Nicolas was in Gryffindor, which spells out a fair amount of his personality. He is courageous, sometimes recklessly but he is also able to decide against what he might first want to do in a fit of courage. He is confident in his magical abilities, and his ability to learn new things except in two areas, Divination (anything to do with the future really) and healing (despite being fairly good at it.)
Nicolas was once joyous and always happy go lucky, however after events in his life he changed to being much more solemn the majority of the time. He considers himself to be very loyal and steadfast in his beliefs.
It often takes him a while to develop any form of relationship since becoming more of a reserved individual, though if he truly wanted to he could open up to anybody.
Having been an Auror for a number of years has taught and is teaching him a fair amount of things about himself, and other people. His experiences as an Auror have thus far caused him to become very observant of people's behaviour, no matter how minor.
He seems to be a paradox in many senses, he is kind and gentle, but when the time comes he is fierce and relentless. He is wise beyond his years, yet clueless in many aspects of life. He often finds himself at ends with himself, unsure of what to do, what to think, or whom to turn to.


Nicolas was raised in a wealthy pure blood home. His family's manor is located approximately five miles south of Kendal in the province of Cumbria, England. Nicolas attended Hogwarts in Great Britain. He, of course, was a Gryffindor student and succeeded at most things he tried.He played for the Gryffindor Quidditch Team in his 4th year at Hogwarts and up as a chaser. He became a prefect in his 5th year at school and Head Boy in his seventh. He had no siblings but kept a few close friends by him through his school years.
Nicolas' father worked for the British Ministry of Magic in the experimental charms department and was murdered by a small radical group of Death Eaters after Nicolas was of age in 2007. His mother died shortly after his father of a broken heart.
After his families deaths Nicolas found he had nobody to turn to, and nobody to confide in. He found his family’s manor barren and lifeless without his parents whom he thought would always be there. Though before those tragic deaths he understood death, he was ill prepared for the deaths of his parents.
He soon moved to New Zealand where he rented a home and did odd work wherever he felt for the next few years. Then, having had exceptional grades in school he applied for an auror training program in New Zealand, he made it through preliminaries and was trained further. Nicolas, after becoming an Auror, took a course of sorts at St. Mungo's to improve his healing abilities. However, he still didn't feel comfortable taking somebody else's health in his hands. He is able to heal many illnesses and injuries relatively well, however he tries not to and is insecure about this aspect of his magical ability. As an Auror he was promptly positioned at the newly opened branch of Hogwarts (undercover-esque) 'Just in case' (as quoted from the Minister of Magic). He was, much later, exposed as an Auror by Tristan Drage (known to the Daily Prophet and it's readers as the source.
Nicolas left Hogwarts in June 2022 in order to pursue a greater career as an Auror, but was asked to return in June of 2023 by Cecily Rambolt. He returned to the school for Y8. After the murder of Scott Anderson, Head of the Auror department, Nicolas was taken out of Hogwarts and brought back to the Ministry of Magic as new Head of the Auror department.


William King - Nicolas' father, William was a Ravenclaw student in Hogwarts, U.K. he had always been enthralled by charms and at one point considered becoming a Charms Professor at Hogwarts, Scotland. Instead, he was employed for the experimental charms department of the Ministry of Magic. At the age of thirty William and his wife Gabrielle gave birth to Nicolas King.

William was killed by Death Eaters at the age of 47, at the time he had been working on a charm that would be able to alert the Ministry to the location of anybody bearing the Dark Mark. This would have increased the speed of rounding up remaining followers of Voldemort, or removing the threat of the new Dark Lord.

Gabrielle [Gah-brielle] (Elgrand) King - Gabrielle, Nicolas' Mother, had been a Gryffindor in Hogwarts, where  she met her husband William. Gabrielle's favorite subject in school had been transfiguration, though she never became skilled enough to be an animagus. After Hogwarts she worked for a short time as a consultant to the Regulation of Magical Creatures department, however she quit work after having Nicolas.

Nicolas has no siblings.
