- My name is Nora West-Allen, and I'm the fastest woman alive. When I was a child, my father disappeared in something impossible. Then I grew up and became the impossible. Now I'm trying to live up to the legacy he created so that one day, I'll stop him from ever disappearing. I'm XS. How schway is that?

Nora West-Allen, also known as XS, was the daughter of Barry Allen and Iris West-Allen, who inherited her father's Speed Force abilities and was given her mother's trademark jacket from her temporary time as a speedster.
In the year 2049, Nora was manipulated into traveling back to the year 2017 by Eobard Thawne. After she arrived, she began meeting various members of Team Flash. She attended her parents' wedding as a caterer serving sparkling water, and encouraged her father to do good marrying Iris. She later appeared to Ralph Dibny and Cisco Ramon, paying for their drinks. Cisco commented on her Oregon Trail shirt, and Nora began rambling about the science behind destiny. After the two left, she began writing symbols in her notebook, the same symbols Barry wrote when he emerged from the Speed Force. Later, Harry and Caitlin had gone to CC Jitters, and while discussing Caitlin somehow remembering her time as Killer Frost, Nora spilled her "Killer Frost" drink on them. Nora apologized and rushed to help clean up, and Nora began saying how she came there to meet some people for the first time. Harry quickly rushed to leave, and Caitlin commented that she hoped Nora met with whoever she wanted to meet with, and Nora replied that she did, implying she came there to meet them. Much later, Nora appeared at Cecille's baby shower, delivering a diaper bag, saying she believed her child will be born in 21 days, but quickly commented that it was just a guess. Nora began saying how time was precious and we should make what we have of it, but when Iris approached, Cecille turned around and she is gone. Down the hallway, Nora looked around to make sure no one saw her, and used her super-speed to run off. Later, when The Thinker's satellites were falling down to Central City, Barry gone to punch the satellite, but at this point in time, Nora went back to right before he started running to stop the satellite, and joined in, helping her father destroy the satellite with a sonic punch. Soon after, Nora rushed into Joe's home and all the members of Team Flash begin realizing they've seen her before. Barry and Iris commented on Nora's jacket, and Nora replies that she was their daughter from the future, and she made a big mistake.
