Paul E. Sylar is a person born in 1962, who is found documented in Chandra Suresh's research.
Based on the evolution of the Sylar character, particularly beyond the unaired pilot, it is evident that Paul E. Sylar was simply an early story-arc that was later abandoned for the current Gabriel Gray arc on Sylar's origin.
Mohinder discovers an entry in Chandra's notes with the following name and address:
- Paul Sylar
- 1201 S Main St #314
- (212) 555-6191
Mohinder goes to the address and discovers a number of articles about a series of grisly murders. He also finds a closet, the walls of which are covered in scrawled repetitions of the phrase "forgive me father for I have sinned".
Back at his father's apartment, Mohinder meets a figure wearing a dark trench-coat and black hat, and identifies him as "Sylar".
- It is unclear presently, whether "Paul E. Sylar", "Mr. Sylar", "Gabriel Sylar", "Gabriel Gray", or "Sylar" are all aliases for the same person.
- In the deleted scene showing Paul E. Sylar, the character is not portrayed by Zachary Quinto. In the commentary for the unaired pilot, Tim Kring said he was portrayed by an extra in a hat because the role was not yet cast.
