Sandra Bennet (Ashley Crow)
Lyle Bennet (Randall Bentley)Claire's little brother with the uncanny ability to be ignored by everyone.
Janice Parkman (Lisa Lackey)Matt's wife, with whom he has a strained relationship.
- Your Cheating Heart: Had an affair with Matt's partner and Matt believed her baby's father was the partner. Because of her past infidelity, Matt suspected she was cheating on him again with the water delivery man.
- Ooh, Me Accent's Slipping: Lisa Lackey is Australian and sometimes her accent slips through on certain words.
Zach (Thomas Dekker)Claire's friend, currently being chased by Terminators.
- Deadpan Snarker
- Laser-Guided Amnesia
- Nice Guy: Despite his limited role, he's one of the more likable characters in the series.
- Non-Action Guy
- Platonic Life Partners: He is Claire's best friend and no romance is ever hinted between them (though it initially had been written as such), mostly due to the below trope.
- Secret Keeper
- Straight Gay
Caitlin (Katie Carr)Oirish chick who is, as far as we know, still stranded in Bad Future Version 2.0.
Emile Danko a.k.a. "The Hunter" (Željko Ivanek)
The veteran leader of Nathan's government Black Ops team tasked with hunting down and capturing all evolved humans. A single-minded, ruthless, and somewhat unstable hardliner, he regards the supers as targets rather than people, and repeatedly expresses deep fear and hatred of them, seeming to believe that they should be killed off instead of merely detained. This attitude frequently leads him into conflict with Nathan and Noah Bennet, who advocate a more "humane approach" towards the superhuman roundup. His drive to be proven right and vindicated no matter what the cost leads him to attempt to fake a suicide bombing of Washington D.C. by a superpowered individual to turn public opinion in his favor. When that fails, leading to him being fired, he ends up shoving his boss Nathan out a window and taking total control of the operation himself. From there he gets crazier and crazier as the series progresses, to the point where he ends up secretly teaming up with Sylar, thinking that it's a good idea and he's got the situation completely under control. Sure, good luck with that...
- Bad Boss: Especially in the online comics and mini-series, where he's shown pushing his men to the brink and also sending them into potentially hazardous situations blind with poor intel. Plus it's implied that he's fed two of his men to Sylar so Sylar could assume their identities, as well as setting things up so that one of the personnel would end up killed by Tracey Strauss in an escape orchestrated by him to prevent an implied shutdown of the division by the government.
- It should be noted that when push came to shove, Danko's men were completely prepared to believe that he'd cracked and shot his own men, rather than believing Danko's story of shapeshifting killers, despite knowing that such things are entirely possible. Apparently that's the sort of reputation you get amongst your co-workers when you enlist them to fake attacks on your own citizens by the enemy.
- Badass Normal
- Bald of Evil
- Big Bad: All set to be Volume Four's, although Sylar made a last minute steal.
- Cape Busters
- The Dragon:To Nathan. At first...
- Dropped a Bridge on Him:During the first episode of Volume Five.
- Enemy Mine: Danko was implied to have been called by Samuel Sullivan's brother to arrest Samuel. Considering the fact that he actually accepted an offer from someone who is implied to be a well known evolved human, its implied that things with Samuel are as bad as they are gonna get if he actually wishes to work with the very thing he hates just to get rid of another one.
- Evil Is Not a Toy: Bennet outright spells this out to him when he calls Danko out on how stupid he was to think he could control Sylar:Bennet: Just how dumb are you? Who did you think would be left standing the minute Sylar got bored? You?
- A Father to His Men: Although he sometimes treats his men like dirt, he does seem to genuinely care about their lives. This is seemingly the only attribute of his that is in any way remotely positive... However, he did feed two of his men to Sylar so Sylar could assume their identities.
- Fantastic Racism: Has nothing but absolute disgust for evolved humans, to the point where he insists on referring to them as nothing but animals. Of course, this doesn't stop him from teaming up with Sylar... which, unsurprisingly, doesn't end well for him.
- Horrible Judge of Character: He trusted Sylar and believed to the end that he had him under control. Yeah, right.
- Humiliation Conga: Sylar frames Danko for murdering his own mooks so that they detain him at Building 26.
- Knight Templar: And HOW.
- Manipulative Bastard: In the earliest point of the season, he deliberately set things up so that Tracey Strauss would escape and eventually kill a guard who tried to restrain her so as to give a reason why the division shouldn't be shut down, an action that was not only something Nathan disapproved of, but was also implied to have been done behind Nathan Petrelli's back without Nathan's knowledge.
- Morality Pet: His secret girlfriend, although since he was deceiving her and using her to fulfill his emotional needs, even that aspect of his life was pretty dickish.
- Muggle Power: Pretty much his entire reason for existing.
- Perpetual Frowner: His two main emotions seem to be deeply upset or completely pissed.
- Smug Snake: Especially in "I Am Sylar", where he thinks he has Sylar completely under control. When he realizes this has been, in fact, a fatal mistake, the look on his face is priceless.
- The Starscream: When he says he intends to take down all evolved humans, he means it, even if its towards his own boss.
- The Unfettered: Will shoot whatever dogs and cross whatever Moral Event Horizons he has to in order to accomplish whatever objective he's given.
- Villainous Breakdown: You can just see all the little psychological cracks in his brain get bigger and bigger as the season progresses. Not that it makes him any less dangerous, though.
- You Kill It, You Bought It: Seizes control of the government operation after throwing his boss out a window.
- You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Subverted: Danko attempts to kill Sylar once his usefulness is at an end by stabbing his sweet spot. It backfires horribly after it became apparent that said "sweet spot" moved as a result of his enhanced chameleon abilities.
