Death[edit]

Players have made the conclusion that he was part of Intelser, the Clan operation that gathered the first intelligence for the Clan Grand Council circa 2980.

During his journey to the Inner Sphere, Nikolai piloted a pristine Star League Defense Force vintage NSR-9J Nightstar which upon recognizing was out of place in the LosTech depleted Succession Wars era was carefully hidden on HD-389202 in 2986.[3]

At the time of his death Nikolai was piloting a Victor.[1] His Victor was salvaged by the Black Inferno following his death and taken to their repair and refit base on Eaton, with his son defeating Inferno member Zavarov to reclaim the 'Mech. Cavalier chief tech Fahad Arazad would discover that the coordinates sought by the Black Inferno, were hidden heavily encrypted in the 'Mech's computer system. [4] Nikolai also rigged the Victor with a transponder that would react and could command the 'Mech bay containing his Nightstar to activate and open.[3]
