Sylar is the main antagonist of the American TV show Heroes. His real name is Gabriel and he used to work as a clockmaker. He, along with many others evolved and gained superhuman powers like telekinesus, instant regeneration and many more. Sylar's power is to assimilate others powers by murdering them, cutting their head open and removing the brain. His ultimate goal is to kill everyone with powers and assimilate those powers. In the season finale of season 1 however he is stabbed through the heart by a sword. However he surviveswhen he is rescued and hdden in Mexico. But Sylar being Sylar, he kills his resuer in hope to gain her power of illusion. But he was still injured so he failed to take her power. He then hitched a ride with another girl and her brother who also had abilities. The girl, Maya, cried black tears and everyone in the area around her also cried these tears and died. Her brother was the only one that could survive her power though, so he stayed with her. They were going to New York with Sylar (not knowing he was a serial killer) but when they arrived he had come for regenarative blood (from Claire, someone with the Instant Regeneration ability) and when it was injected into him he healed and regained all his former powers. He then took Claire's power, but seeing as she was immortal, she lived.
