Wade West is one of Jack's friends. He was originally a bully at Michael Vey's school, but later becomes a member of the Electroclan. Michael calls on him and Jack to take him to the academy where he thinks his mother is being held captive. Wade is captured and becomes a GP, one of Hatch's "guinea pigs." Michael is then tested by Hatch to kill Wade, but refuses. Wade escapes the academy with the rest of the Electroclan.
