He's ten and ninety simultaneously, his mother was murdered and his sister is a stranger. He's got a deck of cards that he holds onto like a lifeline and an Italian-English dictionary that's old as hell and crumbling, but it's not as old as he is, and that makes him laugh.
The River Lethe was supposed to take away their memories, but Nico remembers his past, his days at home, the times he spent with his sister and mother at parades Mussolini hosted, where Maria sang the national anthem. The river tried to take away everything Nico cherished, and it could have been pure desperation or grief that made him remember his past.
Nico didn't know.

Nico was resilient.
He was ten and ninety. His birth certificate most likely read ‘presumed dead’. There was no one left in the world from his time who would remember him. He didn’t know anything that happened during World War II, only that they lost. Mamma was dead. So was Nonno and Nonna.
The river Lethe may have tried to take his memories of a past that Nico had no intention of losing, but nothing could ever take away the devastation he felt as his world crashed around him in this day and age.
(Nico had stubbornness in spades, and children of Hades were well renowned for their bitterness.)
