The episode is over, can't we add the info about him? Jason Garrick 22:32, 24 September 2007 (EDT)

  • Sure. :) (Admin 22:35, 24 September 2007 (EDT))
  • Oh lol. I thought someone deleted stuff. nvm. Jason Garrick 22:39, 24 September 2007 (EDT)
    • I did by mistake. I meant to revert a single change and accidentally took out a good one in the process as well, but I restored that. (Admin 22:40, 24 September 2007 (EDT))

Age

Where did we get that his age is 18? -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 16:41, 25 September 2007 (EDT)

  • I believe that was from a casting sheet back in May. But, yeah, they haven't stated his age in any canon source, so we should probably leave it blank for now. Conduit 16:56, 25 September 2007 (EDT)

Theory alert!

Don't take this seriously. West can fly? Nathan can fly! Maybe Nathan had ANOTHER kid with ANOTHER person, and it was West, who inherited Nathan's ability. People DID wanna see Claire hook up with Peter, who turned out to be her uncle. Some even still wanted it to happen after that. I'm sure they wouldn't mind the brother. XD--Riddler 17:51, 25 September 2007 (EDT)

  • People do want to see West die, not make out with Claire. We've seen enough of that already. Oh, and there's not even a single piece of evidence that same power = blood connection. Actually, there are numerous cases where the offsprings have totally different powers than parents. I'm not saying that your theory is wrong, just that it is based on wrong fact (namely: coincidence). --Looky 18:08, 21 October 2007 (EDT)

Power

Why use the adjective "self-propelled"? Is this another case of somebody trying to bring in a power name from another wiki-list or comic book or something?--E rowe 18:28, 25 September 2007 (EDT)

Because flight could be propelled by something else. Actually, I doubt that West's flight is self-propelled. The latest graphic novel indicates that West has some sort of connection to the air and his flight could actually be from manipulating it. Just a thought. Kpenguin 00:07, 26 September 2007 (EDT)

  • I tend to agree. I'm not an expert on the powers, but if we are speculating on how he moves, it's probably best to leave it more vague. It's perfectly acceptable to say "West possesses the power of flight"--I'll make the change now. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:12, 26 September 2007 (EDT)

I hope Sylar eats his brain

Seriously, I'm going to stop watcing the show if West doesn't die at some point during this season. He's so !@#*@$#% obnoxious. I just want to smack him in the head whenever he appears. God, why, God, why, is Claire falling for this douche-bag? --Borowki 21:40, 21 October 2007 (EDT)

  • You said it well! I hate him too. I'd rather for him to die, unless of course that theory that he's the one who killed Kaito comes true. Because if it would, West would be actually a brilliantly written character. :) --Looky 18:02, 21 October 2007 (EDT)
    • Oh, come on, cut him some slack.He's just given bad lines. --Hero!(talk)(contribs) 19:12, 21 October 2007 (EDT)
  • Come to think of it, maybe Sylar has already eaten his brain. The power of controlling air allows him to use that as a substitute. --Borowki 13:03, 23 October 2007 (EDT)
    • Methinks the fanboys doth protest too much. You say "West is so annoying", but I hear "Why is Claire with West and not with me?" ;) --Hardvice (talk) 13:14, 23 October 2007 (EDT)
      • Lol. I'm actually more into Elle, xD --Looky 20:40, 23 October 2007 (EDT)
        • I don't want Claire with anyone since NOAH TOLD HER NOT TO. She's been such a greedy brat this season, from whining to her dad about not wanting to hide to FLYING AROUND with a guy who's not only easy to spot (no matter what he said about people not looking up), but his lines are just disgusting. "I know you can heal, Claire... but I never want to see you hurt." UGH, I literally gagged when he said that. x| --AvadaNella 20:25, 26 October 2007 (EDT)
  • Plus Sylar will be able to fly, which means there might be a Peter vs Sylar round in the air, or even Peter/Nathan tag-teaming him, with Parkman on the ground reading their minds and Claire cutting herself because West got killed, and Monica jumping rope some more with Micah turning TVs on, and Maya and Alajandro stuck in a kill everyone/heal everyone loop, and Jessica slapping people about whilst Niki apoligises in mirror world. Elle will probably be their as well. Most of this was stupid but the air fight sounds cool. --SomeoneImportant 20:45, 26 October 2007 (EDT)

Article Name ?

As reported on another talk page by Ryan Gibson Stewart, Nick D'Agosto stated in an interview that his character's name is West Rosen. Since we don't have any other source for the character's surname, should we move this article to West Rosen as per the decision that was taken for Elisa Thayer, for exemple ? --LeoChris 19:31, 1 November 2007 (EDT)

  • In this case, I'd rather wait, since "West Rosen" is also the name of the person for whom he was named. It's possible Nick merely misspoke, or assumed he was named "Rosen" after the nephew as well as "West". Since it's far more likely that his last name matters than other cases where we've used secondary sources (Maury's first name, for example), I'd leave it for now. He's a big enough character that I have to think that if they wanted us to know his last name, we'd know it.--Hardvice (talk) 19:35, 1 November 2007 (EDT)
    • Agree. He said it in such an offhand manner that I immediately thought, "He's saying Tim Kring's nephew's name, not his character's name." It's hard to tell. If we see it somewhere else, we can reconsider it. But for now, I'd wait to see what's said. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 19:46, 1 November 2007 (EDT)

Not as Bad Now

Anyone who sides with Noah is a-okay in my book. I could've done without his 9th-grade play delivery of "Mr. Bennet, what are you doing?" when Noah had the gun pointed at Mohinder, but bygones are bygones... for now. >_> --AnotherNella 06:53, 21 November 2007 (EST)

Will West be a villain?

