Sabrina asks him to sneak her into the library so that she can read one of her father's journals. Nick says that they'll get caught be expelled. Sabrina doesn't think she'd be expelled but her stay would be extended for longer. Nick asks if that's such a bad thing before Sabrina leaves.

Physical Appearance

Nicholas has black hair, brown eyes and olive skin. He seems to prefer to wear dark clothing.


Nicholas appears as a cool confident warlock with more progressive ideas than most other members of the Church of Night. Like Sabrina, he expressed his opinion that the Feast of Feasts was "bonkers" and was in staunch objection to the barbaric practice. Nicholas showed a laid back and confident demeanor most of the time while occasionally expressing a morose outlook towards the witch community, telling Sabrina that "Witches are aces at passion and lust but when it comes to love, not so much". Adding that "Our dark lord is a jealous lord. He won't allow us to love anyone but him. selfish isn't it"? Expressing envy towards Sabrina and Harvey's ability to "give themselves entirely to one another".

In terms of Nick's romantic and sexual interests he seems to practice a polyamorous view of relationships. He was in a relationship with all three Weird Sisters at once before ending it due to not being sure what was real or suggested through their mind control magic and engaged in an orgy with Prudence Night and several other witches and warlocks. When he expressed a romantic interest in Sabrina she reminded him that she had a boyfriend, to which he suggested that she date both of them, further clarifying that he was "down with sharing". Nicholas has expressed an overall kindness and affection for Sabrina and a willingness to assist her with her mortal exploits with no expectation of anything in return. He suggested to Harvey that he forgive Sabrina because she truly loved him, despite having romantic feelings for her himself. Showing that he is a true friend and ally to Sabrina.

Sabrina Spellman


Nick befriends Sabrina rather quickly, even showing a romantic interest in her, but she declines his advances, often reminding him of her mortal boyfriend Harvey Kinkle. Nevertheless, they remain friends. However, when the mining accident occurs, and Agatha and Dorcas talk about the dead miners, he seems keen on knowing if Harvey was one of the unlucky ones, implying he's still enamored by Sabrina.

Weird Sisters


Nick used to date Prudence, Agatha and Dorcas in a polyamorous relationship. However, he ended the relationship due to the sisters' mind controlling abilities, making it impossible for him to determine what was real and what was suggestion. Despite breaking off their relationship, Nick still remains somewhat cordial with the sisters, even engaging in an orgy with them and Sabrina's cousin Ambrose.
