Sound absorption?

Emma's ability is similar to Sound absorption (hearing impaired), but more like Echolocation with sight (Extrasensory perception?) -- Mike the Man-child!

  • We can't say that because we don't know if her deafness is a consequence of her ability, if Peter goes deaf when he gets this, then we can say it. Intuitive Empath - Talk - Contributions 12:24, 1 August 2009 (EDT)

If she was deaf she wouldn't be listen to music on a portable. 50000JH

  • Maybe she likes to watch music, and/or not the outside world? -- Mike the Man-child!
  • Maybe her ability is just a more developed form of sound manipulation, since it was said she can manipulate what she sees. Green.gif AltesUTC CH
  • How can she visuals sound if she can't hear.50000JH
  • She's not listening to anything on her earphones - she wears them so people won't talk to her and find out she's deaf. She explains then when talking to the doctor. -- Mikebdoss

Power Name

  • I know these debates have been one giant clusterfuck after the other, but we're really left with no alternative. I don't think we should call her ability Synthesia because it wasn't given as a explicit name for her ability, just a condition with similar effects. Sound Visualization seems a better fit for me, but since an admin has already selected synthesia it's not likely to change anytime soon. What say you, heroeswiki? --Piemanmoo 00:22, 29 September 2009 (EDT)
    • Heroes Interactive:Ink says, "Emma's ability is a form of synesthesia". I agree it's not the best name, but it's the closest thing we have to an explicit name this week. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 01:16, 29 September 2009 (EDT)
      • Dang. I really hope someone high up on the Heroes ladder eventualy describes the power using another name. I'm in the camp of it being awkward because it's also the name of a condition, but since we have a source for it, I guess we're all stuck with it for now. --Piemanmoo 13:03, 29 September 2009 (EDT)
        • My sentiments, too. But since it hasn't even been 24 hours, I'd say let's sit and wait a bit. We're sure to learn more about the power next week. :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 13:12, 29 September 2009 (EDT)


  • It's not an ability. I have synesthetia. Synthetetes just percieve the world differently by picturing colors in our mind and most of us correlate colors with words and letters and numbers. at least that's me. Every synestete is different but for instance: I can't read that thing where you have to read the color of the world instead of the actual word. Like when reading Red. I wouldn't say that word is black, I'd say it's slightly orange with a green tint. u see? so we can take that off as an ability. Because thousands of people have synesthesia. --Jason Garrick 00:38, 29 September 2009 (EDT)
    • Similarly, I have enhanced memory when I get a good night's sleep, enhanced strength when I've got adrenaline pumping through my body, and empathy when I sit and listen to a friend. We really shouldn't worry about whether the condition exists in real life. The limits and abilities can be explained on the page. However, Heroes Interactive:Ink is the closest explicit source we have (that I know of). It says, "Emma's ability is a form of synesthesia". I think that's the best we're going to get this week. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 01:19, 29 September 2009 (EDT)
      • People have synesthesia their entire life. And if that's what the writer's say then they need to do better research. Emma doesn't have synesthesia because then most sounds near her would be making color like the color of Peter's voice. blue with red tint for me. :)--Jason Garrick 11:04, 29 September 2009 (EDT)
  • I've got some crossed senses, myself. While I'm glad that synesthesia's being depicted in a mainstream show, getting it a bit more well known, I'm a little insulted that it's being passed off as an evolved human ability. Evolved humans are supposed to be metaphors for real minorities, not real minorities passed off as metaphors. It's somewhat like how Black Lightning was a black superhero and his race was used as a part of his superhero identity, making it not quite as progressive as the creators probably intended. I really hope her synesthesia enables her to see the future or something. RyanGibsonStewart: Your "enhanced memory" doesn't turn you into a living search engine, your "enhanced strength" doesn't enable you to throw a man through a window, and your "empathy" is only empathy in the classic sense and would not enable you to successfully reproduce your friends' abilities. You're confusing real abilities/perceptions supposed to be magical abilities with magical abilities based off of real abilities. If her synesthesia doesn't have something else, something magical... I don't know. Bad Heroes. --Nogard 15:06, 29 September 2009 (EDT)
    • No, I'm not confusing real abilities with the supernatural. I'm simply pointing out that sometimes we use the names of real phenomena to name the supernatural abilities shown on Heroes. I am well aware that my empathy is nothing like the empathy shown on Heroes, or that my enhanced memory is nothing like Charlie's. My point (and maybe I made it poorly, for that I apologize) is that we often use real world names to name the abilities we see on Heroes. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 18:25, 29 September 2009 (EDT)
      • You made your point just fine, RGS. --Action Figure 14:49, 30 September 2009 (EDT)

Sound Visualization.

