Sookie Stackhouse

First appearance: "Strange Love"
Occupation: Waitress
Species: Human Telepath & Fairy Hybrid

Sookie is a telepathic waitress in a small-town restaurant and the main protagonist of the series. Because of her ability, she has difficulty forming lasting human relationships. Upon discovering that she can't read Bill's mind, she becomes involved in a love affair that turns the entire town against her.

She also finds herself entering into a world of creatures and supernatural conflict that surpasses her worst nightmares. She has lived with her grandmother, Adele Stackhouse, since childhood, after the death of her parents. By the end of the first season, public opinion has shifted in her favor and her relationship with Bill is more widely accepted.

Sookie has been shown to have several powers in the show. The exact nature of all of her powers hasn't yet been shown. Her first power is telepathy which includes the ability to hear thoughts and read people's minds. She has had this power her entire life, and it often led her to become an outcast in her youth until she learned to gradually control it. So far, it's been explained that her grandfather, Earl Stackhouse, had the same ability.

Her second ability is Photokinesis which is the ability to generate, wield or control energies with her mind. It manifests itself as a blue/purple bright light emanating from her hands. The exact nature of this power is unknown with even Sookie being surprised by it. She uses this power for the first time against Maryann, ("New World in My View") then again on Maryann's offering statue to knock it down in the second season ("Beyond Here Lies Nothin'").

In the last episode of the third season, Russell Edgington, while handcuffed to Eric in the sunlight demands her to free him and take him back inside, he reliases that for Sookie to use her Photokinesis she has to get angry so threatens to kill everyone she cares about. thus her ammount of anger releases her power as a now blast of sunlight like light, similar to Claudine and the other Fairies, she then also uses it like Telekinesis by sending Russell flying into a wall.

He meets Amy at Fangtasia while attempting to score V, to which he has become addicted. After Amy is killed, he comes to believe that he is responsible for the murders and turns himself in; while in jail, he is recruited by the Fellowship of the Sun, an anti-vampire church.

During the second season, Jason becomes more involved with the Fellowship, attending a leadership conference with the Rev. Steve Newlin and his wife Sarah, the church leaders.

He shoots Eggs in the head in the season finale when he thinks that Eggs is going to hurt Andy. He is told to run by Andy, who cleans his fingerprints from the gun, and assumes responsibility of the murder, claiming that Eggs was the wanted killer of Miss Jeanette and Daphne.

After he and Maryann move into Sookie Stackhouse's house, the water heater breaks, and he travels out of town with Tara. During the drive, he leads the two to a site where a human sacrifice seemingly took place; later this suspicion is confirmed with the victim identified as Miss Jeanette. Unnerved by the experience, he becomes increasingly more alarmed every time he is unable to account for his whereabouts when he "blacks out" (more specifically, when Maryann has taken control of his actions).

Once he's freed of Maryann's influence, he has a complete breakdown upon finding blood all over his hands. Later, he asks Sookie to help him regain his memories. Finally being shown the deaths of those he killed under Maryann's control, he becomes lost in guilt and confusion.
Later that night, he approaches Andy Bellefleur with a large ritual knife, looking to confess for the crimes he committed. Deeply disturbed, he attacks Andy in his confusion and knocks the detective to the ground. Trying to protect his friend, Jason Stackhouse shoots Eggs and kills him. However, Andy takes Jason's gun and quickly dismisses him before people come out for the gunshot, taking the responsibility upon himself.

Cause/reason of death: killed by Jason Stackhouse



So i had to make a list of true blood characters. I made two lists, one for the humans other for the vampires. I've been watching true blood from the start and I love it. I'm not into that "vampiremania" like many teenagers nowadays and I just hate twilight and that shit.

Sookie is here, even though she's part fairy.

The witch is something that was just introduced at the end of True Blood, season three. There are two types of witches in True Blood. The first is the Wiccan. These witches aren't as powerful as a full witch, though they are more numerous. Wiccans can perform ritualistic magic which is most often nature oriented. The other type of witches found in True Blood are true witches. These creatures - who appear human - are MUCH tougher than their Wiccan counterparts. They have power over vampires and shifters, alike.

True Blood: Vampires
