He is shown to be completely bald, with two tattoos: one on the left side of his head, and another on his cheek.
Before the Giglio Nero and the Gesso joined together to become the Millefiore, Nigella was one of Uni's guards, and a holder of the Cloud Mare Ring. He was there when Uni met with Byakuran privately and "lost her heart." His Mare Ring, along with the other rings, were given to Byakuran as part of the agreement to join the families. Under the Millefiore, Nigella became captain of the 9th Squad.
Nigella is first seen being commanded by the Cervello to protect Shoichi's Research Lab along with Baishana. When he arrives, however, Baishana attacks him. Baishana taunts him into accepting a battle in which, if Nigella should lose, he will forfeit his Box Weapon.
The battle is skipped in both the anime and the manga. Nigella, Takeshi Yamamoto, Hayato Gokudera, ten-years-later Ryohei Sasagawa, and an unconscious Lal Mirch walk in just as the fight ends. Nigella is dealt the final blow by Baishana's eight Cervo Volante Tempesta. While the Demon Bear's paw comes flying back into the battlefield, Baishana's other Box Weapon, the Serpe Tempesta eats it alive. It is unknown whether Nigella survived or not.
