Character Bio

Jim Kent photo
Jim Kent was a CDC administrator who works with Ephraim Goodweather and Nora Martinez in investigating and controlling the vampire outbreak.

He secretly fell under the influence of Thomas Eichhorst, a vampire working for the Master. Jim first allowed the van with the coffin to pass through the security at John F. Kennedy International Airport, even though he expresses regret later. Jim is persuaded to collaborate with Eichhorst in exchange for his wife to be included in a clinical trial of a monoclonal antibody that showed promising results against her form of cancer.

Eichhorst explains that the company he runs through Eldritch Palmer finances the research project. He became infected by one of the vampires and was executed by Vasiliy Fet who grabbed a gun while Jim and Ephraim were mid-discussion that they could save him by means of chemo or radio therapy. Jim reluctantly wanted to be killed fearing he would become a danger for his wife and parents.
