Girl Genius


Nickodeamus Yurkofsky first appears reading Advanced Mechanics for the Mad as Agatha makes her grand appearance on the Castle Wulfenbach in her pink unmentionables. This suggests he is a Spark, but it doesn't come into the story.

Along with Sleipnir and Z, he raises a dubious eyebrow at Princess Zulenna's haughty treatment of Agatha's alleged parentage and talents. The three proceed to explain their situation on Castle Wulfenbach, their history with Gilgamesh and to affirm their terror of Von Pinn (whom Agatha has yet to meet at this point). While providing this exposition, the three prepare something for Agatha to eat. It's irrelevant to the plot (and omitted from the novelization); nevertheless, 25% of his time on the page is spent cooking.

He is described as being "one of the nicer students", and cheerfully comments about how jumping out of a nice safe airship wearing a little blimp and a pair of wings into a nest of Slaver wasps is stupid, just before doing it anyway .

The dish he prepares with Sleipnir and Z strongly resembles those prepared by Lane's mom Jenny Myer (played by Kim Darby) in the movie Better Off Dead.
