Who is Saracen? She-Hulk character explained

Saracen is one of the supervillains that Jen meets while he’s trying to better himself at the retreat with Emil Blonsky. The character is played by Terrence Clowe.

Jen gets a call from Emil Blonsky’s parole officer who asks for her assistance when he has to go and check an abnormality regarding Blonksy’s inhibitor device. She’s in a bit of an anxious mood since she hasn’t heard from Josh since they slept together for the first time.

Jen spent the first few days of the week going out with him and texting back and forth but ever since he spent Thursday night at her place, there’s been no sign of him and Jen begins to worry. She ends up spending her Sunday dealing with the Blonsky problem.

Working on his delusion

Jen roams around the retreat grounds on her own after completely ignoring Blonsky’s attempts to connect with her. She finally gets a single bar on her phone after entering a barn where the residents have their sharing circle.

This is where she first meets Saracen, who believes that he is a vampire according to Blonsky. Saracen is the first person to point out that Man-Bull and El Aguila’s relationship is based on co-dependency and appears quite unhealthy in this situation.

When Wrecker suggest that Jen was ghosted by Josh, Saracen gives the alternate suggestion that maybe Josh just wanted her blood to which Man-Bull tells him to stop talking about wanting blood because not everyone is his father.

It points to Saracen possibly having some daddy issues but that line also acts as an inside joke for the audience in particular because that is exactly what Josh wanted, a sample of her blood.
