From Heroes Wiki
|As a young boy, the Haitian grew up idolizing his father, Guillame, a powerful spiritual leader. Guillame led his people to stand up against the Tonton Macoutes, the vicious and corrupt Haitian militia. Wielding a powerful mental attack, Guillame defended his people and was their hero... until the Haitian's own abilities became active...|
The Tonton Macoutes tie up Guillame in his village, and nobody cuts him down for twenty-four hours. Guillame decides to offer a sacrifice to the Loa to win back favor with his people. He insists that his son not be present. Instead, the boy sacrifices a pig in order to help give his father strength. Guillame confronts his people, uses his power on them, and makes them feel wonderful. Unbeknownst to the Houngan, his son watches from beneath some bushes, filled with pride in his father. Suddenly, Guillame's power weakens, and his people see through him. Guillame grabs his son and beats him. When the young Haitian's prayers for death go unanswered, his power manifests uncontrollably, "leaping from him like machetes" and reducing the villagers to a zombie-like state.
