    Appearance:
    Aleksei has dark hair, green eyes and a fair complexion. He is an average build for an eleven year old and stands very below average for his age at four feet, three inches. He is right handed. Aleksei tends to dress in clothes suitable for a boy in his age and social class.
    History:
    1874: Aleksei is born to a British Ministry Official and his Russian wife. He is named Aleksei after his maternal grandfather and Nathan after his father.

    1876: Aleksei gains a sister who is named Karina.

    1880: Aleksei gains a brother who is named Kenneth.

    1881: Aleksei seemingly becomes the center of odd happenings. The family isn't sure what to make of it and ultimately decide they are imaging things or Aleksei and his siblings are just making stuff up.

    1883: Aleksei gains a sister who is named Gail.

    1885: A strange man comes to the Nichols household. He explains that the odd happenings that occurred around Aleksei was magic. Alekseis parents are proud of this occurrence as they firmly believe that it means Aleksei is meant for special things. All geared up with his new supplies and things (including a wand), Aleksei is all set for his life as a wizard.

    On the train, he meets Jason Zakarian and they immediately become best friends. They are rather inseperable, rather quickly, and it is rare to find one without the other.
