Nate after Connor bit off his ear

Nate first appeared in The Five, when Klaus called to him while they were in the room in Klaus' mansion where he was holding Connor, who was chained up to a large wooden board. Jeremy had been ordered to sketch Connor's Hunter's Mark, and he was the only person other than Connor who could see it. Klaus instructed Nate to order another female hybrid to take Jeremy home and compel him to forget being there, and left Nate to guard Connor; Klaus took special care to demanding that Nate keep Connor alive at all costs, and as the majority of the hybrids were sire-bound to Klaus, Nate obeyed. Klaus and Nate left the room, and Connor began to try to escape by breaking the bolt holding the chains to the back of the wooden board, but Nate heard him. Nate re-entered the room to get rid of the extra slack in the chains and tighten Connor's restraints, and Connor leaned back to bite his ear, and ripped out the barbell in Nate's industrial piercing. Nate punched Connor in the face and stated that he should feel lucky that he isn't allowed to kill him, and left the room again. Connor spit the barbell out a little and bit onto the end, and attempted to pass the barbell from his mouth to his still-chained hands.

Nate being killed by Connor

Later, Nate was seen on the phone with Klaus as he walks into Connor's room, and tells them both that he is going to feed Connor food and water. He hung up  the phone and put the food on the table, when suddenly Connor comes up from behind him and wraps the chain attached to his shackles around his neck. He pulls hard on the shackles as Nate tries to pull himself free. Connor groans loudly as he pulls the chains deeper into Nate's neck as hard as he can. He thrusts the chains backwards sharply a few times and Nate's head comes off, killing him. Connor picks his head off the floor and holds it up.

In The Killer, Connor carried Nate's head as he entered the camper in the woods, and put it on the table. Then, he took a syringe and extracted werewolf venom from Nate's gums to use as a weapon against the vampires. His body was later found decapitated by Stefan.


Nate was a bit hot-headed and very outspoken, but he followed Klaus' orders without hesitation.
