Character Information



Character Name: Nathan Young
Character Series: Misfits
Character Age: 20 (roughly)
Character Gender: Male
Original Canon
Canon Point: Series 2, Episode 6, before Nathan's subjected to permanent brain damage and before Curtis rewinds time and saves them all. He'd just killed himself on live television ("Oops, there go my brains!") and regenerated, only to run into Kelly--or, more accurately, Kelly's ghost. She informed him that Brian, the lactokinetic, had killed her in a rage of superpower-related envy, and that he was holding Alisha hostage. He arrives in this world of debauchery before he has a chance to attempt to avenge her.
Background Link: enjoy
Personality: Nathan's been called many things and all of these things summarize his personality with neat, tight efficiency. These include, but are not limited to: prick, annoying cunt, dickhead, wanker, pervert, and ASBO shithead. Nathan prefers to think of himself as beautiful, clever, and gracefully tall...but this is partially due to the fact that he's a full-blown deluded narcissist. When Nathan comments on how superior he is to those around him, he's hardly joking. Sometimes Nathan can almost seem oddly charming in his egotistical snark due to the playful nature in which he makes such statements. Most of the time he isn't playing at all. Most of the time he's honestly just a dick. When he's not just being a dick, he likely still sounds like he's being a dick because he really doesn't know how else to express himself. Those two attitudes generally blend together.

Clearly since Nathan's the best, most handsome individual in all of England if not all of the world, there's no real need to sugarcoat anything. Honestly, he means his best (generally) and doesn't (generally) set out with the specific intent to bully others. But, well, he does. For all of the first series and the beginning of the second, Nathan speaks to Simon in a way that can't even remotely be mistaken for friendly. He belittles and torments his fellow community service worker to the point where Simon eventually snaps at him, angry that he was being treated the way he was when he "only wanted to be friends". Nathan, startled, admits that he couldn't even remember calling Simon half the names he had, and replies with an amicable "Yeah, sure, man." The better he likes a person, the easier it is to tell when he's not trying to be hurtful and only trying to be funny, but that hardly makes him less insensitive. At the end of the first series, when Kelly's been brainwashed into being an upstanding citizen, he admits for her his sincere feelings toward, yet that doesn't stop him from throwing in comments that could also be taken as an insult.

Similarly, given the opportunity, Nathan will always make a wise crack. Preferably at the expense of someone other than himself. He can almost always find an opportunity. And, partially because his brain doesn't seem to be totally functioning, he often does this regardless of the consequences. He never would have gotten community service if he had stopped to think "maybe I shouldn't call this security guard a chick with a dick". Granted, achieving (or rather becoming aware of) his power of immortality only served to make Nathan less cautious, knowing he has little to fear from consequences. At one point he even taunts a gang, risking getting beaten or even murdered in order to steal back his brother's car. At the same time, despite proving that he's a reckless youth and far too witty for his own good, the stunt also proves how much his family means to him. He hides his affection beneath layers of egotism and nonchalance, but despite never having known his younger brother and despite knowing that the boy's existence was proof of his father's infidelity, he embraced Jaime with open arms. He protected him and mourned his later death. Nathan drives away his mother's boyfriends, but does so out of concern for her, wanting her to live the best life that she can--with someone she deserves and who makes her happy. When he realizes that she truly is in love with the man she's currently living with, he backs off. Even his father, who he can hardly stand to look at, wouldn't have such an effect on him if the man didn't heavily affect the way he lives his life.

Nathan's situation with his parents is delicate at best, complicated as a rule, and a source of constant antagonism at worst. As a child, he experienced a growing disconnect with his father that exploded into full blown war when his parents separated. Nathan juggled the acts of berating his father at every attempt the man made to stay involved in his life (Nathan insists over breakfast with his father that he left him stranded at an IKEA on his eighth birthday, only for him to be picked up by a shady character who bought him Swedish meatballs--a story which his father denies memory of) with chasing off any and every suitor that came to court his mother. Once, he even claimed that one of them had displayed pedophilic tendencies (when confronted about the lie in comparison to accusations against her current boyfriend, Nathan quickly tells his mother "this is different: this time it's true."). When caught by security for petty theft and damage done at a bowling rink, faced with being arrested or calling his father to pay the charges, Nathan chose to be arrested. A great portion of his snark and attitude can be attributed to lasting effects from perceived wrongs and neglect from his father. With a father who abandoned him and a mother who kicked him out and left him homeless, the last line of defense Nathan has is overconfidence. If nobody believes he's bothered by the trouble he has on the home front, it can't be used against him. In that regard, it simply ceases to be a problem.
Abilities: With the lightning storm that struck him as well as his fellow young offenders, Nathan was granted superhuman powers, though he took much, much longer to discover what his were. Nathan was granted immortality--though, he had to die to realize it. His immortality doesn't make him impossible to kill, only prevents him from staying dead for very long. After his initial death, he seems to be dead for quite a long time, as he doesn't regenerate fully until after his funeral is over and he's been buried at the local cemetery. Each time Nathan dies afterward, however (and he has an unfortunate habit of dying quite often), it appears to take him far less time to come back to life. Considering the time that passes when Nathan shoots himself in the head as part of a publicity stunt, it couldn't have been more than a couple of hours he had been dead for. Earlier in the series, when a shapeshifter kills him, he's back on his feet again before the day's over. In another instant, he's murdered in the late evening and back on his feet again by the time it's morning. Nathan's immortality doesn't prevent him from contracting diseases (as Nathan gets an STD earlier in Series 2, Episode 6 before forcing another super to heal it for him), and doesn't expedite the healing of minor injuries.

