I'm Detective Erin Petrakis-Knopfler. I'm a wife and mother. A former homicide detective and now the chief of police. And I work as a special agent for Alberto Fortier- the vampire-prince of New Orleans, Louisiana. It's a lot to juggle, and some days I do better at it than others. The main thing you should know is that I'm fiercely protective of my loved ones and will do whatever's necessary to keep the city safe. I will call you on your bullshit if you start anything because I'm tired of the bullshit. So play nice, help however you can, and we'll all get along fine.


Erin's Friends & Contacts

Detective
Joe Brink
"Where do I even begin when talking about Joe? What DIDN'T we go through together? I'll say this: I've never had a closer friend who got me like Joe did. We were partners, cabalmates, neighbors, friends. Closer even than friends. I loved his kids like they were family. I watched him die multiple times and it only got harder and harder. He got the shit-end of the bad-luck-stick, and spent most of his final years filled with guilt and regrets. But in the end he found his mission and made the ultimate sacrifice that not only saved his daughter, but all his grandkids and great-grandkids to come. Not a day goes by that I don't feel guilt for following his lead and not saying anything when I saw he was mortally wounded, but I know he wouldn't have wanted anything other than how it went down. I love you, Joe...rest in peace."

Michael Brink
"I first met Michael back in New York at a barbecue at his family's house when he was a small boy-- just a few days after I met his dad, Joe. Before that I'd always had my doubts about a cop being a good spouse or parent, but when I saw Michael with his parents I realized it was possible. They were a strong family, and Michael knew he was loved. Watching that parent-child-bond only get stronger over the years is what convinced me that maybe if I had kids I could have that same kind of a bond with them, too. When Michael shifted into a werewolf in front of Sunny and became known as 'The Miracle,' a lot of pressure came along with being both a werewolf and a celebrity overnight. Add to that he was only 14 at the time! I came down hard on him when I found out he'd cheated on Sunny because I had no understanding of the temptation he'd faced. Now I'm a little wiser. I'm grateful I had the chance to apologize to him and start mending bridges."

Jessica
(Brink) Davis
aka
Jacqueline Walker
aka
Seven

"Jessica had her dad Joe wrapped around her finger probably from the time she was born! Whenever he saw her, his eyes had this way of lighting-up and then going soft. She was always a kind, affectionate little girl. Underneath that was pure steel. It amazes me to think of everything she went through and how well she held up. Oh, she has issues she's trying to work through as a result of it, but not nearly anything as serious or debilitating as what an average person would be dealing with after seeing what she's seen and experiencing what she's experienced. In fact, now she's happily married and a highly-successful musician! I want to be there for her the way Joe was for Trista; to do everything I can to protect her, help her, and support her. And I'm honored that she wants me to be there for her, too."

William Bauer
aka
Raeth

"Being the leader of this cabal has had its highs and lows. I think I got complacent back in our glory-days thinking everyone in the cabal would always be together and would always be able to handle everything that came our way. But one by one over the years we've lost almost everyone-- Mike, Angel, Ayako, Raeth...me and Joe are the only original members left from when we Awakened. When I think back I really miss the days when it was me, Joe and Raeth. The three of us have been through everything together: NYC 1996, where me and Raeth helped each other forget the shit-storm brewing for one night...being stuck in the Wheel for a year where I inhabited Raeth's great-great grandma's body...the Voodooin attacks...the return of the Seers Of The Throne. Raeth may be skittish about coming back to New Orleans, but when I needed his help he dropped everything and came. Damn, I miss the old days."

David Hiromoto
aka
Plato
"When David came back to the Silver Veil there was a lot of head-butting and resentment on all sides. David wanted us to re-create the cabal that he felt like he'd just left moments before he got stuck in time-- which we had no intention of doing-- and we wanted him to understand that even though we didn't do things the same way his old cabal did that we were still the go-to cabal for the city. Still the most respected cabal, if I can be honest. Now I'm the only one left of our original group and David decided to move to St. Louis with Isharu, so I officially disbanded the Order Of The Silver Veil. But once a Silver Veil, always a Silver Veil. I know he'd come help this city if asked."

Sunrise Carver
aka
Sunny
"Back before Michael's return I feel like I'd been neglecting Sunny because of how much time work, family, and city-responsibilities take up. So I'm glad everything worked out between Sunny and Michael when he came back. Sunny's generous and doesn't ask for much in return, but I know she gets lonely pretty easily. Now she's traveling the country by Michael's side, but when they're back in town we always make it a priority to spend time together."

