Sissy colette_icon.gif Alibi The relationship Nicole has with her baby sister is a complicated one. Nicole took the teenager into her home once she was able to support herself, rescuing her from the abusive home life they'd both been subjected to. Over the years, Nicole lost and found Colette multiple times. While Nicole had the job as the Daniel Linderman's left hand - literally a life of organized crime - it turns out that Colette's affiliations were the most dangerous. While Nicole at first didn't approve of her sister's affiliations with the Ferrymen, due to fear for her safety, she was eventually drawn in as well, changing her life forever, and finally allowing her to understand what drives Colette.

Colette was present for the birth of Nicole's daughter, for which Nicole is eternally grateful. They finally arrived at a place where they had a grown-up love, rather than the distortion that was shaped for them by their upbringing. When Colette decided to join the war, Nicole went with her. It was Colette who eventually convinced Nicole to transition from the front lines to a position as a tactician. After the war, Nicole supported Colette's decision to carry on with Wolfhound. At least until everything went pear-shaped and Colette went on an insane solo mission with disastrous results. Nicole wants to protect Colette more than anything, but isn't sure how anymore.
Princess ingrid_icon.gif Default Ingrid is Nicole's daughter with Ben Ryans from an alternative future that will never be. Before she knew Ingrid's true identity, she felt a strong connection with the girl. Realizing she was her daughter put some of that connection in perspective. Nicole thinks Ingrid is brave, fiercely intelligent, and incredibly capable. She knows that the future version of herself that was mother to Ingrid did not make life easy for the girl. It's a strong source of guilt she hasn't earned the blame for, and she's determined to make up for the sins of her other self.
Pipsqueak pippa_icon.gif N/A Pippa is Nicole's (other) daughter with Ben Ryans, from this timeline. She would move heaven and earth for her. In this time, she may never have wanted to be a mother, but Nicole wouldn't take back the birth of her daughter for anything. The little girl can be a handful at times, but she wants for very little and has no doubt that she is loved by her mother and her entire extended family. Nicole spoils her maybe just a little. Phillipa Allyn Varlane is named for three men who died saving the world: Howard Phillips, Allen Rickham, and Magnes Varlane.
Tasha tasha_icon.gif Default Sissy's girlfriend. One of them. Wife? Nicole still isn't quite sure how her sister's relationships work, but she's come to accept them as being what they are. Tasha is a intelligent young woman who makes Colette happy, and that's all Nicole really needs to understand. Tasha is the one other person who can match Nicole for concern regarding Colette, and she makes for a handy sanity check when she's not sure if she's overreacting to her sister's latest stunt.
Tamara tamara_icon.gif Default Sissy's girlfriend? Other wife? Nicole knows precious little about Tamara, but she knows that she makes Colette happy, and that's all that matters to her.
Ben ryans_icon.gif Default Ben and Nicole shared a brief connection fueled by dreams of a future that no longer exists. Their mutual desire for happiness brought them together, and they created a child together. They broke up before her birth, but it was a mutual parting of ways, a realization that they didn't have the shared life experiences to keep them together that existed in that future. Now, they have a very companionable relationship and co-parent their daughter with little to no conflict.
Carrot Cake delia_icon.gif Default Delia is Ben's second daughter. Nicole's relationship with her is that of friends, and not of a step-mother and step-daughter, despite Nicole being the mother of Delia's baby sister(s). They've had their differences in the past, but Nicole adores the young woman she's nicknamed Carrot Cake and is grateful to have her in her and her daughter's lives.
Lucey Goose lucille_icon.gif Default Ben's first daughter, Lucille honestly worries Nicole in the way that Colette used to worry her. Nicole sees Lucille as reckless, too daring for her own good, but believes that her heart is ultimately in the right place. None of this makes her dislike the woman, she just has concern for her safety. The fact that see and 'Letty are colleagues does go some way to easing her mind.
Brad russo_icon.gif Default It's complicated.

Nicole was a fan of Brad Russo's show The Advocate for years before she had the chance to meet him. A woman who's rubbed elbows with presidents, and she was starstruck. The two became fast friends, especially owing to the fact that they had very similar vices and often little inclination to suppress them. When Nicole thought she might be about to be disappeared by the government, Brad concocted a plan to keep her in the public eye, thus making it incredibly difficult for her to vanish without suspicion. He proposed to her on live television during his Christmas Special. The two kept up their façade for a time before ultimately dissolving due to their love for other people. After all this time, Nicole still greatly admires Brad. Now that he's one of her colleagues with the SESA, she hopes they can recover some of the lost dynamic of their friendship.

Also, he is apparently dating one of her best friends.

Also, he happens to be Ryans' son, making her mother to Brad's half-sister.

Told you it was complicated.
Benji benji_icon.gif Default Benji is Delia's daughter from the same future Ingrid comes from, which Nicole supposes makes her Benji's grandmother. That's kind of weird, honestly, so she doesn't think about it much. Nicole doesn't know all that much about her, but her ability is similar to her mother's, and she shared a strong bond with Howard. Nicole regards Benji as family and hopes they can become better acquainted as time goes on.

Cooking Nicole's prowess in the kitchen is unfortunately not attributed to innate ability, but to trained skill. She had a great teacher and is able to prepare a variety of dishes and not only make them taste good, but also make them works of art. Her pot pies are to die for.

Organization: Nobody has a head for dates and times like Nicole. Aside from being inseparable from her affectionately termed CrackBerry, Nicole is especially good with recalling where those in her charge need to be, when, and what for. Her desk is immaculate. She never has to ask if anyone's seen her keys.

Persuasion: Nicole has a sort of knack not so much for getting people to do what she wants, but to make people want the same things she wants. She's a shark when it comes to negotiations and does very well when it comes time to barter at the market.

Photography: A holdover from her previous life as Steve Caiati, Nicole would never give up her career for one in photography, but she has an eye for aesthetics and lighting, which makes for some good pictures.

Firearms: Living in New York City and working for someone with dirty hands for years had made a basic understanding of firearms essential for Nicole. Entering the war only caused her to further this particular talent. Nicole feels just as comfortable with her .22 as she does with a hunting rifle or a semi-automatic. She's not about to win any marksmanship competitions, but with enough bullets to spray, precision only matters so much. Her preference is still for her pistol, however, at close range.

Strategy: Battlefield or boardroom, Nicole is adept at gathering information from her various political and remaining underworld resources and using the intelligence to help her draft a plan of battle for the skirmish to come. Before she was the one developing the plans, she was the one enacting them, allowing those with better judgement to guide her through them.
