A mysterious woman with her own agenda, catches Xander’s eye when she moves to town, temporarily distracting him from the painful death of his father.
Her family is mainly military-oriented and her father wanted her along with her older brother to enroll in the military. Even though her father forbade her to do anything that would "ruin her academic reputation" she secretly played video games. One day when her brother was enlisted to Iraq, he was hit by an IED but thankfully, he survived. She got enlisted on a project that dealt with "exotic" stem cells (which was later revealed to be work on Merfolk), and she volunteered to help out.
Nicole is a pretty, attractive young woman with a slender body with a slight curve at her torso. She has tan skin, dark eyes, and long, flowing, black hair that goes down her shoulders
Under the guise of a civilian, Nicole displays curiosity and later affection towards Xander, even up to the point that they have sex together. In reality, she is very secretive as she is working undercover for the military as she resumes the military's plans for the merpeople.

|“||I been tracking and I was led straight to the alpha. You should see this one. She's highly evolved, rational even. Which leaves me to reconsider the strategy. It feels misguided to capture by force. If I can convince her to come willingly, I think we'll get a lot more out of her.||”|
