Hunter Caine is the son of Alastair Caine and is the older half-brother of Parker Caine. He is a demonic assassin tasked with collecting DNA from powerful witches, such as the Elders and The Charmed Ones.
On the Hunt for DNA
In Other Women, Hunter was tasked with obtaining DNA samples from Elder witches. As part of this pursuit he targeted Niko Hamada for death. At the end of the episode, he reports to Alastair about his failure, concluding that witches had found spell to throw him off the scent and erase the memories about the person (or thing), which he was supposed to find. He also addresses to Alastair as "dad", revealing their kinship to the audience.
In Kappa Spirit, Hunter no longer remembers Niko was his target (Due to The Charmed Ones rewriting time), but remains dedicated to his mission to obtain DNA from powerful Witches. He kills Dr. Gregorian, when the chairman accidentally caught him stealing DNA of Macy. In Bug a Boo, Hunter defends his brother from their father's harshness when Alastair is angry at Parker because he keeps failing all the missions assigned to him. Later, he is in the guise of a waitress, is visiting Parker in the restaurant and instructs him to find a way to run an errand of father's.
Hunter seems to have a sadistic and somewhat violent personality, showing disdain for humans and their emotions. He takes pleasure in desecrating Trip's grave and is completely remorseless in his attempts to murder Niko Hamada.
Despite this he displays affection and concern for his half-brother Parker.
Hunter's human appearance is a tall, handsome white man who seems to be in his twenties. He has brown hair and hazel eyes.
It is not known whether he looks in demonic form like his father, or whether his demonic form is very different.
