COLIN MALLORY Never before has a character been so anticipated as Colin Mallory. Colin has yet to join the other sliders--Quinn Mallory, Rembrandt Brown, and Maggie Beckett--but has surpassed Maggie in popularity. But who is Colin? What's his story? Colin Mallory is Quinn's older brother (although Charlie is younger in real life). Born to sliding parents, the brothers Mallory were sent to foster parents on different earths to save them from the Kromaggs. While Quinn was sent to a world most of us could consider "our home world," Colin was sent to an Amish world. On this Amish world, who would have been Quinn's double died in infancy. (Imagine Colin's surprise when he met Quinn!) Colin himself is a sweet, kind, funny, and good natured man with a love of science but lack of technology. He may hold the key to finding Quinn's homeworld.
