Bio:

Nikolai Krevchenko (or Trigger) is Lord Markus da Escalie’s longest serving henchman, he was recruited into Inquisitorial duty by Markus whilst on Perlia working training new recruits marksmen skills. Though Markus quickly assumed that Trigger had earned his nickname for his shooting prowess, Trigger quickly “corrected” him by saying that his old squad mates had previously commented on his equine features. This was just a show of things to come as Trigger has the typical sarcastic and cutting squady sense of humour.

Trigger had been serving with Markus for over 2 decades when he met Penelope, Trigger that noticed some of her other traits and mentioned these to Markus. It was only after she was accepted as a potential recruit to Markus’ warband that Trigger realised it was the similarities to his dead lover Ulrika whom he had lost some 26 Terran standards ago. Not only the physical similarities in her eyes and her cheeks but also in her impulsive (almost to the point of recklessness) personality.

Many times during Penelope’s rise through the ranks he has had to chase after her after a near suicidal charge trying to protect her. He realises that saving Penelope will not bring back Ulrika but he still feels guilty about not being able to save Ulrika and this has sometimes had an affect on Trigger’s professionalism.

Within the last few Terran standards Markus has given Penelope individual commands as a means to test her before bestowing the full rank of Inquisitor and Trigger suggested that he go with her as Markus’ eyes during the process. Trigger suspects that Markus knows his true reasons but has not questioned it. Penelope often looked to Trigger for guidance on her Leadership, even though he suggested it on many occasions for her to “get to know the lads” she hadn’t seemed to have taken this on board.

Though he hide this from his comrades, Trigger sometimes falls into quite deep depression over the death of Ulrika, a situation which is not helped by his unjustified guilt thinking he is defiling her memory with his actions regarding Penelope and the absence of his daughter to whom he writes to every week. Unbeknown to him his letters have intercepted by the Inquisition and deemed Classified so have not reached their destination.
