Castlevania: Legacy of Darkness Game Script

A. Cornell’s Quest
1. Cornell and Ortega at Castle Wall
(drawbridge behind Cornell rises and traps him in)

Cornell: Yikes!

Ortega: Ha ha! Shocking to find the great Cornell trapped in a place like this?

(Ortega grabs the outer gate and throws it up with one hand)

Ortega: Even a man-wolf is nothing but a trapped dog in a cage.

(Ortega walks toward Cornell who is on other side of inner gate)

Cornell: Ortega! You’re okay! I saw the village after it was attacked. Your home was burned to the ground.

Ortega: Uh-huh. I know.

Cornell: Are you really…Ortega?

Ortega: It has been one year since I lost to you.

Cornell: Huh?

Ortega: And Ada, why, she has really blossomed into a beautiful woman.

Cornell: What are you saying?

Ortega: She will be a perfect sacrifice to offer Count Dracula for these powers! (eerie red light and mist surround Ortega momentarily)

Cornell: Dracula?! Don’t be a fool! According to legend, he won’t come back for some time. Wait…you were the one who attacked the village? Who kidnapped Ada?! Have you sold your soul to the Devil?!

Ortega: You will find everything out soon enough, Cornell. Soon enough.

(Ortega walks back outside)

Cornell: Ortega!

2. Cornell and Lord Oldrey at Villa
(Cornell walks into the room and Lord Oldrey banging on a door)

Lord Oldrey: Mary, I need a drink! I’m so thirsty!

Mary: No! Stay away from me!

Lord Oldrey: Why do you talk that way to me, Mary? I am the lord of this annex and your husband. And I’m telling you I need a drink! Ah, c’mon Mary…oh! (sees Cornell) I didn’t see you standing there. The wife and I have a domestic problem we’re trying to work out now. I don’t know what you want but could you come back another time?

Cornell: I’m looking for a girl by the name of Ada.

Lord Oldrey: Ada? I’m afraid I don’t know anyone by that name.

Cornell: She had to have been brought here. I can still smell her.

Lord Oldrey: I said I don’t know her and I mean it. Anyway, I am thirsty now so…wait a minute…you will do just nicely!

Cornell: What?

(electricity surrounds Master Oldrey and reveals he’s a vampire)

Lord Oldrey: Why your warm blood of course, with which to wet my whistle!

3. Cornell and Mary Oldrey at Villa
(after fight with Lord Oldrey, Cornell enters room and talks to Mary Oldrey)

Mary: Oh thank you, young man. Has he left? I am Mary. I’m the wife of that…that vampire! Yes, the vampire Oldrey is my husband. There was a man named Gilles de Rais and a woman, Actrise. They made him what he is today. He used to be such a good man…after he became a vampire, my husband started coming after me and even our son Henry. Rather than become a vampire, I’ve even thought of taking my own life. But how could I leave little Henry behind? Can I ask you a favor, stranger? Help my little Henry escape from here. Henry is hiding near the entrance to the garden. If you go out by the East Gate you can escape by a secret path through the forest. Please take Henry as far as this path. As a token of my gratitude, I will give you this Copper Key. Be careful. There are demons lurking about the garden. Take care of my son, young stranger.

4. Cornell and Henry at Villa Garden Maze
(Henry runs down a tower away from the Frankenstein Monster)

Cornell: I smell a child. A human child.

(turns and sees Henry running towards him)

Cornell: Are you Henry?

(Henry nods)

Henry: My father, h-he went mad, and…mama is…she told me to run away. I don’t know what to do.

(kneels before Henry)

Cornell: My name is Cornell. Your mother asked me to help you escape from here.

Henry: You talked to mama?

Cornell: Yeah. C’mon, let’s go.

(after leading Henry to safety, Cornell opens a gate)

Cornell: You’ll be okay from here. Now walk that way through the forest. (gives Henry Ada’s pendant) As long as you wear that pendant, the wolves will watch out for you.

Henry: What will become of Mama?

Cornell: Well…

Henry: And father?

Cornell: Just go quickly. Go. Do it for your mother. She made it possible for you to escape.

Henry: All right. (runs off into the forest)

5. Cornell and Mary Oldrey at Villa
Mary: Y-you did it! You helped Henry escape safely! Oh, that’s wonderful news! As long as that child is safe, I have no more regrets. As promised, I give you the Copper Key. I hope that it serves you well. Again, I cannot thank you enough, young stranger.

6. Cornell and Renon at Villa
Renon: Pray excuse me, but have you seen a scroll hereabouts? Ah that’s it! I thank you dearly! This is important to my business. Forgive my rudeness. My name is Renon. I am what you would call a demon.

