Character Details

Raised in the hellish environment of a dying world, Nate learned early on how bad the world can become when evil has won the war. He saw too much horror and death his first years awake and he was marked forever. But once he realized he would die fighting, and it would be very soon, he lost all fear of death, and of almost anything else.

But he didn't find peace, he was too angry at the atrocities he saw and at seeing his friends dying. His rage drove him to fight harder, but also to recklessness and costly mistakes. When through cosmic happenstance he became the only survivor of the Age of Apocalypse, he was almost crushed by the guilt of the survivor.

A few years later, he is still haunted by nightmares and memories, and he is still quick to anger and resort to violence. He remains harsh and impatient, but also fearless and committed to prevent that what happened to his world happens again anywhere.

Despite having escaped his doomed world to a better one, Nate is quite aware he has chosen a life style that will bring him to an early grave. On consequence, he remain rootless, yet willing, even eager, to try new experiences, to meet interesting people, to live his life to the fullest when he is not risking it. He genuinely likes people and makes friends easily.
