"Hammer" is an evo lover of Claire Bennet and the biological father of Tommy and Malina.
Character History Edit
Hammer is briefly seen at the end of Project Reborn. As Tommy and his girlfriend Emily are at the ice cream parlor, a trench coat wearing patron gets up and leaves, having drunk a strawberry milkshake. When Tommy comes to clean the table, he sees that a tarot card had been left behind. The scene cuts to Malina, during her first day at Union Wells High School, going to her locker at school and she finds another tarot card there as well. Confused, she goes outside and gets inside a Mercedes Benz with her great grandmother picking her up. Malina shows her a tarot card she found in her locker, much to Angela's dismay. Angela warns Malina that the card indicates her father coming for her and Nathan and that no one will be able to protect them this time.

"Save the Cheerleader, Destroy the World"
Claire recalls that, on June 5, 2012, Hammer and seven other evos were rescued from a lynch mob by Peter and Claude and deposited on the Highland Dream. Hammer was in bad shape when he came in, with a severe head wound and fractures in both of his legs. Because she just finished a Mike Hammer novel, Claire decided to call him "Hammer". On the fourth of July, Hammer left the infirmary for the first time since arriving on the ship. Hammer and Claire had their first kiss that night under the fireworks. Claire recalls that, in the days and weeks following that, Hammer got more and more moody. He would argue with Micah, Mohinder, Peter, and Claude, saying that they needed to be more proactive in their mission. One day, Hammer simply disappeared.
On September 27, 2013, Hammer reappears at Claire's sanctuary in Italy. They lovingly embrace and Claire shows him around the abbey. That night they make out under the stars and Tommy and Malina are conceived. By the time Claire wakes up, Hammer is already gone.
- Hammer wears a heavy trenchcoat which Claire dislikes.
- Hammer dislikes his nickname but allows it in exchange for calling Claire "Blondie".
- Only time we see "Hammer" is when he subtly pays a visit to Tommy at his workplace.
