Nicholas never knew his birth family. He was told by the people who ran the orphanage he spent most of his early years in that they died in a car accident. As far the they knew, this was the truth. At around the age of eight, when his powers started manifesting, he started causing alot of trouble at the orphanage. He would go into fits of rage and fight other orphans. He would bet them he could do some impossible gravity defying feat and when they wouldn't pay off his bet he would beat them. He spent the next two years being shuffled around orphanages until he was adopted by an enforcer of the Nefaria family.
Nicholas was raised to be a fighter and enforcer. By the age of 15 he was one of the premier fighters in the underground mutant fighting rings. When he wasn't fighting his adopted father was teaching him how to be a good enforcer. Sometimes all people needed was some persuasion and a silver tongue to make them change their mind. A little lying did not hurt either. Soon after his 16th birthday he was made an enforcer and protection money collector in New York. Using the skills taught to him by his adopted father, he used his words more than his fists, but a little violence never hurt.
Nicholas quickly rose up the ranks and made quite a bit of money. It was during this time that his betting became serious. Flush with cash, he would force his way into any poker game he heard about. When he got into too much debt he would refuse to pay and cite his connections with the Nefaria family. No one tried to collect when he mentioned the family.
His new found influence also allowed him to find out the real reason behind his birth parents deaths, the Nefaria family had ordered his adopted father to kill them and to make it look like an accident. Nicholas's father had refused to use his powers to help the Nefaria family. In a fit of rage, Nicholas almost beat his adopted father to death, but a voice in his head told him to show mercy and turn his adopted father into the police with the evidence that proved he was the murder. It was that day he resolved to leave the family and change.
He moved down to Florida and used all his money he had made to found an orphanage for troubled youths. The worst of the worst were welcome at his orphanage and never neglected. He hired the best care giver he could find to run the orphanage and the kindest support staff. The kids under his charge became model citizens with enough love and attention. The community even gave him an award for all the community service his charges did.
Helping troubled youths was not enough for him though. He needed to do more to write the wrongs he had done. To this end, he started the Kozloz Private Investigator service. It specialized in finding missing children, helping those who could not afford protection, and other odd tasks not done by the local law enforcement. The job came easy for Nicholas because of his extensive underground contacts and knowledge of the seedy underbelly of crime. He soon blossomed into the private investigator the poor people of his community turned to for help.
All of his charity and good works is only his public image. He is still addicted to poker and gambling. Without the protection of the Nefaria family, he is on his own for his gambling debts that quickly mount. His powers afford him some protection, but not complete immunity from the people he owes money. The winnings he makes go mostly to support his orphanage, but a small portion go to pay off his debts which always seem to come back.
He is an extremely nice and charming person. His eyes have a sad look in them though, almost as if he is being so nice to make up for some wrongs in his past. For the most part he stays away from vices such as prostitution and alcohol, but he cannot resist gambling. It is almost impossible for him to turn down a poker game unless there is an extremely compelling reason. He is the quintessential people person. When he is around the orphanage he owns in Flordia, he is extremely nice to the kids and is looked up to in the local community as a saint. He has little knowledge of computers preferring to use his laptop solely for note taking and picture processing purposes.
