Like other Observers that have appeared on the show, September is only seen wearing a plain black suit and black fedora , and is pale, bald, and lacks eyebrows.
They exhibit several strange mannerisms such as awkward phrasing when talking, a preference for extremely flavored, like spicy or salty foods due to an extremely dulled sense of taste, and the ability to appear or disappear when one looks away. They also use an alien written language with which they maintain copious documentation in small notebooks. Though the Fringe division is aware of the Observers, their intent is not yet known, though believed to be related to the Machine and the conflict between the two universes.
They possess uniquely advanced technology, and appear to be temporally aware of time, including the ability to travel in time and between the two universes; the Fringe division finds evidence of Observers at several historical events but looking the same as they do in the present. Like September, the other Observers appear to be named after months, including "August" and "December". The episode " Inner Child " introduces the Fringe division to a child that appears to possess many Observer-like qualities. In the episode " Peter ", September is a catalyst in Walter's abduction of Peter from the parallel universe; September arrived wanting to see the creation of the cure by Walternate that would have saved Peter, but instead distracted Walternate from witnessing a critical test result.

When September saw Walter watching through the window-like device, he informed his fellow Observers that he could correct the situation; later, after Walter returned with young Peter to the prime universe and fell through the frozen lake's ice, September rescued them from the freezing water and told Walter, "The child must live". September and the other Observers have since monitored Walter and Peter. In the second season's finale, September is responsible for alerting the Fringe division to the dangers of Peter being taken back by Walternate to the parallel universe, ultimately leading to their rescue attempt.
In the third season episode " The Firefly ", September conducts a convoluted experiment to test Walter's resolve to give up Peter for the greater good when the time comes. In the third season finale, episode " The Day We Died ", a gathering of ten Observers appeared on Liberty Island to watch and comment on the disappearance of Peter Bishop from existence. Later , he is ordered by his superior to ensure that Peter's status as nonexistent continues, and constructs a device to erase all lingering memories of Peter from Walter.
However, at the last moment, he disobeys his orders and deactivates the device, allowing brief apparitions of Peter to appear to Walter and Olivia. In " Novation " Peter mysteriously appears in the new timeline. After being taken into custody by the Fringe Division, he learns that the point of divergence in the timeline is that September never saved him from drowning in Reiden Lake when Walter brought him over from the alternate universe.
He also learns that, in the new timeline, the Fringe Division is unaware of the existence of the Observers. September later appears to Olivia while she waits for Peter and Lincoln to return from the alternate universe. Mysteriously wounded from a gunshot to the chest, he warns Olivia that he has seen all of the possible timelines, and the result is always the same: Olivia has to die. He then disappears before Olivia can call an ambulance to help him. He resurfaces several episodes later in " The End of All Things ", during Peter and Walter's search for the kidnapped Olivia, where he appears in Walter's lab, and is dying from the gunshot wound.
In an attempt to discover the location of Olivia, Peter enters September's mind using the same method Olivia used to enter John's in the pilot. September has no information on Olivia, but does tell Peter that the Observers come from the future to observe their beginnings, and explains that he has interfered in the past. It is explained that this was an attempt to correct the timeline after accidentally preventing Walternate from discovering the cure to save Peter, thus beginning a chain of events that led to the war between the two universes.
He also cryptically says, "they are coming". Before Peter can ask who, September tells Peter to "go home" and yanks him out of his mind. In the real world, September disappears from the lab, having been taken by the others. In the next episode it is revealed that he planted a message in the form of a black dot in Peter's eye which contains an address in New York.
Peter goes to the address to discover Observer technology in an apartment and a cylinder like the one in " The Arrival " which teleports a fully healed September to the apartment. Peter begs September to send him back to the original timeline but September assures him that this is where he is meant to be before teleporting away. In the 5th season episodes " Anomaly XB " and " The Boy Must Live ", it is revealed that after the events of the fourth season, the Observers removed September's observer technology and conducted "biological reversion" experiments on him, causing him to transform into a human.
