Nathaniel Northwest is a character from Gravity Falls. He is the possible founder of his hometown. Pacifica Northwest is his great-great-granddaughter. Northwest is a very wealthy man, but in reality, started out as a waste shoveler. Not only was his status of being Gravity Fall's founder a lie, but he turned one of the lowest, most corrupt leaders to ever exist. He cheated the townsfolk who built his family manor out of their reward and castigated them.
