Nike pronounced Neekay is the Hero of the show. Nike039s father had always wished to be a hero but due to the lack of any great evil to fight against he had to give his dream up. Still he made his son undergo hard training as a child in hopes that one day a great evil would arise and Nike could fight it. Because of this Nike is a competent although cowardly fighter however like Kukuri he is initially immature and inexperienced. Nike is from Jimuna Mura which translates to Plain Old Town. Initially Nike does not want to be a hero but his parents end up forcing him to. Source: Wikipedia
