[[caption-width-right:350:''"Go, flourish and don't ever say 'no' to yourself."'']]
->'''Played By:''' [[Series/BattlestarGalacticaReimagined Michelle]] [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Forbes]]

->''"Feeling sorry for things is just an excuse not to celebrate your own happiness."''

A wealthy maenad, who initially presents herself as a social worker. Drawn to Bon Temps due to the potent energy she attributes to a ritual performed by a faux voodoo doctor, she takes an interest in Tara and has Tara move in with her. She is devoted to Dionysus and intends to find a suitable supernatural creature to kill in his honor, hoping to bring him to earth once again.

* AffablyEvil
* AlienBlood: Because she's not even remotely human.
* BigBad: of Season 2.
* BigEater: Even though she didn't need to feed on normal food she would consume copious amount of tropical fruit and other delicacies.
* BitchInSheepsClothing
* BlackBlood: Oh yes, she definitely has black blood.
* BloodyMurder: She didn't use it as a weapon, but her black blood was highly poisonous to vampires (and probably to humans too).
** It's suggested that it is solely through the power of her belief.
* {{Bridezilla}}
* {{Cloudcuckoolander}}: To those who don't know what she really is.
* DeathByIrony
* DeathSeeker: All maenads.
* EmotionControl: Aside from feeding on them.
* EmotionEater: She fed on strong displays of emotions like anger, desire, hunger and et cetera.
* TheFundamentalist: She takes her devotion to Dionysus ''very seriously''
* HairTriggerTemper: After her parties, she tends to get pretty bitchy and irritable.
* TheHedonist
* [[HeyItsThatGuy Hey It's That Girl!]]: Nice to see you [[Series/BattlestarGalacticaReimagined Admiral Cain]].
** Also known for playing [[Characters/StarTrekTheNextGeneration Ro Laren]] on Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration.
* [[HoistByHisOwnPetard Hoist By Her Own Petard]]: Her blind faith in her religion led to her death.
* HumanoidAbomination: Possibly. According to Daphne, Maryann has been alive as long as there's been an Earth to walk on and has been known, or may be the same, as the Biblical demon Lilith, who brought forth all evil into the world. Others have known her as the ancient goddesses Gaia and Isis. And we know that her black blood is poisonous to vampires and she is resistant to nearly all normal and supernatural means of attack (i.e. bullets, vampires, Sookie's powers).
* ImAHumanitarian
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: By one of Sam's horns.
* ALoadOfBull: She worshipped the Horned God and she would also wear a bull mask during rituals, making her look like a minotaur.
* ManipulativeBitch
* MrsRobinson: Being an [[TheHedonist hedonist]] she, probably, doesn't limit herself to young males, but did "deflower" Sam when he was 17. He was a bit scared of her though.
* MsFanservice
* [[OminousLatinChanting Ominous Greek Chanting]]
* APartyAlsoKnownAsAnOrgy: She specialized in hosting this kind of parties.
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: Her age is never addressed, but all Maenads are ancient. If [[UnreliableNarrator Daphne]]]] is to be believed she has been alive for as long as there was an Earth to walk on. The only thing we know for sure is that she's really OlderThanSheLooks.
* ReligionOfEvil: Leads one.
* ShipperOnDeck: She seems to be dangerously on deck for Tara x Eggs. She practically forces them to be together and loves seeing them as a pair. [[{{Squick}} Oh, and she also made them have rough sex.]]
** A popular theory is that her real reason for taking Tara in was seeking out a mate for Eggs. [[PoliticallyIncorrectVillain She might even have been racially profiling..]]
* ShoutOut: In the first episode of season 2, Maryann explains to Tara and Eggs a painting that depicts the god Pan mating with a human mistress. This is likely a ShoutOut to Creator/ArthurMachen's horror novella ''Literature/TheGreatGodPan'', where the outwardly beautiful and charming villainess Helen Vaughan is revealed to be a HumanoidAbomination, namely a daughter of the god Pan and a human woman. It feels safe to say that the character of Maryann Forrester takes a good deal of inspiration from Helen Vaughan.
* SupremeChef: Either Tara and Eggs were high on her EmotionControl or her Hunter's Souffle was heavenly exquisite.
* TooKinkyToTorture
* VillainsOutShopping
* VoiceOfTheLegion: When she calls upon the powers of Bacchus.
* WhoWantsToLiveForever
* WomanInWhite: On the second season finale when she was ready to [[MarriageToAGod marry her god]].

