Claude is both a former employee of the Company and former partner of Noah Bennet. However, after it is discovered that Claude is hiding the identity of a powered person from the Company, Bennet is ordered to kill him. During the assassination attempt, however, an injured Claude turns invisible and escapes. He then spends many years invisible, hiding from the Company. He is eventually found by Peter Petrelli, who had seen him in a dream. Having previous experience with empaths, Claude is convinced by Peter to help him master control of his ability so that he will not eventually lose control and explode. With Claude's help, Peter is able to recall powers that he had previously absorbed, but before the training can be completed, Bennet and the Haitian track them down with the help of Isaac Mendez.

In addition, Claude has the ability to see others using the same power; Peter, having copied Claude's power, can see him when they're both invisible as easily as any normal person can when he's not invisible. Claude's power also extends to everything in his immediate vicinity, namely his clothes and other personal effects.

After Mohinder found Sanjog, he explained to Mohinder that he does not enter the dreams of others but that they instead come to him.

In "Seven Minutes to Midnight", the name on the file's label included a comma as a typo. On the NBC website, Suresh's map spells the name Sanjop Iyer. The episode "Homecoming" confirms the boy's name is Sanjog Iyer.

In an interview with Joe Pokaski and Aron Coleite, they state that Sanjog's character was considered for the storyline involving Molly and her nightmare man, Maury Parkman. However, the idea was scrapped for reasons they did not reveal. [ [http://www.comicbookresources.com/news/newsitem.cgi?id=12125 Comic Book Resources – CBR News – The Comic Reel ] ]

Arthur would have died, if not for Daniel choosing to make him the second person he ever healed. After the war, Daniel finds himself living a nomadic, solitary existence. Though he occasionally drowns his sorrows in alcohol, nothing eases the pain of his war memories.

As an aged man, Linderman is a reputed mobster, and founder of 's disciple.

In the series premiere, Linderman sends two thugs to Niki Sanders' home to collect on a loan she could not repay, but the thugs are killed. In "Collision", one of Linderman's subordinates gives Niki the opportunity to repay her debt by being the bait in a badger game targeting Nathan Petrelli; Jessica, Niki's alternate personality, eventually complies. Nathan, however, realizes that Linderman needs him to win the congressional seat he was running for, and convinces Linderman's associate to "donate" $4 million to his campaign, rather than the originally agreed-upon $2 million, and suppress the tape. Later on, in a meeting with him, Nathan holds a gun on Linderman. Linderman subsequently reveals to him the extent of his knowledge regarding Nathan's, Peter's and Claire's powers, as well as those of many others, before offering him the victory in the election, as well as an eventual position in the White House. In "Distractions", he arranged for Niki Sanders' freedom from prison in exchange for Jessica's services as an assassin.

In the episode "Landslide", Linderman heals Nathan Petrelli's wife Heidi's paralysis. Later Linderman meets with Candice and Micah at the building in New York. By promising Micah his freedom and enough money to make his family live happily ever after, Linderman persuades him to adjust the election results so that Nathan wins by "a landslide" by manipulating the outcome through one of the networked electronic voting machines. At night, Linderman gets an unexpected visit from Niki and Micah's father, D.L. Hawkins. Linderman pulls out a loaded gun and tries to shoot Niki, but D.L. takes the bullet for her. In return, he uses his phasing powers to phase his fist through Linderman's skull, leaving a fist-sized hole after removing it, seemingly killing him.

In "The Second Coming", Linderman appears before Nathan Petrelli explaining to him that he was healed by him. In "The Butterfly Effect", Linderman reveals that only Nathan can see him.

Eden McCain

* Played by: Nora Zehetner
* First appeared in: "Don't Look Back"
* Special ability: Vocal persuasion

Eden McCain was born as Sarah Ellis and raised in a small town. Her father frequently argued with her stepmother and left them when she was young. She was forced to do housework immediately after school for most of her childhood by her stepmother, a stereotypically cruel woman. Over time, her stepmother began to blame the girl for her father abandoning them. After years of this treatment, in response to a particularly violent tantrum, Sarah shouted "I wish you'd just die!" and caused her stepmother's heart to instantly stop beating. The house then caught on fire as a result of her stepmother's cigarette falling to the ground. After escaping, Sarah asked a passerby to take her west, and later adopted the name "Eden McCain".Cite comic| Writer = Perluigi Cothran | Penciller = Marcus To | Inker = Mark Roslan | Title = [http://www.nbc.com/Heroes/novels/downloads/Heroes_novel_009.pdf Heroes: Life Before Eden] | Volume = 1 | Issue = 9 | Date = 2006 | Publisher = Aspen MLT, Inc.]

