Baljhet Mountains Map

Baljhet Mountains (Balget Mountains in Japanese version) is a mountainous region in Castlevania: Curse of Darkness that connect the Abandoned Castle to the Mortvia Aqueduct and Garibaldi Temple. It is also the location of Julia's Shop.

GeographyEdit

Note: The location names in this section are descriptive only.

CoastEdit

You start from the Gondola chair that you had taken from the Abandoned Castle. Ahead is a foggy coast that heads west and to the south you can see the remains of towers that collapsed after the previous encounter with Dracula. Right away is a room that will give you the Magmard innocent devil, the basic form of the Battle-Type innocent devil (Trevor instead finds an MP Max Up here). This section is populated with Fenrirs and Lizard Men.

Eastern MountainsEdit

The area before coming up to Julia's shop is somewhat of a maze. There is a big "circle" in the middle of the path to the shop. Always taking a right (the northern path) is the most direct route. Always taking a left (the southern path)will also get you there, but will be a more complicated. The southern path has another loop that comes out of it connects to it. Near the end is an area that has three exits on the right. The first is the exit point for the inner loop. The second leads to a dead end area that is guarded by a Cyclops (a Serum can be found if you look hard enough) and leads to a building that houses the Perfect Guard skill, which will gain you hearts if you block at the moment of impact (Trevor instead finds an ATK Up here). The third brings you towards Julia's shop, but takes you to the end of the outer loop if head right.

In addition to Lizard Men, Orcs hunt this area. Lizard men commonly drop Jet Black, while Orc commonly drop Aluminum (which you only had one of in the Abandoned Castle. Up until this point, it is likely you have a Short Sword, Gano, and Leather Helmet. You may have used the an Aluminum in your possession to create a Foil, Punch Rings, or Corinthian Helmet, but now it is easier to create these items. The Jet Black and Aluminum can be combined to form the first available Spear type weapon, the Dung. Jet Black can also combine with Wild Memory to form a weak type of spear, the Bamboo Lance, upgrade a Short Sword to a Broad Sword, or upgrade Soft Leather Armor to Hard Leather Armor.

Backtracking: Once you have the Glide ability from a Bird-Type Innocent Devil, you can reach a treasure chest in the dead end path that contains an XS Potion.

Around Julia's ShopEdit

Upon passing some stone arches, you will meet up with Julia Laforeze. She will decide to aid you. To the left is the entryway to the Mortvia Aqueduct, however, it is not possible to enter at this time. Ahead is the first Warp Chair, which does not go anywhere yet. To the right is a secluded area with a Save Point and Julia's House, where you can obtain a Magical Ticket, which will warp you to her shop. Julia will sell you items at her shop, but nothing that wasn't available before at this point in the game, except for the Death Doll, which can prevent you from dying by taking your place, but which you probably can't afford yet. You can also sit in the Rocking Chair there and obtain the Baljhet Mountains Map there. It is not likely that use can use Julia's Innocent Devil services yet, though you will be able to as soon as one of your innocent devils drops a Devil Shard.

Heading out to continue the trek, you will find the Steal skill. This will allow you to steal items from enemies when the timing is right. You cannot obtain any items you couldn't obtain some other way during this stage though. The next area will give you a chance to try out steeling. You will go up against Armor Knights and Wizards, from which you can steel Magical Ticket and Memorial Ticket.

Backtracking: Once your Battle-Type Innocent Devil has Brute Force ability (in the Garibaldi Temple), you can enter the Mortvia Aqueduct.

Fort SectionEdit

Next, you will come across a fort that guards a bridge across steep cliffs. A large cannon will blast away at you. Destroying the skeleton in its chair, you can sit in the Gunnery Seat and use it to blast against the fort's defenders (in the first person). First, destroy the fort's canons, break the wall blocking passage across the bridge to the fort, then destroy the hordes of Axe Knights that rush out to protect it. Then enter the fort itself, where you will have to fight many more Axe Knights and Orcs. The next area outside the fort contains a save point.

The area ahead has Skeleton Blazes, from which you can steel useful potions from. It also has Cyclopses. There is an alternate path on the right which leads to a "dead" end with Red Skeletons that cannot be killed, and thus the gate will never open for now, so turn back for now.

Backtracking: The gate guarded by the Red Skeletons will be lifted after you destroy them using the Purify ability which is gained by a Nautilus Rod innocent devil. Trevor can destroy these skeletons and reach the same area once he has the Holy Whip and will be able to find a DEF Up.

