Yet she is very fun loving and her animal nature shows in a lot of her habits, including her fondness for physical contact. She has never had a real relationship or even a friend and as such is often quick to engage in the physical but runs from emotional entanglements.Brief History
: Nikki is the daughter of two California based bounty hunters, a human (father) and a weretiger (mother). When Nikki was 5, she and her parents went on a vacation. They chose a nice forest location in Canada and set up camp well away from traditional camp sites so that her mother would have some freedom to indulge in her tiger form. One night while they were camping Nikki became curious and wandered away from the campsite straight into the path of large grizzly bear. Her mother rushed up to save her and instead took the swipe that would have killed Nikki. Her mother died before they could get help.
After that her father threw himself into his work, going after increasingly dangerous individuals and all but ignoring his daughter, who he pawned off on his sister more often than not. After Nikki had her first change at age 12 and had time to adjust, she decided to bridge the gap between her father and herself by helping him with skip tracing. While it was painful for him to be around her at first, as she reminded him of her mother, he grudgingly took her under his wing and showed her the ropes. Her innate abilities only helped their success. However, as a result of their constant trips and time spent investigating, she often missed school and ended up not graduating high school. At 17, Nikki got her GED and joined her father's company officially as a secretary despite the fact that she helped her father with actual traces.
One night six months ago, her father went out alone and didn't return. She never did learn what happened to him, he seemed to have vanished without a trace. However, her investigation into his disappearance attracted the attention of a local Werewolf pack. Eventually word of her was sent to some mysterious vampire and after dodging two abduction attempts, the second one just barely, she packed up her stuff, shut down her father's business, and headed out of town. She didn't stop until she'd reached the other end of the country. Using her savings she finally settled in Bangor but she has been looking over her shoulder ever since.Ons
