Nigel Stephanos is a charismatic individual, with an easy smile, an easy laugh, and a quick, fiery temper. He and his sister, Lily, are recent transfers to the Genesis: he from the Pacifica, from which he was cast after being demoted to crewman for breaking a fellow specialist's jaw, and she from the Pandora after the crash. He's been lying low since his transfer, treading on eggshells, as it were, trying not to cause too much of a ruckus.

Nigel Stephanos was born eleven minutes before his twin sister, Lily on Tauron, to low-middle class parents. From an early age, he showed an interest in art, but little else interested him when it came to academics. He graduated high school with low marks, and thus was not accepted into university. Not wanting to live with his parents, however, he followed Lily to the city where she enrolled in Tauron Technical University, got an apartment by himself, and signed up for classes at a junior college.

Still, academia held no interest for Nigel. He partied his days and nights away, lying to both Lily and his parents about attending classes. He flunked his first two semesters, then was kicked out of community college, but he continued to lead a double life, deceiving the person who mattered most to him in the world: his sister.

Fast forward a few years: Nigel cleaned himself up after a stint in rehab, moving in with Lily so she could keep tabs on him. When she graduated with her computer science degree and announced that she was joining the Navy as an engineer, Nigel simply replied, "Then so am I." They were stationed on different battlestars - she to the Pandora, he to the Pacifica - which was something that Nigel hadn't taken into consideration as a possibility - but he had signed the contract and he was determined to follow through for once in his life.

Without Lily around to babysit him, however, Nigel slipped back into his old habits after a while. After a drunken brawl which resulted in his breaking a fellow specialist's jaw, he was demoted to crewman and transferred to the Genesis to be someone else's problem. He's been lying low for a month or so, staying out of trouble and keeping a cool head.

He has since reunited with his sister, who was reassigned to the Genesis after surviving the Pandora crash.
