One half of Benriya, 34-year-old Nicolas is highly skilled with a sword, imposing and somewhat aloof. He is deaf and communicates primarily through sign language, though he can speak in a limited capacity. Along with Worick, Nick works as a gangster-for-hire. He is an A/O level Twilight or "tagged" (in reference to his dog tags), making him both feared and reviled on the streets. Despite his rough exterior, Nicolas has a soft spot for Nina and is beginning to accept Alex's presence at the Benriya residence. He is also rather short, measuring in at only 5'5".
