Caroline Bellefleur is a minor character in the fourth season and sixth season of True Blood . She is played by guest star Katherine Helmond in Season 4 and Helen Slayton-Hughes after that and makes her first appearance in "I'm Alive and on Fire". She is the grandmother of Terry Bellefleur, Andy Bellefleur and Portia Bellefleur. Caroline is the oldest living member of the Bellefleur family.
At first Caroline seems very timid and family oriented. As it turns out she is very controlling, uptight and old fashioned. She prides herself in her family and her knowledge of her long family tree. She seems to put up the front that she is still wealthy although the Bellefleur family has lost their large wealth some time ago. She seems at first that she does not mind vampires as she allows Bill Compton to date her granddaughter until she realizes that the vampire is apart of her family tree and then asks him to not continue the relationship which Bill obliges.
In season 6 however she seems more unaware of rudeness as she finds Alrene's outbursts at the untoward and during her grandson Terry's funeral she has no problem with speaking loudly and rudely about many people present including Sookie, Layfayette and Big John Dixon.
Bill Compton accompanies Portia to visit her grandmother. Caroline eagerly discusses her family history with Bill, asking about how well he knew her ancestors. They suddenly, both realise to their shock that Bill and Portia are actually distantly related due to his daughter Sarah Compton, having a child with one of the Bellefleurs. Portia is oblivious to this and Caroline insists that Bill leave immediately to which he complies. .("I'm Alive and on Fire")
After Terry is killed, Caroline, Andy, Portia and Arlene prepare to make funeral arrangements but Caroline and Arlene come into conflict when Caroline announces that Terry's funeral will include a gun salute, as per the Bellefleur family tradition. Arlene thinks this is ridiculous as Terry was killed by a gun and she leaves the room. ("Dead Meat") Caroline is later seen in the front row at Terry's funeral with Arlene, Portia, Andy, Coby, Lisa and Adilyn and seems to insult many of the guests. She asks Portia is Lafayette is a boy or a girl before commenting that there were a suprising number of negroes at the service. An embarrassed Portia tells her to be quiet.("Life Matters")
