     The Fitzgerald Sisters (All three films) 

Brigitte Fitzgerald (Emily Perkins)

The plainer younger sister of Ginger Fitzgerald. She is devoted to finding a cure for Ginger's werewolf condition, though she ends up killing her in self-defense. In the second movie she finds herself struggling with a werewolf curse of her own.

A very similar girl also named Brigitte lived in the North American frontier in the early 1800s, and is one of the heroines in the "prequel" Ginger Snaps Back.

  • Badass Boast
    Ginger: You can't fight what's in us B.
    Brigitte: I'm not like you Ginger; I am stronger.
    Ginger: Funny, that's not how I remember the last fifteen years of your life.
    Brigitte: That's how I remember the last fifteen minutes of yours.
  • Brainy Brunette: Has shown to be very clever and resourceful throughout the first two movies.
  • Chosen One: In The Beginning. According to the Seer, it's up to her to decide whether to kill Ginger and sever the werewolf bloodline, or let Ginger kill her and allow the curse to plague the New World forever. Brigitte rejects both options, kills the Hunter instead and becomes a werewolf along with Ginger.
  • Creepy Loner Girl: An awkward, gloomy, introverted loner whose whole world is her sister and their shared fascination with death. She also has the appearance down.
  • Everyone Can See It: With Sam, with everyone thinking they are a couple. Both Trina and Ginger lampshade this.
  • Grade Skipper: Mentioned in an offhand line by Ginger in the first film, presumably to explain why the two are in the same grade despite Brigitte being younger.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: Described as this by Ginger during an argument, but while she owns up to having always wanted to be her sister, it's less clear if her disapproval of Ginger throwing herself into social situations is due to jealousy (whether having ever craved the life and attention Ginger has started to enjoy, or possessiveness over her precious sister) or a genuine disgust at Ginger for embracing normalcy, which she sneers at. By the time this argument rolls around, her concern is more that Ginger has become a werewolf and is doing everything she can to feel normal.
  • I Hate You Werewolf Sister: Averted, Brigitte loves Ginger more than anyone else, even after she murders three people and is indirectly responsible for the deaths of two others.
  • Looks Like Cesare: Her unkempt black hair and deep eye bags are two of her most distinctive features, along with her perpetual scowl.
  • Morality Pet: Even at her worst, Ginger genuinely loves Brigitte, even if that loves manifests rather... violently.
  • My God, What Have I Done?:
    • After Ginger's death.
    • To a lesser extent Tyler's death in the second movie.
  • Nightmare Fetishist: Initially, at least. She quickly learns that death and the macabre aren't as great as she once thought.
  • Perpetual Frowner: She only shows a real smile once in the entire series.
  • She Cleans Up Nicely: In Ginger Snaps 2. This is partially because Brigitte had hit puberty by the beginning of the movie, but a lot of it also has to do with Emily Perkins persuading the director to have her wear tighter clothes and makeup while filming.
  • Ship Tease: With Sam in the first film. Ginger and Trina seem to notice this and are not amused by this. Likewise, Sam insists he doesn't think of her "like that", to which Brigitte rolls her eyes. It should be noted that in an early script draft, they were more expressly love interests.
  • Shrinking Violet: Brigitte is very shy, which becomes even more obvious after Ginger starts being more outgoing.

Ginger Fitzgerald (Katherine Isabelle)

Brigitte's older sister and best friend. She is obsessed with death and the macabre, and has over the years more or less shaped Brigitte into becoming like her. After being bitten by a werewolf in the woods the night she gets her first period, Ginger finds her body changing, and becomes sexier, more outgoing, and more violent.

A very similar girl also named Ginger lived in the North American frontier in the early 1800s, and is one of the heroines in the "prequel" Ginger Snaps Back.

