Character Info

◎ Character's Name: Nice
◎ Character's Canon: Hamatora
◎ Character's Age: 18; it's not explicitly stated in the anime that he turned 18, but seeing as how he was 17 as of season 1 and there was a 3 month time skip in between seasons, a 6 month time skip at the end of season 2, and an unknown timespan where both seasons occurred I'd say he's 18 by now or really close to it.
◎ Canon Point: post-s2
◎ Background/History: the wiki sucks so i typed it out here
◎ Is the character a hacker and/or do they have a sixth-sense? not really no.

◎ Personality:
    The first thing that's the most obvious about Nice is how laid back he is. There's little that bothers him, and most people will never encounter a Nice that is really angry. However, this laid back attitude of his goes to an extreme where he's pretty lazy. He's very selective on what kind of work he takes on, and even when assigned to that job he might not always do it without complaining. Generally, when cases don't interest him and he's made to take something, he throws them to Murasaki. He might just get stuck sweeping Cafe Nowhere in return, if they can catch him before he ditches.

    Despite his attitude, Nice is actually a genius. He was first in his class at Facultas, at least before he dropped out. He's also the brains in Hamatora; though Murasaki is smart, Nice still surpasses him in figuring out cases and picking out things that most people wouldn't normally notice. It only took him a matter of seconds into walking into Art's office (after he "died" and Moral had taken his place) to notice the black cosmos and black coffee can. He notes that Art didn't drink black coffee (he's a sugarholic), which could be an example at how well he knows Art, but he takes it a step further when he mentions that the can was still warm, so the person who'd occupied the room had left only minutes ago. From there, he had Honey use her Minimum to track down Moral in an exact way by deducing how far away he must've been by the time Nice contacted her.

    The thing is, Nice knows how smart and talented he is. He knows he's light years ahead of people, so this leads to him being cocky and overconfident in situations. For the most part, his high opinion of himself is justified. He's able to see things that other people don't, even his partner, and links in between cases that might pop up before anyone else. Most enemies that he faces too he's able to defeat in seconds due to his Minimum. While he doesn't necessarily say it, he does think to an extent that everything has an easy resolution because he's just that good. However, this serves as an extreme weakness whenever he encounters a situation that he can't figure out or an enemy he can't defeat so easily because he's not always sure how to handle it. Sometimes, he has to pause (if an enemy will let him, like Moral) to regain his control. If an enemy doesn't let him take a moment (like Art or Ratio), he either never regains his control or has to figure it out on the fly, with varied results.

    "I don't think it's a big deal whether you have power or not. If you want it, you can get it.
    There's no need to get emo because you don't have it. It won't affect whether you're a worthy human being or not.
    It doesn't matter as long as you're confident about yourself. Why are people so envious of others?
    Why do people look down on each other? Why does it happen like that?! Pisses me off!"

    Even though Nice has a big ego when it comes to his abilities, he doesn't look down on others that aren't on his level. The only people he does look down on are people who actively put people into categories of "weak" and "strong" and judge them for it. It's one of the biggest differences between Nice and Moral in season one; Moral saw people without Minimums as weak and needing to be offered a chance to be "strong" with a Minimum. He thought that Nice was far above everyone else, and his motivations for giving others Minimums and making himself stronger was so that Nice didn't feel so isolated. The only thing was, Nice never felt like he was isolated. And he tells Moral this, that he doesn't need to decide who's weak and who's above everyone else.

    "You have no business telling me that I'm strong or alone or whatever. In fact, it's no one's business
    to decide who's weak or strong."
    (Moral): "The strong have the right to decide that."
    "That! That's what annoys me! You're going around deciding who's weak and who should get power.
    Who do you think you are? You piss me off."

