Alpha Showdown: Eric Northman VS Raphael

Posted on the 22 May 2011 by Eric And Sookie Lovers @EricSookieLover

Hey Eric & Sookie Lovers! :)

We have a poll to tell you about…

There’s a poll going on now – over at the Vampire Book Club! It’s called, The Alpha Showdown! :D

Alpha Showdown: Eric Northman VS Raphael

Eric Northman is in Round 7!

Find out more about who he is up against, down below!

Both alphas in this round hold positions of power. They’re political beasts (one more so than the other, as pointed out below). And they both have a thing for feisty mortals.

Today, they put the Viking vampire Eric Northman (played most excellently on HBO’s True Blood by Swedish deliciousness Alexander Skarsgard) in the ring with powerful archangel Raphael. Two bloggers have done the hard work for you and are ready to convince you that each alpha would win the fight. It’s up to you to decide who is right. 

Each poll is open for only 48 hours. Then, the champion will advance to the next round until only one alpha remains.

So, vote while you can!

Here’s what they said about Eric and Raphael:

Eric Northman

You know him from: Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris
First appeared in: Dead Until Dark (get a copy), though things get Eric-focused in Dead to the World (get a copy)
Supernatural status: Vampire (Sheriff and Viking, to boot)

Championing for Eric: DeeDee from

Only one Alpha in this tournament can bowl with decapitated vampire heads one minute and make you need a jar for extra orgasms the next. That Alpha is Eric Northman.

Vampire. Viking. Sheriff. Bar Owner. Lover. God.

He’s a badass with a sense of humor, likes his women strong and feisty, kisses “like a house afire,” and rocks pink spandex like no other man could. There’s gracious plenty to love – and fear – about Sheriff Northman, as Louisiana Area 5 knows and his Alpha competitors will soon find out.


You know him from: Guild Hunter series by Nalini Singh
First appeared in:Angels’ Blood (get a copy)
Supernatural status: Archangel

Championing for Raphael: Marcela from The Bookaholic Cat

Raphael is the epitome of an Alpha hero. He is powerful, dark, passionate, beautiful and sexy as hell. He is the son of two archangels and one of the most powerful archangels in the world. From his Archangel Tower in New York he rules all North America, including angels and vampires alike, while our today’s “rival” Eric Northman, is just the Sheriff of Area 5.

Raphael is so intense that I’m sure with just one look he will turn Eric to ashes.

Raphael is an ancient being, some may call him ruthless because of his hard hand, but his ruling is a fair one. He is otherworldly and unique and is not afraid to love a mortal even thought that might made him weak. He is committed to Elena and is willing to give his life for hers (not like others…*coughing* Eric).

And if all of this in not enough to win your vote, just think of his luscious body, his eyes blue as sapphires and those amazing glittered wings, imagine yourself enclosed by them while he glitter you from head to toe with angel dust or imagine those powerful arms holding you while his searing wings takes you to the sky to “dance” with him. *swoon*

Who’s more Alpha than a Vampire Viking? ;) When he was human, he was a warrior who fought in battles! He hates being “overseen”! He’s deeply committed to Sookie – to the point of marrying her, vampire style, while giving up his freedom and also creating more troubles for himself! He’s been there countless times for Sookie, against his better judgment, wants and needs. He rules Area 5 with an iron fist and those who owe him fealty, both fear and respect him!

Eric is more Alpha than Raphael could ever hope to be, so cast your vote down below!

Vote here for the Alpha Showdown!

Thanks Eric & Sookie Lovers! :)

PS. You can only vote ONCE! Please pass this on to everyone you know! Thanks! ;)
