Ten years ago, young Integra Hellsing ascended to the head of the Hellsing Organization after the death of her father Arthur. Her jealous uncle Richard Hellsing attempted to kill her, but in the process awakened a dormant Alucard, who proceeded to kill Richard's men. It is Integra who shoots and kills her uncle, thereby becoming the last descendant of the Hellsing bloodline. Alucard declared his allegiance to Integra and become her loyal servant. In present day England, Alucard is called to duty to eradicate a vampire and his ghouls. However, a police girl named Seras Victoria is gravely injured in the process, and upon her saying she's a virgin, Alucard turns her into his vampire servant. Later, on a mission to hunt down a vampire in the town of Badrick in Nothern Ireland, Alucard meets and fights Father Alexander Anderson for the first time.