    The reason why he hates these comparisons, and that it makes him so angry (when very little actually does. There is another way, but I'll get to that in a little bit), is because it reminds him of Facultas. He'd seen children categorized as "weak" being taken away before his eyes and never seen again, he'd had Skill taken away because of his Minimum and found Hajime because she'd been isolated from her success with their experiments. All of these occurrences had shaped his opinions on this, and why he feels so strongly about it. He feels the need to call people out when they try to categorize others as weak especially and look down on them for it -- as he called out Moral and Takahiro's mother, for example. He implies to Takahiro's mother that it's her fault that her son turned to Moral for a Minimum and turned into a monster, after telling her that it was stupid that she tried to shield him from the world because she believed he was weak.

    What Nice wants, and has always wanted, is to be free. He indicates in a flashback with Art that he'd never been outside the walls of Facultas, and that he was going to get out one way or another one day to see the world, away from other people's control. It's one of the other reasons why he decided to leave Facultas. Nice had never wanted to be there in the first place; and was probably looking for more excuses to leave when he met Hajime. Meeting her was the right push he needed to attempt to leave, because he wasn't only leaving for himself, but he wanted to bring freedom to her, too.

    "Like, I'm a genius, right? But because I'm kind of blunt and all, even if I try to be considerate,
    they say I'm just acting condescending. So people usually start distancing themselves from me. It's a pain."

    That being said, Nice is blunt when he feels like something seriously needs to be said. Instead of beating around the bush around people and considering their feelings, if there's something he feels like they need to be called out on, he'll do it. Even if it's just calling out a stupid thing, he'll do it. But really, he does it when he actually cares, even though he comes off as really rude. It's very obvious when he doesn't care about a subject, because he's more prone to ignore it. He doesn't spare Theo's feelings when talking about his teacher and what he'd done, but it's because he knew Theo would be able to get past it. And while it might've sounded really harsh at the time, Theo did end up moving past his teacher's death and betrayal. On the other side of that, when Takahiro reappears and says that he wants help to become a regular boy again, Nice refuses to help him. He says that he's the one who asked for power, and he doesn't understand why he suddenly doesn't want it anymore. Besides, he had other things he wanted to look into, like what Moral's plan was, and what he was doing with the non-innate Minimum Holders.

    Nice, as we meet him in the manga, doesn't have too many people he'd consider a friend. His constants at that point were Art and Hajime, to be exact. Though, through the events of the manga, he gained Murasaki (his partner), Birthday, Ratio, Honey and Three, and his friend circle widened even more in the first season of the anime. But he's closest to the regulars in Cafe Nowhere, there are very few he's actually very close to -- and I come to the other thing that'll make Nice angry. If someone were to mess with these three people, he ends up losing his cool.

    "Besides, if wanting someone else to like you is also about ego, my feelings for Hajime-chan are my ego, too."

    Nice was the one who started the idea of getting Hajime out of Facultas. It'd been a chance encounter on meeting her, but it was almost immediate that he felt like he had to protect her. Those feelings would never go away, either. He feels like he needs to protect her even though she can't remember what he'd done for her, and he's okay with this. To him, being able to take care of her was enough for him -- and they do bond all over again (though I'm sure a lot of hamburgers were bought in the process). And while he does feel the need to protect her, he's not overprotective. Nice is very well aware of Hajime's abilities (Koneko mentions in season one that Hajime's one of the few people that could beat Nice), so he essentially lets her fight her own battles for the most part. That is, unless she gets taken away from him, and then he'll stop at nothing to get her back. Usually though, Hajime eats through all of Nice's money and while Nice complains about it sometimes, he lets it go in the end.

    Also, it's important to note that the angriest he's ever gotten in both seasons is mostly beacause of Hajime getting upset. The first time, her crying over Takahiro, and the second was when he came back to life and noticed that Hajime was unresponsive.

    "I think guys who don't have power -- who acknowledge that they're weak and still struggle in spite of it are cool.
    I like them."

