APPEARANCE
Nicholas is a big guy, over six feet tall, with a broad, well-muscled physique. Fair-haired and fair-skinned, with bright blue eyes and strong, handsome features, Nick is a rather handsome young man, although he tends to give people the impression that he's about to lash out at something at any moment, and they're usually right. He tends to dress in simple, sturdy clothes, without much concern for looking good. His usual attire is a worn brown jacket, a dark gray t-shirt, dark blue jeans, and heavy black boots.

BACKGROUND
Nicholas Lowell grew up an only child, and barely remembers his father, who only visited rarely while he was a child and vanished entirely in the 90s, before Nicholas's teens. Even while his father was still around, Nicholas was a tempermental child, and it only got worse when puberty set in. In school, he never made friends, and often made enemies, which resulted in many violent altercations resulting in numerous detentions and suspensions, which only gave him time to cause trouble outside of school as well, landing him in juvenile hall more than once. As if his own volatile nature weren't bad enough, much of Nicholas's life was plagued with mishaps and accidents bordering on supernatural. The occasional glance in a mirror showed him standing in a twisted reflection of the world around him, whispers and strange shapes appearing on the edge of his senses, and unusually behaving animals and people harrassing him from time to time.

The only times Nicholas wasn't getting in trouble or dealing with strange events was when he spent summers with his uncle Edward. His uncle was much more understanding with Nicholas than most people were when he lashed out at them, though he never coddled him and made him own up to how he acted out of anger, willing to put him in his place when necessary. Most of the time he spent with his uncle was out away from civilization, roughing it in the woods and hunting from time to time. It was during these trips that his uncle would tell him old folk tales and ghost stories, though he never fully explained where they were from. Curiously enough, they often ended up relating to one of Nicholas's strange encounters with the unknown, and helped him get through it, though he felt foolish for relying on superstition. His uncle also spent a lot of time teaching Nicholas what could be politely called 'self-defense', though the defense was more the 'good offense' sort, learning how to take a person down with brutal effect, either with a weapon or his bare hands. It hardly seemed like the sort of thing to teach someone already prone to violence, but his uncle didn't seem that concerned, and it was quite cathartic for Nicholas to work his aggressions out and calm down. Even the supernatural strangeness seemed to die down when he was around his uncle, or one of his uncle's friends, who often showed up or tagged along during their camping trips. Nicholas didn't feel all that comfortable around them, despite their being reasonably friendly, because it made him think how something about his uncle made him nervous even though Nicholas got along with him better than almost anyone else.

Nicholas eventually graduated high school, and tried getting a job in his hometown, but his temper and the strange things that happened around him were eventually just too much for him or anyone else to bear. Fed up with the people in his town, and desperate to try and escape the increasingly bizarre phenomena, which had climaxed in ghostly alien… creatures appearing before him and speaking to him directly about things he barely understood, which prompted Alex to pack his things into his beat up old truck, and leave town, looking for somewhere he could escape the weird entities haunting him and calm the barely-restrained fury that burned in his heart and mind, especially on clear nights when the moon was full…

ST INFO
Nicholas's father was a werewolf of Blood Talons tribe, and Nicholas himself is a dangerously potent Wolf-Blood. His father's disappearance was due to his death at the hands of a pack of Predator Kings when the Pure mounted an offensive against the Forsaken in the 90s. His uncle Edward is also a Blood Talon, an Ithaeur, and is keeping a close eye on his brother's family, both out of respect for his brother and because he thinks it likely that Nicholas will undergo the First Change. The stories he tells Nicholas on their camping trips are thinly-veiled spirit lore passed on to Nicholas to help him protect himself from the predations of curious spirits attracted by his blood, and the training in combat and wilderness survival is to prepare him for life as a Uratha, and hopefully another Blood Talon into a family of them that stretches back into the Middle Ages. If Nicholas does undergo the First Change, he'll have a lot to live up to.
