Appearance: Nick is an eye catchingly handsome Arabic man in his early 20’s. He moves with the fluidity of a professional dancer and has the muscles of a fitness model.

Personality: Nick is outgoing and charming, and has a personality that can fill a room. He’s also driven, judgmental, and has a (usually cold) temper.

Interests: Law, Sketch Art, Baseball and other sports, recently the Occult… Nick speaks English and Arabic fluently and enough Spanish to get by.

History: It was all very biblical; A rich and well connected first generation American man’s wife turned up sterile. They both wanted children. He had lots of contacts with the family back in the home country. The family quietly arranged for her handmaid a distant (poor) relative to have the man’s child instead. Unknown to him she got pregnant by her boyfriend instead. For a twist on the story she gave birth to identical twins. The couple “generously” paid her double.

Officially there was no adoption, the entire transaction “never happened”. Selma Mubarak went “on vacation to visit her family” for a year and came back with “her” children, Musa and Nizsm. Growing up in America the boys acquired the nick names “Moe” (for Moses) and “Nick”.

Despite their soap opera beginning, the boys grew up in a happy, stable family in Boston. As twins raised together will, the boys developed separate interests. The extremely athletic Nick loved baseball and thought he might be good enough to go pro. Musa was much more bookish, more charismatic, and had better grades. Nick found he had an eye for sketch art. Musa ran for class president. Post high school life Musa intended to go to law school at Cambridge and then become a Prosecutor and then Politician. Nick tried out for Pro-baseball, was actually accepted into the junior leagues, and instead decided life was too short. Instead he decided to join the police force for a few years then start his own security company.

Roughly the same time Nick started going to the police academy, something happened to Moe during his Junior year. Moe became distant from their parents, and sort of distracted from life. He started missing classes and tests, but somehow his grades didn’t slip. Nick talked to him a few times but Moe didn’t seem to be on drugs. In fact he seemed better than ever; Moe had a presence, he was just more… ‘there’. Moe alluded to a ‘higher calling’ but Nick wasn’t able to get him to open up about it.

6 weeks after Nick joined the police force, Moe was found dead in an alley with another Boston University student. The press and Nick’s police contacts claimed he’d been mauled by a bear. Nick was devastated.

Three days later Horus appeared in Nick’s apartment, gave him some relics, and introduced Nick’s ‘spirit guide’ Musa. Overjoyed to see his brother ‘alive’, Nick rushed forward and slammed into the wall behind Moe. When he dropped gear his brother vanished and his sword turned back into his nightstick. Horus explained Musa was back from the underworld only as a spirit. Nick would need his sword to speak with him, and although to the eye it was just a nightstick, contained inside was the ghost of Musa’s sword. As a final gift Horus told Nick the sword hadn’t been quenched yet. If Nick quenched it on his brother’s murderer, a piece of the monster’s power would remain in it.

Two days later Nick tracked down his brother’s ‘bear’ and emptied his service gun into it and then stabbed it with the sword until it stopped moving. Since then Nick is always in the thick of things whenever something really bad or unusual happens to the Boston PD. Several of his fellow officers have seen ‘unnatural’ events first hand. The department as a whole has somewhat accepted Nick's "situation" and learned enough to help oppose the coming darkness. Even some of the ones who “don’t want to know” have accepted on some level that “the rookie” can track like a police dog and is as good as CSI for on the spot stuff.

This is Moe's stats, most of it from when he was alive. Now that he's a ghost he has different powers, and some of his stats have gone down (Legend being the most obvious). We've seen a non-cannon look at some of what he was up to, but in cannon he really was a pre-law politically active student going to U of B who became a Scion, and then got killed a few months later.
