Nana Sawada is Iemitsu Sawada's wife and Tsunayoshi Sawada's mother. Nana is a kind and compassionate woman, she is very welcoming to many of her sons friends and doesn't have any problem inviting new people into her home, she is always feeding the people who live in her house and does not think they are strange. In spite of her caring nature, Nana has fairly little belief in her son succeeding in life. She does not expect him to get into a good college, has outbursts that he's a loser, and even thanks Kyoko Sasagawa on her knees when she believes that she's Tsuna's girlfriend. Nana is unaware that her husband and son are involved in the mafia, a secret that Iemitsu deliberatly keeps from her, and she is completely kept away from the mafia. She has only caught two glimpses of the mafia, however, she faints and believes they are dreams on both occasions. At times she's aware that her husband and son are hiding something from her, which frustrates her.
