Download for more details, if you like!Name:
None, though she liberally uses her fists as weapons.Special skills:
Very thick skin (mentally and physically—the woman has a ton of calluses), high pain tolerance, can hold her alcohol.Magic:
She usually travels pretty light—a small pack with her money and belongings, some bandages, practical things. She has more items in her home, but these usually stay home.Brief Bio:
A friendly woman who is found joking with people more often than not, Nick is a pretty kind woman—and by pretty kind, I mean extremely kind. She's always out to make friends, and she loves conversing with strangers—almost to the point where she becomes too
persistent in trying to make small talk. However, while she may not be the keenest when it comes to detecting social cues, she is always very quick to apologize if she unsettles someone. She strives to be polite in most situations, despite her unshakably casual attitude.
A girl from a small, slightly impoverished family in Kakariko Village, Nick came from humble beginnings and maintains a similarly humble mindset. She may be a thief, but she tries to be frugal with purchases for herself, as she is happy to subsist on very little. Nick is surprisingly chivalrous, as well, thanks to spending much of her childhood looking after less capable kids in her neighborhood. If someone is in clear need, she will jump to their defense. Whether this means physically defending someone from bullying or providing other forms of assistance (money, food, etc.) makes little difference to her. She looks out for herself, her family, and her friends, but when she is not in need she tries to be as generous as she can be.
All that said, she does have a tendency to seek pleasure in slightly risky places. She admittedly loves brawling and winds up leaving bars with nasty bruises more often than not, and though she mostly does her thieving for money-making purposes, she admittedly enjoys the thrill of it all. She doesn't have much of a temper, but she has a pretty dualistic view of things—either she gets along with someone in a peaceful situation, or things get messy and she defaults to violence. She may not like hurting those who aren't deserving, but she's happy to take down anyone who's enough of a jerk to earn a meeting with her fists.Quirks:
Nick has a habit of making up scores of nicknames for people. Strangers or new acquaintances usually get at least one, and people close to her usually get a few extra names.
She is very firmly an optimist. She doesn't deal much in sarcasm, her humor is usually pretty upbeat (and bawdy, in situations where it is not uncalled for), and she is hard to put in a bad mood.
Nick is rather set in her ways. She doesn't mind traveling, different thieving jobs, or changes occurring around her (which is good, considering Zahira's tendencies), but she habitually sticks to the same kinds of clothing, foods, etc. She likes visiting the same places, having a house, and generally being able to have a set way about her.
She has a tattoo on her left side that was designed by Zahira as a stylized version of Din's symbol (Nick values power, thanks to her tendency toward violence). She designed a matching one for Zahira that was based off of Nayru's symbol, but she insists that her design was clumsy and doesn't really deserve to be used as a real tattoo.
Nick very obviously dresses much like a man would. While she gives a variety of responses when asked for a reason, it mainly boils down to practicality. She used to wear dresses and they always got in the way when she inevitably fought people. She started dressing more boyishly when she realized that skirts and long hair would just slow her down. She eventually got to a point where she started binding her chest to keep herself more streamlined, and when people assumed she was a man, she stopped correcting them. It's never bothered her much, as she'd never had a very girly personality to begin with.
She is affiliated with the Thieves Guild, along with Zahira, but she considers it a loose affiliation. She's happy to have the protection and jobs, but when it comes down it, she considers her partnership with Zahira to be more important where thieving is concerned.History:
Nick was born in Kakariko Village to a hard working man and his somewhat sickly wife. The oldest to a few siblings, it fell to Nick to help out her father in making money for their family—which she was more than happy to do. As soon as she was able, she started helping out at a local tavern, doing scullery work when she was younger and moving up to barmaid work when she was old enough. Whenever she wasn't working, she was defending her siblings and younger friends from bullies and other obstacles, and even when she was at work, she would snitch trinkets and coins from particularly unpleasant guests to help out her family and friends.
When her other siblings were old enough to help out with the family, Nick felt a bit justified in traveling on her own for a while. By the time she was twenty two, she was tired of barmaid work and ended up getting in bar fights more often than she did real work. She set off on her own, surviving on the thieving skills she had developed in her younger years and picking up menial tasks on the road. It wasn't until she was about twenty four that she returned home to Kakariko and happened to meet and fall in love with a woman named Zahira. The both of them thieves, they eventually decided they would stick together and, after some working and saving, the two of them bought a house and a shop in Castle Town so that they could have a home and a front for their thievery.
She and Zahira have been in Castle Town for about a year and a half, Nick posing as a “husband” and shopkeep for Zahira and her seamstress work. They both still do thieving jobs on the side, but Nick is happy to have a slightly more stable income to go along with the “fun” job.
lolololol Another character. This one is Nixfiata (now Nick), for anyone familiar with #Org-Playlist
. I'm rather happy with this particular incarnation of her, too.
