!!Hellsing Organization
The Hellsing Organization, formally known as the ''Royal Order of Protestant Knights'', was an organization founded by Dr. Abraham Van Helsing shortly after defeating Count Dracula in order to combat the increasing vampire threat against the country, monarchy, and church. Unlike the Vatican, the Hellsing Organization uses any means necessary to combat evil and Satanic threats -- often employing those very threats to do so, such as Alucard and Seras.

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/JojiNakata (JP), Creator/CrispinFreeman (EN)

-->''"We ruin the countries we govern and the people in our care. We slaughter our enemies and sacrifice all our allies. We'll keep killing until there is nothing left but to destroy ourselves. It will never be enough. We are incorrigible warmongers, aren't we, Major?"''

Extremely powerful, to the point where he qualifies as "nature" in terms of man vs. x {{conflict}}s, Alucard is a vampire who is well over 400 years old. He acknowledges Integra Hellsing, a woman who is one of the last living members of the Hellsing family, as his Master. He spent twenty years sealed in the depths of the Hellsing manor by Integra's father, until a young Integra discovers his "corpse" when she was fleeing from her wicked uncle. Integra is shot in the shoulder, and her blood just so happens to fly into Alucard's mouth, which awakened him. As a way of showing his thanks, he helps Integra kill her pursuers, and from then on, grants her his services and protection. He is highly skilled in firearms and his vast powers are divided into seals with increasing levels of power (with Level 0 being the strongest to 5 being the "weakest"). His servant is Seras "Police Girl" Victoria.

[[spoiler:His true identity is that of the infamous Count Vlad Dracula, as well as the historic figure Prince Vlad III Tepes of Wallachia or "Vlad the Impaler"]].

