Nathan Goss was, according to Mr Smith, a child prodigy who lived in England in the early 21st century. He was born in 1996 in Stoke Newington, an area of London. From the ages of three to six, he attended St Rosalind Preparatory School. He subsequently attended St Rosalind Secondary School until he turned eight. With his IQ of 195, Goss achieved eleven GCSEs at A+ when he was seven, and he could read quantum physics at age eight. Around 2008, he was working at the Pharos Institute. All this information was relayed by Mr Smith to Sarah Jane Smith. (TV: The Lost Boy)

His biography, however, was made up by Mr Smith, to assure that Korst Gogg Thek Lutiven-Day Slitheen could work at the Pharos Institute. The real Nathan Goss lived in Guildford before he moved to a house at the Hambleton Estate in the Lake District together with his parents. He became a fan of Everton F.C and was a popular kid at school. He was described as being polite, a team player, really good at sports and woodwork, full of life and cheer with many girls liking him. One day, three Slitheen arrived at the Goss' home. They killed all three family members and used their skin suits to further their plans. The neighbours didn't care much about the family and didn't mind that they disappeared overnight. Only Nathan was missed by them. (PROSE: The Lost Boy)
