A Mysterious Companion
(Inside Dracula's Castle, in a room near the Entrance)

Jonathan: !! Something's here?!
(A ghost shows up)
Charlotte: It's not human.
Jonathan: A monster?!
Charlotte: No, wait! I sense no evil from him.
???: Ah... You can sense me.
Jonathan: Who are you?
???: A ghost, as you can see. Ghosts have no need for names.
Charlotte: Impossible! Somehow, he retained his consciousness after dying. It must be the castle's magic!
Jonathan: I don't know about you, but he sure seems shady to me.
???: Think what you will. It's your choice. However, can you truly destroy me with a whip you can't even use?
Jonathan: Only one way to find out!
(Jonathan rushes toward the ghost)
Charlotte: Wait, Hold on!
(Charlotte calms Jonathan down)
Charlotte: How do you know he can't use the Vampire Killer?
Jonathan: Huh?
Charlotte: I find it very odd to find a ghost not controlled by Dracula's Castle.
???: (smiles) A smart girl, compared to this foolish boy. Just before I died, I cast a magic barrier on myself, binding my soul to this place. I'm free from the castle's control, but I'm trapped here.
Charlotte: But a paranormal entity like you can easily be affected by magic! Casting a barrier that repels the castle's power is impossible, even for me! Just who are you?!
???: My name is meaningless, but I suppose you need to call me something.
(A gust of wind blows inside the room)
Wind: (smiles) Very well. Call me "Wind."
Charlotte: ... Mr. Wind.
Wind: Just Wind is fine.
Charlotte: All right, Wind. What are you doing here?
Jonathan: Didn't you hear him? He's trapped here, remember?
Charlotte: I understand that. But if he truly has this much power, he could use other methods besides just binding his spirit here.
Wind: (laughs) My, my, my... You really are a bright little girl, aren't you?
Charlotte: (annoyed) Stop treating me like a child. My name is Charlotte.
Wind: Ah, I understand. And who is this boy?
Jonathan: (angrily) Who you calling a "boy"?! It's Jonathan. Jonathan Morris.
Wind: Hm. The reason I'm here, simply put, is regret. I will not rest until the lord of this castle is vanquished. I thought I would lend assistance to those who wish to defeat him.
Jonathan: But, if you can't move from here, what do you intend to do?
Wind: In spirit form, I am able to grant items and techniques I once possessed in life. I think they'll be of great help to you.
Charlotte: In that case, please help us.
Jonathan: (smiles) No, I've been able to do fine without any of his help so far. So why don't you just--
Charlotte: Right, "so far." But this is Dracula's Castle. Even if you could use that whip, it won't help you when you die. Don't you remember your father?
Jonathan: Enough about my father! Just leave this to me, okay? My father's dead. Forget him.
Charlotte: ...Sorry. But still--
Jonathan: No, wait, I'm sorry... Guess I got a little overdramatic there. You might be right, Charlotte. Wind, perhaps we could use your help. Would you help us?
Wind: ... If you can complete the tasks I give, only then will I help you.
(Jonathan and Charlotte accepts Wind's proposal)

Jonathan: Deal. Let's go, Charlotte.

First Quest Completed
Wind: Now you should be able to advance deeper into the castle. If you complete the tasks I give to you, I shall teach you even more, including magic skills. I may be able to entrust you with other items in the future as well.

Jonathan: Sounds good to me.
Wind: Oh, one more thing... Regarding this castle’s lord.
Charlotte: You mean Dracula, right? I've read books about him.
Wind: Dracula isn't this castle's lord.
Jonathan: What do you mean? That's why they call this "Dracula's Castle."
Wind: It is indeed Dracula's Castle. However, the castle's lord is a vampire by the name of Brauner.
Charlotte: I've heard nothing about that!
Wind: As one would expect. His identity has been kept secret for years, after all. He infuses magic into paintings to increase his power. You will undoubtedly come across these paintings in this castle. Search for these paintings.
Charlotte: He's using the paintings to make the castle's power his, isn't he? Still, he isn't Dracula, after all, so we're safe for now.
Wind: Be careful. His power grows stronger by the minute.
Jonathan: No problem. We won't let you be tied down here for long. That's a promise.
Charlotte: Trust us. Jonathan might seem unreliable, but he'd never break a promise.
Wind: (smiles) Heh, that's reassuring. Very well. Best of luck to you.

