The enigmatic contact known as Chester began contacting hunters across the country with information about strange cases and dark conspiracies a few years ago. He is believed to be a government accountant finding places where the ledgers didn’t balance and sending more capable parties to investigative the most disturbing of the budgetary anomalies he could isolate.
That anonymity didn’t keep him safe in the end. Vampire Jack used Chester as bait to bring the other members of the Contingent to the killing floor. They chose not to risk biting the hook, and a video of Chester being horrifically tortured by Vampire Jack hit the internet soon after.
With his assumed demise, the vast network of individuals comprising the Contingent continues their Vigil, finding new ways forward in the struggle against the darkness without their founder’s guidance.
