The following is an alphabetic list of Forever Knight factions, divided according the basis for their formation.

Contents

General Factions

Die Hards

The Die Hards are fans who can't—or won't—pick a specific character as their favourite, since they are fans of the show overall. (The irony of there being a faction for people who refuse to join a faction is thoroughly appreciated.) Die-Hards were one of the first six factions to form, and regularly participate in Forever Knight Wars. The symbol for the Die-Hards is the logo of the Forever Knight television series, also used on the faction pins.

For more information, please see the article on the Die-Hards.

Mercenaries

The Mercenary Guild (Mercs, for short) have taken part in most of the Forever Knight Wars. They are not affiliated with any one faction, but will take on any project for anyone provided they are paid. Such payment is "virtual", and often takes the form of chocolate.

The faction headquarters of the Mercenary Guild is Merc Central, which is also the name of their faction site.

Nitpickers

The Nitpickers are fans who like to nitpick the episodes carefully looking for mistakes. They had a Yahoo!Group FKNitpickers (which no longer seems to exist), and their own website, The Forever Knight Nitpickers' Gallery.

Wallflowers

Wallflowers are followers of Forever Knight who watch rather than actively participate in fandom. In other fandoms, these are usually known as lurkers; but, although the term is in general use in Forever Knight fandom, there is also a Lurkers faction, so the faction for "small-l" lurkers is called the Wallflowers.

Factions Based on Canonical Characters

Academy

The Academy (sometimes called the Philosophers) are fans of Aristotle, a vampire who keeps an incredible data system through which he is able to construct false identities for vampires who wish to move on.

For more information, please see the article on The Academy.

Andreivichs

Andreivichs are fans of André, a guest character who appeared in the flashback scenes of the third season episode, "Fallen Idol". André was Nick Knight's nephew, orphaned son of his sister Fleur (who had appeared in the second season episode, "Be My Valentine"). Nick became André's guardian, but was repudiated after the boy discovered his uncle's true vampire nature. This is a very minor faction.

Cohen-heads

Cohen-heads (a pun on "coneheads") are fans of the police captain in Season Two, Amanda Cohen. The faction was sufficiently well established to have its own faction symbol and faction pins.

Cousins

The first faction to be formed was the Cousins, fans of Lucien LaCroix. As the story goes, a fan on Forkni-L mentioned that she was afraid of frogs; two other fans, as a joke, sent her chocolate frogs in the mail. When she got them, she said the other two had to be cousins, they were so alike in their "meanness". Since both of them were LaCroix fans, they decided if they were cousins, he must be their uncle; so LaCroix became known as Uncle, as well..[1] The name LaCroixettes has also been proposed for female fans of LaCroix, but never became popular.

As the first faction, the Cousins have their own faction symbol and faction pins.

Cousins have participated in all the Forever Knight Wars, and have evolved a battle strategy employing a triumvirate of leaders, referred to collectively as Cerberus. The Cousins's List Page (archived) was a faction website associated with one of the Cousins' mailing lists (cousins@majordomo.net), which was originally set up for War 9. Three Heads Before Hades (archived) was the faction site set up to record their participation in Wars 11 and 12.

Cousins are fans of LaCroix the manipulative (magnificent) bastard. As a result there are splinter "fraction factions" of fans who prefer to focus other sides of his character.

Figurines

Figurines are fans who like to see LaCroix as a father figure to Nick. A minor faction.

General's Secret Service

The General's Secret Service was formed by the Cousins faction in June of 1997 during the preparations for War 8. It started out in the planning stages as the "Cousins Special Forces" and evolved into a Secret Agent 007 style strike force answerable directly to LaCroix, their Commander, whom they refer to as "The General". The fans who are members of the General's Secret Service come up with aliases for themselves.

The G.S.S. had its own faction symbol and a faction site (now archived). However, when the faction lists are formed for a War, the G.S.S. team sign on to the Cousin List.

Light Cousins

Fans of LaCroix who prefer a slightly kinder, gentler, more "human" interpretation of hic character are known as Light Cousins.

