Wallace Rudolph West/Kid FlashNickname:
GreenUnusual Features: Age:
Wally likes most sexual activities and is very 'go with the flow' when it comes to sexual tastes. He often simply adapts to his partner's likes/dislikes. Offs:
Wally doesn't enjoy causing others real misery or sadness, he isn't adverse to being rough or causing small to moderate amounts of pain but this only occurs if he is sure it is something his partner wants and will enjoy. Place of Birth:

As a result of his nature, and the boredom that can arise from living in a world that seems to be moving in slow motion Wally has a hard time staying in one place for too long. As such Wally is an on and off member of the Titans, more often than not he simply plays it solo or with a partner though he has recently been considering joining the team on a more permanent basis.Hobbies:
Wally enjoys flirting, racing others with super speed, eating, playing board games, and building models(given the extremely small amount of time it takes him to build them)Powers or abilities:Superspeed
: Wally's most obvious power is his ability to move at superhuman speeds, however this ability is not limited to movingg. Every aspect of his existence from his metabolism to his mind is in a constant state of superspeed.Enhanced strength
: Wally is nowhere near as strong as heroes who's primary ability is strength but he is still considerably stronger than the average human. It is highly likely that this ability is simply an offshoot of his superspeed.Above-average endurance
: Wally can take quite a bit of punishment and keep on going. He isn't anywhere near invulnerable but it takes more than a good kick in the shins to put him down for good. Supercharged brain activity
As mentioned above Wally's mind works at the same super fast speed that the rest of him does. This allows him to think and process what his body senses at a much faster rate than should be possible Limitations: Super-Metabolism
Wally's body metabolizes food at a super fast rate and as such he needs constant 're-fueling' in order to keep up his strength especially after using his powers for any amount of time longer than a few moments.Over-tapping of Speedforce
It is possible for Wally to tap too far into the Speedforce, the source of his power, he doesn't know exactly what would happen to him if he did but odds are it wouldn't be very good. To make maters worse he has no real way of feeling when he is tapping too far into the Speedforce. As such he has to constantly limit himself for fear of what might happen if he didn't.Special skills:Experienced hand-to-hand combatant
Though not an expert in hand to hand combat Wally has a very solid amount of experience in hand-to-hand combat his fighting style tends to revolve around using his superspeed to avoid an enemy's attack and then counter said attack well before his target even realizes that the attack missed. Phasing
Wally can vibrate his molecules at a rate fast enough to allow him to phase slightly out of touch with reality, this has the effect of allowing him to pass through solid objects. This skill is extremely taxing on his body and is something he only does when absolutely necessary. Friction
Wally can vibrate his body fast enough to create massive levels of friction with anything he touchesTornado formation
Wally can move fast enough to create micro tornadoes either by using his arms or by simply running in circles.Resonance
Theoretically Wally could vibrate his body at the exact same frequency as any solid object thus causing it to shatter. He has never done this before and has so far chosen not to try it for fear of just how much damage it might do, though lately he has found himself becoming more and more curious about it. Personality:
Wally's personality is shaped by two defining aspects. The first being the person he was, and to some extent still is, before the accident that granted him his powers. And the second is the reality of the super human he now is and the side effects of his powers.
This means that while Wally is a very fun, jocular person. Who enjoys a good joke no mater who tells it, possess a positive and optimistic world view that never seems to fade, and at first glance seems to simply be a young man without a care in the world or a single real worry.
He is also a very lonely young man below the surface. This is because of the fact that he now perceives the world at an astoundingly fast rate causing him to feel as if he is living in a world moving in slow motion while he is moving at fast forward. Events that are simply time consuming to others, such as waiting in line, seem to take ages to Wally. In fact the only times that things seem to move at a rate nearing fast enough for him is when an emergency is taking place with things 'changing in an instant' or when he finds himself interacting with a person he is attracted to and can focus his entire attention on them. Very few if any people other than the members of his family who share his condition know of this aspect of his powers and it is one of the few subjects he doesn't openly discuss with others.History:
Wally West was a normal child for most of his life until one night he was caught in a chemical explosion caused by a lightning strike. The electricity that infused with the potentially dangerous mix of chemicals radically altered Wally's body, giving him the ability to move and think at superhuman speeds similar to the other 'Flashes'.
He then became the young sidekick of The Flash and took on the title of Kid Flash in honor of his mentor. He spent the next few years fighting alongside The Flash and learning from him until he finally left mentor to become independent hero and make a name for himself.
Since that time he has come into contact with the Teen Titans several times. Always trying to help them in any way he can. He was eventually granted membership in the group but has at best been an 'on and off' member. It is only now that he seems truly interested in becoming a permanent member of the Teen Titans.
