However, Juste managed to defeat the count, and without his presence, the castle crumbles, so the three escape and watch the ruins collapse from a hillside in the distance. Lead by the dark priest Shaft, the cult sacrifices a woman, and her blood is just the evil touch needed to bring him back to the world of the flesh. Dracula had learned many things over the centuries, and this time, he decided to put them to use. The current vampire hunter in the land was Richter Belmont, so the count spent some time observing Richter, his girlfriend Annette Renard, her sister Maria Renard, and several other villagers.
Then, as he had done in the past, he kidnapped those individuals and swept them away to Castlevania, his ancestral home, after having his minions attack and burn the town. So, Richter was called into action, picking up the Vampire Killer whip to bring justice to the count. In the end, the two rescued the villagers and defeated Dracula, though he turned into an ethereal mist when defeated and escaped through a window, vowing to return again.
Still, the count's words resounded in Richter's head: "I am not the one who is evil. I am summoned by the evil nature of mankind to wreak havoc and do their bidding. His motives? Shaft wanted true and unmatched power and felt that Dracula was the one force he could receive it from. Yet, one man would stand in his way - Richter. Thus, he placed a powerful curse on Richter, managing to side him with evil, and this shift in the forces of darkness caused Alucard to awaken from his slumber that he had placed on himself to rid the world of his cursed bloodline. Alucard went to Castlevania to seek those that delved in the dark arts.
He encountered the grown Maria Renard several times, defeated Shaft bringing Richter to his senses , and in the end, defeated the prince of darkness, restoring order to lateth century Europe In their place, several organizations are formed to try and find ways to prevent Dracula from returning. The most prominent of these is the Order of Ecclesia.
Their source of magic comes from magical symbols called Glyphs, which are drawn on the users body. Barlowe, Ecclesia's leader, creates Dominus, the greatest Glyph of all, which should be able to stop Dracula. Shanoa, an Ecclesia member, has been chosen to be the bearer of Dominus, making Albus, another Ecclesia member, jealous because he was supposed to be the bearer of Dominus.
As Shanoa is about to absorb the three Dominus pieces, Albus attacks and steals them and Shanoa's memory. Barlowe tells Shanoa that she must get Dominus back and stop Albus before it's too late. After pursuing Albus, he leaves behind a map to the village of Wygol. Shanoa travels there, where she meets Father Nickolai, who tells her that Albus has captured all the other villagers.
Shanoa goes and rescues them and confronts Albus at Mystery Manor, where she kills him and gets the last Dominus piece. When she absorbs it, Albus's spirit comes to her and tells her that the reason he stole Dominus was because he loved Shanoa as a sister and didn't want her to suffer this horrible fate and warns her not to use Dominus. When Shanoa returns to Barlowe, she tells him everything. Barlowe reveals his true intentions to revive Dracula. He and Shanoa battle, but he sacrifices himself to summon Castlevania.
Shanoa heads to the castle and confronts Dracula. She uses Dominus and destroys Dracula. Shanoa is about to die, but then Albus comes and sacrifices himself to Dominus and saves Shanoa. She safely escapes the castle as it collapses. Vampire Hunter Morris Baldwin and his apprentices, Nathan Graves and Hugh Baldwin, rush to the castle in an attempt to stop the resurrection, only to arrive a moment too late.
Camilla, one of Dracula's minions, has just revived the Count and kidnaps Morris; the two apprentices then plummet down into the depths of the castle. Hugh urges Nathan to leave while he finds his father, but Nathan sets out to defeat the minions and then finds that Hugh was taken hostage. Dracula promises that he will return as long as people hold dark desires in their hearts. Nathan retaliates by saying that as long as people such as he are around, Dracula will always be defeated. This time, Dracula's minions seek to burn down villages in the search for sacrifices to augment his powers- the Count is not yet up to full strength.
One of the girls taken is Ada, the sister of Cornell, a man-beast who is off on ascetic training.

