Red Flag Operative

Alpha Type Synesthete Synesthete

Purlec is an Alpha and Red Flag operative working along side Milos Kosar. Perlich's abilities are not well known, but is assumed to be some form of Synesthete. In the episode Rosetta the hair on his arm stands on end when he is being followed by Rosen's Alphas. This suggests he has a heightened "sixth sense" or "danger sense".



There is no information on Perlich's background. He appears to be more gentle and passive than his partner. He may also be suffering with moral issues, and is uncomfortable with what he is doing, since he was very agitated while alone in the truck.

Season 1[]


Back at the office, Bill analyzes Gary and Anna's translations and realizes Kosar plans to blow up a fuel truck. They find the truck but discover that Anna has led them on a wild goose chase. Bill and Hicks try to catch Kosar again and are successful, but not before Kosar blows up a wing of a pharmaceutical company. It turns out that Red Flag targeted the company because of their plans to manufacture drugs designed to prevent Alphas from being born.

He was killed in the explosion caused by the detonation of the bomb.


Purlec's Alpha ability is never confirmed but it is shown to be a kind of "danger sense" alerting him to the presence of a nearby threat as seen when the alpha swat team was closing in on Purlec at the Red Flag safe house and his hair stood up on end. He then alerted Milos Kosar who caused a black out allowing them to escape. 

Physical Appearance[]

  • Overcooks the scrambled eggs he made for Milos, suggesting he is a bad cook.
