Played both a vampire elder and werewolf elder in separate movie series. In the Underworld series, he was the first werewolf who could turn from human into werewolf and back at will, leading a war against the vampire covens who had oppressed werewolves, but in the Twilight series, he was the head of a vampire coven who fought against werewolves, and the vampires who sided with them.
