Sean O’Malley was born in 1859 to Irish immigrants, John and Alice. His parents were devout Catholics and raised Sean to be as well. John O’Malley was a dock worker until he joined the US Army to fight in the War Between the States. John served in the Irish Brigade and rose through the ranks. He eventually earned a battlefield commission and left the Army at the conclusion of the War as a Lieutenant.
When John returned home, he went to work at St John’s College in Fordham, New York. John took his family with him and enrolled Sean into the college’s junior course when he reached the age of 12.
Sean was a good student and well liked by his peers and teachers. Sean stayed enrolled after he finished his proprietary education. He excelled in religious studies and his deep-seated spiritual calling drew him to a life dedicated to Christ.
Sean became close with Father Henri Beaumount, an elderly French Jesuit who taught religious philosophy and history at St John’s. The new professor of the sciences, a young Spanish Jesuit named Father Miguel de DeSota was extremely strict and rigid in his philosophies and unyielding with his students. Sean did not like the priest. Father Henri and Father DeSota did not care for each other. Most of the Jesuits on campus were divided among the two camps. Everyone, except for Father Micheal O’Davey. Father Micheal was on friendly terms with both Jesuits.
In the spring of 1875, Sean was staying with his parents, just off campus. In the late hours of the night, Sean was awakened by a shouted argument between his father and a man with a deep, raspy voice. Sean got up to see what the argument was about, but as he reached the top of the stairs, he heard his mother scream and a loud thump, as if something heavy hitting the floor. Sean ran toward the parlor, but when he got to the bottom of the stairs, the room was completely engulfed in flames. Through the flames, he saw a dark figure kneeling over his father’s body and his mother was pinned to the burning wall. The dark figure turned toward Sean and laughed hideously. Sean lost consciousness. Sean awoke in the evening. He was lying in a bed in the rectory and Father Henri was praying beside him. Father Henri told Sean that both of his parents had died in the fire. Strangely though, no other rooms in the house had burned.
Sean struggled with his courses for the remainder of the term. In the summer, he began searching for answers to his parent’s death. He questioned anyone that was there the night of the fire about what they saw or heard. One of the first things he learned was Father DeSota carried him from the house. One night after questioning the constable, Sean was attacked by a large figure, draped in shadows. Sean fought as hard as he could, but was easily bested by the “creature.” Just when Sean feared that he would be killed, Father DeSota appeared wielding a rapier in one hand and a silver crucifix in the other. The Jesuit drove the shadowed menace off and took Sean to the rectory.
Father DeSota explained to Sean that he belonged to a secret sect of the Jesuit order, called Deamonium Venator. He was one of two in the entire United States. He explained to Sean that his father held certain information that the Devil’s minions wanted. His mother was a bargaining chip to get that information. The Jesuit offered to take Sean under his wing and show him the art of fighting the Devil’s minions. Sean took the priest’s offer and spent the remainder of his college career studying and training.
When Sean completed his time at St John’s College, he left for seminary studies at Immaculate Conception Seminary School of Theology in South Orange, New Jersey, 30 miles from his home in Fordham. Sean did well in seminary and continued to train his fighting arts. In the spring of 1879, Sean O’malley was ordained a priest and took vows in the Society of Jesus. Sean returned to Fordham to continue his training with Father DeSota.

Not sure, never saw it ... Think Poe, Dracula, Penny Dreadful, or any other Victorian Gothic or even Holmes and the like
Poe more for flavor, the more I think about it, because I can't think of anyone in Poe actively hunting the things that go bump in the night.
