Character Summary

The luck of the draw kept Nico short and skinny for much of his childhood, which attracted almost as much teasing and mocking from his peers as did his shy, quiet diffidence and his distrusting, paranoid vigilance. At 5'9", Nico is hardly tall now, but he can hold his own in a fight, now. He has light brown hair which always looks tousled. It's difficult to manage. His eyes are a light grey, often widened in fear or curiosity.

Nico was born to a wealthy family. His father had high expectations for both his children. As much as he respected his eldest child, he pinned all of his hopes on his youngest, his son. Nico failed every expectation. Always watchful for danger, Nico has a photographer's eye. He enjoys the disturbing, the macabre, and the dark, and he tends to go where he shouldn't. His demon only encourages this; it leads to more worry and paranoia as he moves deeper into things he shouldn't investigate.

Character In-Depth

Nico is defined as much by his anger as he is by his paranoia, but underneath it all is a morbid curiosity. Nico loves storytelling, and art, and is fascinated by capturing the darkest parts of human nature in fixed form. He observes others carefully, always trying to understand them. He ultimately hopes to find a real connection with someone, but he sabotages himself at every opportunity by distancing himself from people, and reality.

He has a taste for fantasy novels, movies, and tabletop games, but he wouldn't admit it to anyone else. He's generally very honest, to the point of being blunt. He has a tendency to act out of anger first, and regret it later, but his insecurity defines how he handles other people.

Demon Information

Nico's demon cycles through a variety of shapes, unified by their creepiness. Spiders, centipedes, maggots, and other creeping and crawling creatures, they gather on his body whenever possible. Nico's demon, though it doesn't have a name, is a constant presence in his life. It feeds off his paranoia, using the Hallucination domain on Nico as much as it does on anyone else.
