She was assigned this role in an effort to move on to the next level, which is angelhood. Sookie's great-grandfather is over years old, and her half-human great uncle is centuries old. Those who have fairy blood in them but are not full-blooded fairies are immune to the effects of iron, lemons, and limes, while maintaining some of the attractive qualities of fairies. Niall states that Sookie and Jason have both inherited the beauty of the fairies, but only certain creatures can tell they are part-fairy.
As a genetic quirk possibly due to fairy blood , Jason greatly resembles his great uncle to the point where others are unable to differentiate between the two of them. Sookie appears to have inherited more magical fairy powers such as immunity against mind spells from vampires and maenads , while Jason only has the power of attraction and seduction.
However, most assume this is mainly due to his physical appearance.
It is also stated in one of the books, by Mr. Cataliades, that Sookie's telepathy is not a trait she obtained from her fairy blood. Sookie's telepathy is demonic in origin, specifically, Mr. Cataliades granted it to anyone of Sookie's grandmother's bloodline born with an "essential spark" or openness to the supernatural world. In this story, it is also implied that Fairies have the ability to cast spells, as Claudine was muttering something under her breath to hypnotise or calm down the people she and her brother, Claude, were interrogating.
Claudine also magically appeared to aid Sookie when she was in mortal danger on a number of occasions, however, she hinted that there were limits to how and when she could perform that trick. Sookie was not always aware of her fairy godmother's timely interventions. It is also known that fairies can conjure objects, demonstrated by Claudine in "Fairy Dust", when she summoned a contract, and in Dead to the World , when she changed her outfit magically.
A fairy, Preston, also displays the abilities to shapeshift and to seduce even Sookie, who is usually telepathically resistant to such abilities. Telepaths are humans who can read the minds of other humans and feel the emotions of different creatures that are portrayed in a creature's "brain signature". Vampires have a "hole" as their signature, so telepaths cannot read their mind. However, Sookie occasionally picks up a few flashes of thought from vampires.

Were and shifter signatures portray emotions or colors. Demons' signatures are compared to a buzzing sound or like the "static in a radio station". Maenads' signatures are represented as an endless mystic chant. Fairies and a few powerful witches can block their minds from telepaths. Sookie refers to their minds as being "shielded". Telepaths are rarely encountered in the supernatural community. It is revealed in Dead Reckoning that Sookie's power of telepathy was granted to her family by the half-demon Desmond Cataliades.
He was great friends with Sookie's half-fairy grandfather Fintan, and so he became a sponsor to Fintan's descendants and was required to give them a gift. He had the power of telepathy and thought it a great gift to Fintan's family, as it would give them an edge over their fellow humans to know what other people were thinking and planning.
Fintan and Adele drank Cataliades' blood although Adele was tricked into it, as Cataliades mixed it with her wine , and from then on Fintan and Adele passed on to most of their descendants the power of telepathy.
However, Cataliades revealed, only the descendants who, like Sookie's grandmother Adele, had the essential spark would inherit the telepathy. When asked what the essential spark was, Cataliades responded, "It isn't easy to pin down in terms of your DNA. It's an openness to the other world. Some humans literally can't believe there are creatures in another world besides ours, creatures who have feelings and rights and beliefs and deserve to live their own lives.

Humans who are born with the essential spark are born to experience or perform something wonderful, something amazing. When each Stackhouse child was born Cataliades came and inspected them to see if they had the gift. In The Southern Vampire Mysteries canon , a witch practices magic rituals, drawing from a power most people never tap into that can be focused for various effects through the use of rituals and spells.
Practitioners can be both Wiccan and a witch, or more one or the other. Witches and Wiccans first appear in the fourth book, Dead to the World. In later books, Sookie learns more about witchcraft and befriends Amelia Broadway , a true witch, in New Orleans. Sookie is portrayed by Academy Award —winning actress Anna Paquin.

At school they discover more mysterious and secrets within St. Vladimir's walls. Rose and Lissa encounter something else at the academy, too: forbidden romance. Rose thinks she has a sarcastic wit but it comes off more nasty than funny. Her only redeeming quality is that she truly cares for her best friend, Lissa, and wants to protect her at any cost.
Yet, her "I'm better than you" attitude's hard to get past. Granted Rose has some kick-butt fighting skills, but there are plenty of terrific heroines in other YA books. Vampire Academy seems more about high school life with vampires and a mystery thrown in the mix -- not much to sink your teeth into.
Do you plan to see the movie version of Vampire Academy? Why do you think the filmmakers chose to give it a more comedic tone than the novel?
