Characters / Millennium Nazis


Millennium 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 ask for war to sweep in like a tempest leaving not even ravens to scavenge from this Earth!?"

The commanding officer of Millennium, a unit of Nazi vampires hellbent on destroying London as a revenge for the Third Reich's defeat. He is a short, fat, Aryan, who was given orders 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.

  • Authority Equals Asskicking: Averted, which is strange given his extreme love for killing.
  • Ax-Crazy: Hands down the biggest example in the series. Hands down. Even Alucard at his most terrifying doesn't approach the Major's level of derangement.
  • Badass Finger Snap: The Major really enjoys using these during his speeches and while expanding on his schemes.
  • Badass Longcoat: Subverted. This longcoat-sporting guy isn't exactly badass.
  • Batman Gambit: Everything that he does leads to the point where Alucard releases his back-up souls and is himself vulnerable, and thus can be killed. If that failed, Alucard would then be "poisoned" by Schrödinger's blood as he rejuvenated himself, thus removed from the world. The Major was planning on this to happen because since he sees Alucard as his antithesis, he must be destroyed.
  • Big Bad: Of the Manga and OVA, where his experiments with artificial vampires caused every single conflict in the story except the brief opening Cheddar village incident.
  • Blood Knight: He even gives a five minute speech on how much and why he loves war right before he starts the attack on London. It's exceptionally fortunate for the rest of the world that he isn't interested in more power.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: Admits that he's a warmonger and an "irredeemable scoundrel" through and through.
  • Character Filibuster: The man loves war and death, that's for sure. He also really loves to hear himself talk.
  • The Chessmaster: All throughout the series, everybody dances according to the Major's deranged tune. This guy's scheme allows him destroy the capital of Britain without having to deal with any interference from one of the strongest armies in the world.
  • Clasp Your Hands If You Deceive: He's very good at this.
  • Colour-Coded for Your Convenience: Kohta Hirano also designed him purple, but a lighter shade than Walter's. In the OVA, it's switched for a cooler shade of yellow.
  • Combat Sadomasochist: In his speech where he talks about how he loves everything about war, he also includes the parts where he loses and the humiliation that comes with it.
  • Curtains Match the Window: In the OVA.
  • Dangerously Genre Savvy: Claims Integra and Seras are imperfect, inexperienced, and untested. Therefore, deserving of the same scrutiny as if they were Alucard.
  • Death Seeker: The defining character trait of him and Millennium. Since WWII came to an end, what else is there for them to do? But they had to orchestrate a new war for it.
  • Determinator: Probably the human with the greatest force of will in the entire 'verse, being the only one who managed to sneer at the "power of the monsters" at his death and still be himself. Remember that neither Alucard or Anderson were capable of this.
  • Dissonant Serenity: Arguably his scariest trait. He's raving on about war, bloodshed and fanatical Nazism, but he's always polite and gently smiling.
  • Earn Your Happy Ending: It took 50 years, but in the end, it was worth it. It's subverted in the long run, though, since Alucard gets the last laugh.
  • Face Death with Dignity: Unsurprisingly, given he's said that he wants to die the whole time.
  • Fat Bastard: He's more chubby than obese, but he's still very much a bastard.
  • A Father to His Men:
    • Zig-zagged. He may not care for his men individually, he'll order their deaths when they argue with him too much, and he displays no empathy at all, but he gives them a purpose, a speech for morale, and treats his soldiers pretty well overall.
    • He gives an official salute for Rip van Winkle, whose orders basically consisted entirely of being killed by Alucard at just the right time to keep him out of London as his soldiers attacked it. But she did what was asked of her, so he'll honor her.
  • Faux Affably Evil: He's a very sophisticated, intelligent, formal speaker that will speak politely while observing the deaths of millions and as he orders a bullet put through your brain if you're not on with his plans. He never drops the tone but the sick interest he has in causing war and terror marks him as far too sinister for this to be genuine.
