Eli is a vampire that was part of Lenore's nest and who lived in Red Lodge, Montana.


Eli lived in Montana until Gordon Walker began exterminating his kind. He wanted to fight back, but Lenore chose to run. The two gathered their remaining vampire friends and escaped the area.

Alongside Lenore, Eli chose not to feed directly from humans.

Years later, Lenore stated that her whole group began feeding on innocent humans again due to Eve's influence. Likely, as a result, Eli was hunted down by hunters.



  • Eli's actor, Ty Olsson, returns in Season 8 to play recurring character Benny Lafitte. Like Eli, Benny is a vampire that doesn't harm humans though Benny feeds on stolen blood transfusions rather than cattle blood.
