Gabriel is a warrior of the Brotherhood of Light, an elite group of holy knights who protect and defend the innocent against the supernatural. As an infant, he was [[DoorstopBaby found abandoned at the door]] of one of the Brotherhood's convents. It is not known who his original parents were. Some suspect he was the unwanted child of a local wealthy landowner, most likely from the [[ContinuityNod Cronqvist]] family, though this has never been proven. The Order named the boy after the blessed Archangel [[MeaningfulName Gabriel]] and raised him as one of its own. The precocious child quickly proved to be extremely talented, developing a mastery of the fighting arts unprecedented in the Brotherhood. Gabriel took the surname of ''Belmont'', after his love of mountains and the high places of the World (the name ''Belmont'' is of French origin, a union of two French words: ''belle'', meaning "beautiful" and ''mont'' meaning "mountain").

Gabriel eventually married his childhood sweetheart Marie, only for her to seemingly be killed by monsters while he was away. Gabriel swears revenge on the creatures of the night, and soon sets out on a quest for the elders of the Brotherhood to kill the three Lords of Shadow, hoping to find a way to bring his wife back in the process.

Trevor Belmont is the son of Gabriel and Marie Belmont. He was conceived in 1046, just before one of Gabriel's many long sojourns on behalf of the Brotherhood of Light and its fight against evil. Pan and the elders of the Brotherhood believed Gabriel to be TheChosenOne who would one day ultimately defeat the Lords of Shadow and redeem mankind, but they also foresaw dark omens ahead. The world would be saved, although a heavy price would be exacted on all. Pan saw terrible visions, portents leading to a dreadful fate for Marie and her newly born child. He therefore persuaded Marie to keep her child a secret from his father until Gabriel's quest was done, and in this single act, he saved the child from certain death.

Oblivious to his fate, Trevor was raised by the Brotherhood to be a warrior like his father before him, and the secret of his birth and his lineage was kept from him until manhood. He proved to be a skilled warrior, and had inherited his father's deep mastery of combat. During this time, he met and married Sypha and by 1067, they have a child named Simon.

When Dracula returned in 1072, the elders saw in Trevor the final hope for redemption, a way to strike a blow against the dark forces now inhabiting the old Bernhard Castle, an evil of their own making. Therefore, Trevor was informed of his true lineage, the fate of his mother and the true identity of her murderer; and so he sets off to the castle to seek revenge.

-->''Voiced by Alec Newman''

->''"My father came to this castle many years ago when I was but a child. He came to destroy the evil that lives here... he never returned."''

Born in 1067, Simon is the son of Trevor Belmont and Sypha Belmont. At the age of six, his parents were murdered by the forces of Dracula, and Simon was lucky to escape with his own life. Lost and alone, he was found in the forest by some of the mountain people, taken in and raised amongst them. However, he never forgot what had happened to his parents and vowed to deliver vengeance one day upon those responsible. He trained hard and was extremely gifted in combat, yet life was hard for young Simon growing up. Always an outcast amongst the tribe, he developed a strong will and stubborn attitude that would always boil over into rage, and men soon came to fear him and his prowess in the arts of war.

Many years passed, yet the rage and yearning for revenge never left his heart. So one day, he left the relative safety of the mountains and headed towards the land of his birth, to seek out the one they call the Dragon, to meet him face-to-face and destroy him forever, little knowing that the curse of his family name would lead him into darkness and a terrible truth.
* TheAce: In the ''Lords of Shadow 2'' intro, it's mentioned that Simon is such a skilled warrior that he even puts Trevor to shame. He becomes the first human to defeat Dracula.

[[caption-width-right:350:''" Trevor died a long time ago, Father...I am Alucard."'']]
-->''Voiced by [[spoiler:Richard Madden]]''

->''"This I promise: You shall not stand alone against him."''

The mysterious, silver-haired vampire "son" of Dracula. He seeks to aid Simon Belmont in his quest to defeat the Dragon and save the Belmont family from their cursed fate.

For tropes applying to Alucard before TheReveal, [[spoiler:see the Trevor Belmont section]].
* AntiHero: Alucard does some ''very'' nasty stuff in ''Lords of Shadow 2'', to the point he could be considered an UnscrupulousHero. Mainly [[spoiler: Feeding that family in the beginning to his father.]] He also has zero qualms with butchering Brotherhood soldiers in ''Revelations''.
** FridgeBrilliance can explain part of this. After all, The Brotherhood had repeatedly shown to be [[KnightTemplar rather intolerant]] of Vampires, and likely attacked Alucard on sight, not believing that a Vampire could possibly [[FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire be a good guy]]. After centuries of being hunted Alucard likely gave up trying to reason with them.
* TheAgeless
* {{Alucard}}: Named this by Dracula in reference to his origins.
* AnimalMotifs: Lions in ''Mirror Of Fate'', Wolves in ''2''.
* AntagonisticOffspring: Turns on his vampire "father" Dracula.
* AppropriatedAppelation: Dracula names him "Alucard" for lack of his real name, [[spoiler:and in reference to Trevor's dying words implying that they were opposites]]. As evidenced by a trailer for ''Lords of Shadow 2'', Alucard himself [[ThatManIsDead seems to like it]].
* TheAtoner:
-->'''Alucard:''' It seems fate has given me a second chance... Father.
* {{Badass}}
** BadassLongcoat
*** NoShirtLongJacket
* BarbarianLongHair: Considering the [[DarkerAndEdgier reboot]], this makes him manlier.
** LongHairedPrettyBoy: Has the appearance of an attractive man in his 30s with flowing white hair, despite his creepy-looking grey skin and SupernaturalGoldEyes.
** MessyHair: Has long, shaggy white hair.
** WildHair
* TheBeastmaster: Has an affinity with bats, for obvious reasons. They form his first secondary weapon in ''Mirror of Fate''.
* BlackKnight: First introduced as a mysterious man covered in black armor. [[spoiler:Including in ''2''.]]
* TheChessmaster: [[spoiler:Masterminds the entire plot of ''Lords of Shadow 2'' in order to ensure the defeat of [[TheGrimReaper Zobek]], {{Satan}}, and [[WhoWantsToLiveForever Dracula and himself]], and, barring his DemonicPossession by Satan, is wholly successful in each attempt carried out. The only reason the last portion of the plan is not carried out is because Dracula and Alucard decide to live as a family.]]
* CompositeCharacter: Of Alucard and [[spoiler:Trevor Belmont]] from the original continuity.
* CoolSword: The Crissaegrim, an ornate sword Alucard forged around the stake Gabriel used to kill Carmilla. He can also [[FlamingSword light it on fire]] and [[AnIcePerson coat it in ice]] because of two other swords he incorporated into it, giving abilities akin to his father's [[ArmorPiercingAttack Chaos Claws]] and [[LifeDrain Void Sword]] respectively.
* DarkIsNotEvil: Despite dressing all in black, he's a hero who battles his fellow monsters of the night.
* DemonicPossession: [[spoiler:Is possessed by Satan during ''Lords of Shadow 2'''s final boss fight.]]
* FriendlyNeighborhoodVampire
* GoodScarsEvilScars: Has cracks on his face in ''Lords of Shadow 2''.
* HeroesPreferSwords: His weapon of choice by ''Lords of Shadow 2'' is a single-edged ornate sword forged around the stake that killed Carmilla in ''Lords of Shadow''.
* HeroOfAnotherStory: [[spoiler:Since Alucard was TheChessmaster during ''Lords of Shadow 2'', it's clear he was doing things before and during the main game. The game's first DLC expansion is a bonus campaign that stars Alucard and goes into greater detail about his role.]]
* HunterOfHisOwnKind: A vampire who hunts vampires.
* IHateYouVampireDad: Wants to kill his vampire father, Dracula, both for turning him into a vampire and for generally being evil. [[spoiler:He eventually gets over this by the second game, seeking to help Dracula redeem himself by killing Zobek and Satan and then letting Dracula kill himself. By the very end of it, he seems content that Dracula just wants to live in peace, and it's implied he goes to join him and be together as a family.]]
* LickingTheBlade: Does this in the DLC for ''Lords of Shadows 2'' after certain executions. Since he's licking off blood, doing so heals him slightly.
* MyGreatestFailure: He failed to kill Dracula in the past, something that had severe repercussions for the Belmont clan. He has since made it his (un)life mission to end the Clan's curse, no matter how long it takes.
* MySpeciesDothProtestTooMuch: Doesn't embrace the BloodKnight and AlwaysChaoticEvil traits of his vampire brethren.
* MysticalWhiteHair: Hair turned white at some point with his conversion to a vampire.
* PowerCopying: Alucard can augment his body in certain ways when he drinks the blood of certain creatures. He does this twice in ''Mirror of Fate'', both with bosses.
* PrimalStance: It's subtle, kinda like the [[VideoGame/PrinceOfPersiaTheSandsOfTime Prince Of Persia]] or [[Franchise/AssassinsCreed the Assassins]]
* SuperStrength
* SupernaturalGoldEyes: His eyes are a golden yellow with slit pupils, contrasting his father's [[RedEyesTakeWarning crimson red]], and also suiting to his [[NobleWolf wolf motif]].
* TallDarkAndHandsome
* ThatManIsDead: In ''Lords of Shadow 2'''s prologue:
-->'''Alucard:''' [[spoiler:Trevor]] died a long time ago, Father. I am Alucard.
* VampiricDraining: His FinishingMove against most enemies in ''Mirror of Fate'' involves pouncing on their stunned form and ripping into their throats, draining them dry.
** VampireBitesSuck: It's quite fatal and really rather messy.
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: Can transform into a bat, wolf and mist, similar to the original one's abilities in ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaSymphonyOfTheNight''.
** {{Animorphism}}
** SuperSmoke
* WhipItGood: Uses a corrupt version of the Combat Cross, called the Dark Pain, in ''Mirror of Fate''.

