- Wesley: “Protection runes derived from the Enochian alphabet. The ones from your vision are symbols, some kind of concealment spell. Clouds before the all-seeing eyes.”
- Cordelia: “Mmm. OK. This part I didn't miss. Cryptic poetry.”
- Wesley: “They protect the bearer from being viewed remotely from higher powers, seers, mystics. Or, transposed to today, any means of modern surveillance.”

The Enochian protection runes were symbols derived from the Enochian alphabet, utilized in a concealment spell. They had the power to render the user invisible to both Higher Beings, Seers, Mystics and technological surveillance devices, though not the naked eye. These runes also seemed to grant Lindsey his enhanced physical attributes, transmutation and telekinetic abilities as he no longer seemed to possess them after being stripped of said symbols.
Upon his return to Los Angeles in late 2003, Lindsey McDonald tattooed these runes onto his body, as well as painting them onto the walls of his apartment, to hide himself from the Senior Partners while he plotted his revenge on Angel.
The protection runes could be removed by a spell, performed by Angel Investigations while Lindsey was fighting Angel.
