- "I am the strongest mage ever."
- —Nagi Springfield
Nagi Springfield (ナギ・スプリングフィールド, Nagi Supuringufīrudo), also known as the Thousand Master, is a character from Negima!: Magister Negi Magi by Ken Akamatsu. He is the father of the Negi Springfield as well as the very reason Negi wants to be a successful mage.
The origin of his title is ambiguous; some bill him as the master of a thousand spells (which is patently untrue since he admits to being a dropout who only knows a handful of spells and needs to read out of pocket notes to cast other, albeit very powerful, spells).
Still, Nagi is so strong, in both magical and physical combat, that he does not even need any ministra magi to help him. His fighting style was that of a magic swordsman, using both speedy magic casting and hand-to-hand combat in tandem.
Despite what many people think, he never did graduate from a wizard school, even admitting that he is a dropout. When he was ten years old, he became the winner of essentially the last Legendary Mahora Martial Arts Tournament, twenty-five years before the current ones.
Great Mage WarEdit
- Main article: Great Mage War
Nagi and his friends fought in a magic war that ended years ago, when he was fifteen years of age. It is known that during or slightly before this time he put together the group Ala Rubra, the legendary grouping of his friends and allies, both mages and non-mages alike, that helped put a stop to the Great Mage War. Following the war, Nagi disappeared, and his whearabouts are unknown to all.
