Born to Swedish immigrants in Irvine, California – Nils had a strict, yet comfortable upbringing. His father, Valter, was constantly busy with his work as a businessman; his company specializing in electronics and other appliances. While his Mother, Elsa, worked a full time job as a bakery manager. All the while, Nils and his sister Nilsine were left with babysitters. Though, despite it all? The boy often found himself trailing behind his older sister; wanting to get into everything she was doing. Such would remain his way; despite the irritation that it might bring to his older sibling. Wherever she went? Nils was certain to follow. Though, admiration only held so much sway. If Nilsine was getting into any sort of trouble? He was likely to run to his parents later, telling them of everything he’d witnessed. Not necessarily meaning to get her into trouble; but simply lacking the ability to keep his mouth shut. If the child saw it? He had to talk about it. Which, would often end with his sister attempting to get him to ‘stop following her’. It was ridiculous to the child; he didn’t think he was doing any wrong. However, when he got older? He would understand her frustration; and would learn to keep his mouth shut.
School was another matter entirely. During his early years, Nils was somewhat shy – keeping to himself while in the presence of his classmates. Not one to try and bring attention to himself; and wanting nothing more than to be left alone. He didn’t have a lot of friends, and thus was the subject of bullying. Which, led to a great deal of nervousness and insecurities at a young age. All of which his caused a great deal of concern from his parents. It was something that would stick with him, throughout most of his young life. That is, until he reached his teenage years. Until then? He continued to be a loner; though an occasional friend or two would be found here and there. Nothing that would last; as children could often be influenced by their peers. Regardless, the child would eventually grow weary of the treatment. That would lead to him becoming more outspoken as the years progressed.
With teenage years came some changes; both physically and socially. Nils became more outspoken; tired of the treatment during his childhood years. No longer did he seem to care, or tolerate bullying. Instead, he became aggressive – getting into a fight or two during his youth. Some he won, others he lost – regardless, the boy felt he had something to prove. Both to himself and to those around him. Not only that, but as his sister reached adulthood and eventually moved out? Nils found his home life somewhat lonely and lacking. Turning his attention to other sources of comfort. Thus, there was a new approach to life. He soon gained a circle of his own friends. And, with new friends? He started getting interest in girls his age. Dating here and there, nothing would really last. That is, until one girl in particular came into the picture and changed everything. Little did he know, decisions made during his teenage years would impact the rest of his life.
Olivia was popular, more so than Nils. Despite the fact that several different boys at their school liked her? She took interest in him, and he didn’t hesitate to make a move on her. They dated for a while, and when the time came? They took the relationship to the next level. Thus, when Nils was sixteen years old? Olivia found herself pregnant. Panic set in; both teenagers not knowing what to do or how to tell their parents. Eventually, Olivia was the first to break the silence – and they, in turn, called his parents in a rage. The only thing that saved him from their wrath? His sister, who was visiting at the time. Nilsine was a voice of reason within the chaos; somehow managing to calm their parents down. Nothing would change the facts; nor suddenly make the unborn vanish. The situation had to be dealt with; regardless of their own disappointment. However, that didn’t get Nils off the hook. Instead, his parents made him take up a part-time job as a bagger at a local grocery store. Which, the teenager hated – but went along with it; wishing not to incur more wrath from everyone around him. Regardless, stress of the situation caused Olivia and Nils to break things off. Though, they would always remain on good terms with one another.
The child was born shortly after Nils turned seventeen. A little girl, who would be named Lilly Celeste. His sister helped to pick out the name, alongside his child’s mother. Where Nils couldn’t afford the child? His parents got involved; greatly supplementing the income needed to provide for the child. In time, Nils would graduate from high school. And, with his current responsibilities? Immediately set forth towards the working world. Starting off finding employment at various customer service jobs. From video game stores, to porn shops, and finally – bartending. Nothing seemed good for long term employment. He would also continue to date, though not often and nothing serious came from it. Thus, for a period of time, Nils had a string of short-lived flings and one night stands. However, it would only take one pregnancy scare for him to try to straighten up his ways.
The years after graduating, Nils lived with several different roommates. One of which being his own sister, who would be the individual that he resided with the longest. It was during this period that a twenty-two year old Nils met a woman by the name of Ophelia. The place where they met was less than ideal, and despite his attempts to keep that knowledge from his parents? They found out and thus disapproved of the relationship. After all, even though he didn’t have a great job? They thought he could do better than a stripper. Regardless, they went on several dates and eventually Ophelia found out she was pregnant. Neither of them were prepared, though they made the best of the situation. Thus, a lot of time was spent getting to know one another during that time. And, eventually the two moved in together and got married – despite their parents disapproval. Several months later, Ophelia gave birth to a son named Isak. Despite the odds stacked against them, the newlywed couple remained dedicated. Even when others vocalized their distaste for them ‘rushing into things’.
As of now, the couple resides in a three bedroom apartment in Irvine, California. Nils wanting to remain within the area that he grew up in. There, they continue to build a life together despite the ups and downs; all while Nils attempts to find a better career path.
