the past
Ned grew up in the small but homey town of Coeur d'Coeurs, next door to a girl named Charlotte Charles (nicknamed "Chuck") on whom he had a childhood crush. Ned discovered his gift by reviving his dog, Digby, who was run over by a truck. Later that day, Ned also revived his mother after she suddenly died of a brain aneurysm, but soon discovered that his gift had consequences when Chuck's father died next door in exchange. Ned discovered the other effect of his gift later that night, when his mother kissed him goodnight and died a second time. During their respective parents' funerals, Ned and Chuck kissed—the first time for both of them. After the funeral, Ned's father dropped him off at the Longborough School for Boys, and never returned or contacted him again.

the present
Ned continued to test his gift, learning its limitations and rules. After finishing school, Ned opened his own restaurant, The Pie Hole, a restaurant specializing in pies. Ned lives above the restaurant in an apartment, next door to his employee, Olive Snook, who is not aware of his ability. Olive has long held a deep affection for Ned, but despite her many attempts to attract him, he has no feelings for her beyond friendship.

At the beginning of the series, private investigator Emerson Cod accidentally discovers Ned's ability when a criminal he is chasing falls off a roof into an alley where Ned is leaving his garbage. The two enter in a partnership: Ned uses his ability to revive people who have died under suspicious circumstances to ask them about the nature of their death, thus allowing Emerson to solve the crime and collect the reward money, which the two split.

the future - milliways
Shortly before alive-again-ing his childhood sweetheart, Charlotte 'Chuck' Charles, Ned rediscovered the door to Milliways, bar at the end of the universe, where he remembers spending some time there at age nine. Now he is simply trying to deal with the events of canon in conjunction to the happenings at Milliways, trying his hand at socializing and generally learning more about the universe around him.

descriptive bits
Ned is quite tall - standing at 6'3" - and he is also very lanky, consisting of all limbs and awkwardness. He wears a lot of grey and black clothing, sweaters, button-down shirts, t-shirts and typical trouser pants. He has brown hair and dark eyes. He is very likely around his late twenties (I'd say 28), and has a deep voice. He is shy and painfully awkward, and puts the 'in' in introvert. He has a good heart and is a very good listener, but he likes his alone time - which may explain why he has so few friends.
