Characters: Millennium Nazis


Millenium in Hellsing refers to three things: A plan set in motion by Adolf Hitler to create an army of vampire nazi soldiers to bring about his Thousand Year Empire; the organization in charge of realizing this dream, and after their initial defeat (by Alucard's and Walter's hands), the operation to safely evacuate key members of Millennium to South America. Hitler's dream is long dead, but the operation still lives within the deviously capable hands of The Major — a crazy little man hell bent on starting another war just because he really likes war.

    The Major 

Voiced by: Nobuo Tobita (JP), Gildart Jackson (EN)

"Gentlemen, all I ask for is war. War so grand as to make Hell itself tremble. Gentlemen, I ask you as fellow brothers in arms what is it that you really want? Do you wish for further war as I do? Do you wish for a merciless, bloody war? A war whose fury is built with iron and lightning and fire? Do you wish for war to sweep in like a tempest leaving not even ravens to scavenge from this Earth!?"

The leading commander of Millenium, an nazi vampire organization hellbent on destroying London as a revenge for the Third Reich's defeat. He is a short, fat, Aryan cyborg who was a former member of SS, who was given order from the Führer himself to create a mighty army of super vampires. He created at least 1000 vampires before Nazi Germany's defeat but the Major took the Führer's order at heart and spent the last 50 years on planning to restart World War II.

    The Captain 

The Dragon to the Major's Big Bad. He is a seemingly-immortal werewolf, always seen in his full uniform with the collar turned up. Like Alucard and Anderson, the Captain is his organization's supernatural trump card, boasting great strength, speed and abilities in all three of his forms.

    The Doktor 

Voiced by: Hiroshi Naka (JP), Marcelo Tubert (EN)

"It is simply magnificent! I MUST HAVE ONE!"

The chief scientist of Millennium. He is the one responsible for the creation of the artificial vampires, made possible by his work involving "Shi" (Mina Harker's remains). He is always seen with a blood-stained lab coat, glasses with multiple lens, and often a remote with many buttons whose functions range from incinerating subordinates to destroying Jackal. Ironically, he's arguably the sanest of the Millennium bunch. He frequently scolds Warrant Officer Schrödinger.

    First Lieutenant Zorin Blitz 

Voiced by: Yoko Soumi (JP), Helena Taylor (OVA 4, EN), Rachel Robinson (OVA 5-7, EN)

"These hardened Waffen-SS are ready to piss themselves at the sight of a girl! This is bullscheiße!"

As part of Operation Seelowe 2, she is tasked with attacking Hellsing Manor, laying siege to it with Seras and the Wild Geese inside. As a vampire, she is enthusiastic about killing humans, frequently calling them "insects". Zorin makes use of her ability to torture her opponents, physically and mentally. She has an intense fixation on Seras for some reason. Which doesn't end well for her.

  • Ax-Crazy: Easily the craziest below the Major.
  • The Brute: Her only smart tactic is the severe Mind Rape she inflicts on her enemy.
  • Butch Lesbian: No word on what her orientation is, but she has the appearance. Pip calls her an "ugly dike" several times.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death/Karmic Death: Seras literally turns her into a red smear on a wall.
  • Dark Action Girl: More brutish than Rip Van Winkle.
  • Death by Irony: She threatened to paint the walls with Seras' blood. Guess how she dies.
  • Evil Gloating: Engages in this often.
  • Evil Redhead: Evil Orange head.
  • Eyes Do Not Belong There: She has one on the palm of her right hand.
  • Genre Blindness: After nearly killing Seras and Pip she decides to gloat and watch them suffer, not thinking to stop Seras from taking Pip's blood.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: The Major specifically orders her not to attack Hellsing HQ due to Integra and Seras being incalculable variables. What's the first thing Zorin does? Attack Hellsing HQ.
  • Master of Illusion: Her power which uses for Mind Rape.
  • Mind Rape: Her favorite tactic.
  • Psycho for Hire: The most unstable of the Major's minions.
  • Psycho Lesbian: Some translations have Pip calling Zorin one. She is, at the very least, fixated on hurting Seras.
  • Rewarded as a Traitor Deserves: To quote Schrödinger:
    "Rest assured, she'll be ending your unlife any moment now. Auf Wiedersehen..."
  • Shout-Out: Her name is a reference to Bond villain Max Zorin and the German tactic blitzkrieg. Also, Hirano sometimes works phrases into her tattoos, such as "Trigun Maximum" and "Elvis Lives". In one of the omake, he admits to doing this as a result of boredom and the sheer tediousness of the detail involved.
  • Sinister Scythe
  • Slasher Smile: Zorin really enjoys using her powers.
  • Smug Snake: She was specifically warned by the Major not to underestimate Seras...
  • Social Darwinist
  • Spanner in the Works: Pip comes up with a well thought out plan to stop the Millennium vampires through the use of claymore mines to disrupt their charge and then pick them off with gunfire in the confusion, but nothing could have prepared him for Zorin taking his men off-guard by creating an illusion of herself as a giant. Seras manages snap them out of it, but the time she does it's too late.
  • Tattooed Crook: The tattoos activate a very visual illusion.
  • You Have Failed Me: The Major lets Seras brutally murder Zorin for disobeying orders rather than activating her suicide chip and granting her a much more merciful and dignified death. It's awesome.
    • Its also a bit warped; Rip Van Winkle shared the same fate — in her case, she was brutally murdered by Alucard — but the reason her chip wasn't activated was as a reward for her so-called Heroic Sacrifice. They shared the same fate for the exact opposite reasons.

