- —In-game description.
Commonly referred to as "Father" by the town villagers, Nikolai is the founder of Wygol Village in Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia. He cares for nothing more than the villagers' happiness and will often offer guidance to Shanoa throughout the events that take place in the game.
He won't give her any quests; however, he will reward her with the Master Ring in gratitude once she has completed all of the villagers' quests; that is, when she has fulfilled all of their hopes and dreams.
