Main Hellsing Characters Index


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 on 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 Nazi, 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. Though he presumably has military training, he is an awful shot and has no special fighting abilities.
  • 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: He's sporting a longcoat, and although he's a terrible fighter and an even worse shot, he is a ruthless, calm and fiercely intelligent opponent and the manga's Big Bad. Hell, during the attack on London he climbs on the top of his airship to direct an imaginary orchestra, not even flinching when an attack helicopter shows up only a few feet away.
  • Baddie Flattery: He chuckles approvingly when he notes Maxwell's Riconquista forces are only going to add to the slaughter.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: Subverted. The Major died thinking he got everything he wanted and had no regrets, but the time skip reveals that his plan ultimately failed. His "war" is written off as a terrorist attack, London is on the road to recovery, and Alucard returned after three decades of killing off his familiars, and gaining Schrodinger's omnipresent powers.
  • 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.
  • Big Bad Ensemble: With Father Alexander Anderson and his army of disciples for the series.
  • Big Eater: The Major loves fine food and remarks that both in the 1940s and during the time of the manga, Walter has run into him, ruining his enjoyment of his expensive steak dinner. At another point, the Major happily devours a sausage on a bun while his men try to get him to pay attention to the immense number of casualties they're taking.
  • Blood Knight: He loves war solely for its own sake; he has nothing to prove and hopes to accomplish nothing. He just wants to fuck shit up. He even gives a five minute speech on how much and why he loves war right before he starts the attack on London. See it in its glory here. 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 to 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 fond of templing his fingers when speaking to others, showing that he is a shifty bastard.
  • Classic Villain: Wrath and Pride. He's dressed in white and is Alucard's polar opposite in every way.
  • 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, where his otherwise unremarkable blonde hair is matched by yellow eyes, befitting a relatively normal-looking man with narrative importance.
  • 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.
  • 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.
    • He actually shows disappointment when Seras can't hit him because of the bulletproof glass.
    • Later, it turns out that it's not so much that he's seeking death itself so much as A Good Way to Die. He was beaten and shot down in the street during World War II but refused to die and had Doc turn him into a cyborg instead.
  • 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 nor Anderson was 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.
  • Dragon-in-Chief: He's shown to have had a superior officer during the Nazies stint in Brazil but it's made clear The Major is the one running the show, with more knowledge of the plan and support from their followers, which he promptly uses to off his "boss".
  • Even Evil Has Standards: In spite of his villainy, he refused to become a vampire when the chance was offered to him, wanting to die as a man. Of course, he then became a cyborg instead...
  • 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.
  • 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.
    • This is ultimately averted as he was beaten and shot down during World War II but refused to die and let Doc change him into a cyborg. It's less that he's a graceful loser and more that he wants to decide how he goes out.
  • The Heavy: Aside from the Starter Villain, the Major is involved in every trial the Hellsing Organization faces. He's responsible for the creation of artificial vampires, the assault on the Hellsing manor and the attack on London. Walter's involvement with Millennium even implies that Integra's uncle who attacked her was backed by the Major.
  • Hidden Agenda Villain: While his ostensible aim is simply to wage war to the uttermost, he's really invested in destroying Alucard — no matter what it takes.
  • Hypocrite: He dislikes Alucard for his inhumanity even though he himself is a cyborg. In fact, the major's actions and words are often at odds. While he states that he wants to die in battle he would have died in World War II when he was shot and beaten by Russian soldiers. He lost but instead of dying like a soldier, he let Doc turn him into a cyborg to keep going. He wanted to make war but he just used his vampirized soldiers to attack London instead of instigating a larger-scale conflict that he could manipulate in the shadows (as it's been shown that he can get almost any corrupt a-hole in power to do what he wants on the promise of immortality). Ultimately, the Major was just a sadist that lashed out at the world spitefully while making his death a grand swan song he believed he deserved.
  • 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. When he tried to pull a You Have Failed Me by shooting one of his subordinates, despite the man standing still a few feet away, he was unable to hit him even once.
  • Karma Houdini: After all he did, the Major deserved to die at least ten times over, but this is a case where death allows him to get away with his atrocities. Upon dying, as far as he knew, he got his war, killed Alucard, and hit something for once. In killing him, he is denied seeing his plan ultimately fail in the future.
  • 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 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 Millennium to be so devoted to his plan that they will throw their lives away without question for his cause. 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 the 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 Starin German.
  • Nightmare Fetishist: Apart from his... weird... attitude to war, combat, and violence, he compliments Alucard extravagantly despite apparently finding him nauseating - as "my beautiful, dazzling Count".
  • 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 that he kept missing at the beginning, and she only needed one bullet to put him down. He's that inept at shooting. Considering what a Blood Knight he is, all this is rather ironic.
  • No-Nonsense Nemesis: Claims Integra and Seras are imperfect, inexperienced, and untested. Therefore, deserving of the same scrutiny as if they were Alucard.
  • 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.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: His only goal is to wage eternal war, which will ultimately end either if they get defeated or if humanity is wiped out by it.
  • Older Than They Look: He's in his 80s but looks about 30. Being a Hollywood Cyborg does wonders for the aging process.
  • The Only One Allowed to Defeat You: To Alucard, whom considers his antithesis.
  • Perpetual Smiler: Even after his demise, he's still smiling because he thinks he won.
  • Pet the Dog: He sincerely compliments the Doktor's cooking in the prequel, who seems delighted to receive the praise.
  • Practically Joker: He's an Ax-Crazy warmonger who's default expression appears to be a Slasher Smile, generally has a jovial attitude, derives a good deal of pleasure from his murderous actions, and is hinted to have a twisted sense of showmanship with his speeches declaring his undying love of war. He also delights in his Arch-Enemy relationship with Alucard, constantly expressing a desire to be the one to destroy him.
  • 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: ...Yes.
  • Scary Shiny Glasses: It is initially scarier to show him without the glare. Then you see the madness in his eyes...
  • Slasher Smile: His 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.
  • Soft-Spoken Sadist: When he's not hamming it up, the Major is calm and reserved.
  • 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.
  • Villain in a White Suit: 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.
  • Villainous Valor: Comes with not fearing death.
  • 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.
  • Wicked Cultured:
    • His devilishly persuasive rhetoric is accentuated with references to German opera, and he also 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.
    • Indeed, despite all the jabs he makes at the lack of humanity to Alucard, he word for word calls him a worthy opponent and an individual. He even says that he believes that Alucard would defeat Father Anderson and Walter, despite their power and he's right on both accounts.
    The Major: "He is less than a man, but also much more. A century ago, his reign of terror paralyzed London. Five hundred years ago, he held back the Ottoman Empire."
  • 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: Nonenote 

