Summary[edit | edit source]
Naayéé'neizgháni is a Navajo woman who, according to Navajo legend, is a mythical Monster Slayer. Riding her horse across the desert, she comes across a caravan which had been attacked by vampires. She follows a trail that leads to a ghost town, where the local tavern was filled with merrily singing demons. She starts a fight in the bar and, with her bow and arrow, is able to kill many vampires.
After showing off her skills, the bartender finally reveals the location of a person he was hiding. She confronts the woman, Tó Bájíshchíní, who had killed her Watcher. Tó showed no remorse over killing a white man, like her own father, a cavalry man who had raped her Native American mother. The two started fighting and Naayéé'neizgháni managed to kill Tó, but not before being mortally wounded herself.
