Nate Archibald is a wealthy, good-looking lacrosse player at St. Jude's school.
His mother is a French socialite and his father is a former Navy captain. Nate smokes copious amounts of marijuana and was once caught and sent to rehab for buying a dimebag in the park. Tough luck on that one.
Archibald has dated a number of girls including Jenny Humphrey, Serena, Georgina Spark, and Lexie - but his only serious relationship has been with his on again/off again girlfriend Blair.
Although Nate was originally planning to attend Yale University and play lacrosse, he eventually left to sail across the world with his father's Navy mentor, Captain Chips White, to figure his life out.
Diana: Nate. Can I add one more thing to your to do list?
Nate: The best way to get anywhere right now, is through the park.
Raina: You mean walk?
Nate: I'll escort you. That way you won't wander off into Sheep's Meadow. Come on, trust me. It'll be fast and it's fun.
Raina: Okay then. Escort away. There aren't really sheep there, right?
Nate: No. Just a lot of grass.
