in 2003. Evolution continues the feud between Vampires and Lycans, but highlights glimpses of their origins some centuries ago.
The film is an immediate follow-up to Underworld
: the events of Evolution begin during the same night of the first film's finale, and ends only one night later.
What is thy will my lord?
[to Kraven, after being awakened by the blood of the lycan Singe] The blood memories of this wretched creature have shown me that your treachery knows no bounds.
Now you're being rude.
[seeing William attacked by vampires] No! Leave him be! STOP THIS, YOU'RE KILLING HIM!
Dead or alive, you will give me what I want!
[to Selene] A terrible business, the slaying of your family. Yet so much effort was used to conceal this matter from me. What do you suppose Viktor had to hide? Or perhaps, it is you Selene, as the last of your wretched family that has something to hide.
[to Marcus, referring to a destroyed village] Yet again we arrived to witness this monster's aftermath. I will not tolerate this any longer Marcus. Your brother must be stopped. It ends tonight.
Your sympathy for this beast is foolish. Your brother is entirely beyond control. It will be done my way.
[to Marcus, referring to his Lycan brother, William] Imprisonment for all eternaty. Far way from you!
