Alternate ending? #yes i just wanted an #joachim armster I just had to make this after beating Joachim Mode, the ending was satisfying and a little creepy. JOACHIM ARMSTER Name: Joachim Armster Nickname: N/A Age a close relationship with others, often making him seem cold and brooding. . Near the end of his first century in life, Joachim came to know jealousy.
Sypha's ending in Judgment mentions a woman being executed as a witch in the Wallachia region a few months before Dracula's rise, justifying her decision to disguise herself.
The Law of Conservation of Detail would suggest that this refers to Lisa herself. In that case, it counts as ingame support that the early events of Dracula's Curse occurred months after her death. Of course, this is post-retcon justification, and comes from a game that deliberately dances on the line between canon and noncanon.
Hector and Isaac are Dracula's effort at making people equivalent to the Belmonts on his side. There's no way in hell they're mortal. In Kojima's 'Prelude to Vengeance' manga, Hector gets lanced through the lungs by Drac's talons and thrown off the keep, and lives.
Isaac gets slashed across the gut and upper thighs, and lives. In the other manga, he gets cliffed. From a considerable height.
Joachim Armster - Works | Archive of Our Own
Dracula has an intense distaste for Mortals, and judging from his attempt to jab Trevor in the eyeball, he's tired of these Belmonts up in his grill already. Therefore, what better way to get them OUT of your grill than setting up someone who's as capable and tough and etc.
One gets the feeling that an awful lot of work went into making those guys what they are. There's only two of them, after all!
They use the hearts to feed their beasties too. Nice way to cut off someone's mojo supply. Apropos of very little, this troper keeps ignoring the retcon in re: Seriously, why his eye? Julius isn't a Belmont. He was the one who took up the Vampire Killer inbut he was from a branch family and wasn't a true descendant of the bloodline at all. Alucard had been unable to find a pureblooded Belmont descendant, but he had seen the other branch family members successfully defeat Dracula before, and his plan revolved around unrelated magical means, so he gave Julius the go-ahead.
Unfortunately, between his destroying Dracula and succumbing partially to his use of the whip, he was left without any memory of his past. Decades later, through contact with Soma, he did not truly recover his memory, but he was able to recall the events of Thus, he jumped to the conclusion that since he was the bearer of the Vampire Killer, he must have been a Belmont.
The others didn't have the heart to correct him, especially since he was in no physical condition to produce offspring and continue the bloodline. Still, with the whip in hand, he was useful to them. His defeat at the hands of Dario was not only the result of his age, but also increased weakness from continued use of the whip.
Hammer is an absolute badass, he's just somewhat modest and silly when he's not in combat. In Aria, you find Hammer in the library. Right after a BOSS. And he doesn't act at all like he needed to be rescued or anything. And he sells various weapons he happens to find lying around the castle, implying that he's capable of handling the monsters. The hair is a dead giveaway. He was meant to be playable in Dawn of Sorrow's Julius mode going by some dummied dialogue the text dump on gamefaqs has it.
He may or may not have been the Grant analogue, made redundant by Alucard's bat transformation and Julius's triple jump. Or perhaps Julius was given the triple jump because Hammer had to be discarded? Vlad Tepes, son of the Dragon, never returned from his Turkish imprisonment Rather, he was killed there by Matthias Cronqvist, who then replaced him and lived out his life as The Impaler which is why he was so vicious a ruler — he needed the blood to live, but didn't want anyone to know he was a vampire.
Matthias had decided that he needed to settle down and rule his own country, and poor Vlad was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Matthias snuck in, killed him, took his form, and returned to Walachia under his name. He then met Lisa, fell in love, and the rest is history. He kept the nickname of his alias as his title because it's so much more threatening than "Matthias Cronqvist". Taking a cue from a vampire movie they haven't ripped off yet, the Belmonts couldn't hold the whip because they were tainted.
The reason the Belmonts couldn't use the whip for a century is because a Belmont was turned while trying to rescue the beatiful daughter of an innkeeper who, it turns out, didn't want to be rescued. The Vampire Killer would have obviously smelled something wrong, but a naive young adventurer blinded by puppy-love infatuation wouldn't see a succubus under his nose if you dressed her up in a chicken suit.
I hear it takes a while to purge vampirism from the blood. Wait, wasn't it the brainwashing from Symphony of the Night that left the taint? It is rather shortly after that, chronologically, that we start getting other heroes covering for the Belmonts What an illogical way to taint an entire bloodline for two-hundred years.
