I hadn't heard the theory that Mina is Integral's grandmother before, but sure, why not? First thing that pops into my head is her romance with Allan in League of Extraordinary Gentlemen... and your design of her here is reminiscent of Alan Moore's design. She's such a great character in that series. ^_^
Well, I suppose she could just be Indian, and you could chalk her hair and eyes up to anime genetics...but we've seen her father, and we know he's much paler than her, and of course his father is canonically Dutch, so there's definitely some white-person in there somewhere

how about Integra was a lot in the sun, which made her of course a little darker than her father I just always get the feeling that Hellsing genetics are only European... but then again British people love tea.. and much of it came from India >.>
Ah, but when do we ever see her in the sun? Her job means she usually has to be awake at night.
There are plenty of people living in the UK who are of Indian descent (and Middle Eastern descent, and Asian descent, and African descent, and so on). It doesn't mean they count as any less British, or can't love their country just as much. Integra doesn't have to be genetically white to be an Englishwoman through and through

and I never meant that either >.< I've never really been in England but from my experience in Germany, it's the Germans themselves that are the least patriotic (but then there is also that Nazi thing -.-) well okay, she really doesn't have to, and who in today's world has a "pure" DNA ... no one.
It's because of the Nazi thing that I think Integra's race is particularly brilliant. A big part of Hellsing is the story of a bunch of racial-purity fanatics getting their asses kicked by a mixed-race woman. Good times.
Your ldea of Mina Murray being Integras great grandmother could be very accurate. Mina did flee the land after Alucard/Draculas defeat leaving Johnathen, The idea of Alucard being drawn toward Integra may be due to the delicious scent of blood (As mentioned in the book for Mina) and her looks are very similar to Minas (as I would imagine, she would be a beautiful blonde although the movies say shes a brunnete. I would imagine Lucy as the red head who would later on be a realitive of seras XD nah, seras is a blonde, although it is hard to tell in the anime tv series. But I do like your historic Idea. However there was a fanfic that had a name for INtegras mother (Check out Gift Giving Girlycard) Thank you for posting this
