"A slasher. It's a type of undead, I guess... sort've like a vampire or a zombie. They're so full of anger that they don't wanna die. They hate love, youth, sex.... things they miss, from life. All I know for sure is that they're mean and hard to kill."
―Cassie Hack[src]

A slasher (also known as revenants and paladins) are a type of undead, resurrected by traces of black ambrosia extract flowing through their veins, and capable of feeling only murderous rage, which drives them to kill whomever they encounter.

Slashers are the primary antagonists of Hack/Slash and protagonist Cassie Hack has dedicated herself to hunting down and killing them.

History Edit

In a hidden village deep in Africa, a secluded tribe discovered a black flower that possessed the ability to animate corpses if it was liquefied and injected into the body. While bearing some semblance of life for a short time, the resurrected eventually degenerated into mindless, cannibalistic husks.

On a journey to Africa, a Greek philosopher named Akakios discovered the village and the black flowers, which he named black ambrosia. Destroying the village, scattering the tribe, and collecting the flowers, Akakios returned to Greece and began experimenting with them, improving on the tribe's methods by creating an oil-like substance that possessed the same properties as the tribe's recipe, with the added affect of granting special powers and slightly culling the usual mental degeneration of the resurrected.

A madman, Akakios believed there were two classes of humanity, one that was inherently superior both intellectually and morally, and one prone to sin and debauchery (referred to as "the Children of Dionysus"). Believing the Children of Dionysus would bring about an apocalypse, Akakios preached that the resurrected (which he dubbed "the paladins") were the saviors of mankind, capable of wiping out the Children of Dionysus and the catastrophe they would cause. Akakios's followers, the Black Lamp Society, were the first to become paladins, and all modern slashers are presumably descended from them. [1]

While around for centuries, the slasher population exploded in the 1980s for unknown reasons, drawing the attention of the government, who came to call these beings "revenants" and began studying them, and those with the potential to become them.
