Other Aliases: Nicholas Hudson (full name). Nick Terry (birth name).
Nick's mother Diana died in late 1994. Diana had selected Michael Hudson to be the father of her child, but never told Michael her parental intentions. There were instructions in her will to contact Michael in the event of her death.
Nick never received much attention from her mother, who focused her energies on her job. She finally had a stroke at her desk.
Nick didn't meet his father, Michael Hudson, until he was 19. Nick greatly resented Michael at first, but Michael chipped away little by little at Nick's defenses. When Nick discovered that Michael was dying of leukemia, he repented, and even offered to donate his bone marrow. Michael and Nick remained quite close until Michael's death in 1998.
In 1995 Nick not only gained a father but two half-sisters.
Vicky Hudson. When Nick first met Vicky he came on to her like a house on fire. Vicky supported Nick when he was accused of raping Toni Burrell and attempted to find evidence proving his innocence. Since then, they went their separate ways and have very little to do with each other.
Marley Hudson. Marley and Nick have yet to meet.
Clara Hudson, paternal grandmother. John Hudson, uncle. Steven Frame, half-nephew. Kirk Harrison, half-nephew. Gregory Hudson, cousin.
