The head of this program was a controversial scientist named Doctor Martin Brenner. This involved subjecting volunteers to scientific experimentation utilizing psychoactive hallucinogens. One of these subjects, was a young girl who was given the designation of Eleven. Hawkins Power and Light also discovered a doorway into an alternate dimension that some have come to refer to as the "Upside Down". A creature from the Upside Down identified by some as a "Demogorgon", emerged from the Upside Down, and terrorized several locals. The sheriff of Hawkins, Indiana in the early 1980s was Jim Hopper. He was assisted by his deputies, Powell and Callahan. Some of the notable families in Hawkins includes the Wheeler family, the Byers family, the Henderson family, and the Sinclair family.
