“What the hell did you people do to us?”
Olivia’s a Cortexiphan kid, she was experimented on as a child in ways she is barely beginning to remember. All the Cortexiphan children so far have exhibited superhuman abilities and talents, scientifically-extreme superpowers. Essentially, she’s has the origin story of a comic-book superhero, wrapped up in a stoic, unyielding, streamlined FBI agent who is slowly beginning to unwrap those layers and gain the powers locked in her memory.
Meanwhile, Peter’s story is all fairytale. Stolen away on a snow-blown night by a man who is his father, but also not, a man who’s a boy genius, a prodigy, who travels the world having adventures, building motorcycles from scratch and conning warlords. He’s Peter Pan, growing up because he was stolen away from the world in which he never did. He was changeling child, who had a madman for a father and now he’s a renaissance man, still operating under all the pretenses of his second world.
So you’ve got the superhero and the fairytale, working together in a secret lab to save the world