    Art is Nice's oldest living friend, and one of the other people that Nice is really close to. And, unfortunately, is someone that Nice exploits for information or access to things that would normally be illegal for Nice to know or have in his possession. They remain comfortable but close, however when the Moral case starts to affect Art, they begin to distance themselves from each other slightly. Nice, because he doesn't want Art to feel like he needs to tell him anything, and Art because he wants to do this by himself. Eventually, when Art yells at Nice for sticking his nose into the case, Nice pouts...a lot. While bickering with Murasaki might be more normal (and he never fights with Hajime), Art raising his voice to Nice upset him. And he got him a bunch of junk food to attempt to give it to him (but Art was "dead" by this point. go Nice) to smooth things over.

    Even after Art attempted to kill Nice on that ship, during the whole three month time span where Nice was "dead", he still investigated and followed Art. He's very slow on the uptake that Art is doing bad things, telling one of the Facultas staff that they don't know for sure that he had taken the Minimums of all those children. When Gasquet dies, he doesn't place blame on Art for the action himself, but instead says that Art made himself cry and he's going to stop him, even if he has to beat him up (Nice........).

    Despite what Art did to Murasaki and Nice himself, it's making Hajime shut down completely that pushes Nice over the edge with him. It's probably the only serious fight he has with him in the season, but even that goes away when he realizes that Hajime's okay. Instead, his attention shifts to trying to talk Art out of his delusions, and he only gets angry on Skill's behalf. Even in the end, after Art basically destroying the world as they knew it, Nice doesn't comment on it when they meet up again. The only thing that he comments on is the fact that he doesn't need to die again (referring to Art jumping off the building).

    Incredible. So in summary: there's not a whole lot Art could do to make Nice turn against him completely. Their bond is that strong, and Nice is that loyal to Art that it seems that just getting along with Art again was enough for Nice.

    "Murasaki stuck with me to tell me what's what. He wants to top me someday. That's what
    his ego tells him to do. That's why he's my partner."

    Murasaki has probably known Nice the least amount of time, even though Nice put a whole lot of trust in Murasaki relatively quickly. Nice knew fairly quickly, in the manga, why Murasaki was around him (to take him back to Facultas). He does actually tell him to leave once, but obviously the sentiment was short lived. The first time he put his trust in Murasaki was when he threw himself and Hajime out of a window, and was completely trusting that Murasaki would catch him. It wouldn't be the last time that he did something so reckless, either, because Murasaki also has to end up fishing Nice out of the ocean too.

    Their relationship is pretty competitive, though. Murasaki didn't go to the Facultas location Nice went to, so he was brought up to be the top of his class where he'd come from. That is, until he met Nice, who was even better than he was. He strives to be better than Nice, and Nice doesn't go easy on him at all -- not that anybody would want him to in the first place.

    Even though their relationship is competitive, Murasaki still acts like a caregiver to Nice in some respects. He cooks, he cleans, he does their laundry -- and he even nags Nice almost in a way a parent would at times. Murasaki also knows how to read Nice, as he's able to guess fairly accurately what's bothering Nice or how he should fix a situation, even though Nice isn't too receptive when Murasaki gives him advice. It's not just a problem with Murasaki, though -- Nice isn't too receptive when anyone gives him advice.

◎ Powers/Abilities:
    Here is the link for Nice's main Minimum -- however, it's slightly innacurate as his trigger is not to put the headphones on, it's just snapping his fingers. He can use his Minimum without his headphones, but it only helps him further focus if he has them on. The way it works is more or less the same, with the addition that his range is five meters and that his Minimum seems to last for only a few seconds.

    Another Minimum that Nice has, he inherited from Skill. This one is called the Ego Minimum, and the trigger for this one is hope. It amplifies the egos in others (ego gives Minimum Holders their Minimums in the first place), and sometimes gives them Minimums. As experiments with Skill showed, forced use of this Minimum doesn't give it to others; instead, it turns them into monsters. It also can completely nullify the Nihilist Minimum, as seen in the last episode of the series. Its other name is Magical Bandaid Minimum. Skill was also able to wake Nice up as well through it.

