Doctor Nicholai is a minor character in Megami Ibunroku Persona. In Revelations, he is known as Doctor Nicholas.
Megami Ibunroku Persona
Nicholai is a foreign scientist hired by Takahisa Kandori to create the DEVA System. Upon learning that his invention would be used for evil purposes, he tries to kill both Kandori and himself in order to atone. The protagonist is given the choice to either try to stop him or speed up the process. Either way, Nicholai will be interrupted by Aki, who then teleports Kandori and the party to Maki's Mikage-cho. Nevertheless, the protagonist's intention will affect the number of Ultimate Personas avaiable at the end of the game.
Nicholai is seen again after the party is teleported to Deva Yuga, where he has been put under Kandori's mind control spell thanks to the Chaos Mirror.
- Like Eriko Kirishima, Nicholai is fluent in English and often inserts English words in his speech. Being fluent, it is rendered in Roman characters rather than Japanese.
- In the manga, Nicholai's speech bubbles are read horizontally instead of vertically, just like western comics. When Kandori and Nanjo are talking to him, their speech bubbles are also read horizontally.