[[caption-width-right:350:''"Darkness shrouds your soul."'']]
-->''Voiced by Anthony Howell''

->''"I am Victor... Victor Belmont. Commander of the Brotherhood of Light. Protector of humanity. And the last of my illustrious bloodline."''

The Belmont of modern day, and at the time of ''Lords of Shadow 2'', the last of the lineage. Victor seeks to destroy Dracula and at last restore the Belmonts' honor, even if it means dooming the world in the process.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Commander of the Brotherhood of Light.
* {{Badass}}: Knowing full well how his family has fared fighting Dracula, he still charges him head on. [[BadassFamily It runs in the blood]].
** BadassBeard
** HandicappedBadass: Is missing his right eye.
* DarkIsNotEvil / LightIsGood: Combines both tropes. Noticeably, like Gabriel before him, he uses both Shadow and Light magic, but less noticeable, is that he uses a gauntlet that was forged in hell, and can conjure pale white angel wings. His choice of equipment is dark plate armor, along with white robes.
* DefeatMeansFriendship: [[spoiler:When Dracula defeats him, he spares his life and gives him the antidote to the demon virus. This convinces Victor to help him, since he is evidently not quite the same being he was trained to hate and fight.]]
* FamousLastWords:
-->'''Victor:''' [[spoiler:Now [[{{Dracula}} you]] are [[LastOfHisKind the last Belmont]]...]]
* GoodScarsEvilScars: His face is heavily scarred.
* GenerationXerox: Even after 1000 years, the Belmonts still dress and fight similarly to their progenitor, Gabriel.
* HeroAntagonist: He's a demon hunter trying to kill the EvilOverlord Dracula. Unfortunately, [[VillainProtagonist you're playing as Dracula at the time]].
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:Offers himself as bait to the acolytes to give Dracula a chance to find them and put a stop to Satan's plans.]]
** StupidSacrifice: To a certain degree, because: [[spoiler:Victor receiving the cure to the virus never serves any other purpose other than to convince him that Dracula is not completely evil, though, as he sacrifices himself shortly after he receives it from Gabriel, is never seen handing it to anyone else, and the vial presumably disintegrates with his body.]]
*** [[spoiler:However, there is a fade-to-black after Drac hands him the serum, where Victor tells him to follow him.]] Presumably, he handed the antidote off to someone on the way out.
* InTheHood
* LastOfHisKind: He is the last surviving member of the Belmont bloodline. [[spoiler:Well, not counting Dracula and Alucard]].
* MirrorBoss: Uses the same tactics [[spoiler:Dracula used]] as Gabriel Belmont back in the first game.
* MythologyGag: Victor was one of the main characters from the cancelled ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaResurrection''.
** And prior to that, he was originally going to be called [[CastlevaniaChroniclesofSorrow Julius]].
* TattooAsCharacterType: Has a tattoo on his chest to illustrate his rough-and-tumble background.
* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: This is essentially the first incarnation of Victor Belmont to appear in any Castlevania game, [[spoiler:too bad he dies scant minutes after you meet him.]]
* VampireHunter: Hunts the vampire lord Dracula and his minions.
* WhipItGood: Has a Combat Cross of his own that, like previous models, functions as a chain whip.

!Supporting Characters

-->''Voiced by [[Creator/PatrickStewart Sir Patrick Stewart]]''

->''"Yes, old friend. It is I."''

Gabriel's mentor and ally. If the recorded chronicles of the Brotherhood are to be believed, Zobek is one of their longest serving warriors. The list of heroic deeds attributed to him is as impressive as his vast knowledge of the art of war or indeed the mighty fighting skills he can deploy, despite his age.

His weapon of choice is a simple longsword which he handles with skill and alacrity. Strangely, he likes to use an old-fashioned uniform of the Brotherhood of Light that, according to him, was inherited from one of his ancestors; one of the founding members of the Brotherhood of Light.

For tropes applying to Zobek after TheReveal, [[spoiler:see the Lord of the Dead section]].

* LiterallyShatteredLives: [[spoiler:How he is killed by Dracula, ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice on the Void Sword]], which is then yanked across his body, shattering its frozen remains.]]
* {{Narrator}}: Narrates the opening of each level. [[LargeHam Rather]] [[PurpleProse grandly]].
** UnreliableNarrator: Knows far more about Gabriel's situation and eventual fate than he lets on to the audience.
* TheNicknamer: Calls Gabriel "The Prince of Darkness" at a few points in his narrations late-game, in admiration of his un-paralelled grace and ferocity in battle.

Marie is the deceased wife of Gabriel Belmont and mother of Trevor.
* BackFromTheDead: [[spoiler:Maybe? It's never outright said if the Marie that shows up in the past in ''Lords of Shadow 2'' is just a memory or brought back by some form of divine intervention.]] The ''Revelations'' DLC heavily implies that [[spoiler:Marie is real since she appears in front of Alucard as well, or that she's some form of [[GodInHumanForm divine avatar]], given how she speaks]].
* BroodingBoyGentleGirl: She's the Gentle Girl to Gabriel's Brooding Boy.