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.

  • Almighty Janitor: He is technically second-in-command of Millenium by virtue of his rank and is more than capable of overpowering the rest of his Nazi compatriots through sheer force, but he is completely deferential to the Major. What is interesting is that the Captain doesn't even display particular devotion to Millenium's ideals besides death by combat, yet stands with the Major until the very end. Given how he is constantly likened to a dog, it may be that the Captain is either incapable of or simply prefers not to take any initiative, living only to serve whatever master he is enthralled to.
  • Ambiguously Evil: He works for Millennium and formerly did for the Third Reich, but as his characterization is basically nonexistent, we never get to know the terms of his loyalty to any of them. Given that the only thing we know about his mind is his intention to die, it's entirely possible that he was somehow forced to become a Nazi against his will or that he underwent a change of heart at some point and intended to atone for his crimes.
  • Animalistic Abomination: His full werewolf form is that of a gigantic white wolf with demonic red eyes. Its sheer power is enough that a missed snap sends Seras ricocheting like a pinball.
  • The Atoner: Heavily implied, given how he all but metaphorically hands Seras a gun and tells her where to shoot him with it.
  • 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.
  • Bare-Handed Blade Block: He traps Walter's cutting wires with his hands without even losing a finger. It gets subverted a bit because he wears his uniform gloves while doing the stunt, but as they are regular gloves that get shredded while the wires only slightly cut into his fingers.
  • Berserk Button: Barking at him like a dog, as Girlycard found out the hard way in Dawn. Particularly notable, considering his otherwise stoic attitude.
  • Boomerang Bigot: In the OVA, he is dark-skinned, yet he is still part of a Nazi contingent. This gets justified to a point, though, as it can be guessed that his first employers were willing to make an exception in their racial doctrines in order to recruit a powerful being like him. Similarly, whatever the reason that linked him to them in the first place is, the Captain seems virtually indifferent to their ideological aspects: he only wants to die.
  • The Coats Are Off: The Captain loses his coat at the beginning of his fight with Seras, then proceeds to beat the crap out of her. He gets bonus points for wearing no shirt.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: He subdued a young Walter as easily a trained soldier would an actual 14-year old child. What's worse is that he didn't use any of his werewolf powers besides the standard super strength.
  • 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.
  • Demoted to Extra: In-universe example, it is likely that he was originally going to be Alucard's final opponent if Walter had not joined them since it ultimately didn't matter who fought him, as long as they challenged Alucard enough for him to drink blood again. The Major most likely decided it to be far more fitting for Walter to take final stage for maximum irony. Thus, the Captain is relegated to pointing Integra to the Major himself and he instead has Seras become his own final opponent.
  • 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.
  • Dull Surprise: Almost nothing makes him express any emotion with his face; he only reacts to very extreme events, and still in a very limited way. His default expression is so static that it remains the same even after being headbutted right on the nose in Dawn.
  • Enigmatic Minion: His past, goals, or personality, if he has any, remain unknown for the end of the series.
  • 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 (though considering that "death" was part of Major's plan, Major probably told Captain to do this).
  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": Only known as The Captain, or in some scanlations, Hauptsturmführer.
  • Extreme Doormat: He does whatever the Major commands without hesitation or comment.
  • Final Boss: Seras' showdown with the Captain is the very final battle of Hellsing alongside Alucard vs. Walter.
  • Foil: He is set up as Alucard's opposite in many ways. First off, they are both nigh-immortal legendary supernatural creatures that serve mortal masters. However, the Captain is a stoic silent Noble Demon while Alucard is a very dramatic Nominal Hero with a tendency toward monologues. Ironically, the two have very little interaction in the series proper.
    • They also dress comparably; both have Badass Longcoats complete with hats, but have opposite tastes in style. Alucard prefers red, flamboyant dusters while the Captain maintains a stern green uniform. Their hats correspond accordingly; the Captain wears an ordinary field cap while Alucard has his oversized fedora.
    • In terms of ability, the Captain forms silver mist in serious battle and Alucard generates black shadows. Alucard's true power lies in his ability to absorb and utilize the souls of those he devours, while the Captain's Super Strength and other abilities appear to be natural and completely his own.
  • Go Out with a Smile: After Pip stabs him with the silver tooth.
  • Hunk: Handsome, muscular,and manly. It goes nicely with Alucard's Tall, Dark, and Handsome and Andersen's Silver Fox.
  • I Cannot Self-Terminate: All but stated as he sets up his own Karmic Death as state below.
  • Intangible Man: Has the ability to take on an invulnerable and intangible mist-like form.
  • 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. In Dawn, Alucard identifies 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 them in his hands in volume six without losing his fingers and was shown to have done so when he first met Walter in his youth. Notable considering even Alucard in his highest restriction levels isn't immune to being sliced by them.
  • Minor Major Character: As the canonical trump card of the organization, the Captain is Millennium's answer to Alucard and Anderson, and a singles duel against any of them seemed inevitable once his role was profiled. However, he gets involved in very few fights at all, almost all of them being just minor scuffles, and never faces Alucard or Anderson in sustained combat.
  • Mr. Fanservice: He's well-built, very handsome, and also shirtless in the fight with Seras (which the OVA lovingly animates).
  • My Country, Right or Wrong: It is rather fitting the Nazis have an actual werewolf amidst their ranks given the Germanic origins of werewolf folklore. It doesn't seem the Captain has any actually loyalty to Nazi ideals, he simply exists to serve.
  • 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: Ironically, he is the only true monster in Millenium yet he is easily the most principled.
  • No Name Given: The three "heads" of Millennium all have this going for them. Interestingly, he actually does wear a dog tag, implying that he actually does have a name, but they are never shown in detail. Most fans refer to him as "Hans Günsche", based on his prototypical appearance in Desert SS.
  • OOC Is Serious Business: 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 eyes noticeably widen and he attacks with uncharacteristic aggression, indicating legitimate fear on his part.
  • Our Were Wolves Are Different: He's immortal for one, possesses three forms (human, Wolf Man, and Dire Wolf), and all of them have greater physical attributes than any standard human. Silver's still a killer, though.
  • Perpetual Expression: His only facial expression is an intense stare. That is, until his dying breath where he shows genuine joy.
  • Pet the Dog: Has a broken and bleeding Heinkel Wolfe at his mercy but decides against killing her, throwing her a first aid kit and gesturing her to stay out of the fight 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 forties at the worst, 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 pants or grunts. It serves to just make him more intimidating.
  • Silver Has Mystic Powers: 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.
  • The Stoic: Never speaks a word, and only emotes twice throughout the entire series.
  • Super Strength: He takes the cake in the series, being able to crush a steak knife into pieces with his hands, kick away armament warheads like they were soccer balls, beat a fully vampiric Seras into near submission with a few blows, and dismember Alucard with kicks alone. Notable since Anderson could only stagger Alucard with the physical strength in his punches. Given these extraordinary feats, it seems that he is the strongest character in terms of raw strength.
  • Token Good Teammate: At least, compared with the other members of the Letztes Battalion. He's the only one in Millennium 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 (though given what Alucard said in Dawn, he appears to be the Last of His Kind).
  • Twofer Token Minority: In the OVA, he is the only werewolf and one of the few dark-skinned characters in the series.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: He seems to have a more polished hand-to-hand expertise than Alucard or Anderson as seen in his kicking techniques, but he noticeably lacks their useful variety of supernatural abilities; even in spirit form, his skill set is limited to physical attacks and straight defensive tricks.
  • The Voiceless: He speaks rarely in the manga and nothing at all in the OVA. He doesn't even have a voice actor.
  • 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. While not technically The Dragon, he has been with the Major as long as the Captain has (or even longer) and he is often at the Major's side so he could be considered a different right-hand man to the Major.

