Lambda greatly resembles her predecessor Nu, but with the exception of a palette swap; having light blond hair, a tan complexion, and black and white armor. From BlazBlue: Chronophantasma Extend onwards, Lambda has a constant dark green aura enveloping her.
Within her battle armor, Lambda is identical to Nu, save for the key differences above. Her actual appearance is that of a young woman with tanned skin and long, light blond hair that is tied into an plat that easily reaches the back of her calves. She wears a huge visor with a single red eye, the visor has two massive ear-like constructs coming out of its sides that skim past the back of her head. Lambda typically wears a black body tight jumpsuit that covers her from her neck to her upper thighs; the suit has no back and has a small metallic piece covering the bottom center of her pelvis. When in her battle form, her shoulders and back are covered with her cybernetic armor, as are her, usually bare, fore arms, which are equipped with gauntlets that are attached with small blades; her fingernails have small, yet sharp, blades attached to them. Her legs are covered by the typical Murakumo Unit armor and the 8 Murakumo blades surround her.
Outside of her battle form, Lambda wears her black jumpsuit and a cape that is divided into three cloves. The cape itself is black, white and yellow, the lower parts of the side cloves have inscribed on them: “Λ No.11 Murakumo Unit ◄Idea DRIVE► -2198-”. Her cloak is held together with a large metal tablet which has her crest engraved upon it; hanging from this tablet is a small yellow and white fabric.
In the end of BlazBlue: Centralfiction, Lambda dresses as a nun and now works at the church along with Noel.
At the beginning of her story in BlazBlue: Continuum Shift which showed her past where she was in the middle of being experimented by scientists, Lambda was full of emotion and seemed to act slightly similar to Noel Vermillion in some aspects. However, because her desperate pleas for help could not be heard, and because the scientists had taken their experiments on her to the extreme, Lambda had unfortunately died. After Nu’s soul was salvaged and installed into Lambda’s body, due to the remnants of Lambda’s memories remaining in the body, Nu had temporarily mistook the memories as her own, which made her go into a panic as she was remembering the painful experiment that Lambda had gone through in the past. This forced Kokonoe to erase the memories within Lambda’s body completely, turning Lambda into an empty shell. As a result, Lambda became emotionless, quiet, and only follows orders given by Kokonoe. Over the course of the story, however, she started to regain Nu’s memories, remembering Ragna the Bloodedge as a result, and even refusing to kill him when Kokonoe ordered to do so. After recovering her memories completely, she rushed to protect Ragna, albeit at the cost of her life.
In BlazBlue: Alter Memory, Lambda was at first shown to be an emotionless weapon following Kokonoe’s orders, but later it was shown that Lambda was an innocent girl at heart who didn’t know anything. She was shown to be caring towards an injured tartar that Arakune had dropped and was sad about its death. Because she never had experience in the outside world, she had tried to copy what Ragna does after seeing him. She also did not know the meaning of being “gentle” at the time, so Ragna had taught her the meaning behind it.
After returning in BlazBlue: Chronophantasma Extend, Lambda developed amnesia when first reawakening back in the real world. For the most part of her Arcade Mode, Rachel and Noel have her face multiple illusions of other characters from the series in an attempt to jog her memory and get her to remember her life. After finally defeating a simulation of Nu, she is able to remember her previous life, her master Kokonoe, Ragna’s name and how nice he was to her. From that point onward, Lambda became a kind, innocent and caring person outside of battle, despite also being a soldier that doesn’t ask questions who works for Kokonoe, which she somehow doesn’t seem to mind.
On top of that, it is hinted that she may have a romantic affection for Ragna, or at least cares about him a great deal. Unlike her counterpart, Nu-13, her love is more subtle and quiet, compared to Nu’s stalker-like, yandere obsession that she has for Ragna. An example of this includes her battle with Hakumen in BlazBlue: Centralfiction, where she states that she wants to become stronger in order to be with Ragna and protect him from anyone that threatens to hurt him. Also, in her Act III of Centralfiction, when she is beaten by Ragna she willingly surrenders to him, saying that she will let him destroy her since her only wish was to meet him.
Lambda is a Dimensional Boundary Contact Prime Field created by Relius Clover, based on Saya. She was used as a test subject for experiments of the 7th Agency’s scientists, since her body was identical to Mu-12, but during an extremely painful experiment she died and was disposed of, deemed a failure. After the destruction of the 5th Hierarchical City of Ibukido, TR-0009 Tager retrieved a coffin containing Lambda’s decaying body, which was later restored by Kokonoe. Kokonoe placed Nu-13’s soul, recovered after she fell into the Sheol Gate, in Lambda’s body, and made a special armor for her, turning the Prime Field into an imitation Murakumo Unit. Since Lambda started to hate the world because of all the pain she suffered through, when Nu mistook Lambda’s memories for her own, Kokonoe was forced to erase all of her memories, and as a result, Lambda-11 was only interested in carrying out her orders.
BlazBlue: Continuum Shift

