Character Bio

Dr. Harrison Wells photo
Dr. Harrison Wells ~ "My name is Harrison Wells. Tonight, the future begins. The work my team and I will do here will change our understanding of physics, will bring about advancements in power, advancements in medicine, and trust me that future will be here faster than you think".

Harrison Wells owns a digital copy of a newspaper detailing the disappearance of The Flash in a crisis, dated from the year 2024.

Seemingly friendly and caring with his team, Harrison demonstrates a clinical and dispassionate capacity for killing to achieve and protect his goals when dealing with Simon Stagg, and appears to have sacrificed Ronnie Raymond in order to ensure Barry Allen's transformation into The Flash. He may therefore be a high functioning sociopath. He certainly has acting talents, having convinced even those around him on a regular basis that he is wheelchair-bound. He has also been shown to possess a sharp wit, and more than enough scientific knowledge to preserve his cover identity.

Harrison is very intelligent, as evidenced by the crucial role he plays in Barry Allen's team, he also spend most of his life trying to create the particle accelerator, and eventually succeeded.

Harrison is a great tactician, as evidenced by him coming up with plans to help Barry defeat the metahumans he goes up against as The Flash.

Prior to becoming director of S.T.A.R. Labs he worked there for at least five years as a scientist. When Wade Eiling approached S.T.A.R Labs with a view to conducting enhanced gene therapy for soldiers Wells agreed to work with him as he was interested in its applications for civilians. Eiling directed the project towards mind control for interrogation purposes and planned to conduct testing on a captive gorilla named Grodd. Wells, who by this point had seen Eiling's inhumane methods, shut down the program, despite having undisclosed plans for Grodd.

Wells became the director of S.T.A.R. Labs in 2013. In late 2013, he held an event at which he planned to switch on S.T.A.R. Labs' particle accelerator, which he had created. He began speaking on stage, claiming that the particle accelerator would create a brighter future, bringing advancements in power and medicine, as well as physics as they knew it. Later that night, the particle accelerator was switched on. However, particles began to behave abnormally, such as liquids floating in the air, followed by a loud bang from the accelerator. Wells sent Ronnie Raymond and Cisco Ramon down to manually shut the particle accelerator down before anything bad happened. After Ronnie had vented the system, assuring S.T.A.R. Labs' safety but sacrificing himself in the process, Cisco called Wells down to the chamber. Wells made his way down, but not before entering a secret room, taking off his glasses and watching a screen, on which Barry Allen, a forensic assistant, was struck by lightning in his lab. After the explosion, Harrison was allegedly paralysed, though it was a facade.

After he was put in to a coma due to the lightning strike caused by the shockwave, Barry's condition eventually went critical, at which point Wells convinced Joe West, Barry's foster father, to allow him to move Barry to S.T.A.R. Labs.
