“Nick”, or Nicholas Ambrosuis Aloysuis Gautier is my favorite character and protagonist of the book Inferno by Sherrilyn Kenyon. Nick is funny and sarcastic, coming equipped with wit and humor that can make any teen laugh. He as able to rise above situations that other YA protagonist would not be able to overcome.
