Alucard (Trevor Belmont)

Voiced by: Richard Madden
"Trevor died a long time ago, Father... I am Alucard."

"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.

Note: For tropes applying to Alucard before The Reveal, see the Trevor Belmont section.

    open/close all folders 

  • The Ageless: Just any other vampire.
  • The Anti-Nihilist: His motivation in 2. He understands Dracula's predicament, but does not want to accept his morbid and hopeless view of the world. Instead, he opts for a massive Batman Gambit in order to lure out the prime evils of the world and destroy them, therefore, creating a resolution for his father and himself.
  • Alucard: Named this by Dracula in reference to his origins.
  • Animal Motifs: Wolves.
  • Antagonistic Offspring: Opposes his evil father and has played a key part in defeating him in Mirror of Fate. He warms up to him in 2.
  • Appropriated Appelation: Dracula had named him "Alucard" for lack of his real name and in reference to Trevor's dying words. As evidenced by Lords of Shadow 2, Alucard himself seems to like it.
  • The Atoner: Goes on to right all of his wrongs in Mirror of Fate and saves his son from a grim fate.
  • Barbarian Long Hair: Considering the reboot, this makes him manlier.
  • The Beastmaster: Has an affinity with bats which form his first secondary weapon in Mirror of Fate.
  • Big "NO!": Lets out one after he wakes up in Mirror of Fate.
  • Black Knight: In 2, he's first introduced as a demonic bodyguard clad in a black armor.
  • Blue Is Heroic: Favors an embroidered teal longcoat, and is quite a heroic soul.
  • Character Development: Undergoes a solid one in 2. Not only does he let go of his past grudges and chooses to forge his own destiny, but he was also successful in persuading his father to do the same. And in the conclusion of 2, he finally – sincerely – forgives him.
  • The Chessmaster: Masterminds the entire plot of Lords of Shadow 2 in order to ensure the defeat of Zobek, Satan, Dracula and himself, and, barring his Demonic Possession by Satan, is completely successful in all aspects, save the last. The only reason the last portion of the plan is not carried out is because Dracula and Alucard decide to live as a family.
  • Composite Character: Of Alucard and Trevor Belmont from the original continuity.
  • Conveniently Timed Attack from Behind: Saves his father from an enraged demon early in 2 by cleaving the fiend into two from behind.
  • Cool Sword: The Crissaegrim, the ornate sword Alucard forged around the stake Gabriel used to kill Carmilla. He can also light it on fire and coat it in ice because of two other rapiers he'd incorporated into it, giving abilities akin to his father's Chaos Claws and Void Sword, respectively.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Despite dressing all in a dark color palette, he's a hero who battles his fellow monsters of the night.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Has his moments in 2.
    Alucard: (to Zobek's Lieutenant) Nice armor...
  • Demonic Possession: Is possessed by Satan during Lords of Shadow 2's final boss fight.
  • Deuteragonist: Despite not appearing until Mirror of Fate, Alucard is the second most important character in the Lords of Shadow series.
  • Dual Wielding: Downplayed. He decapitates the Head Jailer in Revelations by dual-wielding his Crissaegrim and the retrieved Void Sword. Later on, he returns to just his Crissaegrim.
  • Emergency Transformation: A double subversion. Originally, Dracula sought to use his blood to revive and save Trevor, but it didn't work. He lay inert for almost thirty years during which the blood was slowly transforming him into a vampire.
  • Evil Counterpart: Inverted. He's the Good Counterpart to his father.
  • Friendly Neighborhood Vampire: Uses his curse to watch over new generations of men, as well as helping stranded innocents in his White Wolf guise.
  • Full-Body Disguise: In Lords of Shadow 2 assumes the guise of Zobek's Lieutenant as a part of his Memory Gambit with his father.
  • Good Is Not Soft: He is considerably more moral and friendlier than his father, who at his very best is a Good Is Not Nice Jerk with a Heart of Gold. That said, he is just as brutal and violent towards his enemies, and won't hesitate to kill and drink the blood of any human that attacks him.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: Has cracks on his face in Lords of Shadow 2.
  • Hair-Contrast Duo: Stark-white to his father's ashen brown in the finale of 2.
  • Half-Breed Angst: Alucard sees his vampiric half (being Count Dracula's son) as a curse.
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: 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.
  • Hero of Another Story: Since Alucard was The Chessmaster during Lords of Shadow 2, it's clear he was doing things before and during the main game. The game's DLC expansion, Revelations, is a bonus campaign that stars Alucard and goes into greater detail about his role.
  • Hope Bringer: Is this to the people of the modern city and, eventually, his father. His White Wolf guise is thanked for leading the innocent travelers out of danger on more than one occasion. In itself, Alucard is considered to be the town's mythical savior who helps the poor when they are in need.
  • Hunter of His Own Kind: He's a vampire who hunts vampires.
  • Identity Amnesia: In Mirror of Fate, he requires the Lost Soul's aid in order to remember who he was or what had happened to him prior his death.
  • I Hate You, Vampire Dad: Wants to kill his vampire father, Dracula, both for turning him into a vampire and for generally being evil. He eventually gets over this by the second game, seeking to help Dracula redeem himself by killing Zobek, 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.
  • I Have Many Names: He's known to mankind as the White Wolf, the White Vampire, and the Child-Wolf of Dracula.
  • Kiss of the Vampire: According to city lore, he had mastered a way to take enough blood from victims to satiate himself without killing them. Said lore also states that his victims were head over heels in love with him.
  • Licking the Blade: Does this in the DLC for Lords of Shadows 2 after certain executions. Since he's licking off blood, doing so heals him slightly.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy: Has the appearance of an attractive man in his thirties, despite his creepy-looking gray skin and Supernatural Gold Eyes.

