During the upcoming Heroes episode, "The Kindess of Strangers," we'll meet Monica, Micah's cousin. Played by Dana Davis (formerly of ABC's The Nine), here's what we've learned about this new character:
Monica's mother died during Hurricane Katrina and the family has moved back into their once-flooded home, where her grandmother (Nichelle Nichols) cares for her two grandchildren.
Monica grows into an avenging angel, intent on bringing justice to the corruption-plagued Big Easy. Her storyline is expected to run for at least five or six episodes of the second season.
As we already know, Micah has been sent to New Orleans to live with these relatives.