Ability: Sound Visualization. Simple enough, eh? Short, sweet, defines it without missing anything. The colors can be noted on the page.

On a discussion note, my friend and I got chills when she began playing the cello(?). It was such a cool concept and it was executed beautifully. It'd be a shitty power if she had hearing though. Probably would be quite annoying.--Riddler 01:00, 29 September 2009 (EDT)

  • You're absolutely right, the cello music was beautiful, and I'm really glad she didn't end up hearing. Ugh. My only objection to "sound visualization" is that Heroes Interactive:Ink says, "Emma's ability is a form of synesthesia". I think "sound visualization" would be a good redirect. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 01:20, 29 September 2009 (EDT)
  • I thought it was a truely beautiful moment, I was moved by it. Very well done on their part. (Admin 01:23, 29 September 2009 (EDT))
    • Ryan, the only problem I have with Synesthesia is that it's a psychological condition, not an ability. We don't call Charlie's ability "Savantism". While it was written in the higher canon source, I don't believe whoever was writing it was thinking too hard.--Riddler 02:19, 29 September 2009 (EDT)
      • Charlie's ability was once called eidetic memory, which is also a naturally occurring condition. (It was changed because there was no canon or near-canon source to support it.) But even empathy, enhanced strength, and crumpling are conditions that regular people can have, just like synesthesia. It's the limits and abilities we put on the page that turn it from a regular condition to an ability. I agree, it's not the best name we have, but it's really the best we have right now. And I have to disagree with you about it being written without much thought. All the SMS messages must be approved by the producers, including Joe Tolerico and others. In fact, there is quite a strict process for what is released and what isn't. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 08:57, 29 September 2009 (EDT)
  • I agree I love that scene so much. I personally believe it's Enhanced Synesthesia, like enhanced strength, anyone can be strong, but not as strong as in the show--Rod 21:20, 10 October 2009 (EDT)


Under the episode description for Emma, shouldn't it mention that Peter witnesses her playing the cello, and that he followed her when she fled the scene?

Ty Camden - 03:31, 29 September 2009 (EDT)

Deaf, Dumb?

She's not deaf, I've gathered that much from the scene with th doctor, but can't she also speak, didn't she shout at the doctor saying she didn't want to see their faces? Or does she use a hearing aid which is in the summary. Or is that just how she likes things? Quiet? --Fr0z3nB0nes 17:44, 29 September 2009 (EDT)

  • How exactly she's not deaf? She felt pretty deaf to me. Intuitive Empath - Talk - Contributions 17:53, 29 September 2009 (EDT)
  • Hearing aid? Where does it say that? And who says she's not deaf? I'm pretty sure she is...She probably can read lips. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 18:30, 29 September 2009 (EDT)
  • There is such a thing as reading lips. Dean 18:30, 29 September 2009 (EDT)
    • Yes, I know a deaf person myself, while she uses a hearing aid, she can (and mostly) reads lips. She is able to speak and communicates through that, but I think she reads lips more than uses sign language. You can usually tell when a person is deaf by the way they speak as well because its so different. Most deaf people can read lips.--WarGrowlmon18 21:59, 29 September 2009 (EDT)
      • My mistake, I didn't realize her mother (the doctor) was using sign language as well >_<--Fr0z3nB0nes 18:23, 13 October 2009 (EDT)

Mind if we use deaf?