  • Alpha Bitch: Starts to turn into one when she gets bitten.
  • Alas, Poor Villain: Her death is treated as a tragedy, being Brigitte's best friend growing up and leaving Brigitte feeling lost at not only her sister's death, but their relationship falling apart. Adding to that, it seemed Ginger was started to have a Heel Realization before her final transformation, being willing to go with Brigitte to be cured, and being afraid as she can feel the change coming. The first film ends with Brigitte listening to Ginger's brathing as the latter bleeds out, and the second film has Brigitte saying she misses Ginger every day.
  • Ambiguously Bi: Ends up dating and having sex with Jason, but some of her interactions with female characters come off as a little suggestive. When Brigitte asks her if she's going to eat Trina, Ginger dismisses it by saying it would be like having sex with her. This is taken to an incestous extreme, as she is not only very close to Briggite, but when she tries to pull a We Can Rule Together with her, uses sexually suggestive language, and goes as far as to describe her emotional state with masturbatory language and imagery.
  • Bratty Teenage Daughter: Even before transforming, she's a pretty big jerk to her parents, especially her mother.
  • Drunk On The Darkside: At her early stages of the transformation.
  • Extreme Mêlée Revenge: Once she finally has enough of Trina's shit, she breaks her nose. During her transformation, she develops a nasty habit of mauling people.
  • Female Misogynist: Ginger hates things she deems to be feminine or 'girly', and the only other girl who she can stand to be around is Brigitte.
  • Fiery Redhead: Hell, look at the title of the movie.
  • Fully-Embraced Fiend: In the final stages of her transformation, no longer viewing lycanthropy as a curse but a wonderful, empowering thing she wants to share with her sister.
  • Heel–Face Door-Slam: Seems to undergo one after Brigitte infects herself, and seems to be willing to take the cure with her before getting scared when she feels the change coming. Then Sam knocks her out and she transforms while unconscious. What's left is a ravenous werewolf.
  • Knight Templar Big Brother: She is super protective of Brigitte, especially after she gets bitten, to the point of killing people that look at her little sister funny.
  • Nightmare Fetishist: Has a perverse fascination with gore and death from the get-go that she shares with Brigitte.
  • Pet the Dog: In the prequel, Ginger feels sympathy towards Geoffrey, a child who's mother was killed by the werewolf who hit him. She thinks that killing him (the werewolf who bit her) will cure herself but actually hesitates when given the opportunity, and even comforts him when he's crying at his mother's grave.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Shortly after she was bitten, becomes much more violent and assertive as her change gets closer and closer.
    • In the prequel, when she attacks the fort with several other werewolves just to save Brigitte, certainly counts.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: In the prequel, she is far nicer to her sister and a lot more reluctant/fearful of her transformation, frightened that she might put Brigitte in danger.
  • We Can Rule Together: Tries to get Brigitte to turn into a werewolf and become a pack.
  • Wouldn't Hurt a Child: In the third film, she believes she has to kill Geoffrey to cure herself of lycanthropy. Besides the fact it wouldn't work, when Ginger corners Geoffrey, she freezes before she could do anything due to feeling sympathy for the boy.

    Characters in Ginger Snaps 

Sam (Kris Lemche)

A drug dealer who hangs around Brigitte and Ginger's high school. He helps Brigitte develop a cure for Ginger.

  • The Ace: He is respected by the students at the high school. Probably because of his drug supply, but still...
  • All Love Is Unrequited: Trina clealry has a crush on Sam, not that he returns these feelings.
  • Brainy Brunette: Is shown to be a smart guy, using his knowledge of plants and werewolf lore into helping Brigitte try to find a cure for Ginger. This is especially interesting seeing as he and Brigitte just found out that werewolves exist.
  • Everyone Can See It: Trina and Ginger think that Sam and Brigitte have a crush on each other.
  • Genre Savvy: He and Brigitte almost immediately put together what is going on shortly after the beasts death, and the first thing they do is throw "hollywood rules" out the window.
  • Sacrificial Lion: Maybe. Some fans speculate he is the mystery wolf in the second film, there is no Word of God on that.
  • Ship Tease: With Briggite. They get particularly close, and other characters seem to think there is something between them. Ginger and Trina aren't too happy about this, and Sam insists to Brigitte he doesn't think of her like that.

Jason McCardy (Jesse Moss)

Ginger's "boyfriend", a stereotypical cocky teenage boy who was infected through unprotected sex with Ginger. He is cured, but it turns out to be just temporary in the second movie. Maybe.

