He is the leader of the guardians of life assigned to protect Earth from the forces of Hell. In the modern day world, Andrew dresses as a leather-clad biker who always wears dark shades and has a handlebar mustache. He is deep, blond, and very mysterious. He is also leader of a motorcycle club known as, The War Knights. The War Knights actually help out the CIA on special assignments.

In a previous life, she was ALEXIS THE ARCHANGEL and the wife of Michael. Back then, she had much longer hair in the color brown with blue eyes that most angels have. As she was out in the sun more, her complexion was a darker flesh color as well. When she merges with her past, billions of years of fighting experience comes back to her in all forms of combat, including ways and methods forgotten by recorded history. The reason why Lena was chosen for her mission of bringing all of God's children together is even though her archangel powers give her abilities above and beyond that of any beings in her class, she uses her powers constructively to help others, rather than for their destruction.

LUKE

He is a seven hundred year old undead vampire master. He is Donna Tella's first victim and comes from her home country of Friteland (a part of the British Isles a very long time ago that vanished by witchcraft). He is looking to create a society for undead vampires apart from Danco and Donna's cult. He does not agree with their ways of violence towards other undeads.

LAMIA

She is the blood child of Satan and Lilith and the only surviving first born of the two. Out of guilt and compassion, Alexis saved Lamia as an infant from the hands of dead and brought her thousands of years into the future to Greece for safekeeping and left her in the charge of a king to raise as his own child. Her human-viper features made her a freak and she was taunted by mortals as she grew, which turned her into a monster, even before adulthood.

Only Lena / Alexis is mighty enough to beat her in battle of the three vampire-angels.

He is Charles's mortal slave and safe keeper. He is also a middle-aged man who generally wears a turtleneck sweater to cover over his bite marks of Charles feeding off of him.


FATHER DAVID

He is the only surviving priest of a church that was attacked by Lamia and Agatha. His faith saved him, as the church was actually cleansed of evil priests. He is an elderly man who is frail. Lena and Andrew came to his rescue and shielded him from harm from Lamia and Luke.


BILL DAVIS

He is an FBI agent who works out of the same office as the VSA's. Luke's cult turned him and his partner into undeads. He is in his late thirties with a burly build with dark hair.


EDWARD HOWARD

He is Bill Davis's partner who was also turned into a vampire by Luke's cult. He is a thinner man than his partner, but very athletic.


HOTEL ATTENDANT

He is the caretaker of the hotel where Bill Davis and Edward Howard became vampires. He is a frail elderly man. Lena, Andrew, and Father David later stayed at the same hotel. Lena scares him half to death by revealing to him that she is a vampire-angel who used to be Alexis. She tells him she is looking to bury Lamia again beyond the Pillars of Hercules. When the attendant goes to Lamia to report the story, she kills him out of rage.


VITA, SHAWNA, AND KOSKA

They are Lamia's evil she-devils that are half-demon and half-vampires. They dress as sexy dominatrixes and are very alluring to men. They are very deadly and feed off of human flesh and blood. Lena single-handedly beats the three of them senseless when they bring harm to her Aunt Agatha (Agatha Christian Powers). Andrew and Susan come in for backup to fend off a small army of undeads in the estate of Luke where Lamia also resides.
