History

Family (or Creators)

- Father - Unknown - Mother - Unknown

Nicholas doesn't remember either of his parents, left to be an orphan.

Pre-RP

Nicholas was an orphan from the start, and grew up on the streets of Nepleslia. He scraped by with theft, scavenging, and some begging, joining a gang in his teens, and learned some tools of the trade, like how to fire weapons, and how to kill, and slowly rose through the gang. He turned to bounty hunting after killing the gangs leader for the bounty on his head, and he fled from the remaining gang members following the incident. After spending a small time in hiding, he is roaming once more, hunting for more targets.

Skills

Communication

Nicholas speaks and writes Nepleslian fluently, and can operate communication devices such as radios, phones, headsets, and other basic communication devices.

Rogue

Nicholas is a sniper, so it was essential early on to learn some stealth techniques. He has practiced moving silently, and blending with a crowd, which is a skill he developed by escaping pursuers after being discovered. He can also use his talent in writing, to create forged documents, that would fool anyone who doesn't look too closely.

Fitness

Nicholas exercises nearly everyday to keep a toned physique. He has strong upper body strength from handling the recoil from a sniper rifle, and climbing tall buildings, to reach a good vantage point. He can run relatively fast, which is just as useful as blending with a crowd when escaping.

Marksman/Sniper/Fighting

Nicholas is a marksman, and keeps his enemies at range. He can identify good vantage points for picking off his target. He has more “training” with a sniper type weapon than any other, and he will usually use a sniper if circumstances allow. He is knows how to operate other weapons, and is a decent hand-to-hand combatant, though it doesn't usually come down to a fist fight if he can help it.

Survival/Basic Medical

Nicholas has been alone nearly his entire life, and knows how to stay alive. In addition to finding food, navigation, and building shelters, Nicholas knows how to hide. This proved useful when younger, but proves deadly now. He can find hiding spots at a moments notice, and uses these to shake off pursuers, and hide himself when lining up a shot at his target. He also knows some basic medical techniques, like patching bullet wounds, scratches, and other small wounds.

Weapons Maintenance and Repair

Nicholas has spent time studying his weapons, and how they work. He can fix most problems with any of his weapons, but can generally fix any weapon using the same mechanics.

Writing

Though his “job” is hunting people down for money, Nicholas enjoys writing, and is usually found writing in his leather-bound journal in his free-time. This also helps when he needs to go incognito, as it is easy for him to pose as a traveling author. Though he writes quite a bit, a constant bane is he never finishes a story, which irritates him to no end. He keeps his various unfinished stories in his messenger bag that he carries most of his personal stuff in.