  • All Men Are Perverts: It's blatantly obvious from the word go that his intent to date Ginger amounts to scoring with her.
  • Body Horror: This is a werewolf movie, but we don't see how far he transforms.
  • Dogged Nice Guy: He acts like one to Ginger.
  • Everyone Has Standards: He thinks what he's going through is fucked up, especially when he doesn't know what's happening to him. Particularly when he kills his own dog.
  • Evil Is Hammy: Not so much evil as it is "Jerkass Drunk On The Darkside" but he really starts to ham it up towards the full moon, particlally when Brigitte injects him.
  • Jerkass: He loudly catcalls Ginger, even when she tells him to fuck off, and later boasts about having slept with her.
  • What Have I Become?: His reaction when he realizes there's something wrong with him. He's completly out of the loop in regards to the werewolves and is scared and confused about what's happening to him. As far as he can tell, what's happening to his body is just from a bizarre STD.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Given the reveal that Monkshood isn't a real cure, Fridge Horror dictates that he became a werewolf himself. Some speculate he's the male werewolf in the second movie, but Word of God suggests that's not the case.
  • Would Hurt a Child: He nearly does this before Brigitte injects him with Monkshood.
    • Would Hit a Girl: He prepares to attack Brigitte when she comes to the kids rescue.

Trina Sinclair (Danielle Hampton)

Ginger and Brigitte's constant bully, who, despite her rude behavior, is very popular among the other students of Bailey Downs High.

  • Alpha Bitch: Ironically, she is not a werewolf.
  • The Bully: Towards the sisters, but mostly Brigitte. This of course incurs the wrath of Ginger.
  • Crazy Jealous Guy: She has this attitude towards Brigitte when she thinks she and Sam are a thing.
  • Death by Falling Over: She slips in a puddle of spilled milk and brains herself on the countertop.
  • Karma Houdini: She never got punished by the teachers for bullying the Fitzgerald sisters. Ginger takes matters into her own hands.
  • Missing White Woman Syndrome: After her death.
  • Pet the Dog: Literally, her dog is pretty much the only thing she's seen caring about.

Pamela Fitzgerald (Mimi Rogers)

Ginger and Brigitte's overly perky mother. She mistakes Ginger's transformations for normal changes during puberty. She's also a little bit crazy, to the point where she finds Trina's dead body, and even plans on burning down their house and run away with them.

  • Adult Fear: When she discovers Trina's body.
  • Amazingly Embarrassing Parents: Ginger views her as this. Considering the woman can't stop saying how delighted she is that Ginger's started getting her period, it's hard to blame her.
  • Mama Bear: Willing to break the law to ensure her daughters safety. In one of the deleted scenes, she turns herself in as the killer of Trina Sinclair so that her daughters won't get arrested.
  • Parents as People: She's not very useful and clearly doesn't understand her daughters at all, but she does love them a lot, to the point of being willing to fake their own deaths and go on the run with them so they won't have to go to jail.

Henry Fitzgerald (John Bourgeois)

The sisters' father. He really isn't all that involved in their lives, although he seems to notice that what's happening to his daughters isn't normal.

  • Deadpan Snarker: Sarcasticlly questions his wife when he notices the girls are suddenly interested in what she has to say.
  • Weirdness Censor: He does notice something is going on with Ginger, but having raised the girls, he thinks what's happening is normal.

Mr. Wayne (Peter Keleghan)

The school's guidance councilor. He is confused by the Ginger and Brigitte's antics, and like the others don't understand them. He is Ginger's first human victim not counting Trina.

  • The Scapegoat: In a deleted scene, the Fitzgerald sisters get out of trouble when they threaten to accuse him of molesting Ginger.

The Beast of Bailey Downs

The werewolf that terrorized Bailey Downs before Ginger. He was the one that bit her, and was run over by Sam shortly after. Not much is known about him, but it's sometimes hinted in the prequel and sequel that Bailey Downs is home to many, many werewolves.


