File: Sookie Stackhouse
Sookie Stackhouse is the protagonist in The Southern Vampire Mysteries, a series of books written by author Charlaine Harris that was first published in 2001. The series is a first-person account of Sookie's life as a barmaid and telepath in the town of Bon Temps, Louisiana. The first book in the series, Dead Until Dark, won the Anthony Award for Best Paperback Mystery in 2001.
According to the novels, Sookie's telepathic powers manifested as a child and her parents initially considered her to be mentally ill, going so far as taking her to a psychologist and "having her brain scanned every other month". However, Sookie (who is the narrator of the books and stories) mentions one incident when her father asked her to "listen" in on a business meeting to discern the true intentions of a potential client. She told her father the man intended to take his money and her father took her advice, indicating his unspoken belief in her telepathic ability. Her parents died in a flood when she was seven, leaving Sookie and her older brother, Jason, to be raised by their grandmother. As the series begins, Sookie describes herself as someone with very little living family. One of her few relatives is a great-uncle, but she hasn't seen him since she was a child. The reason for this was that Sookie's great-uncle had molested both Sookie and her cousin, Hadley, when the girls were very young, though Sookie didn't discover Hadley's molestation until after her death. Not long after her parents' deaths, (Sookie had told her mother who didn't believe the 'funny uncle' story), Sookie's grandmother bans him from coming anywhere near her home or any of the children again, thus saving Sookie from further molestation.
Sookie lives with her grandmother well into her twenties and they maintain a close relationship until the grandmother is murdered by a serial killer, sinking Sookie into a deep depression. Sookie's great-uncle, Bartlett Hale, is killed soon after. Sookie later learns that her cousin Hadley has been murdered. With the death of Sookie's cousin Hadley, Sookie and Jason are the only remaining Stackhouses.
Eventually, it is revealed that fairy blood runs in her family through her father's lineage. This might be part of what makes her attractive to supernatural creatures ("supes") and vampires in particular.
In the eighth novel, From Dead to Worse, Sookie meets her great-grandfather, Niall Brigant, who is a powerful fairy prince, and the grandfather of her friends, the fairy twins Claudine and Claude. It is also revealed that Hadley left a young son, Hunter, who is now four. He also possesses telepathic abilities. The origins of the telepathic ability are not clear, although an unrelated character states that it is not a fairy trait.
