Age Unknown

Nimzo (formerly Mirudraas, Mildrath and Grandmaster Nimzo) is the antagonist in V. As is the case with most of the series' villains, Nimzo is mostly referred to and not actually encountered until the end of the game, though his pawns and powerful influence do well to wreak havoc in his place. According to his Dragon Quest IX description, he posseses enough physical and mental ability to rule the world by himself.


Nimzo initially appears to be an elderly, green-skinned demon, though this is merely a ruse to hide his true, grotesque form: a bloated, red demon with spearlike fangs, massive and wrinkled wings, four arms, and a spike-ended tail.

  • Nimzo, in his non-monster form, bears a strong resemblance to Kami-Sama from Dragon Ball Z. It should be noted that Akira Toriyama designed both.
  • According to the people of Lofty Peak and a person where you fight Bjorn, he is a former Loftinian who grew arrogant from his raw intelligence and power.
  • He mistakes the Hero to be the Legendary Hero; even if the Hero doesn't bring any of his family, Nimzo will say the same speech and accuse the Hero of being the Legendary Hero. This may be a translation error, or Nimzo could just be genuinely confused by the fact that the Hero was able to destroy his plans and outsmart him.
  • The name, Nimzo, is a reference to the chessmaster, Aron Nimzowitsch.
  • He is the only character given a different script (faux Cyrillic) for his dialogue than all others in the same game. If this were read in a language that uses Cyrillic letter (e.g. Russian), it would be unintelligible.