----
* AdaptationalAttractiveness: [[spoiler:The real-life Vlad III Tepes was an ugly, UGLY man. In here, not so much -- he's downright ''swagger''.]]
** Justified. See AFormYouAreComfortableWith.
* AffablyEvil
* AFormYouAreComfortableWith: Due to the thousands of souls inside him causing a lack of a definite gender, he can change his appearance at will. To quote the man himself, "Form means nothing to me."
* {{Alucard}}: [[CaptainObvious No shit]].
* AnimalisticAbomination: Alucard's summoned HellHound, the Baskerville, also known as the Black Dog.
* AntiHero: The best thing that can be said about [[VillainProtagonist him]].
** NominalHero: Only works for the good guys because Integra orders him to.
** NinetiesAntiHero: A card-carrying example. He has a cool-sounding name, ridiculously over-sized pistols, has the hipster type appearance, and doesn't care about hurting people who get in his way.
* ArchEnemy: To Alexander Anderson.
* [[spoiler: ArmyOfTheDead: Contains an armada of undeads formed from every single person he ever killed (read: well over '''three million''') inside his body.]]
* AxCrazy: Sadistic, bloodthirsty, clearly off his rocker, and nearly godlike in power.
* [[spoiler: BackForTheFinale]]
* {{Badass}}: [[UpToEleven Sweet mother of all that is holy and sacred]]...
** BadassBeard: [[spoiler:When he's transformed into his true form, Dracula]].
** BadassInANiceSuit
** BadassLongcoat: A [[BringMyRedJacket red one]], adding to the gore by allowing many regenerations of his limbs. Though not the only one; the villainous equivalent is the Captain.
** BadassMustache: [[spoiler:When Alucard releases all the restraints, he actually looks somewhat like Vlad Tepes, including the mustache. Not quite as impressive as the one in the famous portrait of him, but it would be difficult to take him seriously with that thing.]]
** LittleMissBadass: [[{{FanNickname}} Girlycard]]. While WordOfGod (and canon) says that form is ''female'', Girlycard still has a male voice in the OVA.
** SealedBadassInACan: Is this in "Master of Monster". There's a magic seal on the door to the room he's being kept in (much like the seals on his gloves, that keep his powers in check). When Integra opens the door, she breaks the seal.
** SubmissiveBadass: To Integra.
* BeastAndBeauty: Along with his [[LadyAndKnight Knight/Lady]] dynamic with Integra, there are definitely shades of this.
* BerserkButton: His [[AffablyEvil usual attitude]] makes them hard to find, but when one is pressed, you ''will'' know:
** People who believe that it's BetterToDieThanBeKilled, especially when someone does it to escape his wrath.
** Never, ''Never'', '''NEVER''' insult, threaten, or harm Integra whenever he's nearby. It ''[[TooDumbToLive will]]'' [[TooDumbToLive be the last thing you do.]]
** Alucard may pick on and ridicule Seras from time to time, but he does ''not'' appreciate seeing her come to unnecessary harm, either.
** Traitors. He will make you ''suffer'' before killing you if you betray him.
** And the biggest example of them all: throwing away your humanity. After his defeat at the hands of Dr. Hellsing, Alucard earnestly believes a person's humanity and ingenuity to be his greatest strength. When [[spoiler:Anderson]] uses [[DeadlyUpgrade Helena's Nail]] in their final battle, Alucard is not only ''furious'', he's '''brought to tears''' at the end.
* BetterToDieThanBeKilled: Averted, Alucard is very much ''not'' of this opinion.
* {{BFS}}: Wields an impressively huge claymore sword [[spoiler:in his true form as Dracula.]] It doesn't last long though, as he [[GunsAkimbo really likes guns]].
* BlackMagic: Would the Devil himself use anything else?
* BloodKnight: He just LOVES to fight all kind of enemies. The harder it is, the more fun it'll be. Alucard looks positively ''ecstatic'' every time Anderson shows up, and ripping apart enemies always puts him a good mood.
-->'''Alucard''': Neither of us could ever back down in front of an enemy. Come on then, Judas Priest!
* BloodLust: Oh '''''yes'''''. He would bathe in the stuff if he could.
* BloodyMurder: Alucard practically puts his blood through gymnastics using it as a weapon
** BloodMagic
* BodyguardCrush
* BottomlessMagazines: He won't reload until all the surrounding enemies are dead.
** When Crispin Freeman makes note of this in the commentary, Taliesin Jaffe calls them "Schrödinger's Magazine", in that they're always full until you look inside them.
* BreakTheCutie: When he was just a little kid, he was sold out by his father, Dracul the prince of Wallachia, to the Turks, who did all sorts of ghastly things to him. No wonder he decided to become what he is today.
* BrokenAce
* CardCarryingVillain: Straight up admits that he is the worst of all vampires, which is saying something.
* TheChampion: to Integra. He might be a [[SociopathicHero complete sociopath]], but he definitely has UndyingLoyalty towards Integra.
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: Chapter 1 is most affected by this.
* CombatPragmatist: Sort of. He doesn't need guns, but he likes using them, and if he feels you're a worthy opponent, he'll still fight dirty.
* CombatSadomasochist: He seems to enjoy being harmed. He has a habit of allowing his opponent to rip him to bloody pieces, only to [[GoodThingYouCanHeal regenerate from stuff]] that {{Wolverine}} wouldn't bounce back from before subjecting his opponent to a fast but drawn out, agonizing death that involves lots of dismemberment and impaling.
* CoolShip: His ghost ship, the ''Eagle/Adler''.
* CrazyConsumption: Out of all the vampires' in this series, Alucard ''really'' takes the cake with this one. So long as Integra orders him to kill, he'll do whatever he damn well pleases to his victims. Including tearing off their heads and letting the blood pour into his mouth. And using demon dogs to ''eat them alive''. Honestly, this guy acts more like a ''[[ImAHumanitarian cannibal]]'' than a vampire.
* CreepyGood
* ColourCodedForYourConvenience: Red.
* CynicalMentor: He's not the best father figure towards Seras. Most of the time, he's rather insulting and mean towards her, but he does give her advice and training that has helped her many times before.
** ToughLove: Make no mistake though, he ''does'' care about her.
* DarkAndTroubledPast
* DarkIsEvil: His shadows give this vibe.
** RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver
* DeathSeeker: One of his possible motivations.
** Averted, after the fight with Anderson, Alucard made it clear he wasn't in a rush to die ''yet''. Or at least not until another human of Anderson's caliber came along to challenge him again.
* DidNotGetTheGirl: [[spoiler: Mina Harker.]]
* [[spoiler:{{Dracula}}: You surprised?]]
* [[spoiler:DiscardAndDraw: Thanks to Schrödinger nearly erasing him from existence and leaving him in limbo for '''three decades''', Alucard had to dispose of the millions of potential familiars he had until only Schrödinger was left. He likely can't contain and release entire armies of undead anymore, but on the other hand he now has Schrödinger's power of NegativeContinuity, which quite possibly [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone makes Alucard even more overpowered than before]].]]
* DreamSequence: Has a pretty trippy one following the events aboard the carrier ''Eagle/Adler''. On top of demonstrating that Alucard appears to have a fondness for war movies (and certain actors like ChristopherWalken and Tom Berenger), it also serves as an important first point of foreshadowing regarding [[spoiler:Walter's treachery]].
* DroppedABridgeOnHim: In the form of Schrödinger. Okay, so maybe it was more 'dropped mathematics and technobabble on him'.
* EarnYourHappyEnding: After essentially being sent to purgatory by Schrödinger, Alucard seeks out and kills his millions of lives [[spoiler: (except Schrödinger's)]], finally putting them out of their misery and earning his life back.
** He also comes from a [[FailureIsTheOnlyOption past filled with Downer Endings no matter what. The series and other characters love to list what he lost after the decisive battles.]]
* EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette: Heavy emphasis on ''eerie''.
* EldritchAbomination: His other unnatural forms. He's even called an abomination on several occasions.
** HumanoidAbomination: What he is when he isn't fighting hard yet.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: He tells a pair of teenage vampires that the way they kill innocent people for no reason just shows how pathetic and disgusting they actually are, and that's the reason why they should be wasted.
* EvilLaugh: Anytime Alucard is entertained, or is impressed with the antics of the Major, that great fanged maw opens up with peals of maniacal laughter.
* EvilSoundsDeep: Look who his seiyuu is...
* ExtraEyes: Alucard develops tons of these during transformations.
* EyesDoNotBelongThere: See above.
** [[spoiler:Alucard's form as Vlad Dracula III goes by either "Vladcard" or "Beardycard".]]
* [[spoiler:FromASingleCell]]: And this is the main reason why he's so damned hard to kill or even remotely injure. If even the tiniest bit of Alucard is left behind, he'll be able to regenerate and come back just as strong and vengeful as before.
* TheFettered: Though not unhappily.
* FreudianTrio: Alucard is TheId among Integra and Seras.
* GlassCannon: He gets blown to bits worse than [[Film/TheGodfather Sonny Corleone]], and actually often seems to be the most frail character in the series given that a bullet once took his arm off, but it doesn't matter since he just regenerates from it.
** [[spoiler: His true form is also an example -- since all of the souls he's fed upon are now independent of his body, he's just as vulnerable to a stake through the heart as any other vampire.]]
* GoodThingYouCanHeal: If Alucard wasn't a true vampire and ''really'' fast regenerator, he'd be a pile of cells on the ground with how many times he's been blown to bits.
* GunsAkimbo: His hand cannons.
* HairContrastDuo: With Integra, Seras, and [[AntiVillain Anderson]].
* HandCannon: Two, in fact.
* HappinessInSlavery: Although not a slave, Alucard's more than happy to serve his Master.
* HealingFactor: One of the most extreme examples.
* TheHero: Only because he works for Integra. Otherwise, he's lacking in any heroic traits.
** InvincibleHero: He is so overpowered that early in the series he becomes excited when he believes he is going to fight an equal. Only Father Anderson can bring him fun and Alucard absolutely ''relishes'' every time the priest turns up for a fight.
** SociopathicHero: Was a bloodthirsty monster before he became a vampire. The vampire thing just made him worse.
* HeelFaceTurn: Well, Alucard certainly seems to like life as a good guy. Of course, that's probably because he still gets to kill as many vampires and other monsters as he wants, considering it's the Hellsing Organization's eternal mission.
* HeroKiller: Sort of an inverse, no amount of plot armor protect from him no matter what side your own.
** [[TokenEvilTeammate Luckily, he's on the good guys' side.]]
* HeyYou: At first, he purposely refused to call his apprentice by her name Seras Victoria, resorting instead to the sneering alias "Police Girl", which shows his disdain for her reluctance to drink blood and embrace her vampire nature in full extent. Thankfully, he gets a lot better by the series' end, either calling Seras by her name or using "Police Girl" as an affectionate nickname.
* HistoricalBeautyUpdate: Vlad the Impaler was ''not'' a pretty man in RealLife. His alternate forms are understandable since Alucard can assume whatever appearance he wants, but as the true Vlad Tepes? Well, he's certainly gotten an aesthetical upgrade, that's for sure.
* HistoricalVillainUpgrade: Ladies and gentlemen, we present [[spoiler: Vlad "Dracula" Tepes III]].
* HumanoidAbomination: Alucard looks like just an "ordinary" vampire. It turns out he's actually something far, far more horrific, being at the very least a Hive Mind of millions of undead souls, all slaved to a single once-human mind. He freely shifts through the most horrific forms at will, with his "true form" being essentially a city-swallowing ocean of blood with wailing human and animal corpses rising half-formed from its depths and potentially becoming an independent army. In the finale, [[spoiler: he goes even further, killing off his undead army to become a walking, talking quantum anomaly]].
* HumansAreSpecial: He believes this with '''all''' his being. While sometimes he would sneer at humans, for Alucard they are the pinnacle of the creation of God and those worthy to inherit Earth, to the point that he ''refuses'' to die except at the hands of a human. [[spoiler: It's the reason why he breaks down in tears when Anderson transforms himself with the Nail]].
* HunterOfHisOwnKind: In the most brutal way possible. He seems to hate most other vampires nowadays, [[EvenEvilHasStandards especially those who kill]] ForTheEvulz. Overall, in Alucard's personal opinion, only true vampires like Seras and himself deserve to exist.
* IAmAMonster: Which he will gleefully tell you. [[spoiler: Though it turns out that Alucard plays this trope straight. As powerful as he is, he deeply regrets his choice to become a monster and holds a great deal of respect for those who choose to remain human in such a dangerous world. Anderson's use of Helena's Nail, and then his death after reverting back to an ordinary human, actually drives Alucard to hysterical tears.]]
