History

Personal Life

Nagomi Nava grew up in Hellmouth, alongside future teammates Emmett Internet and Zack Sanders. Her parents moved to the area just before she was born. Nava received training from her "grandmother"[1] Grandma Nava, and later received psychopomp training from Velasquez Meadows.

At some point in Nava's life, an entity took residence in the left side of her face. This entity has come to be known as The Passenger, Friend, or The Entity That Lives In The Left Side of Nagomi Nava's Face. Nava has stated that the entity "is actually pretty chill" and "yeah, its a really good friend of mine".

During her blaseball career, Nava took to wearing a black ring around her right middle finger. There are multiple accounts of teammate Randall Marijuana stating "It's a cool ring, looks pretty ace," to which Nava responds with ""Yeah, that's the point." One journalist reported hearing this exchange on 5 separate occasions.

Margarito Nava, a player for the Boston Flowers, is her "cousin". At least, that's what Nagomi Nava often announces, especially as she gets up to bat against the Flowers. The Hellmouth Tribune has Nagomi Nava on record shouting: "There is my cousin, Margarito! Xe sure is my cousin, my regular old human person cousin. Related in the normal human cousin way!", while pointing at Margarito in the field with her bat. When a reporter from the Hellmouth Tribune asked if she knew what a cousin was, Nagomi Nava simply stated "what are you, a cop?" and walked away.

Though Nava plays in the bristling heat of the Hellmouth, she is never seen breaking a sweat. Due to her calm demeanor—uncommon there—her teammates often regard her as the voice of reason on the team. Nagomi is known to spend her free time caring for the cats of the Randall Marijuana Memorial Cat Café, which routinely features music from her own Hellmouth Lo-Fi Radio label. Those nearby swear she smells like bayberries, despite not even the Hellmouth Beautification Society having managed to grow them in the Hellmouth.

Gameplay Style

Nagomi Nava has been with the Hellmouth Sunbeams since the beginning of Season 1, and has quickly made a name for herself thanks to her uncanny improvement over the seasons, and a fan-favorite "all-or-nothing" approach to batting. Nava has a delicate swing that appears to barely cut through smoke; that is, however, just an illusion, as her swings are known to send even the most unlikely of pitches flying straight out of the park at terrifying speeds—if she swings.

Her slender frame gives her a smaller-than-normal strike zone that presents a challenge to many pitchers. However, those who have been in close proximity to Nava attest to an unusual phenomenon: Nava's striking personage gives one the intuitive sense of significant events to come, but the warmth of spirit usually found in plenty among Sunbeams players is not just absent, but repulsed. As a result, Nava may sometimes redirect even the most precise throws of skilled pitchers outside her strike zone and walk to first. Nava has also been known to walk directly to second or third base. When asked about this seeming rule break, Umpires have been to known to look around nervously, attempt to incinerate Nava, and walk away.

In Season 10, Nava gained the Fire Eater modification. She was the first player in the League to eat the flames of a rogue umpire's incineration attempt, and used its powers to become Magmatic and score a home run. To celebrate, her "cousin" Margarito Nava gave her a low-quality souvenir volcano hat. Nagomi Nava treasures this gift as a sign of increasingly cousinlike relations, and has been seen occasionally wearing it to the field. When asked, Nava has stated "it is a very kind and thoughtful gift from my good human cousin, Margarito Nava," and "What? Why would I cut off the price tag? That would be incredibly disrespectful to the hat." Some fans have claimed to see smoke rising from the hat's caldera, but investigators have been unable to confirm this rumor.

Discipline Era

Following the Season 3 Day 23 incineration of Velasquez Meadows, Nava fully took over the role of local psychopomp. With help from Sandoval Crossing, Nava has successfully led the dead residents of Hellmouth to their post-mortem destination.

Following the Season 4 election, Nagomi Nava, Emmett Internet, and Randall Marijuana received the precognition Blessing. At this point, the three players foresaw the events of Season 10 Day X, and predicted that two of them would be required to die in order to facilitate the death of The Shelled One. The three decided that Marijuana and Internet would sacrifice themselves.

Emmett Internet was incinerated on Season 5 Day 91. Randall Marijuana feedbacked to the Breckenridge Jazz Hands on Season 6 Day 44 and was incinerated 40 days later on Season 6 Day 84.

Following the death of Marijuana and the trade of Alaynabella Hollywood, Nava took over care of the Randall Marijuana Memorial Cat Café. The cats help Nava with her psychopomp duties.
