Before their first hunt, hunters look exactly like normal humans however over the course of time they develop several strange features. For example, their ears will develop a point that can make them often become mistaken for mages, and their hair darkens eventually becoming a pitch black color. Their teeth and fingernails also sharpen, and eventually develop poisoned tips. Their skin pales, and their muscles also grow with each kill. They also eventually develop a widows peak and a thick British accent. Their pupil also slits, and their eyes will change to either a reddish or a yellow color. Though they generally dislike creatures of the night, they especially have a dislike for Vampires. They have a grudging respect for fausts and mages, and become quite close to the black horses that they ride, eventually developing a telepathic link with the steed.
Hunters are technically vulnerable to almost everything, however as they often become wounded during their battles their skin often becomes much tougher. They are also very intelligent and agile, however most things can still damage them easily.
