Character Development: Nicole “Nicky” Rochester

Who is Nicky Rochester?

In Nicky’s case, things are not really what they seem. While we won’t see her on the front page or starring in the main scenes, we don’t have to forget that Nicky is the owner of the bar that gives its name to the first book.

She is the daughter of the infamous mercenary Mikaela “The Roach” Rochester, a detail Nicky prefers to overlook when talking about herself. In fact, to everyone, and even to legal records, she’s just Nicky; she doesn’t even use her first name.

With a tumultuous childhood surrounded by violence, Nicky opted for a more relaxed adult life, far from the chaotic and traumatic environment in which her mother raised her.

Nicky knows how to get into people’s minds, and can get contracts for Eric Miller even from people he didn’t know needed help.
