"Returning to life time and again since the ancient Middle Ages, the evil lord Dracula has driven people to terror. Each time Dracula returned from the dead, the Belmont Clan fought him in the shadows, wielding the holy whip. Through their efforts, humanity avoided the Darkness, securing prosperity."
— Excerpt from the opening of Order of Ecclesia
"Give him this message: You have become a cursed being and I will never forgive you. This whip and my kinsmen will destroy you someday. From this day on, the Belmont clan will hunt the night!"
"What is a man? A miserable little pile of secrets! But enough talk... Have at you!"
— Dracula, Symphony of the Night