(Cornell rears back)

Renon: Wait wait! I am not an enemy! My role is to provide useful items for adventurers to the dark castle. It is shameful for a demon to be working, but one needs gold even in Hell these days. Surely we were fated to meet! Whenever the need arises, use the scroll to summon me.

(player looks at scroll)

Renon: Dear me, is that the time? (looks at pocketwatch) We have talked too long. Remember, summon me whenever you need.

7. Cornell, Gilles de Rais, and Actrise at Villa crypt
(after the boss fight with vampire Gilles de Rais)

Gilles: Ugh. It’s true that you’re not a mere man-wolf.

(Cornell turns to see Actrise standing nearby)

Actrise: Quite a show there, lobo.

Cornell: Who are you people, anyway?

Actrise: A man of your skills should be able to put up a good fight against Him.

Gilles : Uh-huh. We don’t have any idea of the power of the man-beast’s magic.

Actrise: It’s so exciting don’t you think? Ha ha ha ha ha! (Actrise and Gilles fade away)

Cornell: Him? The man-beast’s magic?

8. Cornell and Ortega at Duel Tower
(Cornell walks around a hole in the ground where an elevator will supposedly take up the next opponent)

(humongous werewolf leaps out of the hole and knocks Cornell down)

Cornell: What the devil! (sees Ortega standing nearby) What are you trying to do, Ortega?!

Ortega: This is just a warning from one friend to another. Look at him. Unlike you, this creature could not break the seal placed by the man-beasts. That seal was broken for him by Dracula.

Cornell: What?!

Ortega: After all, there is a limit to the benefits of ascetic training. Yet…Dracula has exceeded that limitation of the werewolf with ease. Perhaps if you could also find the power to exceed that limitation, hm? (Ortega walks away) I’ll be waiting for you, Cornell. You’re not the type that would lay down and die after coming this far.

Cornell: Wait! What about Ada?!

9. Cornell vs. Ortega at the Room of Clocks
(Cornell takes an elevator to the roof) (feels a presence)

Cornell: What the…?!

(Ortega appears right behind Cornell)

Ortega: Tooooo late, Cornell. Why, you’ve lost before the fight has even begun.

Cornell: Wh-where is Ada?

Ortega: Still, you’ve always kept your promises so I knew you would come. Now we can settle this business once and for all. (reddish light courses through Ortega) (stumbles away from Cornell)

Ortega: Ohh, it feels like my head’s been laid open. I can’t restrain my power.

(Ortega writhes, slowly changing shape)

Cornell: Ortega?

Ortega: Oh yes, you used to be a step quicker than I at one time. You, the only man-beast who can manipulate the seal. A year ago when we went head to head, your eyes were as cold as the moon. They were eyes that saw a weaker opponent. You did not respect me…but the man you see before you is changed. Changed from that time. Changed I say! (pant pant) Cornell, are you really so worried about Ada’s well being?

Cornell: Huh?

Ortega: Why do you go to such lengths? Why, you and Ada are virtually strangers. You are not blood relatives.

Cornell: That is none of your business.

Ortega: The sacrificial rites should already have begun by now.

Cornell: What did you say?!

Ortega: (slowly rises partly in wolf form) If you plan on rescuing Ada, you’d better hurry or you’ll be too late! However, first we’ve got a score to settle between ourselves!

Cornell: You worthless…I won’t let you get away with it!

Ortega: At last you show me your true colors. But do you think this is all I’ve got?! Ha ha ha! Oh what a great feeling! Now I am ready for battle. Are…you…ready…Cor (becomes a huge chimera)…nell?!!!

(player beats Chimera-Ortega)

(Ortega reverts to his human form kneeling)

Ortega: Ha, it appears that I am still not the match for you, Cornell. I thought that I could surpass your strength with Dracula’s powers.

Cornell: Ortega…

Ortega: Ada is being kept in the Clock Tower. She has not been sacrificed yet.

Cornell: Are you sure, Ortega?

Ortega: I wanted to settle this score even if it meant disobeying Dracula. So I have no regrets now that I have fought the true you. I only regret what I did to the villagers, but it is too late for that now.

Cornell: You don’t need to go on, Ortega.

Ortega: At the very least…if you could…save that girl Ada.

Cornell: Of course.

(lightning crackles around Ortega as he stumbles away)

Ortega: Get away, Cornell. My power is going out of control. I can’t stop it.

Cornell: Ortega!

(Ortega throws himself off the roof and dies in an explosion)

Cornell: Ortega!!!

