Max Lewicki (Arjay Smith), Daniel's teaching assistant. His primary job is to keep Pierce in line and on task, whether that means grading midterms or laying out Pierce's wardrobe for the day. Max as in an episode has been seen to like "nerdy" Conventions


Whilst not much is known about Lewicki's early life, it was referenced by him in Season 3, Episode 8, Prologue that his parents were Polish Immigrants.

He also explained in Season 2, Episode 12, Brotherhood, that he has a younger brother but they were both adopted and eventually separated. After his adoption he changed his name to match those of his adoptive parents. Prior to his adoption and change of surname, his last name was Rivers.

Later in life he studied psychology at Illinois State, but he ran out of money and started working double shifts at Rexford Psychiatric Hospital as a nurse, to pay for him to go back to school.

It was during his time at Rexford that he met Daniel Pierce, and shortly before Daniel was discharged from the hospital he caught up to him and gave him some organic fruit, which promptly caused Daniel to ask him "You want a job?"

Daniel convinced him to come back to Chicago with him and promised he would get him a teacher's assistantship so he could complete Grad School.
