The grandson of the legendary Simon Belmont. Juste Belmont is the hero of the game, and his goal is to collect and destroy Dracula's remains in order to save his good friends, Maxim and Lydie.
Maxim had been on a 2 year training regime, but remembers nothing of it except for the disappearance of his friend Lydie Erlanger. Little does Juste know, Dracula's spirit is deep within Maxim, and is ready to unleash his rage.

The Prince of Darkness lives within Maxim, by spirit only. However after defeating Maxim for the second time in the game, Dracula returns and its up to Juste to defend his family's historic name.
Juste encounters Death inside of Dracula's Castle several times. First Death makes Juste aware of what castle he is in, then later on explains why there are 2 castles within. Death also kidnaps Lydie, and a one on one showdown with Juste is inevitable.
