"They killed my Cooter!"
―Debbie Pelt, telling Russell that Sookie and Alcide killed Cooter

Deborah Susan Pelt, better known simply as Debbie, is a werewolf on the HBO original series True Blood. Played by American guest starring actress Brit Morgan, Debbie makes her debut on the episode "9 Crimes" in the series' third season. The pathologically jealous and vigilant on and off girlfriend of werewolf biker Alcide Herveaux, Debbie plays a recurring role through the series' third, fourth, and fifth seasons. Serving as an antagonist in the third and fourth seasons, and played by American guest starring actress Heather Hopkins in flashbacks of a young Debbie, Debbie meets an untimely demise on the episode "And When I Die" at the end of the series' fourth season. She appears once more, in a flashback on the episode "Everybody Wants to Rule the World", in the series' fifth season.


Debbie was mean-spirited and vindictive, and her relationship with Alcide had been tumultuous. She was also pathologically jealous and vigilant. She became maniacal after being bested by Sookie on many occasions. However, most of this behavior was due to being addicted to vampire blood, as when she was clean, she was shown to be a fairly pleasant and nice person, even willing to help Sookie on occasions. That said, Debbie still felt jealous about Sookie which eventually drove her to take V again and go after Sookie.



Debbie and Alcide when they were younger.

Debbie was in the pack since she was a teenager. Jackson Herveaux, Alcide's father questions Debbie if she'll choose between human or pack. Debbie chooses pack.

Later on, Debbie was engaged to Alcide Herveaux, and would have done anything for Alcide when they were together but he wouldn't give her a baby because he didn't want to bring another one of their kind into the world. ("Hitting the Ground") This is part, if not all, of the reason she left him for Cooter.

Season 3[]


Debbie at Lou Pines

Sookie and Alcide come to Lou Pine's for Debbie's engagement party. There Debbie meets Sookie and when Alcide comes to her rescue, Debbie tells Alcide she's happier now then when she was with his "pussy pack". Eventually Cooter walks over but Debbie tells him that he should let Alcide stay and watch, since that's the only way he'll understand and leave them alone. During the ceremony, Debbie is branded. ("9 Crimes") The next morning she visits Alcide's apartment and threatens Sookie for sleeping with Alcide. ("Trouble")

He says that he is in love with Debbie, and that she should not be afraid of losing him. ("Cold Grey Light of Dawn")


Feeling abandoned by Alcide who in her impression, worries too much about Sookie, she makes him promise not to approach her anymore. However, he breaks his promise by going to rescue the telepath in the cemetery whilst a battle rages between vampires, and Marnie and the witches, without realizing that Debbie (in the form of wolf) has followed him.

Sookie tries to free Eric but is unable to because he is hypnotized under a spell. Sookie reads the thoughts of Tara, who is being held hostage by Marnie.

However, Tara takes the shot to the side of her head to save Sookie, shocking Debbie long enough for Sookie to charge her down and disarm her. Sookie elbows her in the struggle and grabs the shotgun.

Powers and Abilities[]

Debbie Punch.gif

Debbie was a werewolf. In wolf form she was more likely more powerful than a human, but weaker than a vampire of a moderate age. In human form however; she can be defeated in a fight- as seen between Debbie and Sookie. (Debbie and Sookie strengths were enhanced during the fight due to vampire blood). In human form she displayed heightened senses and she can make her eyes glow by will or strong emotions.
