Nicolai was born in the Beauturne family, the erstwhile rulers of the County of Lozeri, in Ustlav, before the commoners revolted and drove the family out. A nephew of the ex-count, Nicolai began his life in Ardeal. A bright, if not overly focused young man, Nicolai held a fascination about flora and fauna, and how they could be altered by certain substances. While less interested in practical wizardry, he did acknowledge the use of magic. His family, still seething at their lost status and scheming to reclaim it, arranged to have the boy tutored in Cheliax – and to hopefully find foreign backers to fund their goals.

And so, young Nicolai was sent south, to the city of Westcrown (his parents did not want him too near the capital and its 'devilish inffluence'). He joined a small school in Rego Pena, where he learned to craft elixers and poultices, and given more advanced formulas when his instructors felt he was able. Through his upbringing, Nicolai had held something of a disdain for the lower classes; but as he witnessed the harsh laws being enacted in Cheliax, he began to find some understanding as to why the “rabble” in Lozeri forced his uncle and his family out. While he was worried about breaking with his noble heritage and shied away from any overt action, he began to be attracted to the rhetoric beginning to brew in tavern and even his school.


Nicolai is about 5' 8” and weighs at 175 lbs. He is a Varisian ethnicity and Ustlavic nationality, and his accent shows. He has wavy, dark brown hair , slate-blue eyes, and lightly bronzed skin. He likes to dress well, though his clothes do show some wear.


While he can act haughty, especially to non-noblesse (because of his family), Nico is a pretty upright, if not blunt man. He tries to remember his social graces, and acts to impress – however, he can get quite giddy when faced with discussions of flora and fauna, and alchemy.
