The following fan theories are about the compass.
For help on adding theories, see the help section.
|Sylar will fix the compass.||None||+ He has the ability which helps him in repairing broken things.|
|The compass is related with Claire's wind chime somehow.||None||+ Both are obviously related with evolved humans. One calls an evolved human and other only works with evolved humans.|
|Certain compasses work for certain people.||None||+ In Orientation, just before Samuel threw Joseph's compass in his grave, it did not move.|
+ However, Samuel's compass worked for him. So maybe only Joseph's compass worked for him. And maybe the compass in Danko's bank account works for only Peter (a reason why Samuel wanted him).
|Someone at the carnival has the ability to imbue objects with supernatural abilities.||None||+ This would explain the compass' erratic behavior and significance.|
- Mohinder built his own compass.
|The compass can detect the force between evolved humans Chandra Suresh discovered in Coyote Sands.||None||+ It would explain why it seems to work only with evolved humans.|
+ If the compass pointed Tracy towards the carnival, it would make sense, as there are lots of evolved humans there, Chandra said that when evolved humans are near each other, the force is magnified. It could work like a magnetic pole for the compass.
|The compass is a symbolism of moral ambiguity.||In one interview, Sendhil Ramamurthy states that Mohinder's "moral compass" always points North.||+ Moral ambiguity is a trademark of the show.|
|The compass points to Samuel Sullivan.||None||+ Mohinder was lead to the carnival by the compass.|
+ The force emanates from and between all evolved humans. Analogous with magnetism, the compass points long 'field lines' of this force. As Samuel's power is proportionate somehow to this force, it could be argued that he is somehow drawing the force from those around him to him, making him the 'magnetic North' of the special force.