Along with immortality, Nathan was also granted the power of mediumship--perhaps due to his connection to death and dying. He's able to see and communicate with spirits of the newly dead, generally who have some measure of unfinished business left and who have died violently. These spirits appear as they were before their death, without any apparent bodily injuries. As such, Nathan's unable to tell the difference between a living being and a spirit unless he knows for a fact that they're dead. Two out of the three times he's shown to use this power he mistakes the ghost for someone still living. Kelly has to blatantly tell him that she'd been killed, and his half-brother Jaime pretended to be alive in order to convince Nathan to reconcile with their father. It can be deduced that this power is completely unconscious, as they seem to approach him rather than Nathan summoning them as it suits him.
Sample Entry: There was a lot to be said about being immortal. And also a celebrity. Life was one big crazed orgy and Nathan was living it up. It was good not to be a homeless any longer, beating the everloving shit out of the community center's vending machine in hopes it would drop him an extra bag of crisps. Granted, that too had its perks. Namely, when he nestled himself up in his sleeping bag and worked his hand down into his trousers, he found the acoustics were fantastic. Beyond compare, really. But nothing could beat the way that girls would line up outside his swanky new digs and do, well, basically anything he wanted. And all it took, sometimes, was a daring display of immortality. This evening Nathan had two lovely birds keeping his bed warm for him. Raving drunk, of course, as they should be, and slurring their words so hard he could hardly understand them.

Not that he needed them to be speaking, mind you.

"Alright, ladies," he croons as he sways his way out of the ornate bathroom, juggling bottles in one hand as he slams the door shut behind him and waggles his eyebrows. "Ask and ye shall receive."

They look at each other and giggle encouragingly. "You're so sexy, Captain Invincible," says one.

"Do it, go on," says the other, wiggling in a provocative fashion from her place on the bed. "I want to see you come back."

Nathan's grin widens from ear to ear as he makes his way in front of them and reads the warning label on one of the smaller bottles he carries. "Absolutely, under no circumstances, should I be taking these while consuming alcohol." He looks at the other bottle in his hand: a half-emptied beer, and giggles. He could wager the rest of the various medications he had retrieved from the well-stocked cabinet in the bathroom had similar sort of messages. Nathan pops the cap and gives a wink. "Bottoms up."

The girls go from excited to concerned to bored quite quickly after Nathan downs bottle after bottle of little multi-colored pills with the help of his drink. He, too, frowns when they voice their complaints. "Give me a break, would'ya? I may be a shithead but I don't hate myself. I've never tried this before! It's hardly my fault if it takes a bit of time!" He looks down at the empty bottles strewn over the ground, shakes his head as a funny sort of numbness begins to set in. "Just a minute, loves. I think it's starting to..."

His legs give out and he crashes down. There's a sound of crunching as the beer bottle splinters beneath his weight, but Nathan doesn't feel the glass shards as they pierce his side. He's too unfeeling, his eyes staring, wide and blank, up at the ceiling as his body convulses and mouth begins to foam. All he can do is watch helplessly as the girls get up and look down at him with a tipsy mixture of curiosity and disgust.

"Not very attractive, is it, then?"

One prods him with her foot. Nathan tries to move his arms, but they only flop awkwardly against his sides. He can feel himself suffocating slowly on his own bile, his stomach burning and clawing in protest to the chemicals he's unleashed upon it.

"Oi, can't you die faster? This isn't really a turn on, after all."

As Nathan's vision begins to fade, he tries to find his voice. He tries to tell them not to leave; he's almost dead now so he should be back on his feet quite soon, energetic and ready to shag as ever. It hurts too much to do anything but writhe involutnarily, until, all at once, he's gone. When Nathan wakes up, he has a killer headache and the girls are gone. So are his wallet and his clothes, he discovers soon thereafter. Empty bottles and various bodily fluids are strewn all around him, and the word "WANKER" is written across the closet mirror in red lipstick. Nathan groans, running a hand through his hair. He had to have been dead for several hours.

"Admittedly not one of my better ideas," he says to the empty room before heading for the shower. It would make a good story, at least, and he hadn't ended up in a coffin this time. Nothing could be too embarrassing, in the end. Not when you were immortal. Nathan was on the fucking A List, and nothing was going to take that fact away from him.

But if there's anything you don't want him to say that would make you uncomfortable, please do let me know.

It can be deduced that this power is completely unconscious, as they seem to approach him rather than Nathan summoning them as it suits him.

Where his weaknesses are concerned, being ungodly annoying, while a talent in and of itself, can definitely be considered Nathan's most notable one. Mostly because his penchant for being a total headache, along with the fact that he is amazingly self-absorbed, keeps getting him into trouble if not murdered completely. Granted, he keeps coming back after getting murdered due to his power of immortality, but that doesn't make it something to brag about. Particularly not in the Mistress' castle, where he'd be finding himself suddenly without such a failsafe. He's also admitted himself that he's physically scrawny and therefore the last person you want to count on where physical brawling is concerned. In the series, he'll much sooner run screaming than face the idea of pain. It's his friends who get him out of trouble--he practically calls on Kelly like she's his attack dog, at times. Needless to say, given his track record, he'll be more than a bit worried when he realizes that he's no longer immortal. It'll mean he has to actually watch his mouth--and Nathan's proven time and time again how little he understands the meaning of the word tact.
