Mr. Trick is a vampire of African-American origin who came to Sunnydale with his boss, Kakistos, to hunt down the Slayer Faith. Unlike Kakistos, who is driven by animalistic instincts, Mr. Trick is an innovator who enjoys comfort and prefers not to get his hands dirty. Trick enjoys the amenities of modern occidental life, such as fast food employees and pizza delivery boys. He abandons his master to meet his demise at the hands of Faith and Buffy Summers because he considers Kakistos' retrograde and "cheap".

Biography

Mr. Trick is a vampire of African-American origin who came to Sunnydale with his boss, Kakistos, to hunt down the Slayer Faith. Unlike Kakistos, who is driven by animalistic instincts, Mr. Trick is an innovator who enjoys comfort and prefers not to get his hands dirty. Trick enjoys the amenities of modern occidental life, such as fast food employees and pizza delivery boys. He abandons his master to meet his demise at the hands of Faith and Buffy Summers because he considers Kakistos' retrograde and "cheap".

After Kakistos's death, Mr. Trick hosts "SlayerFest '98", assembling a group of human and demonic contestants each of whom gambles a large amount of money for the chance to hunt down and kill Buffy and Faith (having never seen Faith, the assassins mistake Cordelia for the second Slayer). Afterward Trick is drafted into serving Mayor Richard Wilkins as the leader of his vampire minions. Trick hires Ethan Rayne as part of the plot to obtain the tribute that Wilkins requires to pay to the demon Lurconis (Band Candy), and later arranges a vampire welcoming committee when Spike returns to Sunnydale (Lovers Walk).

Acting as Wilkins' middle-man, and later as his personal hitman, proves to be his undoing. Trick leads a small team of vampires to personally eliminate Buffy and Faith. He manages to injure Buffy and has her at his mercy, but as he gloats that he will now taste a Slayer's blood, he is staked through the back by Faith. Hours later, Mr. Trick's position is filled by Faith herself. (Consequences)
