"I'm so sorry."
―Charles Hinton[src]

Charles Hinton was an Inhuman able to give other people glimpses of the death of a single individual upon physical contact; this terrible power forced him to abandon his wife and daughter and live as a homeless man. He was kidnapped by HYDRA so that his gifts could be used by Hive; however, when S.H.I.E.L.D. came to rescue him from his captors, Hinton fought against Gideon Malick and sacrificed his life to protect Daisy Johnson.
