|“||Your greatest strength isn't some meta ability. Cecile, it's your heart, and your dedication to the people that you love. That's a real virtue.||”|
— Chester P. Runk to Cecile Horton[src]
Cecile Horton, Esq. is a former counsellor and the district attorney of Central City. Horton is also the girlfriend of Joe West and the mother of Joanie and Jenna West.

Horton eventually advanced in her superhuman abilities, rising to be a hero of Central City, Virtue.

Cecile Horton, Metahuman Attorney[edit source]
Black Hole[edit source]
In 2020, Horton quit her job as an attorney and became a Metahuman attorney. Later, she worked with Central City Citizen and helped them track down Black Hole. However, she was attacked as well due to her close relationship with Iris West-Allen. Luckily, she was able to sense the assassin's emotions and dodged the attack with the others.
The Exorcism of Nash Wells[edit source]
After Eobard Thawne "possessed" Nash Wells, they attacked Cisco Ramon but was later defeated by Horton with a taser.
Soon, they brought Nash back to S.T.A.R. Labs and locked him in the Pipeline until Cisco called Horton back for an "exorcism". During the exorcism, Horton acted as a Thawne detector and allows Cisco to know when Thawne is free from Nash. However, Cisco's PTD did not work, and Barry suggested using the MAD 2.0 to enter Nash's mind. Horton used her powers to bring them into Nash's mind as well as bringing them back out.
Reflections and Lies[edit source]
Identifying "Iris"[edit source]
Horton visited Barry after Iris kicked him out of their apartment. Horton listened to Barry's thought on fake Iris and believed. However, Iris got away with the test and Barry was locked in the pipeline. Horton was upset at Barry but realize he is the only one that can bring Iris and released him from the pipeline.
After West's near-death experience caused by Rag Doll, Rag Doll was sent to attack Cecile Horton. Horton was then held hostage on a chair tied with C-4 explosives and was rescued by The Flash while West West prevents the explosion.
Exploring her Powers[edit source]
Four weeks after the showdown between Team Flash and Eva McCulloch, Horton and West worked together on gathering information from Rosa Dillon on Black Hole. Rosa then used her own powers against Horton's empathy, distracting her. Horton then returned minutes later, sharing her negative emotions with Rosa and overwhelming Rosa, allowing Rosa to tell her the information.
Later, Horton attended the opening of the Hall of the Fallen Allies in S.T.A.R. Labs.
