Niklovich was originally named Nyarlathotep and is one of Nekrozoth's spawns. Being born in a lab, he was a clone of Nekrozoth having the DNAs of both Prime Omegas and Leviathan along with many of the other children born there, and was raised by Nekrozoth to be his heir if his other children failed. Probably one of, if not the, most evil of the Dark-Lord's children. Once studied under sorcery and later magic, Niklovich was as Nyarlathotep/Niklovich who was always a monstrous psychopath when he learned his obsession of murder and torture when he bullied, assaulted, and later murdered some of his siblings born in the same lab as him. This reason was why he was never abused by his father unlike the rest of his children whom he bullied and even assaulted for his entertainment (it was implied that he killed one of them).
As he grew older he recruited a demon known as Y'golonac as his right hand, and sowed chaos across multiple realities for his enjoyment. Later he meet a goddess named Yhoundeh, whom he became lustful for and forced her to marry him against her will and later impregnated her by converting his energy onto her. Through her she gave birth to the Million Favored Ones, whom he groom into his monstrous soldiers to invade other realities and devour inhabitants of cities.
He was also responsible for destroying Nodens's home world and killing his family, his wife and daughter, and his pets for fun and left Nodens's planet ravaged. Nodens swore vengeance on Niklovich and his Prime Omega masters for what he has done, thus making he and Nodens archenemy for the rest of their lives.
However he grew bored from his "favored" children and had most of them annihilated while sealing the rest of them in a pocket dimension for torture. His main reason for this was due to the fact they weren't chaotic enough and did not leave up to his expectations. He planned on making a better species much more chaotic and hostile than his Million Favored Ones.
Arrival on Earth and the creation of the Vampires
When Nekrozoth discovered the existence of planet Earth, he sent his son Nyarlathotep to that planet to scout and find any living beings to convert to his father's will. Upon his arrival on a prehistory Earth, he caused the extinction of the dinosaurs themselves then devoured all of their corpses leaving nothing but bones and skulls. He came across the Garden of Eden which contains the first humans inside. However it was guarded by the guardian angel named Lilith which would possibly be a problem for him. Once he learns about Lilith's secret crush on the first human, Adam, Nyarlathotep disguised himself as another angel and manipulated her into becoming mortal and be with Adam. He took this as an advantage and contacted his father into entering the Earth along with another Prime Omega named Strife. Nyarlathotep helped lead the corruption of humanity, with Nekrozoth being the one who cursed the apple of knowledge and had his son be the one to tempt both Adam and Eve to eat it, causing them to be banished from the Garden of Eden. Nyarlathotep manipulated humanity into worshiping him as a god, making them grovel at his feet. He helped his fellow Prime Omegas to enslave humanity and the gods they once worshiped and ruled the Earth for centuries.
Creating the Vampires
Nyarlathotep also enslaved Lilith knowing that she had made a deal with him, therefore Lilith became his slave. He puts Lilith in his personal torturous experiments, and forcefully turning her into the world's first vampire. He used her to attack mortals, converting them into vampires which spawn a whole race of vampires. He used these vampires to make a army of monsters at his disposal to keep the mortals in line and make them grovel at his feet.
He later spread vampirism across the omniverse, creating more vampires across different dimensions later on in order to make his own army of monsters to grow. He was named "Ha'Kesh" by the vampires and was worshiped as a powerful yet ruthless vampire god.
Attempted Genocide and Imprisonment
Humanity and their gods were soon freed from the Prime Omega's control, and locked up some of the Primes Omegas left on Earth. However Niklovich was angered, not because of his brethren, but the fact that he thinks they didn't show enough love and worship to him which gave him a sense of spite and anger. He attempted to have every living beings on the planet eradicated, and move on to another to start a new cycle of destruction on other worlds. This plan alone made the vampires consider Nyarlathotep insane, and decided to cooperate with humanity in fighting against the mad god.
A war broke out between Niklovich and the united forces of both vampires and humans, many had died but they were successful in defeating Nyarlathotep and sealing him inside a sarcophagus which has a portal that leads him to the Pandora Dimension. However he brought countless others with him before he was sealed and dragged them to his prison for him to torture and drive insane. They've sent the sarcophagus away in an area where it would soon become Ancient Egypt.
