Wielder of the legendary whip, "Vampire Killer". A hot-headed energetic young man, but has confidence, poise and a sense of humor. At times, this makes him seem like he's not taking things seriously. But when it really counts, he can be very clever. His most common answer to most things: "No problem".
Grew up with Jonathan. Intelligent, but is a little too confident in her book smarts. Talks a lot, and sticks her nose into other peoples' business.

Throughout the game she is usually referred to as a child.

The person who teaches skills and gives items to Jonathan and Charlotte. He was killed by Brauner and was almost made a part of Dracula's castle, but the strength of his soul allowed him to retain his consciousness. His soul is trapped within Dracula's castle, however, so he cannot move or put his soul to rest.
A priest (a very greedy one at that) who acts as your guide. Not the courageous type. He runs the store.
