Chandra Suresh/Season One
For more about Chandra Suresh, see the main article.
Mohinder's grandmother tells a young Mohinder stories of Kali, but Chandra refutes them; he believes in science over religion. A present day Mohinder goes to his father's place of employment in New York and views the cab in which his father was killed.
Eden McCain, Chandra's former neighbor, joins Mohinder in searching Chandra's research, which Mohinder believes was the catalyst for his father's murder. Mohinder listens to a message in which Chandra refutes Sylar's claims that his "hunger" was caused by Chandra.
As Mohinder dozes off at the desk in his father's office at Chennai University, he has a vivid dream of his last conversation with his father. Chandra is arguing with his son, expressing how he believes his theories are correct. Mohinder replies it is becoming harder to "cover for him", referring that his theories are generating displeasure at the university. Chandra tells him he'll see who the fool will be.
Mohinder's location suddenly changes and now he watches Chandra admit that his plan to go to New York City may be a bad idea after all. His wife tells Chandra that if he doesn't go then it will consume him. Chandra expresses concern that Mohinder will hate him for it. Chandra suggests that maybe he should stay for Mohinder's sake, but his mother convinces him not to.
The attacker grabs Chandra's head, smashing it against the glass window. In the mêlée, the killer breaks his watch. Chandra is killed after his neck is snapped.
Mohinder has another dream, in which he sees Chandra trying to persuade Nirand about Sanjog's abilities. The setting of the dream shifts and Mohinder watches a conversation he had with his father where he tried to offer his assistance with the research but was rebuffed by his father.
Later, Mohinder's mother tells him that she heard from Mira that he turned down the job offer and is returning to New York City. She tells him that Chandra didn't tell him that he succeeded in finding the evolved humans because he wanted Mohinder to live his own life. Mohinder tells his mother that he's going to find them and tell them who they are and warm them of the dangers. His mother worries about who will protect him.
Chandra tracks down Gabriel Gray at his watch repair shop. They discuss human evolution and he gives Gabriel a copy of his book, Activating Evolution. In Chandra's apartment, Chandra and Gabriel discuss running tests on Gabriel's brain, and Chandra notes that everything the human body does is controlled in the brain. Later, after running tests, Chandra seems doubtful of Gabriel's powers.
After Gabriel leaves, Mr. Bennet, whom Chandra telephoned earlier, arrives. They discuss their respective daughters, Shanti and Claire. Chandra confesses that Shanti's genetic mutation was the portal to his study of human evolution. He hopes that "no one would suffer as she did."
Mohinder tries in earnest to continue Chandra's research. He remembers that Chandra identified Gabriel Gray as Patient Zero, so he takes spinal fluid sample from Sylar. He realizes the key to his father's research. Sylar tells Mohinder that Chandra used to confide things in him, including things about Shanti. Sylar says that Mohinder was always seeking approval from Chandra, but Sylar gave Chandra the stimulation he needed. Sylar calls Chandra a parasite. Mohinder attempts to avenge his father's murder by shooting Sylar, albeit unsuccessfully.
