Nurzak is a scholarly and wise intellectually. Although he's the oldest member of the Twelve Orders, he has the most physical energy. Emperor Barodius trusts Nurzak and he has many followers. He is the number one officer of the Twelve Orders and is very good at analyzing the opponent, planning strategy and evaluating the situation. He was serving the Gundalians since the reign of Barodius' father, and agrees with his father that the Sacred Orb is dangerous to anyone who tries to get it for evil purposes, leading to distrust Barodius' dark intentions.
As an Elder of Gundalia and an attendant for the previous emperor, Nurzak shows great wisdom and reason. Unlike the rest of the Twelve Orders, he believes in peace and disapproves of Barodius' plans to acquire the power of the Sacred Orb. He also respects the Neathians, particularly Fabia Sheen and Serena Sheen. He also cared about his subordinates, calling Stoica and Kazarina out for disposing another subordinates, and wasn't fooled easily by their lies.
Long ago, Nurzak preferred being on the front lines and was rather reckless. Because of this, and his lack of preparation, all the soldiers under his command, including his daughter, were killed.
Despite believing in peace, he is no pushover; he is willing to take the situation into his own hands if he believes that there is no way around it. While he tries to use persuasion and reason before he takes action, like when he tries to persuade Barodius not to vie for the Sacred Orb and when he warns Kazarina about Barodius' desires, he does not have infinite patience and will give up on them if he sees that they truly will not change their ways. He has a good relationship with Sabator, and has the respect and trust of many other Gundalians, particularly those who survived the Neathian-Gundalian War.
After he became the new Prime Minister of Gundalia, he was respect by his subordinates and even commander Ren Krawler. After Mag Mel was thrown out of Gundalia, He thanks the Battle Brawlers for their help.
Nurzak first appeared in Revelation, when the Twelve Orders were discussing about the powerful Bakugan (Helix Dragonoid) who created the explosion (the battle between Ren and Dan). He told Barodius that there is this virtual game on Earth, known as Bakugan Interspace, and that the explosion affected their planet, Gundalia.
In The Sacred Orb, he used Sabator to brawl against the Neathian defenses, when Sabator was brawling he was surprised to see Sabator so evenly matched with Coredem and knew this was bad. He was later sent back to Gundalia along with the other Gundalians due to the Sacred Orb's energy.
In The Secret of the Orb, Nurzak and Ren headed to Neathia to battle Marucho and Fabia. Nurzak and Ren were in battle with Fabia and Marucho. However, in the middle of the battle the Sacred Orb sent out a violent dimensional twister and he and Ren were forced to retreat. Later, he and Kazarina decide to leave Emperor Barodius.
In Divide and Conquer, Nurzak and Kazarina prepared to betray Emperor Barodius and take over Gundalia, but Kazarina revealed herself as a loyal spy for Emperor Barodius. He sends a message to Neathia to meet for a peace treaty, but is ambushed by Barodius before he could depart, and was presumably killed in the battle.
However in Genesis, it was revealed that he was not killed by Dharak, but was instead sent to the space in between dimensions. He and Mason Brown observed the battle between Drago and Dragonoid Colossus. After the battle, Dan decided to take them back with him to Neathia and they joined the Brawlers. Nurzak explained his ordeal with Emperor Barodius, and pledged his loyalty to Neathia and the Sacred Orb . Together, they all went to Gundalia to free Jake from Kazarina.
In True Evolution, his group decides to split into two smaller groups to attack Kazarina's lab. He and Fabia form one of the groups, but are ambushed by Kazarina and Stoica before they get there.
In Redemption, he and Fabia battled Kazarina and Stoica. He and Fabia managed to trick Stoica and Kazarina by faking their deaths by falling down a hole. Nurzak then tells Fabia the story of a friend of his who always wanted to be in front fighting rather than strategizing in the back. Because of his attitude, the troops he led, his own daughter included, were killed in battle. Nurzak tells Fabia that she reminds him of his daughter. Stoica and Kazarina discover the trick and another battle ensues, during which Kazarina reveals she has hypnotized Lena, Zenet and Jesse. Stoica begins flooding the area, forcing Kazarina, Lena, Jesse and Zenet to retreat. Fabia is nearly carried away by the water, but Nurzak manages to save her but he and Sabator are carried away by the water. It is then revealed that the story Nurzak told was actually about himself. While being carried away by the current, he has a vision of his daughter, Floria, who bears a resemblance to Fabia. Fabia has Aranaut search for Nurzak and Sabator but he is unsuccessful.
In Gundalian Showdown, he is proven to still be alive where he returns with Mason just as they disrupt the battle between Fabia and Kazarina.
In Broken Spell, he helps Fabia fight Kazarina. When Lumagrowl rebels against Kazarina and starts fighting by himself, Nurzak and Kazarina start to fight each other with sabers. He knocks Kazarina's weapon out of her hand and pursues her only to find her dead. He then carries her back outside and tells Fabia, Mason and Lumagrowl.
In Code Eve, he returned to Neathia in a Gundalian Ship. He later attacks Emperor Barodius only to have Sabator shot out of the sky by Lythirus' Acid Bubble. He is then defeated and falls into a chasm.
In Destiny Revealed, he is shown not to be dead and arrives alongside the Castle Knights after Dan and Emperor Barodius return to Neathia. He calls Barodius a sore loser for still trying to take the power of the Sacred Orb and warns him not to do it, but Barodius and Dharak are destroyed by its immense power. Then, he and the rest of the Gundalians form an alliance with Neathia and return to Gundalia to form a new government.
In Gundalia Under Fire, he was seen talking to the Battle Brawlers and talking about how and when Mag Mel, Razenoid and the Chaos Bakugan attacked. It is also revealed that Nurzak is the first ever Prime Minister of Gundalia.
In Unlocking the Gate, Nurzak was seen talking to Fabia about the invading Chaos Bakugan and how they might invade Neathia next if they are able to take Gundalia down. Near the end of the episode, Nurzak and Fabia are happy that Mag Mel and Razenoid are finally defeated.
In True Colours, he and Queen Fabia thanked the brawlers for their work against Mag Mel and bidding farewell to them.
Bakugan: Gundalian Invaders
Although most of Nurzak's brawls have been losses, he appears to be a powerful brawler as he was the only one, other than Dan Kuso, to win a round against Emperor Barodius, and he and Fabia were winning against Kazarina and Stoica until they called in reinforcements.
