      Born the son of a Baptist preacher and a schoolteacher in the bustling railroad town in Chattanooga, Tennessee1. Nate was exposed to the finer things in life at an early age. Things like music, travel2, history, and culture. With very few children his age in his neighborhood, he made friends with a wealth of adults who kept him on the straight and narrow, respect for others, and lending a hand whenever possible. All of which believed in the saying, “It takes a village to raise a child”. At school he wasn’t the “best” student but he tried. He just seemed distracted. While at school one day Nate got into a fight and was beaten very badly. He quickly became another person, always wanting to do things with others, not wanting to be left alone, behavior that was not like this once happy child. Nate’s parents decided that let him learn some self-defense from a man called Tere’ Hana. Hana taught him the ways of Capoeira. This was the medicine Nate needed; he excelled to the
      rank of mestre (teacher) 3. Capoeira gave him the discipline to focus and the camaraderie he needed.

      With his newfound confidence, the next logical step for him was college. He started out decently at the University of Tennessee4, but his parents were taken ill, and once again he lost his focus, he was definitely not prepared for this. After getting kicked out he took a job as a clerk for District Attorney J. Wesley Millburn5. Millburn, Like Nate came from similar backgrounds. Showed him that anyone can make it. He made fast friends with another clerk Clifford Franklin6, who showed him how to shoot pistols. He made it through college and law school with honors7.

      After Law school he became a lawyer practicing near the now Judge Millburn8 in Louisiana, upon meeting his old friend and mentor again, Nate was introduced to the future in the form of Lisa Ashby, an engineer from Alabama9, who had mad quite a bit of money designing machinery for textile factories in the Yellowhammer state, after courting her for four years, they finally married and are living happily.

      I see my guy as an npc that you can use if your posse gets into legal trouble, getting things through connections; also he is an experiment in trying to make an alternative Martial Artist.

      If the railroad had not move to Atlanta, Chattanooga would have been as big as Atlanta today.
      As a boy I travel with a singing group that toured the continental United States.
      I do hold a Black belt in Tae Kwon Do.
      Kicked out of college several times.
      One of my best friends was an assistant District Attorney now a Judge.
      Another best friend is a grade school teacher a gun nut.
      Did graduate from college making the Dean’s List twice.
      See 5 above.
      My wife graduated from Alabama, and worked in carpet mills.
