At first glance Alex is cool, timid and curious, he's incredibly innocent and mildly shy, suffering from slight social anxiety. He doesn't like being put on the spot in pressuring situations, he gets embarrassed quite easily and in most cases doesn't go out of his way to get into confrontations. Though when he's suited up he gets more confident. But once you get to know him and he opens up Alex begans displaying a different side, to his friends he's humorous and talkative. Alex has an affinity for music and can play the Piano, guitar and can sing quite well. Though he hasn't shared this talent with anyone.

Alex's history is a complicated one, he's been hero, villain, assassin, savior and ultimately erased.

But this is how his story originally began.

In the time 2067 Wallace Walker had a son,When Alexander's father first sensed the Speed Force in his son in Alexanders body he was not at all surprised, he had a feeling that his son would become a speedster. But he was surprised to see how potent it resonated in his body how deeply it was connected to his core his soul Because his son was special, he mainlined the Speed Force. When Alex was about 5 years old Wallace knew it was his time to begin, not as a costumed hero...But as his trainee. First it began with knowledge, Wallace didn't want to be training an immature child so he and his son began working on building knowledge. After that it was reflexes, honing his natural human responses would be essential for moving at superspeeds.

Then it was time for the speed itself Alex's powers were stunted and Wallace didn't know the cause of why. When Alex was 7 his father had a battle with the Time Master and his mother, brother and sister got caught in the crossfire and ultimately died at the hands of the villain and left Wallace broken and unable to heal for some unnatural reason, some believed it was a mental block he had put on himself. It broke something in Alex but it allowed something to come into its place...Power. Alex understood what his father had been teaching him and now he was unafraid. But during Wallaces time of recovery Alex was taken prisoner and was sold into slavery

After a few months a contact assassin was hired to take out the slave traders. And somehow he knew this child was special, so they sent him to the League Of Darkness. The League was an immensely large group of assassins run by one man...Raysh Al Shaytan. They made him into one of them. But it wasn't for him. So after several years, he left. After several months of living by himself A;ex was found and raised by Thomas Richards, the Outlaw himself. Though he loved his time with Thomas, death separated them, this was the final straw for Alex, and he found himself speeding through time where he landed in 2019, after spending several months here and meeting the woman who would soon be his girlfriend Alex saved his family and reversed the timeline where he went back too and stayed for over a year.

When he turned 18 Alex has returned to 2019 where he's found several things different. And after learning that his father Wally was leaving for the future to start a life Alex finally grew up and took his place as the Fastest Man Alive. Absorbing the residual energy of his father Alex grew in speed, no on par but Lucy Walker, the creator of the Speed Force they became the two fastest beings in existence.

But alas sometimes things change, and as it turns out Alex messed up badly. His changes to the timeline and many other timelines resulted in the timestream and the Speed Force tag-teaming and wiping Alex out of existence. But. They saw the good in Alex, and so they put him back. But this time they erased his memory, filling in the gaps with a fake life.

In addition they completely stripped Alex of his powers leaving him a normal human.

Now in the time 2020, Alex has no recollection of his previous life, believeing he was born on July 7th 2003 instead of July 7th 2067.


Then the Speed Force changed it's mind a third time, after learning that a crisis would soon be coming to this world and the Multiverse itself they chose Alex's time displaced son Jai to help save them all, but they needed Alex back. And so on October 29th 2019 Alex West was chosen by the Speed Force, and a fateful bolt of lightning struck him once again giving him super speed. But Alex's amnesia remained, and though he had power he had not much of it. The Speed Force believed that a taste in humility would help steer Alex on the correct path. So it refused to give Alex back his full powerset, instead leaving him only capable of running barely faster then the speed of sound.

Alex's fated bolt of lightning drew attention and in the span of a few hours Thomas Richards stood on the doorstep of Alex's home. Saying less then nothing, he told Alex about his time as the Outlaw, entrusting his secret to Alex, and weirdly it felt right to the young speedster. Thomas told him about the Maxine Institute and enrolled him. He gave him a card and told him to call if he needed anything.

