Nack the Weasel is both a dangerous and clumsy bounty hunter. Though willing to do whatever it takes to get a job done, he often messes up. He has often come across Sonic the Hedgehog and the other Freedom Fighters many times, and even has a grudge against Sally Acorn. He also has a sister named Nic. Although they don't exactly get along, they have worked with each other in the past.
Early Life and Bounty HunterEdit
Not much is known about Nack's past. But when he and several other weasels had kidnapped Sally Acorn, he hinted at having trouble with his parents when Sally lied about having trouble with hers. He and his sister Nic also hate each other because of a reason which presumably happened in their childhoods. (StH: #91, #123)
Nack's first encounter with Sonic was when Dr. Ivo Robotnik accidentally shattered a Chaos Emerald. He had hired Nack to find the two halves. Although Nack had captured Sonic and gotten the first half of the Chaos Emerald, he came into confrontation with Knuckles the Echidna, who defeated the weasel and then got into an argument with Sonic, resulting in a small fight. After the two resolved their differences, Sonic took Nack and shipped him off to Knothole Prison. (STT)
After Sonic's idea of roboticizing himself was rejected by the other Freedom Fighters, he stormed off, deciding to blow off some steam working out at Knothole's gym. While there, Nack took the opportunity to ambush Sonic, rendering him unconscious. He then brought the unconscious Sonic before Dr. Robotnik, demanding he be paid first before he turned over the prize. However, Robotnik merely had his Badnik lackey, Crabmeat, increase in size and grab Nack. Robotnik explained his prize was to be able to leave Robotropolis de-roboticized, at which point Crabmeat tossed Nack out of the city. After Sonic was successfully de-roboticized, he had to prove he didn't willingly Roboticize himself by finding and recapturing Nack to corroborate the story. Sonic later found Nack at the Bottom of the Barrel Bar 'n' Grill, and the weasel tried to capture him again; But Sonic outsmarted Nack and brought him back to Knothole Prison.
Imprisonment, Escape and SchemesEdit
Nack had later been incarcerated at the prison known as the Devil's Gulag. But he escaped when Snively had organized him and several other criminals into breaking out and fleeing to West Robotropolis on Big Kahuna Island. Nack helped the group (including their new allies, Kodos and Uma Arachnis) break into Mobotropolis and kidnap Nate Morgan from Deer John's while taking a moment to knock Sally out cold, but the scientist was rescued by the Secret Service and Nack was tossed back in prison. (StH: #68, #69, #70)
At some point in time Nack once again got out of prison. He ran into his sister, Nic, who told him she had acquired a new "job" and demanded her brother join in. Nack, though reluctant, did so. It turned out Nic's employer was the Echidna Councillor of Albion, Gala-Na. She wanted the siblings to capture Knuckles, who had gained the powers of a living Chaos Emerald. The weasels accepted and went to the Golden Hive Colony, where they captured Knuckles by threatening to kill Charmy Bee and Saffron. When Knuckles was handed over to Albion, he went crazy from almost having his power drained by a Chaos Syphon and was able to escape. Gala-Na asked Nack and Nic to capture him again, but the weasels realized how dangerous Knuckles was now and refused. (StH: #91, #93, #94)
Nack later showed up again and now had three new allies. Nack and his new gang kidnapped Sally Acorn and took her to a mansion that once belonged to Nack's ancestors, planning to hold her for ransom. But Sally tricked Nack, kneed him, and was able to escape from his allies. She then ran into Sonic and Mina Mongoose, who both came to save her. But Nack wasn't down for the count yet, for while he was basically defeated, he wanted revenge against Sally and attempted to shoot her. But Mina saw the bullet and jumped in its path, almost killing her; But while Mina was able to recover. Nack escaped for another day. (StH: #122, #123)
Working Solo and Joining Mammoth MogulEdit
