Earl Devereaux is the Swallow Falls policeman. He is Cal Devereaux's father and Regina Devereaux's husband.


Earl is a tall and very muscular cop who is incredibly athletic and well built, this doesn't stop him from loving his wife as well although he has rather small legs when he is compared to the rest of his body. He has brown skin as well as brown eyes and black hair, along with a brown mustache and beard.


Earl plays as a minor antagonist at the beginning of the film but soon becomes one the main characters. He is a very athletic and overprotective man who takes his job very seriously and with pride to a point of seeming comical. He can also be over reactive and over-the-top sometimes with a gruff kind of voice and temper. He is also a very caring and loving family man who loves his wife and son very much and is willing to do anything for them and never ceases to remind his son just how much he cares about him. He also cares a lot about the safety of the people of Swallow Falls and even helped organize an evacuation during the "Food Hurricane" the FLDSMDFR has created.
