Lodsam hanti, we are the chosen ones. Cahanna risone hanti, we are the fortunate ones. Sabbatha hanti, sabbatha hanti, sabbatha hanti. We are the True Knot, and we endure. What is tied may never be untied.
~ The True Knot's creed.

The True Knot are a nomadic tribe of quasi-immortal people with dark psychic powers and they served as the main antagonistic group in the 2013 Stephen King novel and its 2019 film Doctor Sleep, which is a sequel to the 1977 Stephen King novel and its 1980 film The Shining.

History

Novel

The True Knot are a group of wandering psychics who feed off the life force of spiritually-gifted children. They call this life-force "Steam", which when consumed keeps them young and extends their lifespan beyond its natural limits.

Despite this, the True Knot members can be killed. Due to their age, none of them have developed immunities to modern diseases. The members of the group feed off a boy who had measles, resulting in that virus lying dormant in their systems until a couple years later. The group had not been feeding well and the measles likely broke out due to their weakened states. When a True Knot member dies, their physical form fades away and all what was left are their clothes.

The True Knot number 41 when the novel begins but once numbered more than 200.

The True Knot discover a girl named Abra who shows incredibly high psychic abilities.

Their leader Rose the Hat orders the True Knot to track her down so they can harvest her Steam. When Abra gets in contact with Daniel "Danny" Torrance (the son of Jack Torrance from The Shining), they make plans to stop the True Knot.

Movie

We are the True Knot, and we endure. Sabbatha hanti. We are the chosen ones. Lodsam hanti. We are the fortunate ones. Cahanna risone hanti. What is tied cannot be untied.
~ The True Knot's creed as chanted in the movie Doctor Sleep.
The True Knot’s story is mostly the same as the book, but their members have been reduced significantly and only consist of: Rose the Hat, Grandpa Flick, Crow Daddy, Barry the Chunk, Apron Annie (a minor character who ended up deserting the True Knot’s), Silent Sarey, Short Eddie, Diesel Doug and Snakebite Andi.

Sarey and Andi are not in a relationship, and all of the members (with the exception of Rose and Grandpa Flick, who dies like he did in the book) are all killed in a shootout.

Sarey does help get Andi to safety though before she is killed.

Crow Daddy dies separately from the group, but is instead killed when Abra makes him crash his car.

Members

Rose the Hat

Rose is the True Knot's leader. Born Rose O'Hara and formerly known as Irish Rose. She is around 700 years old, and described as being inredibly beautiful, with curly black hair, pale skin and a magician's top hat. After a psychic encounter with Abra, Rose's reasons for finding her become personal and she begins to lose her sanity. When she appears to someone who possesses the Shining, she is shown to possess only one deformed tooth, however it is not present in the film.

Apron Annie

Real name: Anne Lamont (?), She was picked up by Grampa Flicked during the Moroccan times in the 1500s. She turned her headwrap into an apron, earning her nickname. 

Baba the Red/Russian

?

Barry the Chink

Barry (real name: Barry Smith) is Caucasian, but because of his slanted eyes (an Asian stereotype) he was nicknamed "The Chink". He tried on child Bradley Trevor's baseball glove before the True Knot murdered him, which enabled Abra to later track him down by holding that object. He is around 500 years old and used his Shine for gambling. Husband of Petty the Chink. 

Bent Dick

Big Mo

Real name: Maureen Higgins. Wife of Short Eddie. 

Black-eyed Sue/Susie

>

Crow Daddy

Crow Daddy (real name: Henry Rothman) is Rose's lover. He was sent to capture Abra while the other members of the True Knot take on Danny and his allies. He successfully captures and drugs Abra, but Danny takes over her mind and wills Crow into killing himself. In the book he graduated Harvard Law in 1938 but in the film his given backstory is that Rose found him during the French-Indian Wars in the 1700s. 

Diesel Doug

Diesel Doug appears to be in a relationship with Silent Sarey in the film.

Dirty Phil

Real name: Phil Caputo, ?

Fat Fannie

?

Grandpa Jonas Flick

The oldest member of the True Knot. He dies early on in the story, which acts as a catalyst as it reminds Rose that the True Knot are not immortal and need to find someone with enough Steam to keep them alive, leading her to discover Abra. Flick was the first prominent member of the True Knot to die, after succumbing to the measles virus that slowly started to affect them all. In the film the measles virus is not present, but he has been unwell since the '70s. He was alive during the Roman Empire. 

Greedy G

Real name: Greta Moore.?

Hands-Off Hans

Died of accidental electrocution in the late 1940s, before the novel begins.

Harpman Sam

?

Heavy Mary

?

Jimmy Numbers

The True Knot's accountant and tech expert. He was born in the early 1800s. 

Katie Patches

Died of accidental drowning before the novel begins.

Long Paul

?

Pea and Pod Little

"the twins"?

Petty the Chink

Wife of Barry the Chink.

Short Eddie

Real name: Ed Higgins. Husband of Big Mo.

Silent Sarey

Silent Sarey (real name: Sarah Carter) has a speech impediment which she is self-conscious about, hence her nickname. Sarey has the ability to erase her prescence, allowing her to sneak up on her prey without alerting them as long as they cannot see her moving. Sarey was in a relationship with Snakebite Andi and sought revenge for her death. She was Rose’s hidden back up in her confrontation against Abra, but before she could help Rose, she was attacked and strangled to death by one of the Overlook Hotel’s spirits.

In the film, Silent Sarey does not speak at all (not counting when she is chanting with the true knot), she also has her hair up instead of hanging over her face. Possibly as a nod to their relationship in the book, Sarey helps Andi after she is shot in the shoulder. However, in the film she is seen in a relationship with Diesel Doug instead. She gets her into the RV before she is shot and killed. 

Snakebite Andi

Snakebite Andi (real name: Andrea Andi Streiner) was the first member of the True Knot to be introduced. She was sexually abused by her father, leading her to develop a hatred of all men and subsequently become a lesbian without realizing it. She is 32 years old when she is turned, and nicknamed "Snakebite" because of her snake tattoo. Andi has the ability to make people fall asleep through suggestion. She was in a relationship with fellow True Knot member Silent Sarey. She is killed when she is struck in the back of a head with the butt of a gun that causes a brain bleed.

In the film, Snakebite Andi is 15 years old and missing her snake tattoo and her hair is shorter. She gets her nickname from the marks she leaves in her victims. Andi also isn’t in a relationship with Sarey, and her backstory is removed completely and only hinted at. Andi is killed when she is shot in the neck and as her last act wills Abra’s father into killing himself.

Steamhead Steve

?

Sweet Terri Pickford

?

Toady Slim

?

Token Charlie

The only black member of the True.

Tommy the Truck

Formerly Tommy the Wagon. Heavy Mary's lover of over 90 years. He unexpectedly died one night of unknown causes, leading the True to wonder if they were becoming susceptible to human illnesses and conditions due to their recent, chronic lack of enough Steam. His death occurred just before the True killed Bradley Trevor.

Walnut

Real name: Peter Wallis. The True Knot's doctor.
