Castlevania: Symphony of the Night Game Script

1. Richter and Dracula
Richter: Die monster. You don't belong in this world!

Dracula: It was not by my hand that I am once again given flesh. I was called here by humans, who wish to pay me tribute.

Richter: Tribute? You steal men's souls, and make them your slaves.

Dracula: Perhaps the same could be said of all religions.

Richter: Your words are as empty as your soul. Mankind ill needs a savior such as you.

Dracula: What is a man?! A miserable little pile of secrets! But enough talk, have at you!

(after beating both Dracula's forms)

Dracula: No! This cannot be! AAAAAAAAAH!!!

2. Alucard and Death at the Entrance
Death: Ah, Alucard. What is your business here?

Alucard: I've come to put an end to this.

Death: Still befriending mortals... I'll not ask you to return to our side. But I demand you cease your attack!

Alucard: I will not.

Death: You shall regret those words. We will meet again.

3. Alucard and Maria Renard at the Marble Gallery
Maria: Wait a moment! You seem human and yet... what do you here?

Alucard: I've come to destroy this castle.

Maria: Then we have the same purpose. I'll trust you for now. I'm Maria. Who are you?

Alucard: Alucard.

Maria: Not the talkative type I can see. Well, perhaps we will meet again. If you live that long. Farewell.

4. Alucard and the Master Librarian at the Long Library
Alucard: It's been a long time, old one.

Librarian: Oh! Its you, master Alucard. What do you need?

Alucard: I need your help.

Librarian: Young master, I cannot aid one who opposes the Master!

Alucard: You won't go unrewarded.

Librarian: Really? In that case, just tell me what you need.

5. Alucard and Maria at the Alchemy Laboratory
Maria: So, we meet again, Alucard.

Alucard: It seems so.

Maria: As friendly as ever I see. It's strange...this castle is different than I remember it.

Alucard: This castle is a creature of Chaos. It may take many incarnations.

Maria: Then I can't rely on my memories, huh? Oh well, I'll do my best. Good luck.

6. Alucard and Maria at the Royal Chapel
Maria: Impressive. You're very strong.

Alucard: What is it you want? You did not come here to tell me that.

Maria: You're right. Do you know the name 'Richter Belmont'?

Alucard: Of the Belmont clan? Of course, but...

Maria: He disappeared about a year ago. I'm sure he's here. If you see him, please let me know.

Alucard: As you wish, milady.

Maria: Thank you. So... you do know how to be a gentleman.

7. Alucard and Richter Belmont at the Coliseum
Richter: HA HA HA HA!

Alucard: Who are you?

Richter: Open Hell's gate! Come forth, my servants!

Alucard: The scent of your blood...you're a Belmont!

Richter: Crush this flea who invades my castle. HA HA HA!

(after beating Minotaurus and Werewolf)

Alucard: I'm certain that was a Belmont. So he said he was the Lord of this castle...

8. Alucard's Nightmare
Alucard: Mother!

Lisa: That voice...Alucard it's you!

Alucard: I'm coming, mother! I'll save you!

Lisa: No, Alucard. Don't come here!

Alucard: But mother...

Lisa: It's all right. If my death can save others, I gladly surrender my life.

Alucard: Mother, no! Please, no!

Lisa: Yes, Alucard. Watch me die, and remember always my last words to you...

Alucard: Yes, mother.

Lisa: You must despise humans. They are to be your prey!

Alucard: WHAT?!

Lisa: Better for them to die than to let them compound their sins. Begin by slaying that one, over there.

Alucard: No! It wasn't like this!

Lisa: What's wrong? Alucard?

Alucard: My mother never said such a thing!

Lisa: What do you mean? Kill them, and bring them happiness!

Alucard: No! You're not my mother! What kind of demon are you?!

(Lisa laughs and there is a flash of light) (figure of Lisa is gone from the cross and replaced by Succubus)

Succubus: You broke free of my spell. I like that.

Alucard: Demon! Death is too good for you.

Succubus: Come here little boy, and show me what you've got.

(after beating Succubus)

Succubus: Darkling, I smell your blood. You're a vampire? Could it be...that strength, that beauty...you're the son of Lord Dracula!

Alucard: Death in the dream world will send your soul wandering through all eternity, demon.

Succubus: No wait! I beg of you...!!!

9. Ferryman
Ferryman: "I'll take you to a place that might be interesting to you. Heh heh heh heh!"

Ferryman: "I'll guide you to meet your destiny!"

10. Alucard and Maria at the Royal Chapel
Maria: So did you find Richter?

Alucard: I don't know if he's the one you're looking for. But I found a Belmont.

Maria: Really? So he is here!

Alucard: But the one I saw was the enemy. He was the Lord of this castle.

Maria: That can't be true! You're wrong! I must go now!

11. Alucard and Maria at the Marble Gallery
Maria: Alucard?

Alucard: That voice. Maria?

Maria: I'm sorry. You were right. He has joined forces with the enemy.

Alucard: So it was a Belmont after all.

Maria: But someone must be controlling him. Whatever we do, we can't harm Richter.

Alucard: But he must be stopped.

Maria: I know. Well...here...take these with you.

Alucard: What are these?

Maria: If you wear these, you can see beyond evil illusions.

Alucard: Thank you. 'Tis best then if you pray for the soul of your friend.

12. Alucard and Richter at the Castle Keep
Richter: I've been waiting for you!

(If you didn't meet Maria and got the Holy Glasses)

Alucard: So it is you. But why is a Belmont planning the resurrection of Count Dracula?

(If you did)

Alucard: Answer me! Why is a Belmont planning the resurrection of Count Dracula?!