Return and creation of the Vamperiacs
Nyarlathotep caused in Ancient Egypt, when a group of graverobbers mistaken his coffin as a Pharaoh's he drove them insane and used them to be his minions. Then he possesses one of them, then continue to posses others until he possesses the last Pharaoh of Ancient Egypt, Cleopatra and brought the fall of Ancient Egypt. He then influence the survivors of the fall of Egypt and gathered a cult that worships him as "The Black Pharaoh. He finally reemerge in a village in Rome, manipulating people into worshipping him and gained more followers as he further manipulated more villages to follow him. Later he drove one village insane in order to create a sect for him, then went to another by orchestrating a mass slaughter by driving the villagers insane and have them kill each other. Later he lead another village to cause a violate massacre and used the corpses of the victims to make an undead army for to ravage the planet Earth. He lead his armies to massacre villages and make more monsters through these corpses.
He performed cruel experiments on his necromancy by using the last remaining Million Favored Ones and some of the vampires to make a new race known as Vamperiacs who are capable of eating both vampires and humans. He plan to use them to get his revenge on all vampires and humans who "betrayed" him, and sent them to other realms and dimensions to wreck havoc on and kill many vampires and humans from alternate timelines while having the ones on Earth to help him with his revenge plot.
Meeting Abdul Alhazred
Niklovich meets the mad Arab named Abdul Alhazred, knowing that he might be the key to helping him summon the Prime Omegas back to the Earth and get his revenge on Humanity and Vampire kind. He makes a deal with the mad Arab Abdul Alhazred, giving him the Necronomicon which is made of the flesh of deities he murdered in the past. He manipulated Abdul into gathering a cult to start an ancient and powerful ritual that summons the Omegas back on Earth.
It was revealed that Nodens has been hunting Niklovich down for centuries after Niklovich ravages his home, while hunting down the monster Niklovich created across dimensions. Nodens heard that Niklovich was on Earth, and tried to find him and his monsters there ever since. Nodens learned that Niklovich was at Stonehenge trying to summon the Prime Omegas, however he did not came to save humanity as he did not care for them but merely wanted revenge on Niklovich and punish him for his actions. Once they finally met, he and Niklovich battled each other, using magic and their cosmic abilities.
Nodens triumphantly won the battle and defeated Niklovich, and use the portal activated at Stonehenge to banish him to the Pandora Dimension. Nodens had his revenge, but decided to live on Earth knowing that Niklovich might return to get his revenge. So Nodens decided to wait and prepare for his return.
World War II
Niklovich, or merely an avatar of him, was released by the Nazis to help them win the Second World War. However he only joined the war so that he could freely kill Allied soldiers and citizens for sport. He would be named Baron Vile by both citizen, Allied soldiers, and even by other Nazis due his sadistic behavior and atrocious actions like violently assaulting a Prisoner of War until he kills him and how he collects the jaws of his enemies in the battle field. Next he carried the entire canister of Zyklon B and dropped it on the battle field which would kill not just the Allies but also his own comrades and continues dropping them at cities with innocent people. Vile would interrogate his enemies by constantly torturing them for no apparent reason, even if they talk. He would also treating to kill their own comrades through a Blood Eagle, and tortured allied solders through the infamous "Blood Eagle".
During his free time, he slaughtered an entire town, devouring everyone and left no trace of life in the town. He has also killed an impaled soldiers, even his own men for fun.
He later face Legend himself, Legend was on the Allies side (not just the US) and heard of the atrocities and seek to end the reign of Baron Vile's terror on Germany. Vile mocked Legend and then continues to rant on how powerful he is said he would easily defeat him. Legend would make a counter insult which offended the Baron, the Baron said he would enjoy on killing him slowly so he and Legend fought. The Baron would blast dark energy at Legend while Legend would continue on shooting Light shards against the Baron until Vile was finally defeated. After the end of World War II, Niklovich/Vile abandoned the Nazis and the fascist party knowing there was no hope for them in winning. However his avatar was soon slain and was sent back to the Pandora Dimensions once again.
