Nick was born to a middle-class family in Atlanta, the capital of Georgia. His childhood was wrought with physical abuse and neglect, preferring to be in the company of his friends than anywhere near his parents. His time with his friends gave Nick a very wise upbringing, relying on his gut more than others. Nick went through various odd jobs, his last being a successful drug distributor in the heart of Atlanta with his wife, Casey. Years of drug dealing took a toll on Nick Lockwood, leaving him paranoid and anxiety-ridden. Casey had also felt this strain after years of helping Nick with the financial and logistical side of the drug trade. Casey and Nick soon agreed it was time for a change. After searching and searching, they came upon a country by the name of Chernaus. Recently the country had seen relative prosperity and was full of beautiful landscape scenery. They agreed on it and made plans to move. After saving enough funds through his job, he cut all ties to the drug trade, setting his sights on the prosperous country.