Cornell returns to find the town under attack; he rushes off to Castlevania to fight Dracula and his minions, saving the people from the Dark Lord's curse, but the Count would return a mere eight years later. All of the signs point towards Castlevania, and additionally, Henry, who was but a young boy in , is now on a mission from the Church to go to the count's dark abode in search of the children. In the end, they save the children and have a showdown with the dark master, defeating him once again. In a final showdown, Harker, Van Helsing, and Quincy Morris stake the count with a knife, killing him, but Morris dies from a gash inflicted on him by gypsies under the count's spell.
The vampiress, once raised from the underworld, uses her powerful magic to plunge the already war-torn landscape into darkness, and, in turn, revives her uncle Dracula. Not about to allow his father's death to be in vain, John Morris, along with his childhood friend Eric Lecarde, sets out to put an end to the madness. Oddly, the game references the real-life death of the Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, suggesting that his death was ordered by the countess Bartley. The Second World War has claimed millions of lives, leveled cities, destroyed nations.
The souls of the war's dead blanket the planet, lost, hurt, and angry. Their anguish summons an accursed castle of legend. It had appeared many times throughout history, bringing with it evil and darkness. The castle of Dracula, the Lord of Evil. It arrives in man's darkest hour, to push us over the brink, into ruin. Jonathan Morris, weapons expert, and Charlotte Aulin, magic expert, must enter the castle and face a new foe, Count Brauner. They discover that Brauner trapped Dracula in the Throne Room to prevent him from taking back his castle.
When he is defeated, the Count is free and our heroes must face him and Death in a two-against-two battle. Dracula was resurrected, but Julius Belmont, possibly Adrian Tepes In his ending of Castlevania Judgment, it says that he enlists the services of a Priest and most likely a relative of Yoko Belnades managed to defeat him.
Apparently, a family member of Mina Hakuba was also involved who performed the ritual to achieve the effect stated below. The ending of Castlevania Judgment implies that Aeon or someone in his service was also involved, but this is speculation. Castlevania along with the soul of it's master was sealed in an eclipse that occurred at the time of his death. After the battle, Julius lost his memory. The ending of Castlevania: Curse of Darkness makes it seems to reference it as well.

He also meets up with Genya Arikado Alucard , who defeats a group of demons and explains to him his ability to absorb monster souls. Soma must stop Graham, but realizes that he, in fact, is the reincarnation of the now completely destroyed Dracula, and this is why he has assumed all these powers. He manages to stop Graham's plans, but confronts Julius Belmont, though the two in the end do not kill each other. Ultimately, Soma destroys the Chaos present within the castle and gets the soul of Dracula under control without letting Dracula become dominant within him, and he and everyone else escape the castle.
The cult members were Celia Fortner, the leader, Dario Bossi, who held power over fire, and Dmitrii Blinov, who held the power to copy any ability and counter-use it. Celia's belief was that for the ultimate good to exist in the world, the ultimate evil must also exist. Dario and Dmitrii were known as the two "Dark Lord" candidates, who both had the possibility of becoming the Dark Lord himself.
Through the cult's evil actions, they managed to once again draw Soma to them for yet another battle. In the end, Soma defeated both candidates and destroyed a monster called Menace before it could be released into the world. The castle crumbling, everyone safely escaped to live another day.

Raku Harima Tsukamoto Alvarenga. Had this story been written in a different manner, Stoker would have not only lost his ability to exert greater control of the text, but would not have had the opportunity to start the novel with multiple plot lines, which is one of the main appeals of Dracula. Another advantage of the epistolary form is Stoker's ability to give us outside information, for example, the happenings on The Demeter, the ship that brought Dracula and his coffins to England. Without the ability of the author to insert the newspaper article regarding the mystery of the ship and the captain's log, the reader wouldn't know when Dracula had arrived, and thus the time-line of the story wouldn't have been as clear.