  • Admiring the Abomination: His reaction to Alucard summoning every last one of his millions of familiars. See the quote above.
  • And Then What?: For all his ambitions, the Doctor did not seem have any real plans for what would happen after Mileniumn, given how he still believes that he can one day surpass Alucard. However, upon the Major's death, he is shown frantically trying to salvage his research so that he can begin anew elsewhere, which indicates a massive lack of foresight when Millenium's entire creed was simply to go out in a blaze of glory.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Exhibit A: Nazi doctor in a bellytop.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Makes a few good quips in the series.
  • Dirty Coward: After the death of the Major, Doctor attempts to run away with his research. Walter quickly puts him in his place.
  • Dragon Their Feet: Not a fighter or leader, the Doktor avoids Hellsing when they go to confront the Major and outlives his boss, for a bit, before Walter kills him and puts an end to any hope he had of continuing his research.
  • Evil Genius: He's the one responsible for turning the Nazi army into a Nazi Vampire army and most likely turning the Major into a cyborg.
  • 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: He speaks with a german accent and works all the WWII era Nazi stereotypes he can.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: It is one of his proudest accomplishments that destroys him in the end.
  • Karmic Death: Killed by one of his creations: a vampirized Walter, whom he considers to be one of his highest achievements.
  • Mad Doctor: Doctor is his title/the only name he's given and the process involved in creating the artificial vampires is implied to involve some kind of surgery.
  • Mad Scientist: He is a master of biology and cybernetics and uses his scientific knowledge to support the Major's appetite for war. Caring only for recognition and happily serving Nazis to have a group to support him, the Doctor's ego leaves him no low he won't stoop to as long as he gets to create.
  • Morally Ambiguous Doctorate: The only name he's ever given is a doctor, and he's evil as they come.
  • Narcissist: It's made clear, during his rant to Walter, that Doc thinks the world only for himself.
  • 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.
  • 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, and he doesn't appear to be a vampire unlike the rest of Millenium. He might be a cyborg like the Major, although his body seems to be mostly organic from being dismembered by Walter. It may be that he simply developed an anti-aging procedure that maintains his humanity.
  • Omnidisciplinary Scientist: Doc may well have a doctorate in EVERYTHING.
  • Post-Climax Confrontation: Walter chases him down after everyone else in Millennium, including The Major, are dead. Dok gives a speech 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, which set them on fire.
  • 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.

    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.

