Niccolo was born to Nyx, the goddess of the night, in January 1994. His father, Jason Blood, was a former KGB agent, and had participated in a lot of Black Ops.
Growing up, Niccolo was trained in the way of a special agent. He was taught how to fight and how to lie. How to gather, and how to send information safely. How to seduce and how to kill. He was basically modelled into the perfect secret agent. His father had known that Nyx was a goddess, and spent a long time trying to activate Niccolo’s powers. After a while he gave up, deciding it could wait for a later time.
When Niccolo was thirteen, he started to accompany his father on missions. His father may not be working for the KGB any more, but now he worked for the Mafia. It was on one such mission that his power activated. A thug was attacking Niccolo from behind, and he couldn’t block in time. However suddenly a spike of darkness impaled the thug, saving Niccolo.
From that point Niccolo’s father helped him train his powers, so he could use them at will. He was sometimes attacked by monsters, but using his powers, and a sword his mother send him, he defeated them. When he was sixteen his father was killed on a mission.
He continued to do missions for about a year, until he found a letter in a box, from his fathers room. It was from his father, telling him to go to this camp Nyx told him about.
So Niccolo packed his stuff and went to camp. It took some time for him, not only because of the travel, but because he needed to tell the mafia he was leaving. They didn't take too kindly to that, so he had to get out of the country without them knowing. Therefore it took him several weeks to get out of Russia and to camp. He had to drive through Russia, to Lithuania, where he took a plane to camp. He arrived a couple months before his eighteenth birthday.
