Charlotte Edit

It is unknown what the extent of their relationship is but they are often seen together careing for the orphaned children of Skitters territory.


Forrest is a tall man whose burly physique and thick black beard serve to give him a menacing presence which he shows off by wearing tight shirts. This effect is somewhat mollified by the thick framed glasses he wears.[2][3]

His appearance drew attention.[4]



Saw Hookwolf attack a store and injure civilians.[5]

Stayed in Brockton Bay instead of evacuating like some others.


When the survivors of Shatterbird's song were being attacked, Forrest stepped up and played a key role in helping Skitter get Mannequin off balance.[3]

  1. Forrest – Skitter’s current second in command. Burly and menacing with a thick black beard, he wears thick framed glasses and tight shirts. Played a role in both stopping Mannequin and helping out in Skitter’s territory afterward. - Cast (in depth)
  2. Forrest, by contrast, was almost bemused. He leaned over the kitchen counter. He had a barrel chest, a burly build, a natural glower, a thick black beard and coarse, unkempt hair. He might have looked savage if it weren’t for the tight-fitting striped polo shirt and the nerdish thick-framed glasses. It hadn’t been that long ago that he’d helped sway the outcome of my fight against Mannequin, putting his life on the line to help take down a monster that even some top-tier capes had been scared of. - Excerpt from Chrysalis 20.1
  3. 3.0 3.1 Someone appeared behind me, and his hands gripped the chain, just a bit behind my own. He added his strength to mine, and Mannequin’s body was dragged another two or three feet back.

    “Where?” he asked. It was a burly bystander with a thick black beard, thick rimmed glasses and a red and black striped t-shirt. One of my people.

    I turned and let go to point. There was a metal frame that had once stood around some equipment. Now it stood empty, just a connection of metal bars.

    “Stand back,” he said. I let go and backed off. Without me in the way, the bystander was able to haul Mannequin another four or five feet towards the frame. Another haul, and they were close enough to the frame. - Excerpt from Plague 12.7

  5. 5.0 5.1 “I was in the neighborhood when Hookwolf’s group attacked some guy’s store, and then nothing affecting me personally for years, until Leviathan attacked. I was there when Mannequin attacked the Boardwalk.”
    “I remember.”
    I could remember Forrest grabbing the concrete block, hammering at Mannequin’s head. He’d cracked the casing, even, playing a pivotal role in Mannequin giving up. - Excerpt from Cockroaches 28.6
  6. There was a sound, a heavy impact followed by the noise of ringing metal. Mannequin stopped and whirled on the spot, striding back the way he’d come.

    The sound came again. I chased, trying not to limp, knowing there was little I could do to stop the monster. I crossed half the factory floor before I saw what had earned Mannequin’s attention.

    The man who’d helped me with Mannequin had the concrete block in his hand, and for the third time, be brought it down on Mannequin’s head. The head came free of the chain and fell to the ground, rolling briefly.

    The man hefted the cinder block again, saw Mannequin approaching, and changed his mind. He dropped the block onto the head and then ran. - Excerpt from Plague 12.7
