Bartholomew 'Barry' Henry Allen is the only son (cough) of Henry and Nora Allen. Barry's life hasn't always been sunshine and rainbows, but rather filled with tragedy and sorrow. When he was a young boy, his mother was murdered and his father was framed for it, leaving young Barry to be orphaned at a very young age.

Living life as best he could and visiting his father in prison every chance he got, he was inspired by that case to become a detective (or try to), but he ended up settling to be a forensic scientist. Though even as a forensic scientist, he looked for any evidence in his fathers case that would prove his father to be as innocent as Barry always believed him to be…but when he could never find anything each time, Barry started to become only lightly depressed.

But a strange and viscious thunderstorm happened over his lab one day, and Barry opened one of the windows to get a better look…but the instant he did so? Lightning blasted through every barrier and struck Barry into a comatose.

Eventually awakening with incredible superhuman speed. Inspired to be a hero by the rise of other heroes, Barry Allen became the Flash. The Fastest Man Alive.

Years after the fact, Barry is still trying to get his father out of prison while also saving the world when he can. Sure he's had a few stumbles and missteps (cough cough Flashpoint cough cough) but he does his absolute best every day to do the right thing and give hope where there is none.

Character Details

Ask anyone who has ever met Barry Allen: He's likely the most honest, kindest, compassionate person they've ever met. To the point where it's stupid. Often carrying an incredibly optimistic and joking manner almost everywhere he goes, it's almost impossible to break Barry's spirit. He always sees the brighter side of things, and even when he's down, he'll always find a way to light that hope alive again.

He always believes that no matter what happens, there will be a sunrise, even if the sun has to set first.