As well, the absence of a character with a narrating role on the ship would leave us with no information about what happened on the voyage of The Demeter to England. Harker unknowingly helps Dracula step into the role of an Englishman and gather intelligence on his "prey" through a series of late nights talks. Harker is a prisoner in the Castle.
Harker eventually escapes Dracula's castle and reappears in a convent in Buda-Pest, where he suffers from "brain fever. Harker's occupation as a solicitor comes into play later when he and his peers need to find the 21 missing coffins Dracula used to sleep in that were missing from the chapel at Carfax. Harker's investigation leads to the discovery and subsequent destruction of all but one of Dracula's resting places in London and Piccadilly. The culmination of the novel is when Dracula is staked to death by Harker in Transylvania. The compiled information helps defeat Dracula by the end of the novel.
Victorian commitment to monogamy is embodied through Mina's dedication to Jonathan. Unlike other females in the novel, Mina is a very complex character. She portrays intelligence and depth. He is described as having an aquiline nose, sharp teeth, and cold and pale skin. He is introduced through Harker's first narratives as one of his clients. From the very beginning of the story, Dracula is plotting and calculating a careful plan of attack in England. He has a library full of books pertaining to English law and culture, and even wants to learn the appropriate dialect and pronunciation of words.
Harker becomes suspicious of his host when he begins to see strange happenings, coupled with his host's odd eating and sleeping patterns. The novel is also filled with homoerotic scenes, and insinuations as to Dracula's sexuality in relation to both Harker and the Crew of Light. He executes a series of attacks in London but must flee back to his castle when his coffins are purified, but not before he is able to infect and eventually kill Lucy, as well as infect Mina.
His powers have limits, however. These limitations are crucial in the defeat of the vampire and his aversion to religious icons bring to light a main theme of the novel: the triumph of good over. While Dracula represents evil incarnate, Van Helsing is the embodiment of everything good. This religiously guided doctor is brought into the novel by Dr. Van Helsing's use of traditional folklore in diagnosing and combating Dracula acts as a critique upon the modernization of society. She is the first of Dracula's victims in England and is treated by Dr.
Seward and eventually Van Helsing. Lucy is eventually transformed into a vampire and preys upon children until Van Helsing and her suitors put her to rest. The only way to release Lucy's soul is to drive a stake through her heart, and cut off her head.
Renfield's interviews with Dr. Seward struggles to treat her with every modern treatment he has access to, but to no avail. In the end, it is old world traditions that are the only means of releasing Lucy from her vampirism. Stoker portrays Lucy's death as a release. She is finally morally purified and can rest in peace. He provides blood for some of Lucy's transfusions, is present at the discovery of Lucy as a vampire and her killing in the graveyard, and plays a major role in the end of the novel.
Quincy was instrumental in fighting the gypsies near Castle Dracula, and pays the ultimate sacrifice at the end of the novel. Quincy's sacrifice not only helps to save Mina, but all of England, as the infection of all of London and then Britain was Dracula's total objective.
At the end of the book, the reader learns that the Harker's named their son Quincy Harker, after Morris. Renfield is a mentally ill patient of Dr. At one point, Dracula tricks him into becoming his aid, and uses him to help attack mina.

Seward to be released from from the asylum, but is refused. Van Helsing to bring to light issues of morality? Does it portray scientific advance as positive or negative? Why did Stoker feel the need to add religion to his novel? As Jonathan Harker travels through the Carpathians he becomes more aware of his foreign surroundings. However, he is the one who is foreign in this land, projecting his belief system on the land and people around him. This then reverses itself later in the novel as Dracula becomes the foreigner in London. In both situations, the outsider is persecuted and hunted with the goal seeming to be the destruction of the invader rather than simple expulsion.
Dracula infects his victims, poisoning their souls and turning them into something unrecognizable. This metaphor can be seen as representative of the fears of the English in regard to mass immigration at the turn of the century. They feared that the immigrant population would infect the English way of life, poisoning their traditions and replacing them with "contaminated" foreign customs and practices.
