Background Story Edit
Son of Klaus and Jessica Bruckheimer; Papa Seawolf and human form of an English man'o'war with German quality. Like most of the boys in the neighborhood, Nigel always wanted to be a soldier. By 2024 he is a former Royal Marines Colonel (Special Boat Service, M Squadron), employed by the NBCU. Once he was serving at a Ukrainian ship, and one of the sailors was constantly calling him 'Batya'. Later Nigel has learned that it means 'Daddy' in Russian and adopted this as his nickname. Some time later he thought he'll drown and die in a nuclear submarine, but by pure miracle Nigel and his crew were able to prevent the detonation of damaged warheads and their burial under the hull falling apart. Turned out all of that happened because of an uncharted WWII-era minefield. This episode convinced Nigel to start speaking against conventional warfare and pro stopping all wars in the world, so people like him would finally have their rest, and all the young men would stop dying on the killing fields. Also, constantly preaches the idea of friendship between nations, considering politics a pile of bloody lies. Was married at some point, but later divorced. His wife loved the sea, but their relationships give both only headache, without much satisfaction at all. Nigel himself is not a demanding person. Hearing 'Sir, mission accomplished, sir!' is just fine enough for him to be happy about what he's doing. He also won't resist taking a cigar on a pleasant evening - and when he's nervous, he pretty much can smoke anything that has a filter. He doesn't mind alcohol when not on duty, but still prefers the Lipton green tea as a trait of patriotism.
Boredom, failing at his commander skills, being nowhere near to help the inexperienced subordinates facing a terminal threat. Also, holds a disappointed grudge at Sean for choosing all the wrong ways to cope with his (Sean's) widowhood.
His last name and his mother's full name are references to Jerry Bruckheimer.
