biography.

โฆฟ nico's life begins in the grimier streets of the city, hiding away in the crumbling house down at the very end of the street. the youngest of five, with three older brothers and two sisters to lovingly pick on him. grandparents stuck on the thrifted couch, complaining about the news while aunts helped pack lunches - the smell of cigarettes staining the carpets. in the middle of the chaos was nico's mother, a single woman who somehow carried the world on her shoulders and her family at the same time.

โฆฟ adult supervision was very much lacking in the zimmermann household, everyone caught up in their own worlds that they sometimes forget others lived in the house as well. it wasn't anyone's fault, nico couldn't blame it on his full-time working mother, nor could he blame it on his older siblings. the youngest learned independence at a young age, relying on the teachers who weren't deferred by his siblings' known rambunctious personalities. even when teachers gave pats on the back and praise of being 'different from the rest', nico couldn't help it but dream of being apart of the elite crowd his siblings were apart of.

โฆฟ everyone somehow did their part to help pay the bills. once he was old enough to do so, nico worked in the small town diners after school as a busboy; it wasn't a glamorous job, but it was worth something. the family were certainly unorthodox in their methods, nico's siblings weren't the kind to work a minimum wage job like others. they had ambitions, dreams of getting the entire family out of their personal hellhole. even when nico was the only child home, greeting the same police officer at the door with one of his older sister's giving a dirty look, nothing felt unordinary for him. young, dumb and broke, no one they trusted told them no.

โฆฟ his first shoplift was at fourteen. encouraged by his older brother as they wandered through the streets together; he'd play bait while his brother would pluck their wallets and watches before anyone noticed. nico learned how to pick locks, distract innocent eyes while he took their belongings. a family full of alcoholics, smokers and petty criminals, nico simply fell in line with the rest of his siblings. they all adored their mother, the tiny light in their home, but she lacked the same awareness as anyone else that was left with an empty pocket. his teenage years were spent balancing school, work and his newfound hobby - finally feeling like he was accepted by his siblings.

โฆฟ for two and a half years, nicolas tagged along with everything his siblings did. consequences were like a faraway dream, he was on top of the world. and for three years, nico didn't realise all things must come to an end. he was stupidly reckless, rumours had already floated within the precinct about the family and already being familiar with the siblings - including the youngest - it wasn't hard to build a case against them. caught in the middle of a petty shoplift, nico was sent to a juvenile detention facility for a month. the disappointment in his grandparents' faces, the tears that fell from his mother's eyes, it broke his heart. the month felt like a year, sitting alone and refusing to talk to anyone, feeling like a sinner in church. the awful realisation slowly dawned on him, his siblings never cared.

โฆฟ the month felt like a year, sitting alone and refusing to talk to anyone, feeling like a sinner in church. during the month, nico was visited by the same detective that always brought the zimmermann siblings back home in the back of his car. the teen struggled to look in the man's eyes, but it was the only way nico could hear about the world outside. through small talks and awkward silences, he and the detective slowly grew to accept each other's presence. once his time was done, nico was driven back home not by his siblings, but by the detective that managed to stick it through. the drive was still quiet as their small talk, with nico asking a few curious questions that the detective was happy to answer. as the car stopped near the curb and the engine grew into a low growl, nico left wondering: maybe there is something to it.

โฆฟ the day his record was cleaned at the age of eighteen, nico enrolled for the police academy. six intensive months were spent away from his family, trying to seperate himself from his siblings. and with success, nico completed the academy's training and earned his badge. as he grew older, his status only increased. by the age of twenty seven, the male had gone from being a beat cop to a detective. cases came and went, never leaving a lasting impact until nico found himself caught up in a homicide that was something more. for days, which slowly turned into weeks, nico was hunched over his desk trying to untangle the web of what happened; the whole picture seem so grand, almost impossible.

โฆฟ the effects of working on such a big case was starting to show and with every attempt and plea to his chief officer, the lack of support and evidence crumbled underneath him. the detective never spoke about his criminal past, not to a single soul that needed to know, but as he sat in the chief's officer - nico felt like he was a teenager again, being judged for his wrongdoings. nothing could change his mind, and after nico's short fuse of a temper, nicolas zimmermann was deemed unfit for the job and was removed. the case closing and all of his notes, and life's work, were shoved into a corner of his shitty apartment.
