About Akasha from Queen of the Damned
Akasha is the main protagonist in a 2002 horror movie Queen of the Damned, starring a fallen singer Aaliyah. Akasha is an ancient vampire queen from the forgotten kingdom named Uruk. She’s known as the first vampire, the great mother.
Her beauty was incomparable and timeless, and remains as such though when she turns into stone. Her personality, however, is dark and cruel. Akasha is selfish and has no compassion for anybody. For many vampires, she’s a true monster.