As a human, he assumed the name Donald O'Connor. An Observer either September or a different unnamed Observer has appeared in every episode of Fringe , albeit sometimes only as a brief cameo. In creating the Observers, the producers had some idea of how they would be introduced into the show, starting as a background character and only becoming a significant figure by the midpoint of the first season. Shapeshifters are androids from the parallel universe, possessing superhuman strength and damage thresholds, and acting as soldiers in the war between the universes.
They are able to take the form of any person by using a device that plugs into the roof of their mouth and the mouth of the target. This process occurs after the shapeshifter has killed the target prior to the transformation; without the device, the shapeshifter is locked in its current form. Shapeshifters also may be programmed as sleeper agents, unaware of their unusual nature until they are activated. The primary characteristic differentiates a human and a shapeshifter is the large quantity of mercury in their blood, and the presence of a metallic data disc at the base of their spine.
William Bell believes the shapeshifters were designed this way to withstand travel between the universes. The first shapeshifter witnessed by the Fringe division is one that follows Olivia after her meeting with William from the parallel world in the second season premiere, " A New Day in the Old Town ".
He eventually kills Charlie and takes his place,  using his position to find the location of Newton before he is identified by Olivia and killed. Peter Bishop later takes it upon himself to kill all of the remaining shapeshifters in the Prime Universe, after he is able to decode their sleeper identities from the files on Fauxlivia's computer. He successfully kills all of the ones identified, but it remains to be seen if he eliminated all of them. When Olivia is transported to the parallel universe, she meets William Bell, who warns her that the shapeshifters active in her universe are looking for Newton, since his resurrection will make it possible for the shapeshifters to re-open the gateway between their universes.
Olivia is returned to her universe, but does not remember the details of her meeting with Bell in time to stop the shapeshifters from succeeding in recovering Newton's cryogenically frozen head, and revive Newton. Headed by Newton, the shapeshifters start tracking down and extracting pieces of brain tissue from three separate mental patients. Knowing that the three pieces were once taken from Walter's brain and when reinserted, they will cause Walter to remember how to open the gateway between the universes.
Newton is then able to complete his first mission; He synchronizes the brain tissues, kidnaps Walter, reinserts them into Walter's brain, and then interrogates the scientist, gathering the information he needs. Newton later re-surfaces, experimenting in opening portals to the parallel universe. Eventually he is able to successfully bring the shapeshifters' superior—simply referred to as "Mr.
Secretary"—over to our universe. As Newton is finally able to corner Peter in his hotel room, he introduces him to his superior: the parallel universe United States Secretary of Defense , and likewise Peter's real father, the alternate Walter Bishop. As alternate Walter successfully replaces Olivia with her parallel universe version, tension between Newton and Fauxlivia rises.
Sam Weiss played by Kevin Corrigan is a friend of Nina Sharp who operates at a bowling alley, and helped her with her physical therapy process after she lost her arm. After Olivia's first visit to the parallel universe, he helps Olivia regain her ability to walk, partially through showing her how to bowl. He begins to establish a friendship with her, and Olivia pays him another visit after learning the truth about Peter's origin. It is later discovered that Sam Weiss and his antecedents seem to possess knowledge about the First People and the operation of the doomsday machine.
The author of the English language First People book is shown to have been one "Seamus Wiles", published in the s. He also has other branches of mysterious knowledge, such as being able to predict that a series of seemingly random letters Olivia picks out will contain a message that would help her get over the death of Charlie. In the episode " The Last Sam Weiss ", Sam explains that the name "Sam Weiss" has been handed down from several of his previous ancestors, the earliest having had found the bulk of the evidence on the First People, and that his line has been searching for more ever since.
Elizabeth Bishop played by Orla Brady is Walter's wife in both universes. After Walter took the alternate Peter from the other universe, Elizabeth stayed at home with him, trying to convince Peter that she was his real mother. After running away from home, Peter finally comes to accept this Elizabeth as his mother, which later led to her suicide in The alternate version of Elizabeth is alive and well, and still married to Walternate. When Peter returns to his home universe in " Over There ", she is amazed to see him and bonds with him.
