How Eden found her voice.
Eden McCain, posing as a friend to Mohinder Suresh, has actually been spying on him for the Man in Horned Rimmed Glasses. She recently brought Isaac Mendez to HRG's facility, hoping his paintings could help them find Sylar. A simple whisper in his ear was all it took to break Isaac's will. And where Peter had failed, she captured Sylar, possibly the most dangerous man on the planet...

Summary

A young girl is abandoned by her father and left in the care of her alcoholic and abusive stepmother. She remains browbeaten and quiet for many years, until finally during a heated confrontation with her stepmother, she yells that she wishes the woman would just die—and her wish comes true. Her stepmother drops dead, her heart stopping at the girl's command. As the girl leaves, the house burns down behind her from the stepmother's dropped cigarette.

Walking away from the burning home, the girl is picked up by a motorist, whom she orders to take her west. Deciding it's the beginning of a new life, she chooses to rename herself "Eden".
