Selene: Whether you like it or not, you're in the middle of a war that has been raging for the better part of a thousand years. A blood feud between vampires and lycans. Werewolves.
Michael Corvin: Huh?
Selene: Consider yourself lucky. Most humans die within an hour after being bitten by a lycan or any immortal. The viruses we transmit are deadly.
Michael Corvin: So... if you bit me, what happens? I become a vampire instead?
Selene: No, you die.
Lucian: We were slaves once. The daylight guardians of the vampires. I was born into servitude. Yet I harbored them no ill will. Even took a vampire for my bride. It was forbidden, our union. Viktor feared a blending of the species. Feared it so much he killed her. His own daughter. Burnt alive for loving me. This is his war. Viktor's. And he spent the last 600 years exterminating my species.
Question: 2 questions, 1. When Nathanial (the second Vampire to die) is face to face with Raze, as Raze begins the transformation, Nathanial just stands there hissing, does he know he has no chance whilst unarmed and just tries to look as intimidating as possible, if so why did he pursue Raze to begin with, no point in suicide just to hiss at him a few times, 2. Soren and Raze have a rather obvious dislike for each other, in Underworld: Rise of the Lycans, we see Lucian being whipped by a Vampire, is this meant to be Soren? Because in the first film Soren has whips, I can't remember but I'm certain the Vampire that was torturing Lucian dies when Lucian breaks out, if so, why do Soren and Raze have a rivalry (besides the obvious war between Lycans and Vampires) and why, in this film, does Soren have whips?
