Nathan Edwards (Blackwell) | Witch | 17 | | (Andrew Garfield) | Open
Unlike his siblings, Nathan grew up completely normal. With a single mother, he learned to take care of himself at a fairly early age. He never once felt the need to blame his mother, and instead found himself resenting the absent father that he had never even met. When he was fifteen, his mother explained to him about magic — and that he was a witch. Nathan was shocked at first, never having believed the stories she told him when he was a child. Somehow he learned how to balance school, a social life, and practicing magic with little effort at all. Magic came extremely easy for him, and he had no idea why.
He was shocked to say the least to find John Blackwell at their door one day, claiming he was his father. As much as Nathan had come to dislike John Blackwell, he would be lying if he said he wasn’t intrigued or curious. After John had finally left again, with the encouragement of his mother, Nathan had decided to go to Mystic Falls. There he reconnected with his old flame Carley Anderson and fell in love. But one by one his siblings fell to the temptations, including witch hunters and vampires. The final straw was Carley being hurt. Nathan made a deal with Katherine to save the young woman’s life, but still fearing for her safety he went one step further and had her compelled to leave. With nothing left, Nathan left Mystic Falls behind until Katherine summoned him back to make good on the debt he owes her.
