James was killed in the incident, and Matthew was also almost close to death, till they were rescued by James's wife Emma and many other back ups. What he didn't know, was that Matthew had paid the vampires to kill James on purpose, to sneak up on him and kill him, so Matthew could take over the leadership, but it went to Emma, so he pursued her and they got engaged, later down the road, he planned to even have her killed, but fell in love with her. He got her so wrapped around his finger that most of the leadership responsibilities were greatly influenced by him. After Jonathan's father died, Jonathan felt angered, a former passion of slaying bad vampires, he later saw them all as demons, with nonredeemable qualities, no matter who you were. It fueled his rage, and he became very cold and detached. When he turned 18, he went to Lavender Coast and went under the mentor-ship of Matthew Cooke, who was also secretly conducting a group that wanted to rid the world of all supernatural beings, which was against the clan's code, only slay vampires. Jonathan never knew about Matthew's secret society.
