Has there been a denser soap-operatic universe in recent TV history than True Blood’s? Running through the many convoluted love stories, supernatural plotlines, and centuries-old beefs would surely take longer than an hour or two sipping whiskey at Merlotte’s Bellefleur’s. An easier, though still arduous, way to measure how ornately the series has been constructed is by flipping through the dizzying number of characters it has introduced (and in so many cases, killed off gruesomely) over the course of its seven seasons. But how much do you even remember about them? We thought we’d test your recall of 50 different True Blood characters — from main protagonist Sookie Stackhouse to bit players — with this superfan quiz. Select the correct description from the four choices next to each character’s image to see whether you can separate fact from Fangstasia.
