Ability: Gravitational manipulation
A guy with the power to create miniature black holes, who accidentally killed his neighbor and got locked up by the Company in Level 5 for it.
- Bad Powers, Bad People: Subverted, almost to the point of being a deconstruction. Despite what the Company (and Claire, at first) think, and despite his having the perfect power for a legitimately threatening villain, he isn't a bad guy. He's very desperate to subvert this image, to the point of killing himself rather than take another life, even if it is the life of a serial killer.
- Driven to Suicide
- Hair-Trigger Temper: Has a history of his temper getting the better of him. His accidental murder of his neighbor resulted from an argument over a broken lawnmower.

- Dishing Out Dirt
- Early-Bird Cameo: She made a brief cameo in a season one graphic novel about two years before her proper debut in the "Rebellion" arc.
- Her name also pops up on early copies of Chandra's list and Word of God says that she's the hooded character on the plane of specials.
- Magical Native American: Averted. Despite being a Native American the only stereotypical facet to the character is her "One with the Earth" powers and they don't make a big deal out of it.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: The comics have her eyes glow when using her power. Sometimes at least.
- Ship Tease: With West.