Does anyone mind if we say she's deaf? Deafness is referred to as a hearing impairment by the hearing but people that are part of Deaf Culture like to use the terms deaf and hard of hearing. And clearly she is not hard of hearing. --Rudeboy37 23:42, 29 September 2009 (EDT)

  • Like I said, I personally know a deaf person (and she doesn't try to hide it, but is very good at reading lips and speaking although its obvious) and I agree that everything seems to point to her being totally deaf. In fact, I picked up on that very quickly. I say go for it.--WarGrowlmon18 23:51, 29 September 2009 (EDT)
    • Just curious, what's all this talk about lipreading for? She may or may not be able to read lips but was it ever in the episode? Maybe I missed something, but I don't remember her ever being a part of a conversation besides the one in the doctor's office (which the doctor signed the whole time).Rudeboy37 00:09, 30 September 2009 (EDT)
      • The doctor (played by the actress from One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, loved the movie, HATED her charchter in it) was simply using sign language to speak (apparently the actress knows it because her own parents are deaf while she's not) but that doesn't mean Emma can't lip read also. Most deaf people can as so few people know sign language. If someone can do sign language also, deaf people probably prefer to use it even if they can talk (as Emma was shown to be able to for a moment there) as its probably easier for them. I mean, imagine trying to talk when you can't hear what your saying??? That must be a difficult skill to master and probably one you wouldn't want to use if someone could communicate with you in sign language. I bet Emma could lip read, but just didn't as she didn't need to. My deaf friend can lip read and speak (I know because I knew her since middle school and while I know she can do sign language (I can't, in the words of Bruce Willis the only languages I speak are English and Bad English), she doesn't when around people that can't) but she probably doesn't if she doesn't have to. I simply think the doctor could sign so Emma had no reason to lip read. She wanted those requests in writting so she wouldn't have to reveal she's deaf (if she had to lip read or even speak it would be obvious as deaf people have that distinctive voice) which given what she said and her ear bud trick, is obviously what she wanted. I also think from the doctor's comment she could be a doctor if she wanted to, but doesn't want anyone's pity so she just does that job.--WarGrowlmon18 01:15, 30 September 2009 (EDT)
        • She's without question, deaf, but some people prefer "hearing impaired." Dunno which is politically correct. Regardless, on the lip reading note, the doctor was using sign language but was speaking as well to make it more efficient. Though they never explicitly say she was lipreading, I think she was when Peter was speaking to her, which is how she knew what to do. I could be wrong though. ON ANOTHER NOTE: I don't believe she was born deaf. When she spoke, there wasn't that muffled sound you usually hear when a deaf person speaks. That's just speculation, though.--Riddler 03:30, 30 September 2009 (EDT)
          • I agree with you. Given what her doctor said, I think she trained to be a doctor but didn't end up going for it when she became deaf. However, that lack of muffledness may just be the actress not being deaf. I'm not sure about that one, but it could be the actress is not deaf and thus she doesn't speak like a deaf person. Like I said, I personaly know a deaf person so I'm well aware of how they talk when they are able to.--WarGrowlmon18 13:04, 30 September 2009 (EDT)
            • As a note, Deanne Bray, the actress who plays Emma, is actually deaf. --Riddler 17:52, 30 September 2009 (EDT)
              • Actually we are sure she reads lips because she understood what the doctor said while being ausculted. My parents are both deaf and I can say she is really deaf because of the way she looks the cello, which isn't really usual. But she speaks very well, almost all people who meet my parents for the time don't really understant what they say.--ChocolatMenthe 15:11, 4 October 2009 (EDT)
  • Considering her ability, I'd say its a likely assumption that she is totally deaf. --Action Figure 14:51, 30 September 2009 (EDT)
  • I myself is a Deaf person. When our Deaf persons are "new" in a worksplace we do not want to talk with other people, because we do not want to get hurt. The question about Emma wearing i-pod is rather interesting. A way not to get involved because the person "are busy listen". Keep in mind that some ears may have such a damage in the nerves or cochlea that hearing-aids is no help. When talking with Deaf persons eyecontact is a very important part of any converasion - thats why Emma prefer that people must write they request (a simple way to do work correct because a few people make eyecontact.) About lipreading - yes, not everyone can lipread, but when you are grown up in a hearing community, you learn to develop the lipreading skill. With sign language as support, it just help a lot more. I am glad about the Deaf people in Heroes, thats just amazing! A another topic about Deaf and music... I love music - but more to watch people playing music, the passion, the "give yourself over to music"... Hearing impaired versus Deaf. If you are part of a Deaf culture you prefer the term Deaf, but if you are not part of the Deaf culture then those people do not mind "hearing impaired". Please appolize my inputs here. I'm totally new to wikid-editing.--Niellaufs 03:24, 1 October 2009 (EDT)

Speculation about her deafness.

