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]


Nagadan is less than fifty Rosharan miles across, and only a few miles away from where Torio was.[2] The nation includes a few different cities as well as some smaller towns,[3] connected by hion lines that open paths in the Shroud.[4] At least some of the cities border oceans.[5]


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.[4] The "similar features" mentioned likely refer to the presence of epicanthic folds.[6]

Beards are rarely seen amongst their people, though it is unclear if this is purely cultural or has a genetic component.[7]

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