Holy water was water which had been sanctified by a priest or bishop for the purpose of baptism, the blessing of persons, places, and objects; or as a means of "repelling evil".

For vampires, it worked as a very effective repellent as contact would cause visible, acid-like burns on vampire's skin and if ingested, was capable of dusting a vampire from within their body. Unlike crosses, holy water was also able to cause minor burns to a Turok-Han.
