Alert:|| He learned to be ready for anything all the time when he lived outside the Regions. Without a Region to protect his back, he learned to do it himself. He's very skeptical about others and is sometimes a bit too keen on being ready for attack. Borderline paranoid.
Brave:|| He has always been a brave cat, since his siblings moved away and he had less competition growing up. He became a bit bolder and was able to stand up for himself. He doesn't have many fears.
Adamant:|| Nicodemus is extremely stubborn and hates it when others try to change his mind about something. He doesn't take orders too well, but is working on accepting his place.
Pessimistic:|| He seems to rain on the parade a lot and doesn't look on the bright side of things very often.
Reckless:|| He doesn't think about what he does before doing it very often. He's a bit clumsy and ends up breaking things. Despite training to be Healer, he's quick to jump into battle, and can be a bit on the violent side.
Bitter:|| Since he grew up practically alone, he isn't very good at socializing and usually likes to be alone. He tends to be grumpy and doesn't do well in large crowds. He gets a little uncomfortable and jumpy. His default mood is unhappy.
Short-tempered:|| He's easy to upset and gets angry pretty easily, which only feeds his antisocial nature. It doesn't help his recklessness, either.
Impatient:|| Probably not the best thing for a Healer, Nicodemus isn't very patient. He knows he has to be, though, and is trying to get used to it.
Good traits:|| Brave, true to his word, alert, strong
Neutral traits:|| Adamant, determined
Bad traits:|| Reckless, short-tempered, pessimistic
**Subject to change by roleplay. Will probably get more positive traits later.

1 ll She's my mother. I can't ever forgive her for everything she did to me and my family. She was never much of a mother to me.
1 ll He was the best cat I've ever met. He was enough of a parent to make up for Osmatine several times over. I wish he had survived to come back to the Regions with me. I'm sure the North would have welcomed him back.
1 ll He's our Leader. He let me into the Region, so I guess I owe him for that.

Nicodemus' father was a Crafter from the North, but his mother was a Warrior from the West. They met under bad circumstances, when Roark had accidentally crossed into West territory. Osmatine chased him out, leaving Roark with a scar on his nose to remember it. The next time they met was at a gathering between the Regions, and Osmatine was in a better mood that day. They ended up chatting for a little while before announcements started. After that, they seemed to run into each other a lot more. They started meeting up in the Neutral Territory to talk, until one day Osmatine told Roark she would be leaving the Regions. She had never particularly liked her life in the West Region, and she had always been more of an independent cat, so she didn't really fit in with her Region and didn't have many friends. Roark said he would go with her, and the next day they went missing. They did just fine living on their own, just the two of them, and they decided they would be able to support kits; three months later, Osmatine gave birth to four kits.
Life as a Traveler
The litter was originally three kits, all of which were healthy and strong. A few days later, Nicodemus was born as the runt of the litter. He was smaller than his littermates, but he didn't seem sickly, so Osmatine and Roark continued to care for him. Candice, his only sister, was dark brown, like his father. Fir was mainly a chocolaty color with a white splash on his chest. Adam was white and brown, a mix of both parents. Nicodemus looked most like his mother, inheriting her tabby markings, and ended up with a couple orange patches from her calico pelt. His siblings grew up a lot stronger than he did, and he often missed meals because his littermates got to all the food before he did. He was a rather weak kit and his mother began to despise him, as Travelers couldn't support the weak without a Region to help them. Osmatine was a very strict cat, and often came off as cruel and apathetic. She was a strong believer in discipline, which she distributed for every blunder made by any of her kits. Roark was kinder and liked to praise the kits rather than lash out at them, so naturally Nicodemus and his siblings grew attached to Roark more than Osmatine. As the kits grew up, they began to notice that their parents argued a lot. Roark had a lot more morale than Osmatine did, and Osmatine seemed to be getting crueler and less understanding the longer they were together. Her discipline became harsher and she started to harm her kits in order to teach them. Most of Nicodemus' scars came from these incidents. When he was 4 or so months, his siblings had already begun training with their parents and were planning on living on their own soon. Nicodemus was still the weakest out of them, but Roark was patient and had started to teach him how to hunt and fight. At the age of 8 months, Osmatine lashed out at his siblings during one of their battle sessions, resulting in them getting into a heated argument about cruelty and going over the top. The three of them left together the next day, taking two of Osmatine's Ability Stones and one of Roark's with them, one for each of them. With Nicodemus being the only one of their kits left, he began to get more food and better care, primarily from his father, since Osmatine wasn't the motherly type. Once he started