Shania's guardian, Natan was the only other survivor of their tribe's massacre by Lady. He is faithful to the end, even as he questions many of Shania's motives throughout the story. Although he is quiet, he is also warm and affectionate. Natan's side quests involve searches for rare creatures called UMAs to power up his abilities. His element is Wind and his primary weapons are twin guns, allowing him to use the special abilities of a style he created, which he calls Gun-Fu.
Natan is quiet, usually stoic and very protective of Shania. He is very kind to others, and acts most like a big brother would. He seems to have a hidden affection for music, as seen by him tapping his foot to a song Ricardo plays the first night they meet him. Because of his great hunting skills, he was given permission to go after the world's UMAs. He is a faithful individual who stands by his princess and friends regardless of their motives.
Gun-Fu is Natan's special ability. It utilizes Natan's skills with his weapons that he wields in battle, and are mainly Wind Classed attacks.

Natan fights with twin-handguns, dual-wielding them in a fusion combat form termed "Gun-Fu". Each of Natan's strikes are finished with a shot from one or both of his guns. This allows him to maintain an almost acrobatic fighting style while accuratley hitting his targets. Natan is also able to channel specific magics through his pistols, forming his "Gun-Fu" special abilities.
