Not so much orphaned as “lost” by his parents. Nicos learnt to survive on the streets of Fogor Isle, scavenging and stealing the odd coin for food, but was still on the end of more than one knock or, on a couple of occasions a knife, resulting in a rather interesting set of scars on his face. Unfortunately, he was caught trying to pick the pocket of an elderly, but still vigilant, Cleric. This Cleric brought Nicos before Patriarch Sherlane. Nicos was given an ultimatum; either put his obvious abilities to use and join an adventuring party, or go to prison.
Doesn’t say much, and tends to keep to the shadows, where he feels more comfortable. He is very self concious about the scars on his face, and would be quite handsome if it wasn’ t for them. He is also desperate to avoid staying on Fogor Isle and probably ending up in a convict gang or being a bandit somewhere, as he realises that these are not very good career choices.
