    Appearance: Nate has a natural element of athleticism to him.  He's always enjoyed various sports and his penchant for obvious musculature shows it.  His general appearance is angular with wide set shoulders, tapering torso, and defined bone structure.  At 5'8 he's taller than average there is a lingering air of lankiness to him that belies his age.  His eyes and hair are a remarkably similar shade of rich brown and he is right handed.  When he is not in school uniforms his attire is befitting his family's social standing.  He is well at ease in muggle fashions though can don wizard robes if the occasion calls.    

    1867| Born on the bitterly cold morning of February 20th.  The air was still and the snow was thick on the ground.  Though his father has children from his first marriage Nate is the first child of Godric and Valencia.  
    1871| As punishment for catching frogs and trying to keep them in various places throughout the house he is paddled and not permitted to play outside for two days.  On the morning of the second day his temper tantrum results in his first display of magic; shattering the nearest window.
    1875| Deciding reading in a tree was far better than reading in the library he breaks his right arm and left wrist after a branch gave out from underneath him.  He is still required to complete the reading assignment.
    1877| Nate is caught trying to kiss the daughter of a housemaid and his etiquette lessons are subsequently doubled on top of the usual round of lashings.
    1878| He goes to Hogwarts and is sorted into Gryffindor.
    1879| He is given a lashing and detention for a month for trespassing and climbing trees in the Forbidden Forest.
    1880| Tries out for Quidditch.  Finds out he is better suited for ground sports.
    1882| Nate takes on a rather impressive docket of OWL classes.  It seems to be the general consensus that he won't do well and to be fair his class performances are usually just this side of dismal but Nate is the sort who works best with a deadline and manages to do surprisingly well on essays and exams.  So surprised is one of his professors that  he insists on an investigation but it is eventually proven, without a doubt, that cheating was not involved.
    1883| During his sixth year he develops an interest in a 4th year named Cornelia Lestrange.  Though the two walk a curious line between close friends and something more she ends up being his first and second kiss.  Cornelia never returns to school after Christmas break.  She is abruptly married to her betrothed in an effort to curtail his penchant for scandal.  Nate exchanges a few letters with her but they soon stop and their connection is effectively severed by her new status as a married woman.
    1884|  Nate’s family is hit hard by the infamous Summer of ‘84.  Several members were stricken with the laughing plague, including himself.  He survived.  His brother and sister-in-law did not.  In a stunning course of events in his will Alexander leaves the family company in Nate’s hands.  Then the Hogsmeade fire strikes and Nate’s home is burned to the ground.  Because of the quarantine they have nowhere to go and if it were not for the hospitality of the Lynches they would have been forced to join the homeless masses in padmore park.  Eventually he is permitted into the exit tents and makes his way to London to spend the rest of his summer with August.    
    1885| Nate graduates and, per the requirements in Alexander’s last will, begins his internship at Wilde Enterprises under Mr. Longbottom.  He is to take over on his 21st birthday.
