Nathaniel Lemes was a petty thief up until a few years ago, when he and Samwell Gordan, his lifelong friend decided that they were fed up with the amount of money they were receiving. Nathaniel and Samwell set out in the Chestin district where they both grew up to find people who were willing to risk their lives for the thrill of being a thief. on August 4th, 197 a.c., he received a letter with specific directions to assassinate an I.C.B. officer who would be on patrol later that day. Nathaniel, Samwell, and three other men headed to the bar he would stop at every Wednesday night after patrol. Surrounded, the officer pulled out a M15EFF, but before he could get a shot off, his neck was snapped from behind by one of the three men he brought along with him. Ever since that mission, they have been a close group of assassins that trusted no one but each other. Nathaniel and Samwell decided on March 29th, 201 a.c., that their group would be formally known as the Wayward Chaps.
Nathaniel was born into poverty, with three older brothers and two older sisters. They were raised by a single mother. To provide for their family, Nathaniel would pickpocket anyone taller than him. On April 19th, 181 a.c., he met another pickpocket named Samwell Gordan, and they began their career together as major providers within their respective families. By the time Nathaniel was seventeen, both his sisters and two of his brothers had been executed for being caught stealing gems from the Chestin vault. Three days after, his mother died of a severe sickness, traumatizing Nathaniel for the rest of his life.
