Minder - Characters - Netflix

Mary: A young Black woman from a poor neighborhood with a latent paranormal ability. Strong willed, independent female. Daughter of Doro. Mary must overcome her Patternist father/lover. In this novel Mary shows that being a loner can make you a more independent person. During Mary's transition from “latent” to “active” telepath, Mary creates the first Pattern by mentally latching onto six active telepaths. Mary eventually adds fifteen hundred people to her Patternist community. Mary's father Doro thinks that she has too much power and orders her to cease her additions of Patternists; Mary then kills her father. Doro: A four-thousand-year-old immortal originally from Africa. Doro is the father (both literally and figuratively) of the telepathic group of humans who become the Patternists. Doro is eventually killed by his daughter Mary. Emma: A distant relative of Mary, previously known in Wild Seed as Anyanwu. She is immortal, a healer, and a shape-shifter. Emma agrees to let Mary and her mother, Rina, move into an apartment she owned to ensure that Mary makes it to adulthood - at the request of Doro. Rina: Mary's mother. She is a sex-worker and an alcoholic. Doro uses Rina for his “breeding program” in hopes of creating a telepath better than all the previous ones he has sired. Having Mary has adverse effects on her mind. Karl: Mary's husband and an active telepath, Doro's strongest telepath until Mary goes through her transition.
