Hunter

Hunters are paid assassins that are dispatched on missions to handle any issue that the Elders see as a potential problem in the vampire population. Any vampire who is seen as dangerous, out of control, a threat to humanity or to vampire kind, or is risking exposure to humans through their actions, often become the unwilling target of these well-trained soldiers. Most hunters have been 'upgraded' with either special serums or mechanical parts to enhance their Extras, giving them the ability to operate at full potency at all times. Besides their advanced fighting skills and juiced up special abilities, hunters are known for carrying a long sharp needle like weapon known as a Shiv. It is used for piercing the heart of their target, killing them by damaging the one organ keeping them alive (see Starvation). Hunters are some of the most feared creatures in darkness, and if one crosses a vampire's path, it is usually the last thing they see.

Hunters often end up killing bystanders, the wrong vampire, or innocent vampires due to the Elders desire to deal with problems immediately, while relying on incomplete or incorrect data. Some vampires, including Justin, find fault with the hunters policy of "shoot first, ask questions later."

Many of the main characters in Lost in Shadow are hunters and are part of a hunter facility that is controlled by the Elders and overseen by Princess Katrina. These hunters include: Exile, Widow, Hell Razor and Freak.
