Personality

The episode "Six Months Ago" reveals that Sylar's desire to be special and important drives him to kill the victims with powers. He has shed all connections to his previous life as Gabriel Gray and prefers to be called Sylar. The online comic book Road Kill reveals that Sylar now thinks of what he does as an evolutionary imperative to acquire new abilities; this was the reason he gave for his first murder in "Six Months Ago". Mr. Bennet believes the radical changes to his DNA may have driven the already unstable Gray insane. List of Heroes episodes Six Months Ago is the tenth episode of the first season of the NBC science fiction drama series Heroes. ... This article is about evolution in biology. ...


Quinto has said of his character, "The sad part is, he's initially well-intentioned. He wants to improve his life. He wants to make a difference. He wants to matter. Through the process of realizing how to do that, he gets blinded and loses himself in the pursuit of it and goes a little crazy—'a little' being an understatement."[3]


In another interview, Quinto stated that "He's definitely somebody that has been overcome by a hunger and overcome by a pursuit for power and for importance that did start a little more innocuously than it evolved into." When asked if he thought Sylar was irredeemable or not, Quinto responded, "I think there's a certain point at which you cross a line and it's sort of irrevocable.... I don't know what the writers have in mind, but it would probably be kind of a challenge at this point, you know? ... I think that that's one of the really exciting things about this show is that they're constantly coming up with surprising ideas and ideas that people would never expect, so I don't think anything is out of the question, but I do think that he's gone pretty far down a path that at this point might be a little difficult to back track."[2]


In the episode "The Hard Part", Sylar's backstory is partially explored during a visit with his mother. Several times during the visit, Sylar comments to his mother that he would be content simply fixing watches and wishes that his mother would not push him to be 'special'; that she see him as just 'normal'. The same episode also explores his unwillingness to kill those whom he views as "innocents". When Sylar learns he might end up destroying New York City in his quest for power, he is initially unnerved. He justified his previous murders as an evolutionary necessity, taking abilities from people who didn't deserve them and killing anyone who got in his way; however, the prospect of killing millions of people for no apparent reason seems monstrous even by his standards. However, after accidentally killing his mother and painting the future with her blood, he seems to reconsider this stance. The Hard Part is the twenty-first episode in the NBC drama series Heroes. ...

Genesis

In the episode "Six Months Ago", Gabriel Gray, a highly talented watch repairsperson encounters Chandra Suresh (Erick Avari), a scientist who specializes in paranormal studies. He tells Gabriel that he may be an evolved human with superhuman powers and that he would like to test his DNA. Gabriel who felt a strong desire to be special and important, eagerly submits to the testing. Gabriel discovers he has the power of intuitive aptitude; he is able to see how things work and use that to take the special powers of others after killing them.

Gabriel, now calling himself Sylar, contacts Davis, a man identified by Suresh as having special abilities. Gabriel recognizes Davis as a telekinetic and murders him to acquire his power. He returns to Chandra's apartment the next day, this time demonstrating telekinetic abilities with greater control than Davis. Thoroughly impressed, Chandra continues on with his research with "Sylar". The term psychokinesis (from the Greek ψυχή, psyche, meaning mind, soul, or breath; and κίνησις, kinesis, meaning motion; literally movement from the mind)[1][2] or PK, also known as telekinesis[3] (Greek + , literally distant-movement referring to telekinesis) or TK, denotes the paranormal ability of the mind to influence matter, time...


Sylar, being Chandra's first recorded study, is dubbed "Patient Zero", though sometime over the course of six months the study is terminated. (Chandra discovers what Sylar has done and washes his hands of him. It is later revealed that Sylar kills Chandra in the latter's taxicab.

Sylar's appearance was initially obscured, as in "One Giant Leap".

In "Don't Look Back", the FBI investigates a double homicide where a married couple with a child were murdered. Telepathic police officer Matt Parkman (Greg Grunberg) finds their unharmed daughter, Molly (Adair Tishler), hiding in the house, and learns the name "Sylar" from the FBI agent assigned to the case.

In the following episode, Sylar infiltrates the FBI's Los Angeles office and attempts to kidnap the murdered couple's daughter, Molly. Parkman and his partner Hanson (Clea Duvall)stop him and give chase. When Audrey pulls her gun, Sylar uses his powers to force her back against a wall and make her point her weapon to her own head. Matt arrives and shoots at Sylar, but when Matt checks on Audrey, Sylar stands up and the bullets which supposedly hit him fall to the ground.

