"It's all about doing a good job and not letting your team down. I don't go seeking personal glory - you'll never get to the top with that mindset." — Nikolai

Nikolai, or 'Nick' as he's known affectionately by his teammates, is the oldest member of Team Gun Striders and also the one with the most battle experience. Due to his age, he is usually referred to as the 'old man' of the group, a title that he finds both endearing and highly annoying depending on the context.

Without Nikolai's well-armoured IS-3 to protect them, the rest of the Gun Striders would have been easy prey for every other team in the arena. He’s fond of guiding his heavy tank fearlessly into close combat, relying on its resilient armour to keep his foes occupied while his teammates move into position and begin their assault.