* MightyGlacier: Even though he is capable of running (and faster than you would think for a giant armor) in the cutscenes, he is quite slow in his boss fight.
* PapaWolf: Created with the sole purpose of protecting Claudia, and he is ''not'' happy when she dies.

Laura was the "daughter" of Carmilla, who was taken from her true parents and turned into a vampire centuries ago. She first meets Gabriel in Bernhard Castle and challenges him to a game of supernatural chess. Gabriel beats Laura, and in a fit of spite the vampire attempts to kill Gabriel, only to change her mind and spare him when she sees Gabriel and the spirit of his dead wife embracing.

After the end of the main game, Laura enlists a distraught Gabriel to stop The Forgotten One, a mighty demon whose prison was weakened when Gabriel slew the Lords of Shadow. The two develop a friendship during this time, but in the end, Laura sacrifices herself to give Gabriel the power he needs to enter the Forgotten One's prison and prevent the demon's escape.

* BrokenFaceplate: Half of his mask is visibly broken. This doesn't seem to slow him down. [[spoiler:The cause is revealed early in Trevor's story]].
* ExpositionFairy: Amazingly, he fills the role despite being TheVoiceless for the majority of the game.
* StrangerBehindTheMask: You've been wondering who he is the whole time...and he's nobody. He's just a personification of Fate. They don't even tell you this ''in the game''; it's in a bestiary entry unlocked when you win.

[[folder:Zobek's Lieutenant]]
!!Zobek's Lieutenant

A black knight who wields the legendary sword Masamune. Who exactly he is and all of his past beyond that is unknown. He serves as Zobek's muscle since Zobek can't directly act for fear of the acolytes finding out where he is. [[spoiler:For the better part of ''Lords of Shadow 2'', he is actually Alucard, who killed and replaced him after an intense battle before the start of the main game, at the end of the ''Revelations'' DLC.]]
* BlackKnight: With a red tint on his right arm.
* BladeLock: Does this when parried [[spoiler:by Alucard, but Alucard is the better swordsman and always wins out]].
* DimensionLord: He fights by opening up starry dimensional rifts and either teleporting into them or summoning a storm of blades from them.
* KatanasAreJustBetter: And he draws it out of HammerSpace, no less.
* SwordBeam: Uses two, one that's narrow and needs to be dodged, and one that's wide and needs to be jumped.



[[folder:Dracula (Spoiler)]]
!!Dracula [[spoiler:(Gabriel Belmont)]]
[[caption-width-right:350:''For I am the Dragon, Dracul!!! I am the Prince of Darkness!!! That...that is my vengeance!!!"'']]
-->''Voiced by [[spoiler:RobertCarlyle]]''

->''"[[MythologyGag What is a man... but a miserable pile of secrets?]]"''

25 years after the events of ''Lords of Shadow'', Dracula returns from decades of exile to take up residence in the old Bernhard Castle that once served as the stronghold for Carmilla and her vampire brethren. Now a powerful vampire himself, he soon marshals the creatures of the night under his banner. With these dark forces, Dracula plans to wage war on both his former allies in the Brotherhood of Light, and the world that betrayed him.

