Who is Sturmhond AKA Nikolai Lantsov, in Shadow and Bone?

In the latest season of Shadow and Bone, we meet a privateer who addresses himself as Sturmhond. The person is said to have a fleet of ships with a few crew members, including the twins Talya and Tomar. However, later, we came to know that he is the Prince of Ravka, named Nikolai Lantsov.

He is the second son of Queen Tatiana and Alexander III. However, the rumors about him stated that he was an illegitimate son of a sea trader Magnus Opjer and the queen. He took many different jobs throughout the years because he wanted to experience a life that he did not get a chance to see closely.

Even though Nikolai is not a Grisha, he provided a grand alliance to the sun summoner Alina in her battle against the Darkling. He also kept a marriage proposal in front of Alina as he believed their marriage could help both of them become stronger. But as Alina had feelings for Mal, she rejected the proposal.

Talking about Nikolai’s abilities, he is a skilled fighter with proficiency in handling numerous weapons. Moreover, since his childhood, he has been an incredible inventor. For instance, he redesigned a clock into a gadget as a child.

The role of Nikolai is played by the Irish actor Patrick Gibson. In 2022, the 27-year-old London-based actor joined the cast as Nikolai in Shadow and Bone Season 2.
