Nicholas "Nicky" Roland is the one of the deuteragonists, of the book series Mostly Ghostly. Nicky and his sister Tara find themselves as ghosts in the begining of the series, with little recollection of their lives, no recollection of how they died, and with a new family living in their home, that can't see them. Nicky is currently seventeen years old and often slower than his younger sister.
He is tall and quite muscular with black hair and brown eyes.
Nicky is an average kind hearted teen. He often has small arguments with his sister Tara, but is very protective of her. Nicky is afraid when he finds out that he and Tara are ghosts, he is somewhat over it when he finds joy out of scaring Max and his brother Colin later on. When Max recovers a possesion of Nicky's (a shoebox with weird items) Nicky finds a picture of his family. Nicky becomes very sad when he discovers this, he even shares a cry with Tara over it. Nicky upon trying to be loyal, is quick to bail on something if it becomes bad.
Max Doyle (Friend)
Nicky is, at first, untrusting of the boy who occupies his bedroom, who is the only one who can see them, but soon develops blind faith in Max Doyle. Nicky is often the main character of the book switching back and forth with Max most often. Nicky and Tara make Max a deal that they can make his life better, if he, in return, must help them find their parents and protect them. Nicky and Max don't see eye to eye at first, but Max grows more attached to Nicky and Tara in time.
Tara Roland (Sister)
Tara is Nicky's sister. They often get into arguements, but he is very protective of her and cares for her very much and vice versa. They make a deal with Max to make his life better, if he can help them find their parents and protect them.
Possession: Like any other ghost, Nicky has the power to possess inanimate objects and human beings at will.
Intangibility: If Nicky walks through something, he dissolves and briefly flashes to his ghostly form. He can also make himself tangible at will.
Invisibility: Nicky, and his sister, Tara, can turn invisible at will.
- Nicky, just like Tara, is one of the few characters to have a different hair colour in each film he appears in. In the first film, his hair is a sandy brown while in the second and third film his hair is black.