10. Cornell, Ada, and Death at the Clock Tower
(Cornell sees an unconscious Ada)

Cornell: Oh no! (runs over and kneels beside her) (shakes her) Ada! Ada! (Ada slowly awakens)

Ada: Oh Cornell…the village has burned…all the people…

Cornell: It’s all right now.

(sickles hurtle from afar and separate them)

Cornell: Argh! Ada!

(sees Ada encased in a red jewel)

Ada: Cornell, help me!

Death: I have found her at last. To think the sacrifice was hidden here! Searching for the divine sacrifice almost upset the timing of the ritual. And I thought that stupid lycanthrope would prove to be a little useful. What a fool, disobeying the orders of the Count and wasting his own life.

(Death and Ada fade away)

Cornell: Don’t go! No! Ada, hang on! I’ll save you, I promise!

11. Cornell and Renon at Castle Keep
(player turns around to see Renon)

Renon: I have been waiting for this. At last we reach the climax. (tips hat) I have come to take my leave.

(If you bought less than 30000 worth of items from him)

News has arrived of an impending global war. The death of millions is a wonderful business opportunity. (looks at pocket watch) I must be gone. We shall not meet again…not during your lifetime anyway…(tips hat and vanishes)

(If you bought more than 30000)

But first there is a small thing I require from you. That scroll you have used so often…did you read what it says? It’s written in ancient demon script. Impossible to read. What is written is thus…You have agreed to a contract with Satan. Borrow over 30 thousand gold pieces, and your soul is forfeit. You have taken far more than this amount. I now enforce the contract. (transforms into a winged demon) Your soul is mine!!!

(boss fight begins)

12. Cornell and Dracula at Castle Keep
(Cornell walks up to Dracula’s coffin)

(lid flies off with a bang)

(red crystal rises from the insides)

(crystal turns translucent to reveal Ada inside)

Cornell: Ada!

Ada: !!! (bangs on crystal walls)

Dracula: Bwahahahahaha!

(Dracula materializes behind Cornell)

Cornell: Y-you’re Count Dracula?!

Dracula: Well, I applaud you my boy, for finding your way to the Devil’s lair.

Cornell: Let my sister go! Let Ada go!

Dracula: Ha ha ha. Nothing quite so touching as the love between siblings. Oh now I can see your true colors. Well well. This could be amusing. Well man-wolf, you’d better bring on all your power. If you want to save your sister, you must fight me with your full force. All living creatures will serve as the staff of life in sweet darkness.

(player defeats Dracula’s first form)

Cornell: Ada!

Dracula: Ho ho ho ho! Bwahahaha! What do you call that?! Why, you’re not even trying. You can do better. I know you better than you think, man-wolf. She is not a man-wolf. She is a survivor of the humans your kind killed.

(Cornell looks back at Ada)

Cornell: Stop! Don’t go any further!

Dracula: You probably raised her as a man-wolf, but you cannot deceive me. Did you think you could atone for your sins by saving her? Or did you think that you yourself would be granted an indulgence? Did you think that this young lady would be elated by your actions? It is nothing more than shallow deception by a man-beast! Bwahahahaha! But if that is your design, then let us bare your true self. (Dracula opens cape and begins to suck Ada’s crystal towards him) (Cornell tries to touch it and gets thrown back) (Dracula closes cape around the crystal)

Cornell: Ada!

Dracula: Now I will reveal to you my true form. This power is second to none! If you want to save this woman you’d better be ready to give your life.

13. Cornell’s Ending
Dracula: Aaarrrrrggghhh!

(the banished Dracula encapsulates Ada in a crystal)

Ada: …!

Cornel: Ada!

(Dracula begins pulling the encapsulated Ada into the underworld with his submerging body)

Cornell: Ada!

(Cornell releases outward his wolf form, which breaks the crystal and frees Ada) (the submerging Dracula grabs Cornell’s wolf form in her place)

Cornell: Ada!

Ada: Cornell!

Cornell: I am losing my wolf power.

Dracula: Bwa ha ha! I must thank you, man-wolf! I have achieved my true purpose!

(puzzles by his words, they watch on as Dracula’s banishment completes) (Ada and Cornell escape the castle and make it to the confines of the surrounding woodland)

Cornell: We should be OK now.

Ada: We’re OK, aren’t we? But where do we go from here? The village is gone.

Cornell: I…uh… Uh, Ada? Ada, I’m not really your… What the… ?!

(Cornell is surprised by the appearance of a shadow)

Shadow (Henry): Cornell, is that you?

Cornell: Henry?

Henry: I thought that was you.

Cornell: You’re all right.

