Selene As a Death Dealer, (the Vampires' fighting elite), Selene committed herself to the duty of exterminating the Lycans as a species, burying herself into her work. She would also isolate herself, never socializing with anyone outside of the Death Dealers, as the majority of the Vampire Coven are more concerned whiling away their immortal lives in hedonistic pursuits instead of concerning themselves with the serious business of the war against the Lycans. She would also serve as one of Viktor's most loyal and most powerful Death Dealers, having been vampirically sired by him personally. While she would look up to Viktor as a surrogate father-figure, (and he-her a surrogate-daughter), she would still continue to feel the pain of her grief and loss of her family's deaths in the centuries to come.
