Encountered primarily by Raziel in Legacy of Kain: Defiance, They were the among the highest ranked of the Vampire Hunter classes seen in Defiance and were seen predominantly in Raziel's chapters in the Blood Omen era at the Cemetery and Pillars of Nosgoth - although they would also be featured later on in the story in Vorador's Mansion.

Vampire Hunter Sorceresses were the spell casters of Moebius's Vampire hunter faction, encountered by Raziel in the Blood Omen era of Defiance.[Defiance][Defiance/4][Defiance/6][Defiance/12][Defiance strategy guide]

The exposed thighs of the were branded or marked by a curious maroon-red symbol and another distinctive spiky symbol was tattooed in black across the right eye of the sorceresses. Their hair was typically blond and worn in a ponytail held by a red band.

Like other spell casters the Sorceresses would typically avoid close combat and remain at a distance utilizing long-range projectiles, shields, teleportation and frequently enhancing their allies with boosting spells such as Amplify Damage, Regeneration and TK Shield - for this reason they were the highest priority in combat and should be targeted before the other Vampire hunter enemy classes

The Sorceresses were first encountered in the chapter Find the Path to the Pillars as Raziel returned to the Material Realm in the Blood Omen era and could later be encountered in the chapters Find the Location of Vorador's Mansion and Battle Kain.[Defiance][Defiance/4][Defiance/6][Defiance/12][Defiance strategy guide]


Like other spell-casters the abilities of the Vampire Hunter sorceresses are notably used to empower and buff allies - giving other Vampire hunter units more potency and arguably making themselves a higher priority in combat. Spells used to power-up other hunter allies include:

The Sorceresses also have some defensive and offensive abilities of their own, but these are rarely referred to in the same way as the ally buffs:
