Background/History: Walter is a former Hellsing field agent who now acts as Integra's butler and personal assistant. At best guess he's been associated with the Hellsing Organization his entire life, as there is a secondary Hellsing manga detailing the adventures of a 14 year-old Walter and Arucard fighting Nazis in World War II. At any rate, he's long since retired, and now works within the Hellsing mansion, seeing to the needs of Integra, Arucard, and Seras.
Walter first appears in Episode 2, Club M, and then periodically through out the series. He is shot down while piloting a helicopter in Episode 12, Total Destruction, but is seen alive and in a hospital gurney in Episode 13, Hellfire.
Personality/Motivation: Walter is invariably polite, respectful, and well-mannered, even when insulting someone like Jan Valentine. He always calls Seras "Miss Seras," while Arucard is "Mr. Arucard" (actually, in the anime, it's "Arucard-sama," showing a deference to rank and power). Much like Integra, he almost never makes jokes, unless he's alone with Arucard and/or Seras and showing them a new toy (such as their new guns in Episode 7, Duel).
For someone who talks about being retired, it is quite obvious that Walter misses field work. He virtually says as such in Episode 2 and in Episode 5, Brotherhood, and arms himself to take on the Valentine brothers' army with relish. When he does meet up with Jan Valentine, he is less than impressed with the vampire or his ghouls, and informs him that he's "...waged war against the true armies of the undead," right before wiping out a dozen or so ghouls in an eyeblink.
Walter is utterly devoted to Integra and her well being, and in Episode 12 nearly sacrifices himself to see her safe (lowering her to the ground with his monowires while the Royal Air Force kills his helicopter with holes). There is virtually nothing he won't do for her and in return, she seems to use him as more than just a butler and major domo, in may ways she is the one she can turn to in her private moment as a confidant and sympathetic ear.
Quotes: "I guess I'm not as spry as I used to be."
"The old dog and the new girl. What a team we would make."
"Miss Seras, would you please provide artillery support?"
Powers/Tactics: For a man who looks to be well over 60, Walter is very physically fit. He comments on not being as fast or spry as he used to, and then virtually teleports to avoid a burst of gunfire, making one wonder what he was like in his prime. His weapon of choice is a pair of gloves with monowires strung between (or extending from) the fingers. He can use them like a whip—slashing Jan's cigarette from his mouth, for example, or as a snare, lopping off the heads of about a dozen ghouls in one strike. He can also use them to entangle a foe, grabbing Jan's arm for example, of lowering Integra to the ground from a helicopter. In the former case, Jan's attempts to escape resulted in his arm being severed (or, more accurately, he let his arm be severed in order to escape). It is possible that Walter's Multipower needs a third slot, an Entangle, Transparent to Attack, Backlash, with the Backlash being in Killing Damage (alternatively, the Entangle has a linked Damage Shield).
Appearance: Walter is anywhere between 60 and 90 years of age, with a rough guess putting him at around 75. He has a lined face, with rich black hair. It's receding on top, while he wears it long enough to be put in a ponytail. Walter's eye's are pale blue (or gray), and he wears a monocle over his left eye (with a short chain running to a clasp on his ear. He wears gray trousers, a white long-sleeved shirt, black vest, and a red tie.
Designer's Notes: Walter in his prime must have been scary. Arucard fondly refers to him as the "Angel of Death" and shows genuine respect and liking for the man (a rare gesture to be sure). In addition to his combat powers, I am guessing he is Hellsing's resident gunsmith, as Arucard asks him about the status of the Jackal and Walter tells him to be patient. It's also Walter who gives Seras and Arucard their new guns, explaining the details of each. Of course, I could be wrong and he could just be the go-between...
Personally, I have no idea what Walter's last name is supposed to be or even how it's pronounced. My best guess is that it's supposed to be "Donaldson". Max Fauth says "Donnelly."
