- "I need you to understand something, Doris. I've got a job to uphold as sheriff in this here village. And checking out your neck is part of it. I don't want things getting out of hand. If it's nothing, then one peek will do. Take your scarf off and let Doc have a look.""

He seems to be of average height for a lawman possibly around 6 feet tall weighing over 200 pounds, with an athletic build. He carries a standard gun powered weapon and holster with a sheriff's badge pinned to his chest.
- "Under the following conditions. I'll take the word of a damn-good Hunter and hold off on any further discussion. But let me make one thing crystal clear—I don't want to have to stake you folks through the heart. I don't want to, but if that time should come, I won't give it a second thought."
- ―Luke Dalton to D and Lang children[src]
- (To D) "You're a Hunter, aren't you? I see it in your eyes, the way you carry yourself. I seem to recall hearing there was a man of unbelievable skill traveling across the Frontier, and that his name was D. They say his sword is faster than a laser beam or some such thing.Only, they say that man's a Hunter, and he specializes in vampires. And that he's a dhampir himself.".
