Bio:

Nikius, or Nik as he goes by amongst friends, stands just over three feet tall, and will vehemently point out that he is two inches taller than most halflings. His hazel eyes always have a smile at the corners, and there’s always a bit of a bounce in his step. His shiny black hair is kept in wind braids and bushy sideburns. He is lithe and flexible, and quite fit. He wears overly elaborate clothing of black and green most of the time, and can often be found either reading with his reading glasses on, or smoking the local-grown tobacco in his blackwood pipe.

Nik is a good-natured, if habitual, liar. Anyone who has known him for long enough can tell when he’s full of it, and he doesn’t contest it. Every time he’s called on it, Nik shakes his head, saying he’ll try to be more honest in the future. He never is.

His family are merchants from Athens, where Nik spent half of his life. The other half, including most summers, was spent in a smaller fishing village on the coast of the Mediterranean. He still gets along well with his entire family, save his father, whom he has somewhat good-natured quarrels with from time to time about his chosen career path.

The aforementioned path is that of a career sneak-thief and knife-fighter. He reveres Hermes for his laughing thievery, and emulates the messenger god whenever it’s interesting or convenient.

Nik loves animals, and can’t stand seeing them mistreated. While he won’t directly confront the animals’ owner, he has a bad habit of ‘freeing’ domesticated animals and/or sabotaging some aspect of the individual’s life to pay him back for it. He particularly likes dogs that are bigger than he is.
