Nikolai (commonly referred to as Father Nikolai by the town villagers) is the founder of Wygol Village in Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia. He cares for nothing more than the villagers' happiness and he 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 Shanoa has fulfilled all of the villagers' desires, that is, when she has completed all of their quests.
