From what I’ve titled this, it sounds a bit weird, but you’ll see why i’ve named it such
As we all know, to become a monster, you must abandon your humanity. This is what Alucard did, by drinking the blood and abandoning God and himself yada yada yada:
"Vlad himself was to be executed. However, before he was beheaded, he drank of the blood from the battlefield and became a true vampire. When he accepted the powers of darkness, the silver cross he had always carried with him shattered."
Simple as it is. He wanted to live(?) no matter the circumstances, so that is what he chose. We see him straining and struggling to drink the blood, showing a sense of urgency and yearning, without hesitation.
Now tell me, doesn’t this sound familiar?:
"As he clung to life, he noticed the blood around the battlefield beginning to move towards him. From the pooling blood, a dark voice spoke to the Major, asking him to drink the blood and become an unstoppable monster. However, the Major forced the blood away from him through sheer force of will, refusing to throw away his humanity even on the brink of death."
The Major had the same opportunity as Vlad, but chose the opposite.
This is a bit odd, considering his fascination and love for vampires and chaos. Although i think i remember him saying something about humans and ‘what makes one a human’ during his death scene. From the two passages i might assume that the major could have become a vampire like Alucard. A true vampire. Not a fledgling. This also raises the question that the possibility of Alucard being the first vampire could be false, as there were other people who had a chance at immortality.
This is probably kind of dumb, but i needed to get it out of my system ;^;
I wish we knew more about how vampirism worked in the Hellsing Universe.
All we really know is there are only two ways to become a vampre- The way Alucard did (by sheer force of will with the aid of some dark power) and the way Seras did by being bitten by Alucard under the ‘right circumstances’ (being a virgin of the opposite sex.)
nonetheless your summation is correct. There are; more than likely, vampires like Alucard out there- probably the ‘Category A’ ;or perhaps something stronger, he mentions back in the beginning of the series when fighting Luke.

In order to make things easier and get more traffic, I’ll be updating the format of the blog!
Please don’t panic when you see the new name on your dash!
I’ll be waiting until after April 1st to implement the new changes.
