Elijah is an attractive man, with chocolate brown hair and matching eyes. Despite his formal position in the town, his hair is frequently mussed just the way he likes it, a few strands perfectly out of place. When not at work he is a very casual but still neat man, preferring clean, crisp jeans and button up shirts (always with the sleeves rolled up to the elbow.)
He stands at about 5’11”, and although he isn’t a wall of muscle it is evident that he puts some care into his appearance, if only for the sake of news appearances and other press-related events.
Before anything else is said, let it be know that Eli is kind. He is smart, analytical, and willing to make tough decisions, but he is a very kind man that values dignity and human life above all else.
That said, Eli is not naive. He knows that bad things happen to good people, good things happen to bad people, and sometimes things just don’t fall into place. Good requires effort, and nothing happens without elbow grease from someone, and often good has an opposite and equal reaction. Sometimes good have to do morally questionable or even downright immoral things in order for positive change to occur.
With a friendly smile and warm eyes, it is easy to see Elijah as just another nice person, but he came to be respected in both the human circles and, to an extent, the werewolf circles, for a reason.
Positive Personality Traits: kind, diplomatic
Negative Personality Traits: cynical, martyr
Nobody knows exactly where Elijah Holliday came from. He has no family in the area, no family friends, nothing that would have pulled him to Dawnbreak. He arrived in his mid twenties, decided to call it home, and that was that. The work to make the town better began, along with his dedication to being a civil servant.
He was looking for something to fix. Coming from a wealthy family, Elijah’s life was wonderful until he turned twenty. Married young after impregnating his high school sweetheart at seventeen, he had a sweet, rowdy baby boy and a beautiful wife. He was introduced to an entirely new world when his child was born after only six months, when his wife realized that she couldn’t hide the truth anymore.
Open minded and young, Elijah didn’t understand why werewolves were kept a secret. He was excited about it, thought that people knew better than to kill each other en masse based on simple differences like that. He loved his family and respected his wife, but he wanted to show her that people would accept her, help her ease into merging her secret identity with the one that everybody knew and loved. He didn’t want his child to grow up in fear.
He only told trusted family friends at first. He wanted to come to his wife with a big, romantic gesture, showing her all at once how many people loved her no matter what differences they had. He had no way of knowing that his best and oldest friend was a hunter, that his wife and child would be murdered while he was at work not a day after breaking the news.
Elijah’s belief that all people were good with some bad mixed in died that day. He left his hometown and began travelling, unable to stay at the home where he’d essentially put his family up for execution. When we was twenty four he ended up in Dawnbreak, and he’s stayed there since.
Over the years, Elijah became familiar with the local pack that had built the town, and while pushing himself deeper and deeper into the politics of the town he essentially made himself a pain in the ass for them to kill. Rather than a target, he became an ally, particularly when he was elected as Mayor.
- Wife and Son, deceased.
- Red Redford - played by DragonBlue, Savage River Alpha and deputy chief of the local SD
- Alice Gregory - played by Morrigan, werewolf and member of the local hunter family.

OPEN FOR ADOPTION
Since the destruction of the Red River Society, Jack has become a freelance hunter. However, his real business lies in blood sport. Along with his nephew Clay Hunter, Jack live captures werewolves and other supernatural creatures and forces them to fight for the entertainment of an underground audience.
Jack stands over six feet with thick muscle. With a deep voice and harsh, judgmental eyes, Jack is not always a comfortable person to be around. Although he can put on a friendly, helpful demeanor for the purposes of his job as a doctor, it is simply a job that he took to further narrow the range of blacklist supernatural suspect - werewolves, vampires and the like. He is often found in simple clothes outside of work, jeans and t-shirts that are easy to move in, as well as coats large enough to hide weapons beneath.
He is a tightly wound man, paranoid and watchful.
He has been in Dawnbreak for several months, and has already done a number on their werewolf count, particularly with the Loners. His nephew, Jason"Clay" Hunter, is also active in Dawnbreak, and Jack is proud to see that his nephew has kept the family side business going - capturing live wolves to use for sport and blood, their past time is both sadistic and lucrative, and Jack is excited to get back to his roots. One of the few Red River Society members to survive the purge led by Red Redford and Savage River, Jack continues to hunt with his nephew as fringe agents now focusing primarily on running their fighting ring. He is yet to learn that his nephew has become a vampire and one of the creatures he lives to kill.
