It's Been a Bad Day
But Tonight, It Only Gets Worse
Name: Nikolai Jones
Age: 19 (going on 20)
D.O.B.: January 17th
Hometown: South Padre Island, Texas
Physical Description: Nik generally stands at around 6’2” and around 168 pounds, quite a bit of it muscle. He has dark brown hair which just about reaches his shoulders. When he’s working it’s tied back in a pony tail and when he’s not, it’s loose and hanging in his face. Sometimes there’s a red streak in it. His eyes are about the same color as his hair and he often has a tired look. Though he’s rough in personality, he keeps himself very clean shaven. He’s kind of pale though his natural skin tone makes him look slightly tanned. Nik has a bit of an overhanging brow that makes him look extra broody.
For clothing he prefers dark colors. His wardrobe consists of ripped jeans, blank t-shirts, leather jackets, biker gloves... Sometimes he dawns leather wrist bands but generally doesn’t like covering up his tattoos. He has one on each wrist of yellow and red fireballs that stop about mid forearm and only on top.
Personality: Upon first glance, Nikolai is very introverted and cold-hearted. He doesn’t seem to have or want any friends. That’s fine with him. He prefers to sit and read or listen to music instead of interacting with people. The first thing out of his mouth when people try to speak to him is usually an insult. That is, if you’re lucky to get him to talk. Usually he’ll just get up and leave. He doesn’t put up with shit from anyone and has been in more fist fights than he can recall. Nik will always call out someone’s stupidity but usually with curse words and insults and with very little explanation. He has very little patience with other people and is generally very cynical.
But if you do manage to get underneath that cold exterior, you’ll find a very loyal and true friend. He’s a little physically rough with friends and is more the one brooding in the corner. He’ll joke a little though it’s mostly sarcasm and he’s always got fairly good, common sense advice. But very few ever get underneath his initial layer of assholery.
He’s very protective of his siblings but isn’t really close to them socially. But if one of his brothers asked for his help, he’d volunteer quick like a bunny.
Traveling With: Family
Contest Entry: Involuntary – a family councilor entered them in the contest in hopes a vacation would save them.
Career/Job: Busboy, Occasional cook.
With Bianca’s booming accountancy company and Louis’s chain of fashion stores very hip to the spring breakers in South Padre Island, Texas, it was a miracle that they ever had time for children. But they did and here they are. At first, their marriage was a very happy one. After all, Louis needed to keep up his cover so he kept his wife happy. In their first year of marriage the twins were conceived and later, very born. Nikolai was a very quiet child and preferred playing alone despite having a twin. In fact, they didn’t act very twin-like at all. Well, school was fine with Nik. He passed his classes and really just moved along like the other sheep.
He never really paid attention to the bitter arguments that would occur behind closed doors as his parents were generally not around much for him to think about it. Although their father made a bit of an effort more than their workaholic mother. Around his and Io’s thirteenth birthday, their world sort of exploded. Their parents began fighting more openly and, well it wasn’t pleasant to say the least. He started doing odd jobs for people around town just to get out of the house.
When he finally graduated high school, he was pretty certain that was his chance to get out of the house. However he was wrong. His grades were fine but there were no scholarships for him as there was really nothing special that he’d ever done to earn them. He ended up working as a busboy in an authentic Mexican restaurant and kind of just stayed there. At least he could look over his brothers and make sure nothing happened to them while their parents got worse and worse.
And then this happened. Their marriage councilor who was utterly failing them decided to enter the whole family in a contest for a cruise, hoping that a vacation might help the lot of them loosen up and reconnect. Here’s hoping they don’t kill each other.
Special Skills/Abilities: Bussing tables, singing rock (not a talent he lets anyone see), dancing (only with the Senorita when she’s in need of a positive pick-me-up), finishing large books in a span of a few days, around the house repair work, speaks Spanish, can make some mean Mexican food.
Hot Head: Nikolai has the worst temper of all the brothers. The slightest little thing will make him want to punch someone in the mouth. It’s very easy to start a fight with him.
Introverted: He’s not very out going. It’s not that he’s shy because he’s very not. He just doesn’t really feel like going out of his way to deal with people. As such, he kind of misses out on a lot of experiences in life, especially nice group experiences.
Impatient: He does not like waiting. If something needs to be done, do it and get it out of his fucking way. And if it doesn’t get done now move and he’ll do it for you. Whatever IT may be.
Cynic: Life sucks and then you die. Nikolai generally doesn’t expect anything pleasant to happen to him ever. Or to anyone around him. If something good does happen, he finds a way to turn it bad and if something bad happens well, that was to be expected.
Smoker: Nik on occasion smokes a cigarette. He’s at about two cigarettes a day but it can get worse the more he stresses out.
Intelligent: He may not really show it but he’s pretty well read and well learned. He’s not a math genius like Grigory but he was always fairly talented in his English classes and took Creative Writing at one point (mostly as a filler class).
House Hold Repairs: He’s very talented with house hold repairs even if he’s never done them before. He’s no electrician but he can install a ceiling fan (as long as someone else does the wire work) or he can take out a toilet and put in a new one. Things along that line of work.
Cooking: He’s been working for a woman he refers to as The Senorita for a couple of years now in her restaurant and though he’s just a busboy, he’s gained a talent for cooking perfectly authentic Mexican food. Anyone else’s style just doesn’t compare to the Senorita’s.
Bi-Lingual: Living less than an hour away from the Mexican border and in Texas... And working for nice Hispanic lady has given him all the knowledge of street Spanish he’ll ever need. Why learn traditional when what’s on the street is more important?
Bianca – Mother
Louis – Father
