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 out to be 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.
