Evolved Human Abilities

West possesses the power of flight. He has shown a high degree of control over his flight ability, varying his speed and altitude without visual cues. He maneuvers with sufficient skill to avoid overt detection from both individuals on the ground and in aircraft, despite flying in broad daylight. West claims to achieve stratospheric heights, well over 31,000 feet above the ground, without any ill effects beyond a chill from the lower temperature air. (Flying Blind)

Memorable Quotes

"See, I have this theory. Whether it's fate or choice, people break down into only two categories. You're either a robot, or an alien. My debate teacher would call that reductive. I call it a neat expression of a larger truth. Robots operate out of programs -- conventional logic. They follow the rules. Robots scan the world from side to side. Aliens are more... abstract thinkers. If they need to break a rule to keep their own paths, they do. Without fear. Aliens look down and up... when they choose to. I'm not condemning one or the other, but, I'd rather be alone than be surrounded by robots. And robots could never even see someone like me."

- West (Flying Blind)

"You can skydive without a parachute!"

"You can skydive without a plane!"

- West, Claire (Kindred)

"You're a total babe, and you have a power. By definition that makes you better than her."

"You're sweet."

- West, Claire (The Line)

"I know you can heal, Claire, but I never want to see you hurt!"

- West (The Kindness of Strangers)

"You know, last time I saw you, you were dead."

"Things change."

"I'm counting on it."

- West, Noah (Scenic Route)

"Princess is in another castle"

- West, (to Sparrow) (Rebellion, Part 4)
