A Battle of Devil Forgemasters
(Hector and Issac meet in a reddish colored room near the top of the Dracula's Castle)

Isaac: You resurrected the castle, Hector. Bravo. (claps)
Hector: You want me to regain my powers. Now I see why. I fell right into your plot... After 3 years of peace, I'd lost my edge.
Isaac: And I've sharpened mine. I've been waiting quite a long time to plot my revenge. Not only did my Lord die because of you -- you stripped me of my pride, my home. Now I shall make you suffer as I suffered. You shall die a most painful, gruesome death.

(Isaac takes out his Laser Blade and prepares for the battle)

Denying the Curse
(Isaac's Laser Blade flies through the air as Isaac is thrown to the ground. Isaac falls with screaming. Hector rushes toward Isaac in a fit of rage and anger, holding his Laser Blade)

Hector: Die, Isaac! DIE!
(Hector suddenly realizes what he is about to do as a reminder of what Julia said earlier phases through Hector's mind as he comes to his senses)
Julia: Do not let the curse take hold of you! I'm certain that she would not wish you to pay such a price for your revenge.
(Hector lowers the sword while speaking)
Hector: This murderous impulse... This thirst for bloody vengeance... This is not me... T'is the curse! Dracula's curse!
(Hector buries about his hands as Dracula's flaming red eyes are shown above him)
Zead: (claps) Oh-ho, and you would not fall prey to the curse. Praiseworthy, indeed. I wonder why. Was your desire for vengeance weak? Or was your spirit strong? No matter, either way, t'is well finished. Your efforts have been a great boon to me. The moment you wavered was all I needed.
(The coffin lifts Isaac and shuts, floats back under the floor as Hector raises his head to watch. Hector turns his head round)
Hector: Zead! So, you're the one behind all of this!
Zead: You could say that.
Hector: You used me to revive Lord Dracula!
Zead: Even so. Devil forgemasters alone are suffused in my master's magic. Thus, only a devil forgemaster can be the vessel for his reawakening. I knew you would be the best... material. (snorts) Yes, much more so than Isaac. That is why I guided you here. So that you may fully regain your powers.
Hector: Who are you?
Zead: However, for Lord Dracula to be reborn in you, the curse had to take hold of you. When you rejected the curse, you proved to be useless. Truly, t'is most unfortunate.
(Zead whips his hand downward as the familiar blade from earlier slides out from under his right sleeve)
Hector: (shocked) That weapon... You are none other than... Death!
(Zead is shown swinging a scythe as Hector realizes his true form through the priest disguise)
Zead (Death): Soon, my master will enter Isaac's body. Though you were favored, Isaac will do. Dracula will once more walk the night! And as of you, it is time for you to die!

(Black vapours rise from round Zead as he stands with his scythe while preparing to shed his false disguise)

The Dark Lord Revived
(The same coffin which Isaac was closed in suddenly busts open as a mist is released)

Dracula: (breath of relief) Ah, the traitor, Hector...
Hector: Lord Dracula... You are reborn.
Dracula: Why did you betray me?
Hector: Why did you unleash your hatred upon the humans? When you began slaughtering them indiscriminately, I had no choice but to disobey you.
Dracula: You side against me... for the sake of humans? (angrily) Humans are not worth the air they breathe. I was simply cleansing the world.
Hector: It is not your place to judge the worth of humans.
Dracula: The powerful always judge the weak. The humans made their judgment of me, as well. Thus I sentenced them... to extinction. Sympathy is merely a form of weakness. You betrayed me, Hector... And for that, the punishment is death. (sinister grin)
Hector: I stand ready! I will not flee as I did before.

(Hector enters the battle stance)

One Final Forging
(Dracula staggers backward in disbelief)

Dracula: The transformation... was it... not complete?
Hector: So it would seem.
(Dracula's body starts to glow a purplish colour)
Dracula: The curse. My soul may return to the abyss, but the curse will not be lifted! It will fester in the hearts of humans until they obliterate themselves...
Hector: Have you forgotten? I am a devil forgemaster. I can turn your curse aside... Transform it into something harmless... And so it shall be. Rest in peace.
(Dracula can no longer hold his power over Isaac's body as his essence fades)
Dracula: Groaaaaaah!!
(The essence continues to fade into the air revealing Isaac whose exhausted body hits the floor)
Hector: Now that I reflect upon it, Isaac's madness and Rosaly's death were both caused by the curse. This, then, is the final forge.
(Hector enchants the spell)
Hector: Heed my words, O great powers of darkness! Release to me one of the tortured souls! Let me infuse him with my life-force and awaken him to the world of the living! Immaculate being... Appear before me now.
(Hector focuses the power in both of his hands into a sphere in front of him. His power slowly starts to collect the remnants of Dracula's essence that form the curse)
Hector: It is too monstrous!
(The essence continues to pour into the sphere near Hector then it explodes into a burst of light as Hector crouches in exhaustion. Hector falls to his knees)
Hector: T'is done!
(The throne room starts to crumble round Hector)
Hector: The struggle has ended. I feel I can let go now, and die in peace.
Julia: You look ghastly.
Hector: Julia. Why did you come here?
Julia: I thought you might be contemplating something foolish. Like... "Letting go."
Hector: You see through it all, don't you?
Julia: You've paid your debt, have you not? From this day on, you must live true to your own heart.
Hector: You are wise indeed, Julia... I cannot fall knowing that you would fall with me.
Julia: Now that you realize, we must go. Let us depart. Quickly!
(Julia hits the bottom of her cane against the ground as a portal quickly forms below both her and Hector Julia turns to look toward Isaac's body)
Julia: (sadly) Farewell... Isaac...

(Hector and Julia both teleport away as a column falls where they once were and the whole throne room starts to crumble)
