Malleus Maleficarum[edit]

A Hunter of the Malleus Maleficarum, a Christian organization dedicated to seeking and destroying what goes bump in the night which largely consisted of Catholics historically, but today includes Eastern Orthodox, Anglicans, and other high church Protestants.

(Disclaimer! Modeled loosely off of the new World of Darkness Hunter: the Vigil conspiracy and its endowments, this is for my home game and I reference a morality system which I'm not detailing in this article, is found in the World of Darkness core book.)
