"I did not survive four lousy husbands, a serial killer boyfriend and the sort of suicide of my love Terry, to die in the dingy basement of a fucking vampire bar."
―Arlene Bellefleur, to Holly, Jane, and Nicole[src]

Arlene Fowler Bellefleur is a major character on the HBO original series True Blood. Played by American starring actress Carrie Preston, Arlene made her debut in the series' premiere episode, "Strange Love", in the series' first season, and has remained a prominent character through the series' first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, and seventh seasons. The current owner of Bellefluer's Bar and Grill, and friend to Sookie Stackhouse, Arlene has been married five times, and has three children, Coby, Lisa and Mikey. Married to Terry Bellefleur in the fourth season, and taking his surname as her married name, her marriage was abruptly halted due to Terry's untimely death in the series' sixth season. Arlene was last seen in the series' finale episode, "Thank You", in the series' seventh, and final, season.


Arlene is a sassy Southern woman who sees herself as spunky; she says what she wants, sometimes disregarding others' feelings. Arlene is a fair-weather friend. Sookie finds herself working Arlene's shifts when she needs to leave early and takes care of her kids while she is at dates. Still, a lot of her flightiness at work is due to how much she worries about her children, and it is apparent time and time again that they are her whole world. 

Arlene also proves to be a caring and loving individual. She is fiercely protective of her children, refusing to leave her burning house until she found them. While she has a good heart, she is often apt to resort to bigotry (directed at vampires) and openly disapproves of Sookie's relationship with Bill. Arlene often makes remarks that have distinctly racist undertones though this often appears to be unintentional. Despite her flaws, it is clear that she's capable of deep love and devotion, as seen in her relationships with Terry Bellefleur and her children.


Powers and AbilitiesEdit


Arlene seeing Rene's ghost.

Arlene is a psychic medium. She has the ability to see the spirits of the deceased. As shown, when she was able to see the ghost of her deceased love Rene. Also, she was able to see the ghost of Mavis an African Woman after Mikey because she felt as if Mikey was her own son who was killed.

Her mediumship explains why Mikey can see ghost. Most likely, passed on to him by his mother. 

The current extent of her powers are not fully shown. It is not known yet if she is a natural born Wiccan or not.

  • Although it has never been addressed directly, Arlene seems to possess qualities reminiscent of a medium, albeit one of far less power than Lafayette Reynolds. She was able to see the ghosts of René, Mavis and Zaafira. If she is a medium, even one of lesser power, this would explain Mikey's mediumship.