Based on the timing, it's gotta be something Richter did — he was the incumbent at the turn of the 19th century, and only 50 years or so later, Shanoa is covering for the incumbent Belmont. Furthermore, in Portrait of Ruin, the Memory of the whip's last owner is of Richter. Maybe something Richter did while brainwashed tainted him, and consequentially his testicles and any children produced, with dark thingy? Think about it this way.
When Soleiyu was brainwashed, Christopher went to save him with the Vampire Killer in hand. Logically, Soleiyu didn't have the whip at the time of his corruption, and thus he wasn't in a position to be rejected by it. But Richter was holding the whip, so More Than Mind Controlperhaps? They never established that he was not too obsessed with killing vampires for his own good.
Richter was the lord of Castlevania for an undetermined amount of time. Mind control or no, he probably had to absorb and wield some serious dark magic while there. Either that or he's just that badass that he doesn't NEED dark power to control the joint — frankly if I were Slogra or Gaibon, I would not be questioning the authority of someone who very recently spanked my boss into the ground.
And the castle itself is dark magic — hold the title of Lord, and you'd absorb dark magic even without doing anything. Soma Cruz is a descendant of the Harkers This came from a game idea for "Bram Stoker's Castlevania", a Castlevania-style retelling of the original novel. Anyway, the idea was that Soma is a descendant of Johnathan and Mina Harker, from the original Dracula novel.
Due to what Drac did to Mina, the bloodline is, regardless of Dracula's death at the time, still "tainted", and unlike the other Dark Lord's candidates, Soma's blood is linked to Dracula's, making him the perfect candidate for his reincarnation. And heck, it could've been planned all along as a backup plan in case things went badly for Drac in Though, it still didn't quite go to plan Still, it would also help in making the "exchange student" thing from the translations easier to swallow, and otherwise, the period, chronologically, between the novel and the Sorrow games, it isn't unreasonable for the descendants of the Harkers to have moved to Japan in that time.
Vlad Tepes stole Mathias' powers. Another theory as to why Vlad goes by Vlad, and is never thought of as Matthias.
In short, Vlad isn't Mathias Cronqvist. Mathias had the powers of the Crimson Stone and Ebony stone, but never really did much of anything with them. And this time, he took a more active role as the Dark Lord. The love of Lisa held him down for a bit, but then her death sent him spiraling head-on into Dark Lord territory. The Vampire Killer Whip was warded over time to keep anybody from using it.
As a safety precaution, knowing that even Dracula can get servants of goodness working for him Amalaric Snipersmembers of the Belmont Clan, somewhat paranoid, steadily increased the wards and protections on the Vampire Killer Whip.
They, rather self-assured, didn't even consider the possibility that a Belmont may end up using the whip for evil deeds, as Richter did. Thus, the Belmonts ended up unable to use their own whip, and it took considerable scrambling to find a clan close enough to the Belmonts to be able to use it, but even then, the cost of using it would be high, all because of the wards slapped on over five-hundred years.
This explains nicely why, exactly, it took close to years for another Belmont to be able to use it — that's how long it took for the dark taint to be gone enough to not trigger the wards.
Soma's sudden jarring shift into Dracula in Dawn of Sorrow was due to Dmitrii's Soul Soma seems to be primarily a good person although his personality skirts between Lawful Good and Lawful Neutralbut as soon as he sees the visage of Mina die, he starts to turn evil immediately.
Incidentally, he doesn't just become wrathful, he dives into Dracula's personality instantly. The powers of Chaos and the darkness he absorbed were strong, but it seems that his dark emotions subsided after Dmitrii left his body.
Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse Castlevania Series Story FAQ for NES by ReyVGM - GameFAQs
Dmitrii definitely has the capability for darkness, and his soul affected Soma enough to make him enthusiastically evil. The Dark Lord is not necessarily evil Dracula abused his powers because of his own grudges with humanity and God, and if Soma would willingly become the Dark Lord, rather than being manipulated into it, he could use his powers without being evil.
The evil Soma is a direct result of outside influences pushing him to be evil — the first was Dracula's spirit, the second was Dmitrii's Soul or just trauma. It also follows that Chaos was evil only becuase of Dracula and not the other way around.
