Theodore Newlin is a fictional Reverend and a minor character featured on the HBO television series True Blood. Played by actor Randy Oglesby, he appeared in the second episode of season one, "The First Taste".
Theodore Newlin was a Reverend and staunch advocate of the anti-vampire campaign that had been sweeping across the nation. His rival in the American Vampire League was Nan Flanagan, who was pushing for equal rights legislation for vampires. Vampires who disliked Newlin's policies decided to take matters into their own hands. Guided by the actions of a vampire named Stan Baker, the Newlin family died in a "car accident" in 2008. Theodore's only surviving son, Steve Newlin, took up his father's cause and became the leader of the Fellowship of the Sun, which was secretly a training ground for vampire hunters.
