Low-ranking member. Law enforcement liaison. (up for debate/discussion? Want something that people feel meshes well with the group)Personality:
Cold | stern | watchful | calculating | compulsive liar | explosive sudden bouts of rageBackstory:
Níðhöggr claims to be the serpent who once gnawed the roots of Yggdrasil. Of course, this is really hard to verify, considering Níðhöggr is a compulsive liar. Over the course of many years they have also claimed to be a reincarnated Persian king, the Greek god Hades, a retired Catholic priest, a Wiccan witch, and the inventor of Bitcoins. So...everything Nid says should be taken with a grain of salt.
That being said, what is clearly known is that Níðhöggr was alive during the Viking Age during the 8th century and was most likely a warrior then. When very drunk, Níðhöggr has consistently claimed that the powers that shaped the world "made them as a wyrm to gnaw the Great Tree, but I escaped my punishment." Implying that Níðhöggr did something to be punished, of course. Níðhöggr is, surprisingly, not fond of killing, but can sometimes have bouts of what look to be berserker rage at a moment's notice. Nid can, hypothetically, return to their wyrm shape, but Nid understands that shape has no purpose in a world of modern technology and endeavors to stick to their human shape. As a wyrm, mostly Nid's strengths are a vicious bite and crushing constriction...but Nid will rarely, if ever, take this shape.
Níðhöggr feeds on fear and heartache, and so they endeavor to cause such things among victims, often staying long enough to drink their tears if they can do so uninterrupted. Níðhöggr does not necessarily kill humans...well, not often, at least. As such, Nid has inserted themselves as a low-ranking police officer in the city...all the better to both get away with crime and to relish being first on the scene at the worst humanity has to offer. It also lets them make the best use of their ability to lie well; they can sometimes cover up a crime or two of the Family's. Nid is loyal to the Family, but often they have to try to reign in that tendency to lie from time to time...and Nid isn't always successful at this.Notes:
Nid uses 'they' pronouns, but does not object to masculine ones.Ons and Offs: Link!
Nid is a different character than my usual. They gravitate to voyeurism and inflicting humiliation the most. They have a fixation on oral sex and masturabtion (with the right person), but they dislike any form of penetrative sex. Nid is also fascinated with bondage and knifeplay, either giving or receiving, but as yet has not ever participated in such things. Nid has little concept of or preference about genders.