    First Lieutenant Rip Van Winkle 

Voiced by: Maaya Sakamoto (JP), Kari Wahlgren (EN)

"Tinker-tailor-soldier-sailor, my bullet punishes all without distinction."

Millennium's magical sharpshooter and Perky Female Minion, seen singing opera in her first appearance. She compares herself to Kaspar, the antagonist of the German opera Der Freischütz; appropriately, her Weapon of Choice is a musket with magic bullets.

  • Ace Pilot: She pilots a helicopter to the Eagle with just her feet while in a perfectly relaxed state casually sing and loading her musket.
  • Affably Evil
  • Author Appeal: Rip Van Winkle has been described as "The sum of all Hirano's fetishes". And seeing how her death scene is chock-full of rape imagery, this has some frightening implications.
  • Ax-Crazy
  • Back for the Dead
  • Bizarre and Improbable Ballistics: Her weapon of choice generally has an aimed range of about 50 yards. She routinely hits multiple targets with a single bullet from well outside the nominal effective range of her weapon, even if this requires the bullets to change direction in mid-flight. How she does this is never explained in the OVA but in the manga they are explained to be magic bullets.
  • Breast Attack: Gets a particularly brutal one by Alucard. He took her musket and impaled her through her left breast with it. Keep in mind that her musket has no bayonet and therefor is completely blunt and impractical for stabbing, so it must've hurt much worse.
  • Catch Phrase: Varies by translation, but it's usually something along the lines of "Tinker, tailor, soldier, sailor, my bullet punishes all without distinction."
    • Her rendition of "O diese Sonne" counts as well. Doubles as an Ear Worm.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander
  • Curtains Match the Window
  • Cute and Psycho
  • Cute Monster Girl
  • Dark Action Girl: Less brutish than Zorin, but still a force to be reckoned with.
  • Dark Chick
  • Even Evil Has Standards: She sure doesn't like traitors who would sell out their comrades in exchange for superpowers, and she won't hesitate to execute them. Despite the fact the first act her organization did was betray their high command.
  • Exact Words: English Dub at least. When Rip Van Winkle says, "You definitely deserve everything that's coming to you" after you betrayed your crew and country to join her ranks as an immortal vampire, she'll deliver just that.
  • Face Death with Dignity: Although she breaks down at first when Alucard arrives, he actually pauses and lets her compose herself and fire off one last shot before killing her.
  • Friendly Sniper: Despite being a Nazi, she does seem more approachable in comparison to her peers.
  • Genre Savvy: When she fights Alucard, she did something everyone else didn't do: Freak the hell out. Luke thought he was stronger than Alucard, and Alhambra thought he was in a fair fight with Alucard, they both got killed by him. Rip knew that as soon as Alucard got near the ship, she'd have no chance and that all that awaits her is a gruesome death that there's nothing she can do about, so instead of fighting him head-on, she tries to blow up the plane he was in from a distance. And when she was forced to fight head-on, she didn't try to kill him, just knock him into the water so she could presumably escape.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Villainous example. The Major glorifies her death, as it ensured the initial success of Operation Seelowe 2 by luring Alucard away from London.
  • Homing Projectile: Her magic bullets.
  • Idiot Hair
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: With her musket, a blunt object.
  • Interplay of Sex and Violence: Her entire death scene, which, due to Alucard taking his time with her, is shown in luxurious detail. I mean, if you only remove the blood from this image...
  • Lady of War: A very giggly, psychotic one but she is one of Millennium's more cultured members, spins her musket like a color guard and compared to Zorin Blitz's approach, her fighting style is more about precision than out and out power.
  • Looks Like She Is Enjoying It: Rip's Japanese VA in the OVA decided to go in this direction. Her English VA didn't.
  • Meganekko
  • More Teeth than the Osmond Family: Her trademark shark smile.
  • Older than They Look: Rip appeared in Dawn, meaning that she is at least 60 years old. Admittedly she's a tech vampire.
    • This trope applies to the rest of Millennium as well.
  • Perky Female Minion
  • Pinball Projectile: Her magic bullets.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: What with the color guard-esque shenanigans with her Musket and general squee-ing personality, Rip comes off less like a Vampiric monster and more like a really chipper 13 year-old who's totally excited about this whole Nazi thing.
    • Taliesin Jaffe compares her to a character out of a nursery rhyme, in the way she talks (tinker, tailor, soldier, sailor), her general cheerfulness in her psychosis, and how she seems to have an almost Little Red Riding Hood-esque naivete in just what she's getting herself into. The latter is especially prominent when she is in essence devoured by a big bad wolf.
  • Rapunzel Hair
  • Rewarded as a Traitor Deserves: Will not hesitate to dish these out. See Even Evil Has Standards and Exact Words.
  • Scary Shiny Glasses
  • Shout-Out: Der Freischütz.
  • Slasher Smile
  • Villainous Breakdown: Turns into a sobbing wreck when Alucard lands on her ship, her subordinate even tells her to get a hold of herself.
    • To be more accurate, she starts having this when Alucard was in proximity of the ship before he even landed. Most vampires would arrogantly face Alucard before they themselves have this. She knew from the start she cannot win against him.
  • Wicked Cultured: Shoots down fighter planes while singing opera.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Only in the OVA, where it's a navy blue to contrast it from her black suit. Hirano colors her hair black.

