* {{Foil}}: To Selene. They're both Death Dealers who [[spoiler:fall in love with Lycans and ultimately betray their covens]]. However, whilst Selene only turned on Viktor after he betrayed her first and flees with Michael, Alexia [[spoiler:actively helps the Lycans to invade the coven and doesn't seem to care that her former comrades are probably going to be slaughtered]], making her far less sympathetic.

* {{Foil}}: To Selene. Selene (and by extension, to Sonja). They're both all Death Dealers or high-ranking vampires who [[spoiler:fall in love with Lycans and ultimately betray their covens]]. However, whilst Selene only turned on Viktor after he betrayed her first and flees with Michael, Michael and Sonja only fought her fellow vampires to protect Lucian and her unborn child, Alexia [[spoiler:actively helps the Lycans to invade the coven and doesn't seem to care that her former comrades are probably going to be slaughtered]], making her far less sympathetic.

* NiceGuy: The GenderFlip version. Easily one of the nicest characters in the series. Unless, of course, [[BewareTheNiceOnes you're threatening her coven...]]

* AndAllTheOtherReindeer: After killing Viktor and fell in love with a werewolf, every vampire has come after her or (in Thomas' case) shun her.



* BerserkButton:
** Bringing up how her family was killed by Viktor, which Marcus made the mistake of.
** Any harm come to her daughter (see Mama Bear).



* MundaneMacGuffinPerson: Her family was targeted by Viktor out of fear the Lycans will learn the location of William's prison, since her father will involved in the construction. But Viktor spared her because she reminded him of his daughter.



-->'''Marcus:''' I knew Viktor made a mistake by keeping you as a pet. He should have killed you with the rest of your family.



* ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem: He himself helped make the law that vampires can't feed on humans, but he [[Hypocrite himself regularly broke the law and gorged on human blood]], Selene's human family being among his victims.

* DaywalkingVampire: [[spoiler:Becomes this in ''Evolution'' by drinking Alexander Corvinus' blood, and thus becoming a Corvinus-Vampire Hybrid.]]



* FlashStep: Develops her speed to this level in ''Blood Wars'' [[spoiler:by taking on the process used by the Nordic Coven]].



* [[ImmortalHero Immortal Heroine]]: As a vampire she can be killed, until she drinks Alexander Corvinus's blood and becomes a proper immortal.
* {{Invincible Hero}}ine: She almost never takes any real damage when compared to other characters, up to and including ''Michael'' who is supposed to be the ultimate fusion of the two species and was briefly killed before resurrecting, and ''Alexander Corvinus'', from whom she gets upgraded to the point that Michael's hybrid state may as well have been a child's toy compared to Selene's power being equivalent to creating Superman in a lab. She's virtually unstoppable to begin with just in the first film. It just snowballs on from there as she's pretty much a God by the time of the fourth film.
** Averted ''big time'' in the latest film. She gets [[CurbStompBattle curb-stomped]] by Marius and [[spoiler: nearly dies]].

* MeaningfulName: Selene means "moon".
* NotSoStoic: Usually when it involves someone she cares about. In the first film, she tears up when Viktor [[spoiler: accuses her of treason]] and when he [[spoiler: admits that he killed her family]], and gets choked up when talking about her family's murder.

This is taken further in ''Blood Wars'', where, due to her MidSeasonUpgrade [[spoiler:by being cocooned by the Nordic Coven]], she develops a FlashStep.



The BigBad of the series. Viktor is one of the [[PowerTrio three Vampire Elders]], and the foster father of Selene. Having FantasticRacism against Lycans, Viktor went to great lengths to either control or kill them including killing his own daughter Sonja when she became impregnated with a vampire/Lycan hybrid.

[[folder:Eve (Subject 2)]]
!!Eve (Subject 2)

A young HybridMonster who Selene finds after awakening 12 years after the purge of vampires and Lycans.

* CreepyChild: When in her hybrid form. Not to mention the first kill she does involves ripping a Lycan in two.
%%* CuteBruiser
* GeneticMemory: Can see through the eyes of her parents, and they can do the same in return.
%%* HybridMonster
* IllGirl: She spent her whole life in a lab and has never drank blood before.
* LivingMacGuffin: In ''Awakening'', the Lycans plan to extract her genetic code to make Lycan clones. In ''Blood Wars'', they're still after her, albeit for seemingly slightly different reasons.
* UnskilledButStrong: Can rip a transformed Lycan apart with her bare hands but obviously has never been in a real fight. [[spoiler:Like father, like daughter.]]

* EnigmaticEmpoweringEntity: Played with.

Selene herself gives Lena [[spoiler: her blood, thus turning her into a Hybrid, in return for her help]].
