A loyal student of The Word, Nat Parson preached doom and destruction to his flock - the people of Malbry. After a trip to World's End he discovered a taste for power and control which led him to seek out a way to bring the Order of World's End to the sleepy village in which he resides.

He forged an alliance with Skadi to get the word and to try to exterminate Chaos. However, in using the Word he accidentally killed Ethel Parson, his wife. She was revived by a bite of Idun's apple. Nat then travelled into World Below to find Odin. At the end, he tried to get Mimir (The Whisperer) to inhabit his body, but Mimir ended up in Adam Scattergood instead. Nat Parson died.
