The Donner Party
The Snyders were a new addition to the Demon’s core of followers in 1846. They were intergrated because they had the physical skills that the Demon required, but the Hastings couldn’t produce. John Snyder was with the Donner Party to make sure they were slowed down enough to encounter the Demon, and as luck would have it his death forced Reed away. This action spelled demise for the Donner Party, but gave birth to the hunters they have become.
In the modern day the Snyder family serves faithfully with the Hastings as the eyes and ears of the Demon of Donner Lake, but more importantly they are the muscle in case the Donner Party gets out of line. They are known to be quick tempered and cruel. They will attack the Donner Party for even the smallest of slights and have become aggressive advesaries on numerous occasions. Typically, they are paired with a member of the Hastings family for guidance, and these small duos usually work together as a left and right hand of the Demon of Donner Lake.
The Snyders are good fighters able to match the physical skill set of the Donner Party point for point. They enjoy destroying anything that the Donner Party might find useful, and actively work to prevent them from performing any sort of good deeds. Snyders are usually at the fore front of interactions with the Donner Party, mocking, insulting, and attacking them at every turn. They couldn’t care less about what the Donner Party wants to accomplish because they’re idiots who were stupid enough to make a pact with the Devil. Their fate suits them perfectly
