Matt Parkman is one of the prisoners on-board Flight 195. He was unmasked by Claire Bennet.
When Daphne returns with Claire, she and Matt have a happy reunion. Matt insists that Daphne stay with him but she decides that she will do a quick recon before escaping with the others. Before Daphne can leave, she is shot by an agent. Driven by grief, Matt gets inside the agent's head and forces him to kill his fellow agents. Matt then escapes with the other prisoners.
Matt has the ability to hear and manipulate the thoughts of others, induce illusions into the minds of others and erase or manipulate memories. He used his power to implant thoughts into an agent's head, driving him to murder his comrades.