(they embrace) (we then cut to a nighttime scene, where the three rest in front of a fire)

Henry: …and then the blue wolf went in front of me and led me out. Thanks to this pendant, I didn’t run into any evil spirits.

Ada: Is that my pendant?

Henry: Oh, this is your pendant? Well, then I must thank you! But my mother and father…

Ada: I know how you feel, Henry. I lost both of my parents, too.

Henry: You did?

Ada: Yes. When I was very young, …

(as the youths converse, Cornell falls into deep thought) (he hears evil’s words echoing in his mind)

Dracula: I know you better than you think, man-wolf. She is not a man-wolf. She is a survivor of the humans your kind killed. Did you think that you could atone for your sins by saving her? Did you think that this young lady would be elated by your actions? It is nothing more than shallow deception by a man-beast!

Ortega: I wanted to settle this score even if it meant disobeying Dracula. So I have no regrets, now that I have fought the true you. I only regret what I did to the villagers, but it is too late for that now.

(Cornell is snapped out of his meditation by Ada)

Ada: Don’t you think so, Cornell.

Cornell: Uh, uh yeah.

(daylight approaches)

Henry: Ah, sunshine!

Cornell: Ada? I…

Ada: Cheer up, Cornell! Sure, the village has been destroyed and a lot will never be the same. But we just have to start all over together.

Henry: She’s right!

Ada: It doesn’t matter if we’re blood relatives, together we can do anything! Don’t you think so, Cornell?

Cornell: Ada…? But, how…?

Ada: The darkness has lifted, Cornell.

(without speaking another word, the relieved Cornell and friends begin the journey to their new home) (a final shot shows Ada’s pendant laying on the ground where they left it)

(the credits roll) (after the credits have ended, we cut to a closing scene back at the castle) (Death, Actrise and Gilles De Rais look on at the captured essence of Cornell’s wolf form)

Gilles: So this is the man-beast magic extracted from the man-wolf. What enormous power…

Actrise: It’s all the crystal could contain. But it should be sufficient for the ritual.

(Death begins an incantation)

Death: O great powers of the underworld sealed under the man-beast’s magic, bring back our master to his true state. Show us your exalted power. Provide the soul of this sleeping devil with a new body!

(Death’s wish is granted)

Death: The ritual is a success. All has proceeded just as the Count had calculated. Foolish humans! They will see. One day the world will be again shrouded in darkness.

(the scene fades out)

B. Reinhardt and Carrie’s Quests
1. Reinhardt/Carrie and Dracula at Castle Wall
(Dracula is floating at the window from which the moon and the Demon Castle can be seen)

Dracula: Miserable worm, upstart weakling. All who oppose the dark lord must die. Come, meet your doom! Ho ho ho ho!

2. Reinhardt/Carrie and Rosa at Villa
(player examines the red roses all around)

(Rosa enters the room carrying a water can)

Rosa: I wish to water the roses. Please step aside.

Reinhardt: Who are you? What are you doing here?

Carrie: Who are you? What are you doing in this place?

Rosa: I am Rosa. I look after these white roses.

Player: White roses?

(Rosa tips her can to reveal not water but blood)

Player: You…you are a vampire?!

Rosa: Why have you no fear? Only vampires and demons live here. Wandering carelessly in this place will soon cost you your life.

Reinhardt: I can never disobey my father’s teaching, to never attack the weak.

Carrie: But you are somehow different from these creatures of evil.

Rosa: Such sentimentality will cost you your life. I will forget I saw you. Flee now.

Reinhardt: The destiny of my blood means I must destroy Dracula.

Carrie: While Dracula exists, children live in terror. I cannot desert them!

(Rosa nods)

Rosa: As you will. First you must go the castle archives. The key to the archives…ah yes, a previous adventurer took it.

Player: …

Rosa: I can help you no more. Do not lose your life too quickly.

(Rosa fades away)

3. Reinhardt/Carrie and Charlie Vincent at Villa
(player opens door to reveal Charlie Vincent standing there with crucifix in hand)

(moves towards player who backs away)

Charlie : Don’t move! Not even a finger! All right, you appear to be a genuine human. I am Charlie Vincent, the mightiest of all vampire killers. You look like a villager…are you lost in the forest?

Reinhardt: I am Reinhardt Schneider. I have come to destroy Dracula.

Carrie: Don’t treat me like a child…my mission is to save the world from Dracula!

Charlie: Don’t talk nonsense! Leave Dracula to me. He is not the sort of opponent for an amateur like you.

Reinahrdt: The vampire is not a foe to be taken lightly! I advise you to flee to safety now…

Carrie: You presume too much! Speak not of matters that do not concern you!

Charlie: Obstinate youth! I will give you one more warning. Leave this place without delay. Do you understand?

