Characters of Hellsing
A powerful vampire, who for reasons unknown has chosen to work with the Hellsing Organization in their struggle to rid the world of vampires and other ghouls. His relationship with Integra is double-edged - at times he seems condescending to her, at others he respects her.
Faced with the choice of letting the Priest escape or sacrificing Seras’ normal existence, he willingly chooses to let her die and offer her a place among the undead. Why he would defend a species he clearly thinks less of is unknown.
Able to regenerate from nearly any wound, save those caused by silver, or holy artifacts, Arucard can also teleport and open up a portal to the netherworld. He may have other powers yet to be demonstrated.
Known as "Kitten" during her time with the Special Forces D11 group, this young agent has shown remarkable strength. She allows Arucard to kill and resurrect her in order to eliminate the Vampire Priest.
Despite her newfound hunger for blood, she continues to resist, despite Arucard’s insistence that she must have it. While Peter trains her for her new mission as an agent of Hellsing, she is reluctant to kill and she wonders if she will become as much a monster as the things she is forced to hunt.
Sir Integra Wingates Hellsing is the leader of the Hellsing Organization. Cool, beautiful, and quick to anger, she demands respect and complete obedience in the service of the Hellsing mission. Feared and awed by those around her, she is not hesitant about doling out reprimands - even to Arucard.
Retainer to the Hellsing family, he is utterly devoted to Integra. He shows Seras around and tries to instruct her on things she now needs to beware of, such as sunlight and silver. A kind man, he also is a confidenté of Integra, as she freely vents about confidential matters in his presence.
