When you first arrive in Echo Village, you witness Hossan and his son Niko leave the village to set up an inn in another town. When you build the Inn during Town Restoration Plan #3, Hossan and Niko will move back to Echo Village.

Niko is a jolly kid who seems to be happy about everything. He's happy about the Inn and he's happy about his friend, Toni. Niko is really happy about food. The poor guy gets hungry a lot, so he appreciates the variety of food ingredients that can be found in Echo Village.
