A Vampire Hunter is a wizard who professionally hunts vampires, despite such an occupation being illegal per paragraph twelve of the Guidelines for the Treatment of Non-Wizard Part-Humans. During the Quidditch World Cup in 1994 a wizard, infatuated with a group of Veela, claimed to be a Vampire Hunter who had killed at least ninety vampires by that point in time.
