"“Hello, hello! I am the demon lord Milim Nava. You look like the strongest hombre in town, so I wanted to come ’n’ say hi!” ".

Milim, to Rimuru

Milim Nava (ミリム・ナーヴァ mirimu nāva) is the second seat Demon Lord of the Octagram. She is one of the strongest and oldest among all other demon lords, known as the "Destroyer," a demon lord with the threat level of "Catastrophe." Milim is a carefree individual who just wants to do something to stave off her boredom.

Appearance

Normal Form

Although Milim is a Dragonoid, she looks like a regular human girl at the age of a teenager, making many people confuse her as a harmless existence at first. She has glossy pink hair tied in twin-tails. She usually wears black skimpy underwear.[1] After meeting Rimuru, she also regularly wore the Dragon Knuckles that was gifted to her.[2]

Battle Mode

In this form, Milim actually looks more like the Dragonoid that she is, having a crimson horn adorning her forehead and jet black armor cladding her body. She also sprouts wings.[3]

Personality

At first glance, Milim is the most short-tempered and childish Demon Lord and what the rest would consider common sense is completely lost on her. Calling her a kid or treating her like a weakling will arouse her anger or even cause her to respond with violence. However, this is just a facade and when she is serious and stops playing around, then knowing her supposed personality might even be detrimental as she can catch anyone, who believes in that facade, off-guard, as she can, infact, completely control her emotions when she intends to and can also maintain a perfect poker face, unless someone or something dear to her, like her Pet Dragon, is taken from her and killed, at which point calming her anger is not something that can be accomplished without any cost.

Milim didn't have anyone she considered a true friend before she met Rimuru. She was merely looking for anything that could stimulate her and relieve her of her boredom, treating most of those weaker than her as mere toys. However, after she met Rimuru she was shown many facets of entertainment that Rimuru City offered and her violent temper mellowed a lot as a result. She considers Rimuru as her only "True Friend" and her "Bestie."

Background

She is the child of the True dragon Veldanava and Lucia. Milim grew up without ever seeing her parents' faces with her pet dragon as her only friend, which Veldanava created with the intention of being a potential vessel for his reincarnation, which never came true, as the pet dragon was killed by a nation that was targeting Milim. In her anger, Milim destroyed the country and awakened as the second True Demon Lord. Furthermore, her overwhelming fury caused her to lose all sense of reason and consciousness, prompting Guy Crimson to fight her in an attempt to stop her rampage. That battle continued for seven days and seven nights, transforming the fertile lands of the west into a barren wasteland. Eventually Ramiris, the Queen of Spirits, interfered in the battle to help calm Milim down. In the process, Ramiris was forced to absorb the magicules and aura of Guy and Milim and required to regularly reincarnate and spend time as a childish Fairy. But, through her sacrifice, she was able to stop Milim's rampage. The three later became good friends and would regularly meet up and talk. These meetings would later become the basis for the Walpurgis Banquet.

Story

She befriends Rimuru and decides to live in Tempest, though she chooses not to interfere with other demon lords' actions.

Relationships

Rimuru Tempest

Guy Crimson

One of the only people capable of fighting Milim seriously and forcing a draw, as shown when he initially tried stopping Milim's rampage.

Frey

Her subordinate and a former Demon Lord, Frey is now a mother-like figure for Milim as she is always carefree and doesn't do her duties like maintaining her domain.

Carrion

Her friend as a Demon Lord. Milim and Ramiris grew closer as both of them love to play in the labyrinth in Tempest.

Her friend, they grew closer as they usually play in the Tempest Labyrinth's together.

Trivia

  • Milim is the only Dragonoid known to exist in the entire series.
  • The name "Milim" is an ancient Dalriadan-Scottish nickname for a bald person; the name may refer to a member of a religious order. The Gaelic forms of the name are Mac Mhaolain or Mac Ghille Mhaoil, both of which mean son of the bald or tonsured one.
