Gray is the son of a watchmaker who carried on his father's trade
for several years before being approached for study by Dr. Chandra Suresh
, who termed Gray his "patient zero
." Under Dr. Suresh's inadvertent tutelage, Gray realized he had more than one anomalistic ability; in fact, he came to understand that he could absorb
of others. The specific mechanism of acquiring these powers remain unclear, but we understand that it requires the removal of the victim's brain matter
. While under Company
protection, study into this mechanism began, but Gray escaped before our scientists could determine Gray's precise manner of acquiring abilities from his victims' brain
With the incorporation of new abilities into his genetic structure, Gray assumed the name Sylar and began killing individuals on Chandra Suresh's list of "specials."
We captured Gray after the Union Wells High School incident. FBI Agent Audrey Hanson and Matt Parkman's investigation led them to an unsuccessful raid on Primatech Paper while Sylar was in our custody. Under observation, Sylar proved uncooperative and an incident with Eden McCain/Sarah Ellis led to her death. Despite our best efforts, Sylar escaped from our custody before our study was completed. Gray's current location is unknown and death should not be presumed.
] Gray's overbearing mother
pressed on him the notion that he was "special" and meant for more than his family's middle-class existence. When he failed to live up to expectations, he fell into the family trade
as a watchmaker and grew increasingly frustrated with his life.
When he began manifesting abilities
, he realized he could use them to fulfill his deep-seated desire to be "special" and thus prove his worth to his demanding mother. However, infusion of foreign DNA into Sylar's genome has corrupted his mind and moral compass
. He began seeing himself as vastly superior to average people, which gave him--in his mind--the moral authority to kill
at will. He became sociopath and singularly focused on gaining more abilities
. If still alive with his powers intact, his desire to be increasingly "special" will surely compel him to seek out additional victims
. Extreme caution must be exercised if encountering Sylar.
