Nathan Wuornos is the son of Chief Garland Wuornos and is following in his father's footsteps as a police officer with the Haven Police Department. In the first episode there seems to be a bit of a conflict between him and his father as he refuses to call him 'dad' but rather calls him 'the Chief'. No mentions have been made about his mother as of yet. The police dispatcher has been seen to call him sweetie.
He has shown he is very serious and collected with a dry sense of humor. He's also shown to have issues with the fact he is unlike everyone else due to a neurological condition which prohibits him from feeling anything physical. His character also has a huge rivalry with a criminal in town, Duke Crocker, which has them making jabs at each other. Though he has recently shown not to actually hate Duke as he lets on.
