Delilah lived with her parents in Sommerset, Pennsylvania. Her father, Alexander, was abusive and mean, but this changed when the angel Abner took him as a vessel.
Abner was nicer and more loving, and both Delilah and her mother came to adore the "new" Alexander. One day, Delilah met her father's best friend, Gadreel, unaware that he was an angel.
Delilah said hi to Gadreel and watched as Abner asked Gadreel to come back later, since he, Mrs. Sarver and "the niblet" were going to see a movie.
Gadreel did return, and killed Abner, along with Delilah's father Alexander.