(If you talk to him again and you haven’t met Rosa yet)

Ah yes, at dawn I spied a young woman in the rose garden. In the midst of this nest of foes, she was calmly tending the roses.

(If you’ve met Rosa but have not yet entered the Villa Archives and gotten the Garden Key)

The key to the archives? Ah…that must be the key I found in the rose garden. My intuition tells me it is worthless. Take it if you wish.

(After getting the Garden Key)

A similar thing happened to me. When I entered the garden, a giant suddenly attacked me. I couldn’t believe it. However hard I fight, I couldn’t harm him. He was invincible…I don’t frighten easily, but my blood ran cold.

4. Reinhardt/Carrie and Villager at Villa
(player enters the Villa Archives) (door slams shut when a Villager suddenly runs in and leans on the door) (player has his back to a mirror)

Villager: He…hel…help! This place swarms with demons. You have entered the castle of Hell!

Player: What’s the matter? What has happened?

Villager: If you value your life, you will flee this place now…

(in turning to examine it, player sees the mirror and notices the villager has no reflection)

(vampire reveals itself and swipes at player who dodges)

Villager: Heh heh heh heh heh. You smell different from the usual adventurer. Come to me, I will taste your blood!

5. Reinhardt/Carrie and Renon at Villa
Same as Cornell.

6. Reinhardt/Carrie and Malus at Garden Maze
(bushes rustle)

Player: Who’s there?

(Malus emerges)

Malus: Please help me.

Reinhardt: What is a child doing in this place? I am Reinhardt, you’re safe. I am a friend.

Carrie: What’s a little child doing here? I’m Carrie, you’re safe now.

Malus: My name is Malus.

Reinhardt: So Malus why are you all alone in this fearful place?

Carrie: Malus. Why are you here alone in this terrible place?

Malus: They burned the village…my home…my mother and father too…

Reinhardt: That’s terrible.

Carrie: That’s awful.

Malus: They took all the children to the castle. The devil in the black cloak was looking for a certain child…and then…then…my head hurts…I can’t remember…

Reinhardt: It’s alright. You don’t have to talk.

Carrie: Are you alright? You’re tired, that’s enough.

(stone dogs come in)

(Malus runs)

Malus: Arrrrgh!

Reinhardt: Malus, wait! Don’t leave me!

Carrie: Stop! It’s dangerous to run away alone!

(after following Malus to safety) (player opens a gate leading out of the Villa)

Reinhardt: You’ve come this far. Once you’re through the forest, you’re safe. You’re a man, you can do it.

Carrie: You’ve come this far. Once you’re through the forest, you’re safe. Watch out for the demons in the forest.

7. Reinhardt/Carrie and two vampires at the Villa crypt
(player enters the crypt and a woman Victim falls from the ceiling with bite marks on her neck)

Vampire: Very rude to interrupt someone who is enjoying his meal…or shall I think different…like the main dish has arrived?

(Vampire drops from ceiling)

Vampire: I will kill you here!

(after fight)

Vampire: C…cannot be! I, a vampire…defeated by a human?!

(Vampire dies, but the Victim, now a vampire herself, suddenly rises and attacks player)

8. Reinhardt and Rosa at Tunnel
(Rosa tries to kill self in shaft of sunlight)

Reinhardt: Stop! Don’t be stupid!

Rosa: No! Don’t stop me!

(drags Rosa out of sunlight)

Rosa: Why try to stop me? I am a vampire.

Reinhardt: Whatever you are, God forbids suicide.

Rosa: Even for a vampire?

Reinhardt: Yes.

Rosa: So…even in death, my soul cannot find forgiveness…

Reinhardt: Rosa…

Rosa: If that’s the case, you must kill me.

Reinhardt: Th…that’s…

Rosa: Why won’t you slay me? Aren’t you a vampire killer? Is it because of this woman’s shape? You can’t kill what looks like a girl or a child?

Reinhardt: …

Rosa: Such a softy. How will you ever stand up to Count Dracula…throwing away your life for nothing. Best run along home now.

9. Carrie and Actrise at Underground Waterway
Actrise: She has such power it is almost terrifying…only a child, but a true Fernandez. A shame to slay her.

Carrie : Who are you?

Actrise: Ho ho ho. I am Actrise. People would call me a witch. Our mission is to restore our ruler Count Dracula to life.

Carrie : What are you saying?!

Actrise: The power you possess would greatly help us revive the Count. I give you time to consider your choices. Lend us your power in the great work, or rot in Hell for eternity. Think it over carefully. We will meet again.

(Actrise vanishes)

Carrie: To restore him to his full power?

