Status

Isn't Daphne Millbrook going to be a new character introduced in season three? --Pinkkeith 10:12, 5 August 2008 (EDT)

  • Yes, but for now we need to treat her as a graphic novel character.--MiamiVolts (talk) 10:22, 5 August 2008 (EDT)

Company agent status?

In Our Lady of Blessed Acceleration, Daphne's partner in crime is captured by the Company. When she returns to her place, someone is waiting and gives her the assignment to gain access to the formula. He claims to be able to keep Samir from telling on her... I'd say it's a safe assumption that Daphne's working for the Company now, but she likely has no idea that she is.--MiamiVolts (talk) 02:01, 23 September 2008 (EDT)

  • Mellouk's assigner says that that Mellouk and Daphne were always working for "them" (albeit unbeknownst), but he never says for whom. I'll bite that it's probably the Company, but is that for sure--seems like a bit of a leap, and it's an even bigger leap to call her an agent, I think. But if we somehow assume that the Daphne is working for the Company, we should probably first assume that the assigner is working for the Company. The only place I on the wiki that I can find any such link is the category that was assigned to Daphne. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 02:09, 23 September 2008 (EDT)
    • I agree it's a leap to call her an agent. I guess we'll be finding out soon enough whether or not her assigner was an agent.--MiamiVolts (talk) 02:13, 23 September 2008 (EDT)
      • Looks like we were right to wait on Daphne's agent status.--MiamiVolts (talk) 01:02, 16 October 2008 (EDT)

Age

Any info on how old Daphne is? Jason Garrick 21:14, 9 October 2008 (EDT)

  • Probably mid 20s but nothing canon. --  Seclusion  talk / contribs 21:26, 9 October 2008 (EDT)
    • The actress, Brea Grant, is 27, according to her page, so that might give some clue as to her age. I was wondering this too, because she seems too young to be married to Matt, who is almost 40. --PrometheusMMIV 17:40, 10 November 2008 (EST)
      • Maybe we should be saying how much of a winner Matt is for wooing a cute girl so much younger than he is. My wife is the same age as I am, but she is petite and cute like Daphne and I am a big fatty like Matt. Don't question her, just holla for me!--Mtundu 02:45, 7 January 2009 (EST)
  • Daphne is 27 (The Caged Bird). At the beginning of the novel she is three, 24 years later the eclipse happens (she may be 28 by now, but we don't know her birthday, so there's no way of telling).

Daphne as a Main Character

I think Daphne should be a main character. So far she has appeared in (I think) every season 3 episode. Albeit she doesn't have her own story, so I guess that's what a supporting character is defined as (a character who adds to another's storyline to create an interesting plot). But since she started working for Pinehearst her story has become kind of independent. I guess we'll have to wait and see. FlamingTomDude 12:58, 16 October 2008 (EDT)

Wynn Everett as Daphne?

Tristan had added "Other reports claim that Wynn Everett was cast in Daphne's role (as Joy)." to the "Notes" section. I don't recall reading that, but if it's true it should probably be re-added with a source.--MiamiVolts (talk) 02:40, 14 November 2008 (EST)

Remove "agent of Pinehearst"

Daphne has changed sides offical to the "good guys." She openly betrayed Arthur and confessed her betrayal to Parkman. So i suggest we change her occupation to "former agent of Pinehearst"--BlueRavenBoy 12:09, 18 November 2008 (EST)

Daphne and the Winchester Brothers

I just read in the official NBC announcement of "The Eclipse, Part 1" that Daphne is from Lawrence, Kansas. I think this is definitely a bow to Eric Kripke and "Supernatural" because it is also the hometown of the Winchester Boys. I think that's an interesting fact we could put under "Notes". What do other people think of that? -- Spielor 09:34, 20 November 2008 (EST)

  • Not until The Eclipse, Part 1 airs. By the way, that's where my brother-in-law lives, too. :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 10:47, 20 November 2008 (EST)
    • I also meant after next week's episode but forgot to mention it. ;-) -- Spielor 17:56, 20 November 2008 (EST)
  • I don't see how this is relavent at all. Lawrence, Kansas is the 6th largest city in Kansas It could be (and likely is) a mere coincident. Making a claim like this is to say that any reference to any city that has something to do with a nother show is a reference, which is just foolish. Pyrotics 22:34, 24 November 2008 (EST)
    • Pyrotics put it perfectly. I was about to respond to this earlier but couldn't think of a good way to put my words. But in any case, I agree with Pyrotics; nothing should be mentioned about Supernatural or Eric Kripke or anything like that. Sincerely, Thrashmeister [ U | T | C ] 22:37, 24 November 2008 (EST)

Adding her Age

Should we add her age now? In the new graphic novel we see her as a three year old at the start, then it goes to twenty four years later at the end (which would be the October 2006 eclipse). That makes her twenty-seven. -- FlamingTomDude.

