Niklos (also known as Strangerman2 and Nik) is one of the scientists of the Islands. He shares this responsibility with Scienziato, though they are wildly different. Niklos designed and created IntelligentMan. Niklos seems to care more about the well-being of the people of Deepshore. Niklos had become friends with David, and eventually told him the truth. This is what led David to his seclusion, hiding, and mental instability.
