Nicholas Natsilane Maza or Nick is a descendant of the Maza family in 2198 and also of Natsilane. He is one of the protagonists in Timedancer. Nicholas (Nick for short) was raised among gargoyles and identifies with them closely, having even undergone Bushido training in Ishimura. He believes in their ideal of protection, and, in fact, comes as close as any human can to being a gargoyle without actually becoming one physically. Though, like Samson, he tends to jump into a fight without thinking and sometimes needs the help of his friends Delilah and Zafiro.
