Main article:World War III

Sense he is also the pipeline between the church and the military, it was a simple matter for him to fake the Patriarch's signature by electronically signing a random dummy document on a tablet and then attached the handwriting data to a more dangerous document there by starting the war. He then set about cordoning off large amounts of land and displacing the people living there, all to make the preparation for the Star of Bethlehem though he had no knowledge of the what the area was truly used for at that time.[3]

After Fimmia summoned the Archangel Gabriel Nikolai starts ordering around to take out Academy City's forces to which Fimmia just laughed at him before stating that he was done using him and the Russian Orthodox Church. Fimmia then goes on to comment about Nikolai's incompetence for not seeing the betrayal coming and why he would make a poor Patriarch. Trying desperately to save face he reminds him of his subordinates stationed around the Star of Bethlehem to create it, Fimmia was unimpressed by that threat and reviles that all his actions thus far had given him access to normal magic once again allowing for him to maintain the star by himself. In rage of Fimmia's comments Nikolai immediately orders the Russian forces to attack the star.[4]

When he noticed that despite half her body having already been disintegrated she seemed to be in no pain at all. As stands transfixed at her regeneration she gives one of the ways he could have faked the Patriarch's signature and that he was planing to assassinate him later and assume the mantle him self. For his part Nikolai could only wonder how his Water of Death could had failed when Vasilisa reviles she posses the Water of Life in her body. After witnessing the defeat of his greatest weapon he becomes momentary helpless in which Vasilisa kills him.[5]