With a character like this, there is bound to be tons of unintentional speculation. As a note, we have no idea if she was born deaf or became deaf over time/due to some accident. She spoke clearly without the muffled sound you usually hear when deaf people speak, which could indicate that she became deaf later in time. That in itself is speculation, but it's good to keep it in mind. On her page, someone wrote "She followed the colors, which allowed her to play beautiful music, even though she never learned how." This is speculation for a few reasons that intertwine. If she wasn't born deaf, it's quite possible that she knew how to play an instrument before she went deaf, and put it down when she did become deaf because she couldn't hear it. When she started seeing the colors, it's also possible that she played how she remembered and used the colors as a guide, or was simply fascinated by the colors. Again, this is all speculation, but the opposite of this, thinking she's born deaf, didn't know what she was playing, or never learned how, is all speculation as well, even if unintended. I'm not sure if what I said makes any sense, but that's all I can think of right now.--Riddler 03:38, 30 September 2009 (EDT)

Synesthesia doesn't do that!

So she smashed a hole in the drywall. That's not synesthesia. Is it sound manipulation? Are we gonna have another Knox-level fight over whether this is an existing power or a new one? Please tell me somebody has a plan.--Uncanny474 21:12, 12 October 2009 (EDT)

  • We probably are. After all, Echo and Jesse could both shoot sound blasts, while Emma just seems to be able to destroy anything her colors touch...--Gibbeynator 21:53, 12 October 2009 (EDT)
  • I think "Sound Manipulation" is a good bet. Knox is listed at having enhanced strength, even though he has a variant of it. Emma has a variant of sound manipulation, and so should be changed to sound manipulation.--TheArchivist
    • No. Emma doesn't have synesthesia. She has enhanced synesthesia. It's a different ability than the real life phenomenon, which apparently allows her to break walls. Those people who had sound manipulation could only create sounds from their mouths, and they never saw any unusual colors. Though Emma can do one of the same things that Echo and Jesse could do, she does not have the same ability as them. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:33, 12 October 2009 (EDT)
  • Yay! Just like the spoilers said... Emma would be able to have impact on what she sees. Yay! Green.gif AltesUTC CH
    • I agree with Ryan. It's more a case of ability homology then actually being the same ability. With enough practise Emma could probably manipulate and create sonic blasts as Echo and Jesse did, but her ability is rooted in her deafness. If she develops more of the characteristics of sound mainpulation, perhaps it can be moved then.Swm 05:18, 13 October 2009 (EDT)

Her enhanced sythesasia is obviously a real ability as Peter was able to replicate it.--WarGrowlmon18 13:58, 13 October 2009 (EDT)

  • Her enhanced synesthesia is obviously not connected to her deafness. Peter replicated it, but retained his ability to hear. Therefore, the ability has nothing to do with deafness. And the colors are sound. If she can manipulate them, then she can manipulate sound. Hence, "Sound manipulation". The powers seem to work almost exactely the same. It could be that she just has a higher control index (hence manipulating the sound around her) and a slight variant of that power. When Brian Davis struggles to move a coffee cup, and Sylar throws people across the room, that's not two different powers, that's the same power with two different levels of control. Same as this "synesthesia" thing.--Uncanny474 10:53, 14 October 2009 (EDT)
    • I think it's much like Daphne's ability. Daphne's ability manifested as a response to her subconscious desires and allowed her to walk despite her disability. Emma's power is reacting in the same way to other physiological conditions within her body. --User:Clairesxtwin48
  • I think it will be interesting to see where they take her power, she can obviously manipulate sound some how but it doesn't seem to be in the same way as sound manipulation, I suppose we'll find out over the next few episodes -- Jenx222 · U · T · C 11:22, 14 October 2009 (EDT)

Pretty Good Looking

For an older woman (probably in her 30's or so, Emma is pretty hot imo. Dean 01:36, 13 October 2009 (EDT)

