Nikolas, the Dwarven Paddlestriker
Nikolas is the guardian of the Santascape, who has gone mad. He is encountered in the middle of the third level. There are also 9 snowmen on the third level.
When he is first hit, the player learns the lore Santascape: Paddlestriker.
When he dies, the exit portal appears, and his snowmen disappear (along with any other character on the level who isn't part of the player's party). Then two elves (one red and one green) will appear, who were captured by Nikolas but freed when the player killed him. They will thank the player by each giving them an artifact as a reward. The player will receive the achievement Merry wintertide! for freeing the little helper elves.
The player will receive the achievement Santassacre! if they kill both little helper elves after freeing them.
