Kadin Nelkan has no particular historical analogue, and has gone through some of the greatest changes amongst our primary cast during Black Rose’s development, though we always knew the sort of man he would be. From the script: “Balding and bearded, with a conspicuous scar from the crown of his head down his forehead. Other scars adorn his face as a history of violence – blunt and bladed. Yet he maintains an air of pride and discipline even Centor Aurelius cannot match. He’s a soldier’s soldier, a man’s man, an aged Duke Nukem.”
