* CompleteMonster: [[OurVampiresAreDifferent Tujiro XIV]], the vampiric [[WickedCultured Kabuki dancer]] from the 21st century, is a SerialKiller who [[WouldHurtAChild specializes in young boys]].

** Hrothgar may also be seen as this when Grendel decides ThenLetMeBeEvil and starts attacking the mead hall in earnest; sure, Hrothgar started the whole feud by attacking Grendel as a baby, [[KickThemWhileTheyAreDown when the latter was unable to escape]], but he's earned a FateWorseThanDeath with a monster eating up his men.

** What Grendel does to [[spoiler:Lucas Ottoman]] in ''Behold The Devil'', what Tujiro does to [[spoiler:Christine Spar's son]] in ''Devil's Legacy''
** What Grendel does to Stacy's beloved uncle and to Argent in ''Devil by the Deed''. Both actions mark Stacy, and when she finds out Hunter's responsible, it leads to his death.
** Hunter Rose, in ''Behold The Devil'', manages to see his entire legacy in the future through supernatural means. He then tears the pages describing this out of his journal, causing much heartbreak later on, simply because he can't fathom anyone else being Grendel.
