The following fan theories are about Charles Deveaux.
For help on adding theories, see the help section.
|Charles was the father of D.L. Hawkins and grandfather to Micah Sanders.||None||+ The lives of D.L. and Niki were supposedly manipulated by Linderman in the hopes of arranging Micah's birth. Charles has presumably known Linderman for decades and may be a willing participant in the breeding of evolved humans.|
+ D.L.'s father is unknown and Simone's mother is unknown.
|Arthur Petrelli stole Charles' ability.||Charles displayed telepathy in 1961 but not once in all of season 1.
Arthur stole telepathy from someone.
|- In season 1, he still knew Peter was there when no-one else did-perhaps by reading his mind. Also, he said something about being able to see love in him, or something like that.|
+ The sound effect used for when Charles uses telepathy is the same sound effect for when Arthur uses telepathy.
+ If Charles had his ability in Season 1, Peter would have absorbed it similar to how he absorbed his mother's precognitive dreaming.
• It is possible that Arthur absorbed the power through empathy, either from Maury or Charles, allowing Charles to retain the ability up to his death.
+ Having two members who were only telepaths in the Company doesn't make sense.
|Charles is present in Peter's mind.||Peter dreamed of Charles shortly after he died.||+ He could be using telepathy to mentally visit Peter in his dreams.|
|Charles could use his telepathy to access precognition like Matt Parkman can.||None||+ Simone tells Peter that when Charles awoke from his coma, he had a dream where he was flying and saw the world in pain (Nothing to Hide). This seems to reflect the future that was supposed to have occurred in that time line.|