Niklovich appears as a recurring antagonist of the sci-fi fantasy superhero MMO RPG Legends Online. He was the main antagonist of Pillers of Madness expansion pack where he plans to kill the former ruler of the Dream-Lands and intends to topple the entire realm in order to destroy the consciousnesses of every single being in the omniverse. He appears disguising as an ally to the players if they are a hero, and manipulates them into thinking that the ruler of the Dream-Lands is a mad tyrant. When
Should the player chose to be a villain, Niklovich would manipulate them regardless as he would only use them as a means to achieve his goals. Though he will (in rare occasions) reward the (villain) player an item for self serving purposes, and provide aid to the player (Doesn't matter which side) in raids and sometimes boss battles. Niklovich would also play on both sides, manipulating two of them as pawns to help him in his goals. When the players reached the ruler of the Dream-Lands, Niklovich kills the ruler by stabbing him behind the back and later betrays the player.
The Player must fight Niklovich's horde of minions first, destroy all of his dungeons and defeat the bosses including his henchdemon Y'golonac. When the player finally encounters Niklovich, the player would engage in a boss fight with Niklovich which he used his shapeshifting abilities in the battle. When they defeat him in the first phase he decided to devouring the consciousnesses of other life-forms through the beams coming from the Pillers of the Mind. He grew more powerful as a result which begins the second phase of the boss battle, using the powers granted to him from the pillers to bring nightmares and phobias to life in order to help him defeat the player. If the player defeats all of the phobias and nightmares, Niklovich would teleport them into a shadow realm and used shadow shards as a means to kill them.
Should the hero player defeat Niklovich, they would be rewarded with a good ending with the Prime Alphas restoring the damage caused by Niklovich and lock Niklovich in a more tighter prison in the Pandora Dimension. Should the villain player wins, they report back to Nekrozoth about Niklovich's schemes which angers Nekrozoth due to the fact that Niklovich would dare betray him and try to take over the omniverse which he himself was intending to do. Nekrozoth tells the player that he will punish Niklovich accordingly, what kind of punish is unknown. Should both sides fail we get a cutscene of Niklovich destroying the piller and rebuilt it in his brand new "Pillers of Madness", and see every being across the omniverse fell into despair and insanity causing mass chaos and hysteria with Niklovich setting on top of the throne in the Dream-Lands watching over the madness with immense glee.
In the DLC, it was hinted the hero ending is canon but Niklovich was broken out of his prison thanks to some Prime Omegas sent by Nekrozoth to bail him out. On the villains side, you'll learn that Nekrozoth only broke his son out so that he could punish him "properly" himself in person.
Multiversal Legends Film Universe
See here: Niklovich (MLFU)
Niklovich appears as the main antagonist of the third, sixth, and seventh season of television series Pandora Foundation, which sets in the same universe as the other films in the Multiversal Legends Film Universe. Niklovich was a vampiric sorcerous demigod son of Nekrozoth born on a planet of Laxua, instead of being an entity born in a lab. He destroyed his home planet by devouring every living being through his dark magic and later went across different dimensions doing the same thing to them. He acts as one of the Pandora Foundations's most dangerous villains they have ever faced and as a archenemy to Randolf Carter.
Legends of the Champions Universe
He has two separate characters in this universe, one being Ha'Kesh (which was one of Niklovich's alias when he was worshiped as a bat god) who possibly acts as the closest thing to being an adaptation of the vampiric egotist. Ha'Kesh possess some bits of his origins but lacks the relationship with Nekrozoth, instead Ha'Kesh is a godlike bat god who travels across dimensions and devoured its inhabitants for sport and later once enslaved humanity into worshiping him. Ha'Kesh in that universe is the creator of all vampires.
Nyarlathotep (Niklovich's true identity) is a servant to Nekrozoth but not his son, he acts as the Prime Omegas's herald and goes across the multiverse sowing the seed of chaos and help his master in conquest and defilement. Nyarlathotep has Y'golonac as his henchman (like Niklovich has in canon), and went to Earth to manipulate humanity and prepare for the coming of the Prime Omega invasion. However he takes his time in torturing humanity for his own amusement, bring ruin and blight onto their societies and breaking the minds of those who oppose him.
Inruptio; The Carnage Hotel
See here; Niklovich (Inruptio Series)
Niklovich acts as the main antagonist of this non-canon original web-series. Being a landlord of a hotel called the Sanguis Hotel, a hotel housing the worst psychopaths and sadists across the omniverse, where he performs his criminal activities such as drug trafficking, selling of slaves, and illegal arms dealing. When a squad of Champions were sent to shut down his operation, Niklovich orchestrated a mass slaughter and have those in his massive hotel to kill any of the survivors while promising free rent (A promised he admits that he never intended to keep).