[[caption-width-right:350:[[spoiler:''"It smells so good in here!"'']]]]
->'''Played By:''' [[spoiler:Robert Kazinsky]]

The vampire who attacked and killed Corbett and Michelle Stackhouse. [[spoiler:Later revealed to be a powerful faerie-vampire hybrid.]] He seeks to take possession of Sookie Stackhouse for unknown reasons. [[spoiler:This reason being to turn her into a vampire as well. He killed Sookie's parents to prevent them from killing her for being a fairy.]]

* ArrangedMarriage: [[spoiler:The contract he entered into with John Stackhouse that promises him the first female fae of his clan, i.e Sookie. As Warlow explains to Sookie's horrified parents, it's been done that way amongst faeries for millenia]].
* TheAtoner: He claims to hate that he's taken so many lives. [[spoiler:Ultimately averted. He's TheAtoner when it suits him.]]
* BigBad: Played straight, then averted. [[spoiler:Played straight in the final episode of season 6. With Truman Burrell dead and Sarah Newlin defeated, he steps up as a final antagonist.]]
* BeardOfEvil: One that drops down to his waist. [[spoiler:He shaves it so he can pass himself off as Ben.]]
* [[spoiler:BitchInSheepsClothing: He acts like a remorseful, Anne Rice fellow with Sookie, but when she asks him to wait a little, he shows his true colours as a possessive lunatic.]]
* CruelMercy: [[spoiler:He drains Niall of a substantial amount of blood, but doesn't drink it or drain him completely. Then he throws Niall into the dark dimension that Warlow himself had been imprisoned in.]]
* [[spoiler:DayWalker: His fae side allows him to walk in daylight.]]
* DealWithTheDevil: Him being the devil in his contract with John Stackhouse, which legally gives him ownership over John's first female fae heir. Which turns out to be Sookie.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: [[spoiler:Despite massacring a village worth of faeries, he couldn't bring himself to hurt Niall, who was a little boy at the time.]]
* [[spoiler:EvilAllAlong: Warlow was introduced as a villain, but after being revealed as Ben, it was made to seem that he was much less villainous than his reputation suggested. Until the Season 6 finale, at least.]]
* FantasticRacism: Tells Sookie he considers normal humans to be beneath him.
* HiddenVillain: He's yet to be given a face for the viewers, only having been seen in dark shots as a man with a ZZ Top beard and NiceHat. [[spoiler: He's later revealed to be Ben.]]
* [[spoiler:IHateYouVampireDad: Well, Mom that is. He ''despises'' Lilith for making him into a blood-drinking monster which resulted in him destroying his entire village. He also is less than enthused about her declaration that God commanded her to make him a vampire in order to save the vampire race, and thinks that she is insane.]]
* [[LastOfHisKind First And Last Of His Kind]]: [[spoiler: The only faerie vampire in existence. He wants Sookie so he can turn her into a faerie vampire as well, so they only need to feed from each other to survive and never have to hurt another person again. This horrifies Sookie's parents so much that ''they try to kill her when she's a little girl'' so Warlow doesn't get his hands on her.]]
* [[spoiler:KarmicDeath: Staked by all the living members of the Stackhouse clan that he's been tormenting.]]
* [[spoiler:NinjaPirateZombieRobot: He's part faerie and part vampire]]
* NoSell: [[spoiler:Once Sookie figures out who he really is, she invites him over for dinner, with the intention of weakening him by lacing his food with store-bought silver. He shows no signs of being affected by it whatsoever.]]
* [[spoiler:OffingTheOffspring: The reason he killed Sookie's parents: they (mostly her father) were going to ''kill her'' themselves, rather than let Warlow turn her into a vampire.]]
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: He was turned by Lilith in the year 3,500 BC, which makes him the oldest vampire on the show.
* SealedEvilInACan: He was blasted into another dimension and has remained there for a very long time, until the death of the Faerie Elder.
* [[spoiler:SelfMadeOrphan]]: [[spoiler: Kills his biological parents and almost everyone in his village except for Niall. Then, he ended up killing his maker Lilith by [[KillItWithFire 'giving her to the sun']].]]
* [[spoiler:StalkerWithACrush]]
* [[spoiler:StartOfDarkness: Implied to have been a typical faerie until he was turned. The flashback to 3500BC shows him to have been decent, loving and deeply loved by the rest of his family, given their reaction to him showing up years after Lilith turned him.]]
* [[spoiler:TragicMonster]]
* WalkingSpoiler: Cannot even show his image without spoiling his identity.

[[caption-width-right:350:''"Mine is the true face of vampires!"'']]
->'''Played By:''' [[Film/{{Changeling}} Denis]] [[Series/AmericanHorrorStoryMurderHouse O'Hare]]

->''"Peace is for pussies!"''

A 2,800-year-old vampire, Russell is the vampire king of Mississippi. Though often gentle and polite, he is also shown to be wrathful, manipulative, and somewhat mentally unstable.