  • For the Evulz: He would even give Heath Ledger's Joker a run for his money. He wants to watch the world burn, but The Major literally starts the firestorms.
  • Four Eyes, Zero Soul: He is given an evil, foreboding presence, which is emphasized by scenes involving him twisting his face menacingly, with his glasses always noticeably catching the light, often completely covering his eyes.
  • Go Out with a Smile: As far as The Major was concerned, he got his war, he killed Alucard, he was finally able to hit his target and he got his death. The Major died a very happy man...
  • Graceful Loser: He got his war, so it didn't matter if he won it or not. He's happy in the end. Even if Integra says otherwise and likely doesn't understand what war constitutes in his mind.
  • Imperial Stormtrooper Marksmanship Academy: The most likely reason as to why the Major doesn't take to the battlefield himself; his marksmanship leaves a lot to be desired.
  • It's All About Me: When the Soviets beat back the Nazis, he was confronted with the chance at drinking blood and becoming immortal, but he rejected it. Why? He loathes the idea of "sharing" his existence with "ruin made flesh" by taking in the soul of another, because he equates that to surrender, and happily boasts about doing what Anderson and Alucard could not - preserve his own, singular will. In his own words, "what's mine is mine alone." And he is a Nazi, so what is not like him must be destroyed, especially if it is a thing so wantonly inhuman as Alucard. Not too much later, Integra and Seras discover the Major is a cyborg. He is ultimately what he once called Alucard - a creature who wears "the guise of a man" while truly being something else. He's brimming with so much arrogance that he still proclaims his humanity even as gears tumble from his own ruined flesh. In fact, Alucard never pretends to be human and frequently reminds those he encounters that he is monstrous, while hoping that his death will come at the hands of someone truly human. The Major is ultimately, unwittingly, just what he claims to despise about Alucard - except the Major is too deranged to notice what he's become. Or perhaps has always been.
  • Hollywood Cyborg: Revealed to be one, after a shot from Seras' BFG leaves him Half the Man He Used to Be but allows him to survive.
  • Knight of Cerebus: When his plan really gets into gear, the plot starts and shit goes down.
  • Large Ham: For starters, he gives a bombastic speech about war.
  • Light Is Not Good: Dresses in a bright white suit, but he's anything but good.
  • Man in White: Unlike his vampire soldiers, he dresses in a pure-white suit. His expensive taste in dress emphasizes his difference in ambition from his soldiers: while they wear uniforms and follow orders, he wears what he wants and has the nigh-impossible desire to kill Alucard, a vampire with godlike strength.
  • Man of Wealth and Taste: He dresses immaculately and other than devouring a hot dog at one point, he's always seen eating beef filet, accompanied by a glass of red wine. Of course, that said steak is so rare that blood pops out when he takes a bite certainly speaks volumes about his character.
  • Manipulative Bastard: He's managed to convince all of Millenium to be so devoted to his plan that they will throw their lives away without question for his case. He also carefully sets up the London battlefield to keep Alucard and Hellsing distracted fighting his minions while he gets ready to use Schrödinger for his ultimate plan.
  • Nerd in Evil's Helmet: He's a stereotypical fat, bespectacled nerd, has been described by Hirano as an "otaku", and despite his obsession with war he's personally a terrible fighter. In the third OVA dub, apropos of nothing, he starts singing the theme for Fist of the North Star - in German.
  • Non-Action Big Bad: He lets his minions do all the work for him. He does get into a gunfight with Integra at the end, but the only reason it's even a "fight" is because he kept missing at the beginning, and she only needed one bullet to put him down. He's that inept at shooting.
  • Nightmare Fetishist: Apart from his...weird...attitude to war, combat and violence, he compliments Alucard extravagantly despite apparently finding him nauseating - as a "my beautiful, dazzling Count".
  • No Name Given:
    • The three "heads" of Millennium all have this going for them. Most fans refer to him as "Montana Max", based on his prototypical appearance in Coyote, to prevent confusion with another Major.
    • Strangely enough, in the English credits of Ultimate Episodes V-VIII, his name was credited as "Major Max." No word if it's actually canon.
  • Older Than They Look: He's in his 80s but looks about 30. Being a Hollywood Cyborg does wonders for ageing.
  • The Only One Allowed to Defeat You: To Alucard, who considers his antithesis.
  • Perpetual Smiler: Even after his demise.
  • I Regret Nothing: "Excellent...this is exactly what I hoped my war would be."
  • Robotic Reveal: Seras blowing him in-half reveals his body is full of metal and he admits even his brain is now stored in a computer chip.
  • Rousing Speech: A remarkable villainous example.
  • Scary Shiny Glasses: Although it's scarier to show him without it. Then you see the madness in his eyes...
  • Slasher Smile: He teeth get nearly fang-like when he talks about war and killing. This gives him an intimidating aura which his fight skills certainly do not.
  • The Sociopath: Classically so. The Major is charismatic, manipulative, and wickedly intelligent, even through his batshit insanity, but is simultaneously utterly bloodthirsty and utterly devoid of anything remotely resembling empathy.
  • Take Over the World: Averted. That may have been Millennium's original goal when it was first founded, but as far as the Major is concerned, he just cares about is creating war just for the sake of war.
  • Terms of Endangerment: He refers to Integra as, "fräulein" and calls her beautiful, all in a sinisterly charming tone and at one point, in the same sentence where he describes that he causes war for no purpose other than to enjoy the slaughter it brings.
  • To Create a Playground for Evil: A playground for the Battalion to fight and to die in.
  • The Unfettered: Despite his relaxed manner, he's utterly devoted to completing his goal of starting a new war and killing Alucard. To this end he will happily shoot his own men if they disobey him and states he has no interest in living beyond completing the above ambitions.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Averted. He just grins away contentedly as everything burns around him. In the end, however, it's because he did not break down that ironically makes him even more of a lunatic, because he's convinced he's won despite Integra rightfully pointing out the flaws in his campaign.
  • Villainous Valor: See Determinator above.
  • Villainous Glutton: Any time a big conflict is going on, he's chowing down.
  • We Can Rebuild Him: Implied. A flashback shows that he was attacked by a group of Allied soldiers during World War II and left bleeding profusely until he's found by Doc. At this point we know that Doc possesses incredible surgical skills and soon find out that the Major is actually a cyborg.
  • We Have Reserves: He doesn't care how many of his soldiers die just as so long it would be a wonderful war as a result.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: In the manga.
  • Wicked Cultured:
    • His devilishly persuasive rhetoric is accentuated with references to German opera and quotes Shakespeare to provide a metaphor for his killing Alucard.
    • During the assault on London he stands atop his zeppelin to watch the carnage while throwing his arms back and forth as though he is literally conducting the bloodbath beneath him.
  • Worthy Opponent: Hellsing, who are precious to him because they're the only ones worthy enough to kill them. Much more so with Alucard though, as it's a feeling that's reciprocated. Despite thinking he's completely crazy, Alucard acknowledges that the Major has human attributes that Alucard is fond of, such as an iron will and fierce convictions (plus, having the Major around means he gets to massacre his forces all over again, and that's always fun). The Major, on the other hand, respects Alucard's power more than anyone else.
  • Xanatos Gambit: Subverted. He thinks that whether Millennium wins or loses, he'll get his krieg and a shot at taking out Alucard. Then Integra points out the flaws of his plan in a Kirk Summation fashion. He's not human and this wasn't a real war (it went down in history as a terrorist attack: The Zeppelin Incident). Alucard returns, so he never defeated him.
  • Yellow Eyes of Sneakiness: Has yellow eyes, and is The Chessmaster of the series to boot!

