This page features all minor characters that made an appearance during the first season of AMC's NOS4A2. It spotlights characters that essentially received minor roles but were relevant enough in the story to which a page was needed to document their involvement. The characters below are listed in order of episode appearance for your convenience. Please use the Minor Characters Infobox when adding a new addition to the page.

Karen MooreEdit

Karen Moore

Portrayed By: Megan McQuillan

First Appearance: The Shorter Way
Last Appearance: The Shorter Way


Karen Moore is Daniel Moore's mother. She is having sex with her boyfriend Brian when her son Daniel comes knocking on the door. He partially opens her bedroom door to ask if he can sleep with her as he feels lonesome. Brian offers to leave, but she wants him to stay and instead tells Daniel to go back to bed.

Later, Karen comes out the room to find Brian on the floor. That's when she is attacked by Ives. Although, outmatched in size and strength, Karen fights back, hitting Ives with a vase and making a run for the front door, though she doesn’t make it far as Ives manages to stick her with a syringe that leaves her weak. Karen makes it out the front door, screaming out to Daniel. She makes it off the front porch and into the grass before falling to her knees. Daniel watches as his mother crawls to him. He beats on the Wraith window, calling back out to her. As Karen crawls through the grass, Ives comes up from behind to snap her neck and inadvertently leaves his syringe behind in the grass.[1]

Portrayed By: Michael Maize

First Appearance: The Shorter Way
Last Appearance: The Shorter Way


Peter Ives was Charlie Manx's assistant. While Manx waits outside for Daniel, Peter enters the Moore house. He comes up from behind and injects Brian with a syringe, which kills him almost instantly. Daniel’s mother, Karen, comes out the room to find Brian on the floor. That's when she is attacked by Ives. Although, outmatched in size and strength, Karen fights back, hitting Ives with a vase and making a run for the front door, though she doesn’t make it far as Ives manages to stick her with a syringe that leaves her weak. Karen makes it out the front door, screaming out to Daniel. She makes it off the front porch and into the grass before falling to her knees. Daniel watches as his mother crawls to him. He beats on the Wraith window, calling back out to her. Manx, however, tells Daniel not to worry about his mother as she wasn’t interested in his games or him for that matter. Manx then drives off. As Karen crawls through the grass, Ives comes up from behind to snap her neck and inadvertently leaves his syringe behind in the grass.

On the way back to Christmasland, Manx scolds Peter Ives for his carelessness and the mess he left behind at the Moore house. He left bodies behind, as well as his syringe. Manx was mostly upset that Daniel had to hear his mother scream. A terrible trauma. Peter didn’t anticipate that Daniel’s mother would have someone over, but Manx reminded him of the type women their dealing with. His lack of foresight puts them in jeopardy and this isn’t the first time. Manx has grown tired of his company. Peter Ives has made Manx’s naughty list, and with that, the Wraith door opens on its own and Manx kicks him out the moving car. He dies on impact, on the side of the road.[1]