Meanwhile, Mohinder and Eden McCain (Nora Zehetner) break into Sylar's apartment in New York. The apartment has no photographs but plenty of books on philosophy and a copy of Chandra's book, Activating Evolution. A secret room also contains a map similar to those used by both Chandra and Mohinder Suresh, but with many more connections and papers linked to it. Nathan Petrelli (Adrian Pasdar)is identified on one of the links, and in an adjoining room, the wall is covered in scrawls, some seemingly written in blood. Most of the messages amount to variations on the phrase "Forgive me, father, for I have sinned." When Mohinder fetches police officers to show them the apartment, it has already been cleaned out.

Sylar continues to use Chandra's list, leading him to Texas in "Seven Minutes to Midnight". Sylar enters a diner where Hiro Nakamura (Masi Oka) and Ando Masahashi (James Kyson Lee) are being served by a young waitress named Charlie Andrews. Charlie demonstrates superhuman memory skills while talking to Hiro and Ando. Sylar, who is sitting at a nearby table, follows her to the diner's storeroom, murders her, and takes her brain.

After his stop at the diner, Sylar travels to Claire Bennet's (Hayden Panettiere) high school to murder the one he believes to be a superhealing cheerleader. In the school's gym, Sylar attacks Claire and her classmate Jackie Wilcox (Danielle Savre), but concentrates his attack on Jackie, apparently due to an erroneous news article which reported that Jackie had saved a man from a fire. Sylar hurls Claire, with crushing force, against a nearby wall. As Sylar brutally attacks Jackie, cutting open Jackie's skull with no physical contact. When Sylar realizes he has the wrong girl, he turns to pursue Claire. As she makes her escape, Sylar uses his powers to attack Peter, who runs into Claire in the hallway, by telekinetically hurling locker doors at him. His pursuit ends on top of the school, where he and Peter struggle, causing both of them to fall off. Sylar escapes alive, but is later apprehended by Eden McCain and the Haitian (Jimmy Jean-Louis).

In "Fallout", Sylar is confined in a small cell which supposedly prevents him from using his powers. During his imprisonment, Sylar becomes infuriated when Mr. Bennet (Jack Coleman) repeatedly refers to him as Gabriel, insisting that his name is really Sylar after repeated uses of his former name. Mr. Bennet informs him that he'll be taken apart and studied, comparing the act to the watches Sylar once repaired. Before this can happen, however, Eden visits Sylar and attempts to use her powers to force him to him commit suicide with a gun she brought along. However, before she can give him the gun, he telekinetically slams her into the glass wall of his cell. While he informs her that her power will help him immensely, she points the gun to her own head and fires, killing herself and preventing Sylar from acquiring her power.

Bennet and the Haitian then rush into the cell and subdue him with a tranquilizer gun.[4] In "Godsend," Sylar is seen lying helpless on the floor of his cell after being injected with powerful drugs used to help make special abilities manifest. The doctor in charge of him, Hank, states that Sylar has been tested to the brink of death, saying Sylar had been given enough drugs to kill an elephant, and still fails to display any power besides telekinesis. Godsend is the twelfth episode of the NBC supernatural drama series Heroes. ... This is a list of fictional characters in the television series Heroes. ...


In "The Fix", the tests on Sylar seem to be fatal, as he dies despite Hank's best efforts. Nevertheless, after Hank reports this to Bennet and removes his restraints, Sylar revives (possibly having faked his condition) and murders Hank. When Bennet arrives to check on Sylar, he finds Hank's body in Sylar's place and Sylar standing calmly behind him. Sylar simply asks Bennet, "How's Claire?" The Fix is the thirteenth episode of the NBC supernatural drama series Heroes. ...


In "Distractions", Sylar uses his telekinesis to attack Mr. Bennet, and then traps him in the room in which Bennet had imprisoned him. After stealing Mr. Bennet's driver's license to learn the location of his house, he travels there. Under the disguise of a Primatech employee making a delivery for Mr. Bennet, he fools Mrs. Bennet for a while. However, Sylar's strange interest in Claire eventually causes Mrs. Bennet to see through his deception. He then uses his telekinesis to attack her, after telling her of his murderous intentions in regards to Claire. As he moves in to finish her off, Mr. Bennet and the Haitian run into the house. Mr. Bennet shoots Sylar multiple times. Nonetheless, Sylar quickly escapes. Though the Haitian chases after him, Sylar has already vanished.

