Danger Level: Extremely high. The Master is extremely powerful and unless you happen to be a professional full-time vampire slayer – stay away.
Identification: Like most vampires he likes to wear black leather, generally avoids the sun, and feeds exclusively on human blood. Identifying him among the group of other vampires is also easy – he is the one all other vampires are afraid of.
How to Avoid: The Master is usually trapped inside a time/space bubble of some sort. The best way to avoid him is to never ever visit him. For any reason. Even if you think he doesn’t want you to.
Suggested Actions in Case of Encounter: Unless you are a vampire slayer, the best thing you can hope for is that he would sire you instead of simply killing you. So, be polite and try to prove your worthiness.
Suggested Killing Techniques: Crosses and other holy symbols have no effect on a vampire as powerful as The Master. Decapitation or a wooden stake through heart are your only options. Getting close enough to strike, however, might prove to be tricky.
NOTE: Unlike in the case of other vampires, The Master’s body will not turn to dust after he is killed, and his skeleton will remain. Do yourself a big favor and destroy the skeleton too.