  • We don't know that it was exactly twenty four years, or whether or not she's had a birthday since the eclipse. - Josh (talk/contribs) 04:09, 29 November 2008 (EST)
    • Actually we are both wrong. We do know it was exactly twenty-four years later, but I think I was mistaken in saying she was three at the beginning. I read the first page again where it says '24 Years Later...' but it never says she was three. -- FlamingTomDude 2:04, 30 November 2008 (EST)
      • Unless, I'm missing something "exactly" is just an assumption. If we assume that "24 years later" means exactly 24 years later, then we also have to assume that there's a day exactly two years before October 2006 and exactly two years before 2007, according to Doyle. - Josh (talk/contribs) 17:34, 30 November 2008 (EST)
    • Okay so maybe not 'exactly', but it says twenty-four years later on the very first page. I don't really see why we're still having this debate, however. --FlamingTomDude 00:17, 5 December 2008 (EST)

Cured?

How did Daphne's ability heal her cerebral palsy? How can you suddenly move and run really fast if you once couldn't stand at all? It doesn't make sense.--Elemental Manipulator - When in doubt, ask BTE 05:42, 6 December 2008 (EST)

  • How does an eclipse prevent people from using abilities? A lot of things don't make sense in Heroes.--BardinessBoy 06:02, 6 December 2008 (EST)
  • Maybe her power strengthens her legs/body and thus allows her to move fast? Like how a cheetah has stronger legs and thus can move faster? Also why in "One of Us, One of Them" was she able to stand with the haitian near by if when the eclipse occurred she wasn't? I read somewhere else that someone asked it but it hasn't been mentioned here yet..--ViciousKillgasm 04:54, 9 December 2008 (EST)
    • That's an interesting question. The Haitian probably doesn't suppresses an ability completely, either by choice or just cause he can't, remember that Matt was able to get a word from Bennet when the Haitian was by his side twice back in season one, when he lacked a finer control over his telepathy, it must be the same thing, he suppressed it enough for her not to be able to move at super speed, but not to the point of shutting the ability down all-together, which would result in her not being able to walk. Intuitive Empath - Talk - Contributions 13:05, 8 December 2008 (EST)
      • It is possible that the Haitian's ability does not fully render hers inactive. I for one have been interested in how the Haitian's powers seem to have some limits and I wonder what we might learn in the future about how extensive they are.--Mtundu 02:44, 18 December 2008 (EST)
        • That has been explained in the BTE interviews now, the Haitian only dampens abilities, the eclipse is what completely shuts them down. Intuitive Empath - Talk - Contributions 08:42, 18 December 2008 (EST)

Cerebral Palsy = Heart-warming storyline

My daughter has mild cerebral palsy, and I was touched when Daphne explained what her disability was. I know it was just a momentary glimpse into the disability, but it is interesting to me that her character always has this in her background. Now as I watch Daphne run, I think of my daughter Zoe zipping through a corn field one day.--Mtundu 03:21, 18 December 2008 (EST)

  • That's wonderful. I think the writers really hit the right vibe with the story--it was sweet and sentimental, but never overly saccharine. And it was totally NOT the direction I was thinking they were going to take her character. I, too, thought of a student of mine who has cerebral palsy. :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 11:00, 18 December 2008 (EST)


If you are gone

You were the best character on the show. Loved you even more than Tracy. This show is almost ruined for me now... Dean Harper 01:06, 10 February 2009 (EST)

