Sonja is a fictional character from the Underworld series of films. This character is the daughter of the vampire elder Viktor, introduced by flashback, in Underworld. She was first portrayed by Jázmin Dammak on flashback sequences of the Underworld and later by actress Rhona Mitra and Olivia Taylforth as a teen on Underworld: Rise of the Lycans.
Sonja was the daughter of the powerful vampire elder, Viktor. She fell in love with the lycan slave, Lucian, despite the fact that she knew her father would disapprove. She eventually became pregnant with his child. Soon however, Viktor found out and she was executed by exposure to sunlight, as her beloved was forced to watch. Viktor murdered her and her unborn child for breaking the Covenant. He viewed the child as an abomination and was acting to protect the vampire line's purity, though Sonja's death haunted him for the rest of his life. His guilt over this led him to spare Selene, who bore an uncanny resemblance to Sonja, from the slaughter of the rest of her family.
Sonja wore a pendant, which was given to her by her father. After her death, Lucian took that pendent as a keepsake. This pendant proved to be vitally important to the events that unfolded in Underworld: Evolution.
Her death started the war between vampires and lycans that lasted for centuries afterward.
