Naterad is the slash ship between Nate Heywood and Behrad Tomaz from the Legends of Tomorrow fandom.


Season 4


As Nate hugs Zari, she disappears and he pulls back to have her brother Behrad standing there instead. Behrad exclaims that Nate just came back to life. Nate feels that something is wrong, but Behrad ignores him comment and says that there was more pelvis in the hug than usual, but it's all good, and places his hand on Nate's shoulder. Nate apologizes, but says that there's something missing, before going over to Ray.

Season 5

This section is in need of major improvement. Please help improve this article by editing it.


Nate is lying on the inversion table, and admits that he's bummed that they let Sara down, but glad to have met Rasputin. He then asks for some help and Behrad uses the air totem to get him up. Nate tells him that Rasputing told him about the woman he loved before he died. It sounds crazy, but it feels right. Behrad suggests that Nate has soul searching to do, and asks if he wants to watch "How Stella Got Her Groove Back" again. Nate asks if he might have split memory, or partial amnesia, only to turn back and find Behrad on the inversion table. Behrad suggests that might be what's happening with Gideon. This either means that Nate is a computer with the same virus, or they changed the timeline when they made Heyworld. Behrad says that he has to tell Sara, but Nate tells him to stay on the table for five minutes. His back will thank him.

Nate waits with Behrad as he finishes up the last of his repairs on Gideon. He finishes and decides to turn in. He and Nate share a fist bump and say goodnight, and Behrad tells Nate not to stay up to late. Nate says he won't and Behrad heads to bed.


Behrad is about to use the memory wiper on Zari, when Nate stops him. He says that Behrad can't wipe Zari's memory, given the other timeline. Maybe being there will bring back memories. Behrad insists that he knows his sister, and she's always been who she is. Gideon then calls them to the bridge, and the two head there, but not before Behrad locks Zari in the lab.


While staking out Ghengis' hideout, Nate asks Behrad when he and Charlie hooked up. Behrad asks if it's that obvious, and Nate confirms so. Behrad admits that they got together after Heyworld, and Nate says that's nice. He then asks if Charlie shape-shifted, and Behrad asks if that's what he really wants to talk about. Nate says that he does, but they don't have to. He can tell that Charlie is affecting Behrad and tells him to talk. Behrad says that it's stupid, that she left without saying goodbye. Nate says that sucks, but being immortal she might have gotten tired of goodbye's. Behrad wanted her to text at least, when their prisoner in the back suggests that it wasn't about him. Nate says that he has a point, and tells Behrad to chin up. He's a catch and if there was a female version of him, Nate would date her. He points out that they don't know why Zari left, and he should just check his ego and ask her. Behrad says that he's right and thanks him. They do a quick handshake before Nate looks in the back and realizes that they're prisoner is gone.


As Ray is showing Behrad the ring he got for Nora, Nate runs in and tells him that Nora has arrived. He places his arm around Behrad and says that their work is done. They then start to back up and head back to the Waverider.

Behrad and Nate rush up to Ray as he exits the Waverider, and Nate asks when the bachelor party is. Ray explains that Damien Darhk came back from the dead, and can't let Sara interfere. Behrad says that they might be able to talks Sara out of it.

After talking to Nora, Ray join Nate and Behrad in the kitchen. Nate is surprised that Nora shut him down, and Behrad thinks that they're setting up a lifetime of lies by hiding Ray from Damien. When he visits, or when they have kids. Ray then asks if he's rushing things, and Nate yells yes. Behrad gives him a look and Nate admits that they couldn't say anything till Ray did. They then both each take one of Ray's hands. Nate says that it feels rushed, and Behrad points out that she hid him after the perfect dinner. Ray then realizes that the ring is still in the dessert.

While watching Mr. Parker Cul-De-Sac, Nate asks if Mr. Parker is getting drunk. Nate points out that he's done 4,000 hours of children's television and deserves it. Charlie then comes in and asks why they haven't paid any attention to the encore alarm. They then both bolt up and Behrad notices that it's at Constantine's house. Nate realizes that Ray is int trouble and Charlie tells them to go. Pippa says that she wants to go, and they all say no, but Pippa then just wishes them there.


Behrad figures out that Heyworld caused the timeline to change and that Zari is the point. Nate explains to her that she's been seeing temporal echo's, from before the timeline change. Behrad says this means that Zari was a Legends before the switch. She was probably the computer expert, and Nate points out that she and Behrad probably shared the totem. The boys then proclaim "Wonder Twins!" and give each other a high five. Behrad thinks that three of them probably hung out all the time.


As Zari worries about her boss coming over, there's a knock on the door. Behrad suggests that she might have come early, when Nate opens the door and comes in. Behrad is happy to see him, doing a horrible British accent. Zari asks why he's doing it and Nate tells them that he got an audition. He then fires the crossbow that he has and it explodes the glass of gray mush onto Behrad. He then goes to clean up and leaves Zari with Nate.

As original Zari tries to get answers out of Nate, Nate calls for Behrad and says that Zari might have hit her head. Behrad enters the room and thinks that she might have eaten a pot brownie, when there's a knock on the door. Nate pushes Zari into the closet as Behrad says they'll distract her boss. Zari gets out of the closet and says that they're on a tv show before finding a door. She asks what's behind the door, but Behrad doesn't know. Nate says that it never occured to them to open it. Zari opens the door and finds a whole other set on the otherside. She asks if they're coming, and they say that Buds stick together like glue before doing a handshake.

Behrad asks if they're on another TV show, and Nate agrees. They've gone from fun sitcom to BBC period piece. Zari suggests they play along, and that she and Behrad are aristocrats while Nate is their servant. Behrad laughs as Nate gives a small bow.

— Shayan Sobhian[2]


Fans started to joke that Nate and Behrad were together, when at the end of season 4 Zari was replaced with him, and the two had been dating. It was mostly a joke but some did see ship potential in their brief interaction. Shipping picked up at the start of the season 5, quickly gaining fans with one episode. The ship continued to grow as the season went on, with non-shippers still enjoying their bro moments.

On AO3, Naterad is the second most written relationship for Behrad and the tenth most written for Nate. The ship has a more consistent following on Tumblr and Twitter, as the ship lends itself well to "bro-post" style content.
