Parents, Gina and Matthew and younger sister, Phoebe
Rafferty was born and raised in Sunnydale, so is used to the weirdness of the town, without actively being involved in it. Upon the insistence of his parents he was trained in martial arts and learned how to shoot a gun, so he is able to take care of himself if needed. He attended Sunnydale High School, before moving to Los Angeles for college, where he combines his studies with a thriving modeling career. Despite no longer being based in Sunnydale, he often returns to see his family, friends and girlfriend Nena, who is a student at Sunnydale University.
