Barry Allen / The Flash, played by Grant Gustin

As a young boy, Barry insisted on coming to the aid of his classmates, which often got him beat up by bullies. But his life truly changed when one night his mother was killed by a strange yellow-and-red blur. Barry's father Henry was tried and convicted of the murder, and Central City police detective Joe West took Barry in as his son.

Inspired by Henry's medical skills and Joe's dedication to law and order, Barry studied to become a forensic assistant and is remarkably gifted. However, he also began researching cases of the strange and unexplained hoping to find an answer to how his mother died.