    Characters in Ginger Snaps 2: Unleashed 

Ghost (Tatiana Maslany)

An odd little girl Brigitte befriends in the second movie. She lives in a rehab clinic/hospital with her grandmother, who is a patient. She finds out Brigitte is a werewolf and tries to help her out. She even helps her escape the clinic. It also turns out she put her grandmother in the hospital in the first place, and is planning to use Brigitte to kill her "enemies".

  • Big Bad: Of the second movie. She is the final antagonist of the movie, and throughout the movie has been planning to use Brigitte to kill people she doesn't like.
  • Enemy Mine: Even after her true nature is revealed, she, Brigitte and Alice still fight the werewolf stalking Brigitte.
  • Karma Houdini: For now, but it doesn't look like another movie is being made anytime soon.
  • Replacement Goldfish: Brigitte starts to treat her like the sister she lost.
  • Troubling Unchild Like Behavior: Throughout the movie, she has an irrational obsession with comics, fantasy, and has a tendency to narrate to herself, out loud. And that was all before we find out she tried to burn her grandmother alive and is planing on feeding her to a werewolf.
  • The Unfought: Somewhat Averted, as she does help fight the werewolf during the climax, but Brigitte's attempt to confront her was cut short by the werewolves attack.
  • Wounded Gazelle Gambit: Pulls this one near the end of the second movie.

Tyler (Eric Johnson)

A corrupt worker at the rehab clinic. He sells the patients drugs in exchange for sex. He tries to pull this stunt on Brigitte, but naturally it doesn't work. On the other hand, he behaves altruistically towards Brigitte and Ghost on many occasions, so it's hard to judge him. He was killed by the mysterious male werewolf, shortly after being framed of rape by Ghost.

  • Affably Evil: He sells drugs to the patients in exchange for sexual favors, but he gets legitimately concerned for Brigitte when her lycanthropy begins to advance and seems to have a legitimate and platonic affection for Ghost.
  • Asshole Victim: Kind of subverted; he was an asshole, but he is killed for the wrong reason, and when he gets killed he was starting to lighten up.
  • Evil Counterpart: In comparison, he is a darker meaner version of Sam. Adding to irony, Sam's a drug dealer and Tyler works for a rehab place (but deals drugs as too-in fact, to patients).
  • Really Gets Around: At the expense of the rehabilitation progress of the clinic patients. He gives them drugs in return for sex.

Alice Severson (Janet Kiddler)

The director of the rehab clinic Brigitte was placed in. She doesn't know that much about her, but is concerned that Brigitte is poisoning herself due to her Monkshood addiction.

  • The Dreaded: Justified, she is a rehab director, and almost all the girls in the clinic are still taking drugs. They all fear her wrath if found out.

Unknown Werewolf

A male werewolf that stalks Brigitte throughout the movie. He intends to mate with her and really doesn't take no for an answer. His true identity is never revealed.

  • The Determinator: Will stalk Brigitte anywhere, and kill anyone who tries to help her.
  • The Heavy: He's the one who Brigitte is on the run from throughout the movie and an enemy of the Big Bad (Ghost).
  • Stalker with a Crush: Towards Brigitte. He wants to mate with mate with her and is relentless and persistent in pursuing her.
  • The Unreveal: His human self. Fans speculate he is Jason, but Word of God says that interpretation wasn't intended. Some fans also speculate he is a surviving Sam; there is no Word of God on that.

    Characters in Ginger Snaps Back: The Beginning 

The Hunter (Nathaniel Arcand)

An aboriginal werewolf hunter in Fort Bailey. He is determined to make sure that Ginger and Brigitte pull through to fulfill a prophecy he heard as a boy.

  • Badass Native: He fights and kills large amounts of werewolves singlehandedly both inside and outside the fort.
  • Because Destiny Says So: A firm believer in the Red and the Black prophecy, of which one sister will kill the other. That is his primary motivation for protecting the sisters (primarily Brigtte).
  • Big Damn Heroes: He shoots a werewolf Jean-Pierre whose atttacking the sisters through the eye.
  • The Determinator: Is steadfast in his beleif of fulfilling the Red and the Black prophecy, come Hell or high water.
  • Mr. Fanservice: Gets a shirtless scene.
  • Not So Stoic: The look on his face when Brigitte stabs him says it all.
  • Ship Tease: With both sisters.
  • You Can't Fight Fate: Strongly believes this, but he is killed instead of Ginger.

