|~ Najenda to Tatsumi as she was recruiting him|
Najenda (ナジェンダ Najenda) is the head of the assassin group Night Raid. She was General of The Empire that defected, along with Lubbock, to the Revolutionary Army sometime after the end of expedition led by her and Esdeath to eliminate the opposition of the Ban Tribe.
Najenda is taciturn, sharp-minded and level-headed, she leads the group with a surprisingly gentle, but firm air. Her years of experience serving in the Empire as a general have made her a highly capable leader. Najenda is sometimes mistaken as a man due to her boyish appearance, even sometimes being nicknamed "The Hunk of the Rebellion" by her cohorts. She tends to have a habit of telling "cold jokes" and making bad puns.

She once demonstrated on Leone her ability to fire her prosthetic hand and reel it back in. She can even reel herself to the arm, quickly delivering a kick while doing it. She named this technique "Reel Assault".
She herself has commented that due to the injuries that Esdeath inflicted on her, she is only at 40% her original strength. This may have also rendered her unsuitable to handle her old Teigu, Pumpkin, which is now wielded by Mine. She is still however a capable fighter, being able to use her prosthetic hand to generate momentum for her kicks and punches that can rip a head off in one blow.
She was the master of the human Teigu, Susanoo, up until his demise. Until her arrival at HQ, Susanoo was in a state of dormancy, and began to react to her presence. Susanoo told the members of Night Raid that it was because Najenda resembled his previous master, who was a great general.
