Personal History
Born two years after Steven, as the youngest sibling, Nikki was considered the baby of the group. She found her sister and brother quite overbearing, and it caused many problems in her youth. However, Nikki and Ashley grew very close, and began entertaining themselves by teasing their brother. Steven didn't really mind, and Nikki felt close to him as well. Admittedly, their relationship was strained at first, due to the fact that their father was an abusive jerk, and Steve was the only one with the stones to stand up to him. granted, a five-year-old will not make much of a difference, but Steve felt obligated to protect his sisters, and Nikki began to see him as a protector, a safe place where she could run and hide when she needed to.
Grade school passed in a blur to Nikki, as the three siblings grew together, and became a tight-knit group. No bullies ever bothered the Rowland children, because if one was having a problem, the other two would jump in and help. Thugs and jerks would shake in their high-tops as Steve walked by, and Nikki would usually be right there in his shadow. If Steve was not around, Ashley would be Nikki's protection.
High school was a hard time for Nikki, especially in the later years. Without Steve and Ashley, Nikki was forced to work harder to avoid the people that wanted to cause her harm. She graduated twenty-eighth in her class, and joined the Air Force with her brother.
After training, Nikki and Steve were assigned to the 23rd platoon, the Black Dogs. In 2000, Nikki failed a psychiatric evaluation, and was dismissed from the USAF on suspicion of mental instability. Outraged, she went to her hometown, and started vandalizing stores. This little incident was hard on her brother, and was part of what caused him to leave the USAF. The death of Ashley was hard on Nikki, and made her closer to her brother than ever before. After the tragedy, she became a journalist, and has now moved to Nachton at her brother's request. She hopes to settle down and be happy in this little city.
