    relative clauses - god - vampires

    Hello,


    I have a question about relative clauses because I could't find out the answer.
    Do we have to use 'which or who' when constructing a relative clause included in it ''God, gods, vampires, witches,...etc'' ?


    In France, Allen is a god who can do no wrong.

    A vampire is a monster, who looks, acts, and talks like a man.

    You play as Alicia Claus, a beautiful witch who is as powerful with her magic spells as she is deft with a trigger finger.

    Thanks.

    Re: relative clauses - god - vampires

    Most of us don't spend a lot of time writing about gods, witches and vampires, so there are not too many firm rules.

    If I felt the urge to write about these things, I would write:

    In France, Allen is a god who can do no wrong.
    A vampire is a monster, who/which looks, acts, and talks like a man.
    You play as Alicia Claus, a beautiful witch who is as powerful with her magic spells as she is deft with a trigger finger.[/QUOTE]5
