Parents, Gina and Matthew and younger sister, Phoebe
Rafferty is a high school student in his junior year. He has lived in Sunnydale all his life, so is used to the weirdness of the town, without actively being involved in it. Upon the insistence of his parents he is trained in martial arts and with guns, so he is able to take care of himself if needed. He has a part time job working for Rebekah Ellis in her department store.
