Jeb Hawkes is a fictional cult leader and netherworld entity featured in the 1960s daytime Gothic soap opera Dark Shadows, which aired on ABC from 1966 to 1971. He was played by actor Christopher Pennock and introduced in 935 in 1970. The character made thirty-five appearances in total before being killed off in episode 980. Jeb Hawkes was the primary antagonist of "The Leviathan Cult" storyline.
Jeb Hawkes was the identity assumed by the adult humanoid version of the Leviathan cult leader. His true form was that of an indescribable monstrous thing, but very few saw Jeb in this form and lived to tell about it. According to the Leviathan prophecy, Jeb was fated to take Carolyn Stoddard as his bride before assuming his true destiny. Despite his vast power, there was only one thing that Jeb Hawkes was afraid of - werewolves. In the end however, it was one of his own followers, Sky Rumson, who brought his tyranny to an end when he pushed him off the edge of Widows' Hill in 1970.
