  • Dave Teagues
    John Dunsworth
    Character

    Along with his brother Vince, Dave Teagues is part of the firmament of Haven, having been around and seen it all for decades as co-owner and co-editor of The Haven Herald.  Like Vince, Dave is also keenly aware of what is truly possible in this town, and together they have long helped to cover-up the Troubles and to keep up Haven's appearance as just another idyllic seaside town. And yet, these two have as much interest in the supernatural as they do the supremely normal.  

    The glad-hander of the two, Dave is a relentless town booster and a guy who will strike up a conversation with anyone. If Vince has seemed to pick up some sort of quiet wisdom from their decades running The Haven Herald, Dave has instead come to live more in the moment. He finds a joy in his endless petty squabbles with his brother that Vince does not. And while Dave's relationship with his brother looks like playful bickering on the surface, and it usually is, there's more to it underneath. If only Dave or Vince would tell anyone the truth of what they know about Haven…

  • Vince Teagues
    Richard Donat
    Character

    Vince Teagues and his brother Dave have been the owners and editors of The Haven Herald— Haven's newspaper of record— for decades.  They are the institutional memory of this town, having reported on or heard rumor of just about everything that's happened here for a long, long time.  But the Teagues are equally dedicated to celebrating the seemingly mundane in Haven as they are to covering up the frightening truths in town.  

    Vince is compassionate, more thoughtful and more easily moved than his brother.  He is given to introspection and sometimes harder to read.  Sure, he's drily funny, but there's something wise about him, even if his brother easily drags him into endless tit-for-tat quarrels.  Vince works hand-in-hand with Dave in many ways… yet there is some obstacle between them.  And like his brother, Vince is privately complex – more than the pleasant older fellow that he lets most people see on the outside.
