     Faith is the current Slayer, the Chosen One whose destiny is larger than that of any other mortal. She has spent far too long running away from that destiny but now that Justin has caught up with her she is being introduced to the larger world of the supernatural. Being thrust into the shadow war unprepared is not the Benandanti way, so first she must endure Justin's harsh training methods. Methods which are designed not for a human vampire hunter, but for a superhuman assassin of the supernatural.

Justin 'Just' Stoat - d. 2000

Benandanti team member . Marksman and Scout. Justin survived the betrayal of Zeke and managed to kill the sorcerer before he could complete his bid for power. Almost immediately he was sent to southern China to study under master Po. His studies were cut short however when an ancient vampire decided that converting Justin would be a good experiment. However since Justin has spent most of his life hunting vampires he knows that they are among the weakest supernatural creatures in existence and has no desire to remain one. To this purpose he has enlisted the aid of Faith to retrieve a sacred book that might hold the key to his conversion into a human being.
