"Celebrating the female vampires that transcend the stereotype of lust-driven character motivation and prove that they are more than just their amazing boobs."No. 5 - Seras Victoria from Hellsing “Now here’s a character that I find usually doesn’t get enough credit - probably because she’s overshadowed by the more epicly awesome characters that surround her - but it’s time we give her some attention!She’s an action girl who succeeds as a vampire in the way Selene from Underworld lacks, especially in the TV series, where Seras is used as the audience’s viewpoint character. She’s new to the Hellsing Organization and [is] a new vampire, so we get to experience the struggles of being introduced to this world through her. And does she struggle! We get to see her grow from weak and frightened reluctant vampire to the ass-kicking hero who overcomes the horror of being a monster as well as the prejudice against her for being a female in the male dominated job. Neither of which are easy, and her very emotional responses to the difficulty she faces makes her relatable to the audience despite the fact that she’s a murdering, slaughtering creature of the night. Sure, she usually only kills bad guys but sometimes her vampire rage gets the better of her and then she suffers from the moral consequences at the realization of the loss of her humanity. Yeah, she’s drawn to titillate the boys in the audience and the misogyny she faces often verges on fetish territory, but as a vampire her sexuality is not a driving force. Her priorities are respect and doing what’s right for others.In her life as a cop, she was passionate about the whole serve and protect thing as a result of the wrongs that were inflicted on her in her youth. Where this might have drive more cliche vampires to become brooding emos who use their powers for revenge or just more brooding, Seras Victoria instead becomes a selfless hero while still retaining a quirky and interesting personality. How often does the emotional core of a series also be the comic relief? Seriously! Really compare her to Selene from Underworld and then try to tell me that Selene is more than just a half-baked vampire!”