Wallace Rowlands (Tom McCamus)

The leader of Fort Bailey, which is constantly under siege of werewolves. One of them kills his wife and infects his son, whom he keeps hidden in the fort.

  • Big Good: The closest the film has to this as leader of Fort Bailey, who offers protection to the Fitzgerald sisters. Not that he makes the right decisions throughout the film.
  • Despair Event Horizon: Goes through this over the movie. Being forced to kill his son is implied to be the reason he commits suicde at the end.
  • Driven to Suicide: Kills himself at the end of the film as Fort Bailey burns.
  • Jerkass: Less so than the Reverend or Sergeant James, but on balance he probably falls into this trope
  • Papa Wolf: Pardoning the obvious werewolf pun, is fiercely protective of his son.
  • Pet the Dog: Does this with his son, Brigitte and Ginger.
  • Wild Card: It's hard to tell who he'll side with at what given point in the movie. He'll help the sisters one moment and refuse to punish Gilbert for locking them in the shed the next etc.

Reverend Gilbert (Hugh Dillon)

The resident preacher at Fort Bailey, a fanatical religious zealot. He is distrustful of the sisters, seeing them as evil. His paranoia is intensified by the constant werewolf attacks on the fort.

  • Bad Boss: Resorts to having to hold one of his men at gunpoint to try to test Ginger's blood.
  • Big Bad Duumvirate: Forms one with Jame near the end of the film, effectively taking control of Fort Bailey to kill the Fitzgerald sisters.
  • Due to the Dead: First seen reading his bible over the forts cemetery.
  • The Fundamentalist: As if being a Sinister Minister wasn't enough, he is described as being twisted deadly by scripture, interlaces his religion in his more villainous moments, especially when he blames the aboriginal "heathens" for the werewolf attacks and describes the Fitzgerald sisters and his implied lust for them as temptations that he seeks to destroy.
  • Jerkass: Almost immediately wants to cast out the Fitzgerald sisters out of paranoia, expresses racism towards Wallace in regards to his wife, and in a number of his sermons, blames Wallace's marriage and other such unions for bringing lycanthropy into all of them in the first place.
  • Karmic Death: Attempts to burn Brigitte alive, gets burned alive himself.
  • Kick the Dog: Locks the sisters in a house with a werewolf on the loose, for no discernible reason other than they are outsiders and possibly to distract the monster. Keep in mind, this is before he or anyone knew or had any idea that Ginger was bitten.
  • Kill It with Fire: Tries to do this to Brigitte. It's also what killed him.
  • Knight Templar: His paranoia drives him to protect Fort Bailey from all outsiders, as well as blaming the curse on Wallace's marriage to a native woman, and denounces the sisters as witches.
  • Lust: He's at least subtle about it for the most part, but one of the men at the Fort warns Ginger that he has taken as fancy to her. Also throughout the film, he describes the sisters as "temptations". Unlike most examples of this trope, he tries to deal with these temptations by killing them.
  • Never My Fault: A racial example. He claims that it is the fault of the Native Americans that their being plagued by werewolves when the stories of both the hunter and Claude make it clear that the werewolves are something that the Europeans brought to the area.
  • Politically Incorrect Villain: Repeatedly makes it clear that he blames the werewolf curse on Fort Bailey on white men marrying and having children with aboriginals. He constantly refers to them as savages and heathens and interlaces this in nearly all his sermons.
  • Sinister Minister: Is the Reverend of Fort Bailey and one of the main antagonists of the film.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Has one near the end of the movie. As he prepares to burn Briggite alive, he viciously denounces her as a witch an disciple of the devil, as well lashing out at Wallace.
  • Villainous Valor: He is seen out in the thick of the fight, shooting his rifle the first time the werewolves attack the fort.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Is part of the group that hunts down and prepares to kill Geoffry.

