|The Hives member|
|Real name||Niklas Almqvist|
|Born||26 January, 1977|
Nicholaus Arson is the older brother of Howlin' Pelle Almqvist.
Arson is extremely active on stage and is known for his crazy stage antics.
Some of his known stage antics are:
- Prolonged stares that last a little longer than the targeted audience member can handle.
- Throwing his guitar over his shoulder and catching it as it swings back around.
- Licking his microphone stand.
- Crowd surfing, though the timing of this is highly unpredictable.
- Throwing guitar plectrums at the crowd.
- Licking his guitar plectrum and sticking it on someone's forehead.
He sometimes faints on stage due to rocking out in excess of the human ability.