-->'''Alucard''': YOU ARE ME!! You are me... It's exactly the same fate I befell... It's the same pathetic story as mine!
* IHateYouVampireDad: Alucard receives this treatment from Seras sometimes and he doesn't improve this status until much later in the series either, mostly because he has a {{jerkass}} attitude and enjoys mocking and scaring her. It isn't until Seras begins to embrace her vampire self (while also retaining the best aspects of her human side) that master and apprentice come to truly appreciate and respect each other.
* ImmuneToBullets: His usual ''tactic'' is to let his opponents perforate him utterly... and then regenerate and get right back up again. Interestingly, without taking his regenerative abilities into account, he seems to be more susceptible to them than any other vampire.
* ImprobableAimingSkills: He can gun down multiple enemies without even ''looking'' at them.
* InLoveWithYourCarnage[=/=]InterplayOfSexAndViolence: With Integra.
* InSeriesNickname: Hellsing's dog/lapdog usually. Anderson used "the black plague" on him once. Demon or devil seem to be popular ones, too.
* InsultBackfire:
-->'''SWAT team member''': Monster!
-->'''Alucard''': I get that a lot.
* InsultOfEndearment: "Police Girl" for Victoria, at first mocking, and later with respect and affection.
* InvincibleHero: Zigzagged, which is a surprise given the character. [[spoiler:Alucard has a ''massive'' number of lives ([[FromASingleCell read: everyone who he's killed and drained the blood from]]) to stave off death. When these lives are all currently released as familiars however, he's as vulnerable as any other vampire. Then it finally gets played straight when he isolates Schrödinger's life within him in the ending, though he ''really'' had to work for this.]]
* ItAmusedMe: Why does Alucard turn himself into [[BadassAdorable a little girl]] in his fight against [[spoiler:Walter]]? Giggles mostly, and [[IShallTauntYou irritation]].
* {{Jerkass}}: He's not the friendliest or most empathetic guy, to say the least.
** JerkassFacade: Despite his uncaring and arrogant behavior, Alucard does genuinely care for some of the people around him, most especially Integra and Seras. He also holds a great deal of respect for people who ''choose'' to remain human like Van Hellsing and Anderson, and the senseless slaughter of innocents is one of the main reasons why he despises almost all other vampires.
* TheJuggernaut: He gets ripped to shreds by machine gun fire because it's fun. Just about ''nothing'' his enemies throw at him even slow him down.
* KickTheDog: "Oh, hello there, Police Girl. It appears your entire team was just turned into ghouls right before your very eyes, and now there is a priest who is molesting you and about to rape you. Can I ask you a personal question? Are you a virgin, my dear? WELL!? You are? ''[[OverlyLongGag Wonderful!]]'' [[OverlyLongGag Allow me to]] ''[[OverlyLongGag shoot you through the lung]]'' [[OverlyLongGag even though there are plenty of other ways I can kill the freak behind you.]]"
* KnightInShiningArmor: DoubleSubversion. Integra expected one to save her and got a vampire...who acted as one to her, regardless.
* KnightTemplar: He used to be one of these.
* LadyAndKnight: A pretty dark Knight, but he and Integra definitely have this dynamic.
* LargeHam: One of the hammiest vampires to ever ham.
* LennonSpecs: Wears a pair of these. They repeatedly get broken or crushed, mostly by Anderson, but he keeps acquiring new pairs from somewhere.
* MadeOfExplodium: The bullets for the Jackal do a wee bit more than pierce through any armor, to say the least. Lampshaded by Luke Valentine even:
-->''(After one of Alucard's shots misses him, the entire hallway behind Luke gets blown up) "A pistol...did '''that'''!? ...Jesus."''
* MadeOfPlasticine
* ManlyTears: Two instances. The first instance are TearsOfBlood when he is dreaming of the day Abraham defeated him. The second instance follows [[spoiler:Anderson's death after he used Helena's Nail. Alucard ''truly'' believed with all his being that Anderson was capable of beating him as a human. By turning himself into a monster, Alucard was essentially ''heartbroken'' that he threw away what he believed made him strong, even if he understand the honorable reasons behind Anderson's choice.]]
* MookHorrorShow: Heaven and Hell help you if you have to fight him.
* MoreDakka: Both in regards to taking down himself or his enemies. Blowing Alucard to pieces is how most people attempt to defeat him, although it never works out how they planned, since he's a regenerator and all. On the other hand, Alucard just likes to shoot things full of holes ForTheEvulz.
* MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily: His smiles would do an [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anglerfish Anglerfish]] proud.
* MrFanservice
* MultiArmedAndDangerous: Alucard sprouts extra pairs during his battle with Rip van Winkle.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: ''[[{{Dracula}} Alu]][[{{Alucard}} card]]...''
* NiceHat
* NighInvulnerable: He has extraordinary regenerative powers, being able to build himself back up from a pool of blood.
* NightmareFace
* NightmareFuelStationAttendant
* NobleDemon: He kinda counts. In a fashion. Or at least when he's under Integra's direct influence. Just like Anderson, he's completely disgusted by Maxwell slaughtering millions of innocent civilians in London and there's a few other points in the series where he expresses disdain for artificial vampires who kill innocents to satisfy their own DrunkWithPower egos or psychotic pleasures. Alucard usually mocks, tortures, and kills them in short order after that.
* NotSoDifferent: Alucard admits he and the Major are alike in Volume 4 as incorrigible warmongers. [[spoiler:But unlike the Major, Alucard shows genuine remorse and tears up when he recalls what he lost in past battles]]. His comparison with [[spoiler:Anderson]] in Volume 9 is far more accurate.
* NowThatsUsingYourTeeth: How he stops one of Rip Van's bullets. It appears to have broken his jaw. Don't worry though, [[CaptainObvious he gets better]].
* OddCouple: With Integra, but whether it's romantic or not is [[{{Shipping}} debatable]].
* OddFriendship: With Walter, most predominately in ''The Dawn''.
** Seems to have something of a strange relationship with the Queen as well, as they are both quite fond of each other. Most likely has something to do with the fact that she has known him longer than anyone still living.
* TheOlderImmortal
* OneHeadTaller: With Integra. Whether or not this is supposed to have romantic undertones is a {{Shipping}} issue.
** Even more obvious in Alucard and Seras's case, even though it's used to depict their father-daughter, mentor-student connection.
*** Seras reaches Alucard ''far'' below the shoulder.
* OneManArmy: [[spoiler:Level 0 form. Every soul he has consumed, including Rip Van Winkle and the Dandyman, come out from his body to fight. By the events of the OVA, he has thousands to millions of souls. Do the math.]]
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: Alucard is not only sincere, but ''pleading'' when urging [[spoiler:Anderson not to use Helena's Nail to become a monster]]. When ''Alucard'' is the one acting like this, you ''know'' something very, very bad is about to happen. He even '''cries tears of blood''' at the end of their fight, openly mourning the temporary loss of [[spoiler: Anderson's humanity]] and his eventual death.
* OohMeAccentsSlipping: [[spoiler: In his true form, he has a stereotypical vampire accent.]]
* OralFixation: It goes without saying really, considering the whole vampire thing...
* ParentalSubstitute: Seems to be this for Seras, along with Integra. It starts out ''very'' rocky, but they become more respectful and affectionate with each other as the series progresses. Seras is even gifted with one of Alucard's only genuine, non-slasher smiles after Millennium's defeat and her finally embracing the better aspects of her vampire nature.
* PhysicalGod: Or at least very close to one in terms of power. See SuperpowerLottery bellow.
* PowerLimiter: Alucard's monstrous powers are kept in check by a series of four magical gates, called the Control Art Restriction System. Alucard has some access to these via the "Cromwell Approval", but Integra herself must authorize their level of use for the most part. In the manga, and therefore in ''Anime/HellsingUltimate'', Alucard is allowed to use any power he has access to at his current restriction level, but only has access to a subset of his powers unless all restrictions are released, and he cannot release any further restrictions without Integra's express permission. How it works in the anime is anyone's guess.
* PowerMakesYourHairGrow: The more powerful he becomes, the longer his hair grows out.
* PrehensileHair: Although it's kinda difficult to tell where the guy's hair ends and where his shadow tendril things begin. But he definitely has more prehensile body parts than any creature has the right to have.
* PsychoForHire: Sort of. He has all of the mannerisms and motives necessary for this trope, but he only works for one person.
* PsychopathicManchild: Type C. Though he's usually composed and a perfect gentleman, he turns into a giggling lunatic in battle.
* PsychoticSmirk: Default expression.
* PunchPunchPunchUhOh: He likes to let opponents literally rip him to pieces, apparently just to see the look on their faces when the pieces [[EldritchAbomination melt]] [[FromASingleCell back together]].
* [[spoiler:RapeAsBackstory]]: Heavily implied.
** Confirmed by WordOfGod in the manga (Volume 8) where Hirano states that Alucard was [[spoiler:"raped by an Arab" as a child.]]
* RedEyesTakeWarning: [[BluntYes Yep]].
* RedOniBlueOni: Red to Integra's blue, and [[HamToHamCombat to a lesser extent]], Anderson as well.
* [[spoiler:RetiredMonster: At the end of the series. He was already one in the beginning because of his past life (Vlad the Impaler) as a mass-murdering [[TheCaligula caligula]] and he still enjoys killing.]]
* ScaryShinyGlasses: Often.
* SharpDressedMan: Oh ''yes''.
* SlasherSmile: All the damn time.
* SuperpowerLottery: Aside from the common vampire powers (Superhuman Strength, Speed, Reflexes, Immortality, [[TheVirus spreading his condition to others]]) Alucard can also [[MindOverMatter levitate]], pass through walls, manipulate shadows, [[VoluntaryShapeshifting shapeshift]], telepathically manipulate people (he needs apparently eye contact for that) and [[FromASingleCell heal from as little as ashes]].
* SpiritedCompetitor: Nothing makes him happier than fighting a WorthyOpponent. Well, except Integra. And maybe his apprentice ''finally'' acting like a true vampire.
* TallDarkAndHandsome
* TallDarkAndSnarky
* ThereIsNoKillLikeOverkill: So long as [[KidWithTheLeash Integra]] orders it, he'll do whatever he damn well pleases to his opponents. If they can't stop him, well, it sucks to be them.
* TokenEvilTeammate
* UndyingLoyalty: Not only is he fiercely dedicated to his master and country, he can't forgive traitors. Sort of BerserkButton.
* UnstoppableRage: Alucard goes completely ballistic against [[spoiler:God Monster Anderson]].
* VampiresAreSexGods
* VillainProtagonist
* VillainousBreakdown: Oh, he doesn't suffer one. He ''causes'' them.
** Until [[spoiler:Anderson's]] death. That said, it was much more of a TearJerker moment than anything, but regardless, he still ''did'' break down in tears. Hell, Alucard even gave him a ''genuine smile'' and respectful "Amen" right after he passed away.
* VoluntaryShapeshifting
* WarriorPoet
* WickedCultured: He doesn't usually show it as he presumably has no need to, but it does tend to come out during unexpected moments.
* WildHair: Especially as [[spoiler:Dracula]].
* WillTheyOrWontThey: With Integra.
* WhatHaveIBecome
* WhenHeSmiles: [[http://i45.tinypic.com/2iijwut.jpg He shows Seras]] a ''genuine'', heartwarming smile [[spoiler:after releasing his Zero Restriction]] and showing his true identity and power to her for the first time, patting her on the head as well -- almost a "parental" gesture of [[SoProudOfYou a father proud of his daughter.]] Considering his [[SlasherSmile default state]], this ''was'' a truly beautiful thing.
** His smile becomes a warm, genuine one when he meets the Queen again.
** Just as Anderson is peacefully fading away, Alucard gives one of his few non-mocking and genuine smiles in the whole series. Unlike all of the other characters Alucard has fought, Anderson was the only (living) human who could truly go toe-to-toe with him while also retaining the better aspects of his humanity. Because of this, and Anderson reverting back to and dying as a human, Alucard is genuinely saddened and respectful of his [[TheRival favorite rival's]] passing, and even whispers a little "Amen" at the end of Anderson's final prayer.
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: He may qualify as this. If you look through the [[AxCrazy axe-craziness]], he seems like quite the DeathSeeker. Then there's his DarkAndTroubledPast...
* WorthyOpponent: Humans who can face him receive his absolute respect, [[spoiler: probably born from being defeated at his mightiest by Abraham Van Helsing and restoring his faith in humanity]]. It's also the reason why he obeys Integra to death and beyond, and openly mourns Anderson's use of Helena's Nail and his eventual death. According to Alucard, only a human such as Van Hellsing or Anderson reserve the ''right'' to defeat and kill him.