  • Ambiguously Gay: Flouncy, effeminate, and basically resembling Seras, which is ironic because Nazis were known for killing gay people. He also gets very excited when he's told that he'll have to share a booklet with the Captain.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: Adorable, whimsical, entirely evil and not to be overlooked.
  • Cat Boy: He has cat ears.
  • Cats Are Snarkers: As the quote above shows, he can get away with insulting the Major!
  • Cats Are Mean: He's a cat boy and a Nazi. 'Nuff said.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: Although a minor character, he's actually the key to defeating Alucard.
  • Colour-Coded for Your Convenience: Darker Yellow.
  • Death Is Cheap: He's impossible to kill. Even if you blow his brains out he'll survive and be right as rain mere seconds later.
  • Dude Looks Like a Lady: It doesn't help design-wise he is basically Seras sans the bust size.
  • Enfant Terrible: A Nazi kid who's just as sociopathic as his superiors.
  • Humanoid Abomination: A quantum theory taken in human form with cat ears.
  • Inexplicably Awesome: What's the deal with his Wrong Context Magic? Your guess is as good as ours.
  • Karma Houdini: When you get right down to it—Schrodinger physically cannot die, not even after being absorbed by Alucard, and being absorbed by Alucard resulted in an The Bad Guy Wins scenario for him.
  • Laser-Guided Tyke-Bomb: Joined Millenium as a child, and was created for the sole purpose of poisoning Alucard.
  • Man of Kryptonite: To Alucard. As the Major reveals, Schrödinger's power of existing everywhere and nowhere at least requires him to be aware of himself. When his blood is absorbed by Alucard, his awareness is lost along the three million others the vampire just absorbed, becoming connected to them all — Alucard included. He forgets where (how?) to exist, and as a result takes Alucard with him. The scariest thing is: it nearly worked. It took Alucard selectively killing off every single life he'd absorbed except Schrödinger's (who still can't be killed), a process that took three decades, to finally come back into existence.
  • Meaningful Name: His very existence is pretty much a big Shout-Out to Schrödinger's Cat. He both exists and doesn't exist at the same time.
  • Mouthy Kid: Or a Bratty Half-Pint, if you ask the Doktor. Either way, he is a font of smarty remarks to the adults of the series.
  • Mr. Fanservice: He's pretty young (or at least looks young), but it's hard to deny that he qualifies, being a sleek, feminine-looking guy who wears ridiculously short shorts and often poses himself like a female model. One scene has him lounging next to the Major's chair and flashing bedroom eyes at the camera.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: "Schrodinger" is not just a code name. Apparently, Alucard did not get the hint...
  • Negative Continuity: The in-story basis of his invulnerability is this concept. He's been shot more than once just to appear again later.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain: It may take a while, but in the very end the fact that he is completely unkillable and Alucard's only remaining familiar means that Alucard is functionally invincible when he finally manages to wrest himself back from oblivion.
  • Nightmare Fetishist: The various horrors of the Battle of London do nothing but bring a smile to his face.
  • Non-Action Guy: In spite of his Nazi background, sociopathy and innate ability that some would state is even more overpowered than Alucard's (which is saying a lot), Schrödinger never actually engages in combat. His only known weapon is a standard issue combat knife, which is only used to decapitate himself so he can be absorbed into Alucard.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: While he looks like a young boy and mostly acts as comic relief, he's certainly not one to be taken lightly. After all, he's the one to end up defeating Alucard, if only temporarily.
  • Off with His Head!: Self-inflicted.
  • Perky Female Minion: A (barely) male version.
  • Reality Warper: His powers are limited to his own existence, but he can do quite a lot with that.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Delivers a rather epic one to Zorin.
    "Every soldier dreams of leading the charge against the foe, such is their reward. But what of a lone suffering commander, what is his reward when they fail; When they go against orders, lose men and prove themselves inept?"
  • Right-Hand Cat: Played with. He is a catboy who is often seen with Major, posing.
  • Sissy Villain: Looks and acts quite effeminate and doesn't do any fighting.
  • Slasher Smile: He unleashes a nasty one upon decapitating himself. This is his killing blow to Alucard.
  • Staying Alive: The first time he gruesomely dies and nonchalantly comes back to life, it's a shocking surprise. Then he makes it his signum.
  • Taking You with Me: He cuts his own head off in order to pool into the blood of Alucard's familiars, supposedly killing them both. He was enough to take him out of the confrontaion with the Major, but it doesn't stick.
  • Uncertain Doom: His ultimate fate is left ambiguous. The Major claims that he was able to erase Alucard since Schrödinger was unable to recognize himself. However, Alucard is able to eventually restore himself into existence, meaning Schrödinger has also regained self-awareness. Given how Alucard repeats Schrödinger's Catchphrase in regards to his powers, it may be that two have now become one and the same. The OVA reinforces this point by giving Alucard Schrödinger's pink eyes.
  • Villain Teleportation:
    • One of his powers, due to the fact that he is "everywhere and nowhere" at once:
      Schrödinger: In the time it took you to walk down the hall, I went all the way to London, had a freakishly large gun shoved in my mouth, got my head blown off, and came back here.
    • He can appear inside Seras' subconscious:
      Zorin: What are you doing in here?
      Schrödinger: Don't be silly, Frau Zorin. I am everywhere and nowhere.
  • Wrong Context Magic: Seriously. Most of the power players rely on blatant supernatural powers (whether divine, demonic or whatever you consider the werewolf capabilites of the Captain are) or through an indirect source (like how Father Anderson can store multitudes of bayonettes, Zorin's dark hand eye or Rip Van Winkle's implied magical bullets.) Schrödinger though is an embodiment of a theory of quantum mechanics, making his powers unlike anything else and no explanation is ever given. It defies most supernatural styled abilties, seeming like something out of science fiction (specifically something far Soft on Mohs Scale of Science Fiction Hardness).

Millennium Vampires

    Millenium Vampires in General 
A top secret project that was started by Adolf Hitler during World War II and was headed by the Major. The purpose of the project was to create artificial vampires to act as elite troops to secure Germany's victory in the war. While the project was dealt a devastating blow by Alucard and Walter, the Major and his men were able to escape and continue their research into modern day, untill they were ready to unleash their lab made vampires onto the world.
  • Shoddy Knockoff Product: What many consider the Millenium vampires to be compared to true vampires like Alucard and Seras. The artificial vampires created by Millenium only have the enhanced physical attributes of a vampire, don't have nearly the same level of regeneration, cannot become Stronger with Age, only have the ability to make ghouls instead of other vampires, and are weaker than even a fledgling vampire like Seras. This is even further supported by the fact that they were the product of research to copy the vampiric essence left over in Mina Harker and not even the essence of a true full vampire like Alucard, thus making them like copies of a copy.
  • Your Vampires Suck: Alucard has absolutely no respect for them. In fact, he's offended that they even call themselves vampires.

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.

