Sylar, whose real name is Gabriel Gray, always wanted to be recognized as something special, but had resigned himself to life as a watchmaker. That is, until Dr. Suresh came into the picture. When Sylar showed no signs of special abilities, he was ditched by Suresh, but started his own mission searching for others with powers.

He quickly realized that if he killed people with special abilities, he inherited the powers, and quickly Sylar has found the recognition and self-worth he has been craving his whole life.

Quickly becoming a serial killer, Sylar is chased by the FBI, Dr Suresh's son Mohinder, and another unnamed agency that has long been tracing people with special abilities.

Sylar Quotes

Mr. Bennet: That's enough, Gabriel.
Sylar: My name is SYLAR!

When I was a kid... I used to wish some stranger would come and tell me my family wasn't really my family. They weren't bad people, they were just... insignificant. And I wanted to be different. Special. I wanted to change. A new name, a new life. The watchmaker's son... became a watchmaker. It is so futile. And I wanted to be... important.

Heroes Quotes

We are bad asses now!

Hiro

Hiro: Every ten year old wishes he had super powers. And I got them. Me of all people. Last in my class. Last on the sports field. I’m not a loser anymore.
Ando: Tell me one useful thing you could do with this power. Can you make money?
Hiro: A super hero doesn’t use his power for personal gain.
Ando: Then what good is it? Can you teleport yourself into the women’s bathroom? Now, there’s something useful. You won’t learn your "purpose" in there, but you might learn something about life.
