* AssholeVictim: Hamilton Chase from the first arc. Not only did he [[UngratefulBastard backstab the vampire hunter who had saved his life]] and feed him to his quarry in return for fame, he fully assists with the European vampires' coven and feeds aspiring starlets to them. When he encounters the newly vampirized Pearl, he doesn't even ''remember'' he gave her to his partners the previous night. It's a bit hard to feel bad for Pearl making him her first kill. Little Feet Beales also deserves note given he spent years selling musicians to vampires to have their blood drained.
