" Well I guess the only way to get a promotion in this town is to drink like a fish, hallucinate farm animals and kill a black man. Hey! Promotion! "
―Kenya's view of events in Bon Temps [src]

Kenya Jones is a recurring character in the first, second, third, fifth and seventh seasons. She is played by guest star Tanya Wright and debuts in "I Don't Wanna Know". She is a sheriff's deputy on the Bon Temps Police Department.


Season 1Edit

Kenya works as a sheriff's deputy in the Bon Temps Police Department. She is called to the scene of Tara's car accident and arrests her for driving under the influence of alcohol. She seems to be familiar with both Lettie Mae Daniels and Tara. Kenya shows a dislike towards Andy Bellefleur and begins working more closely with Sheriff Dearborne when Andy is removed from the force.

Season 5Edit

Kenya mocks Sheriff Andy when a naked picture of him is posted to Facebook. ("Whatever I Am, You Made Me")

Deputy Kevin Ellis questions Andy Bellefleur at the scene of the shooting of Stake House clerk Junior by Sam Merlotte. Kenya stands by as Sam sniffs around for clues in the back of the store, watching him quizzically. Sam's acute sense of smell draws him to a strange box. He tells Kenya to open the box because she is wearing gloves. When she does so, they find it full of the Obama masks the anti-supernatural murderers have been using. Sam rolls on his back on the floor sniffing. He tells Kenya about the shooter's poor diets and lifestyle. Kenya is concerned and asks Sam if there's anything she should know. Sam looks up sheepishly and says "" ("In the Beginning")

Joe Bob is arrested as a suspect in the supernatural murders. Andy and Jason beat up Joe Bob while Kenya is in the station. They later realize that Bud Dearborne is a link between Joe Bob and Junior and raid his farm. They find him with hostages and shoot him when he attempts to attack them. ("Everybody Wants to Rule the World")

Season 7Edit

While Jason and Andy investigate the origins of a deceased woman Sookie found in the woods, Kenya is left in charge of the station. When Adilyn Bellefleur and Wade Cleary appear to warn her of the Bon Temps residents' plan to steal all the guns in attempt to solve the Hep-V crisis themselves, Kenya prepares to repel them. However, when Karen appeals to her bitterness toward being overshadowed by Jason (despite her superior capabilities as an officer) and the lack of respect Andy has shown her, Kenya sides with the residents and allows them access to the armory. ("I Found You")

Continuing to side with the mob lead by Vince, Kenya perishes in a battle to defeat the Hep-V vamps seeking refuge in Fangtasia. ("Death is Not the End")
