|Type of Appearance:||Direct|
|Relatives:|| Theodo (father)|
Nithard was the middle child and second son of Theodo, a village blacksmith and his wife Alianora. When Nithard was old enough, he joined his older brother Einhard at work in their father's smithy to learn the trade. The two were taken with stories about Holger from the great war of Law vs. Chaos that had taken place before they were born. They were especially interested in whatever tales their mother would tell since she knew and accompanied the heroic knight during the conflict.
Nithard enthusiastically greeted Holger when he came into their village some thirty years after the war.