[[folder: Sir Integra Fairbrook Wingates Hellsing]]
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/integra01_2859.png]]

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/YoshikoSakakibara (adult) / KaoriMizuhashi (young) (JP), Victoria Harwood (adult) / LauraBailey (young) (EN)

-->''"Don't you dare question my resolve! I have already given you your marching orders, soldier! You will search and destroy! SEARCH AND DESTROY! Any resistance you encounter is to be CRUSHED! Hellsing does not run from our enemies! KILL THEM ALL! I order you to leave nothing but bloody stains in your way!"''

The head of the Hellsing Organization and the last descendant of said bloodline; one of the knights of the Round Table also known as the Twelve Conventions that control the 'British Empire' in the shadows and protect the Anglican faith and the Crown. It is unknown how she lost her mother, but her father died when she was about twelve years of age. As her father lay on his deathbed, he told Integra that if she ever was caught in a bad situation and has no one else to turn to, she should head for the cells deep below the manor, where the family's "darkest legacy" is kept, and that it will be her greatest weapon and the "instrument of her salvation". She awakens Alucard with her blood when she was cornered by her evil uncle Richard Hellsing, but Alucard saves her life and swears his loyalty to her. Shortly after this, Integra kills Richard Hellsing and is knighted days later. She's twenty-two years old during the course of the story.

* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: DoubleSubversion. She's the weakest member of the Hellsing Organization, but still a BadassNormal LadyOfWar.
* {{Badass}}:
** BadassInANiceSuit
** BadassLongcoat
** BadassNormal: The woman can hold her own against ''Anderson.'' Yes. She has fought, and survived, against the man whom Alucard feels is his equal.
* BeastAndBeauty: Along with her [[LadyAndKnight Lady/Knight]] dynamic with Alucard, there are definitely shades of this.
* BeautyIsNeverTarnished: Played straight until [[spoiler:she loses her eye in the last chapters]], up to that point even the blood stains she got in middle of a battle vanished from her face and long hair (that remained majestically untangled during the entire ordeal).
* BerserkButton: To some degree; don't eat her men or make her servant disappear.
** To quote the latter: "WHAT DID YOU DO?!!" [[Characters/HellsingAnime sounds familiar]]?
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Young Integra is full of surprises.
* BlueBlood
* {{Bifauxnen}}: Subverted. Outside the fandom, Integra is ''never'' mistaken as male in canon nor she's trying to dress like a man or act like one. Everybody knows she's a lady and seems pretty proud of this fact. It's more a case of SamusIsAGirl when she introduces herself in the beginning. Most didn't expect Sir Hellsing to be a young woman.