  • Ax-Crazy: Easily the craziest below the Major. However, he's at least calculated in his insanity. She emphatically isn't.
  • Bad Boss: She's horrible to her subordinates. Case in point, she tells them to go forward into Seras's anti-air gunfire rather than retreat, which results in her airship being shot down.
  • 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.
  • Bond Villain Stupidity: After nearly killing Seras and Pip she decides to gloat and watch them suffer, not thinking to stop Seras from taking Pip's blood.
  • Boomerang Bigot: Very much like the Captain, she is a dark-skinned Nazi, and unlike him, Zorin does enjoy being a Nazi. As for how was she recruited in the first place, it is never explained, but she might have been given free pass if she already had her dark powers before being turned into a vampire; Nazis were really interested in occultism after all.
  • 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.
  • 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: Seras literally turns her into a red smear on a wall by grinding her face into it like butter on burnt toast.
    Seras: How does it feel having someone fuck with your head?! How does it feel, you bitch?!"
  • Dark Action Girl: More brutish than Rip Van Winkle.
  • Dark-Skinned Redhead: Brownish skin and orange hair.
  • Death by Irony: She threatened to paint the walls with Seras' blood. Guess how she dies.
  • Evil Gloating: Engages in taunts and vicious celebration often.
  • Evil Redhead: Orange hair to be exact, with a fiery temper to boot.
  • Expy: Of the villainous Canon Foreigner Incognito from the first Hellsing anime, if not closely, at least overall. Aside from both serving Millennium (or the organization's stand-in in Incognito's case), they are both androgynous people with stylized bodies, vaguely African features, green eyes, a large imposing weapon and a set of arcane tattoos in one side of their faces. Also, just like Incognito has a strange and apparently supernatural lidless eye, Zorin has a supernatural eye in her palm.
  • Eyes Do Not Belong There: She has one on the palm of her right hand.
  • Fatal Flaw: Her recklessness and cruelty. Had Zorin just heeded to the Major's orders and not hastily invade the Hellsing manor, Millennium would have had a much better shot at succeeding as Seras would never have had the opportunity to awaken her vampiric power and thus overpower the troops.
  • Hate Sink: Zorin is an incompetent, vile military commander in contrast to the despicable but brilliant Major and cements her loathsomeness in her callous mistreatment of her men and use of her psychic abilities to leave her enemies in mental anguish and helpless as she slashes through swathes of the Wild Geese, completely lacking in any intelligence or admirable traits to offset her nature. Her brutal death at the hands of Seras is very well-deserved.
  • Hero Killer: Kills Pip Bernadotte in front of Seras.
  • Hoist by Her Own Petard: She disobeys a direct order to not attack Hellsing. The events that follow, including her murder of Pip Bernadette, end up causing Seras to become a full vampire and brutally ending her in one of the most iconic scenes of the series.
  • Humans Are Insects: She firmly believes in this, even going as far as to compare humans to insects.
  • Karmic Death: Zorin is killed by Seras Victoria, the very person she sought to target and kill. It becomes even more karmic as her wasting time gloating after having mutilated Seras and killed Pip gave her the opportunity to drink his (whom she just killed earlier and mocked his death as being in vain) blood and become a full-fledged vampire, obliterating her forces and then herself, and that she wanted to paint the Hellsing Manor in Seras's blood, only for the inverse to happen. To top the cherry on the karmic cake, just as how Zorin destroys people's minds with her illusion magic, Seras literally destroys her mind by grinding her head to a wall at full speed. Her Pre-Mortem One-Liner to Zorin as she kills her says it best:
    "How does it feel having someone fuck with your head!? HOW DOES IT FEEL, YOU BITCH!?"
  • Kick the Dog: Pretty much everything she does is in the Hellsing Manor is to demonstrate how petty and wicked she is.
    • Traps one Wild Geese member in an illusion of him coming home with dead daughter (even though he knew well that she's dead and thus it's an illusion) and then gleefully slices him in half.
    • Forces Seras to relive that horrible incident from her childhood and then mutilates her by chopping her left arm off and slashing her eyes.
    • Brutally stuffs Pip into the fridge by stabbing him from behind with her scythe and then mocks his death by calling him "an insect" in front of a grieving Seras.
