History alteration is the ability to alter clairsentient histories, memories and historic records.
- Katherine Bishop has this ability naturally.
- Simon Petrelli was given this ability by his brother.
- Abbie Gray has absorbed this ability from Simon.
- Noah Gray has also absorbed the ability from Simon.
- Jessica Sky Petrelli has mimicked this ability from her grandmother.
- Robert Max has also mimicked this ability from Katherine.
- Peter Petrelli has absorbed this ability in World 2 and World 8.
Katherine can use this ability skillfully to alter the history of any person or object. She can thus remove any memories anyone would have of the specific events, and alter things so that a clairsentient would perceive a different result, as well as editing written and photographic evidence of the event. However, the real history will remain true. She is known to have used this ability to hide the true paternity of her youngest daughter. However, this made the girl's history and mind in a way "broken", which could be detected using intuitive aptitude and, with effort, the truth could be telepathically revealed.
Simon is able to change the memories of others when he touches them, and can change photographic and written records when he touches these objects. If he focuses intently, he is also able to remove the clairsentient history of an object and give it another. However, the real history doesn't change, it is just made undetectable hidden beneath a lie.
Abbie has the same limits as her cousin, Simon.
Noah too has the same limits as Simon.
Jess has the same limits as her grandmother.
Robert also has the same limits as Katherine.
Peter has the same limits as Katherine in World 8, and as Simon in World 2.