Richter: Count Dracula rises but once every century, and my role is over. If I can resurrect him, then the battle will last for eternity!

Alucard: ...if those are your true feelings, then so be it!

(If you equip the Holy Glasses and destroy the orb controlling Richter)

Shaft: You have defeated me. But all is not yet lost. The resurrection of Count Dracula is at hand! Ha ha ha ha!

13. Alucard, Maria, and Richter after destroying the orb
Richter: No...what have I done?

Maria: Thank you Alucard, for saving Richter.

Richter: Alucard? The same Alucard who joined forces with my ancestor Trevor Belmont? That was over three hundred years ago.

Alucard: No time for small talk. Is the person who controlled you in that castle over there?

Richter: Yes I think so.

Alucard: Maria, take Richter and leave here. I'll finish this.

Maria: I see...good luck.

14. Alucard and Death at the Abandoned Pit
Death: So you've made it this far. In the name of your father, cease this foolishness!

Alucard: Not while there is breath in my body.

Death: Then, for the Master, I will feast on your soul this night!

15. Alucard and Shaft at the center of the Black Marble Gallery
Shaft: You have done well in making it this far. I would expect no less from the son of our Master.

Alucard: So you are the one who was controlling Belmont.

Shaft: Yes. I am the dark priest called Shaft. This world must be cleansed in the forge of Chaos.

Alucard: Why did you make Belmont lord of this castle?

Shaft: For centuries, vampire hunters have defeated evil with holy power. But, if two vampire hunters were to fight each other...

Alucard: But Belmont's power is supreme among vampire hunters. None other could defeat him.

Shaft: Exactly. That's why I removed him as a threat, by making him into lord of this castle.

Alucard: But your plan has failed.

Shaft: Has it indeed? We'll see what happens after I destroy your weak human side.

(player takes over and beats Shaft)

Shaft: Ugh! No!

Alucard: You claim to love the darkness. Go then and dwell there for all eternity.

Shaft: But...but my goal is achieved! Count Dracula has come to purify this corrupt world... with the searing flames of Chaos. (cries out as he burst into flame and vanishes)

16. Final battle with Dracula
Alucard: Father...

Dracula: Well met, my son! It's been a long time.

Alucard: I was hoping we would not see each other again. I can't allow you to leave here, Father.

Dracula: You have ever been the ally of humans. Have you forgotten what they did to your mother?!

Alucard: Think you I would forget such a thing?! No! But neither do I seek revenge against them.

Dracula: Still uttering the same nonsense. No matter. Now is the time to put aside your weak human side. And join me in REMAKING THIS WORLD!!!

Alucard: Dracula! In the name of my mother, I will defeat you again!

17: Good Ending Lead-In
Alucard: Go back whence you came! Trouble the soul of my Mother no more!

Dracula: How? How is that I have been so defeated?

Alucard: You have been doomed ever since you lost the ability to love.

Dracula: Ah...sarcasm. 'For what profit is it to a main if he gains the world, and loses his own soul'?. Matthew 16:26 I believe.

Alucard: .........

Dracula: Tell me. What... What were Lisa's last words?

Alucard: She said "Do not hate humans. If you cannot live with them, then at least do them no harm. For their's is already a hard lot." She also said to tell you that she would love you for all of eternity...

Dracula: Lisa, forgive me. Farewell my son...

(Alucard escapes the banished castle and arrives at seaside, where Richter and Maria await)

Alucard: So you made it.

Maria: Alucard! I'm glad your all right!

Richter: I'm sorry. 'Tis my fault that you had to fight your own father...

Alucard: Fear not. I had my own reasons for destroying him.

Richter: It must have been painful for you.

Alucard: Indeed. But you must always remember that the only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing...

Richter: I understand.

Maria: Alucard, what will you do now?

Alucard: The blood that flows in my veins is cursed. 'Twould be best for this world if I were to disappear forever.

Maria: ......... I see...

Alucard: Farewell then. We'll not meet again.

Maria: ......... Alucard...

Richter: Don't you want to go after him, Maria?

17a: Under 196% Completed
Maria: No, it's best this way. I can't ease his torment. Someday perhaps we will meet again, and on that day maybe...

Richter: I see...

Maria: Let's go. Everyone's waiting for us.

Richter: Yes, let's get out of here.

(credits roll)

17b: Over 196% Completed
Maria: ......... I'm sorry. I can't let him disappear from my life.

Richter: It's all right. Go after him. Perhaps you can save his haunted soul.

Maria: Thank you Richter... Fare thee well.

Richter: And yourself, dear lady.

(Maria gives chase) (we fade away as the credits roll)

18: Bad Ending Lead-In
Alucard: It's over...Belmont.

Richter: So the war between humans and vampires finally ends here...

Alucard: .........

Richter: What need for the shepherd when the wolves have all gone... My time on this world has come to an end...

18a: Killed Richter Without Holy Glasses
(Alucard escapes the banished castle and arrives at seaside)

Alucard: Mankind continues to fight, but it is a desperate fight to stay alive. I suppose that he chose a life of warfare since that was the only way he knew. Like you Father, he chose of a path of destruction... Farewell, land of my birth. Never again will these eyes gaze upon your beauty.

(credits roll)

18b: Killed Richter With Holy Glasses
(Alucard escapes the banished castle and arrives at seaside, where Maria awaits)

Alucard: So you made it.

Maria: Alucard! How is Richter?

Alucard: I'm sorry...

Maria: I see... Thank you for stopping him... Do you suppose that this too is Fate?

Alucard: ......... So your journey is over as well then?

Maria: No, not until I learn what caused Richter's madness.

Alucard: I understand... Well then, may the Gods guard you along the way. Farewell.

Maria: You as well Alucard. Good-bye.