  • Master Swordsman: His skill with the Crissaegrim is unparalleled. After all, he's had a lot of time to practice.
  • Messy Hair: Has long, shaggy white hair.
  • My Greatest Failure: He failed to kill Dracula in the past, something that had severe repercussions for the Belmont clan and humanity in general. He has since made it his unlife's mission to end the Clan's curse, no matter how long it takes.
  • My Greatest Second Chance: He becomes this to his father in the final game.
  • My Species Doth Protest Too Much: Doesn't embrace the Blood Knight and Always Chaotic Evil traits of his vampire brethren.
  • Mystical White Hair: His hair turned white at some point during his transition into a vampire.
  • No Shirt, Long Jacket: Just like dear old dad.
  • Papa Wolf: No pun intended; he loves Simon so much he's willing to ignore his own instinct of self-preservation for his sake.
  • Power Copying: 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. However, he loses these powers by Revelations, though this is justified by the ever-changing nature of a vampire.
  • Pro-Human Transhuman: In spite of his undead condition, Alucard is on neighborly terms with the rest of humankind. It is also heavily implied that he had befriended Victor and other Belmonts prior the game's events.
  • Really 700 Years Old: By 2, he's been alive for one thousand and ten years.
  • Rise from Your Grave: How he first wakes up from his slumber in Mirror of Fate.
  • Rip Van Winkle: Trevor's transformation into a vampire lasted for nearly three decades letting his son grow up without him.
  • Stronger with Age: Alucard's existing table of abilities and skills morphs and changes as time passes.
  • Suicidal Pacifism: Downplayed. Alucard refuses to harm Simon – and only Simon – when the latter's possessed by Dracula. Even if that means subjecting himself to Simon's attacks and subweapons.
  • Super Strength: Not quite so much as his father's, but still considerable.
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes: His eyes are a golden yellow with blackened sclera, contrasting his father's crimson, and also suiting to his wolf motif.
  • That Man Is Dead: Not to the same extent as his dad, seeing as he reacts favorably to Marie calling him by his birth name.
    Alucard: Trevor died a long time ago, Father. I am Alucard.
  • Thicker Than Water: What ultimately extinguishes his ire towards his father.
  • Vampire Bites Suck: When it comes to his enemies, he can be quite brutal. See below.
  • Vampiric Draining: His Finishing Move against most enemies in Mirror of Fate involves pouncing on their stunned form and ripping into their throats, draining them dry.
  • Vegetarian Vampire: Not a full vegetarian, mind you. He's not fickle and does drink human blood, but, according to the modern city lore, he's mastered a way to feed without taking the life of his victim. By Lords of Shadow standards, that's pretty vegetarian.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: Just like his father.
    • Animorphism: Alucard's true form is that of a great, white wolf. In Mirror of Fate, that wolf is bipedal and increases the damage he outputs at the cost of his magic. In Lords of Shadow 2, it appears as a regular wolf and acts as a guide between the castle and the modern world. In Revelations, it is intangible and can be used to avoid attacks and pass through grates.
    • One to Million to One: In Revelations, he can turn into a cloud of bats for platforming segments of the game.
    • Super Smoke: In Mirror of Fate, he can become a mass of floating particles which absorb the health of anyone Alucard passes through.
  • Weakened by the Light: Unlike his more fortunate father, Alucard is severely handicapped in the sunlight in that it immediately sets him ablaze.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: Subverted. He's white-haired, and one of the more morally-upright heroes.
  • Whip It Good: Uses a corrupt version of the Combat Cross, called the Dark Pain, in Mirror of Fate. Later, he abandons the whip in favor of the Crissaegrim.
