Personality

Niho finds it easy to pretend to be a caring gentle person, but in reality he is self-centered and uncaring. Everything he does is cold and calculating, though always veiled with sugar-coated lies. Often-times, he'll put on an overly friendly facade when he wants another to do something for him. Niho is quite manipulative, skilled at playing with people's emotions. Everything is a tool to be used, and everyone is ultimately expendable in his great quest for power.

Equipment

Niho is armed with his ancestral sword, Black Razor. This weapon, forged from black steel, was plundered from White Plume Mountain by his great-grandfather, and has been passed down through the generations ever since. He also carries his spell book. Many of the spells within were copied from the dreaded Necronomicon itself.

History

Niho was trained in the art of swordsmanship by his father, who taught him that no one is above 'fighting dirty'. Niho's mother schooled him in the dark art of Necromancy.

Niho travels the land often, sometimes alone, sometimes with companions. In between journeys, the unscrupulous villain schemes and plots various and unscrupulous ways to better himself. Niho was once a follower of the demon god Orcus, Prince of The Undead. Now, however, he is unwittingly a servant of Valenessa, just one more cog in her grand machinations.

So begins...

"Well, aren't we a pleasant waitress..." Niho chuckled. "I'll take a shot of rum, and perhaps some information."

The young man downed the shot of rum in one swift gulp, then handed her two gold coins. "One's for the rum, the other's for talking," he explained to her. "As far as the information I'm looking for ... have you heard or seen anything ... unusual lately?"

Niho arches an eyebrow at the unusually mouthy waitress. He then handed her two more coins. "There's your tip. And no, I'm not new here, and I'm not a kid. I know this place is a strange one, and strange people come here often. I'm asking about something unusual, even for this place."

Niho lets out a despairing sigh. "Alright, let's cut to the chase, woman. I'm a man for hire. A mercenary, and one currently looking for work. Strange things usually mean a job opportunity, but obviously you aren't quite catching my drift. I'm looking for work. Know anyone who's hiring? Maybe you need something done yourself."

Niho lets out a long, tired sigh, his gaze falling to the floor, his long hair obscuring his face. As he looks up once again, sweeping his hair out of his face, he smiles warmly as he slowly approaches BBC, extending his hand. "I'm sorry about the fuss I've caused," he said in a friendly tone. "It's been a very long and frustrating day. While no excuse, I hope you'll pardon my attrocious behavior."

Niho "Well, a damsel in distress is a rather cliche way of saying 'a girl in trouble'," Niho explained to Mink. "You are a girl, and someone usually only hides when they are in trouble, so ..."

Niho "Mammy?" he asked curiously as the child hurried away. He followed her with his gaze until he spied HellShine. Seeing who had sent the child, Niho merely gave her a smug look.