Niklovich normally takes the appearance of a vampire dressed in red armor and have blood red eyes, silver shoulder pads and belt, white gloves. He has black hair and a goatee, he has a very pale skin like a normal vampire has. In his other forms, he takes the appearance of a black skinned zombie like pharaoh wearing Egyptian wrappings, a bat-like humanoid, and often dress in a red ragged old trench coat with chains and a black top hat (sometimes sporting a monocle for a villainous style. He is technically genderless despite being referred as a he, as he can assume any form and gender he wishes. His true form is never truly seen, as it is primarily beyond the comprehension of most beings.
The hair on the form he takes is not exactly hair, it is a substance called Shadow-Flame which he can manipulate with his umbrakinetic powers. He sometimes use this substance to make clothing of. He also has a form known as The Dark Man, which is a being made of Shadow-Flame.

|~ Niklovich/Nyarlathotep showing his psychopathy and sadism.|
He is the epitome of a psychopathic manchild and a world ending lover of chaos. He is like many Prime Omegas, psychopathic, destructive, manipulative, and seek to wanting nothing be chaos across the omniverse. Niklovich is a extremely cruel and evil monster that's seemed to hate all living beings and seek to brings chaos and death every where he goes. Nyarlathotep enjoy driving mortals insane and even manipulating and deceiving his victims as he described it as his daily hobby. He uses propaganda, deception, and manipulation for his own goals as he is prophesied to be the doom of humanity itself. He relishes on the chaos and evil he brings that his followers had called him "the Crawling Chaos". He is also known for his insanity, twisted sense of humor, and distaste towards order itself. He has a passion for murder, torture, and cruelty as he sees them as the most beautiful things in the omniverse
In describing Niklovich's personalty, Randolf Carter described Niklovich/Nyarlathotep as a "wicked child playing god". His sadistic childish demeanor is what makes him dangerous, seeing himself as a god who thinks that both Vampires, Humans, and all mortals overall as equally worthless and unfit to live in his vision of a new world. Mainly this stems from his godlike reality warping powers and being gifted Prime Omega and Leviathan with immense powers. He is extremely narcissistic, murderous, power-hungry, egotistical, arrogant, and ruthless psychopathic demon that is even despised by the very vampires he created. They hate Niklovich so much that even they erased any recordings of him from vampire history, making him nothing but a enigma.
He is also a very deceitful and skilled Manipulator which is one of his most defining trait, and the one that others have to be careful for. Through his machinations, he brought havoc and madness while gaining followers for his twisted goals. Often posing as some sort of advisor to several dictators and tyrants to commit horrific acts or manipulate benevolent beings into becoming ruthless tyrants like how his father Nekrozoth does. He is cunning, highly intelligent and extremely competent, and tends to act persuasive in order to manipulate others for self help. His own insanity lead to his downfall in multiple occasions, since he tends to act reckless due to his behavior. Though despite his intellect and extreme cunning, he shows a rather animalistic side which leads him to randomly commit acts of murder and bloodshed out of his ravenous hunger for blood. He sees himself as a hunter while seeing other living beings as inferior preys for him to hunt down and kill for his entertainment. Deep down his calculating persona is that of a savage beast who enjoys causing havoc, during World War II he was also given the name "Jaw Ripper" for his brutal way of finishing his enemies. He is also shown to be cannibalistic like his father, as he tends to eat what remains of his victims, though he mainly allow his henchdemon Y'golonac to eat the corpses to leave no traces.
