Jon: Are you…an angel?
Nurse Seras, from the lost Shine storyline, finally gets a proper appearance. Seras: Well, aren’t you sweet! Welcome back to the land of the living, Mr. Stewart.
Based on Alucard’s dashing pose in the frontispiece of Hellsing volume 3 chapter 2 (Elevator Action 1). Well, Land Of The Mostly-Living…
Jon: Where am I…? Seras: You’re in a medical facility. Please try to hold still. You don’t want to rip out your IV. Jon: Ngh…You’re dosing me? Seras: It’s just a transfusion. Lots of fluid. Essential nutrients. Were you aware that you have severe anemia? Jon: Oh, right…that. Yeah, the doctor keeps upping my iron… Continue reading Chapter 4 Page 04
The paper pinned over the door is a barrier, like the ones Anderson throws around.

For the most part, the general population thinks of her as a kind of icon,… Continue reading Chapter 4 Page 07
Jon: Hellsing’s pet vampire. Seras: “Employee” vampire, please. I’m under voluntary contract only. Jon: Uh, right…You made Stephen drop me! While we were hundreds of stories from the ground! Seras: Oh, good, you remember! I really am sorry about that. I did catch you, though. Frankly… …you were in much more danger from the ongoing… Continue reading Chapter 4 Page 08
Like most of the general public, Jon is under the impression that Seras is an ancient inhuman creature who operates on her own unknowable logic and does not comprehend the ways of mortals.

After ’99, even the Vatican respects this particular rule. (It helps that the current head of Section XIII is more reasonable than Maxwell.) When they discover that a vampire target is working with a human, they halt all operations and call in the Protestants. Of course, most of the Iscariots are still not thrilled about… Continue reading Chapter 4 Page 10
