Nicholas Reilly is Nikki Reilly's father. He's the Deputy Directory for DARPA (Defense Advanced Projects Research Agency). He and Lucinda, Nikki's mother, are divorced, but with Nikki's emergence as a mutant they're starting to spend more time together when Nikki can have contact with them; Nikki wants them back together, and had high hopes for Christmas 2006, but Nicholas had to stay for work.

Mr. Reilly visits his daughter on campus.
He, and the rest of the family, visit on Parent's Day.