  • Kick Them While They Are Down: Her specialty. Zorin uses her illusion powers to confuse and mentally break her enemies before killing them in horrific ways.
  • Lady Looks Like a Dude: She's got a very masculine appearance and is extremely aggressive.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: The Major specifically orders her not to attack Hellsing HQ due to Integra and Seras being incalculable variables and thus deserving of the same scrutiny as Alucard. 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 is to force her away into her victim's mind and scramble it with fear and confusion.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain: Because she couldn't wait to attack Hellsing HQ before the main troops arrived 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 Alucard's death as well as protecting Integra. 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: Her Weapon of Choice highlights how much she loves spreading death.
  • 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. Ironically, Schrodinger compares Zorin's death to that of an insect's.
  • The Sociopath: A classic example of a low-functioning type. She's sadistic, arrogant, completely devoid of empathy and takes extreme pleasure in breaking her victims' psyches before horribly breaking them physically.
  • 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, thus giving her forces time to figure out where the mines are and bypass them. Seras manages snap them out of it, but the time she does it's too late - they've closed in. Then she turned out to be this for Millenniun, as well. Her impatience and rash tactics led to her losing at least a third of Millennium's forces, most of which didn't even survive the initial destruction of their Zeppelin. She then continues to goad Seras, until she finally awakens her vampiric power and literally wipes the floor with her until she's reduced to a red smear on the wall.
  • Stupid Evil: She put so much effort into being a vicious sadist that she blatantly refuses to listen to the Major when he specifically told her not to attack the Hellsing HQ without reinforcements (believing that her Vanguard alone can handle the job) as Seras and Integra are untested variables and thus deserve the same scrutiny as Alucard, and spends her time gloating after having killed Pip, failing to stop Seras from drinking his blood and becoming a full-fledged vampire. When she's called out on her disobedience by the Major via Schrodinger, he chooses to let Seras eviscerate her, not even giving her a dignified death with a suicide chip activation, for being such a moron.
  • Suicidal Overconfidence: She thinks that her vanguard is enough to take Hellsing HQ without reinforcements. She is very, very wrong.
  • Tattooed Crook: The tattoos activate a very visual illusion.
  • Third Eye: Given that the eye on her palm activates whenever she activates her Mind Rape powers.
  • Too Dumb to Live: She explicitly disobeys orders from The Major to not attack Hellsing HQ due to Integra and Seras being incalculable variables and thus deserving of the same scrutiny as Alucard. While her attack does end up killing Pip and almost all of the Geese, she proceeds to gloat and mock Pip's death as being in vain instead of finishing the job; this only infuriates Seras, who drinks his blood and becomes a true vampire. Seras then proceeds to use the power that Zorin inadvertently granted to her by murdering Pip to brutally and viciously destroy her. The Major doesn't even dignify Zorin with a suicide chip activation because of how badly she fucked up by disobeying him.
  • Underestimating Badassery: 99% of her characterization is depicted as essentially getting overconfident and getting her ass kicked as a result. When the Major tells her not to take Seras lightly, Seras blows up her zeppelin. When she's told not to charge Hellsing manor, she does so and loses 80% of her forces against Pip's traps. And then there's her calling Pip a gnat as she kills him.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: Zorin largely relies on her illusion powers to do the work for her. However, once Seras dispels her illusions, Zorin is unable to do anything and ultimately gets the floor wiped by her.
  • Villainous Breakdown: Gets one when Seras regains her strength from drinking Pip's blood and decimates her men, and it gets worse when she fails to Mind Rape her due to her having Pip's soul.
  • You Have Failed Me: The Major lets Seras brutally murder Zorin for disobeying orders. Normally he would have activated her chip long before then, but he and the Doktor were busy dealing with "a new toy"(implied to be Walter), so he just lets Seras mop the floor (er, wall) with her instead.

