Maya and Alejandro Herrera are twins.
Some Heroes characters are twins or triplets. There are also some actors that have twins.
Maya and Alejandro were twins. According to the curandera, Maya was born first. The two were most likely aged between 25 and 30, before Alejandro's death at the hands of Sylar. Maya and Alejandro had complementing abilities, with Alejandro being able to cure people, and Maya, when they were plagued with Maya's ability. Maya and Alejandro were played by two unrelated actors, Shalim Ortiz, and Dania Ramirez.
Niki, Tracy, and Barbara were triplets. It is unknown who their biological parents were, nor what their surname is. The three were injected with abilities by Dr. Zimmerman, the man who delivered them. Niki was given enhanced strength, Tracy was given freezing, and it is unknown what ability Barbara got. Zimmerman believed Tracy to be Barbara when he first met her. Tracy was unaware of her sisters until Zimmerman informed her of them. Micah, Jim McCann, Nathan, and Mohinder all thought that Tracy was Niki on first meeting her. It is unknown how much Hal Sanders knew about his daughter, or if Niki is actually of any relation to Jessica. Niki originally couldn't deal with her ability and developed a split personality. Barbara most likely kept in contact with Zimmerman, and was also associated with The German. All three characters are portrayed by the same actress, Ali Larter.

In the dream, Piper discovered that Debbie was forced to live in a Company facility. Debbie helps Piper escape. Piper's mother has no recollection of Debbie, but The Haitian could have been involved.