10. Reinhardt/Carrie meet the mutated Lizard Man
Lizard Man: I am human! I am only this shape because of a curse! You are an adventurer? I will give you some advice. To destroy the wall, you need both Magical Nitro and some Mandragora. Place them both in front of the wall. The Mandragora will detonate the Magical Nitro in a powerful explosion. Take this key. You will find Mandragora in the Torture Chamber.

11. Reinhardt/Carrie and Malus at Castle Center
Player: Malus, why are you here? I thought you had escaped.

Malus: This place…? Escape…? Say, are you going to fight Dracula? Aren’t you afraid?

Player: Malus…

Malus: Have you come to avenge my family? To rescue my friends?

Reinhardt: I swear it. I will have vengeance!

Carrie: I swear it. I will avenge your parents and destroy Dracula!

Malus: …heh heh heh.

Player: …?

Malus: Impossible.

Player: ?!

Malus: Why? Because you are trapped. You will die like wretches!

Player: Malus?!

Malus: All living creatures must consecrate their souls to the dark lord! To the kingdom of darkness, where no wretched sunlight comes.

(Malus runs away)

Reinhardt: Malus, what are you talking about?

Carrie: Malus, what have you ben saying?

12. Reinhardt Vs. Rosa at the Castle Center
Reinhardt: Rosa… (runs over to her who is holding a sword)

Rosa: Didn’t I warn you? Leave the castle now.

Reinhardt: My mission is to seal Dracula in his tomb! Until I defeat Dracula, I cannot leave!

Rosa: …so. You are determined to take the Count’s life.

Reinhardt: What?! It’s him! (sees Death nearby)

Rosa: A foe of the Count is an enemy to all vampires! Die!!!

Reinhardt: Rosa! Stop! I don’t want to fight you! (backs away)

(after fight)

(Rosa drops sword and falls to knees)

Rosa: Please finish me…

Reinhardt: Rosa, I didn’t mean to…

Rosa: I cannot stand this agony any more. A cursed soul, doomed to exist forever as a vampire.

Reinhardt: It was the curse of Dracula that made you a vampire?

Rosa: If you survive, be sure to tell my parents. Even unto death, I never fully lost my human soul.

Reinhardt: Rosa…

(Death throws a sickle and separates them)

(Death lands between them)

Reinhardt: Rosa!!!

Death: Still youthful as a vampire, she could not bear to kill you. But in time, her curse will deepen and take stronger hold. I shall enjoy watching your next encounter. Ho ho ho ho ho!!!

(both vanish)

13. Carrie vs. Actrise at Castle Center
(Carrie enters room and sees Actrise)

Carrie: Actrise…

Actrise: Ho ho ho. Have you considered your answer? Ah… but the sight of your impudent face tells me all.

Carrie: I will destroy Dracula. Oppose and I must kill you too.

Actrise: You have power, girl. But your opponent today is not me. Ho ho ho.

(camera focuses on a vampire woman standing nearby)

Carrie: Who? I sense a power to match my own.

Actrise: She was a Fernandez too, a warrior who came to fight the dark lord. We took her alive, and made her a vampire.

Carrie : …?! What are you saying?!

Actrise: She had great spirit and struggled mightily against the curse. But now she is wholly a vampire, desperate for blood. Ha, what joy! Two cousins fighting to the death! Ho ho ho! (Actrise fades away)

(after fight)

(Carrie’s Cousin dies in a beam of light)

Carrie: Alas, I could not save you…when I destroy Dracula, you will meet my mother in Heaven.

14. Reinhardt Vs. Death at Room of Clocks
(sickle flies past Reinhardt)

Reinhardt: Damn! (turns to see Death)

Death: Heh heh heh heh! Wretched cur, I will slash you to pieces!

(Reinhardt dodges several sickles but one hits him in the back stunning him)

Death: This is the end!!!

(summons a volley of sickles and throws them at Reinhardt)

(Rosa jumps in and embraces Reinhardt, all the sickles hitting her)

(Rosa falls and Reinhardt cradles her)

Death: Have you forgotten your blood, girl?! You would give your life for him?

Reinhardt: Rosa?! Why…?!

Rosa: …your heart is strong and pure. You can defeat Dracula…as long as he exists, the horror continues. No one deserves my fate.

Reinhardt: Have no fear! I will kill the Count!

Rosa: …good. Ah, I fear death. My sinful soul cannot hope for forgiveness.

(Reinhardt makes the sign of the cross)

Reinhardt: God of compassion, forgive her. Father, forgive us our sins and lead us into eternal joy…God has forgiven all, Rosa.

