Nick Gant is a Second Generation Mover who partook in a large scale hunt with Division, a secret organization bent on capturing and exploiting their powers, over a brief case containing a serum that increases the ability of any psychic of any type.
As a child, Nick's father, a powerful mover, was vigorously being hunted by Division men. When Nick was young, he and his father ran from Division men hot on their trail. Inside a building, Nick's father pulled them into a room, where he told his son that a watcher told him that if Nick ever met a girl with a flower, to do what she said. As Nick tried to comment, his father told to not question it. As Division banged on the door, he said his goodbyes to Nick, and as they entered the room, he moved his son into the vents. Nick hid in there, and saw as Division killed his father. He then ran off.
Nick eventually learned of the way the world is like for a psychic, learning of Divisions ways, psychic names and terms, and how to keep his powers secret.
