General Thoughts

Maritime Strategist Nichol is a 6-star unit that plays the Support role. His Support capabilities are pretty good with the layout he has and he has some great health for being a Support unit.

MS Nichol is best set for using his Stance moves because of how effective they are. His stance moves give crazy increases to stats while boosting LB.

What makes him so effective over most other Support units is his final skill Linked Stance. This lets him use two Stance moves in one turn and that makes this Support kind of insane.

Being able to boost stats by 110% twice in one turn is a massive shift for any fight. As a Support, MS Nichol is hard to beat.

His Traits aren’t half bad giving him a few bonus sellers like a magic counter and 100% resistance to poison, sleep and petrify. And from his Traits, he can use his two conditional skills as well.

He even has a bit of magic giving him good coverage over Ice and Water. These are great to have for him to deal a little bit of damage in a pinch.

In all honesty, the only downside to Nichol is his equipment but even that isn’t completely horrible it’s just sort of basic. His Limit Break is a better version of his stance moves and his trust master is pretty awesome.

Verdict: Probably one of the best Support units to date.

Lore

A military tactician for the Olderion Federation, and a man who has fully gained the trust of his comrades, especially Jake’s. Ever since Nichol arrived to Paladia, he has been wearing a pair of fashionable glasses. Apparently, his deceased younger brother Elle planned to give these to him as a birthday present, but never got the chance to before his untimely passing. Elle’s wife Arsha then passed these to Nichol before he left for Paladia.
