History

Alexander Anderson
Alexander Anderson

A Catholic priest who teaches at an orphanage no one is sure of his true age and his history (apparently this is explained to us in Angel Dust) it is safe to assume he was born in Ireland and has been a member of Iscariot since childhood. We are also shown it was Anderson who brought up Enrico Maxwell at the same orphanage he still teaches at Anderson tried to assuage Maxwell's ambitions and thirst for recognition into more positive channels; unfortunately, he spectacularly failed at this attempt. Other orphans under his care were Heinkel Wolfe and Yumie/Yumiko Takagi. .

Meeting Alucard

Integra Hellsing
Integra Hellsing

About thirty years later we see Anderson looking the same as he did back when Enrico was a child and he is approached by Father Renaldo to deal with a vampire in the protestant Northern Ireland. Taking the job Anderson does away with the vampire only to be faced by two members of the Hellsing organisation, Alucard and Seras Victoria. At first he stops them from exiting the build with holy seals and stabs Seras in the chest with one of his blessed bayonets that give him his nick name of Bayonet Anderson. At this point he is faces with Alucard who shoots Anderson in the forehead. When seeing to Seras Alucard lets his guard down and we discover that Anderson is in fact a powerful regenerator and Iscariots equivalent to Alucard. A fight breaks out between the two that ends with Anderson beheading the vampire and laughing maniacal as he approaches Seras only to be stopped by Sir Integra Hellsing herself. After quickly defeating her two guards he stands face to face with the woman he refers to as Babylon and just as he looks like he is about to win, Integra tells him of Alucard and how he had already started to heal, he was like no other vampire Anderson had faced. Upon the discovery of this news Anderson retreats swearing he will butcher all of them on his return.

The Rival's Second Meeting

Meeting Again
Meeting Again

The two would meet again this time under a flag of peace as Integra called a meeting with Enrico to find out who was behind the attack on the Hellsing manor. During the talks Enrico insults integra and Alucard appears in front of him at the same time Anderson appears at Enricos side, both dying to fight the other only to be interrupted by a group of tourist lead by Seras at the museum where the meeting was taking place. Almost in an instant Anderson demeanor changes and they leave. Once again the two meet as Anderson delivers a note with details of the Millennium organization that leads to a small but uneventful trade of words between Alucard and Anderson.

The Cries of War

The war on London starts as Millennium lead by Major Monntana Max descends upon the streets unleashing his vampire and werewolf battalion on the innocents below. Alucard is returning to London by his own means as Seras protects the Hellsing Manor, Walter is faced by The Captain leaving Sir Integra to fend for herself on the streets. Anderson is sent with a small group of Iscariot preist to capture Integra. After saving her from a small group of Nazi Vampires, Heinkel Wolfe attempts to capture her and Integra addresses Anderson and ask if this is allowed, Anderson says it is not and orders the rest of Iscariot to lead Integra back to the Hellsing manor. Moments after this Enrico orders the large armies that came to aid in the fight against the vampires to kill all the heretics upon hearing Enricos words Anderson disagree believing that Enrico has gone mad with power he leaves his post and Enrico is killed shortly after. Anderson is then faced with the Iscariots who have now been ordered to take Integra as a prisoner of war. Disagreeing Anderson prepares to fight them only to be interrupted by A newly powered Seras Victoria and tells the rest of Iscariot not to fight her they would have no hope of winning against her now and he leaves.

realist it is now the time to finish the vampire and the battle begins, Alucard pulls out a large black pistol that he had not used before called the Jackal blowing off Anderson left arm, Anderson is surprised when he does not regenerate straight away. Taunting the priest Anderson goes feral and charges head first into Alucards familiars using one of his most powerful attacks he is still over run and left for dead.Saved by Heinkel Wolfe and her partner Yumie, Anderson regenerates and once again goes of to face the vampire. This time he confronts Alucard and shows him a weapon given to him by Section XIII Matthew had given him Helena’s nail . Alucard knows what the nail will do and tells Anderson not t become a monster like he is. But Anderson stabs himself in the heart with the weapon and with his new powers almost kills Alucard before Seras stops the attacks just long enough for Alucard to regain his strength and after a display of massive power rips the Nail along with Anderson still beating heart. As Anderson lays dying he speaks a last few words of pity to Alucard and passes away and turns to ash. Then Walter appears stepping on Andersen's remains and saids that trash should not be missed yumie tries to fight walter but she was killed by the new angel of death.Anderson was mentioned by Alucard while fighting Walter saying that if Anderson couldn't beat then a brat like Walter couldn't beat him.The only thing that remains of Anderson is his Bayonets and it was seen later on along with many others who died.

Weapons.

