Walter Perkins was a postdoctoral researcher at MIT. His first dissertation was on the subject of Stem Cell Replication, an advanced form of cloning by which a biological life form could be replicated cell-by-cell. During his time at MIT, he met Susan Perkins. After she graduated, they got married. He wanted a family, but Susan wanted to wait. They planned their dream house together, and soon a recruiter arrived from Global Dynamics to offer Walter a job. Susan wanted to stay, but Walter wanted to go, so they seperated.
Walter's career at Global Dynamics consisted mostly of work in the quantum physics, including building his tachyon accelerator. As his deadline approached, he became desperate to make his invention work. He was approached by The Consortium who claimed they could help him. With the help of "them", a Sentex chip stolen from Section 5 was used in his accelerator, enabling it to function before the deadline. Unfortunately, a test resulted in a tachyon collision that started to destroy time. In an attempt to reverse the effect, Walter was lost and presumed killed. ("Pilot")
Recovery and Arrest Edit
After Walter's funeral, he spent several days trying to contact various people in Eureka from the time stream he was trapped inside of. This caused a variety of electrical issues around Eureka, and reports of ghost sightings. It was soon discovered that the "ghost" was Walter, and he was able to be brought back into temporal sync with the rest of the universe. Unfortunately, he was trapped in the body of a 16 year old and placed under house arrest for the theft of Section 5 technology.
