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

"You don't think you could learn from your father's mistakes and raise the next generation better for it? I know if I had a life dependent on me I'd never put a kid through the sort of demands and repression I went through," he didn't sound like he really expected to ever find himself a fathr though. Just a big 'what if' that happened to go with the conversation.

"Peter said that you made a good father, strangely enough." Claire said, finishing off her second glass of juice before calling it quits. "He went to that weirdo future where I was a badass and Nathan was a prick... but you...? You were normal. You had a son. Peter said it creeped him out a bit."

"...what?" Sylar scoffed softly, looking at her with a severe distrust in his dark eyes. It was such a random thing to say, an impossible possibility but Peter had told him about a future where he had mastered the Hunger. Once upon a time. "What are you talking about?" he almost laughed at the idea.

"Yeah. He said something like a four-year-old. You were making pancakes or something for him." Claire smiled and nodded. "You were actually really concerned that your son would learn of your powers. You didn't want to scare him. Kinda sweet if you ask me." The blond continued, standing to put her glass in the autowash before making her way back to the living area, a comfy couch much more suitable for her boney butt.

"The only thing that I thought was really weird was that you named your son Noah." Like Noah Bennet, which Claire didn't buy for a heartbeat. Sylar would never name one of his children after her father. Never.

"That's... So bizarre," Sylar knew she wasn't lying, not about any of it, and that was so strange because he couldn't imagine why he'd choose that name unless, "Something must have happened that never happened. He must have changed his mind and helped me... And then that never came to be." he sounded quietly disappointed in that lost possibility as he rose to join her in the living room.

"My dad said he never intended on helping you. He hunted you until the day he died, remember?" Claire pointed out, her father chasing Sylar until his hair was almost entirely grey. "I think it was something else, not sure what though." The blond shook her head.

"The story goes Knox ended up killing little Noah, driving you off the deep end and blowing up half of California. Peter said you lived in my old house in Costa Verde. Even had one of my mom's show dogs. A pom." She shrugged. "The image in my head is kinda cute. You wearing a pair of black-rimmed glasses, making waffles for your kid. Just... so not you." She laughed, actually enjoying the image.

"No, not any more," he frowned again seating himself a little heavily. "I suppose it's best it didn't turn out that way though, if all it amounted to was that I lost him. We would lose just about any of them though. We'd outlive any children."

"Unless they had our ability. If we actually pass it on. It's happened with a few people. Matt Parkman and his father shared the same ability." She could only hope that her children would live forever like she would. The idea that she would have to watch her children age and die was certainly off-putting.

"It was the same in my family, but it's really the luck of the draw. So many others are more like your family. Peter and Aurthur came closest to sharing an ability there, and still there was a distinctive difference," he reasoned.

"And Matty Jay had a completely different ability than Matt. What did Hiro call him?" Claire smiled, trying to remember. "Oh yeah! Baby touch and go."

Sylar didn't really laugh along with. He knew about the boy and his ability but his mind had beendrawn back, decades. He was still wondering about the child, Noah, who might have been and wasn't. It didn't hit him as hard as it would have, nearer to the lost opportunity, but still a certain regret stirred inside him. "Nakamura. I don't suppose you've seen him popping through the timeline recently?"

"No. You?" Claire asked, almost a little too hopefully.

"No," Sylar answered with a disappointed sigh. "I always keep my eyes up and earto the ground, expecting him to comesee this travesty and declare it must be changed, but so far, nothing."

"I don't think either of them, Peter or Hiro, jumped this far ahead." Claire shook her head, the disappointment completely understood. "If they did, I think they would have tried to fix it. Extinction is a terrible thing to face, especially if it was your own kind. Now i kind of know how the new Spock felt."

"Did you just make a Star Trek reference?" Sylar squinted at Claire incredulously, not expecting sci-fi would really be her thing, especially not something like Star Trek. Star Wars maybe, but not the more elegant tales of the Federation.
