though humans aren't quite as strong as the supernaturals are, they aren't without their own share of abilities. though, some of these things come a little bit more difficultly than it might for the supernaturals! many humans, or mortals as they are sometimes referred to, have been turned against the supernaturals due to a fear of the supernatural beings. they often make up hunters and investigators, either looking for answer among the supernatural world, or dedicating their lives to hunting them.

ABILITIES: some may be hunters, skilled fighters and weapons specialists as well as demonologists or paranormal investigators with an extensive knowledge about the supernatural world.


Vampires are magically reanimated human corpses which are inhabited by the spirits of the deceased person and who closely resemble the living human they were before their transformation. Vampires feed and survive on the blood of the living, typically on that of humans, and they can also transform other humans into more of their kind with their own blood. for more information check here.

ABILITIES: superhuman speed, strength, reflexes, mind control or "glamoring." vampires can also heal others with their blood, but this has its consequences. those who come into contact with a vampire's blood will have strong dreams about them--typically sexual.

to become a vampire, one must be bitten while on the brink of death. they will consume the vampire's blood before dying, and be reborn four days later. for a while, their cravings and urges will be very strong, almost to the point that is very difficult to control or resist. usually, a newly sired vampire has a very strong bond with their sire, able to feel them on a strong emotional level..


Werewolves are humanoid carnivores, the ultimate combination of wolves and humans. They feed on prey found nearby, which, due to the increase of urban areas, are mostly people. When they devour the flesh of victim they leave a recognizable trace on the prey: they always eat the heart, although they do sometimes eat more of the body. The transformation only occurs after a werewolf bites a victim, the way werewolves continue the spread of lycanthropy. However, they are also capable of having children who are born werewolves. In their werewolf form, their bodies change rapidly, changing into a fitting definition of predators. Their nails increase to sharp, long claws, fangs increase in size and eyes resemble those of a wolf rather than of a human. for more information check here.

ABILITIES: supernatural strength, enchanced agility, super speed, super stamina, generation, invlulnerability


Witches are humans gifted with the power to affect change by supernatural or paranormal means, a practice known as "witchcraft". Witches are generally female, though there are a few male witches, referred to as "warlocks".

Many escaped the Salem witch trials and sought refuge in New Orleans. for more information check here

magical abilities, such as producing fire, levitation, curses and hexes, blood magic, and even necromancy


A shapeshifter has the ability to take the form of any animal. To do so, the shifter must first mentally observe the animal's form in specific detail, a process known as imprinting.

ABILITIES: shapeshifting into dangerous animals.


Faeries appear as beautiful creatures with pointed ears and glossy thin skin. This is however just an illusion to appeal to the dominant species of their current dimension.

Faeries are extremely attractive to humans as well as to vampires. for more information check here

Hunters are normal humans who have otherwise been thrust into the world of the supernatural. This can either be through some kind of tragedy, or from curiosity or from some kind of personal experience of their own. Hunters are typically nomadic, and very skilled in combat against all creatures of the supernatural. They wander the country in search of things to take down and people to save ("saving people, hunting things,") and whether their job keeps them in line with the law is questionable.

ABILITIES: knowledge of the supernatural, skills with combat and armed weapons


A slayer is a girl who is chosen and who is born with great abilities and prowess.
