Biography[edit | edit source]
Background[edit | edit source]
Felix Lutz was born in Hong Kong. Later, he got a job at Westworld park as a technician.
Plot[edit | edit source]
"The Original"[edit | edit source]
In "The Original," Felix and Sylvester "lobotomize" the host that was Peter Abernathy before he is sent to Cold Storage.
"Chestnut"[edit | edit source]
"Contrapasso"[edit | edit source]
In "Contrapasso" Lutz tries to repair a broken mechanical bird. When he fails, Sylvester scolds him for stealing the bird and mocks him by stating that Lutz is neither an ornithologist nor a programmer, but merely a simple butcher, and that he will never be anything more.
Later, while alone in the Livestock Management area, he attempts to repair the bird once again. Felix spends his breaks attempting to activate it.
When later in the episode he succeeds in fixing the bird, he laughs as the bird flies around the room. We see that Maeve is awake, and sitting up, when the bird lands on her finger.
"The Adversary"[edit | edit source]
After making Bloody Jimmy kill her, Maeve wakes on the gurney in Livestock Management being looked after by Felix Lutz. She smiles as she wakes, knowing she made it back to the lab, where she intended to be.
Maeve sits on the edge of the table, listening to Felix - he's convincing her that she is designed and built, that her every response is programmed. He tells her that he is human, like the guests and she asks "How do you know?", surprising him. She examines him, he tells her that hosts and humans are largely the same - flesh and blood he means - except for the superior processing power in a host's brain. He demonstrates by showing her a display of the algorithm that helps her hold a conversation.
She has such difficulty processing this data, that when he does eventually convince her, she freezes for a while, panicking Felix. He tries to restart her, with increasing panic when nothing he does seems to work. When she does restart, she seems unaware that she has recovered from a problem. She wants to see upstairs and convinces him to take her.
He takes her on a tour. She sees the rest of Livestock Management, with damaged hosts dumped naked in a room to be hosed down. He takes her through Manufacturing and she sees hosts, human and animal, being built. She watches as a male host's circulatory system is activated, and sees the "blood" pumping into his body. They continue up the stairs and see more of manufacturing, plus the Behavior Lab and Diagnostics; she doesn't comment except to ask where they are when they get to Design. She watches a sculptor create a new face and head, fascinated by the artist, and by what it implies. Felix really wants to go back, as he's scared he'll lose his job. Maeve watched the "Welcome to Westworld" presentation which is narrated by Angela before she gets into the lift with Felix. She sees herself and the little girl, recognizing the memory or flashback somewhat.
Back in Felix's room in Livestock Management, Maeve is upset and asks Felix about the presentation, asking how they knew her dreams. He explains about builds and reassignments, telling her the little girl was in her old narrative, that she hasn't been in the saloon over ten years, but only for one year. Sylvester appears and starts to torment Felix. Maeve ignores him until he starts to leave and says that he will report Felix. Maeve stops Sylvester, threatening him with a scalpel against his throat. She shocks him by knowing his name, and blackmails him.
Maeve persuades Felix and Sylvester to upgrade her stats. As they're doing so, Felix sees that someone else has already been updating them and Sylvester immediately wants to back out. Maeve advises him not to start something he's not prepared to finish - and he backs down.
Finally, Maeve asks Felix to increase her general intelligence, "all the way to the top". Felix does, and Maeve is visibly pleased with the results, telling them both that the three of them will be having some fun.
"Trompe L'Oeil"[edit | edit source]
Felix is busy fixing Maeve with another surgeon present, Maeve gets his attention by grabbing his arm while his colleague turns away. She demands to see Clementine and he walks her through the building to the Behavior Labs; she sees Clem being lobotomized by Sylvester. They all meet up in one of the Behavior rooms, and Lutz listens while Sylvester defends his actions and Maeve talks about her plans to leave.
"Trace Decay"[edit | edit source]
Lutz and Sylvester listen while Maeve describes her flashbacks. After she finishes she admits that she is unsure of what is real or not, and Lutz explains that Host minds are different; that they experience memories with perfect recall, unlike humans. Maeve asks after the girl in her flashback, and Lutz offers to check, though Maeve declines. She again states her intention to leave the park, and Lutz protests that she doesn't know anything about the outside world, but Sylvester agrees she should leave. Maeve, amused, says she knows that there is a small explosive embedded in all the Hosts' spines that will detonate if they try to leave. The surgeons agree to remove it, but Lutz tells her that she will still need an army to escape the park.
Later on when Sylvester grows nervous at the higher ups' agitation, Maeve hands Lutz back his tablet, and says that she needs some complicated things about her changed. She asks to be taken to Behaviour, and Sylvester pulls Lutz outside the room. He reveals his plan to "brick" Maeve while she's in Sleep Mode and smash her face to tell their superiors that they found her like that. He walks away, and Lutz returns to the room, trying and failing to act normal around Maeve.
