"When you have to save someone, they're usually in a scary situation. A true hero saves not only their lives, but also their spirits... That's what I believe. So no matter how scary things get, give 'em a smile, as if to say, "I'm a-ok". The people in this world who can smile are always the strongest."
Nana was a woman with dark, straight hair that hung just below her shoulders and that she kept styled in a partial bun with the rest of her hair down, along with two strands framing her face. Nana has a mole below her right cheek, similar to her grandson.
Nana was well built, as befitting a One For All user. Her Hero costume consisted of a dark sleeveless bodysuit with a high collar, light-colored gloves, a belt with an angular buckle, and a light colored cape.
Nana was a kind woman with a strong sense of justice. She believed that a true hero should smile no matter how grim the situation, since people who needed to be saved needed not only to have their lives protected but also their hearts.
At some point during her life, Nana was chosen to inherit One For All from the sixth user and later entrusted the Quirk to Toshinori. At one point, Nana married and had a son. Afterwards, Nana's husband died as a result of heroics. To spare her son from the same fate, Nana left her son in the care of a foster family and told Gran Torino and Toshinori to never come into contact with her son. Eventually, Nana was killed by All For One some time after passing along the ability and left Toshinori's training to her friend, Gran Torino.
