Kakistos was an old-minded, traditionalist vampire who reveled in the torture and mutilation of his victims. He seemingly did not approve of modern developments such as the electric light, preferring to light his dwellings with candles instead. He had little interest in modern comforts that would've allowed him to establish a power base with little effort. It was this short-sightedness that led Trick to abandon his Master to be dusted by the Slayers.

Kakistos is Greek, it means the worst of the worst. It's also the name of a vampire so old his hands and feet are cloven.
Rupert Giles[src]

Kakistos, the Father was an ancient vampire master of Greek origin.

BiographyEdit

After killing Faith Lehane's unidentified first Watcher, Kakistos traveled to Sunnydale in 1998 to hunt down the Slayer herself. With him came an entourage of his minions, most of them fanatical followers led by Mr. Trick, Kakistos' right hand and a modern-minded vampire. Kakistos was finally slain by Faith who overcame her fear of him and impaled a four-by-four through his chest, staking and killing him.[1]

PersonalityEdit

There's a reason these vengeance crusades are out of style. It's the modern vampire who sees the big picture.
―Mr. Trick[src]

Kakistos was an old-minded, traditionalist vampire who reveled in the torture and mutilation of his victims. He seemingly did not approve of modern developments such as the electric light, preferring to light his dwellings with candles instead. He had little interest in modern comforts that would've allowed him to establish a power base with little effort. It was this short-sightedness that led Mr. Trick to abandon his master to be dusted by the Slayers.

Powers and abilitiesEdit

Guess you need a bigger stake, Slayer.
―Kakistos to Buffy[src]
  • Vampire abilities: Kakistos was an ancient vampire, so old he had developed cloven hooves and was incapable of assuming human face. He possessed the same powers and vulnerabilities as other vampires, albeit to a vast degree. For instance, he was able to effortlessly shrug off blows from Faith and Buffy and overpowered Angel in a fight.
  • Staking resistance: Common sized stake were ineffective against him, penetrating his skin but not dusting him. He could only be dusted by a large wooden stake.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • Contrary to Giles' translation, "Kakistos" simply means "the worst" in Greek, without any superlative.
