Mother of John, she was told in the first film that he grows up to be the leader of the resistance against [=SkyNet=]. Currently, lives with him, Cameron, and Derek in Los Angeles, trying to stop the creation of [=SkyNet=]. [[spoiler:Might have or will have cancer - it was what she died of in an alternate timeline.]] %%* ActionGirl * ActionMom * BadassNormal * FantasticRacism: Doesn't waste an opportunity to express how much she hates Terminators and spends many a episode saying something hateful towards Cameron. %%* [[FourTemperamentEnsemble Five Temperament Ensemble]]: Sanguine %%* TheHero * JerkassHasAPoint: While her treatment of Cameron is in no way nice or appreciative, she does have reason to distrust Terminators, especially the new breed who can fake emotions or glitch and try to kill them as Cameron ended up doing. * LethalChef : Other than pancakes and PB&J, Sarah can't cook. %%* MamaBear * MsFanservice: Arguably more to this compared with Linda Hamilton's version, who is closer to real-life ActionGirl and understandably less Fanservice. * TookALevelInJerkass: Noticeably compaired to the Linda Hamilton version when it comes to treating allied Terminators. %%* ScrewDestiny !!John Connor (Thomas Dekker) [[quoteright:284:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/John_Connor_02_4437.jpg]] Aliases: John Reese, John Baum. Sarah's son, the future leader of the resistance. Not quite a leader yet.

All the better to kill you with. %%* ThereAreNoTherapists: Explored in one episode. * TiredOfRunning: Repeatedly states this throughout the series. He just wants to prevent the War so it can be ''over''. * TookALevelInBadass: Season Two was all about this, but it came with knowing what terrifying sacrifices were made for him and by him. !!Cameron (Creator/SummerGlau) [[quoteright:267:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Cameron-001_9761.jpg]] ->''"Thank you for explaining"''. Aliases: Cameron Phillips, Cameron Baum, Allison Young. The reprogrammed Terminator (rumored to be [=TOK715=]) sent back by future John. The most advanced infiltrating unit seen so far - unlike other Terminators, she can eat food [[spoiler:and can cry]]. Acts as John Connor's advisor in the future, much to the chagrin of the other resistance fighters. %%* ActionGirl * TheCastShowoff: Her ballet scenes? That's all Summer. %%* {{Badass}} %%* BadassAdorable %%* BecomingTheMask * BerserkButton: Don't lie to her or wear her favorite leather jacket. %%* TheBigGirl * BlueAndOrangeMorality: Cameron's concept of caring, concern, affection, and morality begins and ends with John Connor. %%* BunnyEarsLawyer * CameBackWrong: She survived a car bomb, but was accidentally reset to her Skynet programming. She even told Sarah not to let John bring her back if it happens again. * CloudCuckoolander: Comes off as one [[spoiler: even before her chip was damaged.]] %%* TheComicallySerious %%* CreepyMonotone %%* CuteBruiser * ADayInTheLimelight: "Allison From Palmdale" (Cameron's origin) and "Self Made Man" (Cameron's night time activities) * {{Deconstruction}}: "Self-Made Man" deconstructed Cameron as a character. %%* {{Determinator}} %%* DoesNotUnderstandSarcasm %%* EmotionlessGirl * FeelNoPain: Comes with being a Terminator. * FemmeFatale: Cameron ''knows'' how her appearance affects those around her and uses it to great effect, either [[ShowSomeLeg using it to draw in targets]] or [[DistractedByTheSexy to derail and distract]]. She's even willing to use it on John. %%* [[FourTemperamentEnsemble Five Temperament Ensemble]]: Melancholic %%* ImplacableMan * IWillProtectHer: A gender flipped version where Cameron will do everything to protect John, as well as prepare him for Judgement Day and beyond. %%* LadyOfWar %%* LittleMissBadass * MagicalGirlfriend: {{Deconstructed}}. She's an unearthly beautiful girl devoted to John but she also lacks empathy towards anyone else and is willing to protect John by any means at her disposal. * ManipulativeBitch: Cameron is ''very good'' at getting the reaction she wants out of people. * NoSenseOfPersonalSpace: She stands too close to people and stares when she evaluates their threat level. %%* {{Omniglot}} * PassiveAggressiveKombat: Punishes conversational partners who don't make her happy with disturbing revelations. * PetTheDog: All the time with John, from reassuring him of his value to acting as a semi love interest. Also towards a researcher who helps her, from helping him move about in his wheelchair to letting him fire her gun. Then she lets slip that he's had a relapse of cancer he thought he had finally gotten cured, causing him to possibly be DrivenToSuicide. * RedEyesTakeWarning: "Born To Run." That's ''all'' that needs to be said. %%* RobotGirl * ShoutOut: She's named after Franchise creator Creator/JamesCameron. %%* TheStoic %%* SugarAndIceGirl * [[LeotardOfPower Unitard Of Power]]: She wears a dark red unitard when going undercover as a ballet student. * WaifFu: Comes with being played by Creator/SummerGlau. * WeakButSkilled: At least in relation to other Terminators. She doesn't have their raw strength and often can't beat bigger Terminators in a straight up fight - which is why she [[CombatPragmatist fights dirty]]. * {{Yandere}}: Very loosely, but there are shades of this in some episodes. She'll protect John, no matter the cost. * YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: In "The Demon Hand" to the Russians, after getting what she needed from them. Note in this case she doesn't actually kill them, but simply ignores them once she has what she needs, allowing them to be killed because their survival was then irrelevant to her overall mission. * YoungerThanTheyLook: Cameron's exact age is never specified, but she's almost certainly younger than her human appearance makes her seem. !!Charley Dixon (Dean Winters) ->''"He was a scary robot but you, you're a really scary robot."''

