Amelia is the only known female Vampire Elder in the Underworld series. She appeared briefly in Underworld and appeared in a flashback sequence in Underworld: Evolution. She is portrayed by Zita Görög.
Centuries ago, Amelia was bitten by the first vampire Markus. She was turned in order to help control the chaos created by Markus's brother William, the first lycan. William's inability to change back into human form caused trouble among the human society. William's rage could not be controlled, as the lycan virus spread across the land, it turned people into lycans or killed all in its path. Amelia had supported locking William within a coffin-like prison, in a remote place where Markus could not find him. Capture of William would not have happened without Amelia's help. She became one of the three Vampire Elders, alongside Markus and Viktor, but somewhat allied with Viktor who sought to undermine Markus' authority. She did not keep control during her last reign, allowing Lucian to work deals with Tanis for weapons to kill vampires.
During the events of Underworld, she was at the end of her century reign. The Elders had a system to organize their reign of the two great covens. Every century a different elder is awoken and reigns over the covens, while the other two remain in a sleeping state. During an elaborate ceremony the next elder is awoken with a small amount of blood from the current one, giving a detailed record of their reign and thus awakening them. Just one day before Amelia was to awaken Markus, following the order of this chain, lycans ambushed her and her entourage on the train which they took to the ceremony in the mansion. She was bled dry by a lycan henchman named Raze, in Lucian's plot to create a lycan-vampire hybrid (as Amelia put up little fight against these lycans, it appears as though she is weaker than Viktor and a lot weaker than Marcus).
