―Unidentified Watcher[src]

An unidentified Watcher was a friar who found and trained a Slayer in Europe circa 1600.


The Watcher trained the Slayer, taught her to fight with and without weapons, as well as to read. Under his watch, she fought and slayed the vampire Saint Just.[1]

However, the Watcher was unable to stop the people from the village, roused by a priest who believed her to be a witch, from attacking her and burning her in the stake. As she was consumed by the flames, she kept her eyes on the Watcher. He then opened the town gates to the surviving vampires of St. Just's horde.[1]

Powers and abilities[]

The Watcher was an accomplished warrior in his own right, for his Slayer grew to be an adept in both armed and unarmed combat under his tutelage. He was also an educated and skillful man, given how he taught his Slayer to read.[1]
