Act 1: Integra
[CHEDDAR KILLING SPREE] Arthur (thinking): Another “incident” made its way into the news…which would perhaps be less worrisome if only my dear daughter could wake up on time. [RARE BOOKS RECOVERED] [MERGERS PLANNED] Arthur: INTEGRA! Integra: Oh no! I’m going to be late again!
Integra (narrating): My name is Integra. Integra Wingates Van Helsing. Age 13. And late for school, not for the first time. I missed breakfast again, too. [TRIP] [THUD.] Integra: Ow. What did I trip on? A dog?!

Integra: Oh, it’s you. Look, Alunacard, I don’t know if I can help you. I’ve just been left in charge of Hellsing… Alunacard: I know what has happened, and you’re in danger. Here.
