var nodes = {};
var chars = [
  'A', 'B', 'C', 'D', 'E', 'F', 'G', 'H', 'I',
  'J', 'K', 'L', 'M', 'N', 'O', 'P', 'Q', 'R',
  'S', 'T', 'U', 'V', 'W', 'X', 'Y', 'Z'
];

chars.forEach(function(c) {
  var node = cons.getNode(c);

  if (nodes[node]) {
    nodes[node].push(c);
  } else {
    nodes[node] = [];
    nodes[node].push(c);
  }
});

console.log(nodes);

// { node3: [ 'A', 'F', 'H', 'J', 'N', 'S', 'U', 'W', 'X' ],
//   node1: [ 'B', 'C', 'E', 'G', 'L', 'M', 'Q', 'R', 'V', 'Y', 'Z' ],
//   node2: [ 'D', 'I', 'K', 'O', 'P', 'T' ] }