getting proper care without competition, he started to get a little stronger, so Roark began to train him more vigorously. He proved to have a knack for fighting, and was able to keep up with his dad's lessons easily. He wasn't so good at hunting, but he managed to get by. Eventually Roark convinced Osmatine to give one of her Ability Stones to Nicodemus so he could start learning how to use his Element. He was almost 9 months old at the time, so it would have been about time for him to start. He ended up getting Burning Paws, which was useful for getting through a normal day as a Traveler. Osmatine had started seeing another cat, and soon enough she returned home expecting kits; ones that weren't fathered by Roark. Fascinated by the process of creating life naturally, Nicodemus attempted to touch his mother's belly. Turned out she wasn't very fond of being touched. She struck him, beginning an argument between the three of them. Roark had a problem with Osmatine having two mates, Nicodemus had couple scratches on his muzzle to be angry about, and Osmatine was as temperamental as usual. Before long, claws were out. Osmatine started a fight with Roark, deciding that the best way to solve the issue. He had never been the best fighter, since he had grown up a Crafter in the Regions, and Osmatine easily overpowered him, as she had been trained as a Warrior. The fight ended when Osmatine ripped Roark's main Ability Stone off of his necklace and smashed it. Nicodemus distinctly remembered watching the life drain out of his father in an instant, crumpling to the ground without a hitch. Osmatine then sent her son off to go live on his own. With one mate dead, she had another family to tend to, and she wasn't compelled to support the runt of her first litter for the rest of his life. Nicodemus watched his mother walk off with her tail high, then began to bury his father.
The day after he buried his father, he woke up in his makeshift nest next to his grave. He had decided to head for the Regions. His father had told him and his littermates stories of them, and how much he loved living there, growing up in a place full of cats who considered you a friend and helped you when you were sick. Nicodemus knew better than to try to live on his own, since he had never been very good at hunting and got sick pretty easily. He wouldn't live too long if he tried to continue the lifestyle he was living then. Taking only his Ability Stone and a strip of red leather his father always wore tied around his paw, he set out south, where his parents had journeyed from before he was born. Other than the direction to go, he had no lead, but he saw it as his only option. The trek wasn't terribly long, only about a month and a half, so Nicodemus was able to survive the way there. He was a little worse for wear by the end of it, but he had made it. With no clue what to expect, he ventured into the territory. All the snow was a little overwhelming, and he couldn't exactly say that he liked the stuff. There had been a little bit of it when he was born in the mountains, and he was never fond of it. He liked warmer weather. A little discouraged, he continued into the territory for a little while before being found by Northerners.
Nicodemus was promptly attacked upon entering the Regions, and he fought back until he was knocked off his paws and pinned down, outnumbered. He was questioned at the point of a claw, and he answered as vaguely as possible, wishing to speak to whoever led the cats. Eventually he convinced them to take him to their camp, where he was greeted with stares from the surrounding Region members. Irritated, he tried to ignore them as he made his way to the den he was told to go to. There he met Iorek, the Leader of the North Region, who he explained who he was and how he got there to. When he was done with his story, he asked to be allowed into the Regions. His last request was that Iroek didn't share his past with the Region, for personal privacy. Considering the snow that was upon them, and what had happened to him outside, he agreed to let him in, as long as he began training and obeyed orders. He got a briefing on how the Regions worked, and gave Nicodemus his options. He could train to be a Warrior, Searcher, Hunter, Tamer, Crafter, or Healer. He immediately rejected being a Warrior, as he knew that was what his mother had been. He then decided not to be a Crafter, either, since that was what his father had been. And despite wanting to remember Roark, he didn't think he could follow in his dad's footsteps. He was a bit too reckless and violent to be a Tamer, which was a more peaceful profession and would require patience from him. He thought that it sounded boring, anyways, along with being a Searcher. With only two options left, he chose Healer, because it was the exact opposite from what his mom had been. He really didn't care for treating the sick or the injured; at the time, he only wanted to spite Osmatine. He already had an Ability Stone, which would usually be given to him when he became a Rookie, so some confusion ensued. The result was Nicodemus receiving an Ability Stone anyways. He got Rock Heater, which he couldn't help but feel cross about, since he considered it to be useless. Seeing as there was only one Healer in the Region, he became her second Rookie until her first Rookie graduated. Due to living outside the Regions and having to walk to the North, he was older than the usual Rookie, starting his training at 10 months old.
