Personality

Nico is a very cheerful and rather innocent young man. He rarely takes anything seriously and is seen happy-go-lucky. He is a huge anime fan. He is also rather effeminate, both in terms of appearance and personality. When meeting Hitoshi Sugoroku, whom he thought was a girl, he complimented his dress. Out of all his friends, he is arguably the easiest to apprehend with the only difficulty being his eccentric constitution, which causes him to have weird allergies and sicknesses. He is friendly and energetic, and one of the dumber members of his friends.

Rather childlike, he tends to complain when he doesn't get what he wants and can be irresponsible, at one point when on the run with Rock, he spent most of their money on an anime figurine. In addition, he states he doesn't know how to get a job or earn money. He prefers playing around with his friends and watching anime above all else. Later on, Nico appears to have an alternate personality.


Background

Born in the slums of America, he was born with an unusual constitution that gave him strange allergies and illnesses. He was arrested for carrying and selling drugs. However, when the doctors checked his body they discovered he did not digest any drugs and was more than likely used as an unwitting courier. He was sent to juvenile hall with a light sentence and was later sent to a medical reform school to receive intensive care. However, whenever doctors tried to examine his body to treat his unusual illnesses and allergies he would get frightened by the needles and their medicine and frequently broke out of several hospitals and jails, increasing his sentence time. He is currently sentenced for aggravated escape due to the extent of the damage.

At some point he met Jyugo at a prison and then later met Rock at a different prison and became good friends with him. Later he was captured and taken to Nanba Prison and since they have some of the best doctors and medical care in the world, the doctors there give him drugs and medicinal pills to treat his illnesses, he does not feel like escaping and ironically became somewhat a drug addict.

Trivia

  • His favorite colors are yellow and lime green.
  • He's allergic to buckwheat.[1]
  • Prior to going to Nanba Prison, he has never played video games.
  • He laughs in his sleep.
  • His name could be translated as "Second child" due to his status being the youngest of the group (or referring to his alternate personality). "Ni" means "Two" in Japanese and the "Ko" in his name might also be a reference to the five in his number as the Japanese word for five is "Go"(五) and "Go" and "Ko" have similar phonetic symbols in the Japanese language ("Go" being and "Ko" being コ).
  • Prior to meeting Jyugo, he was illiterate.