While on the run once more, Sylar hitches a ride with a semi-truck driver. After realizing the driver is really heading West, Sylar kills him and hijacks the delivery truck. Police eventually follow Sylar, but he easily escapes them by using his powers to put ice on the road and then jump/fly out of the truck as it crashes over the embankment. Sylar also notes that he is down to the last person he can remember from Chandra's list. Thus, he ends up at the home of this person, and the events of "Run!" begin.

Zane Taylor was expecting Mohinder Suresh (Sendhil Ramamurthy) to visit him when Sylar comes to his door. Mistaking Sylar for Mohinder, Zane lets him into his house and quickly demonstrates his liquefaction ability to him. Sylar kills Zane and takes his ability, just before the real Mohinder arrives. When Mohinder enters, Sylar identifies himself as Zane Taylor, showing Mohinder his new ability when prompted. Mohinder then asks for a DNA sample to continue his research. Sylar covertly gives him a sample from Zane's corpse, in lieu of his own. As the conversation draws to an end, Sylar, seeing Mohinder as a way to find more victims, suggests accompanying Mohinder on his mission to find other "unique people". Sylar states that because he possesses an ability himself, he could help convince others to help with Mohinder’s research, with which Mohinder happily agrees.

Sylar and Mohinder then locate a woman named Dale, who possesses incredibly enhanced hearing that allows her to hear rain coming from forty miles away, or to hear the changes in someone's heartbeat. Sylar demonstrates his new liquefaction ability, and she agrees to let Mohinder run some tests. Later that night, Sylar returns to Dale's shop, kills her, and takes her ability. The next day, Sylar finds his new enhanced hearing ability hard to control, as he experiences excruciating pain at the slightest noise. Mohinder finds Dale's body, but Sylar convinces him not to phone the police, telling him they'd look too suspicious. Mohinder agrees, and says he'll phone them once they're on the road again.


Later, Mohinder, unbeknownst to Sylar, has discovered his true identity, after finding a news article on the internet about Zane Taylor's death. Mohinder drugs Sylar, and restrains him to a chair, hooking up an I.V. with curare, which renders him unable to access his abilities. Mohinder prepares to shoot Sylar, but stops when Sylar tells him that Mohinder's father confided in him and trusted him more than his son. Mohinder proceeds to take a sample of Sylar's spinal fluid, without any anesthetic. Through this sample, Mohinder apparently finds the key to being able to locate other unique people (to "make a new list," as Mohinder states). He then attempts to kill Sylar, who had secretly shut off the I.V. via a reserve of telekinesis he had been building up. Sylar telekinetically stops the bullet Mohinder fires at him, and then asks Mohinder for his list. Later on, Peter (Milo Ventimiglia) arrives at Mohinder's apartment, finding him pinned to the ceiling through Sylar's telekinetic abilities, bleeding. Sylar then emerges from the darkness and pins Peter to the wall, saying that he would like to see how Peter's power works.

Sylar slices deep into Peter's skull at the beginning of ".07%", attempting to claim his powers; however, Peter is able to use Claire's healing ability to close the wound before hurling Sylar across the room with his own telekinetic abilities, freeing Mohinder as a result. Sylar quickly recovers from the attack and prepares to battle Peter, who responds by becoming invisible. Sylar notes that he “can’t wait to try that one”, and retaliates by telekinetically lifting a large amount of shattered glass off the ground and flinging it in all directions, stabbing Peter in the back of the head and killing him. As Sylar moves in to take Peter's power, Mohinder crushes him against the wall with his charts, knocking him out. Sylar awakens later, finding Mohinder's list destroyed.

Isaac just finishes a painting of Sylar standing over his corpse as the killer arrives. Isaac tells Sylar that he has seen Sylar's future, and that he is doomed to die at the hands of the other heroes. Sylar retaliates by impaling Isaac's wrists and ankles with paintbrushes. Isaac tells him that he can't fight the future, and Sylar kills him and takes his power. Sylar is later seen painting a picture of Nathan Petrelli standing in the White House. His painting is, however, far darker and more macabre than Isaac's, showing Nathan in a slightly demonic light; the colors of the painting are also distorted. Nathan Petrelli, portrayed by Adrian Pasdar, is a fictional character on the NBC science fiction drama series Heroes. ... For other uses, see White House (disambiguation). ...


