Ability negation system
|Ability negation system|
A control unit for the system
|First mentioned:||A Clear and Present Danger|
|Owned by:||Building 26, |
|Current status:||Newer versions still in use|
The system was originally devised by Nathan's agents at Building 26. This original version consists of drugs and an intranasal administration apparatus that incapacitates evolved humans and prevents them from using their abilities. It is not known which kinds of drugs are delivered by the device. In addition, the system has a central control unit with a keypad, normally attached to the evo's chest.
After the revelation of evolved humans to the general public, the system became widespread out of necessity. The Los Angeles Police Department has access to a version of the device similar to Building 26's.
Renautas also has their own version of the device; theirs is more streamlined, consisting of a simple nasal plug that administers the drug and an internal battery. There is no central control unit.
Evolved humans rigged with the system, including Claire, Peter, Hiro, Matt, Tracy, and Mohinder, are inspected by Nathan and Danko at an airplane hangar. The nasal tube is removed from Claire's nose and she is allowed to go, but she sneaks back into the plane.
Tracy is re-captured after the crash, and is re-drugged.
After leaving him to be captured by agents, Sylar returns to help Luke. Sylar emerges from the back of the van, dressed as one of the team, having killed them all. He recovers a laptop and rescues Luke, who has a nasal tube inserted.
In a room marked "Human Resources" within Building 26 many evolved humans lie sedated on hospital beds, the system administering the drugs. After Tracy breaks free, she removes the drugs from Mohinder and Matt who also frees Daphne.
In a black van heading down the Baltimore/Washington Parkway, Hiro is disguised as an agent and Ando is handcuffed and drugged. Hiro reaches out his foot to touch Ando's, then freezes time. He then removes the drug shunt from Ando's nose.
Phoebe manages to escape and remove the negation system.
