Eternally damned creatures of the night, cursed to forever feed off the blood of their kin. For years, they have hidden in the shadows of the human world. They keep their existence, for the most part, respectfully within their vampire society.
And if they get me take this spike to my heart and
One misstep into the company of the wrong person, one mistake, just one little slip up is all it takes; and that is exactly how the hunters came to be.
And if they get me and the sun goes down
When they came into existence is just as much a mystery as the first vampire's arrival on earth. All that is known, is that somewhere along the line a vampire slipped up and the turn out of that resulted in the formation of a society that is despised, if not simply feared, by every vampire that has ever had the luxury of escaping from it's well-trained sights.
And if they get me take this spike and
You put the spike in my heart
And if the sun comes up will it tear the skin right off our bones
The Vampire Hunters may have been a part of everyday life in the earlier centuries, but at some point the world stopped believing. At some point the damned creatures of the night went into hiding and as each generation grew further and further from the events of nightmarish world in the early centuries, the skeptics started to question the reality of the ever present 'Vampire' threat.
And then as razor sharp white teeth rip out our necks I saw you there
Yes, at some point the world stopped believing all together and those that didn't were out casted or locked away. At this point, the society as well was forced to go underground.
Someone get me to the doctor, someone get me to a church
The age old guardians of the night and protectors of the living were forced to slip under the floorboards of everyday society and put much more caution in their system of hunting and destroying the deadly threat to society; a threat made so much more dangerous by the public's refusal to acknowledge it's existence. They were forced into the shadows, until now.
Where they can pump this venom gaping hole
Watsonville, California, year 2008. The frustration at first was the simple fact that they had not discovered it until they did, and then? Then the sheer anger that these arrogant creatures thought they could silence a town and pick them off one at a time, and that they had been getting away with that for this long. The society was not pleased.
And you must keep your soul like a secret in your throat
The society was not what it used to be. While some families managed to keep the old ways and pass their knowledge on through the generations, creating some hunters as well-taught and skilled as those from the early centuries, this was not the case with most. The society began picking up strays and others lost to society. The esteemed Hunters were taking in the trash of the public off the street and teaching them.
And if they come and get me
Despite the slight fall within The Society, they still focus their energy on the same tasks that they always have, and right now their main priority lies in one Watsonville, California.
What if you put the spike in my heart
So there is your plot, or rather the community's newest addition to its plot. We are going to bring in a once esteemed society of vampires hunters, with members ranging from sons taught with the information passed down through the generations of a family within the Society, to kids who were abandoned on the streets only to be taken and swept up into the secrets of the old ways.

Background Information: Where did they grow up, how did they end up in the society, what are their reasons behind becoming a hunter. In taking up a hunter as a character, your are getting directly involved in the sub-plot of the community, and thus you need a developed character background. You'll need to include your character's personality in here and it should build off of their history. In other words, rhyme to the reason? What are they and why are they that way. You should include your character's reason for living the life that they do. Why are they in the society; and don't just say that it's a family business. Kids with a family history involved are obviously going to have an advantage in some areas, but why didn't they just turn away from the job and go be an English professor instead. Please be thorough.
