Who is Jessica Hamby?
Sired by Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) as part of Bill’s punishment for murdering another vampire, Jessica Hamby is a young vampire who must constantly deal with self control due to her petulant nature and emotional teenage outbursts.
Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Pacquin) attempted to bond with Jessica by taking her to visit her parents, where Jessica flew into a rage and almost killed her father for the beatings he had inflicted on her when she was a human. Fortunately, Bill stopped her before he was dead and glamoured the family into forgetting about Jessica.
Jessica quickly caught the interest of Hoyt Fortenberry, and the two started making out as soon as they met. Their relationship was put through many tests as she explored her new life as a vamp, and eventually Jessica broke Hoyt’s heart; first by breaking up with him, and again by sleeping with his best friend Jason Stackhouse (Ryan Kwanten). In addition to healing Jason more than once with her blood, she saved him from being glamoured by new vampire Steve Newlin.
Bill summoned Jessica to The Vampire Authority and attempted to get her to embrace the Sanguinista religion by forcing her to turn Jason into her vampire companion, but the headstrong redhead resisted. Now that Bill has emerged from the Blood of Lilith as a powerful God, will Jessica be able to stop him?