'''Note:''' For tropes applying to Dracula before TheReveal, see [[spoiler:the Gabriel Belmont section]].
* AdaptationalHeroism: As shown in ''2'', [[spoiler:despite his villainous actions in ''Mirror of Fate'', this version of Dracula is still ultimately a heroic person who does want to fight evil. He's just sick and tired of being treated as if ''he'' is the evil, so he decides to sometimes [[ThenLetMeBeEvil go along with it]].]]
* AndThenJohnWasAZombie: Was a monster hunter of the Brotherhood of Light, only to become a monstrous vampire himself.
* AnimalMotifs: Dragons.
* AntiAntiChrist: Zigzagged, He's Satan's equal in combat and evil and could easily rule beside or even usurp the fallen angel as lord of Hell, but chooses to put himself between Satan and Earth, mostly because if anyone will destroy humanity, it's going to be ''him''. [[spoiler:This becomes a much straighter version of the trope in the climax of ''2'', when he's fighting against Satan for an unambiguously good reason.]]
* ArchnemesisDad: To his son Alucard [[spoiler:aka Trevor]].
* AsskickingEqualsAuthority: Rules the monsters of the night because he's a GodOfEvil none of them dare cross.
* {{Badass}}: Easily the most powerful incarnation of Dracula in the franchise. His counterpart in the original universe has been defeated countless times by the Belmont clan. This Dracula ''slaughters'' the equivalent, The Brotherhood of Light, like cattle constantly.
** BadassLongcoat: His outfit of choice is an ornate blood red [[note]] It's actually made out of real blood; Dracula's shown channeling it into a solid form early on [[/note]] longcoat with armored shoulders.
*** NoShirtLongJacket: When he isn't a WalkingShirtlessScene.
** EmpoweredBadAssNormal: Was formerly a extremely badass vampire hunter, with no special traits whatsoever. After becoming The Dragon, he only got more powerful.
* BagOfSpilling: Loses most of his powers by ''Lords of Shadow 2'' due to centuries of sleep, and has to re-explore his castle to get them back. This is justified with the use of stealth.
* BecauseDestinySaysSo: [[ThenLetMeBeEvil Revels in being evil]] because he thinks destiny has given him no other choice.
* BigBad: Is the main antagonist of ''Mirror of Fate''.
* BloodMagic: Requires blood to perform his more powerful magical techniques.
* BloodKnight: Revels in battle and violence.
* BloodSplatteredWarrior: Ends up getting covered in blood after he stabs an opponent through the chest or bites into their neck and drains them.
* BossBanter: Taunts you in ''Mirror of Fate'' over the curse of the Belmont bloodline during his boss battles.
* CharacterDevelopment: In ''Lords of Shadow 2'', [[spoiler:he starts out as a VillainProtagonist. But by the end of the game, he's more of an AntiHero]].
* CompleteImmortality: Is an everlasting demonic god who cannot die, not even by his own hands. The ''only'' thing that can kill him is the [[InfinityPlusOneSword Vampire Killer Combat Cross]] stabbed into his heart, and he doesn't have that for most of his undeath.
-->'''Dracula:''' The waters of my life flow ever on... never stopping...
* TheChosenOne: He is ''still'' God's chosen champion, even after becoming the [[GodOfEvil prince of darkness]]. This is why holy objects don't harm him like they would other monsters.
-->'''Dracula:''' The power of your God cannot destroy me... Because ''[[WhamLine I am his chosen one!]]''
* CoolChair: His throne in Bernhard Castle.
* CrossMeltingAura: A variation. As he is still TheChosenOne for God even after his FaceHeelTurn, holy objects do not harm him as they would other kinds of monsters. This is taken to the "melting" part when he takes the time to pray alongside a Golden Paladin of the Brotherhood of Light in the prologue...[[DivideByZero causing all of the remaining soldiers of the Brotherhood of Light in the area to die in a blast of light]].
* DarkIsEvil
* DeathSeeker: By the modern day, he wants to get rid of his CompleteImmortality and die.
* DespairEventHorizon: Went evil after losing everything, including his humanity, in ''Lords of Shadow''.
* TheDreaded: It's mentioned in ''2'' that the likes of both Zobek and Satan are terrified of Dracula, to the extent that he had to [[FakingTheDead fake his own death]] to draw them out of hiding.
-->'''Dracula:''' All shall come to fear me.
* DueToTheDead: After he discovers [[spoiler: that Trevor is his son]] upon his death, Dracula gives him a proper burial.
* EnemyMine: His relationship with Zobek in ''2'', a departure from the VillainousFriendship that usually comes up between these two characters in the prime continuity. [[spoiler:Ultimately, this is subverted, as he was unknowingly [[BatmanGambit using him]] and betrays Zobek.]]
* EvilerThanThou: Continues his quest to destroy the OmnicidalManiac GodOfEvil, the Forgotten One, even after becoming a [[AndThenJohnWasAZombie monster]] himself.
-->'''Dracula''': Look upon me, demon, for I am darker and more terrible than thee.
* EvilIsHammy: Loves [[EvilLaugh laughing]], [[IShallTauntYou taunting]] his opponents and [[YouHaveNoChanceToSurvive gloating]]. [[spoiler:He's toned down significantly by ''2'', since he's pretty much tired of [[PunchClockVillain going through the motions]] already.]]
* EvilLaugh: An EvilOverlord who loves to laugh in his opponents' faces.
* EvilOldFolks: His aged form.
* EvilOverlord: Ruler of all the monsters and undead in Bernhard Castle.
* EvilCostumeSwitch: After becoming evil, he discarded his Brotherhood of Light garbs and switched to a more demonic-looking BadassLongcoat number.
* EvilVersusEvil: Was pretty much the greatest threat to the world for centuries. Come ''Lords of Shadow 2'', however, and he may be the only thing standing between Satan and the modern world. [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] by Drac himself, saying that him being feared by others prevents those who are EvilerThanThou to arise and cause more havoc.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: He still has some measure of his humanity left, namely his love for his family. By ''2'', it is explicitly stated that his love for his son is the only pure human emotion he has left.
** He built tombs for himself, for his late wife, and for [[spoiler:Laura]].
** He was also horrified when he learned of the true identity of [[spoiler:Trevor]], something that came tragically too late.
* FaceHeelTurn: Went from a hero to the EvilOverlord.
* FallenHero: Was a former member of the heroic Brotherhood of Light.
* FemmeFatalons: After becoming a vampire, he gained long, pointed fingernails.
* GeniusBruiser: His fighting style is to brutally dominate and overwhelm his opponents, before literally tearing them apart with his fangs. He also ''loves'' violence and bloodshed. And yet he's ''extremely'' cunning and intelligent, which the acolytes severely underestimated,
* AGlassOfChianti: Seems to be a fan of drinking wine, only really stopping from his slouch and drink to [[MythologyGag throw it away]] and go to a fight if it comes to him. He implies, however, that [[OurVampiresAreDifferent that's not wine]].
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: Is a PhysicalGod with glowing red eyes.
* GodOfEvil: Became an immortal demonic god of darkness after taking the powers of and then killing the old one. Also styles himself as the one and only "Prince of Darkness" as an act of vengeance against those who betrayed him.
* GoodAllAlong: In [[spoiler:''Lords of Shadow 2''. See the HeelFaceTurn entry.]]
* HeelFaceTurn: He made one [[spoiler:before the beginning of ''Lords of Shadow 2'', agreeing to work alongside Alucard to destroy Satan once and for all. The entire game is actually a massive BatmanGambit on his and Alucard's part.]]
* HeroesPreferSwords: In Lord of Shadow 2, The Void Sword seems to be his favorite weapons, as he use it in a lot of cutscenes. [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome Not that]] [[EverythingsBetterwithSpinning we complain.]]
* HeroKiller: In this continuity, not even being a [[PlotArmor Belmont]] is guaranteed to protect you from him.
* HesBack: An exceptionally twisted version. Dracula returns from years of exile and soul searching to ''[[FaceHeelTurn wipe out his former allies and take the world for himself]]''.
* HumansAreTheRealMonsters: Wants to destroy the human-filled Brotherhood of Light because they lied to and betrayed him. Best said in ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaLordsOfShadow2''.
-->'''Dracula:''' [[VideoGame/CastlevaniaSymphonyOfTheNight What is a man... but a miserable pile of secrets?]]
* {{Hypocrite}}: One of the main reasons he starts his initial onslaught against the Brotherhood of Light is because [[spoiler:they sent his own son after him and essentially tricked him into killing his own flesh and blood.]] However, when Simon shows up on his doorstep, [[spoiler:he's more than willing to use his powers to turn him into a meat puppet to fight Alucard. Given the space in time between Trevor's initial demise and Simon's arrival, and the fact that Dracula knew that Simon was a Belmont, he ''had'' to have known that Simon was Alucard's son.]] A JustifiedTrope, as ''[[VideoGame/CastlevaniaLordsOfShadow2 Lords of Shadow 2]]'' indicates that he ''[[DespairEventHorizon just stopped caring]]'' after that whammy.
* IAmTheNoun: Calls himself "The Dragon" or Dracul. (Note: he never uses the name "Dracula", which really means "[[{{Patronymic}} Son of Dracul/the Dragon]]".)
* ILoveYouVampireSon: He does care for Alucard deeply, though the feeling is not mutual.
* IShallTauntYou:
-->'''Dracula:''' You fight well. [[InTheBlood Worthy of the name "Belmont."]]

* LifeDrinker: Retains his youthful appearance by drinking the blood of others.
* LightIsNotGood: Still commands the power of God.
* LongLostRelative: For the Belmont clan.
* LoveMakesYouEvil: Went evil when God wouldn't save his family.
* MagicKnight
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: [[spoiler:Realizes that Trevor was his son ''right after'' he killed him, and in a panic, begs for him to live and ultimately turns him into Alucard]].
* NominalHero: Becomes this by the time of ''2''. He's only a hero because his opponent is ''{{Satan}}''.
* OffingTheOffspring: Is forced to battle to the death with the descendants of his clan and his vampire son Alucard, something he secretly resents.
* OneManArmy: Wipes out an entire army of ''half-a-million'' holy knights and their DungeonPunk HumongousMecha by himself in the prologue for ''2''.
* OrcusOnHisThrone: In the siege during ''Lords of Shadow 2'''s prologue, he doesn't even bother getting up from his throne until the Brotherhood makes it all the way to his throne room.
* OurVampiresAreDifferent: Thanks to the events of the original game's ''Resurrection'' DLC, he's more a mix of a vampire and an outright GodOfEvil now.
* PowerFloats: After absorbing the powers of a demonic god, the Forgotten One, he gains the power to float in the air.
* PowerOfTheVoid: His "Void Sword" uses the powers of emptiness he took from the Forgotten One.
* PreAssKickingOneLiner: Uses the classic one-liner from ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaSymphonyOfTheNight''.

* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: Wants to kill the entire Brotherhood of Light for lying to and betraying him.
* SatanicArchetype: The "fallen warrior" type. Ironically, the BigBad and primary foe of Dracula is Satan himself.
* ScaledUp: His strongest attack in ''Lords of Shadow 2'' has him use his amulet to transform into a black dragon and crash down surrounded by chaos energy, doing absurd damage to enemies; it also makes him invincible for some time afterwards.
* SlouchOfVillainy: Enjoys lounging back on his throne in Bernhard Castle.
* SpontaneousWeaponCreation: Can form whips, swords, gauntlets, projectiles and giant dragons on the fly.
* SupernaturalGoldEyes: His eyes turn gold in his weakened, decrepit form.
* SuperSmoke: Transforms himself into a mass of smoke and embers while teleporting.

