I definitely think there’s more to Nate than meets the eye. So let’s get the facts: he drinks less blood than the others, it’s hard for him to control himself even when he smells it or sees a bloodbag, he doesn’t like to bring up his past and is always very tense about it, he has two tiers and he’s never killed anyone by his own hand but in the vision we can clearly see that he’s just watching, expresionless, while two people tear each other apart in a bloody mess. So I have two theories and they’re not mutually exclusive. 1) he drinks less than the others because blood makes him loose control and he goes berserk; 2) he’s some sort of a telepath and he can influence other people’s actions/make them act like his puppets. So maybe… he drinks less than the others because the more blood he ingests, the harder it gets to supress his psychic abilities?
Ahhh can you imagine that angst when he finally goes over the edge and it’s up to MC to either save him or let him lose himself?? Okay so she’s probably not going to lose him because it’s not that kind of a novel, but I can just feel Nate’s immense guilt when he finally comes back from the edge. What if it makes him or finally breaks him? And what if our MC is the only one who can help him find himself I LIVE FOR THAT ANGST PLEASE GIVE IT TO ME.
