Nicodemus Alehill is a young Halfling born just over the border in the Five Shires to a family with a history of being Krondar and trail guards. He grew up making the trip between Nob’s Boots and Karameikos to sell grain and foodstuffs in the markets of Karameikos. Three years ago, his family’s caravan was raided by troops from the Black Eagle, claiming the caravan was bringing weapons to Traladaran rebels. Nicodemus’ brother was seriously wounded and barely escaped with his life. Nicodemus was captured and enslaved in the Barony. He bided his time and found a connection to the Immortal Nob Nar, eventually becoming a caretaker of the Halfling slaves. He was brought of the Barony on the way to a Thyatian slave market by Iron Ring operatives when their camp was attacked by the Company of the White Stag. Nicodemus helped free his fellow slaves and aided the rescuers with his sword and spells. He has since sworn to serve the one who freed him, Varis.

Nicodemus is a fierce fighter with a sharp tongue and sharper sword. He is a keen observer and a skilled healer but his sarcasm sometimes creeps out at the wrong time. Sarcasm is his defense mechanism, for he is secretly a hopeless romantic and optimist. He is unswervingly loyal to the Company and Varis in particular. Nicodemus wears studded leather armor over a Traladaran style shirt and vest. His breeches are worn just past the knee and usually tucked into soft boots of Elven make. Nicodemus generally dresses in muted colors like grey and navy, but his grey cloak has a bright red lining and fur trim. He serves the Company as a healer, diplomat and spy. He aids Naomi and Anton in stealthy endeavors and is a competent archer but prefers his sword and throwing daggers.