James (J.R. Bourne)

A veteran of the War of 1812, and the Sergeant Major of Fort Bailey. He is less paranoid about the sisters, but is enough of a jerk that he attacks them anyway, simply for being out at night. That's far from the worst of it.

  • Attempted Rape: When he and the reverend abduct Ginger to test her blood, James takes this as an opprotunity to try to force himself onto Brigitte before Wallace intervenes.
  • Bad Boss: Kills one of his men during a werewolf attack and describes how he sees them as expendable, especially if they are not white.
  • Big Bad Duumvirate: With the reverend. While Wallace is technically the one running the joint, by the climax of the film the two of them effectively take over Fort Bailey in order to kill the Fitzgerald sisters.
  • Deadpan Snarker:
    Reverend Gilbert: He's turned.
    James: Turned ugly.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: While his throwing Milo out was mostly for him being mixed race and his father no longer there to protect him, it also stemmed from him getting Wallace to stop his Attempted Rape of Brigitte.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: JR Bourne now stars as a werewolf hunter in Teen Wolf.
  • Jerkass: If not for the Reverend, he would easily be the most assholish character in the movie. He's abrasive, has a bad sense of humour, gets a kick in beating Ginger and Geoffrey, callously leaves one of his men to die. On top of that he's raciest.
  • Kick the Dog: You'd almost think this is a hobby of his as he gives a toast to the Hunter who has been protecting him, describing how he used aboriginals in his unit as cannon fodder; tries to beat the sisters just for being out at night; attempts to force himself onto Brigitte; hunts down and beat Geoffry; and throws the mixed race Milo out to die the werewolf infested forests when his father dies.
  • Sociopathic Soldier: If his constant Jerkass and Kick the Dog behaviour wasn't enough, there's his description how he saw the First Nations in his unit as expendable, and during his Attempted Rape on Brigitte, forced her to bite his hand so hard it draws blood and smear it on her face as a way of getting off.
  • Politically Incorrect Villain: Is openly hostile towards First Nations. He describes how he used aboriginals in his unit as Cannon Fodder, refuses to leave the Fort if it meant being guided by a "savage" and throws out Milo upon his father's death simply because he is mixed race.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Phyiscally beats Geoffry when he's captured and would have killed him had Wallace not done the deed.
  • Would Hit a Girl: Has no problem physically beating Ginger when given the opprotunity to fight her. He's actually enthusiastic about it.

Geffory Rowlands (Stevie Mitchell)

Wallace's son, who was bitten by werewolf that killed his mother. To avoid being killed, Wallace hides him in his house.

  • Creepy Child: The result of being kept in an isolated room and going through a werewolf transformation. Doesn't stop him from being sympathetic though.
  • Mercy Kill: Is shot and killed by his father before Gilbert, James or their men could take the first shot.
  • Morality Pet: To his father naturally, but he also garners sympathy from Ginger, who openly emphasizes with him over his mother and even tries to comfort him at his mother's grave.
  • Pet the Dog: Gets this treatment from both Wallace and Ginger.

Doc Murphy (Matthew Walke)

The oldest man in the fort, a doctor who inspects people for sings of infection.
  • Awesome by Analysis: He recognizes that one of the werewolves is Jean-Pierre due to noticing a tattoo on it.
  • Combat Medic: He's a doctor and a fighter.
  • Cool Old Guy: An affable man with a steady head and the right mixture of firmness and sympathy as he holds Finn at gunpoint and tests him for infection.
  • Frontier Doctor: He's a physician at an isolated fort who patches up Bridgette's hurt foot and tests people for signs of werewolf infection by seeing how they react to leeches.
  • Smart People Wear Glasses: A level-headed, bespectacled man.

