Hunter Jackson dreamed of sailing the high seas and seeing the world so he
joined the Navy the minute he graduated high school. He eventually became a top flight
Navy Seal and saw tons of military action around the world including Iraq, and
Afghanistan in the early and mid 2000's. Hunter inadvertently joined the hunt for the paranormal
one fateful night when his Navy Seal team was sent into Afghanistan to
capture or kill top terrorist operatives. Upon entering some
remote caves, as per their intel, the Seal team got more than they
bargained for. There were no terrorists but rather a nest full of
rabid feral vampires. The supernatural monsters promptly
dispatched the surprised soldiers with extreme paranormal prejudice. Hunter was the last
man standing and he some how kept a cool head despite the disturbing discovery that vampires exist. His bullets failed him
dropped his rifle to the ground and instead pulled out his trusty US
Navy MK3 MOD 0 diving/survival knife. His large muscular frame and
height of 6' 4" made the vampires seem puny compared to him but
their supernatural strength was capable of flinging several tons of weight about as
if it was a bag of feathers.
Hunter had no intel about vampires but he knew
they were powerful enough to take out his entire team within
seconds. He somehow drew superhuman strength from within
himself somewhere unknown because he knew the only way out of that cave
alive was to defeat the six vampires that surrounded him. They
growled like lions as their glowing red eyes stared upon him with gluttonous
rage. They inched closer to him ready to pounce while
blood dripped from their sharp fangs. With his
knife, his extensive martial arts, and Navy Seal training, along with his sheer will, Hunter engaged in mortal combat with some of the most powerfully
hellish beasts on Earth. One human vs six enraged vampires devoid
of humanity, or even any sentient intelligence beyond their animal needs.
With a roar of rage Hunter charged them and plunged his knife into one vampire
while kicking one away behind him. He elbowed another as he pulled
the knife out and then ripped the throat out of another while getting
one in a headlock and snapping his neck. The sixth one grabbed Hunter from behind but he reverse head butted him and then snapped his
neck from behind as he kicked a vampire in front of him. The
battle raged on as Hunter realized that the ones with the snapped necks
stayed down the longest because so far he wasn't killing any of
them. Unfortunately they would get back up again just as Hunter
had temporarily disabled some more of the horrid monsters.
He remembered how vamps were killed in movies but
it was dark out so there was no sun, and he had no holy water or
crosses. Then it hit him as he hit some more vampires with a burst of superhuman strength. He had a small wooden Jesus statue
his Grandmother gave him as a child. He always carried it into
battle for good luck. So he he gambled and dropped his knife. He
instead wielded a make shift wooden stake since the head of Jesus was
kind of pointy. Upon exposing it, the vampires stopped for a
minute with minor looks of shock on their faces which they snapped out of
quickly and lunged at Hunter. He plunged the Jesus stake into one
vampire's heart and it fell to the ground screaming in agony as Hunter
repeated his actions on the others after several minutes more of
The vampires lie on the dirt floor of the cave
gripping their chests in pain but they still weren't dying. He
then plunged the Jesus stake in one and left it in him. Sure
enough the vampire burst into flames and then was reduced to ashes
within seconds as Hunter exclaimed, "Holy Crap!".
Amazingly the Jesus stake didn't burn due to the flames being unholy in
nature. Unholy flames cannot burn a holy relgious artifact. Hunter repeated this but was stopped by the last two who
recovered from the quick stakings. At this point his strength was
gone and he couldn't fight anymore so he ran for the cave
entrance. The vampirical duo growled as they chased him. By
sheer luck the sun had just risen and Hunter turned around when he heard
bloodcurdling screams. The vampires burst into flames in the
light of the holy sun and incinerated into ash that blew away in the
warm Afghan wind.
Hunter never spoke of his experience because he
knew he would be branded as being crazy. Especially with no
evidence left that the vampires ever existed. He told the government
that his Seal team had been surprised by an overwhelming force of
terrorists. He honorably discharged from the Navy because he
realized there was a war far more dangerous than human terror being
fought on this Earth. The war on pure paranormal evil.
Hunter became a paranormal mercenary for hire but he also helped out
people and took out various evil entities on his own free of charge.
We here at Mystic Investigations hired Hunter for various missions and
eventually decided to hire him as a permanent employee. Our
invaluable head of security!
