Gabriel Gray is a serial killer wanted by the FBI, the Company, and known to many of the Evolved in New York as a murderer who viciously steals the powers of other Evolved. He has moved throughout the country stealing other evolved human's abilities to take for himself, growing stronger with each power he obtains. He is currently in New York City, taking advantage of the city's vast population to seek out other Evolved to kill and steal abilities from. Having turned his back on that life, he has taken up his old watchmaker job again and currently runs his watchshop, Gray & Sons, in Brooklyn. Gabriel became a monk and is now celibate in the middle of nowhere, residing in some monastery.


Gabriel Gray was the son of a watchmaker who had a desire to be special. To be different. He wished that one day someone would come and tell him that his family was not his real family. Lo and behold, however, the son of a watchmaker became a watchmaker. It wasn't until he was contacted by Chandra Suresh did his dream come true— he was different. He was special. He had a very special power, one that set him apart from normal humans and other Evolved. He had the power to take other's abilities. He knew what made them tick. Events eventually led Gabriel to become a monster and begin using his ability to steal the powers of others. Adopting the name Sylar, he began a quest to collect as many powers from others as possible.




Intuitive Aptitude

Intuitive aptitude is the superhuman ability used to analyze complex systems and intuitively understand how they work without special education or training. Gabriel once used this power to determine how other anomalistic abilities work, and used it to his advantage to steal other's powers and use them for himself. These days, much like before he became a serial killer, he uses it to fix watches.


Being a serial killer, one doesn't make many relationships. However, with reforming, Gabriel has formed the loose bonds of friendship with a few people.
