Group DescriptionA series of games featuring the female vampire Rayne as the protagonist.
There are some similarities between Rayne's appearance and the character Durham Red, a mutant bounty hunter with a vampiric bloodlust who appeared in the British Sci-Fi comics anthology, 2000 AD (now owned by development house Rebellion). Joe Wampole, one of the developers, posted the following reply in the BloodRayne.uk.co fan forums:
Durham Red looks like a cool character but we've never heard of her. It is coincidence that her and BloodRayne look so similar. The symbol on the hair is similar but looks more like a target, while Rayne's looks a little like Prince's symbol. Also, it looks like Durham is set in some alternate super sci-fi future. I think it is just natural to put a vamp chick in black leather and either color her hair black or redTrivia
There are three movies loosely based on the games, all directed by Uwe Boll: BloodRayne (2005), BloodRayne 2: Deliverance (2007) and BloodRayne: The Third Reich (2010). The series also spawned a comic book series.
