at . Comments

She may be beautiful to look at, but Ali Larter hasn't exactly found her footing on Heroes, ever since the death of original character, Niki.

As fans prepare for the show's fourth season next month, many are wondering how prominent of a role Larter's latest character, Tracy, will play.

According to series creator Tim Kring, the answer is: a big one. He spoke to Entertainment Weekly this week and said Tracy embodies the volume's "redemption" theme:

“Tracy goes back to her old life working on the Hill, only to discover that she’s no longer driven by the same shallow rewards,” explains series creator Tim Kring. “She wants to make a difference in peoples’ lives.”

Mohinder: (voiceover) There are many ways to define our fragile existence; many ways to give it meaning. But it is our memories that shape its purpose and give it context. The private assortment of images: fears, loves, regrets… for it’s the cruel irony of life that we are destined to hold the dark with the light, the good with the evil, success with disappointment… this is what separates us, what makes us human. And in the end, we must fight to hold on to.
