Anyone Up For a Root Beer Float?
A Multi-Agency task force under the umbrella of the Department of Homeland Security, tasked with the investigation of science related crimes that are believed to be a part of what is known as "The Pattern."
The name given to a series of incidents relating to cutting edge science. As Agent Broyles describes it, "It is as if someone out there is experimenting, only the whole world is a lab." Agent Olivia Dunham has recently discovered a radial and concentric pattern within the Pattern.
Agent Olivia Dunham
Special Agent to the FBI, Olivia leads the Science Team whose purpose is to investigate and, if possible, reverse engineer the science used under Pattern related incidents. As a child, she was part of a series of drug trials conducted by Massive Dynamic founder William Bell and Doctor Walter Bishop.
A highschool dropout and former conman, Peter Bishop was brought in to Fringe Division as a consultant when they needed Doctor Walter Bishop released from St. Claire's. Despite being a dropout, he knows a great deal about "Fringe Science," explaining it as "reading." Whatever it was, it was good - he had taught college level chemistry for a while before they found out he faked his degree.
Doctor Walter Bishop
The Science Team's own mad scientist - literally, as until brought in to be a consultant for Fringe Division, he had been a patient at Saint Claire's Medical Hospital. Walter has forgotten more science than most of the cast knows, and more often then not, Pattern incidents can be connected with research he had done before his tenure at St. Claire's.
A group of people(?) who have lost contact with their humanity, and exist only to observe the Pattern, and possibly Doctor Walter Bishop.
With pathogens that can do anything from cause metamorphosis to mind-control, chemicals that cause the mind to make a nightmare real, thieves that can walk through walls, and computer virus's that can hack people's minds, Fringe is a show where the line between normal and paranormal is blurred.
Who else here watches it?
