Call of Dragons: Nico – Skills, Talent Trees and Hero Pairs 2023

Eyes of Daybreak



An ace Royal Artillerist of the elite Daybreak Squadron. His eyes never lose sight of their target – though his thoughts are usually occupied by questions of mechanics. As a Fleetfoot Halfling born in Elmdale in 1136, he abandoned assassin training due to a fear of blood in 1168. He passed selected and joined the Halfling Ballista Squadron known as Daybreak in 1191, and took a leadership role during an emergency, successfully destroying a Darkling Fort in 1196.

As far back as Nico can remember, he has always had to compete with his twin sister Nika, usually at her insistence: who could eat the fastest, who could reach the highest tree branch, who could dodge more traps in training, who could climb the hill fastest…

There was only one moment where Nico felt at ease: discussing theoretical matters with his father, while his sister’s eyes glazed over. Once they had gone to bed, Nika would poke her sleeping brother and demand he give her a simplified explanation of everything they were supposed to have learned.

For Nico, developing a phobia of blood was the straw that broke the camel’s back. Unable to bear his training any longer, he left his potential life as an assassin behind, unsure of what the future might bring.

From time to time, Nico would look back on the times he spent with his sister, perched in the branches of a tree, scanning the horizon. Back then, for just a moment, they were still on the same path.

But his reminiscence never grew into regret. Nico knew full well that he and his sister were fated to live entirely different lives.