Afterward, about six months before most of first season's events, Eden was a criminal doing any selfish thing she wanted. This changed when she was taken in by Noah Bennet. Bennet and his partner the Haitian pacified Eden's powers so that Bennet could persuade her into working with them. Her first assignment was to move in near Chandra Suresh and befriend him, so that she could remove the name of Bennet's daughter from a list of superhumans Chandra had made.

At the end of "Homecoming", Eden uses her power to put Sylar to sleep with the Haitian present. Later, in "Fallout", she suggests killing Sylar by using her power to make him kill himself. When Mr. Bennet disagrees, Eden takes matters into her own hands. She approaches Sylar outside his holding cell with a gun, then explains that she is going to give him the gun and he is going to commit suicide. During their conversation, Eden reveals that she was the next door neighbor of Chandra Suresh. Before she has a chance to invoke her power of persuasion, Sylar telekinetically jerks Eden through the glass wall of his cell, breaking her concentration. He then grabs hold of her throat and begins to choke her while she struggles to try and shoot him. Sylar claims that a gun will not work on him and that he will kill her and take her power. Eden quickly decides to put the gun to her own head and fire, taking her own life before Sylar can steal her power.cite comic| Writer = Andrew Chambliss | Penciller = Travis Kotzebue & Mucah Gunnell | Inker = Peter Steigrwald | Title = [http://www.nbc.com/Heroes/novels/downloads/Heroes_novel_011.pdf Heroes: Fathers & Daughters] | Volume = 1 | Issue = 11 | Date = 2006 | Publisher = Aspen MLT, Inc.] Her body is later found in Sudbury, Ontario, having been dumped into Lake Ramsey.cite episode | title = Godsend | episodelink = Godsend (Heroes) | series = Heroes | serieslink = Heroes (TV series)| network = NBC | credits = Director: Paul Shapiro, Writer: Tim Kring | airdate = 2007-01-22]

She asks him if it's worth his friend's life, holding a knife to Ando's neck and cutting him.

Ishi Nakamura

*Played by: Unknown
*First appeared in "Cautionary Tales"
*Special ability: Unknown

Ishi Nakamura was the wife of Kaito Nakamura and mother to Kimiko and Hiro. She was shown as deceased when Hiro was eight years old when he went back in time with his father in an attempt to convince him to escape his death. It was revealed that she had an ability in an interview with Aron Coleite and Joe Pokaski. [ [http://comicbookresources.com/?page=article&id=18343 Comic Book Resources Behind the Eclipse: Week 2] ]

Kaito Nakamura

* Played by: George Takei, Eijiro Ozaki (young)
* First appeared in: "The Fix"
* Special Ability: Unknown

Kaito Nakamura is a stern and powerful businessman in Japan and the father of Hiro Nakamura. He is the CEO of Yamagato Industries. He is described as a man with "real power" by his underlings. Mr. Nakamura does not want Hiro going around the United States trying to fulfill his "destiny". In reference to Takei's role as Hikaru Sulu in the original "Star Trek" television series, the license plate on Mr. Nakamura's limousine has the same number, NCC-1701, as the registration number of the Starship "Enterprise".

This characterization of a strict Japanese patriarch is promptly turned upside down. In "Company Man", he is shown working with Thompson for the organization behind Primatech nearly fifteen years before the events of the series' present. He ordered Noah Bennet to adopt Claire on the provision that if she exhibits any abilities she is to be turned over to The Company. It is revealed that not only had he been waiting for someone on the Nakamura line to manifest and has known of Hiro's powers for a long time, but that he once had allies who also had powers. Mr. Nakamura is on Hiro's side in the attempt to stop Sylar, in direct opposition to the Linderman group. He spends some time training his son in swordsmanship using wooden bokken, revealing that he was once a part of a group of heroes.In 1977 as part of the 'Company Founders' he was influential in protecting strain 138 of the Shanti virus from being released in an attempt by Adam Monroe to 'start the world anew'.

When Ando Masahashi is teleported to Yamagato, Kaito informs him that his position has been filled and that he can take Hiro's old post. When Ando asks about Hiro's return, Kaito says that there is no need to cross a bridge before needed.

After receiving a marked photograph of himself hidden in his newspaper, he realizes that he is doomed to die. Upon sending Ando off to retrieve a sword, Kaito meets with Angela Petrelli, who had been similarly threatened. That evening, Kaito is thrown off the roof of the Deveaux building by a hooded individual whom he recognizes. Ando returns just as Kaito is thrown over, and sees his body in the street – but not that of his assailant. In "Cautionary Tales", Hiro goes back in time to prevent his death. Kaito is resigned to his fate, explaining to Hiro that their gifts cannot be used to play God. Hiro lets the murder play out, but uses his powers to learn that the assailant was Adam Monroe.

