Crucifixes were one of a Vampire's several weaknesses and possessed two non-fatal effects to them. The very sight of a crucifix was capable of fending off a vampire and the second could cause a vampire plainful burns through contact. Even though crucifixes were ineffective to the Turok-han, they also worked on Ethros demons.
Despite the fact that the term 'crucifix' refers to a cross with the image of Jesus Christ, any plain cross of any material was was still capable of harming vampires without the original purpose as an object of worship.
