The truth about her ancestry is not an easy thing for Dana to accept – she was deliberately created to perform a task, to find something that should stay hidden, or it might threaten the world of humans as Dana knows it. Her existence is tied to the myth of the Nephilim, the descendants of angels. Dana must prepare for a long search in ancient Egypt, hunted by creatures of darkness.

The legend of vampires is an ancient one - maybe leading up to the Old Testament myth of the Nephilim, the descendants of the Watchers and human women.
Nephilim Quest 1 Shadowhunter
The most alarming things were the angels that he began to see every once in a while. At first their beauty overjoyed him, but soon learned they were not at all the angels of his imagination or belief. He heard the whispered term "Nephilim", and learned what it meant. These were not angels at all, but abominations. He found an old book that described the offspring of angels and men as terrifying creatures – without empathy and without any positive emotions. They showed no remorse when they killed people – and worse, they drank their blood, turning them into horrible monsters of the darkness. Half human, half shadow, these Nephililm-created creatures needed to drink human blood to survive - the blood seemed to return some of their humanness for a while. This they sought constantly, living in a state of endless misery, unable to satisfy their appetites. He learned from what he read that there were other kinds of Nephilim, good ones, but he had never seen them - of course, why would they come to a place like the City of Immortals, with its superficial attraction and underlying decay and shadows?
