Nicholas "Nick" Boyle is a fictional soldier and a central character on the supernatural drama series Poltergeist: The Legacy, which aired on Showtime from 1996 to 1998, and on the Sci-Fi Channel in 1999. Played by actor Martin Cummins, he was introduced in the pilot episode of the series, "The Legacy", also known as "The Fifth Sepulcher", and was credited in all subsequent eighty-six episodes of the show.
Nick Boyle was a member of the secret occult society known as the Legacy. Though not a researcher by trade, his membership into the august group was assured due to his father being a member. Before joining the Legacy, Nick was in the military and served as a U.S. Navy SEAL. He resigned from the service following the unfortunate deaths of many of his fellow soldiers. Nick's military training made him an abrupt and sometimes an abrasive individual, and he would often clash with the Legacy House's precept, Derek Rayne. Nick also held strong contempt for former member Philip Callaghan, whom Nick believed had turned his back on the group.