    The Captain

Voiced by: None

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.
  • Animalistic Abomination: His wolf form is rather similar to Alucard in battle, albeit white and blue.
  • Anti-Villain: See Even Evil Has Standards, Noble Demon and Token Good Teammate.
  • Badass: He's able to beat Walter. In Dawn, he beats Walter and Alucard at the same time. Oh, and after he kicked Alucard in half, Alucard backed down. Put it this way: if no one had the ability to regenerate in Hellsing, then The Captain would probably be the most resilient character in the series.
  • Badass Longcoat: Like Alucard and Anderson, his coat noticeably flutters around dramatically while he's kicking ass and he actually uses it in a fight with Seras, by throwing it over her and blinding her to his pistol shots.
  • Berserk Button: Barking at him like a dog, as Girlycard found out the hard way in Dawn. Particularly noticeable, considering his otherwise stoic attitude.
  • The Coats Are Off: The Captain loses his coat in the beginning of his fight with Seras, then proceeds to beat the crap out of her. He gets bonus points for wearing no shirt.
  • Dark-Skinned Blond: In the OVA.
  • Death Equals Emotion: He smiles an instant before he dies.
  • Death Seeker: During his fight against Seras, the Captain kicks a silver tooth into her hands. Pip then surmises that the Captain wants to die. This is proven further when Pip shoves the tooth into the Captain's chest; the latter could have easily transformed into mist and avoided it, but chose not to. His contented smile at his moment of death seals it.
  • The Dragon: Seras has to defeat him to be able to join Integra in the Major's command room and use her vampire strength to pick up a heavy enough gun to break his bullet-proof glass and attack him directly. Additionally, regarding official rank within the organization, only the Major is above him in authority.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: The Captain is much more chivalrous than the other members of Millennium. He shoots Heinkel non-fatally and gives her a first aid kit, then points for Integra the way to find the Major.
  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": Only known as The Captain, or in some scanlations, Hauptsturmführer.
  • Extreme Doormat: To the Major.
  • Final Boss: Seras' showdown with the Captain is the very final battle of Hellsing.
  • Go Out with a Smile: After Pip stabs him with the silver tooth.
  • I Cannot Self-Terminate: All but stated as he sets up his own Karmic Death as state below.
  • Implacable Man: Is this to Alucard's Physical God and Anderson's The Juggernaut.
  • Karmic Death: Which he purposely invoked. The Captain, a Nazi, is killed by a tooth with silver filling or silver tooth ripped from a concentration camp prisoner. He tosses it to Seras as they fight.
  • Last of His Kind: Possibly. From the Dawn, Alucard was able to identify him as neither human nor vampire and muses that he thought his kind were wiped out centuries ago.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Fast, strong, and durable in all three of his forms.
  • Made of Iron: He can regenerate wounds and appears to be immune to Walter's razor floss. He catches it in his hands in volume six without losing his fingers.
  • Mr. Fanservice: He's well-built, very handsome, and also shirtless in the fight with Seras. He's generally seen as one of the most attractive characters in the manga.
  • Nice Guy: Other than being a Nazi, there's no real indication that he's remotely a bad guy. He's very merciful, and even shares his handbook of evil after Schrödinger lost his.
  • No Shirt, Long Jacket: He's shirtless under the Badass Longcoat, as seen during his fight with Seras.
  • Noble Demon: If not for his chosen employers, he'd be one of the ethical characters.
  • No Name Given: The three "heads" of Millennium all have this going for them. Most fans refer to him as "Hans Günsche", based on his prototypical appearance in Desert SS.
  • Oh Crap!: Not even The Stoic Captain is immune when Integra unleashes Alucard's Level Zero and releases all of his familiars on both Millennium and the 9th Crusade in a tidal wave of blood. His facial expression goes from surprise to legitimate fear and panic (and he definitely wasn't alone).
  • Our Were Wolves Are Different: He's immortal for one, possesses three forms, and all of them have greater physical stats than any standard human.
  • Perpetual Frowner: The look on his face is only ever a grim stare. That is, until his dying breath.
  • Pet the Dog: Has a broken and bleeding Heinkel Wolfe at his mercy but decides against killing her, throwing her a first aid kit before leaving to go after Alucard and Seras.
  • Really 700 Years Old: He's at least 155 years old by the end and looks to be in his mid forties, which implies that werewolves in the Hellsing universe are either immortal, or incredibly long-lived.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: His eyes are always a sinister crimson but when he's fighting Seras, they actually glow menacingly and it's in this fight that we finally see just what he's capable of.
  • Silent Antagonist: He doesn't make any noise at all, not even vocal grunts. It serves to just make him more intimidating.
  • The Stoic: Never speaks a word, and only emotes twice throughout the entire series.
  • Token Good Teammate: At least, compared with the other members of the Letztes Battalion. He's the only one who doesn't seem to be malicious.
  • Token Minority: Kinda. He's the only werewolf in the entire series. In a series like this, you really think there'd be more.
  • Our Werewolves Are Different: Able to change at will into either a werewolf or dire wolf. Possibly immortal but vulnerable to silver.
  • The Voiceless: He rarely speaks during his entire appearance in the manga. He doesn't even have a voice actor in the OVA.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Silver. Well, he is a werewolf. Seriously, for all his badassery he gets killed by a single silver tooth - admittedly when it was punched directly into his chest after he's lost both his arms. And he obviously wanted it to happen.
  • Wolf Man: One 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.

