A mysterious and fairly unemotional woman Nakiami makes her first entrance when she jumps in and subdues the enraged Xamd turning him to stone and demanding that he come with her and live or die. Akiyuki accepts and she knocks him and Haru out with a few small movements. She then takes Akiyuki back to the ship with her and starts operating on Akiyuki and working with his condition. Nakiami is a fairly serious and skilled person who bears similar face marks to other mysterious characters related to the Xamd and seems to have a lot of knowledge and expertise about it. She is a member of Benikawas crew and flies a small jetlike vehicle. It has been noted that her character design and vehicle both share large resemblances to Nausicaa and it may have been an inspiration for her character.
