Who commands the loyalty of the man known only as "the Haitian"? Though he partnered for years with Noah Bennet, the man in horned-rimmed glasses, the Haitian turned against him to aid Claire, Bennet's daughter. Then, he seemed to betray both to Claire's grandmother, Angela Petrelli. Does he take orders from her ... or answer ultimately to an even higher power?

Summary

As the Haitian erases Matt Parkman's memory, he begins thinking of what it feels like to have memories erased. He is reminded of his father, Guillame, back in his home village in Haiti.

Guillame is revered by his people for the protection he provides and the love he shares. The villagers believe Guillame is special, and has unique powers. When the Tonton Macoutes are sent by Duvalier to terrorize the village, Guillame keeps the evildoers at bay. He uses his gift of "bliss and horror," causing the militiamen to vomit and be overcome. Guillame is shocked when his power is suddenly disabled. He wonders what his son has done to him.

Character Appearances

Notes

  • It Takes a Village, Part 1 is largely influenced by Vodou. Guillame is the Houngan of his village, believed to have been chosen by the Loa. When confronted with danger, Guillame says, "I walk with Legba and Ogun. I lay with Samara and Delun." For more information on this traditionally Haitian religion, see Vodou.
  • In an interview, Joe Kelly states that the It Takes a Village series takes place about twenty years ago.
