The 10th priest of the Patch tribe, in the anime he first appears in episode 50. Nichrom became the 10th priest after his brother, Chrom the previous 10th priest, was killed by Tao Ren. In the manga, Nichrom was able to kill Ren who was later revived by Iron Maiden Jeanne. Also (in the anime) Nichrom joins up with Asakura Hao. What has surprised most fans is Nichrom's age, since it has been stated that he was eight when he joined the Patch tribe. His spirit is a scorpion, yellow whip, with his medium being a scorpion's tail. It is revealed, in the new ending of the series, that his Plant was in fact the 7th Plant of the Cave, which also used to be his brothers Plant as well as keeping his brothers spirit ally closely with him which is a cricket called purple kick. Yellow whip's oversoul looks like a scorpion with no legs fused into his right arm. The stingers length can also change as well to attack opponents from a distance, but the actual use of yellow whip is to use the scorpion pincers to immobilize the opponents arms while the scorpion's stinger strikes with an attack called "Dreaming needle" that delivers a deadly poison that won't disappear unless the one who created the oversoul dies. The second oversoul called Purple kick looks like a pair of insect designed armored leggings. Said to be the fastest of all ten officiant spirit allies, it can allow the user to move at speeds that even powerful experienced opponents can barely keep track of. It attacks with a powerful leg technique called "Dancing insect".