Bayonet Anderson
Bayonet Anderson
  • Bayonets: he uses blessed bayonets yo fight up close and can also throw them with alarming accuracy The bayonets seem to have different levels of blessing ranging from simple (able to just hurt a vampire and up to cutting vampires down in a single blow and ones that can blow up, Which he uses to mass effect during the London attack. He can throw more then 9 at a time and seem to be able to control them afterward. Much like Rip Van Winkle can control her bullets. Iscariot must issue Anderson with these weapons as he seems never to run out.
  • Holy Barriers & Consecration: Anderson can affix pages of scripture onto the walls of a building, in order to create a barrier that Vampires can not cross or exit, But a normal human can cross the fresh hold with out much worry it is unsure if these barriers only work on nonhuman's., The Barries are powerful enough to hold Alucard with in the building and to stop Seras from escaping. We only see the barries used once so it is unkown how strong they actually are and what else they can be used for/ Also Anderson has be shown that he can use Bible pages to teleport almost in an instant it is not sure how far he can teleport, though how far he can travel has not been made official.
Regeneration

Anderson transformed by The Nail
Anderson transformed by The Nail
  • The Nail: Helena's Nail is the last resort in Anderson arsenal, It is a Nail from Christ cross found by Constantine's mother Helena.When fighting Alucard for the last time Anderson rammed the thorn into his heart creating as Alucard put it a monster of god. The Nail seemed to give Anderson power to match Alucards Providing him with power over what seemed like holy vines of thorns these vines can wrap themselves around his foes and cause injury, and instantly ignite all things unholy or satanic, causing them to erupt in flames, The thorns also seem to regenerate any part of Anderson body and provide him with a shield able to block bullets from alucards most powerful gun Anderson's. The thorns almost transformed Anderson complete into some type of thorn monster, It is believed that the thorns where a nod to the crown of god.
    • Regeneration: Anderson is classified as a re generator, A human who was breed by the church to fight vampires. Knowing a normal man would not stand a chance through magic and holy items regenerators were born from nanotechnology and artificial enhancements almost like a cyborg due to his artificial parts able to re-grow body parts and heal quickly from minor injuries or bullets wounds the regenerators are very rare and perhaps one of the best weapons against vampire kind. Alucard is surprised when he learns what Anderson is can considers him a worthy opponent. His power also prevents him from aging.

Notable Relationships.

The Vampire Alucard
The Vampire Alucard

Alucard and Anderson

The two meet in battle more than once, They seem to share a kindred spirit. From each battle we see them fight with fierce abilities. But at the end no matter who wins, I have noticed that they always leave the battlefield with a smile. I believe this is because they both in some way wish for death and enjoy a great battle where the outcome is never certain. This is proven when Anderson is killed after the nail had been removed from his heart, Alucard says he would have been happy to die at the hands of Anderson if he was human. The priest replies telling Alucard that he pities the monster he is, As he will never know death and Alucard says Amen.

Maxwell and besides him Heinkel and Yumie as children
Maxwell and besides him Heinkel and Yumie as children

Their battles have captured the imagination of each reader, the first battle we see Anderson regeneration powers and he then goes on to behead Alucard and is told of Alucard’s true power. The two meet again and a battle is about to break out but it is stopped. You can see the blood lust between the two of them, But the battle never happens. They do not fear each other and seem willing to do anything to fight and push themselves to the limit. The only thing able to stop them is their masters.

Anderson's relationships chiefly include those with his Iscariot comrades, with Maxwell. With other Iscariots, he is a model to follow, almost like a father; this is made more patent due to the fact some of them used to be his own wards at St. Ferdinand's. With Maxwell, he is tense and restless, as the man was not the best example of Christian virtues; while his fanaticism equaled Anderson's, his need for revenge and petty comebacks irritated Anderson to the point he refused to follow Maxwell's commands, and, ultimately identifying him with a mad dog, he allowed Alucard's familiars to kill him to stop him. Lamenting his own failure at correcting his moral flaws, he came with some regret over his death, but chose to use it to fuel his final fight against Alucard.

With Alucard, the relationship grows more complex. Both are warriors in need of a worthy enemy, finding it on each other. Both desired a great fight; moreso in Alucard's case, as he wanted a human such as Anderson to stop him to bring an end to his existence, but upon Anderson's acceptance of the Nail, he becomes a monster of God. Thence, he became nothing more than another monster in the eyes of Alucard, and loses the chance to kill him; as Alucard puts it: "only humans can kill monsters". Alucard genuinely mourns Anderson, and several times called him "beloved foe", referencing their need for each other; both provided a sort of counterbalance to each other, and based upon this, formed an odd sort of rivarly-based friendship; while both claimed to hate each other, they learnt to respect and understand the other.

As for his relationship with Seras, he at first saw her as an annoyance, an obstacle in his path against the Vampire King. However, as time passed, Seras became stronger, and at London's Final Night, Seras surprised him with her transition into a full vampire. Anderson clearly saw her as another worthy foe upon seeing her willingness to fight for what she believed in and her strength of character. Integra he at first hates; both as a Protestant and as the leader of Iscariot's main rival in England. In time, as with the other characters, he ends up understanding and respecting her position, even defending her from his own men and offering to take her to her mansion. Anderson, again, saw the moral strength of Integra compared to Maxwell's, and chose to defy orders to give her a chance of striking back at Millennium. Thus, he ended up being one of the most glorious martyrs of humanity's fight against the vampire threat of Millennium, and was still remembered thirty years into the future in the future Iscariot.

In the Hellsing TV series, Anderson is less of the complex assassin of the manga and OVA, and more of a fanatical killer with an intense desire to kill Alucard for good. His strength is also considerable, as is the resistance of his bayonets; he is seen almost effortlessly slicing apart a subway train; another ability his counterparts lack is a special Bible whose pages scatter when damaged, wrapping around vampires and binding them so as to provide easier targets. He confronted Alucard twice, once removed out of the country by express wish of the Archbishop of Canterbury, and was present at London as Incognito's force attempted to destroy Hellsing by assaulting the Tower of London.
