He is an explore who knows the Valthune mountains really well. He spent much of his early twenties tagging alone with a motley crew of dwarfs plundering old mines and other structures in the range. He feels as much at home in a large city bazaar selling his latest trinkets and maps as in a dank and dusty ruin. He is still friendly with his dwarven mates but has spent the last few years of his life mostly on his own as guide for the various ruins in Valthunes. Although of course he shows as much courage as a dwarf, he has many tricks in his backpack to make for an escape for you can’t enjoy your riches if you are dead.
Nicholas is originally from Cerdan where he was a conman and small time thief. His widowed mother still lives in the city, she was aware of some of his work but not the full extent of it. He had a family in Cerdain as well, a wife and and a daughter. His wife was from the Salario family, a major merchant family with considerable sway with the city’s politics. Because of Nicholas’s shady past he was not welcomed by other members of the Salario family. This all changed when Nicholas was asked to perform a job by Malchine crime family, who wanted to use his influence with the Salario family to undermine the Cerdan goverment. When Nicholas refused to do this job Malchine thugs killed his family. In revenge Nicholas killed the Malchine heir, his young wife, and his children.
Because of his history with Cerdan Nicholas then left and assumed his current identity. He is being hunted by both the Salario and Malchine family.
Because of his troubled past Nicholas rarely stays in one spot for an extended period of time. He also keeps tabs on his friends for fear of his past catching up to him. A minus due to his past is that Nicholas can turn into a cold-blooded killer if he feels him or his friends are in danger.
