Occupation: Second in Command, Shreveport Pack
Who is Rikki Naylor?
Rikki is a tough werewolf responsible for bringing Sam Merlotte (Sam Trammell) to the Shreveport pack for questioning in the whereabouts of their pack leader, Marcus Bozeman. Rikki was about to kill Sam, but while she was forcing him to dig his own grave, Alcide Herveaux (Joe Manganiello) admitted that he was the one who killed Marcus.
Initially frustrated with Alcide’s refusal to take over as pack leader, Rikki gained respect for the handsome werewolf when he challenged corrupt leader J.D. , and stepped up as Alcide’s second. While training for the fight, the sexual tension between Rikki and Alcide rose, and the two eventually ended up sleeping together.
Enhanced by vampire blood, J.D. gained the upper hand and was about to kill Alcide when the pack intervened. Since he didn’t get his way, J.D. then forced Rikki to overdose on V, hoping to kill her instead to get his revenge.
Alcide’s father saved Rikki’s life by giving her an infusion of silver, and her now-enraged lover took a dose of super-powered V himself in order to kill J.D. and take over the pack. With a recovered Rikki as Alcide’s Second in Command, will the Shreveport wolves be able to hold their own against the vampires?
