Valkenhayn R. Hellsing



Valkenhayn is Rachel Alucard's butler and trusted adviser who has served the Alucard family for generations. He possesses a sharp wit and is concerned for Rachel's well-being. Valkenhayn seems to be worried about Rachel associating with things below her class (particularly Ragna, although others might apply), but he always acts in a sophisticated and gentlemanly manner. Judging from comments frequently dropped by Rachel, he seems to have once been a vigilante himself.

He seems to know of Hazama well enough to recognize him on sight, even though Terumi can change shape. He has an existing friendship with Jubei and is brave enough to attack Terumi on sight.He also seems to know Nirvana,though the relationship they share seems rather dodgey as he says to Nirvana that,"This time I am not your enemy".

Valkenhayn appears to posses the ability to teleport those that he lays his hands on. He also knows a mysterious and painful technique that helped to unlock Jin's hidden power after his abduction by Rachel in Continuum Shift. In gameplay he has the ability to turn into a wolf.

According to the BlazBlue Material Collection, he is one of the Six Heroes and an exceptionally strong fighter, although so far he hasn't been shown fighting within the series. Due to the fact that he fought alongside Jubei and Hakumen against the Black Beast, Valkenhayn must be well over 100 years old.

I thought Valkenhayn was a cool, yet somewhat simple design when he appeared in Rachel's original story mode. While there's definitely something interesting about him, I feel like I've seen this design somewhere before... which is kind of surprising considering Arc System Works' history.

The fact that he turns into a wolf is original in the fighting game world, but not really original otherwise. His moveset is interesting, yet slightly awkward, as parts of him transform into wolf parts during most attacks. On that note, I think his moveset could be a bit better, but he's definitely fleshed out for a fighting game character.
