->''"As the vampire Kain, the only way in which you are capable of interacting with ''Blood Omen''[='s=] human cast by is killing them. This changes when you acquire the Disguise ability, which transforms Kain's sprite into that of [[InTheHood a hooded peasant]] and allows you to solicit voiced audio clips from neutral [=NPCs=]. This is only interesting for about ten minutes; you soon discover that the human race [[WelcomeToCorneria hasn't a single god damned thing worth saying]]. All Nosgoth's menfolk talk like oafish cockneys -- "good day to ya!" -- and the entire female population consists of drunken prostitutes. The vampire Vorador pointedly refers to Nosgoth's human population as 'the cattle;' the opening to ''Soul Reaver'' alludes to Kain's contempt for humanity. After chatting with ''Blood Omen''[='s=] townsfolk for any length of time, it is not difficult to see from where such sentiments might have arisen."''
