Animal Lover

Nathaniel has always had a deep love and respect for animals, and it was one of the deciding factors in becoming a ranger.

Stubborn

Nate is a dog with a bone once he sets hid mind on something. Little can turn him from his goals, not even love or money. It was his stubborn personality that got him into the mess that led him to being a warden to begin with.

Dancing

During his time in the Free Marches, outside of all the tournaments he entered, he also went to a lot of parties and turned out to be quite the dancer. He usually had a line of ladies, and sometimes even a guy or two, lined up hoping for a dance with him.

Family

Family is everything to Nate, both his biological family and now his Warden family.

HISTORY

At first Nate wasn't happy about being sent away to the Free Marches away from his home in Ferelden, even though he knew it was for training. Upon acclimating himself, he grew to think of the Free Marches as a second home. He immersed himself in the culture, competing in multiple tournaments and going to lots of parties.

Nate had quite the life for himself in the Free Marches, including a fiance, but when he heard the news from Ferelden about what his uncle and father had done and what had happened to his family as a result, he couldn't stand idly by and let the Grey Wardens just take over his ancestral home. With vengeance in his heart, he left the Free Marches, and his fiance, to try and take his home back. Things didn't go as planned and when he ended up taking warden vows, he decided to break off contact with his fiance, thinking that if she thought he was dead it was better than finding out he was a warden.

Despite how angry Nate was at the Wardens, over the years he has grown to find the Wardens as a second family and has made a few really good friends within the Wardens. There are days he wonders what his life might have been like if he hadn't left the Free Marches looking for revenge, but he can't turn back the clock and he can't cure himself of being a warden, so he sees little point in dwelling. He's spent much of the last decade or so helping to rebuild the ranks of the Ferelden wardens. When all the nonsense with the Conclave and Corypheus went down, he initially joined with the wardens in Orlais, but soon realised that there was a shit ton of crazy going on that he wanted no part of. He took off and after reporting to the wardens in the Anderfels, he offered his services to the Inquisition.

He now has a place with the Aerial Protectorate at Soldier's Peak.
