- Redirect ---> Hunter Lefkowitz
Hunter is a mutant with the ability to project microwaves. He can use this to "cook" people and animals from the inside out. In Hunger, he is provoked by Zil Sperry, and when attacked, he accidentally attacks their roommate. He is on the run for the rest of the book, but is eventually found by Zil and his group (who have now taken to calling themselves the Human Crew) and is knocked out with a metal baseball bat. He receives permanent brain damage from this, and cannot feel or move one side of his face. His thoughts are also jumbled. After Zil attempts to execute him, he escapes and "lives up to his name" as a hunter who kills animals to feed himself and others. He dies at some point during Plague.
