---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
-- By popular request. Now updated for Don't Starve Together! -- 
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
 
Background
''Seras was a member of the D11 elite police response unit, until she was mortally wounded by Alucard in his destruction of a vampire masquerading as a priest. On the verge of death, she chose to allow Alucard to turn her into a vampire. Serving beneath Alucard, she now works for the Hellsing Organization and deals with the consequences of her decision.'' 
 
Project background and goal 
I've always liked Seras character from the Hellsing Anime, and in a game like Don't Starve where all characters seem to be going off the edge in one way or another, Seras as a reluctant human-turned-blood-sucking-monster seemed oddly fitting. I will focus on making Seras fun to play more than ''balanced'', with this meaning that playing Seras should be a different experience from playing other characters in don't starve. Playing her is meant to be challenging in its own way. 
 
Attributes 
Health: 260/60* 
Stomach: 150 
Sanity: 120 
Damage: x2.0/x0.4* 
 
*highest at night when full, lowest at day while starved. 
 
Features 
• Power changes by day/dusk/night 
• Power changes depending on hunger. Starved/hungry/full. Gets hungry faster when full. 
• Character model changes depending on power (5 models) 
• Regenerate hp at night (when not starved). 
• Night vision. 
• Sanity loss while starved. 
• Cold resistant (insulation). 
• Affected by full moon. 
• Can only eat meat-type items. Partially meaty food such as meatballs have reduced effect. 
• Takes no damage eating monster meat, but still loses sanity 
• Unique speech text. 
• Unique craftables. 
• Tweaking, polishing and extra testing. (In other words: more to come) 
 
Upcoming changes 
• More features to come soon! 
• Unique ghost 
• Currently I haven't figured out how to do custom recipe tabs, so everyone can craft the implemented unique items until then. 
 
Tips and tricks 
General survival 
1. Seras is very weak during the day, especially when hungry. Avoid all confrontation with enemies when possible during the day. Even a few frogs can be dangerous to a starved Seras during the day. 
 
2. Seras has night vision and she is extremely strong during the night as long as she is above 60 hunger. You can use this time to kill spiders, beefalo, werepigs and other dangerous opponents with relative ease. 
 
3. Caves are considered constant night, and since Seras excels at nightly adventures you should not hesitate to explore the lands underground. 
 
4. Seras' unique weapon is quite affordable and has the same power as a tentacle spike. It drains Seras own health when used though, so using it during the day or when starved is not recommended. 
 
5. You may want to sleep through the full moon. 
 
Dealing with hunger and health 
1. Seras cannot eat non-meat food, but this does not stop you from using this food as bait for tasty animals. It is a good idea to create a large number of traps with bait near rabbit holes to get a stable source of meat early on. 
 
2. Seras does not take health damage from eating damaging food. This means that spiders and the like are a passable source of meat. When you can create monster jerky and have some sanity improving clothes you can use monsters as your primary source of food. 
 
3. If Seras stomach is filled above 145 she will become somewhat more powerful but drain hunger quickly until she goes below 130. She drains hunger even faster during the day while in this state. An advantage is that she will slowly regenerate health during the evening and night while in this state. 
 
4. Seras slowly regenerates health at night while above 60 hunger. Since caves are considered constant night you can use caves to get your health up when no other health restoration is available. 
 
5. When cooking try to stick to cooking ''meaty'' recipes such as Meaty stew, Honey ham, Bacon and eggs with the crock pot. Less meaty recipes have reduced effect on Seras.

If there was Alucard as a mod, based on his abilities in Hellsing, he would be freaking OP no doubt.

True that. Full power Alucard would be really broken. I do have a few ideas for how to make it work though...  :twisted:

 

Though whether or not I'll make him or other characters depends mostly on how much people request it. Might even create Integra Hellsing herself as well if enough people want that. Search and Destroy!

Seriously my favourite character mod to date and I have been playing since DST released.

 

My only issue(s) are the art display and the text issues that myself and anyone I know personally who uses the mod has. The art itself is great, I just wish it was in the Don't Starve portrait box like every other character's is with a similar font. The text seems to have a comma "," and a period "." before certain lines of text and it bothers the hell out of me. Could you potentially fix / make those changes? She is so much fun to play (and shockingly -balanced-! :D) I just hate looking at her in the character selection screen and I know I'm not alone in that.