For more information, please see the article on the Light Cousins.

Second Cousins

Second Cousins are followers of Lucien LaCroix's "blood kin" who declare a secondary allegiance to LaCroix.

Disciples of Divia or Diviants

The Disciples of Divia and Diviants are fans of the vampire Divia, who appeared in two episodes, "A More Permanent Hell" and "Ashes to Ashes". In Roman times, Divia was LaCroix's daughter. She was turned into a vampire while her father was away at war; and, during the eruption of Mount Vesuvius, saved his life by bringing him across also. Some years later in Egypt, when she tried to persuade him into becoming her lover, he entombed her; two millennia later, she escaped and came looking for revenge, only to be killed.

The Disciples of Divia and Diviants had separate mailing lists and websites.

For more information, see the articles Disciples of Divia and Diviants.

Fleur-Boosters

The Fleur-Boosters, sometimes called the Fleurettes, are fans of Nick's mortal sister Fleur de Brabant. The character's sole appearance was in the flashback scenes of the second season episode, "Be My Valentine".

FoDs

The FoDs, or Friends of Don, are fans of Nick's partner on the Metropolitan Police Force in the first two seasons of Forever Knight. Don Schanke was noted for his appetite (especially for souvlaki and doughnuts); and the faction is usually known by the acronym "FoDs", which is pronounced "foods".

For more information, please see the FoDs article.

FoSiLs

The FoSiLs are fans of Natalie Lambert's cat, Sydney. They have a faction symbol; and, at one time, had a faction site that has long since disappeared.

For more information, please see the article on Sydney.

Graces

Graces are followers of Grace Balthazar, Natalie Lambert’s friend and lab assistant. This was a recurring character who appeared in a handful of episodes at the end of Season One and beginning of Season Two.

INCArnates

The INCArnates are fans of Vachon's vampire nemesis, known only as the Inca. The character was a guest in the Season Three premiere.

Knighties

The Knighties, fans of the protagonist of the series, Nick Knight, were the second faction, hard on the heels of the Cousins. (Initially, the name Nicholaaahs was also proposed for the faction.)[2][citation needed] There is a Knighties Yahoo!Group that has been inactive since 2007. There is also a faction site, Forever Knighties! In general, Knighties are fans of the Nick who's trying to overcome his vampirism—the good-guy cop. However, the obvious popularity of the protagonist (not to mention conflicting interpretations of his character) has led to several spin-off factions.

B.R.I.C.K.

The B.R.I.C.K. are followers of Nick Knight who see his "brickish" nature, i.e. his common failure to see the obvious. Male members of this faction are known as Briques and female fans as Briquettes. (This is a minor faction.)

Dark Knighties

Fans whose tastes lean more toward the vampiric, darker, more dangerous Nick are known as Dark Knighties. This is one of the major "fraction factions", and has played as a separate faction in some of the Forever Knight Wars.

For more information, please see the Dark Knighties article.

Light Knighties

Fans who prefer Nick's human side are known as Light Knighties.

Knights de Soir or Twilight Knighties

The Twilight Knighties or Knights de Soir are fans of Nick Knight who enjoy the balance between light and dark in his character. The "Knights de Soir aka Twilight Knighties" are a Yahoo!Group, with sporadic activity. There is also a faction site, Knights de Soir, that includes a fan fiction archive.

Nick's Harem

Nick's Harem are followers of Nick Knight who refer to themselves as "wives". They consider Natalie Lambert to be an honorary "wife". These fans are basically a club who write stories about their "encounters" with Nick. They have made their own faction symbol, and have a faction site, Official Nick's Harem Web Site.

For more information, please see the Nick's Harem article.

Nick's Knightstick Brigade

Nick's Knightstick Brigade are a joke faction for Forever Knight fans who are obsessed with Nick Knight's sexual prowess.

Mikies

Mikies are fans of the bartender Miklos, who works at The Raven, the nightclub that appears in the show. Miklos was a recurring supporting character in a few episodes early in Season Two. The Mikies were always a minor faction, but sufficiently well established to have their own faction symbol and faction pins.

