Nathaniel is known for his tall height. He normally towers over many people and is very small in size. While he is tall, nathaniel doesn't really have any muscles. His defining features are his bright blonde locks and his blue eyes. As for his normal clothing style he doesn't really have one other than preferring to wear lighter colors over dark ones. Normally a smile will be warn on his face and goggles on the top of his head for whenever he flies with his pokemon.
Distinguishing Features: Nothing is really overly distinguishing about him other than the goggles that he wears. He will either leave them on the top of his head or around his neck. When flying they will obviously be put over his eyes for protection.
Nathaniel is a very meek person. He hates to fight for any reason and really doesn't even know how to. He is actually a really happy person on the outside. He makes friends quickly but isn't extremely close to them. He will protect people, but he doesn't know how to bond with anyone. He hasn't really known true friendship and doesn't tell anyone when he really isn't okay. He wants someone close to him but at the same time he is deeply afraid of what may happen.

Born into Fortree City the young boy had a natural love for anything up high. His mother had a flare for nature and was known for her beautiful sketches and paintings. From a young boy Nathaniel was taught to appreciate the world around him and not take things for granted.
While his mother was an artist his father was a full blown-battle driven maniac. It would seem as if the two just weren't right for each other but it couldn't of been more wrong. The two were passionate about each other and nathaniel's father cared as much for pokemon as his mother did for her artwork.
As a child Nathaniel learned from both his mother and his father. Nathan was taught how to draw from his mother and while he wasn't the best at first he continued practicing until he got better. Unlike his mother, Nathan preferred sketching pokemon with people. To him it was almost better when they were together.
Nathan's father wasn't to be left out of his past either. When he was old enough the man began teaching Nathan about the pokemon and how to train and catch them. Being in such a flying based city soon enough Nathan found a passion for flying. So there were many attempts for the young boy trying to 'fly".
Thankfully the boy only got off with a few broken bones every once in a while. Once he was old enough Nathan began his journey as a trainer. Unlike normal children though he started with a pidgey. Even with people constantly telling him a balanced team was better he couldn't give up his love for the flying type pokemon.
On his quest to the elite Nathan would find another type that would soon take his heart for a spin. Dragon type pokemon. These creatures soon caught Nathan by surprise and he quickly began to collect them as well. Though of course, flying was never out of his mind and he only trained dragons with a final form that could fly.
After several years of hard work he finally beat the region and the elite four. Soon enough however, he took the spot as fortree's gym leader and his family was proud to call him their son. Nathan stayed in hoenn for a few more years before his mother began to get sick.
Doctors told them she didn't have much time and Nathan spent more and more time away from the gym and with her. Nathan's mother finally passed away when he was 19 years old. It really devastated the boy and he couldn't bare to be near the place where everything reminded him of her.
In respect of his mother Nathaniel left his first pokemon, now a pidgeot, to protect their hometown and take care of his father. The rest of his pokemon were either left with his father or taken with him on his journey to other regions. Nathan roamed for several years obtaining and training new pokemon. Finally at the age of 24 Nathaniel heard of the new academy being formed.
Finally tired of being on his own all the time the blonde made his way here and soon applied as a teacher. Taking the position of Island Navigation, he has slowly started to reform connections with the human race. While he shows a rather well outside facade the fact is he is rather lonely underneath.
Nathaniel is now still at the academy having been here for over a year now and is rather well known as the academy's well known flying fanatic.

A bright day, ah yes these days were always perfect for flying. Though that was all the teacher ever thought about. That was what he was known for after all. There had been many that had dubbed him "the flying fanatic" or perhaps "the flying maniac". Nathan didn't mind all that much though since well, he was built for flying there was nothing that he loved more than flying and that was all there was to it.
He had a class today and that meant that he had to be prepared so that his poor students wouldn't get lost. Though of course he did things a little differently, he was still teaching. Most of his classes were held outside and especially on wonderful days like this.
In his perspective the best way to teach was to show the students exactly what they were learning. So, every once in a while a day would be set up where he would take these kids flying. Though, there were a few things that he had to get okay'd first such as which days and permission slips but those were nothing compared to the excitement of these days.
The students were always excited on the days they got to see the academy from the sky. Of course, the teacher used nothing but his own pokemon that were each trained to be capable of being ridden. He had trained them himself after all. Pulling a miniature red and white orb from his belt he pressed the white button in the middle.
The orb suddenly got bigger as it expanded to its full size. "Alright then. No need to celebrate alone. Flygon come on out." he said in a singsong voice. A flash of color signaled the pokemon's release followed by the cry of the dragon pokemon. Nathan absently held up his hand catching the pokeball that bounced back.
He replaced it on his belt as he gently stroked the pokemon's head. "I'm so excited for today flygon. My students finally get to fly after we have been talking about it for weeks. We have to get everything set up to make this as safe as possible though." he said with a smile.
A coo of happiness came from the flygon as she agreed with her trainer. "Well then, now that we are both on the same subject." he paused a gleam in his eye. "How about a quick lap around the island to map our flying today." he said with a grin.
A cry of glee came and that was all the answer he needed. Without any hesitation Nathan quickly swung onto the back of his flying and pulled down his goggles to fit perfectly over his eyes almost the same way for his own flygon's lenses.
"What do you say we make this one an obstacle course." he said with a grin. The flygon seemed to match his expression giving a nod before spreading her wings and taking off quickly into the air.
Well.. nothing less was to be expected from the academy's own flying maniac.
