Brief History

Harry grew up in Houston, Texas. His mother died of bowel cancer when Harry was around three years old, and their only child was raised alone by his father. The pair were never very close, but Harry's father always tried to get Harry interested in sport, in which Harry had no interest whatsoever.

When Harry came out as gay just after his seventeenth birthday, his father grew angry, and accidentally activated his ability of DNA Manipulation. He had no idea that he even had this power, but during their argument he managed to alter Harry's DNA so he would never age. Harry did not notice this for a long time. Deciding he could no longer live with his father after the argument, Harry moved to New York, where he came to attention of the Organisation.

Zachary Gray went to recruit him, and explain abilities to him, and the pair became close friends, despite him having shot Zach when they first met. They had a sexual relationship that lasted a few months, but neither were very happy, and Harry became the first person to ever reject Zach.

When the Gifted Academy opened, Harry began to attend, although he does not live on campus like most of the students his age. The day before he was due to begin his second year at the school, he went out with Zach, and the pair ended up meeting Grayson Hopkin. In a drunken haze, Grayson and Harry had a one night stand. However, the next day, he saw Grayson Hopkin at school the next day, and found out Grayson was his teacher.

Despite their attempts not to, the pair began a relationship, even after both agreeing that they would be strictly professional. Harry ended his friendship with Zach, stating that he wanted to give his relationship with Grayson a try by not remaining close to his ex, and the couple began living together. They broke up when Grayson's ex wife, Julie Cobb, said she wanted to get back together with him, and Stiffy has recently moved in with Zach.


Only a little is known of Harry's future. He will occasionally date Zach again, and will for several years be living with him and with Tyler, although he and Zach will not be dating at the time. He will eventually settle down with George Petrelli, his inability to age making up for the age difference between them, and they will marry. Then, they will adopt eight children from around the globe: Kari, Sakae, Mai, Robyn, Addae, Davi, Rainbow and Italiano.