(Rosa is clutching a crucifix to her bosom) (goes limp and fades) (Reinhardt stands and faces Death)

Reinhardt: But you…you I can never forgive!

Death: Heh heh heh heh! Vampire killer, you mourn a vampire’s death?

Reinhardt: This is not the anger of a vampire killer. This is the rage of all humanity!

(after fight)

Death: Arggggh! Scum of a Belmont!!!

Reinhardt: Back to your dark realm! Soon I’ll send Dracula to join you!

Death: Urggggh! Cocksure youth! I’ll wait for you in Hell! Be sure I will keep a warm place for you!

(pentagram appears under Death and sucks him into oblivion)

15. Carrie and Actrise at Room of Clocks
Actrise: You surprise me. To be able to defeat the Fernandez warrior. It is still not too late. Give your soul and power to Dracula! It is a simple matter…sacrifice the lives of 100 children. I slew my own child to attain this prize of eternal life!

Carrie : …she was really only my stepmother. But my mother gave her life to save mine. She truly loved me. She showed me happiness. Your child received no love from her mother…that’s, that’s pathetic…

Actrise: Oh dear, you make me so sad…looking at me just as my child did…how pitiful! I love no one in this world other than myself! I will gouge out your heart as a gift to my lord!

(after fight)

Actrise: It can’t be! You have defeated me! Me! Me!!! (freezes in a crystal and shatters)

Carrie: I have the power to subdue Dracula himself. You had no chance. Dracula knows this. He used you merely to delay me. Dracula, Prince of Evil…only you I can never forgive!!!

16. Reinhardt/Carrie and Renon at Castle Keep
Exactly the same as with Cornell.

17. Reinhardt/Carrie and the vampirized Charlie Vincent
Charlie: I warned you…it does not do to treat vampires lightly. Your weak skills will be of no help to an experienced vampire hunter.

(boss fight begins)

18. Reinhardt/Carrie Vs. Dracula Servant at Castle Keep
(coffin lid flies off with bang)

(mist fills the room)

Servant: Ho ho ho ho ho. Worm, you dare oppose the power of darkness? Is it death you seek?

(mist takes form of Dracula Servant and he comes down from above)

Servant: As you wish. Come, I will tear you limb from limb.

(after fight)

Servant: Arrrrgh! Urgh! Ugh. Hah. Ah. Ah ha ha ha ha ha!!! So you thought you had won? To save the world is not so simple. Miserable creature. How dare you oppose my evil might. Darkness will rule. Die, weak fool! (Dracula falls and vanishes in gold light) (cape falls to the ground and burns)

19. Reinhardt/Carrie and Malus
(if player did not take too long reaching the Castle Keep and thus did not fight Charlie Vincent as a vampire)

(player runs out of the tower and down the flights of stairs as it crumbles)

(near the bottom, player sees Malus riding a bat-winged horse)

(rides an elevator to the rooftop and meets Malus) (Malus disembarks)

Reinhardt: What evil is this? It surpasses even the foul aura of Dracula. Malus, what are you?

Carrie: The strength of this evil surpasses even Dracula’s foul aura. Malus, what are you?

Malus: …you have destroyed my servant. I did not expect such power. Enough! Now you face the dark lord himself.

Player: What? Not Dracula?! You…the dark lord? Oh no!

(energy surrounds Malus and transforms him into the True Dracula)

Dracula: Imbecile. You thought you could defeat me? I waited only to regain my full power. Now I will crush you! I, Dracula Vlad Tepes! Slaves, welcome the return of your master! You have killed my servant, the guardian of my sleeping spirit. Now, after 100 years, I return in the body of this child. I never dreamed it would last so long…ah the wasted years! I live again!!! Miserable worms! Your rightful lord has returned! I will wrap the world in darkness and crush all to my will! On your knees before the might of Dracula! Oppose me and die!!!

(after fight)

(lightning surrounds Dracula and reverts him to Malus lying prone)

(Malus slowly gets up and player kneels before him)

Malus: Where am I? What has happened to me?

(player offers hand) (Malus reaches to take it) (is suddenly doused by holy water)

Charlie: You cannot deceive me!

(Malus is reeling and bathed in flames)

Malus: Arrrrrrgh!

Charlie: Ha! Your appearance does not fool me. Do you still not understand? This child is really Dracula! Hah! Try to stop me, would you?

