The Characters of Heroes *POTENTIAL SPOILERS*

I thought I shall start this blog with a basic outline of the main characters for "Heroes". It is always nice to have a reference point incase you cannot figure out who is who and how they are all interelated.

Some people may think that knowing about the characters, and certain aspects about them could be perceived as spoilers, if you are one of those people... I think now may be a good time to stop.

Personally, I do not think that there is any spoilers in here, but you never know who may get offended...

Ok, so you've decided to stick around.... Great! So let's get right to it... 

Mr. Bennet (Jack Coleman)
A father who works for the Primatech Paper Company, which is actually a cover operation for an organization that investigates people with superhuman abilities.

Mr. Bennet's adopted daughter, a high school cheerleader who lives in Odessa, Texas, and has a healing factor.
