Welcome to WaTchers: The Virtual Series!

Five Years..120 Episodes...Not Too Shabby...

Each Watchers season contained 24 episodes that began in September 2002 with our final episode airing June 2008.

We don't create new episodes any longer (and we have no plans to start again so please don't ask). We're sure once you see everything we put into these episodes, thanks to many talented people over the years, you might understand - it's a lot of time consuming work.  However, if our fans decide to stick around we're happy to consider the prospects of TV movies now and then.

As a Watcher on Active Duty, Captain Sean Rayne worked on the front lines of the Council's war against demonkind. Originally from the London office, Rayne was reassigned to the Watchers main headquarters about three years ago. It was at that time that he began a close working relationship with Council Chairman Horatio Tyrell, aiding him in his resurrection of the 314 Project.

When one of the cyber-vampire prototypes from 314 escaped, Rayne instructed his Slayer, Katherine Allison, to take the specimen alive. Once they had the vampire in the lab, Rayne ordered Katherine to tell no one about the capture. Suspicious of Rayne's behavior and worried about the dangers presented by the cyber-vamp, Katherine disobeyed Rayne and told Jocasta Rosenberg and Sebastian Giles what had happened. Later, when Tyrell confronted Katherine, Jocasta, and Giles in the Progenitor Room, Rayne's complicity with the Chairman's schemes was revealed when, via radio, Tyrell ordered Rayne to take the cyber-vamp to Sunnydale. When Katherine and Jocasta tried to stop Rayne from getting away with the evidence, he fired at them in the hangar atop the Council Tower. They trailed him anyway and managed to shoot down his skimmer. When Rayne confronted the two at the crash site, Katherine knocked him unconscious. Before they could take the cyber-vamp for themselves, reinforcements from Tyrell arrived, and the two women were forced to flee. Once he was back on his feet, Rayne headed for Sunnydale. When Giles's assault team took out the 314 facility, Rayne was horribly burned in the subsequent fire. He was captured and is now under guard in the Council Infirmary.

Rayne went through Council schooling and training with both Giles and Veronica Wyndam-Pryce, but is close to neither of them, being too resentful of their rise within the Council. Giles worked with Rayne for some time in the London office but did not enjoy the experience, describing him as "cold" and "callous" and basically "a pain in the arse." Katherine found working with Rayne no more enjoyable, disliking his dictatorial approach and disagreeable personality. Though arrogant and controlling with a penchant for gloating, Rayne is definitely a survivor -- a fact which doesn't set well with those who know him best.
