Chazz Nygaard is Lester Nygaard's younger brother.

Early Life

Chazz was born in 1968. He was the younger brother of Lester Nygaard. Apparently, he was much more ambitious and successful than Lester. In 1996, he married Kitty Nygaard.

In 2005, he got a job at an unknown company. Eventually he was promoted to vice president of sales.

Season 1

"The Crocodile's Dilemma"

Chazz is first seen preparing a ham for the family dinner with his family and Lester's. Chazz brings Lester down to the basement to talk to Lester about his son possibly having autism, and later shows him his gun collection. Among the collection is a M249 SAW light machine gun, which he says is technically not legal to have, but has one anyway. He lets Lester hold it but he drops is immediately due to the weight, and Chazz ridicules Lester about how much of a weak older brother he is. It is implied later that he and Lester got into a physical fight off-screen.

"The Rooster Prince"

A service is held at Chazz's house, where he confides with Lester and offers him a place to stay for a few days, and suggests possibly selling the old house. Later, they sit down for a TV dinner. Chazz tells Lester he was thinking of going hunting this weekend, and asks him if he wants to come with him. Much to his surprise, Lester agrees, and also says he plans to sell the house.

"A Muddy Road"

Chazz is seen in his basement getting ready for a hunt, which Lester joins in on. They are seen outside with Lester shooting at targets and Chazz cheering behind him.

"Eating the Blame"

Chazz gets a phone call from Lester while he is watching online porn in his basement. Lester tells him he has been kidnapped, and Chazz decides to call the police. Before he can make the call, Lester tells him he is pranking him, not wanting to get the police involved. Chazz calls him an asshole, hangs up, and proceeds watching.

"Buridan's Ass"

In this episode, Chaz is framed by Lester. Lester gets the hammer he murdered Pearl with, wipes his fingerprints, and puts it in Chaz's house. Lester also puts some of Pearl's underwear in his closet to make it look like he cheated on his wife.

"Who Shaves the Barber?

Chaz is arrested after the police discover a gun in his son's backpack, and the hammer used to kill Pearl. When Lester is brought in, he creates a new story about what happened the night Vern and Pearl were murdered; Pearl had ended their affair, and Chaz, in response, killed her. As he is about to kill Lester, Vern rings the doorbell. Lester opens the door while Chaz gets the gun, and shoots Vern. Chaz is last seen shouting out Lester's name (presumably realizing that it was Lester who had framed him).

Although it is unknown what happened to Chazz or his family after this, it can be assumed that he was exonerated and released from prison one year later after it was revealed that Lester did indeed murder Pearl (and was involved with Vern's murder).
