More about Nico

Ex-gang member.

Bio:

Nico’s real name is Kyeongjae Park (박 켱재), called KJ by everyone except his grandmother and the justice system. He was given a new identity by Department-7 once they decided he was worth the effort, as well as some cosmetic surgery and other techniques to remove scars, tattoos, and other identifying marks.

A few years before he was born, Nico’s parents moved from Korea to Los Angeles and opened a small market. Nico speaks English in a typical Southern Californian accent. Nico can speak Korean fluently, but with an accent that sounds gratingly American to a native speaker. He also knows a smattering of Mexican Spanish, particularly the most vulgar insults.

The first impression most people have of Nico is twitchy. He is restless, and tends to strum his fingers in complicated patterns on things, or to fidget with keys, a pen, whatever is convenient, making the item dance back and forth across his hand as by magic. He has always been hyper like this, which greatly annoyed his parents. Early on, they enrolled him in taekwondo with a respected local teacher. That has helped him direct his energy into such soothing activities as breaking boards with his fists and performing multiple kicks back-to-back.

Unfortunately, Nico ended up getting involved in gang activity in his teens, mostly petty turf battles with other gangs over who could sell illegal substances on which streetcorner. He got in some fights where people got stabbed, shot, and killed, both friends and enemies. He never killed anyone himself, but he did break some bones and caused serious wounds to some opponents. He had some scars from fights, and tattoos from gang affiliation.

In a gang fight one fateful night, Nico saw his best friend get his head nearly bitten off…by someone…something. At first he thought it was just an unusually big member of the enemy gang. Then his vision seemed to shift, and instead he saw what he now realizes was a bugbear, with his friend’s blood dripping from the beast’s fangs. This caused an emotional crisis that eventually led to Nico rejecting that lifestyle and going to community college to get his GED and take a few classes. The incident also drew the attention of Department-7, and led them to investigate whether Nico had what it takes to become an Agent.

Nico is used to smoking 3-4 packs of cigarettes a day. He has attempted to quit many times, and is currently trying to use an electronic cigarette as a substitute, due to the non-smoking restrictions throughout Department-7. He tends to dress all in black.
