NOTICE: SHUTTING DOWN 4 JAN 2015

On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at tviv.org. --CygnusTMtalk


True Blood/Characters

From The TV IV
Jump to: navigation, search

True Blood has a large ensemble cast of characters. This list include every credited character to appear in two episodes or more.

The supporting characters is organized by species. "Humans" includes witches, brujos, ghosts, mediums, possessed humans, and humans with faerie blood (a.k.a. "halflings" and telepaths). Also note that, for this list, every character appearing on the show is considered human until shown otherwise.

The list is complete and updated as of Thank You, the 80th episode, and series finale.
