No, seriously. His first arc is straight out of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.
Both are teaching professors (Mohinder: biology; Indy: archaeology)
Their fathers are both academicians as well (Dr. Chandra Suresh: biology; Dr. Henry Jones, Sr.: medieval studies).
Both are estranged from their fathers, in part due to the death of a female relative (Indy’s mother, Mohinder’s sister) and in part due to the fathers’ obsessions with their own personal quests (Suresh: evolved humans; Jones: the Holy Grail).
Nonetheless, each pursued his father half-way across the world when that quest got him into trouble.
They both found their fathers’ notes, which had been missed when their homes were ransacked.
Each encountered a female associate of his father, close to his own age, who later turned out to be a spy. Moreover, both women’s first names were four letters long and started with an E (Dr. Elsa Schneider, Eden McCain).
Each shares his name with a family pet. (Indiana Jones took his nickname from the dog. The elder Dr. Suresh named a lizard after his son.)
