No one knows exactly what pushed the Decker family into hunting. Whispers of a possession, a young woman destined to be a prophet cut down in her prime. Each generation had it's own theory. In the end, it never really seemed to matter. As long as there was a Decker breathing, there would be a Decker hunting. A tradition that Eli Decker was not going to change.
The oldest child of Marcus and Olivia Decker, Elliott or Eli as he would come to be called, was a bright but stoic young man. Being the first born of the three Decker children, Eli spent the first six years of his life travelling with his parents. Home schooled by his mother in hotel rooms, it was a pretty lonely life. The birth of his sister Molly and younger brother Jamison who followed soon after changed that. Marcus and Olivia made the decision to settle down in one town to give their children as normal a life as they could give them.
School was a pretty big adjustment for Eli. Taller than most of the children his age and very quiet, he had a hard time making friends. Very close to and protective of his siblings and prone to wild stories about monsters, he was considered to be an odd young boy. It did get better as he got older. He made a few close friends and began to play football for his high school. During the summer he spent most of his time on the road with his father.
He loved the time he spent with his father but did not think that he would be a hunter full time. He graduated and was planning on going to college when his world got turn upside down. Unbeknownst to their children, Marcus and Olivia had been assisting a witch in taking down a vampire nest with magical help. They had taken out half of the nest and were going after the rest when they were both killed. Eli gave up his dream of college and took on the responsibility of raising his younger siblings.It wasn't easy but they managed well enough.
Recently, he met a young girl who is destined to be a prophet. After finding out that her parents had been killed by demons, he has been looking after her. Teaching her to protect herself and how to kill threats while simultaneously looking for someone they can trust to help her control her ability.