In a question and answer segment with writers/producers Joe Pokaski and Aron Coleite, they confirmed that Kaito absolutely has a power, but it will not be revealed for a long while.Weiland, Jonah, (October 1, 2007) " [http://www.comicbookresources.com/news/newsitem.cgi?id=12002 Behind the Eclipse: Season 2, Week 1] ", Comic Book Resources. Retrieved on December 31, 2007.] A non-canon, deleted scene from the "Heroes" season two DVD boxset showed his ability as being able to analyze the probabilities of a situation and determine the outcome. However, it is to be stressed that this scene is not and cannot be taken as official confirmation of his ability.

Maury Parkman

* Played by: Alan Blumenfeld
* First appeared in: "Fight or Flight"
* Special ability: Telepathy

Maury Parkman is Matt Parkman's father, having abandoned Matt when he was thirteen. He is one of the twelve founders of the Company. Like his son, Mr. Parkman is a telepath; however, his powers are much more developed than Matt's. Instead of just reading surface thoughts, he can read people's memories and manipulate their perceptions of reality, allowing him to trap people in nightmares based on their deepest fears and insecurities. He can either knock a person unconscious and manipulate their dreams, as he did to Molly Walker (and by so doing, left her physical body in a comatose state that lasted until Matt learned how to counter Maury's influence using his own powers), or he can induce "waking nightmares" that allow the person's real body to move, as he did to Matt and Nathan Petrelli, who were tricked into fighting each other while both were experiencing a nightmare scenario. He is also able to detect Molly's attempts to locate him using her power, and he does not require close proximity to affect a person's mind.cite episode | title = Fight or Flight | episodelink = Fight or Flight (Heroes) | series = Heroes | serieslink = Heroes (TV series) | network = NBC | credits = Director: Lesli Glatter, Writer: Joy and Melissa Blake | airdate = 2007-10-22] His use of this ability has led Molly Walker to give him the name "the Nightmare Man."

Maury was one of several people swayed into believing that those with abilities are superior to humans by Adam Monroe, and when Adam escaped from the Company's custody, he sent Maury to kill those founding members who disagreed with him. He is implied to have been responsible for the self-inflicted wounds of Angela Petrelli. When he attempts to kill Bob, he is stopped by Matt, who manages to trap Maury in his own nightmare.

In one of Angela Petrelli's precognitive dreams, Maury is seen along with Adam Monroe, a woman who is either Tracy Strauss or her sister Barbara, Knox, and Sylar killing the Heroes.

West Rosen

* Played by: Nicholas D'Agosto
* First appeared in: "Four Months Later..."
* Special ability: Flight

Prior to the start of the series, West Rosen is abducted by Mr. Bennet and the Haitian and taken to Primatech Paper in Odessa. There, he escapes a lab by discovering his flying ability for the first time. He flies into a vent, where he sees Claire. Both West and Claire are very young at the time. Claire and West exchange words, until the Haitian comes to recapture West and wipe his memory clean. West is then released back home, with his newly discovered ability to fly.

West is a student at Costa Verde High School and classmate of Claire Bennet. He first notices Claire when he almost hits her with his car. The two strike up a friendship in Biology class.cite episode | title = Four Months Later... | episodelink = Four Months Later... | series = Heroes | serieslink = Heroes (TV series) | network = NBC | credits = Director: Greg Beeman, Writer: Tim Kring | airdate = 2007-09-24] West has a philosophy that people are either 'Aliens' or 'Robots'. [ [http://www.nbc.com/Heroes/novels/downloads/Heroes_novel_052.pdf Heroes Novel #52, "Flying Blind"] ] 'Robots', in his opinion, are those who act normal and question nothing – the kind of people who do not "look up". 'Aliens' are unafraid to be different.

He asks Claire in which category she belongs, wondering where she fits in the social hierarchy of the school. He sees that she makes a point of not being noticed, and is intrigued.

West possesses the power of flight, and uses it to hover outside Claire's bedroom window, observing her. In "Lizards", while observing her through a window, West learns of Claire's ability when he witnesses her regrow a severed toe.

Claire and West strike up a relationship in the episode "Kindred". She is angry at his behavior towards her during biology class, but West literally sweeps her off her feet and flies them both to a beach, where they share a kiss.

