Nic was born in District two to one of the wealthiest families in town, growing up with no predominant male figure in his life due to his father being in the Capitol. Little is known at present about his childhood, although it should be noted that he is was extremely close to Cami as a child.
The exact age he was when he met Alyssa is unknown, though he was around fourteen when they began to date. Their relationship was extremely abusive (with him being the victim), leaving Nic emotionally scarred - at one point him even going as far to attempt to take his own life.
Nic is very handsome, standing 5'10" in height with a well built, toned physique. Nic has a light complexion with olive undertones and has a strong bone structure with high cheeks bones and a solid jaw line. He possesses dark brown almost black hair which hangs just over his ears, usually styled in a casual disarray yet sometimes gelled for special occasions. With striking, intense light blue eyes contrasting wonderfully against darkened lashes and eyebrows, a "bad boy" smile, he can be described as relatively athletic, tall, strong, sexy and seductive.
Nic's clothing style has remained somewhat similar throughout the series, usually favoring darker clothing; black shirts, t-shirts and boots underneath darkened jeans and black trousers, although on occasion has been seen wearing lighter colors.
To those who he is not familiar with, Nic can be viewed as extremely arrogant, untrustworthy and someone who is extremely rude;he tends to put on a cold exterior in order to avoid him being look upon as weak. Though around the few that he is close with, he's a different person completely. Sarcastic as hell, loyal to a fault and someone who can be easily bribed - he's enjoyable to be around and seems to have a quip for any occasion. His more playful side is commonly seen with Kendall (moreso when she was younger) and his sister.
