Geneticist Mohinder Suresh has always felt a bit unloved by his father, a professor who was always more engaged in his research than in his relationship with his son. But when Mohinder's father is murdered in far away New York City, Mohinder decides to travel there from India to solve the murder mystery and finish his father's research.
In New York City, Mohinder realizes that there are many people and perhaps a secret government agency after his father's research, which details the names of anyone who may have special abilities. Mohinder also learns that he had a sister who died when she was young. He doesn't remember her, but questions whether she had special powers and whether she is the reason his father began the research project.
When Mohinder decides to try to help the genetically improved species and warn them about Sylar a watchmaker who kills people with abilities and takes their powers, he becomes involved with the very person who may hurt him most.
There is good and there is evil. Right and wrong. Heroes and villains. And if we're blessed with wisdom, then there are glimpses between the cracks of each where light streams through. We wait in silence for these times when sense can be made, when meaningless existence comes into focus, and our purpose presents itself. And if we have the strength to be honest, then what we find there, staring back at us, is our own reflection, bearing witness to the duality of life. And each one of us is capable of both the dark and the light, of good and evil, of either, of all. And destiny, while marching ever in our direction, can be rerouted by the choices we make. By the love we hold onto, and the promises we keep.Mohinder
This quest. This need to solve life's mysteries. In the end, what does it matter when the human heart can only find meaning in the smallest of moments? They're here. Among us. In the shadows. In the light. Everywhere. Do they even know yet?Mohinder Suresh