Jonathan: All right then. Let's go find those paintings!

Unveiling the Mystery of Wind
Jonathan: Wind! What's the meaning of this?!

Charlotte: Look at this photo.
(The photo in the locket is shown)
Wind: !!
Charlotte: You owe us an explanation.
Wind: ... Ah, indeed, I do. Let me tell you my real name. It's Eric. Eric Lecarde.
Jonathan: You don't mean... The man who fought by my father?
Eric: Yes. John was my best friend.
Charlotte: Then what's your relationship with the two girls in the photo?
Eric: They're my daughters.
Jonathan: H-Hold on a sec! Aren't they Brauner’s daughters?!
Eric: Brauner lost his real daughters in World War One. His anger and grief awakened his hidden power, which he used to become a vampire.
Charlotte: So his daughters...
Eric: He believes the daughters he lost in the war were reborn as my daughters.
Jonathan: So he kind of just stole them from you?
Eric: His daughters were his life. Now that he has them back, he wants to punish the humans whose war has ruined his life.
Jonathan: I see. That's why the whip started acting up in front of those two. It's because they carry the blood of the Lecarde family!
Charlotte: Of course! The Vampire Killer! Eric, if you fought by Jonathan's father, then you must know how to unlock the Vampire Killer's power!
Eric: Yes, I do know. But...
Jonathan: If you know, then tell me! What should I do?!
Eric: ... In order for the Morris family to use the Vampire Killer, you need the power of the Lecarde Family. But I can't help you, and of course, now that my daughters have been turned to vampires...
Jonathan: (disappointed) So, in the end... This whip is useless. I guess my being its heir is just the emptiest, most meaningless title of all.
Eric: ... I was forbidden to tell you this, but I think the time has come. The reason your father died...
Jonathan: I know why he died. They say he was mortally wounded when he stopped Dracula's resurrection.
Charlotte: Even I know that was the cause.
Eric: You're wrong.
Jonathan: ?!
Eric: For one who is not of the Belmont family, to use the true power of the Vampire Killer, they must give up a part of their own life. That's why my family acts as the power's key. So that it can only be used when truly necessary. John used the whip too much...
Jonathan: So what are you saying? You mean my father died because of this whip?
Eric: Exactly. Which is why he didn't want to teach you how to use it. He wanted you to develop the strength to survive without using the whip. No matter how much you hate him for doing that, in the end, he was only looking out for you.
Jonathan: ...
Eric: You may not yet wield your whip like a Belmont, but that power can be yours. I know that John had his reasons.
Jonathan: Father...
Charlotte: (gladly) I know there was a reason. Aren't you glad, Jonathan?
Jonathan: I just don't get it... Why did the Belmonts give this thing to the Morris family?! If not for this, we would have been spared so much pain!
Eric: Because the Belmonts cannot touch the whip now. It is predicted that Dracula will be revived in year 1999. I've heard that the Belmonts must not touch the Vampire Killer until then.
Jonathan: But...!
Eric: Others have appeared to revive Dracula in the meantime. Somebody has to stand up and stop them. And only the Morris family is able to do that!
Jonathan: ... Oh, well then. At least I finally know the truth about my father and the whip. Still, are you okay with this? This job that we have to do is gonna end up hurting your own daughters.
Charlotte: I wonder if there's a chance we can save those two if I use some kind of purification spell...
Eric: The chances are very slim. You should know that. Even I never knew how to do it. I appreciate your sentiments, but I am resigned to their fate.
Charlotte: I see...
Eric: Forgive us, Jonathan. For placing this burden upon you.
Jonathan: (smiles) No problem. I'll just do what I can. And if you've accepted it, so do I. Let's go, Charlotte.

Charlotte: Right.

Bad Ending
Jonathan: Damn it! In the end, that monster Brauner escaped.