Sorry if someone has already talked about this and I'm just being a broken record, will West become a bad guy, I mean he expresses very sociopathic points of view, and Claire leaving him may have pushed him off the edge. -- Horrorman 16:37, 16 December 2007 (EST)

  • I haven't heard anything of the sort. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 16:51, 16 December 2007 (EST)
    • Have you heard anything that has denied this? Perhaps he will be this tragic character? -- Horrorman 11:15, 17 December 2007 (EST)
  • I really would like Sylar to get him. I don't see many West fans out there and a flying Sylar would be cool. Plus as I mentioned up there a Peter vs Sylar round in the air would be amazing. --SomeoneImportant 11:26, 17 December 2007 (EST)
    • Yea I hear people really do hate him. So mostly likely he will die and have his brain eaten (speculation). -- Horrorman 12:22, 17 December 2007 (EST)

Trivia

Should we really list that trivia about West originally being written as Bob's son? The original source was some Myspace blog. Not a very reliable source. Conduit 12:59, 16 January 2008 (EST)

  • If you have a source other than "some Myspace blog", I'd like to take a look at it. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 19:46, 16 January 2008 (EST)
    • I think I remember reading that in the magazine. --Hero!(talk)(contribs) 19:49, 16 January 2008 (EST)
      • I don't know where they got it, but you can read it here in: What was supposed to happen In Volume 2. -Lөvөl 03:02, 17 January 2008 (EST)
        • Thanks for the link. I'm not sure how much value I would put in a fansite claiming a storyline was supposed to happen but didn't, when the site doesn't cite any sources, links, articles, creator quotes, or even the old standby "inside sources say...". If that's the only source, I certainly don't think it needs to go on this page. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 06:37, 17 January 2008 (EST)

Debate Club

It's probably worth noting that Nick D'Agosto played a champion debater in 'Rocket Science' and his character is listed here as being in the debate club. It seems likely, though I have no proof whatsoever, that this was a deliberate character trait in honour of his previous work.

Future

All the West haters out there (and aren't there alot of em) should be able to take some small consoliation in the fact that in the exposed future he most likely dies when Gabriel nuked Costa Verde. D Toccs 06:52, 23 December 2008 (EST)

i like west Gabriel Bishop 10:52, 17 January 2009 (EST) Gabriel Bishop

Where is he?

  • West still lives in Costa Verde right? --NiveKJ13 (talk2me) 21:59, 20 February 2009 (EST)
    • As far as we know, yes, but won't be seeing him for the rest of the volume. Intuitive Empath - Talk - Contributions 22:21, 20 February 2009 (EST)
      • Well, he probably is at Coasta Verde High, but since Claire got her GED she won't be going back there any time soon, meaning that we won't see him any time soon...unless he was on that plane, or is the mysterious Rebel, and does a fly-by for a quick brunch and cathces Claire with Alex....ohh that'll be good, shy water breather verses a flying ex-boyfriend...that screams battle of the ages--Anthony Gooch 01:03, 21 February 2009 (EST)

Season Two summary page

should west have a season two summary page?

Couple of timeline questions?

When was West kidnapped. I remember claire saying that it was when he was twelve(?) but i'm not sure if she was correct. That would make it about four or five years prior to season 2. Well, in Company man it was 3 years ago when claire helped pick HRG's glasses, which would mean that west would have seen him wear the glasses before he needed them. Can anyone remember when he was abducted to see if it fits? --mc_hammark 12:17, 24 August 2009 (EDT)

  • Check out at the beggining of Graphic Novel:Special for the date. This describes when it is I think, but mabey not. PS-this might not be the graphic novel name i am thinking of! lol! I think it is but it might not be! --Iheartheroes 16:15, 24 August 2009 (EDT)
  • The date of the bag and tag in St. Louis is not known. Claire said Noah "abducted West...when he was, like, twelve" (Cautionary Tales). That's not really an exact age, but it gives us a good idea that it was sometime during junior high, which has already been confirmed (Special). Junior high is usually grade 6, 7, or 8. The other thing we know about the abduction is that Mr. Bennet was already wearing glasses at the time (Kindred), so it had to take place sometime between 2003 and October 2006. The date is unknown. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:09, 24 August 2009 (EDT)

Let It Bleed

I love how they brought him back and talked about him. But I didn't realize that they wouldn't even show Peter meeting him, even though he did! ~~IHHTalk 22:29, 4 January 2010 (EST)

  • West actually came back?! Or they just talked about him? I really need to see these episodes! GAH, either way, I'm excited!! haha I've always hated how everyone in the Heroes world completely forgot that season two happened, so any little reference to it makes me happy XD --Skullman1392 23:14, 4 January 2010 (EST)
    • He was just mentioned throughtout the whole episode, but it sounded like we were actually goign to see him, and then we didn't. ~~IHHTalk 23:21, 4 January 2010 (EST)
      • Dang. Oh well, a mention is good. And, who knows, maybe he will show up again. I'll keep my fingers crossed haha --Skullman1392 23:57, 4 January 2010 (EST)
