Portrayed By

Alexei Romanov is a vampire, and the progeny of Appius Livius Ocella in "The Southern Vampire Mysteries".



The tsarevitch of Russia is given the Roman vampire's blood by Rasputin to help with his hemophilia, so when the Bolsheviks execute the royal family, Ocella is able to locate the boy and save him by turning him. In the beginning Ocella enjoys Alexei's company in every way, but Alexei's spoiled childhood and the trauma of his family's confinment and execution turn him sociopathic, and he begins draining the energy of his maker.

"Dead in the Family"Edit

In "Dead in the Family", hoping his older child can help his younger one, Ocella brings Alexei to Eric, but Alexei becomes a drain on Eric and Sookie as well. He escapes custody twice, resulting in the death of a human each time. Alexei finally becomes completely insane, badly hurting Eric, and his vampire niece, Pam, and killing Bobby Burnham and Felicia. With Ocella in pursuit, he runs first to Jason's house and then to Sookie's, where he severs Ocella's spinal column before gleefully engaging Claude and Colman, the father of Claudine's child, in battle. Sookie is able to ensnare him with a silver chain, and Eric uses a tree branch to send his brother to the final death.


Jason StackhouseEdit

He is shown to be immediately drawn to Sookie's brother Jason. This is revealed to be caused by the fact that he reminds him of a kind man who used to take care of him. Due to this, Alexei likes to be around Jason and as Jason likes kids he even offers to let him stay with him instead of Appius. Unfortunately this is not enough to keep him from going insane and he eventually has to be killed by Eric before he hurts anyone else.