* CigarChomper: How she manages to speak with a cigar in her mouth is beyond us. The TV series provides ''some'' explanation for this, because in it she smokes cigarillos, through which it's a bit easier to communicate.
* ClaspYourHandsIfYouDeceive
* ColourCodedCharacters: Blue.
* ComingOfAgeStory
* CoolBigSis: To Seras occasionally.
* DarkSkinnedBlond: A subversion of the normal traits.
* DeadpanSnarker
* DeathGlare: Integra glares a lot, but she really gives one to Major (emphasis on eyes, no mouth draw) after [[spoiler:Alucard vanishes]].
* DefrostingIceQueen: [[spoiler:Suddenly sour and bitter Integra in her fifties begins to smirk and smile again after Alucard's return with a good excuse]].
* [[spoiler:EyepatchOfPower]]
* [[spoiler:EyeScream: A milder example in the series; the Major shoots her in the eye as she moves in for the kill.]]
* FlowerMotifs: Red Roses (in her manga funeral hat and her Calendar picture).
* FreudianTrio: Integra counts as TheSuperego between Seras and [[TheId Alucard]].
* GoodIsNotNice: She has defending her country as a motive and she's horrified when her she sees people are slaughtered, but she's not exactly a nice person.
* [[spoiler:GrandmaWhatMassiveHotnessYouHave]]
* HairContrastDuo: A pretty obvious one with Alucard.
* HeroicBSOD: When [[spoiler:Walter reveals himself as a Nazi and after Alucard disappears]].
* HeyYou: Like Alucard, she usually only refers to Seras as "Police Girl" as well. Notable times exceptions after Seras went overboard and slaughtered Integra's ghoul-turned men, causing Integra to give her a CoolDownHug to calm her, when Integra "[[LesYay feeds]]" Seras, and after Seras [[spoiler:becomes a full-on vampire]].
* IceQueen: Cold, dour and dispassionate...''most'' of the time. She's seen getting angry a lot, but that's mostly from atrocities being committed against her organization and/or her country. The rest is from [[BelligerentSexualTension Alucard riling her up.]]
* IDidWhatIHadToDo
* InItsHourOfNeed: Even if seriously outnumbered, Integra stays in the destroyed London and stands her ground before reinforcement arrive. Then goes into the Zeppelin to fight the last battle.
* InLoveWithYourCarnage[=/=]InterplayOfSexAndViolence: With Alucard, it's mostly initiated by him.
* InSeriesNickname: Integra (her full name ''is'' Integral). But also several ones (''most'' of them she disliked): Miss Nemesis Face/Lady of Iron (by Seras), Babylon (by Anderson), Protestant Sow (by Maxwell), Beautiful Fräulein (by Major), Countess (by Alucard).
* IronLady
* ItsAllMyFault
* IWillWaitForYou: [[spoiler:Waits for Alucard after his disappearance. For thirty years.]]
* JustAKid: Young Integra.
* TheKidWithTheLeash: She became Alucard's master very early in life.
* KnightTemplar: Subverted. Under normal circumstances, Integra can be reasoned with and flexible in her standards. But once you attack her men, threaten her country or betray her. All bets are off.
* LadyAndKnight: She's the Lady, and Alucard is her unlikely, vampiric Knight.
* LadyOfWar
* LargeHam: "'''SEARCH AND DESTROY!!!'''"
* TheLeader
* LeaveBehindAPistol: Leaves one for [[spoiler:Sir Penwood, though [[SubvertedTrope not to use on himself]]. It was a parting gift of sorts to use on the [[TakingYouWithMe vampiric Nazis]]]].
* LetsGetDangerous: A couple times, most notably after she [[spoiler:pulls herself from a carcrash, decapitates the vampire who attacked her and mocks the rest, then tells them to [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome bring it on so she can kill them]].]]
* LoomingSilhouetteOfRage
* LovelyAngels: With Seras, in Volumes 9-10.
* LustObject of several characters
* MadeOfIron: Gets into a pretty serious car crash and is still able to decapitate a vampire like it's no one's business. Later, she [[spoiler:gets shot in the eye]] and barely even falters.
** She also got shot in the shoulder when she was twelve and it barely seemed to bother her. Afterward, she was even able to pick up a gun and shoot it.
* MeetCute: Manga only. For a tense moment, Hirano managed to paint the meeting between Alucard and Integra in an awkwardly endearing light. This overlaps with BoyMeetsGhoul.
* MercyKill: Forced to do this do her ghoulifed men after the Valentine invasion. She accepts all responsibility for their deaths.
** It's also the real motivation of why she and her father to [[DeathSeeker kill monsters]] that threaten their country. Aside of their duty to keep it safe.
* {{Meganekko}}: Played straight when she was young, subverted when she grows into an IronLady.
* MoralityChain: to Alucard, being the person he ''acknowledged'' to serve.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Any name with the word 'hell' in it is a name you should be weary of, but ''Hellsing'' is worse.
* OddCouple: With Alucard, but whether it's romantic or not is a shipping issue.
* TheOjou
* OmniscientMoralityLicense: Towards the end, she's the one who is giving the moral resolutions about monsters.
* OnlySaneMan: All things considered, Integra is the only character in this franchise who is, for the most part, a collected and ordinary being. [[BadassNormal She can still whip you a new one, though]].
** Sometimes. She still has her less sane moments. Like "SEARCH AND DESTROY".
* OralFixation: Especially in the OVA's, where she would spew entire sentences [[CigarChomper with a cigar in her mouth]].
* OverlyLongName: Sir Integra Fairbrook Wingates Hellsing. Parodied in TheAbridgedSeries.
* ParentalAbandonment
* ParentalSubstitute: Acts [[TeamMom very motherly]] towards Seras.
* PunctuatedForEmphasis: ''"SEARCH. AND. DESTROY!"''
* RapunzelHair
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure
* RedOniBlueOni: Blue to Alucard's red. Her and Maxwell seemed to have this dynamic earlier on, too.
* ScrewTheRulesIMakeThem: The Twelve Conventions lord over the country and has a power grip that is only rivalled by the Vatican. Integra can order a slaughter in front of international cameras in another country without real consequences.
* SheIsTheKing: Despite being a woman, she holds the male title "Sir" instead of "Lady".
** Only in the OVA. Her title can be translated as Lady or Dame in the manga, because it's gender-neutral. The only characters who are known to address her as Sir are Maxwell and Anderson.
** Taliesin Jaffe theory is that she holds the title of Sir is because she's a Grand Higharch of the Templars/Freemasons, and by rule there can't be a female Grand Higharch, so she would have to be recognized as a male knight in order to receive the title.
* ShutUpHannibal: Gives a short verbal bitch slap to Major [[spoiler: after killing him]].
** Also gives one to Jan Valentine. With her gun.
* SmokingIsCool
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: While this isn't so much an issue in the English speaking fandom, her name has an alternative spelling Hirano gives ('Integla').
* StiffUpperLip
* TheStoic: [[NotSoStoic Not quite]].
** NotSoStoic: She seems cold, distant, and icy, even when her life is in danger (which happens a lot as the series goes on). That is until her men or her vampires are involved. It becomes evident throughout the series that she struggles to be TheStoic during a big crisis.
* TeamMom: She acts this way sometimes in the manga, in particular as contrast to Alucard in their guidance of Seras. While he tries to be harsh, lying down the rules and teaching her practical matters in his twisted way, Integra nurtures her in own way via giving her {{Cool Down Hug}}s and feeding her (via her own blood) with more diplomacy (and sometimes, quite the LesYay fanservice). At the epilogue, she chides at her like a mother would to a naughty child.
* TheWomanWearingTheQueenlyMask
* TranquilFury
* {{Tsundere}}: Towards Alucard when he's being an ''idiot''.
** Which includes flinging the classic tsuntsun strategies "URUSAI!" and "Baka!" at him. Once even with a LuminescentBlush, verging on SuspiciouslySpecificDenial.
* UnresolvedSexualTension: With Alucard.
* VanHelsingHateCrimes: Despite being his descendant, this gets an interesting exploration considering that Integra was saved by a vampire from her only very living relative (who wanted her dead) and [[spoiler:she ends up ordering the deaths of all her enemies without discriminating who is undead and who ''isn't'']].
* VirginPower: Makes her blood extra delicious.
* YoungerThanTheyLook: For most of the series, Integra's only ''twenty-two'' years old and sometimes gets treated in a condescending way because of her age.
* WomenAreWiser: Easily the most intelligent and level-headed ([[{{Tsundere}} usu]][[NarmCharm ally]]) character in the series. Granted, it helps that most of the males in this series are [[BloodKnight bat]][[SirSwearsALot shit]] [[LargeHam in]][[ItAmusedMe sa]][[AxCrazy ne]].

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/FumikoOrikasa (JP), KT Gray (EN)

-->''"I did everything you told me... In return you're going to help me... Help me send these Nazis back to Hell!"''

A [[{{Moe}} cute]] young police officer who was caught in the wrong place at the wrong time. She was sent to investigate the mysteious disappearances in the small village of Cheddar. However, things are much worse as she finds out -- a vampire masquerading as a priest had taken over the village and killed all the villagers, most of them now turned into slavering, mindless ghouls (zombies). Despite being severely outmatched, Seras refuses to back down and fights as best as she could. She was finally captured and held hostage by the vampire priest, who threatened to rape and kill her. Alucard destroys the vampire, shooting Seras through the lung in the process. After this, Seras allows Alucard to suck her blood and transform her into a vampire. She becomes his servant and is employed as one of Hellsing's soldiers soon after.

