Claude Crane

Claude is one of Niall Brigant's (the fairy prince) grandsons and Claudine's twin brother (they used to have a triplet named Claudette). He is the nephew of Sookie's half-human/half-fairy grandfather, Fintan, and cousin to Sookie's father. His first appearance in a novel is in the fifth novel, Dead as a Doornail, but the character first appears in Harris' short story, Fairy Dust. He makes an impact on all women and is described as being absolutely breathtaking, so lovely that his proximity makes Sookie tense as a “high wire.” He started out as a stripper at Hooligans, a club in Monroe, which he later becomes owner of, and has branched out to print and runway modeling. He is depicted as being six feet tall with rippling black hair, muscles, and a six-pack. He has a pair of brown, velour-soft eyes, a chiseled jaw, and a sensuous mouth with a pouty bottom lip. Women usually say “wow” when they see him, but his interest is men. His ears have been surgically altered from pointed to rounded to look like human ears. Though his physical appearance is magnificent, he is not polite and has a tiny sense of humor. He seems to like and treat Sookie better once it is revealed to her that she is related to him. In Dead in the Family, he moves in with Sookie out of loneliness after his sister, Claudine, is killed, and Amelia moves out.

Claudine Crane

Claudine is Sookie’s fairy godmother and twin sister of Claude (they had a triplet named Claudette, but she is mentioned to be dead in Harris' short story Fairy Dust.) She is also Niall Brigant's granddaughter, the niece of Sookie's half-human/half-fairy grandfather, Fintan, and cousin to Sookie's father. She is first introduced in the fourth novel, Dead to the World (novel). She is depicted as a gorgeous woman, at least six feet, with dark hair and big almond shaped dark eyes. Her skin is as pale as milk, and her legs were "as long as a stepladder"[30] She has a beautiful smile and her skin looks glossy and thin. Sookie says Claudine's skin reminds her of the skin of a plum. In the fourth book, Sookie learns that Claudine is a fairy and that she is in Shreveport due to the various supernatural activities. Later in the books, Sookie learns that Claudine is actually Sookie’s fairy godmother who is working her way up to be an angel. Claudine has saved Sookie from danger on multiple occasions. She goes by Claudine Crane among humans. Claudine is killed in the climactic battle at the end of Dead and Gone, after announcing to Sookie that she (Claudine) is pregnant with a full-blooded fairy child. In the television series, she is shown briefly in a deleted scene where she causes the chain Sookie throws at the Rattrays to wrap around his neck. Bill, who smells her, causes her to flee. Lara Pulver portrays Claudine in HBO's True Blood series. We meet Claudine in S3 when Sookie has a NDE and sees Claudine in a dream like sequence. Claudine warns Sookie about Bill and Vampires in general and disappears. Somehow, Bill realizes what Sookie is because he has encountered Claudine or another fairy before.

Claudette Crane

Claudette is the late triplet sibling of Claude and Claudine who was murdered in the short story "Fairy Dust."

Niall Brigant

Niall Brigant is Sookie's fairy prince great-grandfather. He is first introduced in the novels in the eighth book, From Dead to Worse. He is tall and slim, extremely handsome with long, pale gold hair. Sookie describes Niall as being a lovely creature and having some age to him. His half-fairy son, Fintan, was Sookie's paternal grandfather and not Mitchell Stackhouse as Sookie grew up believing. Niall's enemies attempt to kill Sookie and were almost successful. At the end of the ninth book, Dead and Gone, Niall decides to live in the fairy world and cut off the ties between the two worlds to prevent future conflict.


Breandan is the son of Niall Brigant's older brother. He appears in the novel Dead and Gone,, his goal being to kill every human with fairy blood because he believes they are the reason for the infertility in the fae world. He is killed by Bill when the fairy war breaks into the human world.

Dermot Brigant

Dermot is Sookie's great uncle, Niall's son, and Fintan's fraternal twin brother. He appears in the novels Dead and Gone and Dead in the Family. He is said to look like he could be Jason's twin and it is hard to tell them apart. He ends up saving Sookie from being killed by Colman at the end of Dead in the Family.


He is introduced in Dead in the Family and is Claudine's lover and the father of her late child. He blamed Sookie for the death of Claudine and tracked her down. At the end of the book, he is killed by Dermot when he was trying to kill Sookie.

Neave and Lochlan

Very powerful fairies in the novel Dead and Gone who torture Sookie. They are executed by Bill and Niall respectively. It is also revealed that they were responsible for the deaths of Sookie's parents and the death of Jason's pregnant wife, Crystal.