However his immoral nature leads him to be dislike by many, even by the other Prime Omegas who despise him for his murderously insane behavior even distrusting him due to his tendency to manipulate others like pawns and dispose of them once they no longer serve him. Even Nekrozoth doesn't trust the Crawling Chaos as he sees him as a potential problem to his plans, often referring him as a "trickster" as a result. Not even the psychotic Strife and D'Loki themselves cannot stand with Niklovich's chaotic sadism. Though a selfish egotist with little care for others even to his fellow Prime Omegas, he seemed to somewhat care for his henchman Y'golonac as he never seem to yell at him, hurt him, threaten to mutilate or kill him, and is very tolerate of his brutish behavior and does compliment on his gruesome killings. This "care" is limited however as he tends to sees him like some kind of toy of mass destruction and treats him like how he treats everyone else, a lackey, only using him because he is useful for his various schemes and knowing that he could end humanity. He only respects him due to Y'golonac's equally deprive nature and not as a person, since he tends to respects those who share a similar sadistic personality like how Nekrozoth does, who Niklovich does show a multitude of respects and praise for due to Nekrozoth's status as "the most evil being in the omniverse". Once Y'golonac did get killed, Niklovich was only upset due to the fact that he lost his "favorite toy" and a useful asset to his plans. He later shrugs it off and claims that he'll get another person to replace Y'golonac.
He is not loyal nor cares about his father Nekrozoth despite his great respects towards him, which is unsurprising as he was taught to not care for anyone as affection is designed by the weak. This is a recurring trait among many Omegas, which makes Niklovich one of the most treacherous of the bunch. He shown to be relentless and megalomaniacal that even his own men and his own allies shown to dislike him. Along with theses traits, he is also tyrannical towards his followers and often punishes them for the smallest reasons or just for his own enjoyment which demonstrates how pitiless he can be. He does fear his father's wrath, knowing full will about his abilities on inflicting pain that even masochists like himself dare not want to experience.
He is fully aware of what a narcissistic monster that he is and the atrocities he is committing, and takes great pride of the reputation he has of being so. He rarely ever try to excuse his actions if the person is aware of his true nature, and if they don't then he try to make up several backstories and excuses that paints him as a tragic figure in order to manipulate others. He also posses a hunger for power, just like his father, having a thirst for omniversal domination so that he could freely do whatever he please with no one getting in his way. Other than that, he also seeks to obtain ultimate power and has made multiple attempts at manipulating his father for his own gain. He would go to extreme length to gain power and complete omniversal hegemony, such as releasing the Leviathans for ultimate power and so that he could establish an age of nightmare and terror. He also has fascination for fascism, tyranny, and dictatorship, since he shows some admiration towards ruthless fascist leaders like Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini. He also participated in World War II and the Nazi Party, using the war to kill Allied Soldiers and innocent civilians for sport. He also has been longing to make his own fascist empire which he hoped would expand across dimension conquering worlds and decimating those who oppose him, and spread destruction and chaos. This makes him a would-be conqueror of worlds, which makes him in similar ties with his other brother Mendax. He designed his fascist empire after the Nazis like any other fictional empires, this maybe a call-back to his time serving the Axis powers during World War II and he has since showed respects for their inhumanity and crimes against humanity.
He has some traits of an omnicidal maniac, since he had wiped out entire species, started a devastating war between two universe, wanting to bring destruction and death where ever he does and tried to release the Leviathans who in turn would devour universe, though he is not complete omnicidal maniac. As stated before, he is more hegemonic like his twin which also contrast his father who sought the destruction of the omniverse in order to reshape it in his image. While Niklovich is okay with "breaking his toys", he does not want to wipe them out completely unless he feels like it or grew bored out of them, since he prefer torturing others for pleasure and killing them in the most painful way imaginable even if it's slow and agonizing. He doesn't seek to annihilate all life in the omniverse since that would mean that he'll lose his favorite "toys" being all living beings in existence. While he does sought the destruction of all life on Earth he also has been reconsidering on enslaving them again and make them into cattle/prey for him to hunt while making the Earth his playground. However he does reveal that if he wanted too, he could attempt to bring the destruction of all realities and maybe reshape it in his own twisted image if he ever feels like it.
|“||From what we've studied from him, our friend Niklovich might be a psychopath of the high functioning kind. Lack of remorse or empathy, has a superficial personality and has the tendency to blend in with society in order to lose his tracks from the authorities, doesn't show concern for his actions, and has an incredibly competent and high intellect. Not only that, this man or this thing has the power to end all of humanity. We might be facing a major problem here.||„|
|~ Pandora File's bio on Niklovich's psychopathy.|
Despite being a powerful godlike being with immense powers, as mentioned before, he possesses some traits of psychopathy:
- He shows zero remorse for his actions or any signs of guilt, showing no care on who he hurts or how he hurts them.