As "The Hard Part" begins, Sylar finishes a new painting, showing himself about to kill Ted Sprague (Matthew John Armstrong). Fearing that he is going to be the exploding man, he phones Suresh, telling him that he doesn't know why he'd want to do that. He tells him that he only killed people who "didn't deserve" their powers, and that he doesn't want to kill all those innocent people. Mohinder asks him to turn himself in while dialing 911. Sylar hears him dial and quickly hangs up. Sylar then calls his mother and asks if he can come over. He proceeds to clean himself up, dressing like he appeared in "Six Months Ago". As he goes to leave, he hears the heartbeats of Hiro (Masi Oka) and Ando (James Kyson Lee), who had come looking for Isaac. Hiro teleports himself and Ando away just before Sylar finds them.

Sylar arrives at his mother's apartment, his mother expressing great joy and relief to see him. During their conversations, in which Sylar asks that his mom accept him as a "normal" watchmaker, and not wish for him to be special, it becomes apparent that his mother is the reason Sylar longs to be special. She even tells him that he could be president if he wanted, possibly allowing him to justify taking Nathan Petrelli’s presidential role in "Five Years Gone". Sylar eventually demonstrates his powers to his mother, using a kitchen hose, his freezing powers, and telekinesis to turn her apartment into a "snow globe". However, he seems to become detached and unresponsive as he uses his powers, inadvertently injuring her. The two eventually have words. Sylar's mother accidentally kills herself by plunging a pair of scissors into her chest.

Hiro, having followed Sylar, freezes time at this moment and attempts to kill him, but loses his nerve and lets his concentration slip, allowing Sylar to block Hiro's sword. Sylar tries to goad Hiro into killing him, but resolves to kill Hiro after he can't do so. Sylar breaks Hiro's sword with his freezing powers, and Hiro teleports away before Sylar can kill him. Sylar is later seen painting the explosion in New York in blood, saying that his mother was right about him being able to become president.


As "Landslide" begins, Sylar has tracked down Sprague, who is with Claire, Peter, Mr. Bennet and Matt Parkman. Sylar uses his enhanced hearing to learn that Ted, Peter, and Claire are heading to Nebraska and that Ted is wanted by the FBI, so he begins following them. Peter hears Sylar's thoughts as they move down the street, and the three of them duck into a building to hide. Sylar takes the time to contact the FBI and inform them of Ted's whereabouts, leading to his arrest shortly after he leaves the building. Audrey Hanson, who is leading the FBI team, thanks Sylar for the tip. He gives his name as Isaac Mendez before disappearing into the crowd. Later, Sylar attacks the van that is transferring Ted to Guantanamo Bay, using his telekinesis to flip it over. Still chained to the van, Ted is unable to fight back as Sylar moves in and kills him, taking his power. Landslide is the twenty-second episode in the NBC drama series Heroes. ...

Sylar and Peter Petrelli preparing to battle in "How to Stop an Exploding Man".

In "How to Stop an Exploding Man", Sylar paints a picture of himself facing off against Peter Petrelli at Kirby Plaza. Realizing Peter is part of his final destiny, Sylar prepares to hunt him down. However, before he leaves, Ando arrives to kill him. Sylar easily defeats Ando; discovering the comic that shows his death, he taunts Ando, saying that a "silly little man" like Hiro could never kill him. Sylar demands the location of Peter from Ando, but Ando tells him he doesn't know. Hiro teleports into the loft. Sylar taunts Hiro to try and stop time before he cuts off Ando's head.

Sylar being impaled by Hiro Nakamura.

Doing as his painting suggests, Sylar waits for Peter in Kirby Plaza. Peter soon arrives with Mr. Bennet, whom Sylar hurls against a wall, incapacitating him. Sylar tells Peter that he will not get "all the glory", and grabs him with his telekinesis. Matt Parkman arrives and shoots at Sylar, who stops the bullets and throws them back at Matt, gravely wounding him. Sylar then grabs a parking meter and begins to beat Peter, but a nearby Niki Sanders rips the meter from Sylar's hands and knocks him down. Having absorbed Niki's (Ali Larter) enhanced strength, Peter begins beating Sylar viciously. Sylar, instead of fighting back, begins laughing as Peter's hands begin to glow. He tells Peter that he has been wrong all along, that Peter is the villain, and he's the hero. As Sylar watches Peter, Hiro teleports in behind him and runs Sylar through with Ando's sword before Sylar can react. Sylar collapses to the ground, but before Hiro can do anything to stop Peter from exploding, Sylar uses what little strength he has left to toss Hiro against a building, forcing him to teleport away at the last second. Sylar smiles and slumps to the ground; in his eyes, he sees everyone who has died due to his own actions, including himself, and they then fade to white.

