Meet the best friend, Niko.
At fourteen, Niko is a whole year younger than Kole, but his physique says otherwise. With broad shoulders, a trim athletic build, and a wisp of stubble along his jaw, he’s built for any adventure, yet his cautious nature holds him back.
Niko is content with his nose in his journal. He sketches and jots down notes of the ramblers, and stories of Kole’s life as a shepherd apprentice in hopes he can learn and earn his own apprenticeship next year.
Interesting fact: My brother named this character.