* ThatManIsDead / DoNotCallMePaul: Discarded his human identity after the events of ''Lords of Shadow'', and hates being called it by the time ''2'' comes around.
** At the end of ''Lords of Shadow''.
--->'''Dracula''': Don't you ''dare'' call me that! [[IAmTheNoun EU SUNT]] [[{{Dracula}} DRACUL]]!
** And in ''Lords of Shadow 2'':
--->'''Dracula''': I am no longer [[spoiler:Gabriel]], woman! I am the Dragon, Dracul! I am the prince of darkness!
* ThenLetMeBeEvil: Destiny said he would become evil, so Dracula decided he would enjoy it. [[spoiler:By the time of ''2'', however, he's more just going through the motions, and wants nothing more than to leave his castle behind and die.]]
-->'''Dracula:''' The terrible path of my destiny was now laid before me, and with absolute clarity of mind, I walk that path paved with the corpses of my enemies and friends alike with relish.
* TragicMonster: Was a protagonist in the first game, before he became a vampire to save the world from an OmnicidalManiac demonic god.
* UndeathAlwaysEnds: By the time of ''2'', he [[DeathSeeker wishes this were true]], but his status as a GodOfEvil with NighInvulnerability makes this impossible for him. His reward for completing his quest in ''2'' is promised to be his final death. [[spoiler:Ultimately, he decides not to, and goes WalkingTheEarth with his son, Alucard, who is similarly immortal.]]
* VillainProtagonist: You get to play as the vampire lord in the ''Resurrection'' {{DLC}} and ''Lords of Shadow 2''.
* VoluntaryShapeshifting: Can turn into smoke, bats, giant dragons and more.
** {{Animorphism}}
** SuperSmoke
* VomitIndiscretionShot: Uses a ''gushing fountain'' of projectile blood to corrupt the control crystal of the siege golem in the beginning of ''2''. He uses it later to break out of Raisa Volkava's grab in her boss fight.
* WalkingShirtlessScene
* WalkingTheEarth: [[spoiler:In the GrandFinale, Dracula decides against killing himself and subjects himself to this trope.]]
* WarriorPoet: Is a fairly philosophical and poetic man, when he's not [[EvilIsHammy chewing the scenery]].
-->'''[[VideoGame/CastlevaniaLordsOfShadow Dracula]]''': I will make this monster pay. He will know fear. He will taste the bitterness of defeat and look into the eyes of the dragon as his life spills onto the ground before him. Look upon me, demon. For I am darker and more terrible than thee. I am that dragon. And ''you''...are my ''prey''.\\
'''[[VideoGame/CastlevaniaLordsOfShadow2 Dracula]]''': The roots of evil are deep... irreversibly so in the hearts of men.

[[HeelRealization fell into darkness]]... and now... I am [[TheDreaded feared]] as the ''[[GodOfEvil Prince]]'' of Darkness. Ironic, don't you think?
* WellIntentionedExtremist: What he is actually implied to be towards the end of [[spoiler: ''Lords of Shadow 2''. He points out when talking to Alucard that, while he himself is an insane, amoral GodOfEvil, his presence actually prevents monsters even worse than him like Satan and Zobek from running rampant all over the world, since they are all so terrified of him.]]
* WhatYouAreInTheDark: [[spoiler:He gives Victor Belmont the antidote to the demon virus so he can keep the refugees from turning, despite having no pragmatic reason to do so. This is the biggest turning point of his path towards redemption, and what ultimately seals his HeelFaceTurn.]]
* WhereIWasBornAndRazed: Plans to destroy the Brotherhood of Light, the religious order that he once called home.
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: Is a FallenHero who jumped off the DespairEventHorizon when he [[LoveMakesYouEvil lost his family]].

* CanisMajor: Hulking wolf monster.
* DropTheHammer: And how! Until he transforms, that is.
* EvilSoundsDeep
* HoistByHisOwnPetard / ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice: Impaled through the jaw on his own hammer.
* InNameOnly: Cornell in the original continuity is a NobleDemon who desperately sought a cure for his condition for the sake of his human adopted sister. This Cornell is a FullyEmbracedFiend who gladly sends his pack out to hunt innocent villagers and has at least one genocide (the Aghartians) under his belt. That said, [[spoiler:the actual Cornell is probably more like this, as the demon controlling his body isn't the same thing]].
* LargeAndInCharge: He's the largest werewolf we see by a very large margin.
* LargeHam: Just like everyone else.
* LightningBruiser: Do ''not'' take for granted that you're out of his reach just because you're standing on the other side of the arena.
* MrExposition: The one to first reveal the AwfulTruth about the founders of the Brotherhood of Light to Gabriel.
* OlderThanTheyLook: Is centuries old, but looks like he's in his 40s.

The Lord of the Vampires and [[spoiler:one of the original founders of the Brotherhood of Light]].
* AbsoluteCleavage: In the first game.
* AndThenJohnWasAZombie: Heroine of the Brotherhood of light turned monster.
* {{Animorphism}}: Can turn into a over-sized bat creature.
* BackFromTheDead: Returns for ''Lords of Shadow 2'', in her human form. How, we don't know yet. Even Dracula expresses surprise at seeing her alive.
* BareYourMidriff
* DoesNotLikeShoes
* EvenEvilHasStandards: As a human, she was disgusted by Dr. Frankenstein's experiments on living humans to create artificial life. As a vampire, she decided to punish him for those atrocities.
** Also this:
--->'''Carmilla:''' You would kill those who founded your own Holy Order? You are even more cold-blooded than I. Who is the real monster here, Gabriel?
* EvilMakesYouUgly: When she transforms.
---> '''Carmilla:''' Look upon Carmilla! Is she not beautiful!?
* FlunkyBoss: In the first part of the battle, she summons 10 vampires, which you must defeat (or trick her into killing them, which is the trial for the level). When she transforms, she often summons two vampires to aid her. She stops after the first QTE.
* ForceField
* HemoErotic: When Dracula bites Carmilla's neck in ''Lords of Shadows 2'', she reacts as though she's receiving sexual pleasure from it.
* ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice
* IWasQuiteTheLooker: She was ''drop dead gorgeous'' as [[spoiler:one of the founders of the Brotherhood Of Light]].
** And in her human form for ''Lords of Shadow 2''.
* MsFanservice: Justified; it makes it easier for her to get close to her unsuspecting children-to-be. [[NotDistractedByTheSexy It doesn't phase Gabriel for a second, however]].
** She's even more of a fanservice character in ''Lords of Shadow 2''.
* FanDisservice: When she transforms into a giant bat-like creature.
* NotSoDifferent: Invoked when she compares Gabriel to the other Lords of Shadow. Gabriel isn't convinced.
* OlderThanTheyLook: Is centuries old, but looks like she's in her upper 20s to lower 30s.
* ProgressivelyPrettier: In the first ''Lords of Shadow'', Carmilla has a rather unsettling appearance; unnaturally tall and slender, with [[EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette chalk-white skin]] and [[BlackEyesOfEvil lifeless black eyes]]. In ''Lords of Shadow 2'', she has become a stunningly beautiful woman; this is because the incarnation of her we see in ''2'' is constructed from Gabriel's memories, both of his actual encounter with her and of a picture of her human form he saw once in ''Reverie''.
* RasputinianDeath: Gets staked, smashed, impaled on a steeple, and then staked again so hard that the stake ''breaks off in her chest''. Blimey.
* SomethingOnlyTheyWouldSay: This works against Carmilla when she disguises herself as Maria, mostly because she still speaks like TheVamp.
* SexyWalk
* ShockAndAwe
* StatuesqueStunner: She is definitely the tallest woman in the game (taller even than Gabriel), and [[JustForPun she can stun you alright]].
* TheVamp: Tries to seduce Gabriel with promises of pleasure and power before they fight.
* VillainessesWantHeroes: Her character description in the second game states that she is madly in love with Dracula. Unfortunately for her, he will never reciprocate.
* VillainsNeverLie: During their pre-battle dialogue, Carmilla predicts Gabriel's fate.
* WeCanRuleTogether: Tempts Gabriel by saying he can rule by her side. He doesn't buy fact, he doesn't even seem to care.

** RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver
* {{Yandere}}: To Dracula in ''Lords of Shadow 2''.

!!Lord of the Dead [[spoiler:(Zobek the Necromancer)]]
-->''Voiced by [[spoiler:[[Creator/PatrickStewart Sir Patrick Stewart]]]]''

->''"Finally, it is time for the truth. Let us remove... our masks..."''

The final Lord of Shadow. He cast the spell that separated the Earth from the Heavens, and was also personally involved with the death of Gabriel's wife.

* AndThenJohnWasAZombie: Hero of the Brotherhood of light turned monster.
* BackFromTheDead
* BlackMagic
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: Granted, he was already pretty evil beforehand.
* CompositeCharacter: Of Death and Shaft from the original series.
* DemonicPossession: Was possessed by a demon of Hell. Granted, as a Lord of Shadow, he was already an EvilOverlord before that, but it probably contributed to his more extreme OmnicidalManiac tendencies.
* EvilGloating
* EvilLaugh
* EvilOverlord: Ruler of the Necromancers.
* EvilPlan: Had Gabriel's wife killed and separated the Earth from the Heavens in order to make Gabriel go on a quest to obtain the God Mask.
* EvilSorcerer
* {{Expy}}: Of Death from the original ''Castlevania'' series, as his monster form in ''Lords of Shadow 2'' demonstrates. According to [[WordOfGod Dave Cox]], he also takes elements from Shaft from ''Symphony of the Night''.
** FallenHero
* TheGrimReaper: Molded his form in ''Lords of Shadow 2'' to be fitting to the folklore version of the grim reaper, making him appear far more like Death than he did in the first game.
* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: Helps you for most of the game, then turns out to be the final [[EvilOverlord Lord of Shadow]] and EvilAllAlong. But then it's revealed he was [[DemonicPossession possessed]], and centuries later he tries to recruit Dracula to [[VillainProtagonist stop the second coming of Satan]] [[spoiler:only to turn on you again when he learns Dracula was plotting with Alucard to let Satan be resurrected so he can kill him for good, and then do the same to Zobek]].

!!Satan (Lucifer The Fallen)
-->''Voiced by JasonIsaacs''

->''"It is my divine right to rule by [[{{God}} His]] side as an equal... or perhaps more than that."''

The true BigBad of ''Lords of Shadow''. When Death breached into Hell in his endless quest for knowledge, Satan brainwashed the Necromancer to be his pawn in the fallen angel's bid to obtain the [[MacGuffin God Mask]]. Through most of the story, Satan is a background influence, controlling Death from the shadows and quietly haunting the dreams of any unlucky enough to stand in the way of Gabriel's quest.

When Death obtains the completed God Mask from Gabriel at the end of the game, Satan [[MurderByCremation lights his pawn on fire]] and takes the mask for himself. Satan then plans to use the God Mask as means to re-enter Heaven, and even offers Gabriel a place at his side, but Gabriel refuses the fallen angel's offer. Following a battle between the two, Gabriel snaps Satan's neck, sending the angel back to Hell.

However, this is not the end of the fallen angel. In the modern day, Satan prepares for a second chance to breach the mortal plane, and to take revenge on all who ruined his plans centuries before.

* IShallTauntYou: Was taunting the Wygol Village priest about Gabriel and Zobek's arrival in the holy man's dreams. He also spends the entirety of his battle with Gabriel in both console games taunting him with lies and boasts.
* ItsAllAboutMe: Is extremely prideful and arrogant, believing that he deserves to rule in Heaven alongside God as an equal or as someone even greater. He thinks very little of humanity, referring to them as "monkeys beyond redemption", and quite obviously doesn't care for his minions or even offspring at all given how he [[spoiler: cruelly rips off the face of the acolyte who summoned him because he failed to notice that Gabriel and Alucard were there and in a position to foil his plans.]]

[[folder:Daemon Lord]]
!!Daemon Lord
-->''Voiced by : Richard Ridings''

->''"Tell me--do you like being a creature of the night?"''

A powerful monster from the Shadow Plane that is first encountered in the prologue to ''Mirror of Fate''. It gains an intense desire for revenge after Gabriel captures him for the Brotherhood of light. [[spoiler:He is later released by a group of witches who want him to take Dracula out, only to be maimed and killed by Trevor.

* CutsceneBoss: Trevor's encounter with him.
* DemonLordsAndArchdevils: Obviously.

[[folder: The Toymaker]]
!!The Toy Maker
--> ''Voiced by: Mark Healy''

->''[[GigglingVillain High-pitched chuckle.]]''

Once the best pupil who served under Gandolfi, the creator of the Combat Cross that Gabriel used, The Toy Maker was cursed by Walter Bernhard, becoming a clownish, demonic version of himself that ceaselessly creates bizarre and macabre tools of destruction, sometimes with help from the [[spoiler:resurrected Daemon Lord]]. Many obstacles, weapons and even some enemies are created or influenced by the Toy Maker, making him an indirect major antagonist. He makes a return in ''Lords of Shadow 2'', having redeemed himself after a child who found his way into the castle reawakened a spark of the kind man he once was, causing him to remove his heart (and break the curse) and wait until the day someone would wake him up.
* AffablyEvil: When he wakes up in ''Lords of Shadow 2'', he seems genuine in his niceness towards Dracula, even though he couldn't really remember who he was due to LaserGuidedAmnesia.
* BeatTheCurseOutOfHim: In ''Lords of Shadow 2''.
* BiggerBad: In a lot of ways, in ''Mirror of Fate''. Though we have yet to see the true extent of what he's capable of.
* BloodFromTheMouth: Disturbingly taken UpToEleven when the blood curse is lifted.
* CoolOldGuy: To an extent. Keep in mind, he's worked for Dracula. But to those he's allied with, and sometimes, doesn't even know, he seems like a genuinely nice person.
* EvilWizard
* EyesDoNotBelongThere: Not on himself, but he implants eyes on many of his creations. For example, before reawakening him in the second game, the container he's in has large human-like eyes implanted on the inside that look around at what's going on.
* FlunkyBoss: Sends out the Toy Knight and the Toy Dragon to narrate a story during his fight before coming down himself.
* MadScientist
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: He was a legitimately kind-hearted man before being cursed by a demon. In ''Lords of Shadow 2'', after he's been cured of his possession by the Castle's blood and his amnesia, he remembers who he was and what he did, and breaks down in tears.
* PlayingWithFire: Some of his more powerful puppets use fireworks or openly breathe flames.
* SlasherSmile
** MoreTeethThanTheOsmondFamily: In his possessed demonic form, he has these. In his human form in ''Lords of Shadow 2'', he has more normal human features.
* SquishyWizard
* TheUnfought: Only in ''Mirror of Fate''. He's a boss in ''Lords of Shadow 2''.
* VomitIndiscretionShot: How his corruption is lifted; he vomits a stream of blood that was controlling him.
* WouldntHurtAChild: According to his backstory presented in the theater in ''Lords of Shadow 2'', the innate goodness in him prevented him from harming a child who wondered into the castle.

