— Rebecca to Taka in It Begins


Rebecca was a recurring character on SyFy's Van Hesling. She was portrayed by Laura Mennell.

She was a high ranking vampire that sees very little use in human life.

Character Description Edit

“Rebecca looks at humans with a detached fascination that's ALMOST as unsettling as she is. A power player in the vampire hierarchy, Rebecca is probably more trusted by her enemies than her allies.” [1]

Biography Edit

Rebecca's life prior to The Rising is currently unknown. She is said to be one of the oldest and most ruthless vampires. She has been acquainted with Dmitri for quite some time.

Season One Edit

She and Dmitri for their delivery of blood, commenting that the courier, a vampire named Bob, is late. Moments later, Bob arrives carrying a suit case with blood inside; however, Rebecca's attention is on Bob, sensing that something isn't right. Bob admits that he is sick, but Dmitri corrects him, swiftly ascertaining that Bob has become human once more. Rebecca approaches Bob in disbelief, swiping her silver bladed glove across the blood on his chin. After realizing they could have a problem on their hands, Rebecca sends another vampire, Balthazar, to find the blood donor and bring them back, dead or alive. Continue Reading Here....

As she has sex with a human lover; Rebecca is disappointed as he climaxes earlier, he insists that he can be of use to her, asking her what she wants.

As she finishes up, she hears someone moving through the vents of the room. Continue Reading Here....

She enters her office, quickly discovering that someone had recently been inside. Hearing someone crawling through the vents again, she reaches through the wall, ripping the intruder, Sheema, out and pinning her to the bed. When Sheema pleads for her life, Rebecca reveals that she recognized Sheema's scent from the last time she was in the vents. As Rebecca checks the back of her neck for a property brand, Sheema claims that she can get Rebecca anything she needs. Rebecca says she already has everything and contemplates what to do with her, wondering aloud if she should feed Sheema to her pets or experiment on her. But instead, Rebecca allows Sheema to leave, unharmed and with the plans she stole, saying she can be merciful. Continue Reading Here....

Rebecca's mercy towards Sheema turns out to be a ploy. She figures out Sheema's plan to infiltrate the Fifth National Bank and turns it into an ambush, decimating the group of humans trying to steal weapons stored in the bank. She then follows Sheema's scent to the Portland Human Resistance headquarters, where she finds Sheema tied to a table and being accused of betraying the Resistance. The vampires that accompany her kill the rest of the humans present while Rebecca interrogates Campbell, one of the Resistance leaders. She explains that she's looking for someone named Taka, and though Campbell claims that he doesn't know who she's talking about, he soon slips up, confirming Taka's existence to Rebecca. She kills Campbell and frees Sheema, telling her she would help Rebecca find the other Resistance members. Continue Reading Here....

As Sheema looks at a caged bird, Rebecca slowly approaches from behind, asking her if she likes it there and offering her the promise of a good life. She then takes Sheema to an infirmary, where Dr. Sholomenko is helping a screaming woman give birth. While they watch, Rebecca tells Sheema that though she can give centuries of life, vampires can't procreate just yet, suggesting that this was their goal. Dr. Sholomenko delivers the baby, but it is a still birth, much to Rebecca's displeasure. As doctor claims to have done everything possible, the mother begs Rebecca to spare her life. However, Rebecca signals the waiting vampires to take her away, telling Sheema that the mothers who failed her become 'feedbags'. Tired of the doctor's mistakes, she threatens to kill him then and there, but spares him when he assures her that he would learn from the experience and try again. Rebecca asks Sheema to do her bidding and not to disappoint her, or she would become a vessel to grow their experiments on. Continue Reading Here....

Realizing that she's losing the fight, Rebecca takes off but Vanessa follows behind her, in her office, Rebecca stands with her back towards Vanessa, she slowly turns around with Dylan right next to her, she has been turned into a vampire. Continue Reading Here....

Personality Edit

Rebecca appears to be very strong and independent. She is quietly sadistic and authoritative, using the threat of death and pain to get her way. She seems to take interest in the most unexpected things, such as sex with a human without self-pleasure and Sheema, whom she caught stealing from her room; however, these also indicate that Rebecca is plotting unspoken plans. She may have always intended to kill her human lover, whether or not he managed to please her. She may be performing mind games on Sheema; from letting her leave with the plans to the bank, to saving her from Campbell and offering her a better life.

Abilities Edit

Like Dmitri, Rebecca is known as one of the ancient vampires, meaning she would have all the common abilities found in vampires, consisting of advanced strength, speed and longevity. As an ancient, it is possible that she has more abilities uncommon in young vampires, but this has not been proven. However, Rebecca is extremely powerful as she was able to go toe-to-toe with Vanessa in what appeared to be a pretty even contest for a moment.