Nack was one of the many Mobians who helped fight back the Xorda. After the one year skip, Nack now had a new employer in Station Square. Nack wanted to go after the Master Emerald on Angel Island, but his employer thought that they should wait. It is unknown if Nack ever got to pull off the heist. Not long after this, Nack was hired by Doctor Eggman to assassinate Mina Mongoose. Nack sneaked into a crowd at once of Mina's performances and tried to shoot her, but a crowd member bumped into Nack, causing him to misfire. While Bunnie Rabbot (who was at the show along with Sonic and other Freedom Figters) put out the fire on a palm tree the gun hit, Sonic chased Nack and knocked him out with a single punch. Nack was dragged back to Knothole Prison, where Sonic and Sally interrogated him. Nack wouldn't say anything at first, but Sally told him that he'd be "reunited" with the three other weasels he'd previous worked with (who were all angry at Nack for ditching them) if he wouldn't tell them who hired him. Nack immediately squealed and revealed it was Eggman. Regardless, Nack was kept in prison, likely away from his former gang members. (StH: #153)
After the Destructix (which included several of Nack's former co-escapees from the Devil's Gulag) were thrown into Knothole Prison, Nack mocked them. However, Nack was left speechless when Mammoth Mogul broke out the group. But he then realized this was a perfect distraction while he escaped, which he did. But on his way out, Nack poisoned the three unknown weasels' food to make sure they'd never come after him. Later, Nack was hired by Dr. Eggman along with Bean the Dynamite and Bark the Polar Bear (though he didn't actually work with them) to see if the rumors of Rouge having the Master Emerald were true (which they weren't). Nack ran into Sally and Bunnie on his Marvelous Queen, and thought this was the perfect opportunity to get revenge on Sally for kneeing him all those months ago. But Sally and Bunnie were able to defeat the weasel, and he was sent back to Knothole Prison along with Bean, Bark, Mammoth Mogul, and Ixis Naugus. When Eggman's Egg Fleet attacked Knothole, even Nack and his fellow prisoners were captured. But along with the citizens of Knothole and other prisoners, Nack was rescued by Sonic, Knuckles, Tails, and Amy. When everyone was sent to New Mobotropolis, Nack, Bean, and Bark decided to join Mogul, but NICOLE sent them all (including Naugus) to the new city's prison. While there, Nack's since mocked King Elias and watched Sonic's Fight with Tails. (StH: #162, #163, #173, #176, #177, #178, #179)
Later, Nack taunted Sonic when he came to the prison to talk to Mammmoth Mogul. Mogul told Sonic how they were at a stalemate and if he was not freed, he would unleash a new Fearsome Foursome. But Sonic merely laughed at the warning and left. That night, Mogul told Nack of how he had left telepathic "marks" in the minds of Mina Mongoose (who was visting New Mobotropolis), Mighty the Armadillo, and Tails. Mogul activated the marks and used them to blackmail Sonic and Ash Mongoose into stealing the Gray Chaos Emerald from Castle Acorn and give it to Mogul, granting him use of his Chaos powers once more. Mogul then freed himself, Nack, and the other prisoners after telling Sonic he would just wait for the hedgehog to die of old age before trying to take over Mobius again, though he would still not let Sonic be in peace. Impressed and glad to be free, Nack told Mogul that he had earned one free job from him. (StH: #185, #186)
It wouldn't be long before Mogul called Nack for the free job, as he wanted him, Bean, Bark, and the Destructix to bring him Sonic's shoes, it not mattering if Sonic's feet were still in them. Later, outside of Freedom HQ, Bean, Bark, and the Destructix ambushed Sonic and Sally, but the two managed to get the fight in their favor when Sally hired Bean and Bark to protect Sonic. But Nack, who had been hiding in some nearby bushes, blasted Sonic with an energy rifle, knocking him out. Bean and Bark went back to Mogul's side while the Destructix chained up Sonic and put him into a truck. Nack then told Sleuth Dog he would take out Sally, Sleuth agreeing and heading back to the Casino Night Zone with the other bounty hunters. Nack then told Sally he would give her ten seconds to run towards Freedom HQ before he started shooting at her. Sally started running and narrowly missed getting blasted by Nack by entering the base through a secret entrance. Nack followed her inside and was about to blast her when Amy whacked him from behind with her Piko Piko Hammer, sending him flying out of the base. When Bunnie and Antoine D'Coolette came looking for him, he was nowhere to be found. He most likely came to and escaped to fight another day. (StH: #187, #188)
Weapons and AbilitiesEdit
Nack's primary weapon is a laser gun, though he has used other gadgets in the past. He also has a hoverbike known as the "Marvelous Queen", which hasn't been seen since Rouge took it after the Freedom Fighters arrested Nack along with Mogul, Bean and Bark. Before that he had a sky sled. Nack's main and what may be his only ability is that he can use his tail as a spring, allowing him to jump high into the air.
