Leadership & Law
The Commander-in-Chief of Texas.
- Nice Hat: A big cowboy hat.
John Franklin Fry
General Frank Blanchard
- Big Good: The one senior Texas official who finally listens to Miles and Monroe and turns against the Patriots.
- Fan Disservice: During a BDSM scene in his first appearance.
- Retired Badass: He needs to be talked out of retirement to join in on the plot's main action.
- Safe Word: Invoked and played for laughs when Blanchard attempts to use one when Miles and Bass sneak up on him while he is blindfolded during a Kinky Spanking session. Bass takes over the spanking and just spanks him harder each time he uses it.
The schoolteacher in Willoughby, and Aaron's girlfriend.
- Hot Teacher: She's the headmistress of the school in Willoughby.
- Stuffed into the Fridge: She's killed by Horn, and stays dead because...well, why? The nanites brought Aaron back to life, but they only turn up after her death to kill Horn.
- Token Romance: Other than setting the stage for the manifestation of Aaron's powers—and even then, not consciously by him the relationship between Cynthia and Aaron really doesn't connect to the larger plot. She mainly exists to be used as bait by the Patriots, but Aaron being the type of guy he is wouldn't let anyone come to harm on his account, relationship or not.
- We Hardly Knew Ye: Despite being a major character for half a season, she doesn't get much in the way of development.
Kenneth 'Ken' Dawson
The butcher in Willoughby, Texas.
- The Mole: For the Patriots.
Sheriff Mason Gray
The town sheriff of Willoughby, Texas.
A psychotic, former school headmaster and leader of the Andover Clan attacking Willoughby, Texas.
- Even Evil Has Loved Ones: He has a wife that he loves to a horrific degree.
- Evil Teacher: Former headmaster of a boarding school, now a ruthless bandit. Apparently, his students became members of his gang.
- Faux Affably Evil: He offers his guests tea and seems genial enough, but he's quick to drop the veneer and reveal himself as a depraved sociopath.
- A Father to His Men: Refers to those under his employ as 'my kids'. It's a habit he's retained from his days as headmaster of a boy's school.
- Hoist by His Own Petard: Miles manages to stab him with his own knife...while he's holding it.
- Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: With his own knife, no less.
- Pædo Hunt: He himself implied that he was keeping child porn on his computer before blackout hit.
- Yandere: His wife kills herself to get away from him.
- Driven to Suicide: Her yandere husband scared her enough to kill herself.
- Fate Worse than Death: She considers her life with Titus to be one; she's weak, bedridden, in pain and is just barely surviving because her husband forcefully gives her blood transfusions from innocent people.
- Ill Girl: She's diabetic, which is a death sentence in the post-electricity world. Her husband finds ways to keep her alive, although she's not a fan of his methods.
Aaron Pittman's wife, whom he abandoned after the blackout.
- Beware the Nice Ones: She's a sweet lady, but she killed a man and dodged a bounty hunter with some degrees of success.
- But Now I Must Go: In her second appearance, she goes back to Texas.
- Mama Bear: she killed a man who tried to hurt her daughter.
- Nice Gir]: Priscilla is a pretty pleasant person all-round.
- Put on a Bus: Aaron abandoned her when it became clear that his general uselessness would get her killed.
- The Bus Came Back: Aaron encounters Priscilla again in the Plains Nation and is instrumental in saving her from a bounty hunter attempting to return her to the Monroe Republic, allowing as much reconciliation between Aaron and Priscilla as is realistically possible under the circumstances. The bus seems to have dropped her for good this time in Season 2, thanks to the nanites enforcing Priscilla's and Aaron's One True Pairing status from their point of view.]]