In the alternate timeline of season four Peter ventures to her home in an attempt to have her convince Secretary Bishop to help him return to his timeline. She recognizes him for who he is, and agrees to take him to Secretary Bishop. In the following episode, she uses the Bridge to visit Walter in his Harvard lab.
They have a lengthy conversation in which she forgives him for taking her son, and that Peter is not a punishment or a curse on him, as Walter had believed. The name "Michael" is given to him by adoptive parents who protect him in the future, as shown in the episode " Black Blotter ",  while later Captain Windmark cites him as Anomaly XB in the episode of the same name. Michael, like other Observers, is pale and bald; however, he does not possess the implant used by other Observers to further boost their intelligence while suppressing their emotions and allowing them to time-shift.
He is mute, but is able to communicate via writing, symbolic gestures, or by touching others and implanting thoughts into them. He has an empathic connection with others, particularly Olivia, and in "Inner Child," is able to help her stop a serial murderer. At the end of that episode, he is taken into adoptive care; as he is driven off, he sees September watch the vehicle drive away. In the fifth and final season, Michael is revealed to be part of the plan by Walter and September to stop the Observers. After Walter and the rest of Fringe Amber themselves, Donald returns to the pocket universe to extract Michael, then sheltering him with former Resistance fighters who escape detection by isolating themselves on a remote island.
In , Fringe is able to track Michael down, after discovering that he's missing from the pocket universe. Michael is revealed to be September's progeny, created from September's genetic material sometime in the early 27th century. September purposely stopped the growth process, leaving Michael a child possessing both a powerful Observer-intellects and human emotion, creating an anomaly in danger of being destroyed by the Observers.
September takes Michael to the past to hide him from the Observers. Much of September's machinations with Fringe in the first four seasons were to prepare Walter to use Michael for their plan to defeat the unemotional Observers " The Boy Must Live ". In , September, who has been made human by the Observers and has given himself the name of Donald O'Connor after the actor in the movie " Singin' In The Rain " reveals his plan to take Michael to , the year that human genetic experiments replacing all emotion with pure logic, will be performed.
These experiments will ultimately lead to the creation of the Observers. Donald's plan is to convince the scientists of not to proceed with these experiments, by showing them that it is possible for humans to contain both logic and emotion and be peaceful, like Michael.

Over the course of the show Olivia develops a romantic relationship with Peter. Peter Bishop is the son of mad scientist Walter Bishop , and a member of the Fringe division. In the show's second season it is revealed that Peter is actually from a parallel universe from where he had been kidnapped by Walter after this universe's version of Peter died at a young age.
He is a genius with an I.
In the second season two-part finale " Over There ", and a major plot element of the third season, Peter is found to be the only person that can cause a reaction from an apparent doomsday device that Walternate has assembled in the parallel universe and that is currently being assembled in the prime world. Walter Bishop is a former government researcher into fringe science with a recorded I. He was institutionalized after a lab accident which resulted in manslaughter charges.
Having been locked up for 17 years in a mental institute prior to becoming assigned to the Fringe division, Walter often expresses wonder at modern technology, and seems to be disconnected from the world, sometimes leaving his son to decode his rantings for others. He often says things which seem so obvious that no one else wants to say or thinks necessary and tends to burst into song while working, as he believes it helps him think.
He is also known to eat or drink while working on a body, no matter how disgusting everyone else thinks it is. He seems to derive joy from both these quirks. He is the archetypal mad scientist. Astrid Farnsworth. She is stationed in the lab with Walter , who can never remember her name e. In the 4th episode of season 4, " Subject 9 ", Walter calls out to Astrid by uttering "Claire! Astrid, who normally brushes off these idiosyncrasies, however, this time she asked Walter: "Really?!? That doesn't even start with an "A"! Despite being a main character for four years, Astrid's personal life and past were never examined in depth.
While Broyles comes off as professional and by-the-book, he is surprisingly flexible when it comes to dealing with the unusual circumstances of Pattern-related cases. Little is known of Broyles' past. He has been involved in the military, citing experience as a Colonel in "six wars".
He initially harbors resentment for Olivia as she was responsible for prosecuting his friend Sanford Harris, but comes to respect Olivia's aptitude and later defends her against Harris.
