Vampire being the smarter undead have for years been working with publishers and hollywood to muddy the waters of vampire lore. Each movie and book has it's own "take" on what powers and vulnerablities a vampire has. The net effect is the new vampire hunter often doesn't know even the basics of how to take care of a vampire, which is just how the vampires like it. Take care of the young vampire hunter and you'll never have to worry about old ones.
This was something you needed to know.
