Just as Jason Voorhees doesn’t give those he chases a chance to think of what to do next nor does Nikola Machiavelli.
The only clue Nikola gives he’s up to something deviant is the infamous Machiavellian smile.
In one book, Nikola tells Ana he can’t help how he smiles when she tells him to stop with the creepy smiling. He says it’s hereditary. Maybe, but Nikola enjoys using it to creep people out.
Niccolò di Bernardo dei Machiavelli was once just as his distant descendant Nikola. He started out in life a good wholesome boy but the world turned him into something it couldn’t handle.
What makes Nikola different from the many warlocks before him is that he didn’t seek out this power. It came one day it was either fight back or die. So he fought back to live and learned his true strength and kept on using it.
The moral story behind the wrecking of the life of Nikola is: Let good people stay as good, sweet, and kind as they are because if they turns to the other end of the spectrum you aren’t going to like it and you may not be able to control them. Because most truly good people are very highly intelligent. They can out think you with all your evilness and brawl.