----
* ActionGirl
* AdrenalineMakeover: Goes from a shy and submissive vampire girl to a hardcore Draculina.
* [[spoiler: ArtificialLimbs: Her shadow arm after she loses her real one to Zorin.]]
* AFormYouAreComfortableWith: Not as much as her Master, but [[spoiler: after she becomes a true vampire, she shifts her shadow/tendril into whatever she wants (arm or wing or swirly whip-thing).]]
** [[spoiler: And her whole body, if Anderson is to be believed.]]
--> [[spoiler: "Yer eyes look just like the depths o' Hell. Shame on ye, still taking on ae human form."]]
* {{Badass}}:
** BadassAdorable
** BadassInDistress: Occasionally, for Pip or Alucard to save.
*** And ''Integra'', too. See the "Sword Dancer" episode from the [[Anime/{{Hellsing}} 2001 TV series]].
* BattleCouple: With Pip.
* BeautyIsNeverTarnished: Subverted when she [[spoiler:loses her eyes and one arm during a battle. She regenerates her eyes, but her arm remains missing, replaced by a tendril of blood-shadow]].
* BerserkButton: [[spoiler:Never ''ever'' insult Pip Bernadotte in her presence]].
** [[spoiler: Don't kill him either, in her presence or not. Unless you really want your brains plastered against the nearest available wall]].
** PlayedForLaughs when [[LoveInterest Pip]] [[BelligerentSexualTension Bernadotte]] calls her a "freak"/"monster," or sings dirty songs near her.
* BewareTheNiceOnes: [[spoiler:You ''really'' shouldn't have killed Pip, Zorin Blitz...]]
** Also, [[spoiler:when the ghouls that Jan Valentine made out of Hellsing's initial guards swarm her. Seras promptly goes berserk and kills almost all of them, until Integra intervenes. Even Integra was frightened, and she doesn't flinch when held at gunpoint.]]
* {{BFG}}: The Harkonnens. Look at the first Harkonnen [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Walter_Dornez_Harkonnen.jpg compared to Walter]]. If you don't, long story short, Seras uses guns that are a few feet longer than she is tall.
** And near the end it's topped with [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/8.8_cm_FlaK_18/36/37/41 Flak 88]]. [[spoiler:Which she somehow summons.]]
*** Not so much summons as rips up from somewhere beneath the floor. Considering what else is lying around in that zeppelin, a Flak 88 seems pretty tame. A better question is how she knew it was there.
* BloodLust: Seems to go into something akin to a "blood rage" after tearing apart Hellsing's ghoul-turned army. Integra [[CooldownHug snaps her out of it]] and [[CharacterizationMarchesOn nothing comes from it]]. It never happens to her again, not even after [[spoiler:becoming a full-fledged vampire]].
* TheBigGirl: She may be short in stature, but vampire Seras can knock the tallest of men only their backsides with the slightest flick of her finger.
* BoobsOfSteel: Strongest female character in the series and has by far the largest chest.
* BrainsAndBrawn: With [[BattleCouple Pip]] as the Brains.
* BreakTheCutie
* CatSmile: She has one in OVA/Volume 8. And this was ''after'' [[spoiler: she drank Pip's blood, embraced true vampirism, and decimated Zorin and her troops.]]
* ColourCodedCharacters: Yellow.
* ConvenientlyAnOrphan: Walter finds that she has no family left, which makes [[{{Unperson}} dealing]] with her new [[TheMasquerade status as a vampire]] much simpler.
* CooldownHug: Seras gets one from Integra at the end of the Valentine brothers fight.
* CuteBruiser
* CuteLittleFangs: At least at ''first''...
* CuteMonsterGirl: Come on, admit it -- Seras is ''adorable''.
* DangerouslyShortSkirt: A miniskirt, and she [[ActionGirl definitely has the danger level]] set.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: Not very important to the story, but her childhood sucked ''[[HarmfulToMinors hardcore]]''.
* DarkIsNotEvil: Sure, Seras dresses in bright colors, but she's a vampire. And you know how ''most'' vampires are portrayed. Alucard himself should have been an indication.
** Played straight now that she's become a full-fledged vampire, complete with her clothes color-changing from yellow to dark red.
* DeadpanSnarker
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything?: The way a horde of male soldier ghouls grope and force Seras' legs apart during the Valentine Brothers' attack.
** Her LecherousLicking of the blood off Integra's finger.
* DontThinkFeel: During their first mission, Alucard orders Seras to use her [[OurVampiresAreDifferent "third eye"]] to snipe a [[SuperSpeed fast-running]] target, and she frets about it being night and having no scope. His answer amounts to this.
* DumbBlonde: According to Pip: "She's a bit dim/dumb, but a good girl."
* ExtremeDoormat: To Integra. With Alucard, it's sightly subverted since Seras complains several times, but he's so intimidating that it makes her act quieter. It doesn't stop her from sporting quite the stink-face, though.
* FairCop
* FreudianTrio: With Alucard as TheId and Integra as TheSuperego, Seras is TheEgo.
* FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire: The [[TokenGoodTeammate only one]] in [[BlackAndGreyMorality the]] [[CrapsackWorld series.]]
* GagBoobs
* GoodIsNotSoft: Heck no, she isn't. And that's [[UpToEleven before she gets mad]].
* GunsAkimbo: Harkonnen II.
* HappinessInSlavery: Being Alucard/Hellsing's servant doesn't seem to bother her very much. They gradually move more towards a mentor-apprentice, father-daughter relationship by the end of the series.
* TheHeart: Of an organization where having one is a weakness. It doesn't stop her from becoming a powerful Draculina and all-around badass, though.
* HeroicBSOD: After [[spoiler:Zorin kills Pip in OVA 7]].
* HiddenDepths
* HowDoIShotWeb: Seras encounters this issue with her new vampire powers.
* HunterOfHisOwnKind
* IHateYouVampireDad: There is no love lost between Seras and Alucard... [[spoiler:Until she drinks Pip's blood and becomes a true Draculina, at any rate...]]
** She doesn't really hate Alucard, he just scares the crap out of her. But at the same time, she looks to him as a sort of teacher and becomes visibly distraught whenever he's seriously (or seemingly) injured or killed.
* ImprobableAimingSkills: Could give Alucard a run for his money, given that we see her shooting down V1 rockets and firing at targets separated from her by walls and floors and still hitting them.
* InSeriesNickname: Police Girl (by the author himself, used by most characters), Girly/Missy/Mignonette (Pip Bernadotte's).
** Also, Ma Cher (by Pip Bernadotte) as of the OVA 6 English Dub.
* LecherousLicking: With Integra. You enjoyed it.
* LightningBruiser: While she's already stronger and faster than a normal human [[spoiler: after becoming a full vampire, she starts moving so fast that Millennium vampires, who can dodge bullets, can't react to her.]]
* LoomingSilhouetteOfRage
* LovelyAngels: With Integra in Volumes 9 and 10.
* MeaningfulName: Translated from Latin, her name means "Bringer of Victory".
* MsFanservice: It even gets [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] in-series.
** PantyShot: The uniform allows this. Ironically enough, the ''only'' time that Seras flashes her panties is in the last chapter, when she kicks a door in.
** Her first meeting with Sir Penwood in the OVA is a loose combination between AssKicksYou and CrashIntoHello, with emphasis on Seras' backside.
** Though considering her design and compared to many other examples of this trope, she's pretty tame considering we don't see any scenes of her naked or undressed.
* MoralityPet: Acts as this throughout the series. Honestly, if it weren't for Seras, [[IceQueen Integra]] and [[VillainProtagonist Alucard]] would be ''a lot'' less sympathetic. She literally brings out the best (however miniscule) in both of them.
* MoreDakka: Harkonnen II. A pair of ''thirty millimeter cannons'' (same size as the rounds used by the [[{{BFG}} GAU-8 Avenger]] in the [[CoolPlane A-10 Warthog]]) belt fed from a backpack, and fires out shells like a machine gun.
* NiceGirl: Remains the '''one''' ray of kind-hearted and good-natured sunshine in this franchise, [[spoiler: even after becoming a True Vampire]].
* NoNameGiven: It's not that the characters insisted to call her ''Police Girl'', but that Kohta Hirano didn't have a name for her until deadlines demanded him to change that at the end of the first volume. She was 'Police Girl' to him when he made the character. Then, she became Seras Victoria.
* NowThatsUsingYourTeeth: How she [[spoiler:tears off Zorin's arm]].
* [[spoiler: OfficialCouple: With Pip after she makes him her familiar.]]
* OralFixation: Occasionally.
* OfCourseImNotAVirgin: Seems very tempted to invoke this when Alucard asks as she's held hostage by a vampire, but tells the truth at the last second. [[ShootTheHostage Fortunately]] [[VirginPower for]] [[CurseThatCures her.]]
* ParalyzingFearOfSexuality: Implied with her backstory, her being [[ConvenientlyAnOrphan conveniently]] [[VirginPower a virgin]] for her FirstEpisodeResurrection, and her tendency to [[BerserkButton flip out]] when groped or faced with "sexual harassment." Then again, who wouldn't have hang ups about sex after [[spoiler: being ForcedToWatch as your mother was killed and raped, [[{{Squick}} in that order]], [[HarmfulToMinors while you were a small child]] ]]?
* PluckyGirl
* PluckyComicRelief: The source of most of the series humor.
* ThePollyanna: A more subtle example than most, but [[ParentalAbandonment no]] [[HarmfulToMinors matter]] [[DarkAndTroubledPast how]] [[AttemptedRape many]] [[SoleSurvivor tragedies]] [[FirstEpisodeResurrection this]] [[CrapsackWorld series]] [[TraumaCongaLine throws]] [[SerialEscalation at]] [[BreakTheCutie her]], Seras remains as cute, sunny and sweet as she ever was. Subverted immediately after [[spoiler: her parents' murders and her finally drinking blood,]] but she apparently recovers enough by [[spoiler: the time she joined Hellsing and returns for the DistantFinale]] that no one would even guess she has a DarkAndTroubledPast.
* PowerEchoes: [[spoiler: Gains an echo to her voice after drinking Pip's blood and becoming a true vampire.]]
* ProHumanTranshuman
* [[spoiler: RapeIsTheNewDeadParents: Hirano takes two for two as Seras' parents were murdered and her mother was raped right afterwards, [[ForcedToWatch right in front of her]], [[HarmfulToMinors when she was a small child]].]]
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Her eyes turn red, she's going berserk. In other words, RUN. [[spoiler: Turn red permanently after she drinks Pip's blood and embraces her vampire nature]].
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: [[SarcasmMode Zorin, you done goofed.]]
-->''"A gnat... You called him a '''gnat.''' You'll pay. You'll fucking pay! '''YOU'LL PAAAAY!'''''
-->''"How does it feel to have someone '''fuck with your head'''!? HOW DOES IT FEEL, '''YOU BITCH!?"'''''
* ShipperOnDeck: [[spoiler:In Romancia, Seras subtly teased Integra with Alucard, by trying to mimic him and offer to suck her blood. [[{{Tsundere}} Integra got angry and kicked her as result]]]].
* ShounenHair
* ShoutOut: The name of Seras' main weapon comes from ''{{Dune}}''. Hirano jokingly compared the Harkonnen II's design to the [[{{Gundam0083}} Dendrobium Orchis]].
* {{Sidekick}} to Alucard, Integra, and briefly Walter.
** NonHumanSidekick
* SingleWomanSeeksGoodMan: Debatable in the manga how much or how long Seras likes Pip before [[spoiler: the BigDamnKiss]], but the reader doesn't see them get along or learn of their feelings till after Pip reveals his HiddenHeartOfGold.
** Heavily implied in the OVA though, particularly OVA 7 CreativeClosingCredits. A PhotoMontage reveals the two fought like cats and dogs until Pip talked sweetly with her in Rio de Janeiro. From then on, they constantly spend time and get along together. Considering [[TheGadfly Pip]] usually started/escalated fights by [[BerserkButton pushing her buttons]], it's likely [[TheHeart Seras]] didn't come around until he TookALevelInKindness toward her.
** At the very least, his nobler qualities seem to be what attract her, not the "bad boy" mercenary persona.
* [[spoiler:SlasherSmile: Do '''not''' under ''any'' circumstances piss the sweet, busty blonde with the mortar off. She will rend you apart with her bare hands and be enjoying every second of doing it.]]
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Is it Seras, Ceres, or ''Serouss''?
* TheSquadette
* ThemeMusicPowerUp: In Ultimate 7, [[spoiler:while Seras drinks Pip's blood, "Zakuro" by Suilen underscores both her transformation and her defeat of Zorin's forces]].
* {{Tomboy}}: When she was young. Though still shows signs of it.
* TookALevelInBadass: Becomes the second strongest vampire after she drank [[spoiler:Bernadotte's]] blood
* TokenGoodTeammate: The only character that could be considered a full-on hero, even after [[spoiler:devouring Pip's blood and becoming a full-on vampire]], her niceness is absolutely impossible to debate.
* TraumaCongaLine: [[BreakTheCutie Lost the people closest to her]] not once, not twice, [[UpToEleven not three times]], but '''[[SerialEscalation four]]''' times.
* {{Tsundere}}: Towards Pip Bernadotte, in particular.
* UnresolvedSexualTension: With Pip Bernadotte [[spoiler:at least in the beginning]].
* UnstoppableRage: When she snaps, such as during the Valentine Brothers assault and Zorin Blitz's assault.
* [[WellDoneSonGuy "Well Done, Daughter" Girl]]: Seems to be anxious to win Alucard's approval of her merits. [[spoiler:After killing Zorin, [[ILoveYouVampireSon she]] [[SoProudOfYou got]] [[PetTheDog just]] [[CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming that]].]]
* YourEyesCanDeceiveYou: Her human eyes, according to Alucard.
* [[ManBitesMan Vampire Bites Vampire]]: Hope you didn't need that [[spoiler: arm, Zorin!]]
* ZettaiRyouiki: Thigh high socks and mini skirt. Nuff' said!