After searching out and finding out a person he once knew Juno Fei Alex bought and modified his uniform, this was also the first time he had met someone from his previous life. And after the confronation with Juno Alex began experiencing frequent and painful headaches, which in were reality temporal backlash, and the memories of his previous life trying to come back to him.

After sneaking out of the school after facing his first supervillain Alex learned of the Speed Force and on his way back inside he found himself face to face with none other then himself. Somehow the original version of Alex managed to claw it's way out and to Alex. He then explained to Alex what the situation was, and how he was erased out of the Timeline, he didn't tell Alex about their memories though, wanting Alex to figure out and remember for himself.

After their talk and telling Alexander that his memories would return in due timethe Original Alex erased himself leaving Alex really confused and now the only Alex West in this timeline.

And now he has to prepare for the Crisis.

Super Speed
No Caption Provided

Alex's speed comes from a combination of muscular speed, and sped up nervous system with faster nerve conduction velocity and high energy resources that are empowered by the Speed Force. The young man discharges a trail of blurs behind him when he runs usually depending on what he's wearing at the moment. The Mitochondria in Alex's body are in a super sped up condition allowing his body to function and draw energy at super speed.

So far Alex hasn't accomplished much with his powers but Alex's potential is immense and he's already learning how to control his speed.

Fighting Style
No Caption Provided

Alex has no taught fighting style. But he has three things going for him. He's smart, he's fast, and he's agile. Alex has good knowledge on the human anatomy which helps him when he's taking down an enemy, his speed makes him dangerous seeing as how he's able to react to stimuli so quickly, and react just as quickly, adding this to the fact that he possesses inhuman agility and reflexes closes the gap that Alex's lack in speed. Alex's agility allows his body to contort and perform feats of acrobatics that no human could ever perform.

?: Alex's Gear

. . .

?Goggles and Cowl: Made from the same materials as the materials found in NASA Space shuttles, Alex's goggles are designed to be virtually indestructable, as said by Juno Fei "it doesn't matter what speed you're going, those will be the last things to break." Alex has outfitted the goggles with extra modifications to help him in his hero goals, his goggles are able to access X-Rays, Infared and even the Ultraviolet spectrum allowing Alex extra maintence when on patrols, they also have a play back feature that allows Flashpoint the ability to replay instances and battles he's gotten into. The cowl is a nomex-kevlar weave built to withstand high-speed and high energy impacts, it's built to cover most of Alex's face leaving just his mouth and hair exposed, allowing his fiery red hair to blow free, because Alex says that it's "Uncomfortable" wearing a full head cowl.

1. Flashpoint's Suit: Originally a Matte black suit with harded padding, this suit seemed oddly desighned for a Speedster, extremely heat and friction resistant Alex felt this suit call to him as if it was made just for him. But even with it's already cool features Alex knew he had to modify this for any situation, so he called up Thomas Richards, and the Outlaw himself helped Alex further advance his suit. And so they got to work. Taking pieces from an advanced infantry armor system constructed from Nomex, they added several layers onto Alex's uniform, mostly based from Thomas' own combat armor. The first layer of protection is an undersuit with built-in temperature regulators designed to keep Alex at a comfortable temperature in almost any condition. The second layer of protection consists of armor built over the chest, calves, thighs, arms, and back, plates are also located between his shoulders and shoulder blades. His armor features a kevlar bi-weave that can stop slashing weapons and can also deflect any bullet short of a straight shot impact, and reinforced joints that allow maximum flexibility and mobility. He does this because he doesn't fully trust his powers, and he wants to be situated for any scenario. Sandwiched in between is the MR-fluid based liquid armor system. The proprietary Smart MR-fluid hardens in response to impacts, specifically designed to provide superior shock absorption, as well as enabling greater force delivery behind counterattacks perfect for if Alex wipes out at high speeds. The liquid body armor layer is also more flexible, allowing for greater maneuverability and faster elimination of multiple targets in quick succession . The armor was then coated with a black latex material to dampen Thomas' heat signature, making him difficult to detect with night-vision equipment. The two completed the armor by coloring it yellow and red and placing a red lightning logo on a white circle in the center of his chest.

?2: Snack compartment: Pretty self explanatory, due to Alex needing to consume a lot of food because of his superspeed, he carries high calory, high protein bars in his gauntlets.
