Nick was born in Caslin, Nebraska in 1980. His father, a farmer,
died of a
heart attack before his birth and his mother lost the farm shortly after in
1985. Four years later his mother was killed in an accident. Nick ended up in
an orphanage, Children of Jesus Christ orphanage, in Des Moines. He was made
fun of there by the other children, and wanted to stop communicating with
others completely until he met a man by the name of Rudy Sparkman, who was
also deaf and mute and for the next six years taught Nick to read and write.
In 1994 the orphanage went broke. From the on, Nick had to make it on his own. During his travels in Arkansas, Nick was jumped by four local men who were later imprisoned for another crime. During his stay at the jail house, Nick became close with Sheriff Baker, the brother in law of the leader of the group who jumped him, Ray Booths, and the local Doctor, who was the only other townsperson to appear not ill. In a note to the sheriff, Nick told him that he wanted to take the high school equivalency test sometime, even go to college someday.
One by one the towns people died, including the Sheriff and his wife who left Nick in charge of the jail house. Accepting the doctor invitation to travel with him to a cabin till the illness blew over, he mercifully allowed his abusers to go free. However, the doctor as well soon became ill and simply disappeared. Nick remained at the jail house only to find trouble - Ray, his attacker from the jail house, came back in search of revenge and in the struggle, Nick shot Ray, who was already ill with the flu. He stayed at the jail house, recovering from the fight for three days. From there, unable of driving, Nick took a bike and road off in search of other survivors.
He came across Tom Cullen on July 5th. The pair travel on towards Nebraska together, survive a tornado, and on the 9th meet Sadie Colston. From there, the party grew in size until they arrived in Hemingford Home, Nebraska on July 16th. On the 17th, another group arrives, led by the immortal Methos.
On the 22nd of July, Nick arrived in Boulder with many others, including Mother Abigail, to find a small party already there. The number of survivors arriving has continued to grow day by day.