An agent of the FBI, he started out trying to stop the Connors...until he started believing them. %%* AsTheGoodBookSays %%* BaldOfAwesome %%* InspectorJavert * KillAndReplace: Not him, but a Terminator who tried to kill and replace him to steal his identity. It's foiled, however, [[VillainousRescue by Cromartie, of all people]]... I mean cyborg. See Cromartie section below. * ShoutOut: His name is a dual reference to Creator/JamesCameron (Original writer) and Harlan Ellison (Who claims to have written it first). * WellIntentionedExtremist: Avoids ever being an outright villain due to the fact that he had good reason to believe Sarah was seriously dangerous. He was just an officer who ended up in really deep stuff. !!Derek Reese (Brian Austin Green) ->''"We can go back. We can fix all the mistakes"''. John's uncle from the future, he came back to get a chess playing computer named the Turk [[spoiler:and kill its creator, Andy Goode]].

John's new friend at school. Not very well liked by the audience. [[spoiler: Actually working with Jessie to manipulate John Connor.]] * BrokenBird: [[spoiler: The cracks begin to show early that she's had a troubled past, once it's revealed she grew up during the war with the machines, it becomes clear she's been barely holding it together most of the time.]] Even her "cover story" is pretty awful: she was orphaned when her parents died in a meth lab accident. %%* KeepingSecretsSucks %%* KilledOffForReal]] %%* TheMole %%* SacrificialLamb %%* WalkingSpoiler !!Morris (Luis Chávez) John's other friend at school.

Also, is a liquid metal T-1001 Terminator. * AmbiguouslyEvil: She looks like the BigBad of the second season and has no qualms about killing anyone she needs to, [[spoiler: but she's trying to ''destroy'' Skynet rather than create it]]. * BondOneLiner -->''"Sorry I piss you off, Mr. Tuck. The feeling's mutual.''" -->''"I bet that's never happened before either."'' * BulletproofFashionPlate: Although it's easier when your clothes and hair are part of your shapeshifting body. %%* CorruptCorporateExecutive: ''Subverted.'' * KillAndReplace: [[spoiler: May or may not be, since it's unclear if the real Catherine Weaver is actually killed in a helicopter crash (that killed her husband) or killed by this T-1001 who assumed her identity.]] * LightIsNotGood: She wears a lot of white. Downplayed because she's technically an AntiHero, [[spoiler:as it is implied that she did consider allying with the resistance to take down Skynet, but turned down the offer in part due to Jessie, and that Project Babylon was also implied to be a means to counteract Skynet.]] * UnflinchingWalk: After she killed the people at the "air conditioning factory".

''Extremely'' intelligent, but almost childlike. * AIIsACrapshoot: ''Averted''. Weaver specifically enlisted Ellision to teach John Henry morality and ethics so he develops properly. * BasementDweller: It's not like he has any choice on the matter since [[spoiler: his body]] is permanently hooked up to the computer that's used to run his AI. * CainAndAbel: John Henry asks which "brother" he is. Weaver's response is [[spoiler: he might be neither, and may in fact be ''God.'']] !!Dr. Boyd Sherman (Dorian Harewood) ->''"Because it has so many problems"''. A child therapist whose name was found on the blood-stained basement. Weaver hires him as a consultant to help her understand the strange behavior of her AI. * DroppedABridgeOnHim: Died of heat stroke after the AI rerouted the power from the air-conditioning to continue powering itself. * TokenMinority: The only other African-American character in the show aside from Ellison. !!Jesse Flores (Stephanie Jacobsen) ->''"Sunset's at 5:47. I'm not gonna miss that sucker."'' Resistance fighter who traveled back in time to escape the hell of the future. Has an intimate relationship with Derek Reese. [[spoiler: Actually traveled back in time on her own with Riley to try and separate John and Cameron, and is also implied to be an alternate counterpart to Jesse from Derek's timeline.]] * AlasPoorVillain : You can't help but feel bad for her after the events in the submarine and Cameron's bad news. --> You have ''no idea'' what they took from us! * BatmanGambit: [[spoiler: Get Riley to threaten Cameron enough to kill her so John would be alienated from Cameron in the first place. If that doesn't work, kill Riley yourself, then pin the blame on Cameron.]] Unfortunately for her [[spoiler: John figured it out before he terminated Cameron]]. * BitchInSheepsClothing: Revealed herself as this the moment she slapped Riley, and right after Riley admitted to screwing up, was not in good shape and was asking to stay with Jesse for a while. * ADayInTheLimelight: "The Last Voyage of the Jimmy Carter". %%* ManipulativeBitch * MsFanservice : Spends several scenes in swimsuits and bikinis. * WhamLine: gets one by [[spoiler: Derek before we see the last of her.

I eat garbage for dinner"'' Resistance fighter in the future. Captured by Skynet, and who Cameron's physical features are based on. [[spoiler: Later killed by Cameron [[BerserkButton for lying to her]].]] Implied to know John Connor personally. [[spoiler: And now, most likely alive again in the alternate future timeline.]] * BeautyIsNeverTarnished: Averted; her face is marked by a lot of open cuts and scratches. * {{Determinator}}: She ''will'' escape, or die trying. Barring that, she's not gonna do anything to compromise John Connor's safety. %%* ImNotHungry !!Jodie (Leah Pipes) ->''"I got this necklace at this awesome thrift store in Echo Park."''

He doesn't elaborate. * TheLostLenore : For Sarah. ----
