The main protagonist of the series. Selene is a vampire and one of the best Death Dealers in the FurAgainstFang war, believing that her family were slaughtered by werewolves. She was turned by Viktor because she reminded him of his deceased daughter Sonja. She is a skilled marksman and fighter, making her probably the most prominent badass in the series.

She has a change of heart when she falls in love with human turned werewolf Michael Corvin, and is responsible for turning Michael into a HybridMonster. She finds out that Viktor killed her family, and she kills him by slicing his head in two. In ''Evolution'', she learns her family built William's tomb, hence why Viktor killed them, and becomes a true immortal after drinking Alexander Corvinus's blood, and kills Marcus.

* AwesomeMomentOfCrowning: [[spoiler: At the end of ''Blood Wars'', she is made a part of the new Elder Triumvirate, alongside David and Lena. It doesn't involve any crowns (the designation is by drinking blood), but since Elders are the equivalent of vampire royalty, it's basically this.]]



* DefectingForLove: First she is a merciless werewolf killer, but then becomes a heroic badass and girlfriend to a werewolf.

* EarnYourHappyEnding: [[spoiler: At the end of ''Blood Wars'', which is by far the most optimistic of all the films. While she does lose Michael for good, she gains many new allies and new respect from the vampires now that she is an Elder, plus, the last seconds of the film reveal that she reunites with Eve to possibly live with her permanently, as the lycans have ceased their hostility, at least for a while.]]



* HeroWithBadPublicity: At least as far as the vampires are concerned; she's renowned as one of finest, if not the finest, Death Dealers ever for 600+ years of defending the Coven and destroying Lycans without relent. Then she falls in love with Michael, a human-turned-lycan, and kills Viktor and Markus, two out of the three reigning Elders, and not only is she now shunned by her own kind, they also want her dead.

[[spoiler: She finally manages to regain their respect at the end of ''Blood Wars''.]]



* RagsToRiches: [[spoiler: Actually, it's from Riches, to Rags, then back to Riches. She goes from being a respected Death Dealer, to a vampire fugitive, then is crowned one of the new Elders. Of course, she lampshades this.]]



A descendant of Alexander Corvinus, Michael is an ordinary nurse until he becomes the target for the Lycans to create the first vampire/lycan hybrid. He is turned into a werewolf by Lucian and later is bitten by Selene to heal him from gunshot wounds. He is turned into a hybrid, becoming one of the series' many badasses. He becomes Selene's boyfriend and currently one of two people to still be alive in the series, the other being Selene.

* BodyHorror: Michael's transformation into a hybrid looks quite painful, especially since he seems to switch between werewolf and vampire several times before his body finally gets the balance right.

* DarkAndTroubledPast: The car accident and his inability to save his wife, which convinced him to enter medical school.



* DroppedABridgeOnHim: [[spoiler: Selene learns after drinking Marius' blood that the latter has murdered Michael by exsanguination sometime between ''Awakening'' and ''Blood Wars''.]]



* LegoGenetics: Michael is the only descendant of Alexander Corvinus who has the same blood type as his, allowing Lucian and Selene to turn him into a vampire/werewolf hybrid.

* MrFanservice: A nice and helpful PrettyBoy who gets tortured multiple times, has a DarkAndTroubledPast, and who gets to show his ripped body every time he transforms? Yeah, Selene is lucky.



* WalkingShirtlessScene: Basically whenever he turns into his lycan and later hybrid forms, as he rips his shirts to do that ([[MagicPants but not his pants]]). It's particularly notable in ''Evolution'', where he spends 90% of his screen time shirtless.



* WellIntentionedExtremist: Lucian has killed generations of Alexander's descendants to find one whose blood can mix both werewolf and vampire blood, in order to avenge his dead lover and unborn child. Also, it must be stressed, to prevent the vampires from ''wiping out his species''.

* SuperStrength: As an Elder Vampire, he's a fair bit stronger than regular vampires and werewolves, as shown when he does a NeckLift on a transformed werewolf, which leads into a NeckSnap. He can even match the hybridized Michael Corvin, though Corvin is a lot faster.

* EvilUncle: To Michael several generations removed, since one of the latter's ancestors was his brother. Specifically, [[spoiler: he kills him, at least temporarily.]]



* TheOtherDarrin: Played by Jazmin Dammak in the first film and Rhona Mitra in the prequel film. Particularly noticeable, given that Dammak's portrayal depicts her with blonde hair and green eyes, whilst Mitra's portrayal depicts her as a brunette with brown eyes (to more closely resemble Selene). According to WordOfGod, her appearance in the prequel is the canon one.

* SpiritedYoungLady: Played with. The 'young' part is a bit misleading, given that she's supposed to be [[ReallySevenHundred nearly 200 years old]] during ''Rise of the Lycans.''

* OpportunisticBastard: Kraven has no loyalty to anyone or anything but his own [[AmbitionIsEvil ambition]]. When spared from death by his own [[DirtyCoward cowardice]] at the hands of the Lycan werewolves' leader Lucien, Kraven aligns himself with Lucien's plans to seize power for himself in the vampire covens. Kraven seizes on a chance to allow Lucien's Lycans to massacre the vampire elder Amelia, and when his treachery is exposed, he later betrays and murders Lucien before taking advantage of the resulting power vacuum from the large scale battle at the conclusion of the second film to attempt to murder the final sleeping vampire elder and rule the coven. Lacking his own plans, Kraven simply ingratiates himself to whoever is in power for his own success and has no compunction taking any chance fate gives him in pursuit of it.

* PutOnABus: After ''Awakening'', Selene sends her away (or she goes away herself) to protect her from being hunted by the lycans. That said, her absence is noted multiple times throughout ''Blood Wars''; in fact, one of the lycans' goals is to extract information from Selene about Eve's whereabouts. [[spoiler: She makes a cameo appearance at the end of ''Blood Wars'', though with a body double.]]

* KickingAssInAllHerFinery / MsFanservice: When the Lycans attack her coven, she doesn't bother suiting up from the skimpy tunic/loincloft she's wearing; she just grabs a sword and shield and starts killing werewolves.

* BlackBestFriend: To Lucian in ''Rise of the Lycans''; by the modern day in ''Underworld'', their relationship is more alpha male and beta male.
* BlackDudeDiesFirst: Averted. He dies about the same time as Kahn, which is in the final act of ''Underworld'' and outlives every other named lycan except for Lucian (who wasn't that far behind him).


Added DiffLines:

* BlackDudeDiesFirst: Oh so averted. In fact, not only does he ''not'' die, he gets props for being the first and only non-infected human character to do so in this series.
