|“||Anna my love, it is your blood that will keep me beautiful, what do you think of that?||„|
|~ Aleera, servant of Count Dracula.|
Aleera was one of Dracula's Brides in Van Helsing. She was the secondary antagonist of the film.
Aleera, the youngest of the three Brides, accompanied Count Dracula to the windmill in 1887 in an attempt to rescue Frankenstein's Monster from an angry mob. As the windmill burned and collapsed, she and the other Brides cried in horror and despair as their dream of bringing their Vampire offspring to life had failed.
Aleera then attacked the village at Transylvania with the other Brides. Aleera caught Anna in the air and taunted her by asking her if she liked to fly. Aleera then went after Anna, cornered her, threw her out of the cottage, and chased after her again. Aleera and another Bride, Verona, subdued Anna and Aleera pleaded for first bite, but Verona warded her off so she could eat. Marishka was killed by Van Helsing, and Aleera and Verona felt her death and howled as they both spun around fast and transformed into their Vampire forms, flew away, and cried out Marishka's name.
They later mourned Marishka's death at Dracula's Castle and were hurt when Dracula told them that he would get a new Bride, and asked how little that he thought of them. They continued to serve him out of fear nonetheless.
When the baby vampires attacked the village, Aleera and Verona watched the scene in glee and awe. Dracula then told his Brides to teach the children how to feed and tossed them over the balcony and both screamed and they transformed into their Vampire forms and flew with the children to feed, but shrieked in horror when they started to explode before they left the scene. They mourned their deaths just like Marishka's.
Aleera then attacked Van Helsing's carriage to get Frankenstein's Monster with Verona. As the carriage started to fall from the broken bridge, Aleera and Verona flew toward the canyon and grabbed onto the carriage. Aleera then told Verona to save the creature and flew away which left her to the task, but Verona saw the carriage was empty and realized too late that it was a trap and was killed by stakes. In the morning, Aleera ambushed and kidnapped Anna, and flew away with her shrieking with delight. Later, Aleera then confronted Van Helsing as he was about to pull out a pistol, and she told him of the trouble that he was causing her Master. Aleera then told Van Helsing and Car that her Master (Dracula) had commanded a trade: the Monster for the Princess. When Van Helsing requested for a public place for the trade, Aleera said that the next night was All Hallow's Eve and told Van Helsing that her Master was throwing a wonderful masquerade ball in Budapest and gleefully flew away cackling.
After Van Helsing attacked Dracula's Castle, Aleera taunted Anna and then had her face sprayed with the viscus material which burned her face. As Anna tried to leave with Carl to save Van Helsing, Aleera grabbed Anna and told her that she couldn't leave until she said so and then said that she could go when she's dead and fought her. Aleera then blew out Anna's torch and spun around wildly and took out all of the torches, which darkened the room and ambushed Anna. Before Aleera could kill Anna, Frankenstein's Monster attacked her, which gave Anna time to escape by holding onto her legs and threw her hard against the wall. But Aleera recovered and chased Anna, pushed her hard against a wall railing, and eventually cornered her. Aleera then transformed into her Bride form and taunted Anna, by telling her that her blood would keep her beautiful and asked her what she thought of that. Suddenly, Carl threw Anna a stake and she stabbed Aleera, and told her that if she wanted to kill someone, to just do it and not stand around talking about it much to Aleera's surprise. Aleera then started to shriek as her body and beautiful pink flowing gown started to boil and puss turned into ooze and then exploded and sent the stake toward Carl and almost hit him. Aleera, the last of Dracula's Brides, was finally killed.
- Aleera said that she knew what lurked in Anna's lasting heart, to which the latter replied: "I hope you have a heart Aleera, because one day I'm going to drive a stake through it!" That was somehow funny, because Anna killed Aleera by driving a stake into her, and she exploded.
- Aleera appeared to be able to split her jaw into three mandibles. It was unknown if that was a trait in all Vampires, or if Aleera possessed that ability alone. She could also see in the dark and could see a human's beating heart and flowing blood. It could be assumed that all Vampires carried that trait.
