The HBO marketing onslaught for the upcoming fifth season of its supernatural series, True Blood, continues. The cable channel just released 12 new character posters, including one of new series regular Christopher Meloni.

Meloni plays the extremely powerful and ancient vampire Roman, the guardian of the governing body for all vampires, the Vampire Authority. He’s also the mastermind behind the mainstreaming movement, which aimed to integrate vampires into human society. Clearly, the events of the past two seasons have endangered his work, eh?

On season five, showrunner Alan Ball says that Roman holds Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) and Bill’s (Stephen Moyer) fates in his hands.

The 12 posters also include returning stars Skarsgard, Moyer, Anna Paquin and Joe Manganiello with the tagline, “Everything is at stake.” Click here to take a look at the gallery.

True Blood's fifth season begins on Sunday, June 10 at 9 p.m. on HBO.