Generations

In "Kindred" Sylar is found to be in the company of Candice Wilmer (Rachel Kimsey), who apparently dragged him into the manhole cover after his defeat in New York. The two are in hiding somewhere in Mexico. Sylar's severe injuries, described as having required eight surgeries to fix (Hiro's stab apparently struck his spine, among other injuries), have somehow rendered his powers inoperative, if not caused them to disappear entirely. Candice assures him that his powers will return, if he has adequate time to rest and heal. She also mentions that the people she works for want Sylar to be healthy and with his power back. Sylar, enraged by his loss of powers, attempts to rebuild his power base by killing Candice, only to discover that it does not correct the problem — he is unable to access her power of illusion. Stumbling outside, he finds himself alone in the middle of a dense jungle.

A period of time later, at the outset of "The Kindness of Strangers" Alejandro (Shalim Ortiz) and Maya (Dania Ramirez) come across his near unconscious form on their way to the United States. When asked what his name is, he glances at his broken "Sylar" watch and replies with Gabriel Gray, his real name. He tells Maya that he knows Dr. Chandra Suresh and will take the siblings to him. While making a stop, the car's 'owner', Derek, sees the warrant notices for Maya and Alejandro in a newspaper and brings it to Sylar's attention. Sylar agrees to stall the pair while Derek calls the police, but kills Derek before heading back to Maya and Alejandro. Once there, he is nearly killed after stressing Maya with the news that Derek is calling the police, which causes her to manifest her virus. However, Sylar is saved when Alejandro reverses the effects. Surprised to find they have powers, and understanding why they are wanted for murder, Sylar agrees to take the pair to see Chandra Suresh, having appropriated the keys to the car from Derek. He explains to them that he understands people who have done things they aren't really responsible for. This is a list of episodes for the NBC series Heroes. ...

In "The Line", Alejandro becomes more distrustful of Sylar, while Sylar is able to earn Maya's trust in turn. Upon reaching the US border, their car is surrounded by armed civilian border patrolmen. Sylar persuades Maya to use her power in order to avoid capture by the armed patrol. Later that night, he engages in a fist fight with Alejandro outside the car, forcing Maya to intervene and break them up. Unable to convince her to leave Sylar behind, he warns her that he will let Sylar die if she uses her power again. After Maya walks away, Sylar reveals his true intentions to Alejandro, knowing he won't be able to understand a single word: once he regains his powers, he'll kill them both and steal their abilities, as well. He also says that even if he doesn't regain his powers, Maya will become his new toy, and he'll use her for his own ends. List of Heroes episodes The Line is the sixth episode of the second season of the NBC science fiction drama series Heroes. ...


In "Truth & Consequences", Sylar further manipulates Maya, telling her it is possible to control her powers. He taunts her into a state of emotional frenzy, telling her that her brother hates her and that in her heart she wanted to see his fiancee dead. She nearly kills Sylar with her ability, but at the last moment reverses it, gaining at least some control of her power. Sylar then convinces her she must send Alejandro away for his own good. In a heated scene with the three of them she tells him to leave and that she is staying with Gabriel. Alejandro comes back later in an attempt to stop Sylar's manipulation of Maya, and is stabbed and killed. Maya arrives and confesses her love for "Gabriel," and kisses him, not realizing Alejandro's fate. At the end of the episode Sylar and Maya arrive at the Parkman residence, waiting beside a sleeping Molly. He calls Suresh, stating ominously that he will "See him soon." List of Heroes episodes Truth & Consequences is the tenth episode of the second season of the NBC science fiction drama series Heroes. ...


In "Powerless", Sylar attempts to obtain a cure for his condition, now revealed to be the same strain of the Shanti Virus which Niki was infected with. After Mohinder learns of this, he attempts to stab Sylar, but Sylar reveals a gun and forces Mohinder to comply. Monhider takes him to his lab and covertly triggers the alarm, then stalls for time. While waiting with Molly, Molly reveals that she can track Alejandro through a photograph, only to have her failed attempt confirm for Maya that Sylar killed Alejandro. When she confronts him about it, Sylar shoots her. He has Mohinder test the cure enhanced with Claire's blood on Maya, and once it begins working attempts to leave with the rest. Elle shows up to take down Sylar, but fails to capture him, though she does cause several significant wounds.

