"The pouring rain sticks my hair to my face
An empty gaze is all I have left
The stars that once lit my way have dimmed, the sky turned grey,
The path, once so clear, faded away"

Veronika Florentine d'Roux, also known as Nikki Floren is the leader of the Followers of Sorrow's Path, a group of camp followers dedicated to feeding, healing and aiding those hurt or displaced by the Severing War. She was once a member of the Stargazers, a traditionalist holy order of the Church of Light, but she was branded a heretic and excommunicated with the rest of the order and left Temple in 1372 to search for the fabled son of Kira.

She is a member of the holy House d'Roux.

Biography


Nikki became a missionary for the Church of Light. She was trained as both a person to spread faith and to defend herself in hostile territories. She learned from her Great Grandfather, Cardinal Gustav Matthieu d'Roux before his death, about Kira and Her vanishing. Nikki took up faith of Kira even as the church began to officially move away from Her and was deemed a heretic when she refused to privately acknowledge that Kira was no longer the higher goddess reigning in the Church of Light. She fled Temple with the bracelet of St. Annabel and followed rumors about Kira's son towards Yorik.

Prince Rhyn

Resting outside the town of Lon Kuel in 1375, Nikki saw a group of soldier picking on a young elf in town. The soldiers soon turned their attention to Nikki, but the elf knocked a soldier over the head with a clay pot, provoking the others into action. Nikki quickly used her merciful bow to knock them all out and later excused the soldiers. After the young elf awoke, he gave Nikki an amulet with his personal knot on it in case she ever needed help.

Several days later, Nikki came to the elf for help with a contingent of Vathroni soldiers harassing her healers. It was then she discovered the elf's true identity as Rhyn Tywysog, Prince of Tir'Ein. Rhyn ordered the captain of his personal guard to take care of the issue and invited Nikki to dinner. Rhyn's personal chaplain, Valaphia Glasrad later gave Nikki a magical quiver to thank her for serving the prince.
