The Guardians

Justice Donner (Age: 29)
Justice Donner has long been traveling across the United States taking the fight to the bad guys. She’s always had one person or another with her, and her most recent tag-a-long is Isaac Reed. Isaac has been working with Justice for a little over 4 years, and the two have found that they work really well together.
Justice was raised in the great state of Texas where she did most of her early life training with a small group of Donner Party members called the “Young Guns” (Yes, after the movie.) She was taught how to handle a pistol, and stare down her enemies, a modern day gunslinger. While she has long since outgrown her love of cowboys and indians some of her habits have stuck around throughout her life.
Above all else Justice believes she’s a modern day supernatural lawman. Put on this earth for her short time to curtail the evil-doin’s of monsters out to hurt the common folk. She prides herself on her dedication, loyalty, and stalwart belief in the Donner Party’s cause. While her time on this earth has dwindled away she hopes she can make a difference in Isaac Reed’s life before it’s too late for him too.

Isaac Reed (Age: 23)
Issac Reed has pissed away most of his life trying to run from a destiny he wants no part of. Every time he finds a way out his Demons find a way to bring him back in. His most recent attempts to flee from his partner, Justice, were foiled by an insane poltergeist who took it upon itself to seal Justice in a watery grave. Isaac could’ve made a clean getaway and let Justice die, but something inside of him just wouldn’t drop it.
Isaac was raised just north of Pittsburg, and he spent most of his younger years breaking the law and being a bad kid. His ex-mentor was a man by the name of Kyle Pike, and he taught Isaac that looking out for others was more important than yourself. That the helping was more than enough of a reward for any one man. When Kyle died to a vampire attack Isaac lost all sense of purpose and fled into the night, running every day from a past that wouldn’t let him go.
Justice has since taken Isaac under her wing, in hopes, that she can give him some sense of purpose before her day comes, but Isaac has been fighting back every step of the way. Isaac hopes he can find answers to his cursed family, and hopes one day he’ll finally be able to stop running from whatever is chasing him down.
