Veronica Gorloisen is a minor character from the film The Sorcerer's Apprentice and is the love interest of Balthazar Blake. She is portrayed by Monica Bellucci.
Veronica is a sorcereress who has had the great fortune of being loved by Balthazar Blake—and the misfortune of being loved by Maxim Horvath. Balthazar and Veronica are willing to do everything for their love, and at the same time, they’re two fighters. Horvath, who, like them, was a disciple of Merlin, also falls in love with Veronica. She rejects him for Balthazar, and because of that, he betrays them by aligning himself with Morgana. It’s a beautiful and powerful story about love, jealousy and vengeance. When their colleague, Maxim Horvath, betrayed them and their master, Merlin, and sided with Morgana le Fay, Veronica used a spell to trap Morgana's soul in her own body. But the more powerful sorceress began to kill Veronica from the inside-out, forcing Balthazar to imprison his love inside the Grimhold, both to stop Morgana's evil and prevent the death of the woman he loved.
When Horvath finally freed Veronica, by then she was entirely possessed by Morgana, who proceeded to perform an evil spell to resurrect an army of undead evil sorcerers, but Balthazar interfered, using the same spell Veronica used to imprison Morgana in her body. Only this time Balthazar freed Veronica of Morgana by absorbing the witch into his own body. But like her prior host, Morgana was too powerful for Balthazar to contain and broke free of him, becoming an uncorporal entity.
Luckily, Balthazar's apprentice, Dave managed to stop Morgana and Veronica was finally reunited with the man she loved.
- Balthazar noted to Dave in the film that, like him, Veronica was the only of Merlin's three apprentices who longed to be normal and have no magic.
- "The Sorcerer's Appentice" is greatly inspired by J.K. Rowling's "Harry Potter" series. Veronica Gorlosein is the equivalent of Minerva McGonagall.
- Her surname contains the name Gorlois, the name of Morgan le Fay's father and the original husband to Arthur's mother, Igraine
