Mid-twenties business woman seeking to advance her computer company to one of the top 25 in the world.
Nikita was born in Ville De Colmar, France. She moved to America at age 5 when her father was offered an executive position at his employer’s St. Lois, Mo branch. Nikita found herself caught up in the modernization of corporate America and by 13 had decided she was going to build her own empire.
At age 22 she was leaving her newly formed computer company (Varona Inc.) when an attractive middle-aged man met her in the parking lot. He asked her out for a drink, giving a sob story about how his wife had just left him. Detecting a European accent and feeling a bit lonely herself she agreed to go out with him. His name was Johann Struveck and he claimed to be born in Russia having left his country as a young child with his uncle to escape poverty. Nikita found herself powerfully drawn to Johann and before long she was love struck. After seeing him on and off for a year (and knowing that his inability to be out during the day was somehow occultic) she pleaded with him to take their relationship further. He explained that their relationship could never be like those around them. Feeling rejection and a broken heart Nikita refused to see him any longer, focusing solely on expanding her business from web design to programming and construction of computers.
Johann, not dealing with well with Nikita no longer in his life, cornered her in the parking lot of her work one night and embraced her out of passion. Realizing what he had done, he fled, leaving her to fend for herself. Nikita learned quickly how to survive.
Half driven with her love for Johann and half seeking revenge, Nikita is always vigilant for his whereabouts. Secretly she fears reuniting with him because her only option will be to love him or kill him.