Myras

Myras are fans of Myra Schanke, the long-suffering wife of Nick's partner, Don Schanke. Although their relationship was a running gag throughout the first two seasons of Forever Knight, Myra only appeared on screen—very briefly and in the distance—in the Season Three premiere, when Nick went to the Schankes' house to tell her that Don had died in a plane crash. The Myras were always a minor faction, but sufficiently well established to have their own faction symbol and faction pins.

NatPack

The NatPack (also spelled Natpack) are fans of Natalie Lambert, the pathologist who is trying to find a way to turn Nick human again. This was one of the first six factions to form, coming together during the first Forever Knight War, though it was not, at that time, known by that name, but instead called the Au-NATurelles.[2][citation needed] The faction is reputed to have an almost Borg-like will to assimilate new fans. Members of the faction are known as "NatPackers". As one of the original factions, the NatPack has its own faction symbol and faction pin.

There is a Yahoo!Group for NatPackers, Natalie's Friends; but it has been inactive since 2005. The name of the faction website, Natalie's Bed and Breakfast (archived), is a reference to the lightly sarcastic recording on her answering machine: the only people staying at "Natalie's Bed and Breakfast" are dead, since she is a pathologist.

The popularity of Natalie Lambert (not to mention conflicting interpretations of her character) led to several spin-off factions:

Brick-throwers

Brick-throwers are fans who support Natalie's attempts to bring Nick Knight to his senses. A minor faction.

Dark NatPack

The Dark NatPack are fans of Natalie's darker side. Some of them want to see Nick bring her across; others simply enjoy her strength of character. The Dark NatPackers are one of the major "fraction factions", and have often participated in Forever Knight Wars. However, if the two wings of the NatPack faction cannot separately summon a quorum of participants, they typically merge and wage war together. At one time, there was a faction site, The DNP Files; but it no longer exists.[3]

The name Dark Natties appears in early faction lists, and appears to refer to the same faction.

MadNatters

The MadNatters are fans of Natalie who were not allowed to join the main NatPack group because they also belonged to other factions. For a time, therefore, they formed their own faction.

NatVampCamp

The NatVampCamp (or Nat Vamp Camp) are Forever Knight fans who want to see Natalie Lambert brought across.

Nunkies Anonymous

Nunkies Anonymous is a faction for addicts of Uncle (i.e. LaCroix). Although it can be considered a fraction of the Cousins, Nunkies Anonymous is largely autonomous, and takes competitive part in Forever Knight Wars. Many of the members are also Cousins, but some are actually drawn from other factions, particularly the Vaqueros.

For more information, please see the Nunkies Anonymous article.

Nunkies Scouts

Nunkies Scouts are members of the Nunkies Anonymous faction who earn themselves badges by completing virtual tasks. One officially becomes a Nunkies Scout once the first badge is earned. In most instances, this is done "virtually" by creating posts that satisfy the requirements. For this reason, the first prerequisite to becoming a Nunkie Scout is subscribing to the Nunkies Anonymous list, since that is where scouts must post the requirements for each new Nunkies Scout badge. The Nunkies' Scouts have an insignia, Code, Promise, and Laws (in imitation of the Scouts movement), and also had a faction website (archived).

Perkulators

The Perkulators (or Perks) were formed during Season Three for fans of Tracy Vetter, Nick's third-season partner. At first, several alternative names were proposed for this faction, including Vetterans (from Tracy's surname); Fluffies (after her childhood pet cat), and Buttons, Button-lovers, and Boutonnieres (from Tracy's childhood nickname, "Button"). However, when Tracy was first added to the show, many fans immediately had the impression that she was a bouncy, perky character. Combined with her perceived liking for coffee, this led to the general adoption of Perkulators as the faction name. However, not all fans agreed that Tracy lacked depth, leading quickly to the establishment of a "fraction faction", the Dark Perkulators.