  • Evil Genius: He's the one reponsible for turning the Nazi army into a Nazi Vampire army.
  • For Science!: Most likely his motive for working with Millennium. Later chapters reveal that he sincerely believes in the importance of science and is devoted to his research.
  • Handy Remote Control: What he uses to kill off some Millennium members and destroy the Jackal.
  • Herr Doktor: It is his name.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: It is one of his proudest accomplishments that destroys him in the end.
  • Mad Scientist: He is a master of biology and cybernetics and uses his scientific knowledge to support the Major's appetite for war. Revealed to be a subversion in the last episode, when he reveals that he has no interest in dying with the Last Battalion and actually hopes that his inventions will actually benefit mankind.
  • Morally Ambiguous Doctorate
  • Nightmare Fetishist: While everyone else is fleeing in horror of Alucard's true form, he reacts like a child envying his friend's fancy new toy.
  • No Name Given:
    • The three "heads" of Millennium all have this going for them. The Doctor is referred to by fans as "Avondale Napyeer"/"Alan Napier" based on his prototype in Doc's Story.
    • From his name-tag shown in Volume 3 of the Manga, his name appears to be Avondale Napyeer and is used as such by the Hellsing fanbase. The name-tag is difficult to read, however, and no official name has been given thus far.
  • The Last of These Is Not Like the Others: He is the only member of Millennium who isn't a Death Seeker.
  • Older Than They Look: How he's still alive is anyone's guess, as he's likely over a hundred years old, and hasn't aged a day from the flashbacks to 1945. He might be a cyborg like the Major.
  • Omnidisciplinary Scientist: Doc may well have a doctorate in EVERYTHING.
  • Only Sane Employee: Unlike the rest of Millennium, the Doktor has more orthodox goals, like continuing his research. He sometimes gets exasperated with his more eccentric colleagues and their antics. Considering his research will in the end benefit mankind, he is somewhat better than the rest of them. The fact that he's the Only Sane Employee while still being a Nazi scientist in a perpetually blood-stained lab coat says more about the rest of Millennium than it does about the Doktor.
  • Post-Climax Confrontation: Walter chases him down after everyone else in Millenium, including The Major, are dead. Dok gives a speach about his grand scientific ambitions, which Walter dismisses as failures before killing him. The winding down of the action parallels how concluded Dok's dreams were and that in spite of his ego, he only got to where he was under The Major's leadership.
  • Red Right Hand: He has six fingers.
  • Scary Shiny Glasses: All six lens for extra creepiness.
  • Supreme Chef: A minor example. In the middle of being attacked by Walter in The Dawn, The Major notes that everything he's eating is superb, to which the Doktor says he's not worthy of such praise, implying that he was the one who cooked it.
  • Yes-Man: "Enjoy it to the fullest, Major."
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: He frequently finishes off defeated subordinates via the remote-controlled chips in their bodies.
  • Villainous Breakdown: He quite visibly loses his composure when Walter corners him and insults both his research and the entire battalion as well as the Major's dream all in one sweeping monologue. It's actually a little amusing to watch.

    First Lieutenant Zorin Blitz

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

"These sad meat sacks are your combat elites!? God, what a joke!"

