Hicks tells Priest that his niece and ex-girlfriend have all been attacked by the vampires and that he needs his help to rid the town of them. Priest goes to the Church to be re-instated as an active vampire slayer. The Church refuses because of non-belief and tells Priest not to mention any attacks to the inhibitions of the city.
