Personal History:

Nathaniel was born on August 1, 1913, in rural Alabama. His schooling took place in a small, blacks-only schoolhouse. After graduating, he took up a job at a gas-station and auto-repair shop, rather than try to attend college. He worked this job up until the beginning of America's involvement in WWII. After enlisting in the army, he underwent training and went on to serve as a gunner on the European front. He was later transfered to a covert operations unit.

After the War, Nate returned to his hometown and took up a job as a janitor at a local high school. This job lasted until the middle of autumn 1956. At this time, the school was attacked after-hours by a large, gelatinous, anomalous entity, which was subdued by Nate. In the following report and cleanup, Nate was offered a new, better-paying position at Site-19 as an undercover operative, in light of his military experience ability to keep a low-profile, and contact with the anomalous. He accepted, in addition to taking up a janitorial position to better keep his undercover status from being leaked.

He worked these jobs for several months, going largely unnoticed by agents and researchers alike. He was later transferred along with the rest of Psi-7 to Site 77 in early March, 1957, where he continued his duties.
