Amelia


Amelia is a Vampire Elder of considerable age and strength. She appears in Underworld and Underworld: Evolution, and is portrayed by Hungarian supermodel and actress Zita Görög.

Amelia (portrayed by Zita Görög)
Born in the early 6th century, Amelia was most likely bitten by the first Vampire, Marcus Corvinus, to help control the chaos created by Marcus’s twin brother, William, the first Werewolf.

Amelia supported locking up William in a coffin-like prison in a remote place where Marcus could not find and release him due to William's uncontrollable rage and Marcus's inability to accept that he could not control him. The capture of William could not have happened without Amelia’s help. She became one of three Vampire Elders ruling the Vampire Coven, alongside Marcus and Viktor. She was allied with Viktor, who sought to undermine Marcus’s authority in light of Marcus's relationship with William.

During the events of Underworld, she is at the end of her century long reign, and is preparing to go into hibernation for the next two centuries as part of the Chain, which assures that only one Elder rules during each century. Having returned from New York by way of Vienna just one day before she is to awaken Marcus, Lycans ambush her and her entourage on a train they are using to get to the ceremony at the Vampire mansion. Though guards from the mansion are supposed to assist her, she has been betrayed by the Coven regent, Kraven, who struck a deal with Lycan leader Lucian to kill all three Elders and gain control of the Covens for himself. She is bled dry by Raze, a Lycan henchman, as part of Lucian's plot to turn himself into a Lycan-Vampire Hybrid.

Amelia is seen at the beginning of Underworld: Evolution in a flashback sequence depicting the capture of William, as well as current day events on board the Sancta Helena. Amelia's body is found by the Cleaners, a group of human mercenaries responsible for hiding the war between the Vampires and Lycans, and is taken to the Sancta Helena, a ship on which Alexander Corvinus, the original Immortal, resides. Alexander lays Amelia's body on a table, surrounded by the bodies of Lucian and Viktor.
