Born in 2156, Nathaniel Heartly has been a criminal all his life. Orphaned at an early age, Nathaniel suffered the same fate as many of the young of Omega- he fell in with a gang. He was a particularly adept pickpocket. As he grew older, and more bold, he often used playing cards bearing the suit of Spades as a calling card, thus earning him his nickname. Eventually, he moved on to freelance mercenary work, before joining up with the Blue Suns. He was a member of the Blue Suns for several years, until 'violent differences of opinion' resulted in him leaving their employ. He is currently working as a freelance mercenary.
Nathaniel has a bit of a 'reputation'. He's known as a honest, skilled, resourceful man, and as a survivor. As a Blue Sun, he made a name for himself surviving in situations where most professional soldiers would give up. However, it's that 'honest' part that comes back to bite him in the ass. Even as a teenager, Nathaniel was often at odds with his compatriots- he often had trouble 'swallowing his morality', so to speak. While seemingly amoral at times, he is, at his core, a 'good person'.
He's got black, unkempt hair and light stubble, with dullish blue eyes. When he's not geared up, his typical attire is usually just a jacket and and slacks, tucked into a pair of combat boots. When he's 'geared up', he's typically wearing set of grey-black Ajax armor, with a big, white 'spade' symbol painted on the chest.