Villains

At the start of "Volume Three - Villains", Sylar injects himself with the cure, healing his wounds. He tests out his telekinesis by dragging a can to himself, happily remarking, "I'm back." Psychokinesis (literally mind-movement) or PK is the more commonly used term today for what in the past was known as telekinesis (literally distant-movement). It refers to the psi ability to influence the behavior of matter by mental intention (or possibly some other aspect of mental activity) alone. ...

Sylar finally gets his powers back.

Alternate Future - Genesis

In the graphic novel "String Theory" Hiro says that, before he attempted to alter the past, Sylar was the "exploding man" that decimated New York. Hiro attempted to kill him, but failed because this Sylar possessed Claire Bennet's power of regeneration. Over the ensuing five years, strict laws for the control and registration of powered individuals came into effect, and Hiro dedicated himself to protecting those who could not protect themselves. In addition, he mapped out the events that had culminated in Sylar's explosion, and, identifying the key factor, used his powers to travel back in time five years and contact present-day Peter Petrelli, giving him the cryptic message, "Save the cheerleader, save the world." Hiro reasoned that if Peter saved Claire from Sylar, he would not acquire her healing powers, and thus could be killed before he exploded. However, Hiro's efforts had little overall effect on the timeline. Though Claire was indeed saved, the future still played out in much the same manner. Claire Bennet, portrayed by Hayden Panettiere, is a fictional character on the NBC science fiction drama series Heroes. ...


"Five Years Gone" reveals the new timeline Hiro created when the present-day Hiro inadvertently travels into the future and sees it for himself. While "future Hiro's" warning allowed Peter to save Claire, Peter became the bomb instead of Sylar. This fact was concealed by his brother, Nathan, now President of the United States, who blamed Sylar to protect him. Sylar is believed to have died in the same explosion. Unbeknownst to anyone, however, Sylar still lives; having killed both Nathan and Candice Wilmer, he has used the latter's illusion-casting ability to assume Nathan's identity.

By this point in time, Sylar has become content with the powers he has gained from his victims. As such, his goal has changed from acquisition to elimination: as powerful as he is, Sylar doesn't want any competition. After killing Claire for her ability, he gives a speech in the ruins of New York to advertise the cure. During the speech, Sylar is contacted by Matt Parkman, who tells him that Peter is keeping them from apprehending both the past and future Hiros. Revealing his secret to the media, Sylar takes flight and arrives at the building to stop Peter. While Sylar and Peter battle, Mohinder bars a door against the effects, allowing Hiro and Ando to return to the present.

Powers, abilities and skills

Original power

When Sylar first meets Chandra Suresh six months prior to the series' starting point, he is described as having "intuitive aptitude", the ability to know how things work by looking at them. This ability to see and manipulate patterns within complex systems made him an expert at restoring time pieces. He was able to discern any problems, with any given watch, almost instantly. He later uses this ability to locate the source of the power in the brain of his victims, enabling him to steal their abilities. Upon meeting Brian Davis and learning of his telekinetic abilities, Sylar promises to "fix" what Davis perceived as a problem and kills him, taking his telekinetic powers for himself.

Acquired powers

In "Fallout", Mr. Bennet mentions that Sylar's powers are a product of using foreign DNA to alter his own. However, the series has left it intentionally ambiguous as to how Sylar does so once he removes a victim's brain. In a March 22, 2007, interview executive producer Tim Kring, when asked if Sylar eats brains, laughed that "that's the popular speculation. There is a connection between the powers and the brain - and Sylar has found it. Early in season 2, you'll find out what he's been doing with the brains."[5] Bryan Fuller also explained in an interview that the original concept was that Sylar kills people and he eats their brains and he, like, digests their power"; however, in order to avoid the potential silliness and zombie associations, they decided to deliberately make this fact vague in the series.[6] Whether or not Sylar's cannibalism is literal or metaphorical, various episodes express his assimilation of powers in cannibalistic language using words like delicious to describe Maya's power, or for example, in "Parasite", Sylar loses his composure when demanding the list of heroes Mohinder is compiling, saying, "Give me that damn list! So I can ... sink my teeth in!" Fallout is the eleventh episode of the NBC sci-fi drama series Heroes. ... For the Passions character, see Noah Bennett. ...

