Judge R. Manson is a local judge in the Carolinas. In 2007, after an April Fool's Day prank caused the death of Milan Hastings, Judge Manson relinquishes Blaine's control of the Cartier's fortune and shifts it to his sister, Desiree. A year later, in 2008, after the death of Desiree due to an accident to confess what she did, Judge Manson made Blaine the sole heir their family's estate and acquitted Torrance of the murder of Desiree.
A few years later, the Anti-Hunters' capture of Blaine for his true deeds has brought the judge's attention.
After the incident, Judge R. Manson became one of Agent Cummings' victims in his killing spree during a massacre over summer.
