* StrongAndSkilled: Viktor is a Vampire Elder, making him stronger than a normal vampire, as shown when he effortlessly lifts a fully transformed [[OurWerewolvesAreDifferent Lycan]] up by the throat and then snaps its neck, all with one hand. He's also a warlord with centuries of combat experience, best shown when he faces off against the newly [[HybridPower hybridized]] Michael Corvin; while Michael is stronger and faster, Viktor's superior fighting skills soon allow him to turn the tide.



* WeakButSkilled: In comparison to the [[HybridMonster hybridized]] Michael Corvin. While Michael clearly outmatches Viktor in sheer strength and initially has the upper hand, Viktor, having 600+ years of combat experience under his belt, eventually manages to turn the tide, with Michael only being saved by Selene making a ConvenientlyTimedAttackFromBehind. Even then, he ''is'' remarkably strong by vampire standards, being shown to have the strength to outmuscle a transformed lycan with little effort.

* CoolSword: She wields a rather nice sword that launch silver shruikans from the hilt.



* DarkIsNotEvil: Frequently wears black or dark colours, but is far from evil. In fact, she's one of the ''nicest'' characters in the franchise.



* DefectingForLove: She helped free the Lycan slaves and was planning on leaving her coven to join them, because of her relationship with Lucian, though this never came to pass due to Viktor discovering what she'd done first.



* EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette / RavenHairIvorySkin: Being a vampire probably helps in this department.



* MementoMacGuffin: Her pendant. Viktor gave it to her as a child, with her apparently viewing it as a mere token of his affections (according to the novelization, she was under the impression it had belonged to her late mother) unaware it's actually one of the keys to William's tomb. Lucian himself takes her pendant to [[TragicKeepsake remind himself of her after her death]].



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

to:

* SecretRelationship: With Lucian. It's implied they've kept it a secret for quite some time. Inevitably, it comes out eventually and Viktor is ''not'' happy.
* SpiritedYoungLady: Played with. The 'young' part is a bit misleading, given that she's supposed to be [[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld nearly 200 years old]] during ''Rise of the Lycans''. But she's a headstrong and independent noblewoman who would rathet be out fighting werewolves than sitting in on council meetings.


Added DiffLines:

* TokenGoodTeammate: To the vampires in the prequel, being the only one who sympathises with the Lycans, views them as people and tries to help them.
* WhiteShirtOfDeath: When she's executed she's wearing a white shift.
