Nicky is the cousin of Andrew and Aaron. He is not on good terms with his parents, who refuse to accept his sexuality, and because of this he studied in Germany for a year. While he was there, he met Erik, who was a part of his ‘host family.’ He would eventually begin a commited relationship with Erik, which he continued even after he went back to America and started college.
Birthday: May 23
Eyes: Dark Brown
Family Life: Nicky is the only son of Luther and Maria Hemmick. His mother was ‘rescued’ from Mexico by his father, a Bapsitst minister, while he was doing volunteer work in Ensenada. Nicky was born and raised in Columbia, South Carolina.
Germany: Nicky struggled to understand his sexuality in his religious household, and because of this, Nicky would spend his senior year of high school on a study abroad program in Stuttgart, Germany. While in Germany, he would meet his host brother, Erik Klose, who he would gradually form a relationship with. Nicky would return to America only long enough to graduate from high school and come out to his unsupportive parents, and then he would return to Germany and live with Erik until his aunt Tilda died, and he would come back to help keep an eye on his cousins, Andrew and Aaron.
Foxes: During his time with his cousins, Nicky was attacked in front of a nightclub by four men. Andrew came to his defense and nearly beat them to death in an effort to defend Nicky, which put him in legal trouble. Nicky intended to only stay in America until the twins finished high school, but was offered a position as a backliner for the Foxes by Coach Wymack, a choice which Erik supported wholeheartedly. Because of the time he took off between high school and college, although Nicky is only a $@#&%?! during the series, he is the oldest member on the team.
Character: Nicky is generally cheerful and happy. He is easily upset by the tragedies that many of his teammates experience during the series. He attempts to get along with everyone, though he sticks with Andrew’s lot during most of the series. He is closest with Aaron. Nicky speaks fluent German, due to his stay in Germany. Aaron and Nicky enjoy video games. Nicky teaches Neil to play video games in this room (a horror game). When he meets Neil, Nicky is immediately interested in him and tries to find out whether he is gay. He continues to flirt with him until Andrew puts a stop to it. Nicky likes movies and gossip about them.