    Seeing as how it's only been activated once in the series, though, it probably won't be activated in a game setting. Just so you know Nice isn't going to be running around giving people Minimums or anything -- it's only an extreme circumstance that this activates, if it would be able to activate at all in a game setting.

    Other than that, Nice is shown to be really good with hand-to-hand combat and, of course, is a genius.

Samples

◎ Third-Person Sample:
    Nice rarely ever stepped foot in the kitchen to cook. The last time he had, he'd made the onigiri for Murasaki; though they hadn't come out very well. His intention was to make something for Art's release...

    ...Except Nice was a failure at this sort of thing. Genius he might be, chef he is not.

    It was after a loud argument with Murasaki, a burned up dishrag, and the vow that he wouldn't use the stove or oven by himself that Nice kicked Murasaki out of the kitchen and settled for making onigiri yet again. His goal was to make something sweet, since that was Art's favorite type of food, but obviously that hadn't worked so well.

    He was going to do this, he was determined on doing this.

    It'd almost been six months since everything had happened, and while it had become normal for most of the others, it still wasn't quite normal for Nice. He figured it never would be, to an extent, but he was glad nonetheless that it was going to get as close as it could get soon enough. It was still really weird to not have Art around, and with his release that was hopefully going to change.

    It was the best outcome, despite what had happened. Hajime was okay, Murasaki had his Minimum back -- they all had their Minimums back -- and Yokohama moved on as if nothing had happened at all. This was something that Nice was happy about, because all he wanted at this point was to move on and pretend that it hadn't happened. It was the easiest way to deal with it, he thought -- and it wasn't like he hadn't done it before. His thoughts roam briefly to Hajime, who he'd found in Cafe Nowhere with no memories of meeting him. He'd just kept going like there was nothing wrong then, too.

    It really was for the best.

    Coming back to the here and now, realizing he was standing there with rice in his hands, he had an idea: maybe he could make the onigiri sweet. He goes to get some syrup out of the pantry and uses that on the riceballs -- but then quickly realizes again that then it's all too sticky to work with. Again, he reaches into the pantry and pulls out the first thing that he could find, which turns out to be sugar. Nice rolls the failing riceballs into a bowl of sugar to try to make it less sticky, and he makes a few before looking at his creations in the container in front of him.

    They looked good enough, maybe he should try one...

    ...He regretted that decision almost immediately. He choked and coughed as he swallowed, running to the trashcan and dumping the mess in his hands and in the container in the trash. He stares at his failed attempts at food for a minute, before placing the plate back on the table and considering his next move as he goes to get a soda out of the fridge to wash away the taste of basically pure sugar with rice.

    He could almost see Murasaki's attempt at not looking smug as Nice turns to him to help and admits he's wrong. Since there was no way he was going to end up doing that, he fishes through his pockets to see how much yen he could turn up. And as always, it was very little, but maybe it would be enough to just buy the food. And since he had no witnesses, maybe he could pass it off as his own creation.

    Yes, that's what he was going to do. It was well worth it, especially since he wasn't allowed to do anything else.

That is, until he met Nice, who was even better than he was. He strives to be better than Nice, and Nice doesn't go easy on him at all -- not that anybody would want him to in the first place.

    Even though their relationship is competitive, Murasaki still acts like a caregiver to Nice in some respects. He cooks, he cleans, he does their laundry -- and he even nags Nice almost in a way a parent would at times. Murasaki also knows how to read Nice, as he's able to guess fairly accurately what's bothering Nice or how he should fix a situation, even though Nice isn't too receptive when Murasaki gives him advice. It's not just a problem with Murasaki, though -- Nice isn't too receptive when anyone gives him advice.

