Nucky has had a troubled personal life. His sister [[Susan Thompson]] died of [[tuberculosis]] when they were children. His father [[Ethan Thompson]] was physically abusive during his childhood. He became involved in politics during his teens under the wing of [[Commodore Louis Kaestner]], whom he eventually succeeded when Kaestner was convicted of election fraud in 1912. Nucky's first wife [[Mabel Thompson]] killed herself in 1905 after losing their infant son. He has been consumed by his work since but has had superficial relationships with girlfriends. He had a casual relationship with former [[Ziegfield Follies]] dancer [[Lucy Danziger]] for three years by 1920. He also treated [[Jimmy Darmody]] as a surrogate son and protégé when he was growing up, partly out of guilt in his role in exposing his mother [[Gillian Darmody]] to being raped by The Commodore when she was only 12, which resulted in Jimmy's conception.

Part corrupt politician, part gangster, part crime boss, and all-greedy, Nucky senses the opportunity to further increase his fortune and power through [[bootlegging]] when [[Prohibition]] becomes official nationwide on [[January 16, 1920]]. His  expectations are proven right, but at the same time the new business turns out to be more challenging than expected, and consumes his personal life as the gangs competing for a share of the profit become more and more violent.
