The Townsfolk of Eureka
Sheriff Jack Carter (Colin Ferguson)Jack Carter is a U.S. Marshal who reluctantly ends up as Sheriff of Eureka. Jack is consistently dumbfounded by the wonders Eureka produces, as well as its propensity to produce things that often threaten the entire town, if not the world. Despite being a man of average intelligence in a town full of geniuses, Jack's admittedly simplistic ideas and ability to make intuitive connections between seemingly disparate events often save the day. (This is in contrast to the other residents of Eureka, who, being stereotypical scientists, tend to over-complicate things and get lost in meantime).
Zoe Carter (Jordan Hinson)Jack's rebellious teenage daughter. Unlike her father, she is intelligent enough to keep up with the town's residents (her IQ is 157), yet like her father, possesses the street smarts most of the town's residents do not. She longs to be a medical doctor, and with the help of Henry's recommendation letter, receives an early acceptance to Harvard's medical program. She dates Lucas but in the altered timeline, they broke up when Lucas moved to Geneva, and she is now showing interest in Zane. She is also a bit more mature and responsible after her time at Harvard.
Dr. Henry Deacon (Joe Morton)Henry is the town's jack-of-all-trades. Although, like most residents of Eureka, he is a brilliant multidisciplined scientist, Henry has ethical objections to the kind of research conducted at Global Dynamics, preferring employment as the town's mechanic. Henry's assistance is often invaluable in defusing the situations the experiments in town create. During Season 3, he was elected mayor as a write-in candidate. Following the change in timeline in season 4, he is suddenly married and is trying to keep the timeline shift a secret. Late into the 4th season, he confides in his "wife" after he realizes he is beginning to fall in love with her.
Allison Blake (Salli Richardson-Whitfield)Allison is a Department of Defense agent who acts as the liaison between Eureka and the Federal Government, and later becomes the director of Global Dynamics. She is always at the forefront of any dilemma that might arise. Although she works for the Do D, she has two PhDs and an MD. Allison is also raising her son Kevin, an autistic youth whose father died when he was still a baby, and Jenna, the daughter she conceived with Nathan shortly before his death/disappearance. After the change in the timeline, Kevin is no longer autistic and she never became director of GD; she is, instead, head of GD's medical science division.
"Jo" Josefina Lupo (Erica Cerra)A tough, no-nonsense cop with a love of firearms. After a brief fling with Taggart, she later develops a relationship with Zane. Zane proposes to her in the Season 4 premiere, but before she can answer him, time is altered to where the two of them never dated, and in fact cannot stand each other. In the new timeline, she is Head of Security at Global Dynamics, her role as deputy taken by the android Deputy Andy.
Dr. Douglas Fargo (Neil Grayston)A junior scientist who's always been treated dismissively by his peers. Accident prone, he more often than not ends up a victim of the disasters befalling the town. He has also caused a fair share of the problems. Neil Grayston also provides the voice of S.A.R.A.H. (Self Actuated Residential Automated Habitat), the bunker home Jack and Zoe live in. In the alternate timeline, he is head of GD, and not well liked by the staff because of his alternate's imposing and intimidating manner. He has difficulty in this new role as his alternate was a domineering egomaniac, an act he has trouble pulling off. Even so, the job has begun to transform him into a more decisive and capable leader as the weight of responsibility has forced him to stand up to other GD employees, the Department of Defense, and military generals.
Dr. Nathan Stark (Ed Quinn)One of Eureka's top scientists. He and Jack are frequently at odds, though both respect each other. He is formerly married to Allison, and they rekindled their relationship in the second season. They were supposed to get remarried in the third season, but he dematerializes while saving the world from a time paradox on the day of their wedding, an event that apparently still occurred in Season 4's alternate timeline.
Zane Donovan (Niall Matter)A rebellious genius, recruited in the second season as an alternative to imprisonment after being arrested for fraud (allegedly causing the New York Stock Exchange to crash). He also develops a relationship with Jo Lupo shortly after his arrival in Eureka. However, this relationship is erased with the change in timeline. He is back to being a perpetual prankster and a low-level nemesis of Jo, though he shows signs of improving because of the trust she puts in him.
Dr. Jim Taggart (Matt Frewer)Taggart is a somewhat eccentric animal expert. He also does work in geophysics.
Dr. Holly Martin (Felicia Day)Holly is a computer science expert and Fargo's love interest in Seasons 4 and 5.
Trevor Grant (James Callis)An associate of Albert Einstein and one of the founding members of Eureka. In the original timeline the Einstein-Rosen Bridge is called the Einstein-Grant Bridge after him. He time-travels to the present with the main characters, resulting in the new timeline. He returns in the series finale to buy GD after it loses government funding, saving Eureka.
Grace Monroe (Tembi Locke)Henry Deacon's wife in the new timeline. She is later revealed to have been a Consortium spy recruited by the new timeline's Henry. However, she'd stopped long before she was arrested.
Vincent (Chris Gauthier)The owner of Cafe Diem, a local restaurant. Vincent's restaurant has no menus as he is able to make anything that a customer orders. He is another one of Eureka's resident geniuses, having a doctorate in molecular gastronomy.
Isaac Parrish (Wil Wheaton)Head of Eureka's Non-Lethal Weapons department.
Larry Haberman (Christopher Jacot)A GD employee.
Dr. Beverly Barlowe (Debrah Farentino)Beverly was the town psychiatrist. She secretly works for a mysterious organization known as "the Consortium", which has expressed a desire to exploit Eureka's innovations by whatever means necessary. A primary villain in Seasons 1 and 2, she is absent for all of season 3 but returns in the Season 4 Episode "Stoned" and meets with Dr. Trevor Grant in a clandestine meeting where she reveals her connection to him and his secret plans in 1947, thereby luring him into cooperating with her and her organization. She escapes capture when her plot is foiled.
The ConsortiumPrimary villains in Eureka. An organization, out to prevent "things mankind is not yet ready to use" from being misused. Of course they are the ones who get to decide who uses what, and to what end. The Consortium has existed for a very long time. Almost nothing is known about them, except for the fanaticism to their purpose.
General Mansfield (Barclay Hope)The liaison between Global Dynamics and the Department of Defense.
Senator Michaela Wen (Ming-Na Wen)Head of the Senate Committee that oversees Global Dynamics.
