These brave, usually athletic, men and women often go for midnight jogs in a town where the likelihood of a jogger seeing a dead person is about ten times that of one of those Law & Order shows. Because they've seen so many dead people (and have taken a load of self-defense courses as a result), these joggers tend to be pretty capable of defending themselves from the average fledgling, but are no match for anyone with some real power or experience.
Only just beginning to grasp the basics of witchcraft, these apprentices can handle themselves against the weakest of the vampire and demon fodder, but not much more than that.
A monk who has taken various vows and oaths for righteousness. Oh, and he's spent his life training in the martial arts.
Grappler demons are a demon species known for their brute strength and their talent for fighting. Grapplers are muscular humanoids with grey skin and large tusks. Though superhumanly strong, they are vulnerable to poisons, wounds, and explosions.
Carnyss demons are a humanoid species of demon known for their fondness for muscles and mirrors. Carnyss demons are humanoid in appearance. However, they are bald and have facial ridges at the side of the forehead and also horns.
Lubber demons are a species of humanoid demon recognizable by their pale white skin, with dark, sunken eyes resembling a raccoon. Lubbers are also religious zealots that await their messiah, who will usher in the end of all human life.
Chaos demons are a humanoid species of demon, recognizable by their enormous antlers and the slime covering their skin. They are brown, humanoid creatures who are able to walk upright, and posess enormous antlers, similar to those of elks.
Fyarl demons are a humanoid species of demon foot soldier. They are known for serving other demons, even vampires, because they are rather dim-witted, but extremely violent.
This extreme violence is usually combined with considerable strength and stamina, so the Fyarl is one tough customer. This demon should definitely be avoided, if possible, by the weaker, less experienced demon hunters, unless they're accompanied by someone more seasoned than themselves.
A Sluggoth demon is a wormlike, natural predator demon resembling a giant maggot. The Sluggoth has one large mouth, which can expand the width of its body, allowing it to consume large creatures whole. It can burrow through the ground very fast, and snatch small prey and burst through the ground to take bigger targets.
A vampire who was sired when he/she was very young. Though a select few have been known to grow into strong, frightening legends, it's a rare occurrence, and most child vampires are wiped out about as easily as children who are slightly stronger than normal.
A vampire who still wears the stylish business suit that they wore in life. These vampires, while stronger than mere fledglings, are still pretty feeble to a demon hunter with a week's worth of experience.
A vampire who's lived for a couple centuries, and has the combat experience and physical prowess to prove it. They are often quite attractive and elegant creatures, which is a front they've used to survive for so long.
Located directly beneath the town of Sunnydale, the Hellmouth is the very thing that has drawn so many supernatural beings of both light and darkness to the otherwise unremarkable Californian town. In order to access the Hellmouth and battle the unspeakably powerful creatures within, one must track down a Kungai demon and tear off its horn, then insert this horn in a keyhole somewhere within Sunnydale.