!!Toy Knight and Toy Dragon

--> ''Voiced by: ?''

Two Puppets used by the Toymaker when he fights Dracula after being taken by the Castle's blood. They are part of a story Toymaker tries to narrate during the fight. One is a cartoonishly disproportioned knight with a lance and shield, the other is a serpentine puppet that spews flames.
* BrawnHilda: The Toymakers narration of Toy Knight details that he is fighting for his love, who bares the trope's name.
* CoDragons: with one of them being a literal dragon.
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: In the Toymaker's story, Toy Dragon only decided to start causing destruction and chaos when Toy Knight fell, leaving the kingdom vulnerable.
* GiantSpaceFleaFromNowhere: In a boss fight against Toymaker, you'd more or less expect him to come right after you in a mech. He does, but randomly throws in these two at the beginning and middle of his fight, narrating a story using them.
* JoustingLance: The Toy Knight carries one.
* KnightInShiningArmor / BlackKnight: In The Toymaker's narration, the Toy Knight is a knight in shining armor to his kingdom, His being an enemy and having a dark color scheme also puts him into the black knight category.
* LargeHam: Though covered up by the more hammy Toymaker, the Toy Knight is also one, spouting knightly dialog during his fight.
* NoNameGiven: Actually Averted, the Toy Knight's real name is Sir Walter Degrais, and the Toy Dragon's name is Sarengazlix (or something similar). Whether or not this name was made up, or if the knight puppet was actually the name of a person before being bound to a puppet, is unclear.
* OurDragonsAreDifferent: Toy Dragon is a marionette puppet who can use fireworks to attack.
* PlayingWithFire: Toy Dragon, who attacks by using traditional fire-breathing, and by sending Catherine wheels skittering across the floor.
* ShieldsAreUseless: Toy Knight carries a solid-looking shield, but it doesn't deflect any attacks
* ShockwaveStomp: Both are capable of doing this.
* ThoseTwoBadGuys
* UnskilledButStrong: Toy Knight mainly attacks this way. It's attacks are simple and a little predictable, but cannot be stopped and cover a good amount of area.

[[folder: The Night Watchman]]
!!The Night Watchman [[spoiler:(Reaver)]]
-->''Voiced by: Alec Newman''

-> ''"Who dares invade my domain?"''

A PlagueDoctor-esque...wizard/zombie/ghost-thing(?) that has stayed alive via a mysterious curse. He lights the lanterns of Dracula's castle, in an attempt to keep intruders away. Should somebody come in anyway, he attacks them with his lantern staff and calls rat and crow-like corpses called Scavens to devour them with a whistle.[[spoiler:After he is defeated by Simon, he is eaten by the Scavens he calls upon, and his body transforms into the Reaver, a huge putrid Scaven that is made up of countless corpses, and mindlessly eats any living thing it finds.]]
* MookMaker: [[spoiler:The Reaver, so much so that Scavens poke their heads out of its back to prevent Alucard from jumping over it.]]
* PlagueDoctor: It seems like he's actually wearing a sort of opera mask [[spoiler:considering its position and cracked eye holes when its on the Reaver]] But the outfit, along with his Vermin-like Scavens make it apparrent.
* VillainousGlutton: [[spoiler:One of the Reaver's attacks has it quickly digesting Alucard. And if Alucard throws his bats at it, it eats them and coughs up the bones as a counterattack.]]

[[folder:The Succubus]]
!!The Succubus
--> ''Voiced by: Eleanor Howell''

-> ''"Don't you like how I kiss, Simon?"''

A devious, alluring creature from the underworld seeking to curry favor with her new master. Encountered in ''Mirror of Fate'', she serves as the final boss of Simon's chapter in the game.
* DepravedBisexual: Just like Carmilla from the original continuity, she's ''very'' affectionate towards her slave girls, referring to them as ''my sweet" and...touches them in places. All the while trying to seduce Simon.
* HealThyself: Feeds on the slave girls she keeps in order to heal herself and boost her power in a pinch.
* MasterOfIllusion: Her main power. The arena you fight her in is actually an illusion created for the purpose of tempting Simon.
* MsFanservice: Like Carmilla, it's how she tempts men to their deaths. Simon [[NotDistractedByTheSexy doesn't buy it either]]. Must be InTheBlood.
* SexSlave: Has a harem of slave girls. [[DepravedBisexual She uses them for her own pleasure as well as trying to seduce Simon.]]
* WingedHumanoid

[[folder:Satan's Acolytes]]
!!Raisa Volkova
--> ''Voiced by Alex Childs''

Owner and director of a large pharmaceutical company, Bioquimek.
* BadBoss: The moment she senses the player, she smashes open a nearby canister of toxic chemicals to flood the room, regardless of the human workers still around.
* BadassLongcoat: In her human form. Technically, it's a lab coat, but she wears it well.
* BarehandedBladeBlock: She catches Dracula's Void Sword when he swings it at her the first time. Thankfully, [[CutscenePowerToTheMax it's not something she can pull off often during the actual fights with her.]]
* EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette: In her human form.
* FanDisservice: She's not exactly ugly in her human form, but her demonic form is outright ''hideous.''
* FlashStep: She can warp all over the place, using either this or TeleportSpam.
* GoodSmokingEvilSmoking: She's seen smoking a cigarette when the player confronts her, holding it loosely between two fingers.
* {{Goth}}: Her dark hair, pale skin, black lipstick, and eye shadow all invoke this in subtle fashion.
* HalfHumanHybrid: Like all the Acolytes, she's one of Satan's bastard offspring. [[spoiler:In fact, she's the ''first'' one.]]
* PeekABangs: She sports a one-sided version that covers half her face.
* OneWingedAngel: [[spoiler:Twice.]]
* SuperStrength: She's powerful enough to hurl ''Dracula'' around like it's nothing.
* VillainWithGoodPublicity: As stated above, she's the head of a pharmaceutical corporation. It's all a front for creating hellish mutants.
* WhipItGood: She combines this with ImprovisedWeapon by ripping out live electrical cables and lashing at the player. [[ShockAndAwe And electrocuting the ground.]]

!!Nergal Meslamstea
--> ''Voiced by Alastair Parker''

-> ''"I see now that I have underestimated you. Accept my apology. It won't happen again."''

* BaldOfEvil
* BondVillainStupidity: Rather than disable Dracula straight off, Nergal continuously electrocutes him in small bursts, leading to his defeat when he underestimates Dracula's cunning.
* ShockAndAwe: Emits lightning from his hands.
* WeatherManipulation: Creates a massive storm in his boss fight.
* YourHeadAsplode: [[spoiler:By way of a stomp on his head from Dracula.]]

