||Mick St. John, played by Alex O'Loughlin
To the human population of Los Angeles, Mick St. John is just an average private detective. In reality, Mick is a vampire, and his dashing good looks hide an age much older than anyone would think.
Mick was a normal man up until the early 1950's, and had even previously fought in World War II. In 1952, Mick met and was quickly seduced by a centuries old vampire named Coraline Duvall. She turned him on their wedding night, and the two remained together for several decades.
In 1985, Mick encountered and saved the life of a young girl named Beth Turner, who he felt a strong connection to. In the present day, Mick and a now grown up Beth meet again, this time with him working as a P.I. and her as a reporter for a website called Buzzwire. While the two initially have a working relationship, it quickly leads to something of a more romantic nature.
||Josef Kostan, played by Jason Dohring
Josef is pretty much like Mick's right hand man. Mick usually consults Josef with an important vamp question. He has over 400 years of experience. He's usually pretty sarcastic but he's always there when Mick needs some serious advice. He is the exact opposite of Mick. He loves being the top of the food chain and takes as much advantage of it as he can. He is extremely rich and likes to brag. He keeps trying to get Mick to appreciate what he is, to no avail. He never really falls in love, until we learn that way back in the 50s, he met a beautiful woman, Sara, her father was filthy rich. He fell in love and told her what he was. She thought it was amazing and wanted him to turn her so they could be together forever. He couldn't resist, so he tried, but something happened with her DNA or something, because instead of turning into a vamp, she has been in kind of a LIMBO since the 50s. She hasn't aged, but she isn't really human or vamp. Josef was crushed. Instead of abandoning her, he hired a nurse and keeps her in an apartment in NYC. He spares no expense to keep her alive. He visits her every once in a while. Sarah's dad hired an assain to kill Josef and the assain was told to blow him up because that's the only way to do it! And Josef almost died! Mick thought he was and he cried w/ Beth but then he was in Mick's apartment. Mick went after the assain and killed him. Josef was safe. For now, until he ticks off someone else! One of his favorite thing to do is to beat the "younger" or newer vamps at Poole. He's really good and he likes to bet on the games.