- Has committed several crimes on an early age, from assault, animal cruelty to outright murdering one of his siblings.
- Very calculating and cunning than a low functioning psychopath. However he is extremely cold and ruthless.
- Being a very violent and impulsive to others.
- Lacks care and/or empathy towards others, even his own family and his henchdemon Y'golonac. Showing only care for nothing but himself, showing that he is noting but a egotistical monstrous narcissist with self-entitlement. Also he doesn't show any emotional connection with others.
- Despite his behavior that might have paint him as insane if not psychotic, he is actually a very sane and his so-called "insanity" was merely a facade to gain sympathy of others in order for him to manipulate them.
- Pretends to be nice, adopting a superficial personality. However, he is very cruel and sadistic and made painfully obvious in-universe that he is merely faking his affability. Only using his affability to blend in society and is an expert liar.
- Lacks any form of conscience, or any care of what he does or how does his it. Showing immorality, showing no signs of moral standards or limits in his cruelty.
Unlike his henchdemon and fellow Prime Omega, Y'golonac, he is high functioning psychopath or at least possess some traits of them. While Y'golonac is a low functioning sociopath.
One of his well known trait is his love for causing pain and madness to others, sometimes for no reason other than taking sheer pleasure in it. His only motive is to relish in spreading destruction across the omniverse, torturing others for his amusement and driving them insane after words. He also delights in psychologically abusing them like his minion Y'golonac does, and if he doesn't feel like torturing others than he either have the person killed or have one of his pawns to torture his victims for him. He will also kill anyone and anything his archenemy, Randolf Carter, cares for just to spite him as he did when making a recording of him brutally torturing one of Randolf's friends alive.
|“||I welcome pain!||„|
|~ Niklovich when about to be stabbed by Randolf/Dracula's accursed sword.|
Due to his tolerance for pain and regenerative abilities, he often injuring or scarring himself for his own amusement. From cutting his face off, breaking his fingers, and literally ripping his heart out just to show that he is immune to pain and shows signs of him enjoying it.
However he does have limits, that being that he fears his father due to the fact that his father is capable of inflicting pain unimaginable that even masochists themselves dare not want to experience. However, this make him a bit hypocritical as he despises masochist due to the fact that he finds them annoying to torture and no fun when they are unable to be in agony if they enjoy it, thus torturing them makes it no fun to him.
|“||You may see yourself as this all-powerful invincible force of chaos. But to me, in my eyes, you are nothing but a wicked egotistical child playing God!||„|
|~ Randolf Carter calling Niklovich out for his childish behavior.|
As stated by Randolf Carter, he is simply "a wicked egotistical child playing god". Even despite being a powerful ancient immortal being, he has a very childish behavior like having tantrums similar to what a spoiled brat has when things don't go his way or if he doesn't get the things he wanted. Another thing is that he treats anything, even his ow powers as mere toys and doesn't really take responsibility for anything even his own failures. Even his acts of spite towards his enemies have childish reasons, including his reason on his multiple attempts on eradicating humanity and vampire as he believe they don't love him enough. He also has the tendencies to be envious of others if they have something that he doesn't have and would most likely kill them for that reason. He is also very, very petty such as his reason for his multiple attempts on eradicating all of humanity and vampire kind as he believe they didn't show enough love/worship to him. He would also kill any of his minions for whatever reason, from looking at him funny or simply correcting him on minor things.