Malus: Miserable human scum! How long do you think you can oppose me? Very well…prepare to cower before the true shape of Dracula! (white out to the battle with Dracula’s dragon form)

20a. Reinhardt’s Bad Ending
(you took too long before defeating Dracula’s servant, who is still believed to be Dracula)

Dracula: Arrgghhh!!! Urgh… Ugh. Hah. Ah. Ah ha ha ha ha ha!! So you thought you had won? To save the world is not so simple… Miserable creature. How dare you oppose my evil might. Darkness will rule! Die, weak fool! Ho ho ho ho ho!! (the servant is banished in a blaze)

Reinhardt: Rosa… I have avenged you…

(from behind a pillar, Malus appears)

Reinhardt: Malus!!

Malus: Is Dracula dead?

Reinhardt: Ah…

Malus: Are you sure Dracula will never return?

Reinhardt: That depends on what we humans do in the future.

(the two escape the castle) (when we rejoin them, they’re headed home on horseback)

Reinhardt: Dracula, prince of evil, has vanished into the dark abyss. But the sinful desires of humanity may yet allow his return. As long as I live… Nay, even after my death, the struggle will continue. This is the quest of all who inherit the blood of the Belmonts. When Dracula next returns will be long after my death. But whenver he comes, a new hero will arise to fight him. Perhaps it may even be this youth here.

(Malus is startled by this comment)

Malus: What?

Reinhardt: Oh, it’s nothing. Come, let’s go home.

(before fading out, the camera moves in for a close-up of Malus, whose eyes burn red) (Reinhardt is oblivious) (the credits roll)

20b: Reinhardt’s Good Ending
(after Drago is sucked into the underworld, Reinhardt is transported to the safety of a nearby mount cliff. From here, he watches the castle collapse. As he grieves, he witnesses a divine happening)

Reinhardt: …Tell me. Will this struggle against Dracula never end?

(a rose falls from the sky) (Reinhardt looks up to see even more roses falling, which signals the return to this world of Rosa)

Rosa: Reinhardt…

(they embrace)

Reinhardt: When desire rules people’s hearts, evil arises and Dracula can return. The fight between Dracula and humanity is endless. I know no way to escape this struggle against evil.

Rosa: Yes… That is the fate of humanity.

Reinhardt: But we have faith in each other and we have love. That gives us hope, and the strength to fight against despair. As long as we have hope, evil can never defeat us!!

Rosa: Reinhardt…

Reinhardt: Come, let’s go home. Your family will be waiting for you!

(for the final time, they turn and look toward the collapsed castle) (as they look on, the camera pulls back slowly before the credits begin to roll)

21a. Carrie’s Bad Ending
(you took too long before defeating Dracula’s servant, who is still believed to be Dracula)

Dracula: Arrgghhh!!! Urgh… Ugh. Hah. Ah. Ah ha ha ha ha ha!! So you thought you had won? To save the world is not so simple… Miserable creature. How dare you oppose my evil might. Darkness will rule! Die, weak fool! Ho ho ho ho ho!! (the servant is banished in a blaze)

Carrie: Fernandez warrior. Mother. Were you watching…

(from behind a pillar, Malus appears)

Carrie: Malus!!

Malus: Is Dracula dead?

Carrie: Yes…

Malus: He can never come back to life again?

Carrie: That surely depends upon what people do…

(the two escape the castle) (when we rejoin them, they’re headed home on horse-pulled carriage)

Malus: Say, Carrie… When we get back to the village… Will you marry me?

Carrie: What!?

Malus: Please, Carrie! Do say yes.

Carrie: But, this is so sudden…

Malus: I’ll make you happy, I promise.

Carrie: But we are both too young. It’s far too soon to get married.

Malus: Well then, when we grow up we’ll be married?

Carrie: Malus, you will become a brave warrior and protect me?

Malus: Yes! Whatever happens, I’ll protect you!!

Carrie: Is that so? Well, I’ll think about it…

Malus: No, no. You must promise now! Say you will be my bride!!

Carrie: Oh, all right. When you grow up, I will be your bride. Is that alright?

Malus: Yes. Very good. Now we have a binding contract…

Carrie: (startled) What? What did you just say?

Malus: Oh, nothing.

(following his response, the camera begins to tail back slowly) (the credits then roll)

21b: Carrie’s Good Ending
(after Drago is sucked into the underworld, Carrie is transported to the safety of a nearby mount cliff. From here, she watches the castle collapse. Afterward, she meets with a carriage-owning peasant who transports her away)

Peasant: It’s been two years since you visited your mother’s grave?

Carrie: Yes.

Peasant: Are you sure you want to get down here? I’ll take you up the hill.

Carrie: Thank you. This is fine. I want to walk the rest of the way.

(Carrie begins the slow walk up the hill, to her mother’s grave. She reflects and then places a bouquet at the headstone. As she leaves, the camera pans out) (soon after, the credits roll)
