The question was about vampire hunters. I wished to find out just what kind they would be trying to track down all the time.
Probably hunters for any kind you can think of. Anyone from Catholic exorcists who take on demonic entities to skinheads who stomp goth kids. You
would first have to define what you think a vampire really is, and then you will see who is opposed to that sort.
I wondered if your specific view was if they would be in any way connected to shadows- as i have heard a few claims "out there" about ling
psi-types, that they would become shadows when they die.
There are two different schools of thought here. First, shadow-beings may not be what one would consider to be a true vampire at all, but a very real
entity nonetheless. Second, that a true vampire may have mystical powers of shadowplay. To be able to manipulate and exploit the darkness.
And lastly, i wanted to know, what would make them so bad they would have to be "hunted"?
That would really be a matter of ones own perspective really. The Catholic priest may hunt them out of duty, while other hunters may do it more out of
tradition, and then of course there is good old-fashioned revenge.
Why do people kill other people? Some of these same reasons could be applied to why there are people who hunt vampires. And of course, there is also
the possibility that vampires are not hunted by humans alone, but other beings as well.
