Nikolaos was the ruthless 1000+ year old master vampire of the city of St, Louis. Her human servant was Burchard, and her base of operations was an underground series of dungeons beneath The Circus of the Damned where her throne was located. She was slain by Anita Blake.

History[edit | edit source]

Early Life[edit | edit source]

Nikolaos was only a young child in the early stages of teenage puberty when she became a vampire under undisclosed circumstances some thousand or more years ago. A hundred years later, presumably by that time a master, she chose a man named Burchard, possibly an English soldier, to become her human servant, granting him extended life in return for his fealty. At some point they emigrated to the United States of America, eventually settling in St. Louis.

The most powerful vampire in the city, she became its master, ruling the city's undead with an iron hand, and laying claim to its wererat population as well, since rats were her animal to call.
