Claire recalls that, on June 5, 2012, Hammer and seven other evos were rescued from a lynch mob by Peter and Claude and deposited on the Highland Dream. Hammer was in bad shape when he came in, with a severe head wound and fractures in both of his legs. Because she just finished a Mike Hammer novel, Claire decided to call him "Hammer". On the fourth of July, Hammer left the infirmary for the first time since arriving on the ship. Hammer and Claire had their first kiss that night under the fireworks. Claire recalls that, in the days and weeks following that, Hammer got more and more moody. He would argue with Micah, Mohinder, Peter, and Claude, saying that they needed to be more proactive in their mission. One day, Hammer simply disappeared.
On September 27, 2013, Hammer reappears at Claire's sanctuary in Italy. They lovingly embrace and Claire shows him around the abbey. That night they make love under the stars and Tommy and Malina are conceived. By the time Claire wakes up, Hammer is already gone.
- Hammer wears a heavy trenchcoat which Claire dislikes.
- Hammer dislikes his nickname but allows it in exchange for calling Claire "Blondie".
