Bringing down the Nikos Criminal Enterprise

Nikos is a recluse, and uses magic and servants to conduct all of his dealings. It is rare that he makes a public appearance, and it is likely that what people see are illusions, not the real Nikos. If one were to destroy Nikos’s methods of gaining capital, creating magical power, and maintaining his reputation, it might be possible to drive him out of hiding and be able to confront him, although one would need to be prepared to fight a very powerful vampire.
