Nolan (b. September 16, 1979) is a bully from Jefferson Middle School. According to Teddy, he lives near him and his friends.


Nolan is especially mean to Nate, Dee Dee, Chad, Teddy, and Francis throughout the book (Ex. Ambushing them with snowballs, stealing and popping Teddy's Supa-Sno Tube, etc.).

Unlike Nate, his weakness is that he is not creative causing him and the rest of Jefferson to lose the Ultimate Snowdown. He also stole Chad's pillow cushion, which was made to loosen the pressure on his butt as he broke his tailbone.

Later, Nolan became a key player in the Mud Bowl. While practicing, he encountered Nate in a museum and would have beat him had Randy Betancourt not interfered. When he failed to catch a flying frisbee and Nate did, he lost the game, breaking Jefferson's winning streak.

Physical Appearance

Nolan has light blonde hair. In both of the books he appears in, he wears a light colored shirt with a capital "J" on it ("J" represents "Jefferson"). He also wears dark jeans and white shoes. According to Nate Wright, Nolan is very strong.

Personality and Traits

Nolan is highly sadistic, vindictive, and competitive. He enjoys degrading students of P.S. 38, Jefferson's rival school, and his only known pet peeve is losing, which he throws a fit more than most other pet peeves.



  • Dustin is a frenemy of Nolan.

Behind the scenes

Despite appearing rarely, Nolan has a tendency to play a major role when he does show up.
