In the Chronicles of Darkness , the United States Federal Government gives tacit acknowledgement to the supernatural with the classification of a killer as a " Slasher ". According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, a serial killer is a person who kills three or more people, commonly identified by a common modus operandi.
Often, serial killers give themselves a "cool down" between murders, often for psychological satisfaction. Ted Bundy is a famous example of a "typical" serial killer. Spree killers kill over a larger area than a serial killer, going through two separate stages in their murders.
Guided kills occur when the killer is starting out, in a "comfort zone" where they can plan their killings. Mostly, the killer deviates, moving outside their comfort zone into the "random" phase, killing quickly and often indiscriminately.
