The villainous Black Deer

Marshal Wade Norman. Why did you have to be so damn clever? I preferred you as a dumbass.
~ Black Deer during her villainous transformation
Black Deer is a villainess from the 2015 film, Blood Moon.

She was played by Japanese/British actress Eleanor Matsuura.


Black Deer is a Navajo guide who aids Marshal Wade Norman during his hunt for bank robbing brothers Jeb and Hank Norton, though during the journey, Black Deer warns Wade about a bloodthirsty skinwalker (werewolf) who comes out during a blood moon. Later in the film, Black Deer is revealed to be a witch, but during a confrontation with Wade, she reveals that she is also a half human, half skinwalker. Black Deer stated that she has the ability to transform into a werewolf hybrid when her bestial side takes over during a blood moon, and that her kind is hunted by both humans and werewolves. Wade concluded that Black Deer needed the white ash, which is deadly to skinwalkers, to protect herself, but at that moment, Black Deer cemented her heel turn and transformed into a werewolf, growing long claws through her fingers and showing bestial facial features. Black Deer later attacked Wade and escaped before he could shoot her with silver bullets. In the end of the film, Black Deer is shown in her human form with werewolves coming after her.
