Noah Bennet is played by Jack Coleman


A government agent who became a long time agent for the mysterious group The Company, Noah Bennet dedicated himself toward investigating superpowered people.


Company ManEdit

Noah Bennet's life prior to becoming an agent of the company remains largely unknown. What is known is that at some point at some point, Noah was married, but his wife was murdered by a superpowered human, causing him to have a deep mistrust of superpowered people. As a result of this, he joined a clandestine organization called The Company, which was put in place to police superpowered individuals and based out of Primatech Paper Co., which was used as a front. In 1991, he was put in the position of manager for the front and was partnered with a man known only as Claude, who had invisibility powers (which was part of the "One of Them, One of Us" strategy of partnering a powered person with a normal one). Sometime later, Claude betrayed the Company for reasons unknown and Noah would often work alone since then.

In 1992, Bennet met with Kaito Nakamura (an important figure in the Company) following a mysterious fire and was given the orders to adopt a young girl named Claire. He was told to keep her close and bring her back to the Company if and when her powers emerged. Noah raised her as his own child and eventually re-married. From then on, Noah lead a double life as a Company agent and a family man working for the company Primatech paper, a front for the Company.  He also gained a new partner, known only as "the Haitian", who had mental powers that would be used to manipulate the memories of people in order to work in secrecy.

Years later, Bennet had a son as well and raised the both without telling her that she wasn't his biological child.  She would find out on her own that she had the ability from any wound and kept it secret from her family.  However, when two powered people, Matt Parkman and Ted Sprague, invade the Bennet household hoping to uncover the Company's secrets, Sprague's powers got out of control, threatening to kill the family with radiation.

After escaping to Costa Verde, CA, he began working for the Company again in a deal to keep Claire safe. After the disintegration of the Company, Noah was approached by Nathan and joined the Department of Homeland Security to once again, keep Claire safe.

To most of the world, Noah Bennet seems like a typical, if slightly geeky, suburbanite father. His loyalty to his family and his loyalty to his profession are frequently at odds. While it's clear that he loves Claire very much and would do anything to protect her, his methods indicate a level of ruthlessness that conflicts with his genuinely caring nature. For example, while he seems to initially show real concern for Isaac's well being and rehabilitation, he does not hesitate to have Eden use her persuasive powers to make Isaac use heroin again when he believe she needs to make use of Isaac's precognitive abilities. Similarly, while his use of the Haitian's memory modifying ability on Brody seems somewhat restrained given his intense anger at the boy, the casual use of the same ability on Zach and even his own family shows that his dedication to his job—and to keeping Claire safe--knows no limits. He does seem to possess his own moral code, though, as his intense reactions to Sylar's murders and Eden's father's callousness attest.

Spying on and confronting Mohinder Suresh, Mr. Bennet appears to work for an organization that is involved in the death of Chandra Suresh. But Mr. Bennet also has a non-work persona who lives and cares for his adopted daughter Claire, his wife Sandra, and his son Lyle in their home in Odessa, TX. He tries to protect his family from the dangers of his work using his partner, the Haitian, to erase their memories when needed.

Based out of the Primatech Paper Co., Mr. Bennet, the Haitian, and Eden carry out the capture, evaluation, and release of people with special abilities. However, this work gets out of hand when two of the people, Matt Parkman and Ted Sprague, invade Mr. Bennet's home, burn it down, and almost blow up the neighborhood. They expose his daughter's ability and force him to send her on the run with his partner. Later, Mr. Bennet gets a new partner that exposes what he has done, and ends up on the run himself with Matt and Ted. Mr. Bennet decides they need to take out the Company's tracking systems used for locating people with special abilities. He sends one of his recruits to take out the satellite system while he, Matt, and Ted go to New York City to destroy another--the Walker system.

After discovering that the Walker system is a girl, they decide to rescue instead of kill her. However, they learn that a threat known as Sylar is near. Mr. Bennet uses Molly to locate Peter Petrelli to fight Sylar. He tries to help Peter, but is hurt and is only able to be a witness. Mr. Bennet watches Nathan fly Peter into the atmosphere where the explosion occurs. After the commotion is over, Bennet tells Claire that they should go home. Claire mentions that their house burned down, but Bennet tells her that home is anywhere their family is together.

Noah and his family have moved to Costa Verde as the "Butlers" and try to avoid detection from the Company. Meanwhile, Noah has teamed with Mohinder to take down the Company from the inside. Sandra picks up a newspaper one day and shows Noah an article about Kaito Nakamura's death. Noah tells her that he knew this would happen, and shows Sandra an old painting by Isaac Mendez depicting Kaito laying in a pool of blood. He tells her that it's part of a series of eight paintings, but that he was only given the first one and needs to find the rest. The Haitian joins Noah after being cured from a virus by Mohinder, and the partners seek out the paintings after Mohinder finds a painting of Noah lying dead.

Noah and the Haitian arrive in Odessa, Ukraine and find Ivan, Noah's old mentor. Noah interrogates the old man to find the location of the paintings, then kills him. In a warehouse, Noah and the Haitian find the remaining six paintings by Isaac, placing them in order. The paintings depict several things, including a vial, an angry blond woman, two men sword-fighting, Mohinder firing a gun, and Noah's death. Noah calls Mohinder, and warns him not to get too close to the Company when he discovers a painting in the warehouse of Mohinder holding a Company gun. Noah then returns home to Costa Verde where he discovers Claire is secretly dating West, even though Noah ordered her not to because it could jeopardize their safety. He then tells his family they're moving because of what Claire has done, but Claire refuses to go saying they should leave without her.

Attempting to avoid his own death as foretold in the painting, Noah goes to find West so they can save Claire. On the way, Noah learns of Mohinder's betrayal and plots to stop the Company. He and West go to meet with Mohinder, where they knock out and kidnap Elle. Noah learns that Claire has been kidnapped and calls Bob to arrange a trade. During the meeting, Bob releases Claire and Noah releases Elle, who walk by each other. West tries to fly Claire away, but Elle shoots them down with a lightning bolt. Noah then shoots Elle and threatens to kill Bob, but Mohinder shoots Noah in the eye. Noah dies, but heals and awakens on a hospital bed in an empty room with an IV of Claire's blood in his arm.

While being held, Bennet told Mohinder that he made a mistake by aiding the Company. Mohinder responded that he helped the Company save lives and stopped Noah's paranoia and violence. When Bennet is told that he was healed with Claire's blood, he panicked and demanded to know where his daughter is. Mohinder dryly answered that Claire is safe at home. He is locked in a cell and sits idly bouncing a ball against a wall. Elle asks him to tell her about her past. He tells her about the testing her father arranged to see the extent of her ability. Later, Bob tells Noah that Claire is becoming a problem. Noah smiles, but when Bob says that it's unfortunate and that they may have to take drastic measures, the grin on his face disappears. Noah arrives at his home, shocking Claire and his family. He says that he didn't plan any of this but has found a way to protect all of them. He has to go back with the Company, much to everyone's dismay.
