Nicole is a typical example of a minor noble who thinks she is (or should be) more important then she really is. She is not involved in the family business, aside from using the money and contacts it generates to improve her own lifestyle.
Nicole is very much accustomed to getting her own way in just about any situation, and when she doesn’t get her own way, she slips into hysterics fairly quickly. She was born into a semi-noble family within Wilderhaven, and bettered her station by marrying Claudio. She was the primary mover in getting her daughter married into a noble family from Traft, which is one of new Perrenland’s major cities.
