Character Portrait

History

Around 300 AD, Nicholas of Myra was a Christian bishop known for generosity. In time he became the fifth most worshipped Christian figure (behind the Holy Trinity and Mary of Nazareth), and a mystic being in his own right. Among modern pantheons, he has status roughly equal to Odin. Indeed, since Odin died, Nicholas has adopted Loki. Elves, gods, and demons all revere Nicholas as much as humans do - even though humans do not realize whom exactly they are revering. Nicholas has interacted with humans in the modern age, but usually not at Christmas and not as Santa Claus.


Personality

Nicholas is an ancient mystic being. He is sparing in his power, but effective in its use. He has appeared at any holiday where gifts may be given, for instance Mothers' Day and Thanksgiving.


Powers and Abilities

Nicholas does not have all the powers or resources associated with "Santa Claus". He especially does not circle the Earth once a year and deliver gifts. But he does has indescribable mystic powers. He has in past enabled, encouraged, and even compelled humans (both dead and alive, both fanciful and real) to give gifts on their own. He can travel to any mystic realm, even among the dead. No human knows how Nicholas would fare in any sort of mystic conflict... because no mystic force has ever messed with him.


Appearance

Nicholas wears a red hooded fur-lined coat like Father Christmas, with a Christian ecclesiastical stole on top.

Author's Notes

I believe this is the first entry since Imperilus that I have created original artwork for. But you might say, Nicholas is important.

It's no secret that Saint Nicholas is more than Santa Claus. I interpreted him such that he has the full power of one of the top two venerated Christian saints. St. Mary also has appeared in my fiction. I did these stories so long ago, it's actually important to my fictional history. So it's perfectly sensible I might publish an entry about one of these guest entities on Christmas Eve... Merry Christmas!
