Portrayed By: Jackson Rathbone
Appearances: Aim High 2011

A sixteen year student of Fairview High and an government operative of the Department of Education Pilot Program.


  • Anti-Hero: Nick has no qualms in killing his targets at the beginning of the series, as he was trained to.
  • Assassin Outclassin'': Defeated Dakota when she came to kill him. He reminds her of this in Season 2.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Nick is a charming young man who is also trained assassin.
  • Catchphrase: “Killing is easy. High school is easy” is repeated a lot.
  • Chick Magnet: Nick was able to attract the attention of Amanda, Dakota, a bunch of sorority girls, the cheer-leading squad, and after its discovered that he had abs, the rest of the female population at Fairview High.
  • The Charmer: Nick can be this at times. He even somehow got the cheer-leading squad to go and cuddle up with the chess club.
  • Child Solider: Was recruited by DEPP after winning a fitness competition back in the 7th grade.
  • Cute but Troubled: Implied. He was told that he was recruited by DEPP because his psychological profile showed that he has issues with aggression.
  • Consummate Liar: Comes up with plausible explanations on the fly. Justified since he is secret agent.
  • Establishing Character Moment: His first scene is him tricking and then taking out a whole bunch of bad guys, showing that he is a resourceful badass.
  • Combat Pragmatist: If Nick is about to be outmatched in a fight (and thus be killed), he will find whatever he can get his hands on to win. He seems to prefer a pen to the ear or neck.
  • Good Is Not Nice/Good Is Not Soft: If you are a unrepentant bad guy who is going to do very bad things and has threatened innocent lives, Nick will not hesitate to end you.
  • Guile Hero: Nick uses his wit and whatever resources he has to win a fight.
  • Hyper-Awareness: Is able to look at his surroundings to find the most effective weapon.
  • Jack Bauer Interrogation Technique: Implied. [[with Dakota and himself in the Yakuza assignment.]]
  • Living Lie Detector: Nick was trained to see if a person is lying or not. He did this with Marcus.
  • Made of Iron: Takes on multiple beatings and still manages to walk away.
    • Dented Iron: Its takes time to heal though, as he comes to school with bruises and bloody lips; also shown in the beginning of the injuries he had gotten over the years.
  • Nice Guy: Can be polite and considerate, and is able to befriend people.
  • Not So Different: Invoked when fighting with Boris, with the older man telling him that the government would never let him leave the life.
  • Omniglot: Speaks multiple languages, but unfortunately it doesn’t help him in Spanish class.
  • One-Man Army: Can take on multiple opponents, as seen in the first episode.
  • Thou Shalt Not Kill: In Season 2, he takes assignments that don’t involve killing people. Subverted in that he was able to make this arrangement with DEPP by partnering with Dakota, and she does the killing.
  • Would Hit a Girl: Considering that said girls are assassins sent to kill him...