Mark Knopfler
aka
Hartsblood
"Hartsblood and I have had some rough times. After we started having kids I felt like there was a disconnect in how I see things and how Hartsblood sees things-- whether it was city-business or how to raise kids. When John would call home from college with news or for advice, I felt like I was the only responsible parent and Hartsblood and the guys were encouraging John to act like a caveman. But on the other hand Hartsblood is amazing with Kate; they're like two peas in a pod. I want us to be strong again as a couple-- especially for the kids-- because when we were strong we were amazing. I want to remember how it felt when I first fell in love with him."

Tia Carver
aka
Tiamat
"When I'm over at Tia's house nostalgia always washes over me. When we first Awakened, Tia's house was the place to be-- it was the hub of the Mage and Werewolf community. Tia was my mentor, and I was hardly at my apartment because I preferred to sleep on Tia's couch. Especially after I realized her house was where Hartsblood's pack would stay when they were in town! Now Tia and Barry are enjoying their retirement, and Tia agreed to join the new cabal I created with Morgan, so in a way things have come full-circle."

Former Chief Barry Carver
"I was pretty upset when Barry announced that he was retiring. The only reason I didn't put up more of a stink is because our old chief was coming back and I could handle that! Barry has been so excited about retiring for years, and the first thing he did was take Tia on a cruise, so maybe there's nothing to worry about. Well, except for one thing; Barry's health. He needs to make sure he's taking care of himself. I don't want Sunny to have to go through what I went through with my dad."

Raphael
"Raphael has been an interesting Enforcer ever since I handed the reins over to him. He isn't offended that I was Morgan's first choice. I enjoy working with Raphael because we've always seen eye-to-eye on everything we've worked on together. It takes someone who's a little cold to do what we do...someone who won't let the dirty work get to them and who will always do what's needed for the greater good."

Jason Bennett
aka
Morgan
"Morgan's gone through a lot of changes in the past few years. He retired from being Enforcer...he secretly got married and had a daughter...and soon after that got divorced. He seemed directionless and in need of friends. And I also realized that the most powerful mages in the city didn't belong to a cabal. So I rectified both situations by creating a new cabal made up of me, Morgan, Gary Nestor, Tia, and Dr. Ganjar which we named "Eye Of The Just" after an artifact that was handed over to us. (we secretly call ourselves "Team-Force Super-Awesome!) Every time we try to decide who the cabal-leader is, a fight breaks out-- usually between me and Morgan-- so we've given up selecting one. For now.

Samantha Green
aka
Ishtar
"For 2 years we depended on each other to take care of Joe when he was in the coma. I spent a lot of time over there, and got to know her better. I still wouldn't trust her if we were in the shower and she dropped the soap, but I do count her as one of my closest friends! It's too bad she moved away from New Orleans-- especially now that our kids are married and we share the same grandkids. Even though this city is full of bittersweet memories for her, she still manages to come out for any special occasion."

Kirk
"With how busy I am and how me or Hartsblood could be called away at a moment's notice, Kirk is an invaluable help to us around the house. Not only does he make a mean cappuccino, but he's genuinely excited to be our babysitter-- which I can't for the life of me understand, even though our kids ARE awesome! And they love him, too, which makes this a great situation. The other wolves who lived here have all moved out...Levi, Blue, Arthur and Hawkeye...but it's nice to have Kirk as a regular fixture around the house."

"Hurricane"
by 30 Seconds To Mars

No matter how many times that you told me you wanted to leave
No matter how many breaths that you took, you still couldn't breathe
No matter how many nights that you lie wide awake to the sound of the poison rain
Where did you go? Where did you go? Where did you go?
As days go by, the night's on fire

Tell me would you kill to save a life?
Tell me would you kill to prove you're right?
Crash, crash, burn, let it all burn
This hurricane's chasing us all underground

No matter how many deaths that I die I will never forget
No matter how many lives I live, I will never regret
There is a fire inside and it started a riot about to explode into flames
Where is your god? Where is your god? Where is your god?

Do you really want?
Do you really want me?
Do you really want me dead?
Or alive to torture for my sins?

Do you really want?
Do you really want me?
Do you really want me dead?
Or alive to live the lie?

Tell me would you kill to save a life?
Tell me would you kill to prove you're right?
Crash, crash, burn, let it all burn
This hurricane's chasing us all underground

The promises we made were not enough
The prayers that we prayed were like a drug
The secrets that we sold were never known
The love we had, the love we had, we had to let it go.

Tell me would you kill to save a life?
Tell me would you kill to prove you're right?
Crash, crash, burn, let it all burn
This hurricane's chasing us all underground