There was a deliberate voluptuousness which was both thrilling and repulsive, and as she arched her neck she actually licked her lips like an animal I could feel the soft, shivering touch of the lips on the supersensitive skin of my throat, and the hard dents of two sharp teeth, just touching and pausing there.

This is one of the most erotic moments of the entire novel, not simply because of the suggestive nature of the vampiress' posture, but because of kind of tension that is built by the wildly contrasting language. Stoker presents her arched neck, reminiscent of a cat or snake that is ready to pounce or strike, yet she pauses just before the bite and her lips are soft and shivering. It seems an odd reversal of sexual roles and part of the sexual tension may be in the common fantasy of man's desire to be dominated by women, if only briefly.
Her power over him is apparent, as at any moment she could end his life. All the while, Jonathan seems to relish in it. It's not until the Count interrupts the scene that Jonathan seems to become aware of the peril he is in. The peril this scene represents is two-fold, on the literal level his life is in danger.
Yet the idea of succumbing to lust seems even more damning, given his constant mention of his affection for Mina. This infidelity would have haunted Jonathan for the rest of his life and put in jeopardy everything he has come to Transylvania to accomplish. His goals for his journey seem to be to get his life with his bride-to-be started on financially sound terms.
It is strange that in these few sentences there is more sexual language than in the rest of the novel between Jonathan and Mina. This scene in which Dr. Seward gives a blood transfusion to Lucy, is a strange twist on the way the vampires do the same act. Each recipient is having blood pumped into their system for survival, yet the way in which it is given seems to make all the difference.
Several men are presented as willing to give their last drops of blood to Lucy, and we see this as noble and praise it without question, yet the vampiric taking of the blood for survival is strangely at odds with this. However, it is said that the vampire can only take blood from a willing victim, and so the act is again complicated.
The act of the men being willingly drained of their blood in order to satiate Lucy's needs is an obvious foreshadowing of her coming vampirism, but the idea that modern medicine is at its root vampirism is certainly lying within this scene. This further raises the question of how technology is represented in Dracula.
There are a number of possibilities that could explain this passage. One is the idea that a good English woman as been infected by the foreign influence of the Count. The influence of the Count has corrupted her and essentially turned her into a cruel harlot, bent only on the satisfaction of her own desires.
One could also read this as a condemning of female sexuality. With his left hand he held both Mrs. Harker's hands, keeping them away with her arms at full tension. His right hand gripped her by the back of the neck, forcing her face down on his bosom.
Her white nightdress was smeared with blood, and a thin stream trickled down the man's bare chest which was shown by his torn-open dress. This is one of the most erotic scenes in the novel, curiously depicting what is widely considered the least erotic characters of the novel. The scene is representation of violent sexuality and borders on the notion of rape. The posture of the Count in relation to Mina suggests that he is restraining her while he penetrates her with his teeth.
This concept is reinforced by the language of the passage by using words and phrases such as "full tension, gripped her by the back of the neck, and forcing her face down. Later on in the scene Mina screams in terror at what has just been done to her, a far cry from earlier representations of vampirism when Jonathan and Lucy seemed to almost crave being drained. Mina's reaction signals the ideal of which she is type, and that she possesses no latent deviant sexual desires which is why the incident is as horrifying to her as it is to those who witness it.
In this quote Lucy Westenra's sexuality is made almost blatant. By desiring three men rather then one she is painted in the image of a promiscuous woman. This is the first time the reader gains a glimpse of Lucy's sexual desires, but it will not be the last. When she is attacked and fed upon she continually leaves at night while sleep walking, however, it is important to note that she must have invited Dracula in at one point in time as he cannot enter homes on his own bidding a point conveniently avoided by other characters in the novel. Lucy's own language in this passage convicts her of promiscuity, when she says "as many as want her".
This passage sets the tone for her role in Dracula and even helps to explain why she is Dracula's first victim. New York: W. Norton, Demetrakopoulos, Stephanie. May, Leila S. Roth, Phyllis A. UI Victorian Wiki.
