Nicky is best friends with fellow F1 Meena Chowdhury. Nicky is from a working class family and has had to try a lot harder in life than Meena who is middle class, although they both see the other as family. When she first appeared in We Need to Talk About Fredrik, she is depicted as rough around the edges but very caring on the inside. She doesn't like kids and has trouble controlling ADHD sufferer Thomas, son of a patient.