Abilities:
    Here is the link for Nice's main Minimum -- however, it's slightly innacurate as his trigger is not to put the headphones on, it's just snapping his fingers. He can use his Minimum without his headphones, but it only helps him further focus if he has them on. The way it works is more or less the same, with the addition that his range is five meters and that his Minimum seems to last for only a few seconds.

    Another Minimum that Nice has, he inherited from Skill. This one is called the Ego Minimum, and the trigger for this one is hope. It amplifies the egos in others (ego gives Minimum Holders their Minimums in the first place), and sometimes gives them Minimums. As experiments with Skill showed, forced use of this Minimum doesn't give it to others; instead, it turns them into monsters. It also can completely nullify the Nihilist Minimum, as seen in the last episode of the series. Its other name is Magical Bandaid Minimum. Skill was also able to wake Nice up as well through it.

    Seeing as how it's only been activated once in the series, though, it probably won't be activated in a game setting. Just so you know Nice isn't going to be running around giving people Minimums or anything -- it's only an extreme circumstance that this activates, if it would be able to activate at all in a game setting.

    Other than that, Nice is shown to be really good with hand-to-hand combat and, of course, is a genius.

⌈ SAMPLE SECTION ⌉

First Person Sample:

YAY FOR LINKS

Third Person Sample:
    Nice rarely ever stepped foot in the kitchen to cook. The last time he had, he'd made the onigiri for Murasaki; though they hadn't come out very well. His intention was to make something for Art's release...

    ...Except Nice was a failure at this sort of thing. Genius he might be, chef he is not.

    It was after a loud argument with Murasaki, a burned up dishrag, and the vow that he wouldn't use the stove or oven by himself that Nice kicked Murasaki out of the kitchen and settled for making onigiri yet again. His goal was to make something sweet, since that was Art's favorite type of food, but obviously that hadn't worked so well.

    He was going to do this, he was determined on doing this.

    It'd almost been six months since everything had happened, and while it had become normal for most of the others, it still wasn't quite normal for Nice. He figured it never would be, to an extent, but he was glad nonetheless that it was going to get as close as it could get soon enough. It was still really weird to not have Art around, and with his release that was hopefully going to change.

    It was the best outcome, despite what had happened. Hajime was okay, Murasaki had his Minimum back -- they all had their Minimums back -- and Yokohama moved on as if nothing had happened at all. This was something that Nice was happy about, because all he wanted at this point was to move on and pretend that it hadn't happened. It was the easiest way to deal with it, he thought -- and it wasn't like he hadn't done it before. His thoughts roam briefly to Hajime, who he'd found in Cafe Nowhere with no memories of meeting him. He'd just kept going like there was nothing wrong then, too.

    It really was for the best.

    Coming back to the here and now, realizing he was standing there with rice in his hands, he had an idea: maybe he could make the onigiri sweet. He goes to get some syrup out of the pantry and uses that on the riceballs -- but then quickly realizes again that then it's all too sticky to work with. Again, he reaches into the pantry and pulls out the first thing that he could find, which turns out to be sugar. Nice rolls the failing riceballs into a bowl of sugar to try to make it less sticky, and he makes a few before looking at his creations in the container in front of him.

    They looked good enough, maybe he should try one...

    ...He regretted that decision almost immediately. He choked and coughed as he swallowed, running to the trashcan and dumping the mess in his hands and in the container in the trash. He stares at his failed attempts at food for a minute, before placing the plate back on the table and considering his next move as he goes to get a soda out of the fridge to wash away the taste of basically pure sugar with rice.

    He could almost see Murasaki's attempt at not looking smug as Nice turns to him to help and admits he's wrong. Since there was no way he was going to end up doing that, he fishes through his pockets to see how much yen he could turn up. And as always, it was very little, but maybe it would be enough to just buy the food. And since he had no witnesses, maybe he could pass it off as his own creation.

    Yes, that's what he was going to do. It was well worth it, especially since he wasn't allowed to do anything else.
