Some Heroes characters are twins or triplets. There are also some actors that have twins.



Maya and Alejandro

Maya and Alejandro were twins. According to the curandera, Maya was born first. The two were most likely aged between 25 and 30, before Alejandro's death at the hands of Sylar. Maya and Alejandro had complementing abilities, with Alejandro being able to cure people, and Maya, when they were plagued with Maya's ability. Maya and Alejandro were played by two unrelated actors, Shalim Ortiz, and Dania Ramirez.

Niki, Tracy, and Barbara

Niki, Tracy, and Barbara were triplets. It is unknown who their biological parents were, nor what their surname is. The three were injected with abilities by Dr. Zimmerman, the man who delivered them. Niki was given enhanced strength, Tracy was given freezing, and it is unknown what ability Barbara got. Zimmerman believed Tracy to be Barbara when he first met her. Tracy was unaware of her sisters until Zimmerman informed her of them. Micah, Jim McCann, Nathan, and Mohinder all thought that Tracy was Niki on first meeting her. It is unknown how much Hal Sanders knew about his daughter, or if Niki is actually of any relation to Jessica. Niki originally couldn't deal with her ability and developed a split personality. Barbara most likely kept in contact with Zimmerman, and was also associated with The German. All three characters are portrayed by the same actress, Ali Larter.

Piper and Debbie

Piper and Debbie were separated at birth by the Company. Piper was previously not aware of Debbie's existence until she had a dream. In the dream, Piper discovered that Debbie was forced to live in a Company facility. Debbie helps Piper escape. Piper's mother has no recollection of Debbie, but The Haitian could have been involved.

The Constrictor

In an online description, it was revealed that The Constrictor had a twin brother. The names of both the Constrictor and his twin are not known, nor is the brother's ability. The Constrictor's family is said to be protective of one another.


Similarly to twins and triplets, clones with the same gender have identical appearances. There are many clones that appear in Heroes.

Julien Dumont

Julien Dumont was a Company agent with the ability to clone himself. The clones were all identical to him. After his death, all his clones died simultaneously.


Evan was another man with the ability of cloning. He fought Adam Monroe in 1777, and fought him. Adam originally thought that Evan could regenerate, before he found out that Evan could actually produce a limitless amount of clones, all willing to destroy him. The clones all bore the same scar that Evan had.


Ryan Smith

Ryan Smith, who portrayed an Odessa deputy in Homecoming, has a twin sister named Ronette. He also has two siblings in his family, also twins.

Julie and Shawnie Costello

Julie and Shawnie Costello are real-life twins. The two portrayed twins in an illusion created by Michelle in Kindred. The two are also former WWE wrestlers.

Carlon Jeffery

Carlon Jeffery, who portrayed Damon Dawson in season two, has a real-life twin named Carla.

Shalim Ortiz

Although not a twin himself, Shalim Ortiz plays an actor with a twin and has a brother and sister who are twins.