The Perkulators are a well established faction that regularly participates in Wars. They have a faction symbol and faction pin. There is no single central faction site, but rather several sites devoted to the character, all of which are described as Perks sites.

Dark Perkulators

The Dark Perkulators (or Dark Perks) are devoted to the darker side of Tracy Vetter, though this is often interpreted simply to mean that they see her as a strong character. The faction was formed 2 February 1998 as a reaction to the perceived light and fluffy interpretation that dominated the main Perks faction. The Dark Perks are a major "fraction faction", and have participated in Wars as a separate faction. However, if the two groups are unable to field a quorum separately, they will unite to wage War. The Dark Perks have faction headquarters at the Dark Perkulators Mansion.

There is a Dark Perks Yahoo!Group, DP-L, which saw heavy activity in 1999-2000, diminishing thereafter. There are also several Dark Perks faction sites:

Perryhounds

The Perryhounds (or Perry-A) are fans of Perry, the vampire dog from the Season Three episode, "Blind Faith".

RatPack

The RatPack (also spelled Ratpack or Rat-Pack) are fans of the vampire Screed, who was a recurring character in several episodes of Season Three. Members of the faction are known as RatPackers. The faction is ardent, and has regularly taken part in Forever Knight Wars since its creation. It has its own faction symbol, used on the faction pins. The RatPack also have a large website, Screed Was Here!.

Ravenettes

The Ravenettes are fans of Janette DuCharme. The etymology is ambiguous: some fans aver that it is a portmanteau of her name and that of her nightclub, the Raven, and hence gender-neutral; others feel that its form is feminine, so male faction members should be called Ravens.

For more information, please see the Ravenettes article.

Reese's Pieces

The Reese's Pieces are fans of the police captain in Season Three, Capt. Joe Reese. Despite the catchy name, this has always been a minor faction. They are, however, sufficiently well established to have their own faction symbol and faction pins.

Stonetree-ites

The Stonetree-ites (also known simply as the Stonetrees) are fans of the police captain in Season One, Capt. Joe Stonetree. The first name proposed for the faction was the Scorpions (after a folk tale recounted by Stonetree in an early episode); but the name never caught on. Stonetree was a prominent supporting character; but the first factions focused on others who had greater fan appeal. By the time the number of factions started to expand beyond the original six, the part of police captain was being recast. It is fair to say, therefore, that the faction was invented after the fact. It never had a faction symbol.

Urchins

Urchins are fans of the vampire Urs, a recurring character who appeared in four episodes in Season Three. There were other names initially proposed for this faction, including Goldilocks and Bears (the latter being proposed only for male fans); but Urchins was widely adopted. This is, however, a fairly minor faction. It was not created early enough to have a faction symbol designed for it; and has never had a Yahoo!Group, though there was a small (now defunct) faction website. In Forever Knight Wars, Urchins normally have to join other factions in order to participate.

Vaqueros

The Vaqueros were formed during Season Three, for fans of Javier Vachon, a regular supporting character in that season, who was the leader of a new group of vampires. Many female fans prefer to use Vaqueras (the feminine form), since the word is Spanish, a language that has gender. Although the alternative name Compadres was also proposed, Vaqueros (or Vaqueras) quickly became established; and a faction symbol was devised for the group in the shape of a conquistador's helmet. The Vaqueros also had faction pins.

The Vaqueros have taken part regularly in Forever Knight Wars held since the faction was founded. The faction site is Vachon's Church.

Women Scorned

The Women Scorned are fans of Alexandra, a vampire who appeared as a guest in the Season One episode, "Fatal Mistake".

Woof Pack

The Woof Pack are fans of the two vampire dogs, Perry and Raleigh, who appeared in the episode "Blind Faith".

Couple Factions (Based on Relationships)

Heartbreakers

Immortal Seducers

Nanettes

The Nanettes are fans who see potential for a relationship, usually romantic, between the human doctor, Natalie Lambert, and the vampire, Janette DuCharme. The name of the faction is a portmanteau of the names of the two women. There used to be a faction website, Le Chateau des Nanettes (archived, but very little remains).