* AffablyEvil: He may be a monster, but he's a charming, diplomatic monster.
** FauxAffablyEvil: In [[spoiler:Season five]]
* ArchEnemy: For Eric. He still hates him even after a thousand years and after Talbot's death the feeling is mutual.
* AsskickingEqualsAuthority
* AxCrazy: Following Talbot's death.
* [[spoiler:BackForTheDead: Returns in Season 5, only to be die a true death at the hands of Eric in the finale]].
* {{Badass}}
** BadassCape: Rockin' one in a flashback.
** BadassGay
* BadBoss: He tends to kill or bully his werewolf subjects.
* BigBad: of Season 3. [[spoiler: And season 5, perhaps.]]
** [[spoiler:DiscOneFinalBoss: Gets staked right in the beginning of season 5 finale by Eric]]
* BlackCloak: Subverted, in another characters flash back Russell is shown wearing a Druid style brown cloak.
* CradleOfLoneliness: Does two grisly variants after the death of Talbot.
* CurbStompBattle: Usually any battle against him, being that he's the oldest vampire introduced so far. The main page accurately describes his fight with Bill as "ComicBook/{{Robin}} trying to fight {{Superman}} barehanded." [[spoiler: And in fact no one ever ''does'' defeat him in a fair fight, instead having to use some form of trickery to get the best of him; temporary sun-immunity in Season 3 and staking him while distracted in Season 5.]]
* TheDandy
* DeadpanSnarker
* [[spoiler:DeathByAdaptation]]
* DespairEventHorizon: Following the death of his lover.
* TheDragon: Salomé releases him to make him her own.[[spoiler: As of recently this seems to have massively backfired with potentially catastrophic results.]]
* TheDreaded
* {{Druid}}: In interviews Denis O'Hare has [[WordOfGod said]] that Russell was a Druid priest before becoming a vampire.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: He loved Talbot, and goes insane after he's killed.
* EvilOverlord: He certainly wants to be this, and he's on his way.
* [[spoiler: FamousLastWords: ''"Well...oh, fuck."'']]
* FantasticRacism: Although he wants to unite supernaturals for the purposes of enslaving humanity, he often shows disdain for them. He treats werewolves as expendable, pathetic creatures even though they have been loyal to him for centuries.
* FateWorseThanDeath: Has been buried in concrete.
** SealedEvilInACan
*** [[spoiler: He got better]]
* IHaveManyNames: As a vampire, he's taken many different names throughout his long life.
* ILoveYouVampireSon: Loves his vampire son (Talbot)
* KnightOfCerebus: While this series is not light hearted, his actions have the potential for far reaching consequences.
* LargeHam: [[MoodWhiplash "Now time for the weather. Tiffany?"]], It makes my '''DICK''' hard.
* ManipulativeBastard
* MoralityChain: Talbot.
* [[spoiler: NotQuiteDead: He's baaack.]]
* ObfuscatingInsanity: Acts crazy and like a bloodhound, which he is. But is ''always'' in control. Maybe because he is more powerful than any other vampire known in the show uptil now.
* OhCrap: [[spoiler: When he is killed by Eric.]]
* OohMeAccentsSlipping: An in-universe example, as when Russell gets particularly angry he reverts back to his presumed original Druid accent
* PetTheDog: Sincerely cares about [[MoralityPet Talbot]].
* PsychoForHire: For the NEW authority. Like all psychos, he doesn't take much time to turn.
* SanitySlippage
* RageBreakingPoint: [[spoiler: Salome's threat to re-seal him beneath the ground after continuously chastising and restricting his "fun" was the final straw for him, culminating in him tossing her across the room and telling the entire Authority in no uncertain terms just what he thought of them.]]
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: After Salomé rejects his plan to hunt down the fae to harvest their blood and become daywalkers.
* SocialDarwinist: He makes the subjugation of humans sound down right logical.
* SmugSnake
* SouthernGentleman: Not really, but very convincingly acts like one to fit into his role as King of Mississippi.
* [[spoiler: SurprisinglySuddenDeath]]
* UtopiaJustifiesTheMeans: Honestly believes that vampires being in charge would be the best thing for the world in general.
* [[PersonOfMassDestruction Vampire of Mass Destruction]]
* VillainousBreakdown: When Eric kills Talbot.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: One possible interpretation of the character. Russell believes that humans are not fit to be stewards of the earth so they should step down from their position as the dominant species and let vampires run things.
** Could be seen as a variation of GaiasVengeance.

->'''Played By:''' [[Film/HarryPotter Fiona Shaw]]

->''"Fate brought us together to fight evil. Did you really think no one was gonna get hurt?"''

