Peter Petrelli (holistichero)

Warning: Entry may contain mild spoilers for Season 2.

Peter Petrelli is the youngest son of Angela and the late "Dallas" Petrelli, and the younger brother of Nathan. He was born and raised in New York, and had a relatively normal childhood, which mainly consisted in him living in his brother's shadow, since Nathan 'took up more space than he did'. Despite this, Peter holds no animosity towards his brother, and actually looks up to him a great deal.

He was the 'dreamer' of the Petrelli household, holding qualities that did not appeal to the other members of his family. On many occasions he was told to grow up and get his head out of the clouds, especially once he entered nursing school. His father expected more from him, wanting him to be more like Nathan, but Peter had other plans. He wanted to help people, and make a difference in the world.

When he realized he had a special ability, his brother was the first person he went to about it. His brother was always there, especially when Peter was frightened and needed someone. And, no matter how much Nathan tried to push him away, Peter was just as stubborn and pushed back.

After the incident in Kirby Plaza, Peter awoke in the Nexus. However, only his subconscious currently resides: his body is currently in Ireland, with no recollection of who he is or how he got there.
