I asked Betsy to design this character based on the description provided by his creator, Hazel.
Niko is basically like her at age 12.
He's a roo/coyote hybrid and possibly a friend of Erica's. :3
And, in the heart of 199X, he wears 80s hand-me-downs provided by his cousins or Goodwill places because of his family's financial issues.
