Danger Sense: Supreme
"...Chakos peeked around the corner again. Nothing. He could feel that werewolf around here somewhere, but it was playing games with him. "Click Clack!" Chakos spun around. The creature was gnashing his teeth and claws in anticipation of first Will's pancreas, and then the pancreases of even more innocents. (Before Chakos had started investigating the supernatural, he had never known that werewolves have a thing for pancreases.) It had to be stopped. Suddenly, Chakos felt goose bumps all along his left side. He leapt to the right just as the were-beast dropped down on the spot where he had been standing..."
"... Chakos walked slowly through the antique store, stake in hand. Who'd have thought the kindly former owner would become a vampire after death? A shadow leapt from the darkness... and completely missed him. Chakos turned around to see the vampire sprawled on the broken remains of an antique chair, a piece of it sticking through its black heart..."
Environmental Awareness: Supreme
"...Chakos pulled a dagger from a fold in his coat, and gripped it tightly. The killer had already proved himself quite adept at avoiding Will's traps and had instead devised a trap of his own, but Chakos knew that the killer was in the adjacent room, he could feel it, he *knew* it. Ha. Fiberboard. So that's why the building was condemned. Chakos backed up a step, then smashed through the wall..."

"... The wizard let loose a mammoth eldrich blast. It screeched through the air, incinerating the poor captive girl. Damn. It kept coming, disintegrating the wizard's minions. It blew through the refrigerator... (Shut-up. It was the biggest thing to hide behind, O.K.?)... and it fizzled a foot in front of Chakos. "Wow, that didn't work at all, now did it?" taunted a startled Chakos. "Now, if I can't bring back a little girl in peace, I'll just have to bring back little pieces of you..."

"...Chakos found a strange, golden necklace in the foyer. His intuition *told* him to put it on. He continued into the next room, and found his prey. Chakos stared, puzzled, at the fiend. "Ummm, what are you doing?" he asked, with a slight ringing in his ears. The killer's eyes were squeezed shut, and a vein was popping out of his forehead. "Tr..ying to ma..ke y...ou..r hea..d ex..plod..e," he gasped. "Interesting. I guess you shouldn't leave powerful trinkets like this just lying around. Would you like to beg for mercy now, or later?..."
"...Chakos sized up the beast before him. He had never seen anything quite like it. About 12 feet tall, a couple dozen teeth, plenty of arms, all wrapped up in a whole lot of slime. It leapt for him, and Chakos saw his chance. He moved to the side, letting go of the rope he had been holding. Six tons of the warehouse's finest produce fell on the monster. What a way to go. Chakos would never feel the same about bananas..."

"... Chakos was fighting his first vampire. It punched him in the face. And again. And again. "I thought you guys just went for the throat!!" howled Chakos. "O.K., fine. I like to tenderize my dinner but hey, have it your way." The beast lunged, and Chakos stabbed with his stake. It stuck in the beast's solar plexus. He needed to get the hang of this. And quick. He pulled out a dagger and managed to separate the vamp's left hand from its arm. He got punched with a bloody stump. He pulled out another stake. This time it got lodged in the beast's shoulder. It sure is a good thing that he remembered to hide lots of weapons in his coat; he still needed some practice. He reached for another stake..."