Charlotte: Still, we stopped Dracula's revival, so that's good enough, don't you think?
Jonathan: You're concerned how I feel? Well, I guess you are right.
Charlotte: After all, I do feel a little responsible for you, so... Oh! By the way! Where's Vincent? You think he escaped the castle?
Jonathan: Oops. I knew we forgot something!
(Eric shows up)
Eric: Have no fear. He's just fine.
Charlotte: Eric! Is that true? Thank goodness!
Jonathan: I'm sorry I wasn't able to keep my promise to you...
Eric: It's all right. Now that Dracula's Castle is gone, I'll soon vanish. I have one last request, though. My daughters...
(Eric slowly vanishes)
Jonathan: Eric!
(Eric disappears)
Jonathan: ... He disappeared.
Charlotte: I wonder what he was trying to ask us at the end.
Jonathan: Beats me. But look, we have to track down Brauner now.
Charlotte: You're right. Along with those other two.
Jonathan: All right, let's go, Charlotte.

Charlotte: Right.

Delving the Past
Jonathan: Say, Eric, there's something I wanna ask you.

Eric: Sure. What is it?
Jonathan: Did my father know the Vampire Killer would consume his life when he used it?
Eric: No. We only learned the truth after Dracula was defeated. We found out using magic after noticing John took so long to recover.
Jonathan: I see...
Charlotte: Jonathan? Why did you ask that?
Jonathan: Grandfather was already dead by the time I was born. I was wandering if grandfather gave him the whip knowing the truth about it.
Charlotte: Hm. I wonder...
Eric: Have no worries. Your grandfather was exceptionally strong, but kind.
Charlotte: That's good to hear, right, Jonathan?

Jonathan: (smiles) I suppose...

A Chance for Purification
Eric: ?! You learned a purification spell?

Charlotte: Yes. Now I can break the vampire's curse.
Eric: Indeed, you can. But if they become full vampires, it will be too late.
Jonathan: We won't know if it's too late until we try.
Eric: Yes, that's true. Still... Even if you break the curse, please do not tell them about me.
Charlotte: Why not? I'm sure that they'd both want to see you.
Eric: My daughters think that I'm dead. The truth is, my body is gone. Besides, Brauner comes first!
Jonathan: But, still!
Eric: It's all right. It's the fate of my family. My daughters have a task they must perform. If I can see them one last time before I pass away, that's good enough for me.
Jonathan: Okay. I gotcha.
Charlotte: Let's get going. But let's hurry. We have three people to meet.

Jonathan: You're right.

Father's Relief
Jonathan: (smiles) Eric! We lifted the curse from your daughters!

Charlotte: Thanks to my magical genius.
Eric: You were in time?! I don't believe it. It's a miracle!
Jonathan: They said they won't ask about you until this is all over.
Eric: That's good. If they knew what I've become, it would only upset them. Now you can unlock the true power of the Vampire Killer.
Charlotte: That's what they said.
Jonathan: (smiles) I'll give it a try if I feel like it.

Eric: (smiles) Well, then. Now that you know how John felt, perhaps that will be enough.

Truth of the Vampire Killer
Eric: I know. I will tell you what you know.

Jonathan: Yes, please.
Eric: That whip is bound to the Belmont bloodline. As such, the Morris family cannot use its power directly.
Charlotte: And that's why the Lecarde family exists, right?
Eric: Exactly. The Lecardes have the power to incarnate the memory of the Belmonts engraved in the whip.
Charlotte: Ah... I see. Overcoming that makes the whip recognize the user.
Eric: Yes, precisely.
Jonathan: Hey, wait... I don't quite follow this.
Charlotte: To put it simply, you have to battle the whip's memory of past Belmonts in order to use it.
Jonathan: Whoah, no way! They're a legendary family that only exists in myths. Or, rather, I WISH they were. Still, Father could do it. I can, too.
Eric: That's the spirit. It's not an actual Belmont. It's just a image of them. Never forget that.

Jonathan: (smiles) No problem.

Eric's Final Advice
Eric: This power! Has Dracula been revived?!

Jonathan: Afraid so.
Charlotte: Brauner was sealing Dracula away, so when we destroyed him...
Eric: Strange. Even Brauner's seals would be easily broken by Dracula's power, and yet--
Charlotte: !! Perhaps Dracula still hasn't revived completely!
Eric: Perhaps.
Jonathan: Either way, our only choice is to defeat him. And I'd prefer the easiest way to do that.
Charlotte: All right, let's go.
Eric: This is your final battle. Don't do anything foolish and get killed, you hear?

Jonathan: ... Let's go!

Jonathan: That's right. Eric said that himself, didn't he? Whatever you do, don't overdo it.
Charlotte: Jonathan, for you, trying harder might be a good thing.
