Biography[edit | edit source]

Early Life[edit | edit source]

Nate was born to Emilia Haruspex and Will Sommerfold. Being the last survivor of the Sith, he had to take after his father's name to ensure the continuity of the bloodline. His mother was murdered before his birth which forced Richard to rip her corpse open to remove him, granting him the status of Wombling.

Richard Moreinstein, his mother's bloodbrother, was her appointed korumari. The Small Council imprisoned Nate's Psychimizois in a Crorteix to ensue his capabilities could be best used by the Court.

Nate knew James, his father's appointed rukoriak, before the events passed in the Citadel but his memory was concealed so he couldn't remember their encounters and therefore he wouldn't accidently account for them to the Council.

As a child, upon learning about the actual Grey War, he joined the Allegiance.

Previous to James's return[edit | edit source]

Previous to his encounter with Cat Beaufils, Nate was frequently seen in revelries and parties that ranged from underworld orgies to unbounded night clubs.

He was looking for a way to annul the bond tying him to the Crorteix.

Personality and Traits[edit | edit source]

He's depicted as nonchalant and conceited by Cat at first as he persists on being playful and reckless despite the direness of the situation.

He has a serious side that is often trimmed with his gloomy and dark mood. He's very knowledgeable due to the Vision.

Having envisioned people from different contexts and through contrasting backgrounds, Nate possesses exquisite social skills, being able to read people and situations almost to . He can't read minds but once he's visioned a person he retains their mindset and therefore their thinking process so he can basically infer on what they are thinking.