|This section is based on true ending, “MURAKUMO”, of BlazBlue: Continuum Shift (II · Extend).|

Lambda returns from death thanks to the Embryo, which summoned her soul from Ibukido, the place where it died. When she appeared in the Embryo, Lambda lost all of her memories, so Rachel and Noel decided to test her strength, by pitting her against several simulated opponents and even fighting her themselves, before finally making her fight against an illusion of Nu-13. Lambda defeats Nu, finally remembers her name and Ragna, makes a wish to meet him, and awakens, revived as an actual Murakumo Unit.

Powers and abilities
Lambda’s powers are similar to Nu’s, the difference being that hers are significantly weaker in comparison, with slower swords being summoned at a closer range. Lambda also has a much larger emphasis on guard breaking compared to her predecessor, and more close range options. Adding to her list of weaknesses, Lambda’s armor was made out of titanium and light metals as opposed to Nu and Mu’s components of Hihiirokane meaning that she could take much less hits as opposed to the aforementioned two. Lambda wore her armor by using special machines in Kokonoe’s laboratory, but since in BlazBlue: Chronophantasma Extend she summons her armor at will.
Lambda’s Drive is Sword Summoner Revision (ソードサマナー改 Sōdo Samanā Kai, localized as Sword Summoner EX). In BlazBlue: Continuum Shift games, it was just a weaker version of Nu’s Drive, but in BlazBlue: Chronophantasma Extend it became a bit different. Lambda automatically summons the follow-up blade if the first blade hits, and some of her blades are summoned at different angles. Her Overdrive, Elysium (エリュシオン Eryushion) makes her summoned swords bigger in size and deal more damage.
Lambda is one of the Qualified.
- “Lambda” is the eleventh letter in the Greek Alphabet and is the first part of Lambda’s Murakumo serial number. The second half of her serial number is 11 which serves to represent her status as the eleventh Murakumo Unit created. Unlike her fellow playable Murakumo Units, Lambda’s name has no relation to death.
- During combos with her swords, she will count up the hits in German, for example “zwei, drei, vier, fünf, sechs, sieben, acht”. Her voice files include numbers in German up to 20.
- In BlazBlue: Continuum Shift, Lambda does not have her own true Unlimited form. Instead, she is replaced by Unlimited Nu when selected. Nu will not count up hits with her swords in German (as she did not do this in BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger), and all lines against certain characters will be replaced with generic lines. However, in the English dub, Nu will still refer to herself as Lambda-11.
- As stated in BlazBlue: Centralfiction’s ending, Lambda has some cooking skills, unlike her “sister” Noel, and the template of her appearance and memories, Saya.
- In the English dub of BlazBlue: Chronophantasma Extend, her voice is at a higher pitch than her original voice in BlazBlue: Continuum Shift, due to the return of Nu, who has a deeper voice to show the difference.
