Primal rage
IStory ch1 L5 guy3.jpg
Ricardo's eyes glow red when using his ability
Held by: Ricardo Silva
Ability to: Bring about uncontrollable rage in others

Primal rage is the ability to induce an instinctive and uncontrollable rage in others, as well as suppressing their conscious thinking.


  • Ricardo Silva (a.k.a "Red Eye") is the only character known to have this ability.


When using his ability, Ricardo's eyes glow red. While the full extent of his ability is still unknown, he appears to be able to affect those in his proximity. Once affected by this ability, the victim appears to be overcome by an uncontrollable rage, fear, and sense of survival, which causes him or her to attack those nearby. The victim's rationality is also affect: most do not remember well what happened to them (Operation Splinter).

According to Mohinder, this ability operates by strengthening the instinctive, animal part of the mind, while weakening the higher-form, conscious aspect of the mind. He suggest that if the cognitive functions of a person were impaired, Ricardo would be able to use his ability much more easily, allowing him to transform crowds into angry mobs (Operation Bad Blood).



  • A Pinehearst scientist suggests that Ricardo's ability works by releasing pheromones. It appears that he was not fully affected by this power because he had a cold.
