Nana Bassler (ナナ=バスーラ Nana Basūra) is a character introduced in Plunderer. She is an owner of a mobile tavern, and one of the 7 Legendary Red Barons, known as the "Insight Baron" (識撃の撃墜王 Shikigeki no Gekitsui-ō, Yen Press: Ace of Conscious Strikes, Funimation: Ace of Knowing).
Nana has purple eyes, silver hair and tan skin. As a child, Nana wore her hair in braids and used a bunny and turtle band to tie her hair. The turtle and bunny tie might have something to do with Schmelman's stories as this was one of the recurring stories he told, or it may have something to do with Licht's ability. She liked cute things, which was evident in her room. Nana decorated her room with stuffed animals and dolls of her future comrades.
As she grew older, her tastes in attire matured as well. She now has shorter hair, and wears revealing clothing. She wears a gold bangles at her neck, wrists and ankles. Her shirt is a simple white button down that she leaves open to expose a black strapless bra. A black belt with a gold buckle accentuates her hips before descending into an open skirt that has a slit over one leg. Under one of her knees is a simple black cuff and she boosts her height a bit with black, Mary-Jane style kitten heels. Stuffed into her belt is a pair of shackles to dangle at her hips.
The count 77 can be seen on her left breast, which is fake, as she has the original one on her left cheek, under her eye. In her original count's absence, a beauty mark is more prominent than before.
Nana is kind, but it is not her defining trait. She is visibly stern and unafraid of holding her own via carrying herself with respect and dignity. She is more well rounded than those around her, making her to appear seemingly ordinary and more relatable.
Her class and knowledgeable attitude is more than what a mobile bar owner leads onto be.

Abilities and PowerEdit
300 years ago, Nana's count is 56. Her current count is 2 because she used her ability to send Hina, Pele, Lyne, and Jail back to the past. Nana's count supposedly stands for the number of customers who have said her food is delicious; however, this was stated prior to her true number being revealed and is not confirmed to be true or not.
- Conscious Strike (識撃 Shikigeki): Upon being given the incomplete Baron Surgery as a child and surviving, Nana successfully obtained her own unique supernatural power as a result. However due to her operation only being experimental and incomplete, Nana was noted to not possess the same combat prowess the other Red Barons obtained after their own surgeries and her own ability having the severe limitation of her losing her Count whenever she uses certain powers.
- Time Travel: After going through her psuedo Baron Operation, Nana was noted to have successfully obtained the ability to send either herself or others through time, as seen where she sent Jail, Hina, Pele and Lyne 300 years ago prior to the Abandonment War and again retrieve them and transport them back to the present with little effort. However a major drawback to this power is the fact that every time Nana uses this particular power her count decreases, making multiple trips through the past or future impossible due to her steadily decreasing count.
- Future Vision: The second ability and main ability primarily used by Nana that garnered her title as the "Insight Baron". Unlike her power to Travel through Time, its been shown that Nana can make free use of this particular ability without losing her count, as seen during her childhood where Nana made several incredibly accurate predictions of future events and predict every single detail of what might occur down to particular seconds and minutes of that event, as seen during her first meeting with Jail as a Child. Eventually Nana's ability of "Insight" gave her a position of something akin to a military adviser and her ability to see into future events made her a vital resource during the Abandonment War. Nana has also displayed that she can also have prophetic dreams of future events when she sleeps, as seen where she saw repeated visions of Douan Taketora's attack on Licht and their group.
- Bloodlust: As the Red Baron, Nana is presumed to possess the ability to increase her count by activating Schmelman's bloodlust genes. However, it's not known if Nana really can activate her bloodlust genes like other Barons, as her Baron surgery was done in an incomplete state.
- Nana was the first Legendary Red Baron to be created using an incomplete surgery. Due to this Nana was considered the "prototype" for the other six.
- She can hold her liquor more than her comrades.
- Nana has a love interest for Licht, as shown during Jail and the others watching her videos in the computer room.
