Nicole "Nikki" Callaghan

Art Connoisseur and Procurement Specialist

Description:

irene.pngNikki is a svelte woman in elegant fashions. She is surveys the world from cold eyes, which her smiles rarely reach. She has lived in France and other european locals as the talented artist Yvette Mirage whose paintings fetch a nice living, but the works of Masters hang from her walls. They must be excellent copies as they are known to hang in museums. Nikki smirks at this observation.

As a child, Nikki traded away her attachments for greater skill in art. The Hedge has changed her. Things she touches seem to be brushed with a vibrant colored paint, which fades over a short time. She smells of sweet earth and rich oils and has the luminous look of a renaissance painting… with the brush strokes to match. Like the Girl with the Pearl Earring or the Mona Lisa, she seems to be smiling even when she is not.
