The Alexandria Hive of vampires was located in the far north of Egypt outside Alexandria and was the only hive in Egypt. The queen was Matakara; at the time of her death, there were six vampires besides the queen.
Matakara metamorphosed Ivy Tunstell before dying; upon the death of his queen, Chancellor Neshi committed suicide. Four male vampires transferred to the newly created queen and, together with six drones, accompanied Mrs. Tunstell back to London, becoming the new Wimbledon Hive.
The hive house is located off Rue Ibrahim and within sight of Port Vieux on the eastern side of Alexandria. The building itself has a Greek facade. It is two stories tall with large marble columns on the first level and a long balcony on the second floor.
Inside, doorways lead off a vestibule, and woven reed mats lay on the floors. Statues and paintings of ancient Egyptian gods decorate the house. The ambiance is described as stark and primitive, but awe-inspiring.
