Ahhh, thank you for the comment!! I personally also really enjoy Nikolai, he's so absolutely terrible that it makes him great fun to write! Our artist/lead developer designed him before we decided on his personality, so we kind of just went with something that matched his glamorous aesthetic. Thank you for playing!!
ow wow, I thought it was the other way around (character -> design)! But either way it worked out great!
I have a spoiler question about the alkonost-gender thing ;D is it OK to ask here or better wait?))
