First Seen:  A New Day In The Old Town
Last Seen:  Momentum Deferred
Status:  Alive
Remarks:  Has a thing for Walter

Rebecca Kibner is a former test subject of Walter who has the ability to glimpse the parallel universe.


  • She willingly subjected herself to hallucinogenics, provided by Walter in A New Day In The Old Town, allowing her to see another dimension. She was able to describe soldiers who could shape-shift. After the experiments, this ability remained dormant.
  • Walter and Peter approached her in Momentum Deferred, many years after her first encounter with Walter, asking if she would be willing to undergo the same experiment in order to identify a shape-shifter. Walter and Rebecca shared a kiss at the doorstep of Kibner's house.


"At first, I assumed it was all just a figment of my imagination and the L.S.D., of course. But after a while, it wasn't just during the experiments. I would see their faces in front of me. They seemed to have, I don't know, a certain glow about them... took me a year or two to really understand it. But I realized that... I was recognizing people that didn't belong. You know, like that children's song -- 'one of these things is not like the others'." - to the Bishops (about the drug-induced visions Walters testing provided her with)

2"(on decades old video) ... He is a soldier. From somewhere else. He's.. he's from a place that looks like this, but it's not here. Oh, he's... he's from another universe, man. Oh, I can see him." - to Walter (explaining her drug-induced visions during one of his science explorations)
