Underworld Wiki

If you want to win this war, you will need to go farther than even a warrior of your renown has ever ventured before.

—Lena, speaking to Selene

Lena is a Nordic pure-born Vampire. She is considered the Nordic Coven’s greatest warrior and is the daughter of Vidar, the Nordic Coven’s leader. Not much is known about her past but the only bit of her past that we know is her first visit to the Sacred World, which she tells to Selene. She is one of the protagonists of Underworld: Blood Wars.


Lena was born into the Nordic Coven and is the daughter of its leader, Vidar. When she was young, her father took her to the chamber where the Vampires of her coven went through a special cocooning process that allows them to reach what they call the 'Sacred World' and gain more knowledge and abilities. Lena states she was initially skeptical, but after going to the 'Sacred World' for the first time, her eyes were opened to new possibilities and views. She has been to the 'Sacred World' many times since and has grown in power and wisdom over the years.

Underworld: Blood Wars

Lena as one of the three new Elders

Thomas sent Selene and David to visit the Nordic Coven in the north to ask her for their assistance in the war against Marius. The Nordic Coven had been staying out of the war, but Selene’s arrival brought the Nordic vampires into the war. During the attack by Marius's Army, Lena fought alongside David against several Lycans with David saving her life at one point before the Lycans ultimately retreat. Lena provided Selene with additional powers through a cocooning process used by the Nordic vampires. After reviving Selene, Selene may have given Lena some of her blood off-screen, turning her into a Vampire-Corvinus Strain Hybrid. Later, during the Eastern Coven battle, she arrived alongside Selene and other Nordic Coven's warriors and is seen fighting in the sunlight, unmasked, unlike the other Nordic Vampires. At the end of the film, she became one of the three new Vampire Elders, alongside Selene and David.


Lena at the Nordic Coven during the Lycan invasion

Lena is depicted as being a calm and wise woman who, rather surprisingly for a Vampire, seems to prefer a pacifist approach and is shown to be quite compassionate towards others, offering advice and guidance. She is intuitive and quite spiritual, holding great respect for the so-called 'Sacred World' revered by the Nordic Coven, and respecting the traditions of her people. Lena is a formidable fighter and, in spite of her generally peaceful nature, she will not shy from using violence to protect her coven if there is no other solution.

Physical Description


Lena is a relatively tall, young looking woman with pale skin, long straight white hair, and electric blue eyes. She also has tattoos on her body.


Lena wears a long white dress. She can also sometimes wears a silver breastplate, especially during combat, and a white fur-lined coat that is exclusive to the Nordic Vampires. Lena seemingly prefers to stay barefoot.



Lena and Vidar speaking with David.

Lena seems to have a positive relationship with her father. She states that as a child, she was skeptical of her father's reverence for the 'Sacred World,' but after her own eyes were opened to it, she came to greatly respect Vidar's wisdom.


Lena and Selene in the Nordic Coven.

Lena seems slightly wary of Selene at first, due to her reputation as a ruthless Death Dealer. However, after 'reading' Selene's soul, she appears to empathize with her due to her many personal losses and extends her compassion and guidance. After Selene is mortally wounded, Lena cocoons her in an apparent attempt to save her, restoring her to life and granting her new abilities. 


  • The name Lena can be the Scandinavian form of the names Elena, Helena, or Helen, which means "bright," "shining" or "the bright one."
  • It is stated that all vampires that go through the Sacred Ritual have their superhuman abilities enhanced, however, Lena is the only Nordic vampire that displayed such abilities through the Underworld: Blood Wars, possibly because she has been through the Ritual many times.
  • Lena is the only one of the new elders not to be the progeny of one of the old elders.  I.e., Selene was turned by Viktor, and David was the birth-child of Amelia (though, like all vampires, Lena is descended from Marcus).
