Name:Sylar
Birthdate:Sep 28
Location:New York, New York, United States of America
» the character
Gabriel Gray (better known as Sylar) is one of the Big Bads from the Heroes fandom. He's telekinetic, precognative, and cryokinetic. He can liquify matter, possesses an eidetic memory, and has hearing so finely tuned he can tell when people are lying or when the weather's about to change. He can induce radioactivity in himself and make things go boom or, with the same power, he can create an EMP that can knock out all the lights in a building. He can turn things to gold, read the psychic impressions of an object through physical contact, and he also knows what makes you tick. Literally. Oh, yeah--and he's immortal.

In his free time, Sylar enjoys ice cream, Indian geneticists sociopathic blondes, and senselessly murdering people with supernatural abilities so he can claim them as his own. He's not much of a people person, having spent his life as a watchmaker before his first murder, but as long as you show him respect? He'll probably be decent enough to you. Particularly if it turns out you have something he wants.

And, since there are so many other Sylar players out there, it should be noted that this version is not a case of Multiple Personality Disorder. He's one person and one person only. He may refer to Gabriel Gray being dead, since he severely dislikes who he used to be and the use of that name, but that's who he is.

» the verses
Since Sylar is a member of a couple of different communities, I'm going to attempt to give a brief rundown of each universe I write him in here. Inactive verses can be found here. Entries, for your convenience, will always be tagged with what verse they're written in.

Carnivale - An AU PSL with [info]capableof_both and [info]offering_hope. A week after the events of Tabula Rasa (4x06), and new guest shows up at the Sullivan Brothers Carnival -- Mohinder Suresh. Thinking that he can use Mohinder to reawaken Sylar's memories, Samuel convinces Mohinder to stay and pushes the pair together. The question is, will things go as Samuel planned or will this just be an opportunity for Mohinder and Sylar to make a fresh start together?

Known Abilities: Intuitive aptitude, telekinesis, shattering, cryokinesis, eidetic memory, matter liquification, enhanced hearing, precognition, induced radioactivity, rapid cellular regeneration, alchemy, clairsentience, sound manipulation, electricity manipulation, lie detection, shapeshifting, and disintegration.

Canon - Just what it sounds like. Though it should be noted that when new episodes of the show start airing in September, anything with spoilers will be behind a cut.

Known Abilities: Intuitive aptitude, telekinesis, rapid cellular regeneration, alchemy, clairsentience, sound manipulation, electricity manipulation, lie detection, imprinting, shapeshifting, disintegration, flight, and empathy.

Canon (Diverted) - A semi-canon compliant PSL with [info]capturedworlds. After the events of Dual (3x13), Sylar has the piece of glass removed from his head by a photojournalist by the name of Melissa Talmadge. Turns out she has an ability, but he refrains from killing her, first as a favor for her saving his life and then so that he can use her to find his real family. Slowly but surely, however, Melissa's managing to break down the stoic bastard facade Sylar has erected around himself and getting to know the man behind the killer.

Known Abilities: Intuitive aptitude, telekinesis, shattering, cryokinesis, eidetic memory, matter liquification, enhanced hearing, precognition, induced radioactivity, rapid cellular regeneration, alchemy, clairsentience, sound manipulation, electricity manipulation, and lie detection.

Canon (Five Years Gone) - Again, sort of self explanatory. An alternate time line based off of the first season episode, Five Years Gone (1x20). New York is a wasteland, five years after it became ground zero for a nuclear explosion. People with super human abilities are being hunted by Matt Parkman and Homeland Security. And Sylar is posing as President Nathan Petrelli.

Known Abilities: Intuitive aptitude, telekinesis, shattering, cryokinesis, eidetic memory, matter liquification, enhanced hearing, precognition, induced radioactivity, flight, phasing, rapid cellular regeneration, and illusion generation.

Canon (I Am Become Death) - Another easy one! An alternate time line based off of the third season episode, I Am Become Death (3x04). I'm going to avoid giving much detail on this verse, since it's still considered spoilery, but let's just say that Sylar is going by Gabriel again here, and living a relatively normal life.

Known Abilities: Intuitive aptitude, telekinesis, rapid cellular regeneration, alchemy, clairsentience, sound manipulation, precognition, and induced radioactivity.

