In The Sentinel fanon, Blair Sandburg's hair, along with his compromised lungs, is almost a secondary character.

In fiction, Blair's hair is constantly described in great detail -- there are many descriptions of its color, its texture, its smell, the way it fans out on a pillow (both in Jim's bed and in the hospital ICU), how Blair tucks it behind his ear, how he pulls it back in a ponytail, how it causes Jim to zone, and whether or not Blair cuts his hair if he decides to become a cop.
