The Sixth Extinction

Character(s): Gabriel "Sylar" Gray and Claire Bennet
Summary: Building 26 is never shut down. No one convinces the president that it's best to just drop the matter of evolved humans, and Danko is given cart blanche to deal with the super-powered threat as he sees fit. In the next century the Evolved are hunted to the brink of extinction, either out-right exterminated, or imprisoned and exploited for their ability. The number of specials used in this way grows fewer and fewer as time and mishaps progress, but one type is still coveted above all. Exterminating a regenerator is exceedingly difficult, anyway...
Status: In progress/PRIVATE

"My mother liked to have me right there at her side. She was terribly protective, always acting like someone might come along and steal me away at any moment," which by now he figured had meant Samson, but he didn't get into that. "But I was quiet and content enough not to have to put up with the other kids anyway, even if it was boring, and sometimes intimidating."

"Yeah." Claire nodded, certainly identifying with that last part. "God is kinda scary." She mentioned. It had been a long time since she'd actually gotten into her faith. "When I was real little, before my brother was born, all I remember was how scared I was by the crucifix on the altar. Like: What are they doing to that poor man. Freaked me out."

"A good crucifix certainly is more graphic than a five-year-old needs to be exposed to. But, it didn't bother me so much unless I could see the blood coming from the crown of thorns... When I was little, anyway," he picked up one of the strips of bacon from his plate and took a thoughtful bite of it.

"Creepy." Claire shivered, making a grossed out face. "Yeah, that definitely freaked me out. And the slash down his side... ew." She shook her head, her hair falling in her face slightly. "But when I got older, it wasn't so bad. They eventually got rid of the crucifix and replaced it with Jesus risen. Much nicer to look at. That, and we had a really cool priest."

"I always found the clergy terribly imposing. I didn't much care for the Church and drifted away over the course of a few years, after I graduated high school. Mine was the sort that liked to make the congregation feel ashamed, like we were never good enough for God and he was this sort of disapproving parent who only stuck with us because he had to, because we were family, and even that was iffy," he shook his head, disappointed in his own unfortunate upbringing. "I never understood why people stayed so devoted to an outlook like that."

Claire smiled brightly then, finally seeing a bit of why Sylar was the way he was. "Look, I don't want to sound like the Sunday morning Christian holocast, but I was raised with a loving God. A parent who was always proud of his children, no matter how badly they screwed up. Jesus was just a really cool brother. Sure, we're a big family, but good or bad, if you truly are sorry, you'll be forgiven."

She had never, never preached he beliefs and Claire certainly wasn't going to start now, but it did feel good to know that her faith could make her still feel good and warm inside after all these years.

"I will, hm?" Sylar quirked one eyebrow at her curiously. He'd just spent the day before being torn to shreds by the vindictive blonde and now she was telling him salvation could still be his.

"I'm not God." Claire said flatly, following his train of thought easily. "I'm human, which means that if I don't want to forgive you because I believe that you're a lying manipulative bastard, than I have that choice." Her words weren't cruel at all, if anything they were terribly sarcastic. "But God, the all knowing all seeing deity that lives in the Kingdom of Heaven. He knows the truth and He will forgive you if you ask for it."

"Hm," Sylar smirked and sat back, picking up his tea cup and taking a sip. "And how have you reconciled your undieing state with that cotton candy kingdom in the sky?" he tilted his head to the side a bit, curiously.

"I have some purpose. Perhaps it's to be miserable and spend the rest of my eternity sending loathing glares at you." Claire said with a sly smirk. "Like I just told you, I'm not God. Whatever He's got planned, it's not my place to ask. I'll know when and if I get there. I honestly can't live forever. Adam eventually died. So will we."

"Such a waste," Sylar frowned, thinking back on a man he'd only read about in files. "I can only imagine what it would have been like to have a conversation with that man. We're still young by comparison to what he was when he was murdered, God, Aurthur Petrelli was an insufferable bastard." Sylar was proud to have him as a notch in his death toll.

"Thanks for shooting him in the head, by the way." Claire smiled sarcastically, raising her glass of more apple juice to the brunette before finishing it off. "He really was an ass. As was his wife, but we won't get into that. That was a long time ago." And Angela only robbed Claire of most of her freedom, not her life.

"That one I'm still holding grudges on," Sylar scowled at the thought of Angela Petrelli, a woman he would forever loath and admire for the rest of his days. "She was a special sort of perversly evil, but I'm well aware it's a trait that skipped certain individuals in your family."

"Yeah, how my grandparents were so fucked up and the rest of us turned out relatively okay is beyond me." Claire shook her head, giggling and blushing slightly over the slip of the swear. She would normally never use that kind of language. "Pardon my french." She laughed.

"Heh, are you showing your age or is that expression back in vogue? I'm always called out on the way I speak. People tell me I sound like a classic novel," he rolled his eyes. "I inevitably claim to be a nerdy history buff."
