Full Name: Narcissa Nicole Nooks
Birthday: April 1
Showdown ID: WIP
Starter Pokemon: Female Pikachu named Mr. Sparky.
Appearance: Nikki is a petite teenager with shoulder length blond hair and straight bangs. Her most notable features are her doe-like grey eyes. Her fashion sense is sometimes considered quirky.
Personality: Nikki is a little ditzy. She doesn't have book smarts but she is very sensitive to other people's feelings. This allows her to make friends easily but also has the drawback of making her easily influenced. Because of her unusual upbringing she is a bit quirky and sometimes views situations differently than others. She is optimistic. She loves to party and is rarely bothered by responsibilities.
Her mother, Nancy, is a fashion designer who often travels on months long business trips. She is very driven to succeed in her career. She was swept up in the fast paced world of fashion and fame. As a single mother she cares greatly for her daughter's financial security but as a result spends little time with Nikki.
Her father, Norman, was a soldier who left home when she was very young and never came back. He was a strict man who believed that pokemon ought to be used as tools to better peoples lives. He was a patriotic man who loved his family.
Her primary caregiver has been her aging Grandmother. She was a loving and kind woman with a free spirit. She often allowed Nikki to skip school so they could bake cookies or explore the fields around Pallet Town.
History: Nikki is a native of Pallet Town. Her childhood was a happy one, even if it was somewhat unconventional. She grew up in a nice house with a loving mother and father until the age of six. She remembers her birthday as the day her father left to join the war, although she had no idea what that meant. Her mother became increasingly depressed over the next couple of years. Many of the adults in town gave them odd looks and Nikki being so young couldn't understand. She never knew that her father had joined Team Rocket. However, her mother knew and so did many of the townspeople. Her mother was determined to shake off the shame her husband's decision and prove she was an independent woman. Soon she started designing clothes and launched a career that had her traveling often.
The child always figured that because her father left on April fools day that the things he said must have been a joke. She was frustrated that her mother didn't understand he was coming back. She was glad to see her happy again when she started designing, but she did miss her terribly. Her sadness was short lived as she was left in the care of her Grandmother. The old woman was free spirited and didn't see any real value in a standard education. Therefore, Nikki was never disciplined to do homework and while she was quite popular in school she never excelled at learning. She often failed to pay attention in class or skipped it altogether. It was a happy time for Nikki even when her grandma developed dementia. She would tell the teenager wild stories about encounters with celebrities she didn't know or with Pokémon that didn't exist. Nikki was too naïve to understand that her grandmother was not well and simply believed her stories.
Nikki came home from school to find her grandmother lying still on the couch. She decided to go on about her day as usual and let her grandmother rest. The next day no one told her to go to school. So, she stayed home. After three days a kind of numbness washed over her as reality began to sink in. She didn't know what to do so she left the house and began wandering around Pallet Town aimlessly.