West has a tattoo on his neck similar to the one found on Matt Parkman and Claude made by Noah Bennet. During a surprise visit to the Bennet home, West sees Claire's father and Claire tells him her father is the man that abducted him. West leaves in a frightened rage, flying away before Mr. Bennet can notice him.

In Cautionary Tales it is revealed that West's last name is Rosen. He captures Noah Bennet and asks him if Claire is in league with Noah. Noah replies that Claire lied to him about West, so she must care about him. Later, West helps Noah trade Elle Bishop for Claire. The episode ends with West holding Claire while she mourns the death of her father.

In "Powerless", West confronts Claire about her decision to reveal her power and Claire breaks up with him after a heated argument.

Ted Sprague

* Played by: Matthew John Armstrong
* First appeared in: "Nothing to Hide"
* Special ability: Induced radioactivity

Theodore "Ted" Sprague, born on August 28, 1973, he was first mistakenly identified by Matt Parkman and Agent Audrey Hanson as Sylar. Ted has the ability to generate and manipulate radiation, which he first discovers after being abducted by the Haitian.

Candice Wilmer

* Played by: Missy Peregrym (season 1) and Rachel Kimsey (season 2)
* First appeared in: "Company Man"
* Special ability: Illusion creation

Candice Wilmer is an agent of The Company, first introduced in the episode "Company Man". In Season 1, she is paired, for a short while, with Mr. Bennet and is seen using her powers to taunt multiple characters. After Bennet's betrayal to The Company is revealed at Candice's hands, however, she is seen operating on her own. Aiding Mr. Linderman in the kidnapping of Micah Sanders in ".07%", Candice is seen watching after Micah in "Landslide", in which she also guides him through rigging a voting machine to make Nathan Petrelli win an election for Congress. In the next episode and season finale, "How to Stop an Exploding Man", Candice is confronted and knocked out by Niki Sanders who, with D.L., came to New York for Micah.

During the summer hiatus between Seasons 1 and 2, a four-part graphic novel was published that revealed Candice's real name to be Betty, and that the slender appearance portrayed by Peregrym is another illusion she created.

Her next and final appearance is in the third episode of Season 2, "Kindred", in which she is portrayed by Rachel Kimsey. It is revealed in this episode that after she came to, Candice adopted another appearance and the name Michelle, took the wounded Sylar under someone else's instructions to a remote area, and cared for him there until she was killed by him. After she dies, she turns into her real self, a very overweight woman (illuminating an earlier exchange between her and Micah), leading Sylar to condemn her for trying to be something she isn't.

Casting

Missy Peregrym formerly worked with executive producers Greg Beeman and Jeph Loeb on "Smallville" and was excited to be able to audition for the role because of it. However, she felt her first audition was "one of [her] worst performances" and was surprised to get another reading the following Monday, after which she felt she did "a little better." [cite web|url=http://www.herosite.net/mpinterview.htm |title= Heroes' Newest Heroine: HeroSite Interviews Missy Peregrym |publisher=HeroSite.net |accessdate=2008-01-19] While filming, Peregrym stayed around set while the other actors played the illusions Candice cast in the show. The visual effects necessitated her to follow the other actors' exact actions as they filmed: from the parts where the viewer would see the illusion, to the parts where the viewer would see Candice or vice versa.cite web|url=http://www.quickstopentertainment.com/2007/05/04/trailer-park-interview-missy-peregrym/ |title=Trailer Park Interview: Missy Peregrym |publisher=Quickstopentertainment.com |accessdate=2008-01-19]

For Season 2, however, it became more difficult for Candice's character to be involved in the show. Peregrym was never contractually bound to "Heroes" for the second season, and after being cast in the show "Reaper" as a series regular, scheduling interfered with her availability to shoot her remaining scenes as Candice. This resulted in the writers' original plan for Candice and Sylar to have a multi-episode story arc being scrapped and the character getting killed off in her next episode. The producers attempted to collaborate with the producers of "Reaper" on shooting dates for the final episode in which Peregrym would appear, but although she agreed to work on a weekend, schedule changes for "Reaper" made this impossible. To work another actress into Candice's part and to explain the appearance change in the show, writer J.J. Philbin used exposition in her following line to Sylar: “I used to go by Candice. But ever since I dragged you off of Kirby Plaza, police are kind of looking for my old self. So, I went for a new look. What do you think? Too generic?” Rachel Kimsey then came in and her performance made a strong enough impression on writers and producers that they attempted to keep Candice, but couldn't.

In the future portrayed in "I Am Become Death" Knox works with other Heroes to hunt down Peter Petrelli, but his sadistic nature remains. After tracking Peter to Sylar's home, he feeds off the fear of Sylar's son, Noah, to gain the upper hand against the former serial killer.