It helps that as far as we can tell, prior to Dracula's Curse, Dracula was a highly powerful God-spiting vampire lord who had the grim reaper and the forces of hell at his beck and call The existence of Kid Dracula does nothing to hurt that interpretation.
It should be noted, he was still rather dickish to Leon. Dracula not being entirely eeeeevil also ties into some esoteric stories about the devil being what he is by choice — he doesn't necessarily WANT humanity to fall, indeed it's quite the opposite — but damn it the little bastards just keep going DUR OKAY to every suggestion he makes—!
God is really eviland Dracula was actualy doing the right thing the whole time be it misguidedly by also blaming humans. It would be amusing if the final boss in a third Sorrow game was God or another holy being, since all the others have dark-aligned final bosses. Also, what kind of good God can only be good if there is a Dark Lord to offset him?
In order for good to exist, evil has to as well. So, by comparison, a mysterious, unpossessive God can be Good simply because His plan is beneficial in the long run; and a pandering, manipulative Satan can be Evil simply because his plan is to use others and then dispose of them once their usefulness is gone.
That still implies God somehow NEEDS evil to be good or to exist, which calls into question how good or god-like He can be if He requires evil to be that way. Let's say you asked a friend to loan you a dollar. If he did, then you would consider it a good thing. Specifically, because he had the option to not give it to you. Originally named Mathias Cronqvist, Dracula is a former mortal turned wicked following the death of his wife. His lust for vengeance turned him into an immortal vampire.
He desires to wage war against humanity for having killed his second wife, who was accused of witchcraft and burned at the stake, and take the world under his possession, but has been foiled by the Belmonts in every generation of his immortal life. The only known Belmont Dracula has been able to defeat, though posthumously, is Simon Belmont. Sometime between Leon and Simon, Dracula sired a dhampir vampire son named Alucard with his then-lover, Lisa.
Lisa was discovered and thus executed by humans as told during Symphony of the Night as a result. Her execution further fuels Dracula's hatred for mankind - an emotion not shared by Alucard, which sets the stage for Alucard's alliance with Trevor, and rescue of Richter. Despite being the primary villain of the series, his role is often passive, and he simply waits in his castle, letting his monsters confront anyone for him. His appearance varies from game to game, but a few recurring ones exist.
He is one of the playable characters in Castlevania: Dracula will appear in the crossover fighting game Super Smash Bros.
Ultimate as a stage character. The Adventure and Castlevania II: Death is often a boss fought toward the end of the game. He is considered Dracula's second-in-command and most trusted minion. Sometimes he has played an important role to the storyline, such as Castlevania: He is a playable character as the skeletal knight in Castlevania Judgment.
In most of his appearances, Death closely resembles the cultural personification of the Grim Reaperbeing a legless skeleton in a hooded cloak with a scythe. Like Dracula, he can change into a second form upon being defeated in the game. Death will appear in the crossover fighting game Super Smash Bros. Lords of Shadow has been speculated to be the version of Death of this universe, due to his relationship with Dracula.
Additionally, the Lord of the Necromancers is at one point referred to as "Death itself". In the game's sequelwhen Gabriel Belmont is forced into a confrontation with Zobek, he sheds his human form and takes on a more traditionalized appearance of Death including wielding a large scythe.
Simon Belmont[ edit ] Simon Belmont is the first protagonist to appear in the Castlevania series. Simon's Quest, it is revealed that Dracula placed a curse on Simon and all of Transylvania after he was defeated by him. To break the curse, Simon must gather the remains of Dracula in order to burn them at the ruins of Dracula's castle — though the fact that this will cause Dracula to return is unknown to Simon Dracula's Fang.
In the best ending, Simon breaks the curse, and Transylvania regards the bravery of the Belmont Family, though it is hinted that Dracula will inevitably return, as his hand rises from his grave. Simon is one of only two Belmonts to have faced Dracula twice in his lifetime, the other being his ancestor Christopher. However, in Castlevania II, each ending reveals that Simon is the only Belmont to die during the final encounter with Dracula. In Haunted CastleSimon has a wife called Selena, who is kidnapped by Dracula during their marriage.
Harmony of Dissonancethe main character Juste Belmont is Simon's grandson. Harmony of DespairSimon is an extra character purchased as downloadable content. He appears as he did in the original Castlevania. A special stage that recreates the game's castle layout can also be purchased. Simon Belmont appears in the rebooted series Castlevania: He seeks revenge for the murder of his parents and throughout the game is unaware that his father has been turned into a vampire known as Alucard or that Dracula is his grandfather.
