Castlevania: Circle of the Moon Game Script

1. Prologue
Camilla: We crave the presence of the embodiment of suffering, the ruler of darkness!

(Camilla lifts her hands and a shaft of light from above strikes the coffin) (ground rumbles) (coffin explodes to reveal Dracula)

Dracula: I have waited for this moment, to be awake again. To bask in darkness and feel
the moonlight within.

Camilla: Count Dracula, I am honored to be in your presence.

Dracula: Indeed. Though I lack my full power.

Camilla: We are preparing the rite to replenish your power...

(Maurice Baldwin, Hugh Baldwin, and Nathan Graves run into the room)

Maurice: Stop! You cannot be allowed to taint the world!

Dracula: You...I remember...you were one of the vampire killers that sealed me. You've aged.

Maurice: It is our duty to see you banished.

Dracula: Amusing, to use my nemesis' life to return to my power. I have no use for children. Be gone!

(Dracula blasts the floor beneath Nathan and Hugh)

Maurice: Hugh! Nathan!

Nathan: Master!

Hugh: Father!

(both boys fall down a long tunnel)

Nathan: Hmmm. No creatures around here. Hugh, are you okay?

Hugh: Yeah. We were just brushed aside and ignored.

Nathan: We have to find Master.

Hugh: I'll go. He's my father. Nathan, you'll be in the way. Just get out of here.

(Hugh leaves Nathan)

Nathan: I want to find Master as much as anybody.

2. Nathan and Necromancer at the Audience Room
Necromancer: Extraordinary! To be dropped into the abyss and still live! But your luck is
about to run out.

Nathan: Get out of my way!

Necromancer: Child, before I finish you, I will tell you some news. Your precious master
is already in our power.

Nathan: What?!

Necromancer: That old man will feed us with his soul. The rite has been prepared and we
only await the full moon.

Nathan: No!

(player takes over and defeats both Necromancer's forms)

Nathan: I know Master is still alive! Hold on, I'll be there. Although...where is Hugh?

3. Nathan and Hugh at the Machine Tower
Nathan: Hugh! Are you alright?

Hugh: What are you doing here? Are you trying to take my glory?!

Nathan: Wha? What are you talking about? I just want to save Master.

Hugh: You're in the way! I will defeat Dracula myself! And then...

Nathan: Hugh?

4. Nathan and Hugh at the Chapel Tower
(Hugh is knocked backwards out the room where Adrameleck is)

Nathan: Hugh! You okay?!

Hugh: You! Back off! This is my trophy to claim!

(Hugh tries to get up but falls back down)

Hugh: Urgg!

Nathan: Hugh!

(after beating Adrameleck)

Hugh: Damn! Who asked you for help?!

Nathan: I couldn't just leave you, could I?

Hugh: Don't think that you defeated it. It was the power of that whip.

Nathan: Hugh?

Hugh: You could never beat me in training. Never once! But father named you the successor and gave you the Hunter Whip. Your parents and my father banished Dracula together and those fond memories clouded his judgment. Don't forget that!

5. Nathan and Camilla at the Underground Waterway
Nathan: You. You were with Dracula in the hall.

Camilla: I am Camilla. I beckoned Dracula forth again.

Nathan: Why do you want his return? To turn this world into a living hell?

Camilla: But isn't this world hellish already? People are intrigued by darkness, and covet chaos and power. They are dirty self-centered mongrels. I simply wish the world to properly reflect this image.

Nathan: You are delusional!

Camilla: If only you too would embrace the darkness in your soul, then a new world would unfold before you.

Nathan: Shut up!

Camilla: The one who was with you...he was more honest with himself. Even my Master approves of him. (giggle)

Nathan: What? What have you done to Hugh?

(after beating Camilla)

Camilla: You are too late. The rite has been prepared. Only the full moon is missing. It is just a matter of time, before the Master has his full power of Darkness. Your precious Master and friend will...

(Camilla screams and dies)

Nathan: Master! Hugh!

6. Nathan and Hugh at the Observation Tower
Hugh: Nathan, so you've finally arrived.

Nathan: Hugh?! You're okay? I thought that they...

(Hugh suddenly slashes at Nathan) (Nathan dodges)

Nathan: Hugh! What are you doing?!

Hugh: I am superior to you. I will defeat you to prove myself to father!

Nathan: You are being controlled by...Camilla? No...by Dracula!

(player takes over and defeats the possessed Hugh)

Nathan: Stop Hugh! I don't want to hurt you. Hugh!

Hugh: Nathan? I, I'm...I'm all right now.

Nathan: You are yourself again.

Hugh: Nathan...I am sorry. I was envious of you.

Nathan: ?!

Hugh: When father named you the successor, I was afraid that I was worthless. I wanted...needed the recognition.

Nathan: Enough.

Hugh: My father saw that darkness in my heart. So he chose you...

Nathan: Stop, Hugh.

Hugh: That's probably the dark weakness that father saw...in my soul...why he chose you.

Nathan: Stop it Hugh.

Hugh: It's all right. Even I realize now that father was right in his decision. Don't make me embarrass myself further. Allow me self-pity for now. Help father now. I am entrusting his return to you.

Nathan: I accept.

7. Final battle with Dracula
Dracula: Hmm. You have done well to come so far.

Nathan: Master!

Dracula: Impeccable timing. The time for the rite is upon us. Your soul will become ours as well.

Nathan: Not if I can help it! Master, are you all right?

Dracula: What an emotional display. But don't fool yourself. Even you must have darkness upon your soul.

Nathan: What?!

Dracula: To be superior. To be honored for your singular accomplishments...

Nathan: !

Dracula: ...to be loved by all...to get the glory even at the expense of others. That is what your friend craved. I just increased that desire, that power.

Nathan: You despicable blight! How dare you toy with his soul. I'll get you for that!

(player takes over) (Dracula's first form beaten)

Dracula: Power...I need my full power!

(shaft of light sucks Dracula into it)

Nathan: Huh?

(moves closer to the shaft of light) (Hugh Baldwin runs in and unties his father from the pillar)

Maurice: Chase him! Don't let him escape! Urgg...

Nathan: !!

Hugh: I'll take care of father. You go after him!

Nathan: ...right. Get Master to safety.

Hugh: Nathan, banish Dracula and make sure you get out.

Nathan: I will.

8. The Ending
Dracula: It is a wasted effort. I will never truly be gone. So long as there is darkness and desire in the soul of man. I will continue to be revived.

Nathan: And we will be there to stop you. You can bet on that.

(Nathan escapes the crumbling castle) (he meets with Hugh and Morris at seaside)

Nathan: Master, are you well?

Morris: Nathan? Thank you. You did well. ... you have become a Hunter in your own right. Hugh. I need to thank you as well. But your training must begin anew.

Hugh: I know father. I will train like I was reborn to become worthy. Hey Nathan. If you become soft, I'll take over for you.

Nathan: I look forward to the challenge, Hugh.