[[folder: Walter C. Dornez]]
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/walter01_40.png]]

->'''Voiced by:''' Motomu Kiyokawa (old) / Creator/DaisukeNamikawa (young adult) / Creator/RomiPark (teenager) (JP), Ralph Lister (EN)

-->''"Oh dear, I missed...I guess I'm not as spry as I used to be. My name is Walter Dornez, butler to the Hellsing family and former master vampire hunter."''

Integra's butler and also the retired retainer of the Hellsing Family. He is known as the "Angel of Death", due to his incredible fighting prowess and skill with manipulating ultra-thin wires that can cut nearly anything to ribbons. Don't be fooled by his elderly appearance -- to this day, he can still prove to kick a lot of undead ass.

----
* AlwaysSecondBest: To Alucard. During their [[spoiler: final confrontation]], Alucard even rubs it in Walter's face by stating that if Anderson couldn't defeat him, then a "brat" like Walter never could. Of course, this blatantly implies that Walter wasn't even second best, but ''third'' best behind Anderson, who Alucard views as his true rival and WorthyOpponent.
* AsideGlance: Can give these from time to time.
* {{Badass}}:
** BadassBookworm
** BadassGrandpa: Emphasis on the "Badass" part. 70 years old, and still quite capable of tearing you and your undead army some new orifices. He claims he's not as spry as he used to be... which makes you wonder what he was like when he was ''younger''. [[spoiler:Then he gets rejuvenated, losing the Grandpa part, and vampirised and keeps the Badass part.]]
** RetiredBadass: He used to fight on the front lines with Alucard, but now serves as Integra's butler and only participates in combat when the manor itself is threatened. [[spoiler: And then he comes of retirement to be deaged and vampirized...]]
* BattleButler: To the Hellsing family. Next to Alucard, he's probably the strongest fighter they have to offer, and he rips an entire hallway full of Jan Valentine's ghouls to bloody pieces.
* BattleCouple: Not a romantic one, but Young Walter and Girlycard ([[spoiler:female version of Alucard]]) can be included here.
* {{Bishounen}} Kid Walter. He looks a bit like [[Manga/DeathNote L]], too.
* [[{{Bishounen}} Biseinen]]: Walter as a young man is a ''fucking gorgeous'' biseinen.
* ButHeSoundsHandsome: [[spoiler: If Walter worked for Millennium before the series started and/or leaked information for the Valentine Brothers' attack on Hellsing, his praising whoever orchestrated the attack as a "tactical genius" can come across as this.]]
* ColourCodedCharacters: Dark purple.
* CoolOldGuy: He may be 70+ years old but he sure can still rip you a new one.
* [[spoiler:DeadlyUpgrade: Vampirized Walter, who's only stable in this 14-year-old form]].
* DeadpanSnarker
* [[spoiler:EvilCostumeSwitch: Walter's post-vamping ensemble.]]
* [[spoiler:FaceHeelTurn: Although Sir Islands points out there's reason to suspect that he turned WAY before the series started. Sixty years, in fact]].
* [[spoiler:FinalBoss: Even though it's Schrödinger who 'defeats' him, he is Alucard's final enemy in the OVA and manga.]]
* [[spoiler:GoOutWithASmile]]
* [[spoiler:GreenEyedMonster: He's tired of being AlwaysSecondBest and wanted to defeat Alucard at least ''once'']].
* [[spoiler:HeelFaceTurn: Walter redeemed himself at the very end.]]
* HiddenDepths
* InSeriesNickname: "Shinigami Walter" (Angel of Death/Grim Reaper Walter).
* InexplicablyAwesome
* IWasQuiteALooker: Walter was [[PrecisionFStrike fucking]] ''hot'' when he was younger.
* KickTheDog: He stomps on [[spoiler: Anderson's ashes only moments after his death. And calls him rubbish for dying. Right in front of Heinkel, Yumie, and all of the other Iscariot priests who Anderson had raised as his own children. Alucard, Integra, and Seras are all equally infuriated and disgusted by this action. Then, he slices poor Yumie into pieces when she tries to avenge her mentor's desecration. Ouch.]]
* TheLancer: Back when he was partnered solely with Alucard. Now, he's more of TheSmartGuy.
* MouthyKid: ''Dawn'' reveals that he was rather bratty as a kid. Probably justified; it'd be hard to discipline a 14-year-old whose well-deserved nickname is "Angel of Death".
* [[spoiler:TheMole: For Millennium.]]
* [[spoiler:OneLastSmoke: How he goes out.]]
* RazorFloss: His trademark weapon, stored in his gloves. Walter has three versions of his gloves, two pairs like normal gloves (in white and black) and a fingerless pair.
* [[spoiler:RivalTurnedEvil]]: [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation One possible interpretation.]]
* [[ScaryShinyGlasses Scary Shiny Monocle]]: Half the glasses, double the [[BuffySpeak scary-shininess]].
* SmokingIsCool: Young Walter thinks so.
* TallDarkAndSnarky
* [[spoiler:TheButlerDidIt: is believed to be behind the security breaches that allowed the Valentine brothers to infiltrate Hellsing's HQ.]]
* TrailersAlwaysSpoil: A victim of it, especially for those who have not read the manga. The initial trailer for the ''Ultimate'' [=OVA=] (the big one set to "Broken English") showed off a glimpse of [[spoiler:Walter as a vampire]]. Then, the credits for ''Ultimate'' 3 revealed [[spoiler:Walter amongst the Millenium commanders back in 1944]]. The trailer for ''Ultimate'' 8 also re-showed [[spoiler:Walter's rejuvenated vampire form]].
* [[spoiler: TraitorShot: In [[FridgeBrilliance hind sight]], if Walter was working for Millennium all along, many of his [[AsideGlance aside glances]] throughout the series could be this, especially when other characters discuss Millennium around him.]]
* WaistcoatOfStyle
* WithFriendsLikeThese: Implied to be [[spoiler: part of the reason he might have made a deal with Millennium]] in ''The Dawn'', where Alucard and Arthur really don't treat him well. TheHedonist Arthur drinks and womanizes in the luxury of his mansion while Walter risks his life in Warsaw (which [[OnlySaneMan Sir Irons]] [[WhatTheHellHero calls him out on]]), and Alucard repeatedly lets him fend for himself against an opponent he has little hope of winning against. Yikes.

