- A well meaning doctor who recently moved to Trinity after recovering
from a bout of alcoholism that, combined with a car, killed both
his wife and daughter. Yearning for atonement, Matt finds more
evil-vs-good struggle in Trinity than he'd bargained for.
- Lucas' deputy and right-hand man. Ben, while not too bright,
has a heart of gold; and when he begins to see things that don't
add up, his conscience begins to bother him. Of course, in Trinity,
listening to your conscience just might be the LAST thing you
- a medical specialist from Atlanta, come to investigate the odd,
unnatural plague that spread through town a while back. One of
the few who have the courage (or the stupidity) to stand up to
Lucas, Billy takes a stand against the sheriff almost from day

- Owner of a local boarding house, Loris is an older woman who

and sensuality that immediately catch the attention of anyone
around him; his manipulation and utter lack of conscience become
apparent upon further scrutiny. Very few people dare to stand
up against him; those who do, usually die - and the ones who don't
often wish they did. What is goals are is not quite as clear;