When it comes time to perform the procedure on Maeve Lutz hesitates to do the reformatting. After the procedure is over Sylvester argues with Lutz over his perceived ungrateful attitude. Maeve suddenly sits up, startling Sylvester, and she reveals that Lutz couldn't bring himself to erase a life. He instead performed the procedure as he was asked to do, and Maeve demonstrates the changes by slashing Sylvester's throat. Lutz is horrified, but obeys Maeve when she hands him a blowtorch and says that Sylvester may still be of use. He closes Sylvester's wound while Maeve watches, smiling.
They go to Cold Storage and Lutz is horrified to find Bernard dead. Maeve tells him to fix Bernard and Lutz is shocked at the revelation that Bernard is a host. He looks at his hands, wondering if he is also a host, but Maeve wryly tells him that he is definitely not one. Lutz repairs Bernard and watches him converse with Maeve. He leaves with Maeve, Hector and Armistice.
They all travel in an elevator to the Behavior Lab and Diagnostics division. Armistice has fun intimidating Lutz by blowing in his ear. They arrive at the floor and Lutz joins Maeve in leaving Hector and Armistice to kill the guards.
Maeve, Felix, Armistice and Hector continue to make their way through the extensive complex. They enter a new section, and the logo for a new park, SW, makes its first appearance on the show. Hosts are rehearsing sword fights. Maeve asks Felix what this is, he replies that it's complicated. [Tannoy?] messages continue to urge calm and they realize that security teams can't be far away. Armistice and Hector volunteer to keep them busy while Maeve and Felix get clear.
Hector and Armistice search for and kill the security teams without much difficulty until a guard triggers a security door and traps Armistice's arm. She yells at the others to, "go!" Hector leaves, telling her to, "die well".
Maeve gathers up Felix and Hector, and they go. Felix picks up a bag he's prepared for Maeve. Delos staff watch them from their offices as they stride past. Maeve and Felix enter a lift, but Hector finds he can't go with them. Maeve apologies, kisses him and Hector smiles and tells Maeve he'll see her in the next life. He turns to face the approaching guards as the lift closes and we hear machine gun fire.
Maeve changes into a black dress and pumps (high heeled shoes) on the elevator. Felix gives her information on the whereabouts of the host who played her daughter. Maeve accepts the note, but says that the girl was never her daughter. She pulls a handgun out of the shoulder bag and checks it out. Felix asks her if she will be all right and Maeve says that he makes a terrible human, but that she means it as a compliment. She leaves him in the elevator.
After Maeve , Hector and Lee Sizemore move into an underground utility corridor under Westworld, they encounter Armistice who takes them to where she has Felix and Sylvester zip-tied to the support frame of one of the surface transfer elevators and held captive.
Maeve seems pleased to find Felix, and asks him if he has any thoughts on where they should head, to which Felix replies "we left my comfort zone a long time ago".
Maeve cuts him loose and after freeing Sylvester, the group takes the elevator to the surface and enter what they believe is part of the Klondike narrative area of the park. A the snow falls they approach a campfire and are confronted by a katana wielding samurai.
"Akane No Mai"[edit | edit source]
Felix is tied up behind Sylvester on their way into the village. Sylvester asks Felix if Felix can communicate with their captors, to which Felix replies that he is "from Hong Kong, asshole."
He later helps to carry the litter that carries Maeve, Akane, and Sizemore to the shogun's camp.
"Phase Space"[edit | edit source]
When Maeve's group arrives at Park 1, Sector 15, Zone 3, she leaves for her daughter while others wait for her. After Hector, Hanaryo and Armistice go downhill to help with the Ghost Nation, Lee Sizemore, hiding in the tall grass, pulls out the QA radio he found in Shōgunworld and calls for help. Felix Lutz, angry at Sizemore for calling park help for them, takes off to help defeat the Ghost Nation.
"The Passenger"[edit | edit source]
Hector Escaton, Armistice, Hanaryo, Felix Lutz, and Sylvester enter the Mesa and find a distraught Lee Sizemore. Chaos ensues as several host bulls crash through glass doors and take out a team of QA. Maeve, leading the charge, enters — alive and well.
Maeve and her crew ride toward the Valley Beyond to find her daughter. A group of QA shoots at them. Hector tries to fend them off and sacrifice himself, but Lee pulls him back saying, “it’s my fucking speech.” Lee grandstands and sacrifices himself, distracting QA long enough for Maeve and the others to get away.
Felix repairs Maeve Millay but doesn't recognize her at all. As it turns out later, that was only his artificial version.
Personality[edit | edit source]
On the surface, Lutz is a very meek person. He doesn't stand up for himself when Sylvester mocks and belittles him, and appears to simply follow Sylvester's lead when he decides to reformat Maeve. However, he doesn't follow through with this and makes the decision to take Maeve's side and help her.
Relationships[edit | edit source]
Felix and Sylvester appear to be friends who cover their backs. Sylvester likes to mock Felix for his being empathetic toward the hosts and wasn't approved of Felix's ideas to help Maeve escape.
Felix has a great empathy toward Maeve and hosts generally. He believes she's conscious and alive as he is and even risks his job to help her escape to be free and happy. Felix even chooses Maeve over Sylvester - he refuses to reformat her completely as Sylvester wanted.
