioned likely refer to the presence of epicanthic folds.[3]

Beards are rarely seen amongst their people, though it is unclear if this is purely cultural or has a genetic component.[4]

They are descended from nomads that lived at the edge of Torio.