    First Lieutenant Rip Van Winkle 

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 Freischuetz; 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".
  • 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.
  • The Bait: Rip's role in the Major's Evil Plan was basically to draw Alucard away from London and trap him aboard the ship she commandeered using his weakness for running water. The Abridged Series makes this explicit by calling this part of the Major's plan "Operation Bait Van Winkle."
  • 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.
  • Catchphrase:
    • Varies by translation, but it's usually something along the lines of "Tinker, tailor, soldier, sailor, my bullet punishes all without distinction". As well as her rendition of "O diese Sonne".
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: She's uncomfortably jovial and childish for a Nazi and she sings Der Freischütz while shooting down incoming fighter-bombers with absolute glee.
  • Creepy Blue Eyes: It's funny how large, cheerful blue eyes can go from innocent to terrifying on the right sort of person.
  • Cute and Psycho: An attractive, bespectacled young woman, who merrily sings opera while killing enemy soldiers.
  • Cute Monster Girl: A cute vampire woman, to be precise.
  • Dark Action Girl: Less brutish than Zorin, but still a force to be reckoned with.
  • 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.
  • Gender Flip: Unlike the traditionally male Rip Van Winkle, this one is depicted as a young-looking woman.
  • Glass Cannon: Her sniping skills and magic bullets make her a devastating ranged opponent, but otherwise is rather defenseless in close quarters and in comparison to those before her was beaten down rather easily.
  • Handy Feet: She has shown to use her feet in various ways, such as piloting a helicopter or to hold her musket to aim.
  • 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 supposedly have magic redirection features.
  • Hypocrite: She gleefully executes a trio of British turncoats for handing an aircraft carrier over to her, citing that they betrayed their comrades to do it. This is mere hours after she helped The Major murder some aging senior SS-officers after stringing them along with (false) promises to turn them into vampires in exchange for their financial support.
  • Pinball Projectile: Her magic bullets can bounce off objects and other things that would imply magic.
  • 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 She is noticeably tall yet her hair still reaches her feet.
  • Rewarded as a Traitor Deserves: The crew of the ship she captured helped her do it in exchange for vampire transformation. She gave them speeding bullets instead. See Even Evil Has Standards and Exact Words.
  • Scary Shiny Glasses: Like everyone else who wears glasses in this series, they produce glare at dramatic occasions.
  • Shout-Out: To Der Freischütz, which supplied the idea for her fantastic bullets, and gets referenced in dialogue.
  • Slasher Smile: When comes the time to go for the kill, her smile turns into this.
  • Villainous Breakdown: She starts having one when Alucard is in proximity of the ship before he even lands. Most vampires have to see Alucard actually get serious before they become aware of how completely screwed they are, but Rip had met him before years ago in Dawn. It seems he left an impression, because she spends the entire "fight" with him scared out of her mind.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Exaggerated. Van Winkle is utterly terrified of Alucard, who she equates with Zemiel the Black Huntsman who kills Kaspar at the end of Der Freischütz. Just sensing Alucard's approach is enough to bring her to her knees and go into a panic.
  • 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.