    Warrant Officer Schrödinger 

Voiced by: Ryōko Shiraishi (JP), Laura Bailey (EN)

"You're so slow! In the time it took you to walk down one little hallway, I went all the way to London, got my head blown off, and made it back. Perhaps you should start thinking about going on a diet, mein Major."

The blond, sassy Cat Boy who's "everywhere and nowhere". Although he looks like comic relief, he's not to be brushed off; due to his powers, he's physically (mathematically) impossible to kill or destroy.

    First Lieutenant Tubalcain "The Dandy Man" Alhambra 

Voiced by: Hochu Otsuka (JP), Steve Wilcox (EN)

"Alucard, the great vampire. You are such a disappointment!"

The second Millennium agent to confront Hellsing. He is modeled after Brazilian malandro characters and his powers are very similar to various DC and Marvel characters.

    The Valentine Brothers 

Voiced by: Takehito Koyasu (Luke, JP) and Wataru Takagi (Jan, JP), Patrick Seitz (Luke, EN) and Josh Philips (Jan, EN)

"We highly recommend pissing yourselves, followed by a course of praying to your impotent god. But hey, you can always be a man and kill yourself! Thank you London, we love you! GOOD NIGHT!"

Jan and Luke Valentine are the first of the Millennium forces sent specifically to attack Hellsing. Appearance-wise, Luke is a sophisticated pretty boy. He is the "brains" of the operation and he believes that he can surpass Alucard. His vampiric power manifests as regeneration and super-speed. While Jan doesn't seem to have any specialized power whatsoever, he's more than happy to casually slaughter ordinary humans. Covered in piercings, he is the more vulgar and depraved of the brothers. Despite their status as some of the weaker of Millennium's agents, they manage to inflict significant casualties on Hellsing's human personnel.

     Letztes Battalion 
The army of 1000 artificially created vampires from Nazi Veterans.
