Not to be confused with Nicolas Elve.
"I've now spent two-thirds of my life in the Thieves Guild. Half my life as guildmaster. A third of it with the merchant lords of Abah's Landing well and truly under our thumb. More than a hundred thieves at my command, and dozens more associates who will never comprehend their part in what I've built."

Nicolas is an Imperial thief. He is the former guildmaster of the Abah's Landing Thieves Guild. He serves as the main antagonist of The Elder Scrolls Online: Thieves Guild.

Background Edit

Having served as the Guildmaster of the Thieves Guild, Nicolas commanded great respect and power from his guild members, who looked up to him for guidance. Under his reign, the guild soared to great heights and most of the veteran members saw the organization as a tight-knit family whose influence scared even Abah's Landing's merchant lords.

Following a failed heist in Taneth involving Magnifica Falora's dowry inside her family tomb, Nicolas was believed to have been killed, though in truth it is revealed he betrayed the guild and faked his death. He is later found imprisoned in the No Shira Citadel by the Iron Wheel.

He was supposed to be shipped off to Taneth to face justice but was reportedly thrown off the ship and lost to the waves. He survived the incident and left his past life of thieving and intrigue for good, having promised marriage to an unsuspecting widow named Volunidai and living in her mansion away from civilization.

Nicolas later claimed that he had not intended to betray the guild at all, but due to everyone not acting as they should such as Velsa retiring and Zeira not returning to the guild earlier to warm them of the Iron Wheel, the Thieves Guild was decimated and left ruined by the invading police force.

His fate if left to the Vestige's decision; who can choose to kill him for vengeance for the guild, or leave him alive and decide whether or not to reveal to Volunidai of his past expoits.


Forever Hold Your PeaceEdit

The Thieves Guild wishes to crash Merchant Lord Cosh's wedding ceremony inside Hubalajad Palace and prevent him from marrying Magnifica Falorah. Zeira suspects Nicolas is behind it all.

Prison BreakEdit

Nicolas can be found in Zeira's presumed cell block in the No Shira Prison. The Vestige is given the option of deciding his fate, though it is recommended to consult with the guild members beforehand.

The One That Got AwayEdit

Zeira tasks the Vestige with finding Nicolas whom she believes survived an accident on the ship that was supposed to carry him to Taneth.
