Romantic Interests

Whenever I'm alone, a tiefling barbarian occupies my thoughts.

Relationship Status

We're linked, she and I, by contract and love.

My Story Is...

With a name like Nick Shadow, you’d think I’d be someone important, right? The son of some archdevil, living it up in a big ol’ castle in one of the less hellish places in the Hells?




I’m actually just an imp servant. When the local archdevil brains some poor schmuck and throws that carcass onto the rug, I’m the one scrubbing out the stains. The archdevil decides he doesn’t want all of his intestine noodles? I’m doing the extra dishes… can’t even eat the leftovers. I’ve become a master of trident-ducking, which is something every imp has to get good at real fast if they want to survive one day beneath an archdevil’s wrathful command.


So why do I do it, you ask? Why do I continue being a servant in the Nine Hells?


I don’t. I packed my bags, flipped ’em off, and left for a better world. Instead, I wound up on Hellifyno. Just my luck; my magic is terribly low-level, and I’m no warrior. Looks like it’s just me, my wits and my cleaning services versus this crazy planet. Wish me luck.


Well, so it used to be. I’m not alone anymore.

My Appearance

Blond hair, pointed ears, aqua-blue eyes and ringed horns. I’ve gotten rid of my old servant’s uniform; these days, I wear whatever I like. My attire changes along with my forms (by necessity, so the clothes don’t sag or tear). The end of my tail isn’t heart-shaped anymore, but I like to think it still looks cute. And the spines don’t come out unless I’m unhappy, honest!

Hell’s Bells: Nick can use these to travel back and forth from the Nine Hells to Hellifyno.

Familiar Contract: Nick can enter into a contract to serve another creature as a familiar, forming a telepathic bond with his willing master. While the two are bonded, the master can sense what the imp senses as long as they are within one mile of each other. While Nick is within ten feet of his master, the master shares his magic resistance trait. If his master violates the terms of the contract, Nick can end his service as a familiar, ending the telepathic bond.