The Cello

Did anyone else notice that the Cello was in a big blue box, VERY similar to the one Edgar was pushing away from the table at the carnie's breakfast? Methinks the Carnival is putting their fingers into many, many pies. PowerSink

  • I suspect you are correct, because Peter confirmed he didn't give it to her. Who else, then? Swm 05:09, 20 October 2009 (EDT)

Cello Part

Anyone knows what the song is Emma played twice in the series? -- (WaterRatj)

  • I think it was just original music they composed for the show. It didn't sound like any pieces for the cello I know. Finally, my obsession with Yo-Yo Ma pays off!--Clairesxtwin48 17:53, 26 January 2010 (EST)
  • Wasn't it the song they play during sprint commercials or something?--PJDEP - Need further explanation? 19:42, 26 January 2010 (EST)
  • Don't think so. There's a similarity there that I noticed, so I found both of them and compared. They've got some similar musical qualities, but it's not the same song.--Clairesxtwin48 20:01, 26 January 2010 (EST)


Is Emma a recurring character now? She has appeared in three episodes. Green.gif AltesUTC CH

Is Emma The Pied Piper?

I've noticed in both episodes where she played an instrument, people gathered around her and appeared to be in a hazy state...almost like they're completely relaxed and drawn to the sound. This happens during her cello-playing session in the park and when she played the piano in the hospital. Maybe her ability to make beautiful music that attracts or lures people. --DangerJim 10:51, 20 October 2009 (EDT)

  • She does manipulate sound at some degree, but I think she could play so beautiful because the colors helped her. Green.gif AltesUTC CH
  • I think after Upon This Rock/Let It Bleed, it's safe to say that, yes, Emma does have a Pied Piper twist to her power. And it seems likely that she's going to be forced to use it for ill-intent by Samuel! Distressing, to say the least! I foresee an interesting reversal of roles here; this time, it's Emma who's the unwitting catalyst for disastrous events, while Peter might be the one who can save her. It's Kirby Plaza all over again, with different people filling the various roles! --Clairesxtwin48 00:06, 5 January 2010 (EST)


Hang on a second, Emma did graduate from medical school, we saw her degree, how come she says she dropped out? Was she lying? Intuitive Empath - Talk - Contributions 14:14, 10 November 2009 (EST)

  • She graduated from college with a degree in Biomedicine. It was the same college Claire is going to. She probably graduated and then went on to medical school to actually become a doctor.--WarGrowlmon18 16:01, 10 November 2009 (EST)
    • She said she dropped out of her second year of residency. Resident doctors have graduated and are full-fledged Doctors. They've not completed their training, is all. Typically, you recieve your medical license after one year of residency so she's probably legally able to administer medicine, albeit with supervision. --Getbrett 18:30, 10 November 2009 (EST)

Samuel ability ?

I guess that Emma is the key character of this season. I feel that her ability is the one Samuel needs to reach the maximum power he could have, in order to achieve his twisted goals. Anyone had that feeling? --Egyptian 18:02, 1 December 2009 (EST)

  • Nope. Seeing sounds and controlling earth have no logical connections between them. If anything, he'll try to get her to join so Peter will join. Intuitive Empath - Talk - Contributions 18:08, 1 December 2009 (EST)
    • I remember at the end of a previous episode Hysterical Blindness, she was playing Cello and while playing, she suddenly got very intense and the lights that she creates generate a blast of light and sound that damages her wall. That means that her ability is not that weak or negative and I guess that there are other uncovered dimensions for that strange ability. --Egyptian 18:19, 1 December 2009 (EST)
      • Mystery Poster, I agree with Intuitive Empath. Samuel's only uses for her would be to get Peter to join and to simply increase his power. -Vampirate68 | Talk | Contribs | 18:26, 1 December 2009 (EST)
        • While I tend to agree that it's unlikely, I would applaud the writers if Emma's ability turned out to be crucial to Samuel. It would be very creative.--Referos 18:40, 1 December 2009 (EST)
          • Most probably you are both right (Intuitive Empath and Vampirate68), but I feel it will be too expected (and disappointing for me) that Peter will be the missing ability for Samuel. I feel it will be better to let Peter work on stopping Samuel after Samuel already starts to gain his ultimate power. --Egyptian 18:53, 1 December 2009 (EST)
  • After seeing the previews of Close To You, it really looks like Egyptian may be at least partially right. Emma is definitely a key component in Samuel's plan. --Clairesxtwin48 00:09, 5 January 2010 (EST)