Choices - An AU panfandom pseudo-game with lots of involved What started as a simple, albeit tense, meeting with Mohinder Suresh in a coffee shop, months after the events of Powerless (2x11) turned out to something life-changing for Sylar. Now, he's slowly walking the road to redemption, has realized he has two brothers and a niece, and is maintaining a romantic relationship with Mohinder. Oh, and he's also BFFs with Adam Monroe and Julian Sark. Know fear. Also know that this is Sylar's main verse.

Known Abilities: Intuitive aptitude, telekinesis, shattering, cryokinesis, eidetic memory, matter liquification, enhanced hearing, precognition, induced radioactivity, rapid cellular regeneration, alchemy, telepathy, clairsentience, empathic mimicry, enhanced senses and reflexes, super strength via fear, clairvoyance, bone spike protrusion, dynamic camouflage, pyrokinesis, and hemokinesis.

Dangerous Game - An AU PSL with [info]its_notluck following the events of Building 26 (3x16) and set five years into the future. For the last five years, Sylar and Claire have been stalking each other, meeting up every so often to try and kill the other as part of a sick game they invented. The game turned less fatal when Nathan Petrelli and his hunter, Emile Danko--both still working together and hunting evolved humans--started trying to catch them, however. And now they're working together to bring them down, all the while denying that they might actually care about each other.

Known Abilities: Intuitive aptitude, telekinesis, shattering, cryokinesis, eidetic memory, matter liquification, enhanced hearing, precognition, induced radioactivity, rapid cellular regeneration, alchemy, clairsentience, sound manipulation, electricity manipulation, lie detection, microwave emission, puppet mastery, shapeshifting, and deception.

Do No Harm -

Known Abilities: Intuitive aptitude, telekinesis, rapid cellular regeneration, alchemy, clairsentience, sound manipulation, electricity manipulation, lie detection, imprinting, shapeshifting, disintegration, and flight.

Don't Rightly Die - A Heroes/Firefly crossover played out in [info]dontrightly_die. A spin-off of Choicesverse, it's five hundred years in the future, and most of Sylar's friends are still alive either through science or genetics. That doesn't make this a happy ending, though, circumstance still threatening to tear them apart. And between the fact that everyone fought on different sides on the Unification War and the recent revelation that Adam and Mohinder were behind the Pax and the Reavers? Things could end very badly indeed.

Known Abilities: Intuitive aptitude, telekinesis, shattering, cryokinesis, eidetic memory, matter liquification, enhanced hearing, precognition, induced radioactivity, rapid cellular regeneration, alchemy, telepathy, clairsentience, empathic mimicry, enhanced senses and reflexes, super strength via fear, clairvoyance, bone spike protrusion, prophetic dreams, electricity manipulation, and pyrokinesis.

Double Lives -

Known Abilities: Intuitive aptitude, telekinesis, rapid cellular regeneration, alchemy, clairsentience, sound manipulation, electricity manipulation, lie detection, imprinting, shapeshifting, disintegration, and flight.

Grace the Tide - A PSL with [info]not_myfirstday and played out of [info]grace_thetide. Rather than killing Elle on the beach in The Eclipse part 2 (3x11), Sylar let Elle go and continued to play out canon up to and including Duel (3x13). After surviving the fire at Hartsdale and rather than trying to track down his real parents, however, Sylar decided that he needed to run to someone who could help him--or at least stroke his ego. And considering the fact that Mohinder beat his head in, the last time he saw him, and he was worried about Elle, what with the news of people like them being rounded up, he went for her. Awkward for both of them, maybe, but he missed her more than he lets on.

Known Abilities: Intuitive aptitude, telekinesis, rapid cellular regeneration, alchemy, clairsentience, sound manipulation, electricity manipulation, lie detection, and imprinting.

Just a Little Lie -

Known Abilities: Intuitive aptitude, telekinesis, rapid cellular regeneration, alchemy, clairsentience, sound manipulation, electricity manipulation, lie detection, imprinting, shapeshifting, disintegration, flight, and molecular fusion.

Might've Beens - A PSL with [info]capableof_both set the night before Dale Smither's death in Unexpected (1x16). Instead of getting himself and 'Zane' two hotel rooms, Mohinder Suresh only gets one, preventing Sylar from murdering Dale for her ability. Sylar, naturally, is furious, but little does he know his failure to kill the mechanic might save him from being exposed as a wanted man any time in the future.

