Lori: Horrible. It's all horrible.
Rachel: To be able to fly? To be smoke, or a wolf; to know the night, and live in it forever? That's not so bad. You call us monsters, but when you dream, it's of flying and changing, and living without death. You envy us. And what you envy...
Lori: ... we destroy.
Why? WHY? You have to ask?! Because I made an unbreakable vow...in the name of my family, in the name of Mother Gaia, and in the name of all Heaven, I will fulfill my duty as a Seraph to ERADICATE ALL DEMONS!...as well as traitors like you.
Why do you even want to kill vampires? Sure, they're snobby and insufferable... Uh... I mean, I'd imagine so, anyway...

It was a dark and spooky Halloween night
When I, Dracula, thought that I would invite
All of my freaky friends who were there in a flash
To a big dance party; a Monster Mash!
Wolfman, Frankenstein and Mummy were there
While Medusa fed some mice to the snakes in her hair
It was a groovy good time for a vampire bat
To fly out of his coffin and-
-wait, what was that?
Never fear, Simon Belmont is here
To destroy evil monsters and all you hold dear
I will end your cruel necromancing
Actually, we were just dancing...
To Hell, demon beasts, from whence you came
You're in Castlevania, this isn't a game
Now run away, free this land of its chains
As God as my witness, I shall see you all slain!

"The Doves are so childish, too. It's just a coffee shop....so what if some Ghouls are just brewing some coffee?"
"Do I so offend you, my lady? You wandered from one place to the next for hundreds of years, always in fear of the jealous warm. Like all un-dead, you were outcast on the face of the earth. Was this not injustice? Harried by inferiors, we were denied the succour of church and the protection of law. You and I, we have both lost girls that we have loved, to peasants with sharpened spikes and silver sickles. I am named Tepes, and yet it was not Dracula who pierced the heart of Carmilla Karnstein, nor that of Lucy Westenra. My dark kiss brings life, eternal and sweet; it is the silver knives that bring cold death, empty and endless."
—Prince Dracula, Anno Dracula