Of all the powers Sylar has acquired, his most prominently displayed power is telekinesis, which was the first power he absorbed. Compared to the limited abilities Davis displayed, Sylar's skill with telekinesis is much more advanced. He can enhance his own strength with it, seen when he flings Claire Bennet several feet horizontally into a wall with enough force to break her arm and severely lacerate her face. He also has enough fine control to smoothly cut open the skulls of his victims. When tested by Bennet's associate, Hank, Sylar shows no overt signs of any power besides telekinesis. Psychokinesis (literally mind-movement) or PK is the more commonly used term today for what in the past was known as telekinesis (literally distant-movement). It refers to the psi ability to influence the behavior of matter by mental intention (or possibly some other aspect of mental activity) alone. ...

Sylar also demonstrates a number of abilities which, while feasibly explained by his telekinesis or other known powers, have not been explicitly attributed to a specific power. He exhibits some sort of levitation in several episodes, most notably "One Giant Leap" and "Unexpected", rising upward to escape capture in the former and hovering to bypass Dale Smither's superhuman hearing in the latter. He has also demonstrated superhuman durability on a number of occasions. He catches Hiro Nakamura's katana bare-handed in "The Hard Part", is shot numerous times to no ill-effect (aside from small bruises), walks away from a fall that kills Peter in "Homecoming", and recovers from being hit with a parking meter and a severe beating by Peter (using Niki Sanders' enhanced strength) rather quickly in "How to Stop an Exploding Man". On several occasions, Sylar has mysteriously appeared or disappeared from view instantly; in "How to Stop an Exploding Man", Peter speculates that he is "hiding in plain sight."

Sylar also recovers from apparent death on at least two occasions. In "The Fix", he recovers after being diagnosed as clinically dead, and in "How to Stop an Exploding Man", his body vanishes into the sewers after having suffered a seemingly fatal stab wound from Hiro's sword. In both instances a cockroach is seen crawling nearby. However, the second instance is explained in "Kindred" to be the work of Candice Wilmer, who used her power to evacuate him after his injury. Eight surgeries were required to repair the damage. Following these surgeries, Sylar has been unable to access any of his acquired powers, and also seems unable to acquire new powers by killing as in the past. However, after returning to New York with Maya and visiting Mohinder, it is revealed this is due to an injection of the Shanti Virus strain that Niki was also exposed to. Sylar steals the cure intended for Niki and injects it into himself, restoring his powers. The Fix is the thirteenth episode of the NBC supernatural drama series Heroes. ...

As mentioned in the graphic novel "String Theory", Future Hiro listed Sylar as being the original exploding man. Hiro's attempt to stop Sylar failed because Sylar had Claire's regenerative ability. Since Hiro had since prevented Claire's death, Sylar no longer had her power. As shown in "Five Years Gone", Peter became the exploding man instead, while Sylar continued obtaining other abilities.

Murders/Victims

Sylar has committed several murders, the victims often being others with powers of their own. In such cases, Sylar removes their brains.

Names and aliases

Gabriel Gray took the alias "Sylar" six months before most of the series' events. He got the name from a brand of watch that he had been working on. Since then, "Sylar" does not want to be referred to by his given name, angrily proclaiming that his name is indeed Sylar after Mr. Bennet repeatedly uses his real name. However, he returns to using his original name after finding that his powers have disappeared. A picture of a news clipping on the NBC website has a birth announcement for a "Paul E. Sylar," born June 11, 1962.[8] This clipping is posted to the left of the map in Chandra Suresh's New York apartment, but does not appear in any of the televised episodes. The same clipping is seen, however, in the 72-minute Tim Kring Cut unaired pilot. In "Landslide" he uses Isaac Mendez's name to call in a report that he has seen Ted Sprague. Sprague is then arrested by the FBI and later killed by Sylar. For other uses, see Alias. ...

Besides this, Sylar also tends to use assumed names and various dialects in an attempt to mask his true identity and intentions. He has used the alias "Drew O'Grady", which he had stolen from a newspaper headline.[9] He allowed Zane Taylor to believe he was Mohinder Suresh, and later took on Taylor's identity to join forces with the real Suresh. In the alternate future depicted in "Five Years Gone", it is revealed that Sylar had been using Candice Wilmer's power of illusion to successfully masquerade as President of the United States, Nathan Petrelli.