Known Abilities: Intuitive aptitude, telekinesis, shattering, cryokinesis, eidetic memory, and matter liquification.

New Beginnings - A PSL with [info]capableof_both. Following what Matt did to him at the end of An Invisible Thread (3x25), Sylar has been living as Nathan Petrelli for the last two months. Unfortunately, however, his true personality has been trying to resurface, and as such 'Nathan' has been experiencing things ranging from hallucinations of the killer to weird instances of deja vu that he can't explain. He doesn't know what's going on--nor does he realize that everything that's happened to him regarding Sylar has been in his head--but his recently started relationship with Mohinder seems to at least be making things easier. Who knows how long it will be before he realizes who he is, however.

Known Abilities: Intuitive aptitude, telekinesis, rapid cellular regeneration, alchemy, clairsentience, sound manipulation, electricity manipulation, lie detection, imprinting, shapeshifting, disintegration, and flight.

Open - Canon compliant up until the end of Season Two with one exception. Here there be pan-fandom. In this verse, Sylar's had drinks Ennis del Mar. He's shared brain teasers with the Riddler. He's offered to fix Julian Sark's watch. That sort of thing. You get the picture.

Known Abilities: Intuitive aptitude, telekinesis, shattering, cryokinesis, eidetic memory, matter liquification, enhanced hearing, precognition, induced radioactivity, rapid cellular regeneration, alchemy, telepathy, and shadow manipulation.

Post-Paradisa - A PSL with [info]capableof_both. Back from [info]paradisa with no memory of what went on there, Sylar continued to play out the events of canon until the events of Exposed (3x18). After leaving Luke Campbell, Sylar followed his father's trail to Building 26 where he found Mohinder Suresh instead. For some strange reason even he couldn't explain, he felt compelled to free the geneticist and help him escape, and every since then, the two have been experiencing vivid dreams about living together, happily, in a castle somewhere.

Known Abilities: Intuitive aptitude, telekinesis, shattering, cryokinesis, eidetic memory, matter liquification, enhanced hearing, precognition, induced radioactivity, rapid cellular regeneration, alchemy, clairsentience, sound manipulation, electricity manipulation, and lie detection.

Primatech v2 - An AU verse, in which Peter Petrelli went back in time to stop Kensei from going evil. Peter stayed with Kensei and together, they did all sorts of amazing things. They founded the Company and kept it from being a group of backstabbing, plotting, morally gray individuals. They destroyed the Shanti virus in the bud, thus saving Shanti Suresh's life. And, most importantly, they stopped Gabriel from ever becoming Sylar. So (gasp, shock, horror), he's relatively sane if not socially awkward.

Known Abilities: Intuitive aptitude

Saints and Sinners - A spin off of Choicesverse with [info]fromheavencame, and as such, nothing that happens in this verse effects anyone playing in Choices and vice versa. Somewhere during the events of Choices, Sylar ran across a double of himself who was still living as Gabriel Gray. Interested, the two met for coffee and chatted, and Sylar was surprised to find that Gabriel was so very much like him and yet so very different--largely due to the fact that he'd already met Peter Petrelli and the two of them were dating, apparently not blood related in Gabriel's version of events. Since then, Sylar has waffled back and forth between trying to help his younger self avoid making the same mistakes he did and trying to see how fast he can make him just as insane as he is.

Known Abilities: Intuitive aptitude, telekinesis, shattering, cryokinesis, eidetic memory, matter liquification, enhanced hearing, precognition, induced radioactivity, rapid cellular regeneration, alchemy, telepathy, clairsentience, empathic mimicry, enhanced senses and reflexes, super strength via fear, clairvoyance, flight, laser emission, pyrokinesis, teleportation, and seismic blasts.

Three Musketeers - An AU PSL based vaguely out of second season. Peter never makes it to Adam to go and 'save the world' from the Shanti Virus. Instead, he runs into Claude, who's been looking for him after the events at Kirby Plaza, and a young girl named Erin Williams who can read minds by touching people. And Sylar? Well, he's stalking Erin for her ability, naturally, but he doesn't count on a fight. Either from Erin or her new friends.

Known Abilities: Intuitive aptitude, telekinesis, shattering, cryokinesis, eidetic memory, matter liquification, enhanced hearing, precognition, induced radioactivity, and illusion generation.
