|Age||5 (at death)|
Little is known about Shanti Suresh. It is suggested that she possessed a genetic mutation that would have granted her superhuman abilities. It is revealed in "The Hard Part" that she suffered from an extremely rare virus which first suppressed whatever superhuman abilities she possessed, and later progressed to result in her death. Molly Walker was suffering from this same virus, until being cured by Mohinder.
Shanti's genetic mutation and untimely death that led her father Chandra, and later her younger brother Mohinder (albeit unknowingly at first), to pursue research related to human genetic mutation.
