Nikita Romanova was once a promising ballet student, before he was forcibly recruited to the KGB and turned into an assassin and spy…
Naturally somewhat short and lean, Nikita relies primarily on his agility and subterfuge, as well as his good looks, to get what he needs. That said, don’t mistake him for just another pretty face. He’s still absurdly flexible and strong from years of ballet training and subsequent years of military training. He has more than once performed what Celeste refers to as his ‘choke a bitch’ move – which mainly involves strangling your target to death with your thighs.
Generally: don’t get on his bad side. He’ll kill you and make it look goooood while he does it.
Nikita goes by the name “Nathaniel Romanoff” now, and just tries to keep the past in the past as much as he can.
He has a sort of dysfunctional vaguely mother/son relationship with SHIELD director, Nicolette ‘Nic’ J. Fury. Even if he’d never admit it, he thinks of Nic like family.
Celeste Barton is his closest friend and one of the few who knows for certain that Nikita is actually bisexual, but he’s also recently struck up an unlikely relationship with Christine Roger’s old friend, Janine ‘Bucky’ Barnes. The two of them make a terrifyingly intense, but adorable couple.
More genderbends and other goodies are on the way. Stay tuned 😀