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.
  • Brawn Hilda: Has a tall, androgynous and muscular appearance, as well as somewhat conical and bulky breasts compared to the other females in the series. Pip Bernadotte calls her an "ugly dyke" several times as a insult. Bonus points in that she's from Germany.
  • The Brute: Her only smart tactic is the severe Mind Rape she inflicts on her enemy, and ultimately it's just another kind of brute force.
  • Butch Lesbian: No word on what her orientation is, but she has the appearance. In some translations Pip calls her an "ugly dyke" several times.
  • Cold-Blooded Torture: She downright pulls a Mind Rape on Seras and then horrifically mutilates her down to a T.
  • Contralto of Danger: Is easily the most dangerous of the Major's minions and even leads her own squad of troops, and of course speaks in a deep voice provided by none other than Yoko Soumi.
  • 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: Orange hair to be exact, with a fiery temper to boot.
  • Excessive Evil Eyeshadow
  • 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.
  • Hero Killer: Kills Pip Bernadotte in front of Seras. Does not go well for Zorin in the end.
  • Kick the Dog/Kick Them While They Are Down:
    • Traps one Wild Geese member in an illusion of him coming home and then slices him in half.
    • Forces Seras to relive that horrible incident from her childhood then chops off an arm and slashes her eyes out.
    • Stabs Pip from behind with her scythe and calls him "an insect."
  • 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.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain: Because she couldn't wait to attack Hellsing HQ and because she couldn't resist playing with Seras. She ends up allowing Seras to fully awaken her vampiric power. Which leads to Seras killing her and The Captain, preventing Alucards death as well as protecting Interga. Ultimately she prevented Millennium from having victory all because she couldn't sit back and wait.
  • Obviously Evil: Let's see, Ax-Crazy, Psycho for Hire, Sinister Scythe, Hero Killer and Excessive Evil Eyeshadow. Does she really look like anything else?
  • Psycho for Hire: The most unstable of the Major's minions.
  • Psycho Lesbian: Some translations have Pip calling Zorin one. She is, at the 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..."
  • Sadist: You know how sadistic someone is when they say "I love the way you SQUIRM BENEATH MY BOOT HEEL!!!!
  • 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 because of the tedious 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...
  • The Social Darwinist: To be exact, she compares anyone she kills and is about to kill to insects, in particular, gnats.
  • The Sociopath: Almost takes it to an art form.
  • 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 - they've closed in.
  • 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. It's 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 using her feet, perfectly relaxed, casually singing and loading her musket.
  • Affably Evil: Rip is basically just as crazy as everyone else in the series, but she at least manages to be bright and cheerful about it.
  • Alas, Poor Villain: Even taking into account Rip's allegiances, her death is utterly horrifying.
  • 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. Especially once you know he once wrote hentai.
  • Ax-Crazy: Again, like just about everyone else in the series.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: Clearly, olive drab just doesn't cut it for such a Cultured Badass.
  • Back for the Dead: Summoned as one of Alucard's familiars, then burns in Anderson's holy fire.
  • 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. The closest thing to an explanation anyone offers is that her bullets must be somehow "magical"; she can control where and when they strike.
  • Blood from the Mouth: Dies choking on a truly nauseating amount of blood, a logical result of having a musket buried in her chest.
  • 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.
  • 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
  • Creepy Blue Eyes: It's funny how large, cheerful blue eyes can go from innocent to terrifying on the right sort of person.
  • 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: Bizarrely enough, Rip may be Millennium's most moral commander second to the Captain. She sure doesn't like traitors who would sell out their comrades in exchange for superpowers, and quite cheerfully executes them when given the opportunity. That being said, the very first thing Millennium does onscreen is 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, and Alhambra thought he was in a fair fight, but Alucard rips them both apart. Rip knew that as soon as Alucard arrived on the ship she was as good as dead, so instead of fighting him head-on, she tried 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. In Dawn, we see a younger Rip in Millennium and where she encountered Alucard. She met him before and thus has an idea of what he's capable of.
  • 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. If you only remove the blood from this image...
  • Lady of War: A very giggly one with a questionable grasp on reality, 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, 'cause, you know, vampire.
  • Perky Female Minion
  • Pinball Projectile: Her magic bullets.
  • Psychopathic Manchild:
    • What with the color guard-esque shenanigans with her Musket, her cheerful pink alarm clock, her yellow parasol, 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 vicious child in 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, happily believing herself a "hunter" just like in her favorite opera despite knowing what happens to that hunter in the end. 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: Like everyone else who wears glasses in this series.
  • Shout-Out: Der Freischütz.
  • Slasher Smile
  • Villainous Breakdown: She starts having one when Alucard was in proximity of the ship before he even landed. Most vampires have to see Alucard actually get serious before they become aware of how completely they're screwed, but Rip had met him before years ago in Dawn. It seems he left an impression.
  • 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: Ryoko 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.