The Game Master voiced by Andrew Kavadasa television cartoon featuring characters from contemporary games released for the Nintendo Entertainment System. He is depicted as an arrogant and vain vampire hunter who competes with the main character Kevin Keene for the heroine Princess Lana. His appearance was modeled after Hollywood stunt man Daniel Weinstein, famous for serving as the body image for other cartoons of the era.
Simon has a whip and a backpack of resources which he uses throughout the series. His appearance in the cartoon was met with criticism. Ben Rhudy of Monsters and Critics stated that he looks nothing like his video game counterpart, and that the show's creator DiC should have consulted the game before choosing this design.
Ultimate voiced again by Keith Silverstein. She is a servant of Dracula. Her name is a reference to the title character of the novel Carmillawhich predated Bram Stoker's Dracula by 25 years. Her first appearance was as an antagonist in Castlevania II: Dracula Xand Castlevania: Circle of the Moonand Castlevania Judgment.
She is a devoted worshiper of chaos and Dracula. Inshe successfully resurrected Dracula in her Austrian castle, although he hadn't regained his full power. To restore it, they planned to sacrifice the vampire hunter Morris Baldwin, father to Hugh Baldwin and mentor to Nathan Graves, during a lunar eclipse of the full moon.
As Nathan began making headway in the effort to rescue his master, Carmilla brainwashed Hugh to do her bidding and challenged Nathan to a battle in the Underground Waterway.
Although she died, Carmilla relished the fact that the rite to restore Dracula's power was nearly finished. Carmilla's appearances and names have differed. Her appearance was interpreted as a mask that leaked tears of blood. Until the release of Rondo of Blood, Carmilla and her mask were available in the game as a boss.
This was the first time in the series she was referenced by the name. Laura was the central protagonist and narrator from the original novel, Carmilla. She is a particularly vicious non-boss enemy in Portrait of Ruin, but is referred to as "Carmilla's eternal servant" in her bestiary entry. In the reboot Lords of Shadow, Laura is Carmilla's daughter, who challenges the main character Gabriel with dangerous games.
She appears in the crossover fighting game Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as a stage character, based on her appearance in Castlevania II: She is one of the titular Lords, ruling over the vampires and is the second lord faced by the protagonist, Gabriel Belmont.
She has a vampire "daughter" named Laura. Before sacrificing her soul to heaven, she was known to be a kind woman who loved all of Earth's creatures, and became the opposite as a Lord of Shadow.
This is a marked departure from the description of her in life in the original novel. However, the explicit sexuality sometimes attributed to her seen especially in Castlevania: Soma Cruz also states, after defeating Julius, that "You took it easy on me. The strength of a Belmont Furthermore, the Belmonts were exiled because their powers were seen as fearsome by the people of Transylvania.
However, it has not been confirmed if the Belmonts have a special power aside from the magical power of Sypha or not. The Belmonts' primary weapon is the Vampire Killeran extremely powerful holy whip that is especially effective against evil and unholy creatures, such as vampires. The Belmonts have also used sub-weapons as their other means to attack and they are generally very skilled in combat, whether it be with the Vampire Killer or sub-weapons.
Thus far, the Belmont clan has been the most powerful one in Castlevania due to all this. Belmont Clan members Leon Belmont Leon Belmont is the founder of the clan's tradition of vampire hunting and also the first known wielder of the Vampire Killer in its complete form, although he did not defeat Dracula, as Dracula did not exist at that time.
He was a knight once, but left his knighthood to pursue his betrothed's kidnappers, which led to the events of the game. After his efforts, the Belmonts' duty became protecting the people from darkness.
Belmont Trevor is the first Belmont to have defeated Dracula and as such, has gained legendary status. Dracula had attacked Transylvania with his legions and no man could stand against him, which forced the church to find a member of the Belmont clan. This led them to find Trevor, whom defeated hordes of Dracula's legions, found valuable allies on his way, and ultimately defeated Dracula himself.
Christopher Belmont A hundred years after, Dracula would re-emerge, more powerful than ever, and haunt Transylvania again. However, Christopher Belmont stood ready to face the Count and defeated him in combat.
Dracula feigned defeat, however, and waited 15 years to spot an opening, which he did when Christopher's son, Soleiyu Belmont was born.
