The Hunters


I have recently heard it said at parties that The Hunters are dead and buried.

Not literally; but people think the organisation as a whole is defunct and is only a tale to frighten debutante vampires.

My opinion is that it is just waiting until it can surface again and sink its teeth into us. Others dismiss this as a chilling thought; I prefer to prepare for the worst.

I quizzed Nosferatu, the New Vampire representative. Of course he would not tell me anything, but when I asked he did let slip some telling details.

The Committee passed the law that allows The Hunters to hunt us, so we can look for no help in that quarter, as neither the Human Police nor the werewolves are at all bothered about vampires hunting other vampires as long as we do not expose our existence to the humans.

In fact, they would be quite happy if we wiped each other out. Then werewolves could co-exist peacefully with humans and everyone could sing in perfect harmony, which is as likely as your latest government being beloved throughout the land.

At the moment The Hunters are posing around the streets, turning up near our castles and making threatening noises.

People see this as typical New Vampire behaviour : all of the looks, but none of the substance.

It is only the fact that our Ruler took action and decimated The Hunters that keeps them from hunting us.

If we changed Rulers, which we rarely do, they would try to hunt us again, so now they wait.

New Vampires do manage to wait well, especially the longer-lived ones and if they saw an opportunity would seize it by the jugular, just as we are waiting for an opportunity to get rid of them.

Debutante Vampires before Dracula came out, vampires who had been newly turned vampire were taught the rules of society. They then “came out” when they were deemed presentable to vampire society as debutantes. They are the only Old Vampires who have a zero level of Status and are acceptable.
