Embraced by the Elder Drake, Nathan was chosen to be Kindred for his desire to fight for his ideals. With his preferred weapon of knowledge, he survives each night seeking new knowledge and perspectives. Nathan has traveled all over the United States with his partner, Rochelle, meeting different Kindred and discussing many academic topics.
Before the Sabbat took Mobile, he managed the Ivory Education Fund. The Fund made it possible for young neonates with little resources and ability to attend a college institution. Nathan not only managed it, but utilized it to obtain a second college education.
Nathan has held a few positions in Griffin, such as Lesser Harpy under Mnsr. Ezekiel Cross of Venture, and as Primogen of Brujah. During both times, he strove for the betterment of the domain and assisted many in important tasks.
Some point during the 80s, Nathan lost Rochelle to the Sabbat. Nathan hunted those responsible for killing her. He saught new knowledge and power along his way to better equip himself against those he hunted.
A few years ago, he has allied himself with the Sjekna Brood, led by Ivan Sjekna. Through trial and ritual, he was accepted into their "family". This led to tensions between the Brujah of Georgia and the Sjekna, for they spoke differently but meant the same thing. Disagreements aside, Nathan chose to walk the line of loyalty between these two groups knowing well the difficulties. It was his hope to be a bridge between the two different cultures, for in his mind they walked different paths but their destinations were relatively the same. However, in the end, the two groups parted ways and Nathan became distant with the Sjeckna.
On April 2nd, 2016, Nathan and Mercy, ghoul of the Sjekna, were attacked en route to gather by numerous men with shotguns. Mercy perished in the attack with a note in her vest. This note challenged Nathan to meet with someone alone. This brought information leading to the whereabouts of his long lost partner, Rochelle. Presumed dead, Rochelle had been tortured for 31 years by the Sabbat he was hunting. Now freed, Rochelle and Nathan wander the nights seeking their revenge on any Sabbat they see, hoping to find the ones responsible.
