Bio: Kent Nelson was born to Celestine Babcock Nelson, a
spiritual and Sven Nelson, a archaeologist. Kent's mother died sometime
after his birth under unknown circumstances. Kent's destiny was already
written and at the age of 12, his sheltered life would soon change Sven
Nelson had decided to take his son Kent on a dig to the Valley of Ur in
Mesopotamia to an archaeological site. The natives were too scared to
enter the temple, fearing curses and the wrath of God which did not
disturb Sven Nelson. Sven and Kent ventured into the temple of Nabu the
Wise that would forever change their lives.
Kent wandered around the temple and stumbled upon an ancient sarcophagus
containing the giant body of Nabu the Wise, an ancient Egyptian
sorcerer. Kent felt that he had to pull the lever that was keeping Nabu
asleep after a hundreds of centuries. After pulling the lever that kept
Nabu in suspended animation, a poisonous gas swept through the temple
and killed Sven Nelson but left Kent unharmed.
As gratitude for his release, Nabu would offer to teach the boy
unlimited power. Kent did not want this power but only to have his
father back but with a wave of his hand, Nabu had removed all knowledge
of Sven's death from the boy. Within that week, Nabu had transformed
Kent into a full grown man and taught him the ways of mysticism. Nabu's
last wish was for Kent to release all his power on his master, Kent
could not kill his master as he had grown attached to Nabu the Wise.
Nabu made a gesture of his hand and Kent remembered that the gas that
freed Nabu had killed his father. In an angry rage, Kent summoned all
his power to destroy the murderer of his father. Nabu's true origin was
revealed to Kent, Nabu was a energy being, a Lord of Order. As a final
gift, Nabu gave Kent a golden helmet and an amulet that would allow him
to fight the never ending battle of Order and Chaos. Dr. Fate. Kent