|“||Life, care, dreams, hope, and morality. What a big joke, what's even the purpose of having them if they don't matter to others anyway? Why show love to others you claim to "care for" if they are bound to die one day? Why bother dreaming if they are gonna get crushed? Why hope for things to come if they are not gonna happen? Morality is for those who are too weak to do things real man could do, that's not just weakness my friend that is cowardice. Why am I saying this? Well, life is like a toy, you play with it and when you abused it too long then they are surely to break. If I break one of my toys, then all well I've got plenty of more. Life is short as they always say, so why not make the best of it and just let loose and go wild! Be free to do what ever the hell you want and do whatever you think you have the right to do! Sure some of the stuff I do surely had people hating me and wanting me dead, but I don't care! If I wanted, I would just have try to have everyone dead! I would try to make a reality bomb to decimate this joke of a omniverse and maybe start a new in my twisted image or just die in the explosion as a result. I don't care, life is my toy which i would play with and break whenever I want!||„|
|~ Niklovich's nihilistic speech|
He is also something of a nihilist, just like his father Nekrozoth is himself. Since he believes that life and thinks he can kill and torture whenever he wants. If he ends up "breaking" one person then all well, there's billions of if infinite more left to toy with. He doesn't care if he dies, just as long as he gets his enjoyment. He views positive stuff such as morality, hope, and care as mere jokes to him and weaknesses designed by the weak to oppress the strong especially morality. As such, if reality is a toy then he thinks he could play with it whenever he wants and break it if he wanted, and do whatever he please even if his cruel actions would lead him to his own demise one day. He wouldn't mind if a hero would kill him, as long as he gets his fun then there's almost nothing that could stop him from having his twisted sense of entertainment.
|“||Listen to everything I say that comes out of my mouth Mr. Corvan. Every single word I say is important. Unlike you, I know how these guys function and how they act. They will not stop until these guys with their "righteousness" and '"good deeds" will not stop until they take us down and "save the day once again". I know how their weak "morality", determination, and good hearts works. So I suggest not to underestimate them Mr. Corvan.||„|
|~ Niklovich warning Constatine Corvan to never underestimate the heroes.|
Nyarlathotep has full control over his actions and can tell the difference between right and wrong, despite being born in a lab facility and was created by Nekrozoth as a Leviathan-Omega hybrid, and being born as a chaos obsessed psychopath. He has moral understanding on what he is, and takes pride in his behavior and atrocities and openly enjoys on what he is. He also can understand human emotions and how people would react and how they will behave as shown that he took advantage on Lilith's love for humans and her human lover Adam. He knows how other species moral standards works, even when facing the heroes he shown to know how to use their heroism against them in given situation.
He also stated that has full control over his actions and chose to be the monster he is due to his joy for causing pain, and claimed that he learns from others about the meaning of right and wrong in order to use that to easily manipulate others to do his bidding. He uses propaganda, fear tactics, and often uses the emotions of others such as they desires (like love, money, power) for his own advantage. He also has knowledge on psychology, which he uses to abuse others mentally and tell which person is sane or insane and know what sort of disorder they have. There is also the fact that he has nigh-omniscient knowledge on science, magic, and even different species (ranging from their culture, personality, and whatnot). Even when given the chance to redeem himself, but he simply rejected them as he believe "redemption isn't my style".
To strengthen this claim further, he unlike the other children who was born in the same lab willingly became a chaos-loving psychopath as he found his joy in murder and torture when he bullied, assaulted and later brutally murder some of his siblings born in the same lab as him. This was his reason why he took joy from the carnage he inflicts, and willingly became the monster he enjoys being.
Due to being a spawn of Nekrozoth, Niklovich possess most of his father's cruelty and chaotic nature. He praises his father for his needless acts of destruction and murder, since those are the things he enjoy inflicting onto others. However, he like his father does not really care for him but he does fear him due to the fact that Nekrozoth has the ability to inflict pain that even masochists dare not want to experience. He does make attempts at manipulating him, and want to surpass him in being the most evil being in the entire omniverse.
Before his twin, Xerakiel Beta, became the Master Magus/Malroc, Niklovich used to bully him often and make fun on how weak he his. When Xerakiel became the Master Magus, Niklovich gave him a bit more respects than he did before but still picks on him regardless. They hate each other as much as they hate the heroes, which lead them to constantly try to back-stab each other whenever they get the chance. He often make fun of him whenever Magus fails or lose his temper, and try to push his buttons whenever he gets the chance too. He also acts as a polar opposite to him in a way: Magus is considered in some ways to be the "order" to Niklovich's "chaos, being a pragmatic yet ruthless warmonger who don't go around causing chaos unless it is needed and tries to plan things fro behind the scenes and is merely motivated to be stronger than anyone else, and is more calculating and plots to do the worse things possible. Niklovich is a chaotic nightmarish being who delights in random acts of cruelty, enjoys dominating others, and commits every horrific acts for no reason other than to be as evil as possible.