The captain of the Wild Geese [[PrivateMilitaryContractors mercenaries]], who are hired by Hellsing after the entire Hellsing forces were wiped out by the Valentine Brothers. Bernadotte is cynical, snarky, and a pervert, but he's also a cunning strategist and very proficient in the art of war.

* BattleCouple: With Seras.
* BloodKnight: Acts like he's [[OnlyInItForTheMoney only in it for the money]], but according to him and his grandfather, his family all became mercenaries for "the fun of it".
* [[BoyMeetsGhoul Boy meets Draculina]]: Overlapping with MeetCute. His introduction to Seras Victoria had shades of BelligerentSexualTension since the beginning.
** WordOfGod is that Pip and Seras ''would'' [[ShipTease make for a cute couple]] (as seen [[http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20120105193960/hellsing/images/f/f4/Pipseras.png here]]), had things been different. But with him being a lifelong Merc and her being an undead blood-sucker... well, things really wouldn't work for them. [[spoiler: Though they eventually become a "couple", of sorts, after Pip becomes her familiar.]]
** More specifically, Kohta Hirano stated that if Seras wasn't a vampire and Pip wasn't a mercenary, "they would be the perfect couple, everyone would be envious of." Whether he means they [[spoiler: still become a couple, if a flawed and odd one,]] or they wouldn't work is up for interpretation.
* [[BraidsOfAction Braid Of Action]]
* BrainsAndBrawn: With Seras as the Brawn.
* TheCaptain
* ChivalrousPervert
* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: Usually green, but one that is brownish instead of bright green.
* CombatPragmatist: Pip's one for sure. He knows for a fact that his men don't stand a chance fighting close range, so he ultimately relies on Seras' MoreDakka, landmines, claymores and general trickery to win battles. He wipes out 80% of Zorin's forces during her strike.
* DeadpanSnarker
* TheDeterminator
* DisappearedDad: He died fighting in Colombia.
* DoubleEntendre: VERY fond of using these.
* EveryoneLooksSexierIfFrench
* EyepatchOfPower
* AFatherToHisMen
* TheGadfly/Troll: To Seras, at least at first.
* GeniusBruiser
* GuileHero: The defenses that he sets up against Millennium succeed in stopping them dead in their tracks.
* TheHeart
* [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice]]
* HeyYou: Like Alucard and Integra before him, Pip refuses to call Seras by name, even after she corrects him. Only does so while giving her a RousingSpeech about avenging London, and after [[spoiler: successfully stealing a kiss]].
* HiddenDepths
* InsultOfEndearment: Girl/Girly/Missy/Ma Cher (depending on the translation) for Seras, to make fun of her youth, inexperience, and gender. Over time, it becomes an AffectionateNickname.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold
* KnightInSourArmor
* LadykillerInLove: Has shades of this with Seras.
* LoveInterest: For Seras.
* LimitedWardrobe: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] in Pip's case. We've seen him in at least three different outfits besides his mercenary apparel.
* MadeOfIron: Poor [[BadassNormal guy]] gets attacked again and again by Zorin and her mooks, including getting stabbed in the stomach by a wooden splinter. It takes [[spoiler:a few shots into his torso and being ''stabbed straight through the back'' by Zorin's scythe to finally bring him down, and he's able to light a cigarette and give one last Rousing Speech before he kicks the bucket.]] Sort of.
* MrFanservice
* NiceHat
* [[spoiler:NotQuiteDead]]
* OfficerAndAGentleman
* [[spoiler:OfficialCouple: With Seras, after he becomes her familiar.]]
* OnlyInItForTheMoney: Being a mercenary, he says that money -- even just a few cents -- is his only real reason for fighting... until he meets Seras, that is.
** After seeing what Millennium does to London, he pretty quickly finds moral reasons to want them dead, though he didn't really have any possibility of running away from them, either.
** Subverted when he admits to himself that just like [[BadassFamily all the men in his family going back to his "grandfather's grandfather's grandfather"]], it was never about the money, but the fun of fighting.
* RedHeadedHero
* RousingSpeech: A fountain of them.
* TheSmartGuy
* [[spoiler:SacrificialLion]]
* ScarfOfAsskicking: Sports an impressively classy red scarf.
* SmokingIsCool
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: "Bernadotte," "Bernadette" or "Vernadead"?
* [[spoiler:StuffedIntoTheFridge]]
* TallDarkAndHandsome
* TallDarkAndSnarky
* ThisIsUnforgivable: What Millennium does to London. Says as much to motivate Seras in a RousingSpeech.
* ThisMeansWar: See above.
* TrueLoveIsExceptional: A perverted human mercenary that used to frequent cabarets and cathouses falls for sweet, innocent, virginal, (and [[ParalyzingFearOfSexuality erotophobic]]) vampire girl Seras Victoria. Go figure.
* UnscrupulousHero: At the beginning.
* [[WhenSheSmiles When He Smiles]] While not unfriendly or bad-looking in his own right, the smile he gives after [[spoiler: successfully kissing Seras]] could melt a heart of iron.

[[folder: Dr. Abraham Van Helsing]]
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/abraham01_1574.png]]

->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/ChikaoOhtsuka (JP), Curt Lowens (EN)

-->''"This is not a nightmare you will be awaking from. You castles are plundered, your dominion is in ruins. Your servants destroyed. And the girl has fled this place forever more! She will NEVER be yours, Count! You are judged, and found wanting Vampire King! You have nothing! You ARE nothing! NOTHING!"''

A Dutch doctor who took interest in many fields, he was also a master vampire hunter who's greatest accomplishment was defeating Count Dracula. After he [[spoiler:captured and enslaved Dracula]], he founded the Hellsing Organization as a means of fighting the vampire threat.

----
* {{Badass}}: '''This''' was the man who defeated Dracula at his best, in an implied CurbStompBattle and is the reason he thinks HumansAreSpecial. Damn. Ladies and gentlemen, meet the most {{Badass}} character in the series.

** BadassLongcoat: [[spoiler:It would later become Alucard�s.]]
* CoolOldGuy

All that is stated is that Dracula went all out, and Abraham managed to put such fear (and respect) that has haunted his nightmares for hundreds of years and make him weep blood... yeah. No matter how you cut it, this man is {{Badass}}. Regardless of whether or not it was a team effort, it's clear that Helsing was the most important combatant
* OurFounder
* WorldsStrongestMan: Let us say it again: He beat Alucard ''at his very best'' in a CurbStompBattle. '''Alucard''', Who may just be one of the single most overpowered characters in anime history.

----
* TheAlcoholic: Takes his tea with whiskey.
* TheCasanova: At least in his younger days.
* TheChessmaster
* DescriptionCut: During WWII, Arthur confidently assures [[SpellMyNameWithAnS Sir Irons/Islands]] that BattleButler Walter is one of the finest vampire hunters in the world, despite being JustAKid, and there is no way he can fail. Back in Warsaw, [[spoiler: Walter is being strangled to death by the Captain, and is only saved at the last minute by Alucard.]]

* TrashOfTheTitans: When Walter isn't around to pick up after him.