"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 Blade: His cards are this. 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.
  • Cards of Power: His weapon of choice are magical playing cards. He can use them to seemingly teleport or at least disguise his movements and serve as powerful cutting weapons, capable of slicing bullets. Apparently, their magical capabilities also disable or at least heavily hinder Alucard's regenerative abilities (as Alucard mentions he hasn't stopped bleeding or recovered) and they can be used defensively when Seras unexpectedly begins shooting at him, using the cards to block the bullets.
  • 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 (especially since how the cards are able to disable Alucard's regenerative abilities), 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".
  • Ninja Log: During their fight, Alhambra create a duplicate of himself made of cards to distract Alucard.
  • 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.

    Jan and Luke Valentine 

The Valentine Brothers

Voiced by: Takehito Koyasu (Luke, JP) and Wataru Takagi (Jan, JP), Patrick Seitz (Luke, EN) and Josh Philips (Jan, EN), Rubén Leon (Jan, spanish, first series)

"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.

  • Affably Evil: Luke, compared to his brother Jan. He holds himself with very cold confidence and has a civil conversation with Alucard before they both try to kill one another.
  • 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.
  • Break Them by Talking: Luke tries to pin one on Alucard, labeling him as a servant to the Hellsing family, but Alucard won't hear any of it.
    Luke: SHUT UP! You're nothing but the Hellsing Family Toy! A dog for the Church of England not even fit to call himself a vampire! A puppet-
    Alucard: SILENCE!
  • Death Seeker: Jan. He seemed way more of a "true" Nazi than Luke. Jan dose't care if he lives or dies. Luke on the other hand, ran away like a coward, angering Alucard.
  • 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.
  • Cluster F-Bomb: Jan's such a pottymouth he can't go two sentences without spewing F-bombs and other curse words.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Hate Sink: Luke. Unlike Jan who is clearly Laughably Evil, Luke is a bonafide Smug Snake with a massive ego, which makes Alucard's and even the author's treatment of him all the more satisfying.
  • 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. Jan also has one, when he reaches the round table, and they all point guns at him, having expected him.
    Integra: You made it... Congratulations.
    Jan: Oh, fuck me.
  • 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.
  • Siblings in Crime: Jan and Luke are Nazi vampire brothers.
  • Sir Swears-a-Lot: Jan drops F-bombs in just about every sentence he says. He's only in one episode of the OVA, and yet he curses more than anyone else in the entire series.
  • Smug Snake: Luke brags to Alucard that "I was born to be your death!" Given that he gets Eaten Alive, apparently not. Jan also has a big mouth and a lot of talk that he can't back up, relying on his ghouls to do everything. He's fine and all cocky killing normal humans, but quickly realizes how much shit he's in when he comes across Walter and Seras, and even more so when he bursts into the council room and finds twelve guns pointed at him.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: Luke. Alucard puts him in his place.
  • Stoic Spectacles: Luke, who is far more stoic and composed than his wild brother.
  • 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.
  • Underestimating Badassery: Luke boasts that he's stronger than any vampire to Alucard, and were Alucard any other vampire, he'd be right. He never anticipated fighting something that is less a vampire than an Eldritch Abomination in the form of one, which gets him rather brutally killed.
  • Villain in a White Suit: Luke is evil and wears a white suit.
  • 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").
  • Worthy Opponent: Subverted with Luke Valentine. During his encounter with Alucard, he boasts about his vampiric abilities and skills which impresses Alucard. However, when things get serious, Luke is horrified by Alucard's true power and tries to flee. Realizing he had been overestimating his opponent, Alucard withdraws any respect he had for Luke Valentine before feeding him to his Black Hound familiar.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Jan already knows that his superiors can execute him via chip should he fail. He takes this in stride very well.

    Letztes Battalion 

Letztes Battalion

The army of 1000 artificially created vampires from Nazi Veterans.

  • Badass Army: An army made up of vampires immune to ordinary bullets.
  • 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: At first, no, they pretty much wipe out all of London pretty handily. After Seras and Alucard come, it's a different story.
  • Normal Fish in a Tiny Pond: While they're fearsome monsters compared to humans and standard peacekeeping forces, as vampires they're sub-par. At best they only have the abilities of a fledgling vampire and not even the same level of strength. They can butcher a city of normal humans, no problem, but against real vampires they're mooks at best or Made of Plasticine at worst.
  • 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.
  • Would Hit a Girl: Not just hit them. But shoot them, torture them, and let them be doomed as Ghouls.
  • Would Hurt a Child: They killed everyone in London, and one is seen with a dead baby in his mouth.
