Nikolai is a private in the Arctic Forces guarding Oblask Dam.
After hearing gunshots in the lower levels of the facility, he goes to explore the underground labs with Sgt. Shivers. They encounter a zombified soldier, who kills them both. He later appears as a standard zombie in the area where he was killed.
- Nikolai has the distinction of being the only generic Russian military character to be given a forename, rather than a title, in TimeSplitters 2.
- He and Sgt. Rock reuse most of the voice clips of the following TimeSplitters 1 characters: Male Soldier, Male SWAT, Shock Trooper and Veiled SWAT.
- The zombie that kills Nikolai in the opening cutscene to Siberia appears to be his undead counterpart, Private Poorly.
- In the later part of the story mission, both Nikolai and Sgt Shivers' corpses can be found in the dig site. However, once the system disk has been installed, and you go for the Time Crystal (or had already picked it up), they will rise from the dead to attack you, just like all the other zombies.
- Nikolai was once playable in TimeSplitters Future Perfect, along with other military characters from TimeSplitters 2, as seen in this trailer.
