Sarah Connor

Aliases: Sarah Reese, Sarah Baum. Mother of John, she was told in the first film that he grows up to be the leader of the resistance against SkyNet. Currently, lives with him, Cameron, and Derek in Los Angeles, trying to stop the creation of SkyNet. Might have or will have cancer - it was what she died of in an alternate timeline.

John Connor

Aliases: John Reese, John Baum. Sarah's son, the future leader of the resistance. Not quite a leader yet. Currently, neither his mother nor Cameron entirely trust him because he reactivated Cameron after she tried to kill him.


 "Thank you for explaining".

Aliases: Cameron Phillips, Cameron Baum, Allison Young. The reprogrammed Terminator (rumored to be TOK715) sent back by future John. The most advanced infiltrating unit seen so far - unlike other Terminators, she can eat food and can cry. Acts as John Connor's advisor in the future, much to the chagrin of the other resistance fighters.

Charley Dixon

 "He was a scary robot but you, you're a really scary robot."

Sarah's former fiance, he's since married someone else until she dies by Cromartie's hands. Eventually dies protecting John Connor.

James Ellison

 "These are more than machine but I will never make the mistake of thinking them human".

An agent of the FBI, he started out trying to stop the Connors...until he started believing them.

Derek Reese

 "We can go back. We can fix all the mistakes".

John's uncle from the future, he came back to get a chess playing computer named the Turk and kill its creator, Andy Goode. Eventually is shot in the head by a Skynet Terminator. And now alive again in an alternate future timeline.



 "Thank you for your time."

The Terminator sent after John at the same time Cameron was. His chip is eventually destroyed, but his body ends up being used as the "face" of the Turk/John Henry supercomputer.



The Connor's new and very pregnant neighbor.


 "I'm a crazy, badass ninja!"

John's new friend at school. Not very well liked by the audience. Actually working with Jessie to manipulate John Connor.


John's other friend at school. Asked Cameron to the prom. Not seen since the first season.

  • Brother Chuck: Possibly, along with the other high school storylines of season one.


Catherine Weaver

 "The project's name is Babylon. It's from The Bible."

CEO of Ziera Corp. She had the Turk stolen and set a group of people to work with it on "Project Babylon." Also, is a liquid metal T-1001 Terminator.

 "Sorry I piss you off, Mr. Tuck. The feeling's mutual."

"I bet that's never happened before either."

Savannah Weaver

 "I want my old mommy back."

Daughter of Catherine Weaver. She becomes best friends with John Henry.

John Henry

 "Why is a math book so sad?"

The AI built and developed from Andy Goode's Turk supercomputer, using Cromartie's body as a means to communicate with others and manipulate its environment. Extremely intelligent, but almost childlike.

  • AI Is a Crapshoot: Averted. Weaver specifically enlisted Ellision to teach John Henry morality and ethics so he develops properly.
  • Basement Dweller: It's not like he has any choice on the matter since his body is permanently hooked up to the computer that's used to run his AI.
  • Cain and Abel: John Henry asks which "brother" he is. Weaver's response is he might be neither, and may in fact be God.

Dr. Boyd Sherman

 "Because it has so many problems".

A child therapist whose name was found on the blood-stained basement. Weaver hires him as a consultant to help her understand the strange behavior of her AI.

  • Dropped a Bridge on Him: Died of heat stroke after the AI rerouted the power from the air-conditioning to continue powering itself.
  • Token Minority: The only other Negro character in the show aside from Ellison.


 "Sunset's at 5:47. I'm not gonna miss that sucker."

Resistance fighter who traveled back in time to escape the hell of the future. Has an intimate relationship with Derek Reese. Actually traveled back in time on her own with Riley to try and separate John and Cameron, and is also implied to be an alternate counterpart to Jesse from Derek's timeline.

  • A Day in the Limelight: "The Last Voyage of the Jimmy Carter".
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Revealed herself as this the moment she slapped Riley, and right after Riley admitted to screwing up, was not in good shape and was asking to stay with Jesse for a while.
  • Manipulative Bitch
  • Ms. Fanservice
  • Xanatos Gambit: Get Riley to threaten Cameron enough to kill her so John would be alienated from Cameron in the first place. If that doesn't work, kill Riley yourself, then pin the blame on Cameron. Unfortunately for her John figured it out before he terminated Cameron.
  • Wham! Line: gets one by Derek before we see the last of her. We don't know if he shot her or not.

  " You're not my Jesse."

Allison Young

 "I live in a tunnel. I eat garbage for dinner"

Resistance fighter in the future. Captured by Skynet, and who Cameron's physical features are based on. Later killed by Cameron for lying to her. Implied to know John Connor personally. And now, most likely alive again in the alternate future timeline.


 "I got this necklace at this awesome thrift store in Echo Park."

A runaway Cameron befriended in "Allison in Palmdale".