However despite their immense hatred towards each other, they can cooperate with one another in terms of evil plans. They also tend to work together in certain matters such as plotting on how to get rid of their enemies, causing mass chaos in their bid for power, and has once worked together in trying to defeat the Maestro when they decided that he is a threat to their schemes. Though they still mock each other and tend to betray each other when the moments calls for it, especially since Magus is known for switching sides when things get too much (like a dirty coward).
Powers and Ability
|“||Fool! I'm am all-powerful! Unstoppable! I've killed billions if not trillions! YOU ARE NOTHING COMPARED TO ME YOU ANTS!!||„|
|~ Niklovich's boasting about his power.|
- Essokinesis; He is a powerful being capable of twisting the fabric of reality in his image, and is shown to be more powerful than his twin brother Master Magus and even other beings like Legend in his god form, Tartarus, Xeron, and D'Loki. This ability allowed him to reshape certain objects into weapons for battle, from turning a chair into a gun to making a truck into a tank. He is also capable of travelling into other plans of existence, including alternate dimensions and planets.
- Omnimanifestation; Has the ability to shapeshift into anything he wishes, even taking forms for lesser beings to comprehend what they could see of him: To human he appears human, to a vampire he appears as a vampire. He tends to shapeshift into other people in order to mimic them to other blend in or to frame his victims of the crimes he committed.
- Nigh-Omniscience; He claims to know all sorts of forbidden knowledge, as he claims to be know almost everything across multiple realities. Having near infinite knowledge on alternate timelines, dimensional to omniversal travel, and even species. He know different types of cultures, psychology, science and magic which he uses often. He uses this to help him manipulate others who seek knowledge, psychologically abuse and torture others. This also go hand and hand with his torture methodology.
- Necromancy; Has immense power and influence over the dead as he is able to resurrect those he murdered in his lifetime and use them as his undead slaves soldiers. He used this power to perform experiments on the corpses, using the body parts to make monsters such as the Vamperiacs.
- Immortality; Due to being a deity, he is an extremely old entity who caused chaos and misery for several millennia. Also has an immense healing factor, as shown as he often starts slice and later cutting off his own face which later heals rapidly afterwords.
- Umbramancy; Controls a substance called Shadow-Flame which he uses to make his own hair, clothing, and sometimes use this substance for combat by summoning shadow tentacles or make a spear made of shadows. He also has a form/avatar known as "The Dark Man" which is an entity made of shadows.
- Telepathy; Can read the minds of others just so he could read what the person is thinking and unlock some of his secrets which he would use to manipulate them.
- Infernokinesis; When he was in Hell spreading carnage and bloodshed as usual, he has the ability to control Hell-fire. He once engulf his fists into hellish flame (making it a flaming fist) which would melt any human metal once he so touches it. In one of his forms/avatars, he was able to breath fire from his mouth.
As power he is, he is not really invincible and has a few weaknesses.
- Divine Weapons; He is vulnerable to divine weaponry, be blessed/cursed by divine magic or a divine god. They (if used properly) can nulify his healing factor and cause actual damage to him.
- His own sadism and destructive behavior; While he is indeed a extremely intelligent creature, his own sadism has proven to get the best of him in multiple occasions, since he tends to get reckless and make brash decisions for the sake of causing chaos for its own sake. He tends to simply torture his victims, or give them slow and painful deaths instead of outright killing them when they could pose a threat to him. It serves as a reason why Magus, while weaker than Niklovich, is smarter than Niklovich as he has some control over destructive behavior for the sake of his plans, while Niklovich doesn't bother trying to contain his hostile demeanor.

|~ Niklovich's final words before his death.|
- He is based on the character of the same name made by Horror writer H.P. Lovecraft, the creator of the Cthulhu Mythos where Nyarlathotep came from.
- He is also has some inspiration from The Master from Doctor Who.
- BrandonDarkOne47 often compares him to the likes of Carnage from Marvel Comics and The Joker due to Niklovich's behavior. He even noted that he wanted to make him look like Black Hat from Villainous a little bit.
- Out of all of Nekrozoth's children, he is probably the only one not to be abused by Nekrozoth. However Nekrozoth does not trust Niklovich due to being a deceitful manipulator.
- Despite being a messanger to the Prime omegas, he rarely lives up to his role which is why he let Ezekiel Stayne to take his job instead.