Nick and NatPack

The Nick and NatPack are fans of the relationship between Nick Knight and Natalie Lambert. The name of the faction is often abbreviated to Nick & NatPack or NNPack. Although nominally the faction could focus on any aspect of their involvement, the usual interest is romantic, most often either with Nick becoming mortal or the two discovering a safe way to be together. As a result, the faction splintered off a second group of fans who preferred a different approach.

The Nick and NatPack is one of the earliest relationship-based factions. It has its own faction symbol and faction pins, and has often taken part in Forever Knight Wars. The faction has a Yahoo!Group, NNPack, which is both for discussion and fan fiction. There is an early faction resource site, The N&NPack Photo and Sound Shop, which contains an archive of screen and sound captures. There is also a larger faction website, Mortal Love: Home of the Nick&Natpack, which includes archives of both fan fiction and screen and sound captures.

Dark Nick and NatPack

There is a Yahoo!Group, DarkNN, which saw heavy activity in 1999-2000; this has since diminished, but there are still sporadic posts. There are also multiple faction sites: the Dark Nick and Nat Homepage and Descent Into Darkness.

Nothers

Nothers are fans of Natalie Lambert who want her to find a happy romantic relationship with an "Other", i.e., a character other than Nick Knight, usually a non-Forever Knight character.

For more information, please see the Nothers article.

The Rat Patrol are fans who see the potential for a relationship between Nick's partner, Tracy Vetter, and the carouche Screed.

The Unmentionables are fans who see potential in the relationship between Dr. Natalie Lambert and Screed. This is a minor faction.

Unnamed Faction

The Unnamed Faction are fans of the relationship between Nick Knight and Lucien LaCroix, nominally in any aspect, romantic or otherwise. However, in practice, most members of the Unnamed Faction focus on the former—hence the name of the faction, which refers to the "love that dare not speak its name". The faction name is often abbreviated to UF, whence the adjective "UFfish". In reaction to the focus on slash, fans who preferred a non-romantic focus on Nick and LaCroix split off to form the Cousins of the Knight.

The Unnamed Faction is one of the earliest relationship-based factions, and therefore has its own faction symbol and faction pins. It has regularly taken part in Forever Knight Wars, and maintains a list of faction members, The UnNamed Faction Warriors. Over the years, there have been several other UF-related faction sites:

UnSuiteds

The UnSuited faction (also spelled Unsuited) are fans who—usually tongue in cheek—see a potential relationship between Lucien LaCroix and Don Schanke. The name LaCroissants had earlier been proposed for this faction.

For more information, please see the UnSuiteds article.

Vachonettas

Vachonettas are fans who see a potential relationship between Javier Vachon and Janette (two characters who never met in canon). This is a minor faction.

Valentines

Valentines are fans who see potential in the relationship between the vampire Lucien LaCroix and the human doctor, Natalie Lambert. The characters met in more than one episode, with their encounter in "Be My Valentine" giving the faction its name. This is one of the earliest relationship-based factions, and has its own faction symbol and faction pins. There are multiple websites associated with the faction:

Other Show-Based Factions

CERKs

Ribena Users Group or R.U.G.s

The Ribena Users Group or R.U.G.s are Forever Knight fans who like Ribena™, a concentrated blackcurrant syrup. Usually this is diluted with water; but, in filming Forever Knight, it was used full strength to simulate the texture (though not the colour) of blood.

Archivists or Archivist's Assistants

The Archivists (or Archivist's Assistants) are fans of a fanfic OC, Dorian, the vampire Archivist from Susan M. Garrett's Dorian's Archives series.

Along with the Tequila Fiends, the Celtic GlowWorms share a faction headquarters at the The Fiendish Glow, a fictional pub. Both factions took part in Wars Nine and Ten.

Although the original meaning of the word "glow" in the name of the faction referred to Nick's words, the faction members later elaborated on it: "all of us, and all of the regular (fictional) staff at the Fiendish Glow have a peculiar sort of bioluminescence that is undetected by most humans [...]."[7]
