Educated guess at what role Christopher Eccleston is going to play in Heroes

After assembling some Internet spoilers for y’all, I think I can tell you what Christopher Eccleston is going to be doing in Heroes in January. Spoilers in a mo.

Eccleston will be playing an intense and wise mentor with an edge named Claude. He is said to be an imposing man with a gruff exterior. Supposedly, someone we will grow to love. He’ll be making his debut in the January 22 episode and has an ability not yet seen on the show. This hero has been around a lot longer than all the others, so presumably he can teach those heroes we already know a thing or two.
