- "I am Narberal Gamma, one of the battle maids, who swore loyalty to the overlord of the Great Tomb of Nazarick, the supreme being Ainz Ooal Gown. You lower life forms should be honored to battle with me."
- — Narberal's introduction to Khajiit
Narberal Gamma (ナーベラル・ガンマ, Narberal・Γ) is a doppelgänger battle maid and a member of the "Pleiades Six Stars," the battle maid squad of the Great Tomb of Nazarick. She was created by Nishikienrai, one of the original nine founders of Ainz Ooal Gown.
Narberal Gamma is described as an elegant, snow-white skinned, black-pony tailed beauty. People believe her beauty is comparable to that of the Golden Princess.
She wears a white bonnet in place of a helmet, and black armor decorated in gold and silver in the likeness of a maid uniform. As a battle mage, her weapon of choice is a golden staff plated in silver. In her adventurer persona, she wears a plain brown cloak.
Narberal's human form is gained through her Doppelgänger's transformation skill. However, due to her low-racial level, she can only transform into one form. Her original appearance as a Doppelgänger is similar to Pandora's Actor.
Like many others in Nazarick, Narberal views humans as nothing more than low-class creatures. The only human exempt from Narberal's contempt is Aureole Omega. Though she dislikes the thought of killing humans, she will not hesitate to do so if there is no reason to let them live, or unless given an order by Ainz. This makes Narberal one of the two, along with Solution Epsilon, "extremely dangerous" members of the Pleiades.
As a created NPC of Nazarick, she is extremely loyal to Ainz and proud of her quest to support him close by. Nevertheless, she seems unable to understand Ainz's purpose to become a hero and does not hide her aggressive attitude towards humans. At times, she will often refer to Ainz with a "-sama" honorific, even when the two masquerade as adventurers and he orders her not to.
According to Lupusregina Beta, when Narberal is outside Nazarick working on the job as the adventurer Nabe, she can't bear the thought of letting Ainz be looked upon by those around him in a rude manner. When seeing something like that unfold before her eyes, Narberal ponders whether or not she should immediately kill anyone who acts rude to Ainz before asking for his permission. Lupusregina notes that Narberal has to always keep herself focus at all times whenever she is with Ainz in order to stay on alert for if the enemy were to make a move on him.
Whenever she is on a break and resting in Nazarick, Narberal is apparently known to space out, looking at a certain direction where nothing is said to be present in her peripheral vision.
Narberal Gamma was created by Nishikienrai to be one of the battle maids, the Pleiades. They served as a last line of defense against intruders. However, because she is unlikely to be able to stand against enemy players who managed to come this far, her only real purpose was to distract the invaders until the guild members of Ainz Ooal Gown were able to fully prepare for their final stand in the throne room.

The Witch of the Falling Kingdom Arc
- Main article: The Witch of the Falling Kingdom Arc
While in the main streets of E-Rantel, Narberal is shown to have been tailing after Ainz and Momon from behind. This act serves multiple purposes, the most important of all was to validate the fact that Ainz is still working together with Momon and Nabe. After Entoma contacts Ainz to return to Nazarick, she is ordered to bring the rest of the maids back to Nazarick too.
- In her adventurer persona, she is given the nickname "The Beautiful Princess" because of her appearance. Several people have proposed to her, though most people think that she is either a lover or servant of Momon.
- In the Web Novel, Narberal uses the Ring of Freedom, illusion magic to become the adventurer named Momon rather than Ainz as Momon in the Light Novel.
- (To Ainz about humans): "Humans are worthless trash."
- (To Ainz): "Ainz-sama, I am very sorry! Allow me to atone for my crime with death!"
- (To Hamsuke about Ainz): "Ainz-sama is only pretending to be a warrior, just like playing a game. If he used his real strength in magic, Armageddon would just be a small matter."
- (To Khajiit about the Supreme Beings): "Because I was created by the Supreme Being that is greater than god."
- (To Ainz): "By your command. From now on, I am no longer Nabe, and will handle this as Narberal Gamma."
- (To Khajiit): "I am not interested in the wishes of a lower life form. But your efforts are laughable. I have some words for you. Good work in being the stepping stone of Ainz-sama."
- (To Torkel): "Please witness closely with your own eyes, the legend of Momon-san, the moment a new page is written."
- (To Ainz): "I think all the proposals thought up by everyone is great! To complete a task together with Ainz-sama, I don't think there is any greater joy than that!"
- (To the Pleiades): "Evileye and myself are both elementalists. We are arcane magic casters that specialize in the use of a particular element. Although this means our attack power increases greatly, it also means that outside of our area of expertise, we are quite weak."
- (To Ainz about his change in voice as Momon): "Truthfully, I don't think this voice is good. Although it doesn't sound strange, I still think the usual voice of Momon-sa...san sounds better. While I understand there is a reason behind doing this, I admit preferring to hear your old voice."
- (To both Ainz and Hamsuke): "That is right! There is none in this world who is as generous as you are, Ainz-sama! He even spared a pathetically weak creature like you."
