1.  Appearance

Nier is wiry rather than well muscled, his build having come from intensive scouting and hunting. His muscle is more evident in his thighs, calves and shoulders, although it tends to be hidden underneath thick fur, especially in Lupus and Secui form. He gets his thick arctic fur from his mothers side of the family, his arctic heritage also meaning that he will never be a giant, staying average in height at 6'10", and one inch shorter than his brother.

This thicker fur often gives him a 'poofy' look. It is straight and very thick, being longer at his neck and shoulders, tail, groin, thighs and calves. This fur has thinned on his shoulders due to the crisscrossing scars that run from back to front there, leaving skin visible.

He usually carries himself with an air of openness; he is friendly to most and this shows through in his body language. There is often a smile on his face and a laugh waiting to to erupt.

4.  Relationships

4.1  Key Relations

  • Colibri Haki: Niernan's mate. Upon first meeting Colibri Nier developed a brief and fleeting crush on her as she was the first non-related female he had ever properly met. Over time, through the founding of Vinátta Niernan and Colibri became friends. He relished her kindness and quietness as a change from the big, brash wolves he was used to being around, he willingly shared secrets with her, she was one of the first he told when he was falling in love with Grace D'Angelo. After Grace's unexpected departure Coli comforted Nier, ending up staying the night and sparking off a mutual attraction that was buried in favour of staying friends. Though these romantic feelings could not be hidden forever; Coli confesses her feelings to Niernan and he admits he feels the same. They become mates.
  • Bran Stormbringer: Others have described Niernan's relationship with his brother as co-dependent, but he just sees it as brotherhood. Bran and Niernan were the best of friends growing up, they shared everything with each other and had no secrets. Niernan is one of the only wolves that knows of Bran's synaesthesia. Their only difference in opinion is that on cats. Bran hates them but most of all, Ciaran, Niernan's companion.
  • Saul Stormbringer: His cousin and good friend, Niernan sees Saul as more of a brother than a cousin. Saul and his infant son Temeraire, were the first wolves Niernan and Bran met upon reaching Souls. Nier and Saul became firm friends pretty quickly, finding that they had many similar interests and compatible traits. Niernan greatly respects Saul and is more than willing to follow his lead.
  • Lochlan Stormbringer: Niernan's first born child. Niernan adores his children and is immensely proud of them. Though usually pleased with Lochlan's liberal attitude, he can become frustrated with it due to Loch's views on the wolves of Sangi'lak.
  • Teagan Stormbringer: Niernan's second born child. She is his 'little girl' despite the fact that she is as boyish as a girl can get. He is proud of Teagan's accomplishments to date, pleased that she is getting out in the pack and making friends, and even more pleased that she is thinking of following him into his rank tier.
  • Shiloh Dawnbringer: His cousin and close friend. After initially being nervous about meeting Shiloh again, due to his disreputable actions in the Solbjorg, he finds that Shiloh is forgiving and playful. The two develop a strong friendship and discover a similar interest in their cat companions. Niernan helps Shiloh with her mute tortoiseshell queen, Muddy.