So she expects Peter to believe that she drew him halfway across the city to her apartment by playing a damn cello, yet she refuses to believe that Peter dreamt a future where she caused serious trouble with the very same cello. Seems pretty one-sided to me.--PJDEP - Need further explanation? 22:44, 11 January 2010 (EST)

  • I wouldn't say that she didn't believe Peter. It seemed more that she was distraught over what he had done, and didn't think that a dream, precognitive or not, was justification enough to smash the most precious thing she owned. There's a really deep bond between a musician and their instrument (trust me, I would know!), and when he broke the cello he was destroying something really important to her. She has more than a right to be angry at that moment, and not necessarily listen to his explanation. Because let's face it, he could have at least tried to explain BEFORE acting like a rash idiot. --Clairesxtwin48 13:35, 20 January 2010 (EST)


Isn't it weird that her hearing impairment is not mentioned in the article? --Boom D  14  21:20, 26 January 2010 (EST)

  • Check under Ink.--Catalyst · Talk · HL 21:32, 26 January 2010 (EST)
  • Yeah, it was talked about pretty frequently after her initial debut on the show.--Clairesxtwin48 22:33, 26 January 2010 (EST)

Next Season

Let's just assume that there's going to be a next season for now. Where do we see Emma's story going? Is she going to become part of the main cast, or is she going to get relegated to GNs the way some people have been? I can't see them just dropping the character, she's too well-liked. And she's been tied into Peter's storyline really deeply, and I have a feeling they might take the opportunity to advance that relationship. --Clairesxtwin48 00:19, 15 February 2010 (EST)

  • I really hope they bring her back, Deanne Bray did a marvelous job as Emma. Intuitive Empath - Talk - Contributions 09:49, 15 February 2010 (EST)
    • She was really good, and if they bring Peter back next season then they have to bring her back, you can just see them hitting it off. I suppose she's finish her medical training. --mc_hammark 14:31, 15 February 2010 (EST)
      • Exactly! The two of them are so good together, and Milo and Deanne have SO much chemistry, I can't imagine them not bringing her back, preferably as main cast this time! --Clairesxtwin48 14:45, 15 February 2010 (EST)
        • As long as she doesn't get shot by a heroin addict or lost in another dimension, I expect that she'll return. I wonder how she'll deal with her ability though, it's quite powerful.--PJDEP - Need further explanation? 15:13, 15 February 2010 (EST)
          • I think she could experiment a bit. She knows she can lure people and send shockwaves, she could try putting other emotions to see what she gets. Intuitive Empath - Talk - Contributions 15:18, 15 February 2010 (EST)
          • Exactly my thoughts! If she can do the zany sound-streak thing when she's afraid/upset and call people to her, what would other emotions (anger, elation, love, etc.) yield? I'm interested to find out. Though something tells me she's not planning on playing the cello any time soon. Just as a hunch... --Clairesxtwin48 17:20, 15 February 2010 (EST)
            • Emma may appear in any more episodes Recurring be-Adamhiro 11:48, 05 March 2010(LT)
              • She'll be killed off or moved off screen at some point. Just like all the other female heroes. Seems the only way for a girl to live on Heroes is to be a reforming murderer: Angela or Tracy (although it didn't save Nikki) or Claire. Sorry people, Emma's on her way out just like Gretchen.--Blood69 22:21, 22 March 2010 (EDT)

Is there a reason that this is in the notes section and not the other relatives section of her infobox?--PJDEP - Talk - Polls and Opinions 23:59, 2 March 2010 (EST)

Denied Medical School

Do you think that Samuel has something to do with her denial. He could easily manipulate the ink on the page, and it seems the kind of thing he'd do to make her come to the carnival. --mc_hammark 16:08, 7 March 2010 (EST)

  • Nah, could be but I dont think so, I think that it would've showed that Samuel did that before the end of this season.-- Yoshi | Talk | Contributions 16:44, 7 March 2010 (EST)