Waterfall SectionEdit

Next is a waterfall section, where you will first encounter Spirits and a treasure chest containing the I.D. Chart, which will give you an idea of how to evolve you innocent devil. The areas beyond that have Cockatrices in it. The path expands into a loop. On the left is an alternate path "off the map" that will lead to an area guarded by Wizards and Cockatrices with a Boiling Ring hidden on a perch (Trevor instead finds the Flame Whip). At the end of the loop are Efreets and before the entrance to the jagged mountain section. These have an item that you can steel that you want, the Sun Tears. They can only be stolen from after they grab a hold of you and you are able to shake them off though. Efreets in this stage do not come back once you kill them, so you have a limited opportunities to steel from them. When they try to grab you, they will eventually explode, so you have only that one opportunity to steel from them. It is best to try to steal one from each of them. They can be used right away to upgrade your Soft Leather Armor to Hide Armor and your Corinthian Helmet to a Thracian Helmet. A third can be saved for later on to create a Stone Mask.

Backtracking 1: Once the water has been drained (the castle has been resurrected), a hidden cave behind the waterfall will be accessible. Thiefs and Spirits roam these caves. A High Potion, XS Potion, Dark Crystal, Dragon Scale, and Pachinko Chair will be available there. Trevor will be able to find a DEF Up here.

Backtracking 2: A potion near the Boiling Ring can be later accessible with a Glide ability of a Bird-Type ID.

Jagged MountainsEdit

The area starts to become populated with jagged rocks and a Save Point is ahead. Another Ifreet must be defeated before moving forwards. At the end is the Wyvern boss, who sits in the middle of valley surrounded on all sides by jagged rocks and mountains. Defeating it leads to the Garibaldi Temple.

First Meeting with Julia
(Hector runs down a pathway in the mountains then suddenly stops when he sees a woman kneeling down)

Hector: It can't be... That's impossible... She can't be alive...
(The woman looks up and notices Hector)
Woman: Oh. May I be of service?
Hector: Uh, no... Forgive me. My name is Hector. What are you doing in a place like this?
Woman: I could ask you the same question, sir.
Hector: I am searching for someone. A man bearing the same crest I'm wearing.
Woman: ... And this man... Is he your enemy? Or your friend?
Hector: You sound as if you know him.
Woman: Yes, quite so. Now answer me. Be he your enemy or foe?
Hector: He is my most bitter enemy.
Woman: I see... In that case... I shall help you.
(Hector and the woman start to circle each other)
Hector: Pardon me, m'lady, but by what reason would you offer me this boon? Indeed, by what reason should I trust it?
Woman: Your enemy is my enemy... That is reason enough. If you are a devil forgemaster, you shall need a place to keep your "little friends" safe. Rest assured, you have no reason to refuse my help.
Hector: You seem quite knowledgeable. Who are you exactly?
Woman: A witch. I escaped from the western lands, where we were hunted like vermin. I have the power to envision the future.
Hector: How interesting... And your name?
Woman: Julia. My house is further on. I shall prepare an elixir that may be of use to you. Farewell... for now.
(Julia walks to the back doorway)

Hector: Julia... She is the very image of Rosaly.

Ending
(Dracula's castle crumbles and breaks apart, as his remaining essence flows out of it in purplish light. A ray of sun shines through the black clouds. Julia staring at the remains of the castle with Hector)

Julia: T'is over at last.
Hector: Even so. I pray this will truly free the people's hearts...
Julia: Those hearts are yet filled with darkness. The cursed has reached deep inside of them. Its mark will not easily vanish. For my brother, only death could erase it. (saddened)
Hector: Julia...
Julia: (hopeful) All the same, people are not such fools. Their hope lies in one another. They shall realize that in time. Scars will fade and be lost to memory... Let us have faith in the morrow.
Hector: Indeed.
(Hector stands with Julia and look off toward the remains of Dracula's castle once again)

(Meanwhile, at Eneomaos Machine Tower)
Saint Germain: Faith in the morrow? Those are fine words... But not for me. As one who travels through time, I see the morrow a bit differently. All the same, the flow of time has stabilized at last. For myself, I think I will go far into the future and see what awaits. There is one great battle yet to be fought -- the final battle between Lord Dracula and the humans. Perhaps they will remember your fight. Or perhaps it will start anew.
(Saint Germain tips his hat to the screen and turns to walk through a portal)

(Julia and Hector walk down a path in the Baljhet Mountains)
Julia: What now, Hector? Where will you go?
Hector: Well... I have many friends I must conceal from the humans. I suppose I'll seek some hidden place where I can live in peace.
Julia: No need to search out such a place... I know of one.
Hector: (enthused) Pray, lead me there. I am in your debt.
Julia: All that you may need you shall find here. If that is fine with you.
(Julia walks toward her shop. Hector looks on behind Julia)
Hector: Well, I suppose... To stay here with you, Julia... T'is not a bad idea.

(Hector walks toward Julia's shop)
