Dan Smithson was an empath, which means he had the ability to perceive the emotional state of others on a pyschic level. Smithson's talents were called into use in 1995, when a team of specialists headed up by Doctor Xavier Fitch were brought together to track down a renegade alien/human hybrid dubbed Sil. Smithson's empathic abilities not only kept the group trained on Sil's motives and whereabouts, but were also key in gathering information about her intended targets.