!!Guido Szandor

* {{Expy}}: He looks suspiciously similar to Aleister Crowley, and his last name is the middle name of Anton La Vey, the founder of the Church of Satan.
* InTheHood
* InformedAttribute: Known to be the strongest of the Acolytes, he is killed [[spoiler:without attempting a single attack]].
* MagicalIncantation: Says one in order to [[spoiler:call [[{{Satan}} his father]] into the world]]. At least some of it is directly heard by {{Dracula}} and {{Alucard}}, and it is [[CardCarryingVillain not even trying to hide its meaning]].
-->'''Guido Szandor:''' In the name of Satan, Lord of the Earth, King of the World. I order the forces of darkness to pour its infernal power over me. Let the gates of Hell open wide, and from the great abyss greet me as your brother and friend! I order everything to be as I command!

[[folder: Bernhard Castle (Spoilers)]]
!!Bernhard Castle
[[caption-width-right:350:''"I am the Dark Shadow that chills the souls of man as you walk past..."'']]
--> ''Voiced by: [[spoiler:Robert Carlyle]]''

Castlevania has always been a [[VideoGame/CastlevaniaSymphonyOfTheNight creature of chaos]], but with Dracula's return in ''Lords of Shadow 2'', the castle has developed sentience and seeks to impede Dracula so that he will never leave again, even if it means killing him. For the most part, it accomplishes this by spawning corrupting blood that turns everything it touches against him, even if they were loyal just moments before. [[spoiler:The true form of it is referred to as "Inner Dracula," an EldritchAbomination with Dracula's face that represents the most brutal aspects of his vampiric nature, as well as the hatred towards humanity the real Dracula has started to cast off by the time you fight it.]]
* AntiMutiny: The castle still has UndyingLoyalty to Dracula, and wants him to keep it alive. Unfortunately, Dracula's main goal is [[DeathSeeker quite the opposite]] now, so it's understandably upset.
* ApologeticAttacker: It seems very distraught as it turns Dracula's loyal minions against him, screaming things like "Look what you're making us do!"
* BigBad: Of Dracula's forays into the past to obtain his powers and the Mirror of Fate.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: This is how it bolsters its numbers since the inhabitants of the castle still have UndyingLoyalty to Dracula.
* TheCorruption: The Blood.
* DemonicPossession: The Blood is capable of possessing anything in the castle, including it's inhabitants. This includes Dracula's Vampire warriors, [[spoiler: The three Gorgon Sisters and the Toymaker.]]
* EldritchAbomination: [[spoiler:Especially once its true form is revealed. See [[ here]] for a full take on it, including both the far less humanoid head form and the more humanoid one without a face.]]
* {{Expy}}: It's basically the ''Lords of Shadow'' continuity's answer to [[spoiler:Chaos]] from the main series. Like [[spoiler:Chaos]], it is the [[spoiler:the root of all of Dracula's demonic powers and an EldritchAbomination to boot.]]
* EnemyWithout: [[spoiler:It's all of Dracula's evil and vampiric identity. The face it ultimately shows is even his.]]
* GeniusLoci: As a sentient castle.
* IAmTheNoun: [[spoiler: It invokes this as a speech before you fight it.]]
-->''[[spoiler:"[[ThePowerOfBlood I am the blood that runs through your veins.]] [[TheDreaded I am the dark shadow that chills the hearts of men as you pass.]] I am the fury... [[ThePowerOfHate your hate]] and your vengeance. I am... your destiny."]]''
* ThePowerOfBlood: The only thing keeping it alive is Dracula's vampiric powers [[spoiler:since it ''is'' them]] and the blood of his many, ''many'' victims over the centuries.
* TurnedAgainstTheirMasters: An InvertedTrope. Dracula is turning against ''the castle'', as he wants to die and leave it behind. In contrast, the castle [[UndyingLoyalty has never gone against him]], and [[FateWorseThanDeath never ever wants to have him leave it]].
* VoiceOfTheLegion: Has the voices of all of Dracula's victims, though they aren't all at the same time. It's more of an amalgam of voices.
* {{Yandere}}: ''Holy crap''. The only thing Dracula wants from his castle by the 21st century is to get his powers back and ''leave'' to die. However, since [[LoadBearingBoss he's the only thing keeping it alive at all]], it refuses to let him go, no matter what.


--> ''Voiced by: Aleksandar Mikic''

Of the old gods, two of them stood higher among the rest for the role they played in the world; Pan and Agreus. While Pan was the personification of spring and brought new life into the world after each hard winter, Agreus was the other end of the scale; the personification of Fall that heralded the cold and dead winter. The two originally held the balance together, but after Pan's death Agreus ran rampant out of equal parts grief and the inability to keep himself in check.
* DarkIsNotEvil: Normally, Agreus was the death that complimented Pan's life, and the two kept the balance by making sure every spring led to a fall. Unfortunately, with Pan's death in the first game Agreus was free to run unchecked, making it DarkIsEvil.
* EvenEvilHasLovedOnes: He's the avatar of death and revels in his job, but he loved his brother Pan and seeks to kill Dracula for having a major part in his death.
* SkullForAHead: A ram's skull, he also has a familiar like Pan that's an owl that also has just a skull for a face.

[[folder:Roland de Ronceval]]
!!Roland de Ronceval
[[caption-width-right:294:''"Tonight will be your last, Prince of Darkness"'']]
--> ''Voiced by: Alastair Parker''

-> ''"God is with me, monster!"''

Roland de Ronceval was a Paladin of the Brotherhood of Light, and commander of the greatest army ever brought to destroy Dracula. He was in command of half a million men and countless machines in an attempt to siege Dracula's castle. He commanded the troops from the Siege Titan.
* AllInTheManual: You only know him as the Golden Paladin, his name is only mentioned in the city scrolls. A JustifiedTrope, since from the perspective of [[VillainProtagonist Dracula]], [[ButForMeItWasTuesday this is just business as usual, and he probably doesn't even care who it is he's fighting]].
* BadAss: It takes one to hold his own against the [[GodOfEvil The Prince of Darkness]]. Unfortunately for Roland, [[OvershadowedByAwesome Dracul severely outmatches him]]
* BlingOfWar: Wears an extremely ornate suit of gold armor.
* FakeUltimateHero: Through no fault of his own. Although Dracula soundly thrashes Roland and the rest of his army the former's disappearance after the end of the battle results in the Church assuming he was the one who finally defeated him. You can actually find a good number of statues commemorating Roland's 'victory' throughout the modern-day sections of the game.
* LightIsNotGood: Subverted, since the character you play as while fighting him is [[VillainProtagonist Dracula himself]].
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Destroys vital elements keeping Dracula from moving upward on the [[HumongousMecha Siege]] [[DungeonPunk Titan]] in his attempt to kill him.
* NotSoDifferent: Dracula mockingly says that he reminds him of his former self.
* OhCrap: The moment Dracula grabs the magical cross he tried to use against him, he reacts with panic and disbelief.
* PublicDomainCharacter: The name and characterisation of the golden paladin are most likely a reference to the hero of the french Chanson de Geste, [[Literature/TheSongOfRoland La Chanson de Roland]], who fought his last stand at the battle of Roncevaux/Roncesvalles in Spain. Both his and his legendary counterpart's death involved quite a light show as well, to put it mildly.
* ThePaladin: Duh.
