Nick Lane is one of the Cortexiphan test subjects treated in Jacksonville.
He is a former patient at Saint Jude's Mental Hospital. Voluntarily committed to the hospital, he checked out when a lawyer notified him that he had inherited a large sum of money. His stay at the hospital was covered by an older military insurance policy that was considered uncommon. Lane is considered hyper-emotive and believed to suffer from paranoid delusions. He thinks he had been recruited as a child for top-secret experiments that would prepare him to be a soldier in a coming war.
He was treated with Cortexiphan as a child in Jacksonville, Florida. During the experimental drug in his youth, he was paired with Olivia, whom he refers to as Olive. His psychic bond with her enables him to project his criminal and sexual acts into her mind as he is committing them. His desire to terminate his life appears to be the reason he drew Olivia to his recent murders; see Suicide By Cop.
His known murders include a young mother thrown in front of a train, influencing a woman to stab her husband during a meal in a restaurant, slitting the throat of a dancer after an intimate encounter, and forcing a woman to leap from a tall building.
Lane is familiar with the ZFT Manifesto and wears the black and gray clothing (uniform) of a recruit.
With the help of Massive Dynamic, he regained control of his empathic ability, before Over There, Part 1. Later, after being shot with a 76-model pulse weapon, he disappeared with his romantic interest, Sally Clark, on Grayshot Bridge in the alternate universe's Central Park in NYC.
In the adjusted timeline (Worlds Apart) he has been recruited by David Jones, along with other Cortexiphan prodigies, to establish a harmonic blend of the two universe that will destroy the both. He is captured, then escapes custody of the Fringe science team by projecting horrendous, dark emotions on his handler.
- He clips newspaper articles about events that may be Pattern-related.