  • Absurdly Sharp Playing Cards: At one point they slice oncoming bullets.
  • Back for the Dead: He comes back only to die again in the final battle.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: He's one of the toughest of Alucard's early enemies, and impeccably dressed.
  • Bad Boss: While not their technical boss, he lets the Brazilian police be killed wantonly.
  • The Barnum: He's based on the Brazilian equivalent of this trope.
  • Batman Gambit: It didn't work, predictably.
  • Cheshire Cat Grin: He has a nearly permanent one. When he stops doing this, it's a sign of his Villainous Breakdown.
  • Climactic Battle Resurrection: Alongside Rip Van Wrinkle, he comes back in the final battle as one of Alucard's puppets.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Sent hordes and more hordes of police officers to soften Alucard and then frequently deployed magical trickery in his fight against him.
  • Consummate Liar: Feeds the police lie after lie and they bite hook, line and sinker.
  • The Dandy: Well, it's his alias.
  • Death Dealer: He's quite good at it, too.
  • Deadpan Snarker: He gets very snarky in his fight with Alucard.
  • Didn't See That Coming: It's noticeable his plan to attack Alucard failed to take into account Seras' existence, and in the end this is what derails the entire fight.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Alhambra is a jokester and very easy-going. This does nothing to hide the fact he's a ruthless vampire sending innocents to their deaths for his own gain.
  • Flechette Storm: His card attacks operate like this.
  • Fragile Speedster: He's rather quick on his feet, but once Alucard actually hits him, he goes down quickly.
  • Glass Cannon: He damaged Alucard rather severely by Alucard's own admission, but once Alucard hits him, he goes down quickly.
  • The Gambler: The only one in Hellsing.
  • Last Stand: After Alucard cripples him, he pulls out one last Ace of Spades and attacks Alucard in a manner that resembles a Last Stand.
  • Meaningful Name: "Tubalcain" was a descendant of Cain described as a weaponsmith.
  • Man of Wealth and Taste: As the suit would indicate.
  • Misplaced Accent: In the English dub he speaks with a very Hispanic (Puerto Rican, according to some sources) accent, despite being Brazilian.
  • National Stereotypes: He embodies a classic Brazilian one, the "Malandro".
  • Obviously Evil: The man's face screams treachery.
  • Sarcastic Clapping: When the crooked police gives him a status report. In-universe he tries to sell it as genuine clapping, but to the audience it's pretty obvious he's laughing inside.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: Not to Luke's extent, but still applies. He thought he was in a fair fight with Alucard. He was wrong.
  • Smug Snake: Fully believes he is going to defeat Alucard. Evidently wrong.
  • The Strategist: He at least tries to come up with a tactic to defeat Alucard by sending in cannon fodder, hoping to exhaust Alucard's ammunition and weaken him. As a tactic, it's not without merit, but he chose the wrong opponent since 1) Alucard doesn't need bullets to mess someone up, 2) he didn't at all mind the free lunch, and 3) Alhambra didn't account for Seras.
  • Super Speed: On par with even Alucard.
  • Vampire Bites Suck: They sure do when Alucard administers them. Alhumbra is destroyed via his chip as it occurs, but that doesn't stop Alucard picking up the names of his employers.
  • Villainous Breakdown: After Alucard reveals to be more resilient than he thought and Seras starts firing at him, he loses his cool demeanor.
    Alhambra: I've had enough of these pests!
  • Wall Crawl: One of his abilities.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Out of all pre-London attack Millennium officers, he gets the least screentime and characterization.
  • Worthy Opponent: Views Alucard as one at first, though as the fight proceeds he seems to change his mind.

    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 powers, 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.

