Celia Fortner is the main antagonist in Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow and is the figurehead of With Light, a religious cult similar to that of Graham Jones' own. She leads her cult through the vast belief of the balance between Good and Evil; for Good to truly exist, there must also be Evil, as neither can truly exist without each other. Since the true figure of Evil in the Castlevania series is the vampire Lord of Darkness Dracula, she believes that this dark lord must exist for Good to be true. Since Dracula was defeated for good in 1999 by Julius Belmont, and Soma Cruz, who is the reincarnation of Dracula, rejected his predestined fate and did not take the Dark Lord's place, Celia is convinced that the balance is completely off and arranges for Soma's doom in 2036.

Official backgroundEdit

"Celia is a shadow priestess that exercises great magical power and is the founder of a mysterious cult that will stop at nothing to orchestrate the second coming of the Evil Lord. With the disappearance of Dracula, she senses that the magical world has weakened, and in turns fears the loss of her own power. As a result, she plans to plunge Soma's mind into darkness in an attempt to seize the power of the Evil Lord."


Celia arranges for the construction of a massive castle, planning to make it into a replica of Dracula's Castle by populating it with summoned demons and opening a portal to the Demon Realm. Then she proceeds to lure Soma into it, intending to see him die. She also gathers two men, Dmitrii Blinov and Dario Bossi, who were born at the moment Dracula was destroyed in 1999 and therefore possess magical powers, making them the Dark Lord's candidates hoping to take Soma's place. When Soma confronts both candidates and emerges the victor in their duels, Celia realizes that Soma is perhaps the best candidate, so she summons a doppelganger in Mina Hakuba's appearance and destroys it in front of Soma's horrified eyes, causing him to become nearly engulfed with rage and succumb to the Dark Lord's influence, nearly accomplishing Celia's aim. But Soma is saved by the interference of Arikado and Celia is left with no option than to escape and rethink her plan again.

Blinov reappears, having not actually perished at Soma's hands but instead having copied Soma's Power of Dominance, and Celia realizes that once again she has an ideal candidate to become the new Dark Lord, so she disregards Soma's importance and leaves with Dmitrii to see about gaining more power. Celia is soon killed and sacrificed by Dmitrii for his own gain, ending her life. Her dead body is seen hanging from the ceiling in the Abyss before Dmitri destroys it.
