Christopher Wey was the husband of Madeleine Wey, the father of Julia Wey, and the older brother of Ronnie Wey. He lived with his family at 1356 Primrose Lane in White Plains, New York, and worked as a construction foreman until he suffered a head injury in an attack during which his wife and daughter were killed, and fell into a coma.
After the nuclear destruction of Washington, D.C., he woke, and discovered that he had acquired touch-activated psychic abilities. Traveling to Washington, D.C., he found the head of a cane, through which he experienced joint visions with fellow psychic Johnny Smith.
Through these mutual visions, he implored Smith to save his wife and daughter, which Smith accomplished, though Christopher himself was still rendered comatose.
