Do you remember this quote?
"He sent me here to make you forget. Like he sent me to your friend, and your brother, and your mother so many times. He'll be here soon, expecting that you won't remember anything, but it is very important that you do. Tell me Claire, can you keep a secret?" - The Haitian to Claire in episode Fallout
Who is the Haitian in Heroes?
The Haitian has the power to manipulate other peoples' minds making them forget part, or all, of their memories. It appears that The Haitian can also block other abilities selectively.
The Haitian openly wears The Symbol around his neck.
The Haitian works as a member of Mr. Bennet's team at Primatech Paper Co. Together, the Haitian and Mr. Bennet bring in Matt Parkman, whose special ability is almost completely blocked by the Haitian.
They proceed to attempt a similar abduction routine on Nathan Petrelli, but Nathan escapes.
The Haitian assists in many other abductions of people with special abilities, including Ted Sprague, on behalf of an organization known as the Company.
With Eden's assistance, the Haitian is able to capture Sylar and bring him back to Primatech, although he eventually escapes.
The Haitian uses his power to erase the memories of Mr. Bennet's wife and son and others. Bennet orders him to erase his adopted daugther's memory as well, but he instead takes her into his confidence.
When the Company learns of Claire's ability, the Haitian erases Mr. Bennet's memory and takes Claire into hiding. Claire, however, eludes the Haitian and travels to New York City to find Peter Petrelli.
The Haitian gets there first and is waiting for Claire at Peter Petrelli's apartment with Claire's biological grandmother.
The Haitian remembers a story about himself as a young boy in his village in Haiti living with his father, Guillame. He discovers his abilities for the first time when he suppresses his father's abilities just by being present.
Furthermore, when Guillame attempts to redeem himself, the Haitian wipes clean the minds of many villagers, reducing them to a zombie-like state. Guillame accompanies the Haitian to the crossroads, seeking penance and planning to kill his son.
The Haitian becomes one with his father's mind by touching him and causes him to recall the two of them being happy together, such that Guillame commits suicide instead of murder.
Afterwards, the Haitian goes back to the village and meets Thompson for the first time.
