Nick lived in Pike Creek, Delaware, and was married to a woman named [[Sarah]]. Together, they had a son named Teddy. One night, Sarah and the baby were murdered by the demon [[Abraxas]] as they slept while Nick was out, drinking at the Elk's Lodge.<ref name="fourteen07">[[14.07 Unhuman Nature]]</ref> After their deaths the grief-stricken Nick still resided in the house, and kept some objects that were connected to Sarah and his son.<ref name="five01">[[5.01 Sympathy for the Devil]]</ref>
[[Lucifer]] chooses to use Nick as a so-called "Plan B" [[vessel]] when [[Sam]] refused to consent to him.<ref name="five01" /><ref name="five03">[[5.03 Free to Be You and Me]]</ref> However, because he isn't the "true" vessel, over time Nick’s body slowly becomes more and more degraded. The longer he continued to be occupied by Lucifer the more his body burned out, due to
the inability of Nick to handle Lucifer's essence. [[Castiel]] tells Sam that Nick would be drinking gallons of [[demon blood]] in order to be able to host Lucifer.<ref name="five21">[[5.21 Two Minutes to Midnight]]</ref> Nick is dispossessed when Lucifer gains consent from Sam, his body left behind in a apartment in Detroit.<ref name="five22">[[5.22 Swan Song]]</ref>
Despite no longer using Nick as a vessel, Nick appears to be Lucifer's favored form to manifest visually in.<ref name="eleven09">[[11.09 O Brother, Where Art Thou?]]</ref><ref name="eleven10">[[11.10 The Devil in the Details]]</ref><ref name="eleven18">[[11.18 Hell's Angel]]</ref> Additionally, when Lucifer was expelled from Castiel by [[the Darkness]], an image of Nick briefly overlaid Castiel.<ref name="eleven22">[[11.22 We Happy Few]]</ref> Several years after Lucifer first possessed Nick, his body was found by [[Crowley]]'s demons, where it was repaired and improved so that Nick's body could be a suitable permanent vessel for Lucifer.<ref name="twelve13">[[12.13 Family Feud]]</ref><ref name="fourteen01">[[14.01 Stranger in a Strange Land]]</ref> Following Lucifer's defeat,<ref name="twelve08">[[12.08 LOTUS]]</ref> he was returned to Nick's unconscious body when Crowley altered [[Rowena]]'s spell, causing Nick to once more become Lucifer's vessel.<ref name="twelve13" /> Nick remained Lucifer's permanent vessel for the next year and a half until Dean killed Lucifer with an [[archangel blade]] while powered and possessed by the [[Apocalypse World]] version of [[Michael (Apocalypse World)|Michael]].<ref name="thirteen23">[[13.23 Let the Good Times Roll]]</ref>
As Nick sits in his bed praying to Lucifer, he is interrupted by the officer. Nick asks to be uncuffed to use the bathroom, asking for some dignity, which the officer reluctantly agrees to. Once uncuffed, Nick takes a bed pan and knocks the officer to the floor and proceeds to repeatedly stomp and kick his head until he is a bloody mess. Nick picks up the keys to his cuffs and unlocks them, grabs his bag of clothes, and limps out of the room.
After breaking in to his home in Pike Creek. Nick starts to feel a chill, and sees a mirror in the room frost over. Doors start to bang loudly and rapidly behind him. As the light starts to flicker, his wife [[Sarah]] appears before him. At first he believes this to be Lucifer before Sarah tells him she is his wife. Confused as to why she is a ghost, Sarah tells him she has unfinished business. Nick tearfully tells her he got revenge for her and Teddy's deaths and she can move on. She tells him how she was there the night he chose to be with Lucifer, and her unfinished business involves Nick needing to reject Lucifer. When Nick can't bring himself to do so, Sarah tells him he has doomed her to be stuck in their home forever and has doomed himself. As Nick is about to leave, Sarah asks where he is going. With tears in his eyes, he tells his wife "Wherever it’s darkest. Wherever he is" as he
exits their home.