  • Ambiguously Brown: Jan, made confusing by the fact that his brother Luke is really pale. Lampshaded in Hellsing Ultimate Abridged. Then again, it's never confirmed that they're blood-related.
  • Ax-Crazy: Even compared to other Hellsing characters, Jan is pretty insane. Or maybe he's just more vocal about it.
  • Back for the Dead: Luke is brought back during Alucard's battle with Walter. He doesn't last long.
  • Badass Finger Snap: Jan commands a few of the zombified troops by snapping his fingers.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: They talk a lot of smack about Hellsing, and Luke boasts that he's not like the other vampires Alucard has fought. Both of them get beaten quite soundly. They do wipe out Hellsing's main military force, but Luke didn't get the message that it was a suicide mission and actually thought they'd win. Jan, on the other hand, was perfectly fine with that, as long as he got to kill people.
  • Chew Toy: Literally, as it turns out. Luke gets eaten by Alucard's Black Dog familiar, but winds up returning when the dog gets sliced in half...which he spends in a state of abject confusion before getting painfully strung up and manipulated like a puppet by Walter against Alucard, and then dying another ignominious death as Alucard's decoy. The Major doesn't even remember his name.
  • Cold Ham: Luke is definitely hammy, but he's far more subdued about it when fighting Alucard. At first, anyway.
  • The Dandy: Luke's appearance suggests one.
  • Defiant to the End: Jan goes out by flipping the bird at Integra and calling her a bitch.
  • Dying Moment of Awesome: Jan doesn't even react to being set on fire before he blabs about the Millenium Nazis. In fact, he goes out insulting Hellsing one last time before he bites it.
  • Eaten Alive: Luke's death is being eaten by Alucard's Black Dog.
    Alucard: I'm a dog? Then you're dog food.
  • Evil Gloating: Luke talks himself up so much, Alucard actually gets annoyed when Luke's boasts turn out to be hollow. Alucard kills him extra-gruesomely for wasting his time.
  • Evil Laugh: Both brothers use this. Luke's is more of a subdued chuckle, but Jan can get really maniacal.
  • Face Death with Dignity: Exaggerated with Jan. He's downright ecstatic about going out in a blaze of glory.
  • Faux Affably Evil:
    • Jan, who happily talks and sings to himself while chopping through Hellsing soldiers and mocking their commanders while maintaining a jovial tone.
    • Luke, no such thing as an Affably Evil person who's also a Smug Snake, y'know.
  • Flipping the Bird: Jan greets (the first Integra sees from him on the video-intercom) and says goodbye (when he's remote-destroyed via his control chip) to Integra with the middle finger.
  • For the Evulz: Jan, apparently, doesn't really care who gets in his way or what happens to him, as long as he gets to incite violence.
  • Gorn: Lots of it wherever Jan goes. Luke's death involved plenty.
  • Guns Akimbo: Jan wields a huge gun in each hand and has no problems aiming or firing them.
  • Healing Factor: Luke regenerates after getting shot in the chest (by Casull in the manga) or head (by Jackal in the OVA, though it was changed to the Casull in a later release), which sets him apart from most other artificial vampires. He can't regenerate his legs after they're shot off by the Jackal, however.
  • The Hyena: Jan breaks into laughter at the slightest provocation.
  • Jerkass: Even by the standards of this series, Jan is a massive dick.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: Subverted; he calls out Integra note  for wasting money on expensive cigars, while her funding is intended to fight the supernatural... while smoking one of them.
  • Knife Nut: Luke has a very fancy one that he uses to reduce several Hellsing soldiers to ribbons. It does not, of course, do him any good at all when he goes for Alucard.
  • Konami Code: Quoth Jan:
    "Up up! Down down! Left right left right! BRINGIN' THE MOTHERFUCKIN' DEATH BY KONAMI! Ahhh, I'm so fuckin' hard right now..."
  • Large Ham: Jan is the obvious example, but Luke gets a little hammy himself when challenging Alucard. That did not end well for him.
  • Not Quite Dead: When Walter cuts apart Alucard's hellhound, Luke is accidentally revived inside the remains after his soul connection with Alucard is broken. Now stuck in the middle of a fight between the guy who killed him in the first place and another guy who suped himself up specifically to kill that guy, his little reprieve does not last.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain:
    • While they do end up biting off more than they can handle, Walter shrugging them off as barely a threat proved premature.
    • Patrick Seitz actually makes note of this when watching the OVA during the commentary, especially during the knife scene Luke has with the soldiers. He said his exact thoughts when recording the part was, "You mean I get to do something other than talk big and die like a bitch now? Awesome!"
  • Oh Crap!: When Alucard goes One-Winged Angel during his battle with Luke, Luke has an especially memorable one of these, which lasts right up until his death.
  • Pinned to the Wall: Luke, by a javelin trap in the Hellsing manor, but he slips out of his coat and retaliates before the guards can finish him.
  • Psycho for Hire: Jan has the characteristics, but they both fit. Jan just likes killing stuff, whereas Luke wants to defeat Alucard.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: They're designed to be opposites of each other, personality-wise and appearance-wise.
  • Sex Is Violence: Jan memorably declares that he's "so fucking hard" while killing some men.
  • Super Speed/Flash Step: Luke's ability, which makes him especially unique among vampires, to the point where Alucard initially says that he surpasses the highest category of vampire.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Luke is reduced to a terrified wreck once Alucard gets serious; Jan, on the other hand, is one of the three villains who retains his sanity (or lack thereof) as he dies.
  • Villainous Valor: Jan just flips off Integra when she tries to interrogate him as he dies from his chip making him go aflame. Luke tries, scraping up the last of his composure to sneer at Alucard for being Hellsing's "dog", but all he accomplishes is setting himself up for both a Pre-Mortem One-Liner and a Bond One-Liner.
  • Villain's Dying Grace: Jan decides to throw the Hellsing Organization a bone as he burns up in flames and gives them one small, yet crucial, lead: the organization's name ("Millennium").

     Letztes Battalion 
The army of 1000 artificially created vampires from Nazi Veterans.
  • Boss in Mook Clothing: Non-videogame example, among normal humans at least.
  • Death Seeker: All of them. But it had to be in war.
  • Mass "Oh, Crap!": All present have one after seeing Seras drink Pip's blood.
  • Mooks
  • Red Shirt Army: At first, no, they pretty much wipe out all of London pretty handily. After Seras and Alucard come, it's a different story.
  • Super Soldiers: They're all tech-vampires, making them much stronger, faster and harder to kill than regular humans, and can only be killed by destroying their heads or their hearts.
