Some could not resist the ancient urge to satisfy their blood lust with the warm, flowing liquid of a living being. In those instances, errant members of the Network were tracked by the death squad known as the Shield, from whom there was no escape. Jordan lived within the guidelines of the Network, as did most of his kind, in present day Baltimore.
