Born in 1981 in the suburbs of Lyon, Nauriel (alias Magali Lacombe) has always been passionate about drawing. In 1998, after studying literature in high school, she was admitted to the Emile Cohl art school. Four years later, having earned a degree in comics illustration, she entered the fanzine milieu and chose the pen name Nauriel (a reference to the Tolkien universe). While she was taking part in several different projects, she met scriptwriter Éric Corbeyran at a festival in Chambéry. This meeting led her to illustrating the fantasy series Nanami, co-written by Corbeyran and Amélie Sarn and published by Dargaud (Europe Comics in English).
