Unlike Dev and Astrid, Nelson has no dream of becoming a pilot. He just wants a chance to build a decent life for himself and his troubled 15-year-old sister, CAITLIN. A skilled Dene hunter and trapper from a small Northern community, Nelson has struggled to adapt to the "big city" of Yellowknife since he arrived a year ago. He's a hard worker, quiet and thorough - grateful for the chance, devoted to his little sister, and determined to do well. But he's also grappling with pressures that the other members of the Arctic Air family are unaware of.