A very powerful medium who served as a leader of a Wiccan coven at the Moon Goddess Emporium.

* AllOfTheOtherReindeer: Was treated as a freak for much of her life due to her status as a spirit medium.
* AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence: She peacefully passes on into the afterlife after Antonia and Adele convince her to abandon her quest for revenge against the vampires. This makes her the first (and so far, only) season villain to have a happy ending.
* BerserkButton: Being bullied and threatened by others. It seems those years of feeling like an outcast and a misfit eventually ate away at her psyche; she's homicidal and vengeful toward anyone who attacks her.
* BigBad: Of season 4.
* BloodMagic: Occasionally seen cutting herself in an attempt to invoke Antonia.
* BoomHeadshot: Delivered by Bill.
* BullyingADragon: Sort of. The vampires attacked her because her practices meant she had the potential to one day act against them. And since being oppressed is her berserk button, that's exactly what made her snap and start her genocidal crusade against them in the first place.
* DemonicPossession: Subverted. While Antonia was possessing her at first, it eventually became more of a melding of consciousness before culminating in Marnie actually binding Antonia and gaining full control of her powers. Also, after her death, Marnie possesses Lafayette.
* FromNobodyToNightmare
* TheFundamentalist: For her, those caught in the middle are not even CollateralDamage but LesCollaborateurs to vampires.
* HeyItsThatGuy: Ironically, Fiona Shaw is perhaps best known for playing Film/HarryPotter's magic-hating aunt Petunia.
* IJustWantToHaveFriends: The reason she talked to the dead was because they were her only friends. She was shunned by other people all her life because of her powers.
* IneptMage: Her powers are pretty hit-or-miss unless she's being possessed by Antonia.
* InformedLoner: She claimed to be a lifelong outcast despite leading a coven that loved her (until she she started going off the deep end) and considered Holly and Jesus personal friends.
* ISeeDeadPeople: Her most consistent ability when she's not possessed. Apparently, constantly hearing the voices of the dead contributed to her neurotic mental state.
* {{Necromancer}}: The reason the vampires see her as a threat--with the power to control the dead, she could potentially control them too.
* ObfuscatingStupidity: It's revealed that she is doing this when she is egging Antonia on to continue against the vampires and is not a naive witch and helpless victim of possession she came off as.
* ThePowerOfTheSun: The magical barrier she erects around her shop harnesses the power of the sun, killing any vampire that touches it.
* PowersViaPossession
* SanitySlippage
* SoulPower
* StartOfDarkness: While it's hinted that she was a bit mentally unstable all along, she bears no nefarious intentions until after the vampires antagonize her and Antonia shows her visions of the witches' persecution during the Inquisition.
* SympatheticMurderer: The show doesn't paint her murderous actions in a positive light, but the motive behind them is treated much more tragically.
* SympathyForTheDevil: Sookie tries to win her over by telling her that she understands how it feels to be ostracized and picked on. This seems to reach Marnie, until Bill challenges her to come out by calling her a coward. In the finale, she is also portrayed in a very sympathetic light as Antonia and Adele convince her to abandon her quest for revenge so she can be at peace.
* TooDumbToLive: Her downfall can be traced directly to her not knowing what "cauterize" means. As in, Jesus and Lafayette grabbed a few vials of herbs saying they were going to "cauterize" the wounds of the girl Marnie stabbed, even though it simply means burning a wound to seal it.
* {{Wicca}}: Although many of her practices go against some of Wicca's fundamental ethics.
* WillingChanneler: She allows Antonia to possess her in order to protect herself and her coven from the vampires.
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: It's implied at various points throughout the season and finally stated in "Soul of Fire" that Marnie is acting out because she perceives herself as everyone's punching bag and is using Antonia's power as a means to lash out and assert herself. This hardly justifies her actions, but it at least makes them somewhat more understandable. There's also the fact that she was originally just a lonely old woman, who turned to necromancy because she couldn't find meaningful relationships among the living. If the vampires had just left her alone, she would never have become their enemy, but instead they attacked her based on the possibility that she might one day pose a threat to them.

The wife of Rev. Steve Newlin. She claims to have originally supported vampire rights, but that she had an epiphany after her fangbanger sister disappeared. She argues with her husband frequently because he will not give her more of a leadership role in the Fellowship of the Sun. She has a strong attraction to Jason Stackhouse, and moves him from the Fellowship camp into her home so that she can be close to him.

* DumbBlonde: Although she isn't exactly 'dumb' she's not particularly savvy or intelligent. When stopped in her tracks in a TV debate with Nan Flanagan, the best retort she can summon up is, 'I hate your hair.'
