Nik is a big Team Faerieland fan, but couldn't afford a ticket to the Altador Cup. He saw a costume contest advertised, where the winner would get a ticket, though when Nik turned up he saw that there were a lot of Neopets with better costumes. Valtonous Rea approached Nik after the contest, asking about his special customised buttons. Valtonous took one of the buttons to wear during the match, and in return gave Nik a ticket.
From the picture with the story, it appears that Nik is a yellow Blumaroo. He appeared in issue #23.
