Humans are a species of mortals seen in the Underworld films. The series portrays them as living creatures that were previously unaware of the war between the Vampires and Lycans. The humans only play a large role in Underworld: Awakening, though they are seen throughout the series.
Over the years, humans have mostly avoided the Immortal species, mostly believing that Vampires and Lycans (Werewolves) were just stories and not real. But most humans that do encounter specimens, and aware of their true natures, end up becoming either one or dying.
In the past, vampires Death Dealers have been known to sell out their services to wealthy humans in exchange for protection against the werewolves, maintaining a fairly amiable relationship between the species. However, given that Vampires are nocturnal, they don't trust mortals enough to act as their daylight guardians—their apparent mortality being a discounting factor to their credibility as guardians for their immortal counterparts. And so Vampires turn to Lycans as alternative.
Both of the Vampire and Lycan species can trace their origins to a human family that carried a rare genetic mutation. Due to this mutation, some members of this human family were able to become Immortals, beginning the Vampire and Lycan bloodlines.
Very few Vampires or Lycans are born Immortal, with most having once been human.
Humans become trapped in the middle of a gunfight between Vampires and Lycans in a subway station. The main objective of the Lycans is to capture Michael Corvin, a previously normal doctor who is the human descendant of Alexander Corvinus, the original Immortal.
Humans become more involved in the war between the Vampires and Lycans in Evolution, and this marks the beginning of their discovery that Immortals live amongst them. Michael Corvin, by then a Lycan/Vampire Hybrid, reveals himself to human police officers in a tavern, and the officers soon after witness the superhuman speed and strength of the Vampire Selene, as well as catching a glimpse of Marcus Corvinus, the oldest of the Vampires, who is a Vampire/Lycan Hybrid by that time. A human trucker also sees Michael, Selene and Marcus, when Selene and Michael stop his truck and force him to loan it to them, so they can use it to outrun Marcus.
Later, the four police officers who had previously been confronted by Michael and Selene wander into a Vampire safe house, where they see a deceased Lycan. The Cleaners, a group of human soldiers working for Alexander Corvinus, arrive and destroy the safe house, however, they leave the officers alive to tell the story of what they had seen.
By the end of Evolution, all of the Cleaners are dead, Alexander Corvinus has committed suicide, and all three Vampire Elders are deceased as well, leaving no one capable of hiding the continued existence of the Immortal species from human eyes.
During the events of the prequel, humans in Hungary are aware of the existence of Werewolves. Werewolves in the region attack humans continuously, and half of the region's workers have become Werewolves. To combat Werewolf attacks on their homes, the humans pay tribute to the Vampires. After a wealthy landowner is killed by Werewolves, the humans begin to complain, and Vampire Elder Viktor becomes so enraged by their complaints that he kills the owner of a local silver mine. The Vampires use the silver from the local mine to fund the weaponry of their Death Dealers, Vampire warriors that specialize in the killing of Werewolves.
After the destruction of almost the entire Vampire species due to an uprising of the Lycans and Werewolves, the humans are left without any form of protection at all.
By the early 21st Century, humans discover the existence of the Immortals and begin efforts to eradicate both species, even declaring Martial Law. The Purges are begun at this time, involving humans actively seeking out Lycans and Vampires, and killing every Immortal they come across. Pawn shops sell teeth ripped from deceased Immortals as keepsakes, and humans seem to view the Immortals as pests to be destroyed at all costs.
Despite the efforts of the humans, Lycans take over the influential biotech corporation, Antigen, spurring a series of events in which a Vampire and a Hybrid are able to escape. One human, Detective Sebastian teams up with Selene and David against the Lycans and they slaughter the Lycans running Antigen and the two Evolved Lycans they have created.
By the end of Awakening, Selene and Michael Corvin have both awakened from induced comas, and are determined to find each other, with Selene vowing to take back the world for the Vampires.
Humans appear in the non-canon novel, Blood Enemy. A charismatic monk named Brother Ambrose leads a group of mortals against a party of Vampires, killing Ilona, the wife of Viktor, and slaughtering the entire group, the only exceptions being Sonja, who is saved by Lucian, and Soren, who runs away in fear.
When Viktor is awakened from hibernation and learns of the death of his wife and near-death of his daughter, he leads an attack on the entire village that the mortals hail from, killing everyone in sight. He then personally bites Brother Ambrose, and watches him die as the Vampire virus shuts down his system.