Claude (David La Haye)

A French trapper and sometimes crony of James. He marches a guard post on the walls. His brother Jean-Pierre is captain of the overdue supply barge.
  • Big Brother Instinct: He talks about how, after his grandfather told them a story about werewolves, Jean-Pierre promised to save him from them if it came to that.
  • Chekhov's Lecture: His story contains a tidbit about how you can be cured of lycanthropy by personally killing the werewolf that bit you, something the sisters briefly try to do.
  • Decapitation Presentation: Puts Jean-Pierre's werewolf head on a stake to deter the other werewolves.
  • French Jerk: Not at first, but he gets a bit more hostile towards the sisters later on and helps throw out Milo.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy: Unlike most of the others he's clean shaven and has shoulder length hair.
  • Nice Hat: He wears a fur cap.
  • Shut Up, Hannibal!: To Gilbert during one of his creepy sermons.
  • This Cannot Be!: He's initially in denial that Jean-Pierre has been turned into a werewolf and been killed.

Seamus (Adrien Dorval)

A husky, middle aged trapper and the father of Milo.
  • Awesome by Analysis: Calmly identifies a bone the Hunter throws on the table as a wolf jaw and is able to tell the size of it. He's also aware of how twisted Gilbert is and unafraid to say so from the start, and accurately warns the sisters they should be wary of him.
  • Badass Beard: A powerful-looking bearded man who isn't afraid to manhandle James for his treatment of Milo and The Hunter.
  • The Big Guy: He's the huskiest of the fort dwellers.
  • Curiosity Killed the Cast: He goes wandering after a noise in the dark (although to be fair, he was unaware that anyone who had been bitten was still alive).
  • Due to the Dead: He's seen making grave crosses for men killed by the werewolves.
  • Nice Guy: He's respectful to both the sisters and The Hunter.
  • Papa Wolf: He's protective of Milo.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: After discovering that Jean-Pierre was made a werewolf and won't be bringing back supplies and reinforcements, Seamus wants to abandon the fort, which Rowlands refuses to allow.

Milo (Fabian Bird)

Seamus's half-Cree son.
  • The Baby of the Bunch: He's only a little older than Geoffery.
  • Big Damn Heroes: He gets Rowlands to stop James rape attempt.
  • Due to the Dead: He helps dig graves for Finn and Owen.
  • Half-Breed Discrimination: Milo himself seems fine with it but James and Gilbert throw it at him a lot.
  • Hero-Worshipper: An extended version of the dinner scene shows that he's one to The Hunter, asking to hold his tomahawk.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy: He follows his maternal roots of wearing his hair long and has a somewhat delicate face.
  • Native Guide: Briefly fills this role, taking the Sisters to the Hunter's cave when their all thrown out to the fort.

Cormac (David Macinnes)

A man often seen on sentry duty.
  • Badass Beard: A bearded man and one of the more capable men at the fort entailed with the important job of keeping the way into the fort guarded.
  • Gate Guardian: He's positioned at the forts gate, examining anyone outside through the peephole before deciding if they should come in.
  • Nice Hat: He wears a knit cap.
  • No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: James wastes no time in slapping and berating him for letting in the sisters, and they don't seem to appreciate this action too much later on.
  • Oh, Crap!" Gapes and runs after Ginger cuts James throat and open the gate for the entire pack of the werewolves.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: He doesn't get much focus (and is listed third to last in the credits) but he's the one who lets the sisters into the fort in the first place, on his own judgment (something which he is instantly criticized for by some of the others).
  • What the Hell, Hero?: He's upset that Rowlands kept Geoffery alive and how it got Seamus killed.
  • Would Hit a Girl: Downplayed. He knocks down Ginger with his rifle butt when she returns to the fort, but she's known to be infected at that point and he can't bring himself to actually shoot her even as she's opening the gates to let in the werewolves.

Finn McIntyre (Brendan Fletcher)

A member of the fort's company who helps the sisters get settled.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: A soft-spoken, somewhat meek guy who grabs Owen when the werewolves are dragging him out of the fort and manages to hang onto Owen for several seconds in a failed attempt to save him, despite the strength of the werewolves and the great risk entailed.
  • Mr. Exposition: He shows the sisters around and tells them about Geoffrey and his mother.
  • Nervous Wreck: He's fairly timid.
  • Zombie Infectee: He's bitten by a werewolf and tries to kill Murphy's leeches in a failed attempt to keep this from being found out.