  • I wouldn't count her out yet... -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 01:19, 10 February 2009 (EST)
  • Her page already states that she was an evolved human... this is saying she is dead, but we don't know this for a fact, right? I really hope she isn't, I was really attached to her!--Jessica13 10:34, 10 February 2009 (EST)
  • We didn't see the body being disposed of, and both Matt and DL have survived gunshot wounds, I'd say she's got a good chance of being alive, and hope so too, she's the best thing that came out of Volume 3! SylarMonroe 09:40, 14 February 2009 (EST)
    • I personally thought the best thing in Volume 3 was Sylar turning back to his old ways. Matt did survive like 5 bullet wounds to the chest, but he was shot by a small firearm, Daphne is weaker and less "bulkier" than Matt and was shot about 4-5 times with heavy assault rifles. On top of that where did her body go? We saw Matt and a second later he's with Peter and Ando. --Arkillion 18:56, 15 February 2009 (EST)
      • "[W]here did her body go?" Exactly. We can't say she's dead unless we've seen a body. On top of that, yeah, Daphne's awesome. -Whizzles 19:31, 15 February 2009 (EST)
        • I'll keep my mouth shut. :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 22:54, 15 February 2009 (EST)
          • Is it just me or does it seem that the writers are trying to rule out time travel...first they kill Arthur (which had to happen anyway), the Hiro loses his power, then Peter loses his powers, the Andophne (ando + daphne) won't be having anymore time travel trips if she is dead...and there goes every time traveler on the show!--Anthony Gooch 00:00, 16 February 2009 (EST)
            • Plus who knows, maybe when Claire was standing in front of her and recieved that reign of gunfire maybe some of her blood splattered on Daphne, not only healing her death but her cerebal palsy too!....yeah, i'm very hopeful lol!--Anthony Gooch 00:05, 16 February 2009 (EST)
            • They're not "trying" -- they are ruling out time travel. It's been highly criticized as a crutch and a murky storytelling device. I believe Joe and Aron mentioned this in a Behind the Eclipse, and I know I've heard Tim Kring talk about phasing out time travel. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:21, 16 February 2009 (EST)
              • I know people disgaree, but I think its interesting that now they've stomped out all possibilites of time travel. That ability is too much of "deus ex machina" plot device, and its nice to see people resort to other means to do things, like Hiro learning that you don't need powers to be a hero. -- Bonchilla 03:26, 18 February 2009 (EST)
              • I'm in favor of getting rid of time-travel. But that doesn't mean that they've gotten rid of Daphne. There's a big difference between someone who can time-travel in an emergency with help from Ando, and someone who can blink through time as easily as I walk down the street.--Cro Magnon 12:08, 23 February 2009 (EST)
              • Perhaps matt jr.s abilty may be able to bring people to life and not just machines therefore allowing her to come back to life.--monkeyboy401 11:13, 30 February 2009 (EST)

So....

Any confirmation on whether she's dead or not?--Steelymcbeam 04:19, 18 February 2009 (EST)

  • Read about it in spoilers.--Alen (talk) 12:31, 23 February 2009 (EST)
    • Well, now it's official... I guess this clears the way for Matt to get back with Janice again, but it's sad that she is gone. RIP, Daphne.--MiamiVolts (talk) 00:09, 24 March 2009 (EDT)
  • NOOOOOOOO! That's not true! That's impossible!(((((((((( :'( --Altes 02:45, 24 March 2009 (EDT)
    • Her whole death sequence was just sad... --Gibbeynator 09:16, 24 March 2009 (EDT)
      • Bummer! :(--Cro Magnon 10:22, 24 March 2009 (EDT)
        • what about "touch and go" Matty P junior? Fred1793 16:46, 24 March 2009 (EDT)
          • Seems like they're making sure to clear out all characters from Volumes 2 and 3. People noticed that the Paris rooftop was the same set as the Deveaux rooftop right? Intuitive Empath - Talk - Contributions 17:53, 24 March 2009 (EDT)
            • haven't seen Monica yet! Haven't seen the episode yet as i'm in England, any pictures?Fred1793 18:42, 26 March 2009 (EDT)

Ability inconsistency

In the eclipse part 1 and 2 we see that when her ability is blocked by the eclipse that she can't walk, but earlier in season 3 her abilities were blocked by the hatian and she could walk just fine. --Gamerelite1 11:40, 7 June 2009

  • True...but there's nothing that says the Haitian's ability has the same effect on people as an eclipse. For instance, when the Haitian tried to stop Arthur's ability, he was unsuccessful (Our Father), but the eclipse took away Arthur's abilities completely. I wouldn't say it's an inconsistency, I'd say that the eclipse and the Haitian do similar things, but just not necessarily to the same degree. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 12:44, 7 June 2009 (EDT)
    • It seems to me like the Haitian partially suppresses the DNA related to the power and only the power, while the eclipse reverts you to a state before being powered. --Ikkian 13:00, 7 June 2009 (EDT)
      • This has been dealt in the BTE before, the Haitian doesn't make a complete repression, the eclipse does. And the Haitian's ability has nothing to do with DNA, it has to do with the mind. Intuitive Empath - Talk - Contributions 13:04, 7 June 2009 (EDT)
        • It's just a way to explain it that I've used. --Ikkian 16:12, 7 June 2009 (EDT)

Image Change

Does anyone think Daphne's image should be changed to the one included? I do. Post if you agree. AJUTChronicles

THIS ONE??
  • I'll post that I don't agree. I think the image we have now is fine. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 10:15, 29 August 2009 (EDT)
