On entering the House he is carrying:

  • A wallet with a credit card, FBI ID, driving licence and about $120
  • Sunglasses
  • A Swiss Army knife
  • A Glock 26 handgun with limited ammo (6 bullets)
  • A burnt notebook
  • A camera
  • 1 roll of tin foil (Just in case)

Background:

Nicholas was born in Madison, Ohio in 1978 to ordinary, white collar office workers. After graduating college he was recruited by the FBI due to his high intellect and astounding attention to detail.
This, as it turned out, was a mistake.
As Nicholas grew older he became increasingly paranoid, believing that everyone was out to get him and gradually drifting away from his friends and family. To get him out of their hair, the FBI's directors moved him to the UIU, as they did with many of their more troublesome operatives, and considered the matter resolved.
For Nicholas however, what should have been the end of his career was in fact a new beginning. Perfectly at home in the world of conspiracy and the paranormal, Nicholas' crippling paranoia only grew more problematic, and with every passing mission he became more and more convinced that humanity was not alone in the universe.
This all came to a head when, following a tip off about exploding cattle, Nicholas noticed a man near the scene of the investigation who seemed slightly… off.
Maybe it was because he seemed too professional, or his accent was slightly wrong, or maybe it was because he was claiming that everything was fine, when Nicholas could clearly smell blood in the air, but Nicholas could tell that the man wasn't telling them everything.
As his more incompetent team mates turned back to base, Nicholas snuck off after the agent, sticking to the shadows as best as he could.
About a minute later he was caught. But he had already seen too much.
He wasn't quite sure what it was but, in between the broken bodies of cattle, Nicholas saw a creature beyond reason. It stared down at him, and he stared back and it changed him. He felt his mind shift and buckle as a new section of his brain he had never known existed suddenly grew and burst in to life. As he reached out towards the odd man, a beam of something shot out from his hand and in to a nearby wall, blowing it in to tiny pieces.
As the man he had followed reached inside his pocket, screaming something about 'Threat Entity active' and 'liquidate immediately', Nicholas found himself being pursued by a number of black suited figures who seemed to have appeared from nowhere. Realising that he had uncovered an operation of the infamous Men in Black, Nicholas ducked through a nearby barn door…
And woke up in a place far odder than he ever could have imagined.
