Legendary Vampiric Weaknesses

Holy Wafers

 

Similarly to legends of crucifixes, Holy Communion wafers, once blessed with transubstantiation, can ward off, burn, or even kill vampires with their anti-demonic, and anti-evil religious might. They must be wielded by faithful believers, however. In earlier mythologies, crucifixes did not have the power to hurt vampires - that was reserved solely for holy wafers - but the legends have blurred over time.
