Best Friend:

  • After obtaining his Skateboard, Simon began frequenting the local Skate Park when he stayed with his grandparents.

Instead he befriended a slightly younger child named Dexter (Often called “Dex” or “D” for short) who had been dragged there by his sister (Elise) of whom was the same age as Simon. After awhile they sparked a friendship out of a mutual hatred for Dex’s sister, Elise.

  • Elise – His best friend Dex’s older sister.
  • Seth – Simon’s work colleague and occasional friend

After discovering the abilities that Simon possesses he wishes to utilize them to advance his research, whether Simon cooperates or not.
