Death-of-Roland

The Great Explosion is an event that took place circa 1547 at Dracula's Castle. It is, as its name suggests, a huge explosion that destroyed the Brotherhood of Light's army after their failed attempt to take the castle.

BackgroundEdit

GreatExplosion1

The Great Explosion, from the Book of Dracul

Tangible differences in the sediment found under this land prove that a great explosion of energy had its epicenter at this very spot. Originally, geologists thought that it was the result of the impact of an enormous meteorite. However, following the recent discovery of numerous human remains, the hypothesis defended by the church has gained greater strength. It claims that the release of energy was the work of God himself, and that it was he who channeled His power through Roland de Ronceval. His representative on Earth, to defeat the forces of evil. Even today, scientists and believers disagree on these theories. We pray that one day we might know the truth.

StoryEdit

After being defeated by Dracula himself, Roland de Ronceval, a Paladin, takes his crucifix and starts praying. Dracula joins the prayer, and grabs the cross to show that God and holy power has no effect on him because in the past he was God's chosen warrior. A first explosion blows off the soldiers nearby.

At the end of the prayer, finished by Dracula, the holy power explodes. The nuclear-like explosion is seen from space, and heard from thousands of miles away. Dracula is the only survivor of the explosion, maybe with the exception of Alucard, who appears after (possibly due to their shared immortality, rendering Alucard immune to holy energy as well).

IncantationEdit

Dracula and Paladin

Similar to most spells in the Lords of Shadow saga, the Great Explosion uses a Latin wording and requires a considerably longer casting time than any other magic seen, which is mostly attributed to its enormous power. The holy magic creates a minor, though still big explosion around the caster, before culminating in a massive explosion, so large that it can be seen from space, incinerating everything around the caster. The incantation for the spell as the game shows is the following:

Christus Vivit, Christus Regnat.
Christus ab omni malo te deficit.
Maledecit et Excommunicati daemones.
Invirtue istorum factorum Dei nominum.
Mesias, Emmanuel, Sohter,
Sabahot, Agios, Inchiros,
Athanatos, Jehová, Adonai,

Ubi, fuerint haec nomina, ei digna Dei,
praecipimus vobis,
atque ligamus vos ui non habeatis,
potestatem per pesten, nec per aliquod,
quodeumque maleficum nocere ei,
incantationem neque,
in anima, nec in corpore!

Christ lives, Christ reigns.
Christ will defeat all evil from you.
Curse and Excommunicate all demons.
In virtue of the deeds in His name.
Messiah, Immanuel, Sohter,
Sanctus, Agios, Inchiros,
The Immortal, Jehovah, Adonai,

Worthy God, by these names,
we demand to You,
us, without power and bound to You,
by Your great powers, or not by them,
to kill all felons,
with an enchantment,
in spirit, and in body!

Casualties and consequencesEdit

  • Roland de Ronceval
  • Around 500,000 soldiers from the Brotherhood (according to a scroll)
  • Various equipment
  • Dracula's Castle is destroyed down to its foundations (it left a huge crater that is still visible 500 years later, when Castlevania City was built over the same foundations).
