Alejandro's ability

Alejandro uses his ability to combat Maya's ability
Held by: Alejandro Herrera (deceased)
Ability to: Counteract his sister's ability

Poison Negation supresses the effects of his sister's ability.



Alejandro appears to be unaffected by Maya's ability while it is manifesting, and with effort he can reverse its effects in Maya and others after it has manifested. (Lizards, Kindred, The Kindness of Strangers, Four Months Ago...)

The maximum range at which Alejandro can neutralize Maya's ability is not clear, but it appears to be less than 100 meters. It is also unclear how long after their "deaths" that Alejandro can revive Maya's victims.

It is not known if Alejandro's power would interact with the powers of evolved humans other than his twin sister, nor is it known if his power could be used to treat illnesses or injuries unrelated to Maya's ability.

Alejandro must be in physical contact with Maya in order to neutralize her ability.



  • According to writers Aron Coleite and Joe Pokaski, Alejandro was able to reverse the effects of Maya's power on Nidia because Nidia hadn't died yet. "Once people die, all Alejandro can do is pray and grab a shovel."[1]
  • It is unknown whether this power would work on Arthur after he absorbed Maya's power, as it could be heavily related to Maya and Alejandro's emotional connection.
