|The Preacher Man: Cain Abraham Callahan|
|Cain is an odd blend of bad attitude and pure spirit. At his core, he's a man with a strong set of morals, a heart capable of loving fiercely, and a steadfast devotion to his faith. Most of the time, however, it's hard to find under his perpetually cross scowl. Curt, abraisive, and otherwise harsh, his short fuse, impatience, and too-blunt sense of honesty make him difficult to approach. His sour attitude has earned him more enemies than friends, but those who get close enough find that, for all his thorns, Cain is an extremely lovable man.|
Of Cain's greatest faults, his weakness is his temper...for most of his life, Cain's had problems dealing with anger. Violence and physical activity are his favorite outlets, and when he's on a hunt, it's one of his safest. He does, however, have a tendency to get himself into trouble. Among his lesser faults, Cain thrives on a rather outlandish sense of deadpan humor that seems at odds with his gruff personality to those who don't know him. Driven and dedicated, he's something of a workaholic...in his line of work, that's what you call saving lives.
|Abe: The Pilgrimage|
|Born Cain Abrams in Detroit, Michigan, Cain started life as a low-life well on his way. Born to a junkie mother, his father was a street thug that was murdered by the time Cain was two. Starting with vandalism, petty theft, and bullying his peers as a child, by the time he entered his teen years he was well on his way with a habit of his own, dealing on the side, and making friends with local gangs. His saving grace came in the form of his biological mother's death when Cain was fifteen. A ward of the state, he entered the home of Felicia Callahan, a foster care provider with a reputation for turning around the worst cases Social Services threw her way.|
He came expecting Hell, and that's just what he got...but at the end of the gauntlet, he also found a family.
Under Felicia's no-nonsense rule, Cain ended up getting clean and sober, doing better in school, and willingly staying out of trouble. More than once, Felicia asked Cain about adoption, but was refused. Just before his eighteenth birthday, however, he finally agreed and allowed her to legally adopt him, changing his name to Cain Abraham Callahan. Buoyed by improved academic performance and inspired by her gift of GRAY'S ANATOMY on his sixteenth birthday, Cain continued his academic pursuits and set his sights on a medical degree.
Bound for John Hopkins, his plans changed when Felicia took on another particularly problematic foster charge named Beth Ann Woodman. Changing his choice of schools from Hopkins to the more local Wayne State, he spared no expense in trying to help Felicia turn the younger girl around, just as she'd done for him. Earning himself a wealth of new scars and a little more trouble with the authorities while protecting the unpredictable and troublesome teenager, their work paid off as Annie found her way, and ultimately joined the ranks of their little family. Later on, after Cain graduated and began his residency, he teamed up with his new younger sister to help Felicia's next problem child, and his future sibling: a fourteen year old abuse victim named Valkyrie Prescott.
|The Other Side of Fine|
|The Callahans are, for the most part, a typical family save for one thing: they hunt monsters.|
Felicia Callahan, working in the employ of the Watchers' Council, did not simply adopt three troubled children: she adopted a Slayer, a Guardian, and a man who would go on to be one of the Council's most dedicated Watchers in its history.
Currently, the family still lives as a unit in Detroit, where Felicia continues to foster troubled children and, with her own family's help, sends them back into the world ready to change their lives. Cain is Valkyrie's Watcher, and both do all they can to help their sister Annie learn all she can about her heritage as a Guardian as well as perfect her abilities as a witch.
