Quincy Morris is a mentioned character in Castlevania: Bloodlines. He was the father of John Morris and grandfather of Jonathan Morris.

In 1897, Quincy successfully killed Dracula, although he was fatally wounded in the battle.

BackgroundEdit

In 1897 Quincy Morris, a descendant of the House of Belmont, overcame great odds to defeat Dracula and send him to his eternal grave. Unfortunately since Quincy was so badly beaten in his battle with the Count, he lost his own life after plunging a wooden stake into Dracula's chest.
Quincy's legacy has continued, however. His son—John Morris—and John's childhood friend Eric Lecarde had witnessed the Quincy/Dracula showdown from the shadows. That scene changed their lives forever—as they grew older they swore to rid the planet of the evil creatures of the underworld.[1]

Differences from the novelEdit

Rather than an original character, Quincy Morris is based on Quincey Morris (spelled with an "e"), a character from Bram Stoker's novel, Dracula. Quincey hailed from Texas and was one of Lucy's suitors. He helped fight Count Dracula after her vampirization and death, although he also died in the struggle, having been stabbed by one of Dracula's gypsy servants.

In the Castlevania series, Quincy is a relative of the Belmonts through the Morris Clan. The game's account of the novel differs from it in many regards, although it still retains some aspects; in the novel, Quincey plunges his bowie knife through Dracula's heart, while in the series, he plunges a wooden stake.

The novel does not take place in 1897, and the educated guesses are 1890, 1893, or 1888. 1890 comes from Harker's note at the end saying "seven years ago", which is when Stoker started writing. 1893 comes from early Stoker's sketches mentioning this year indirectly multiple times, and Van Helsing's mention of the death of a physician called "Charcot", referring to the real Jean-Martin Charcot. 1888 comes from the mention of Whitechapel as one of the places where Dracula set up his boxes, implying he might have been Jack the Ripper. From all of these, 1893 is the most accepted.

Taking place anywhere before 1895 and ending with Quincy's death makes it impossible for John Morris to have been born (1895). Furthermore, it's implied Quincey Morris died a virgin in the novel.

Dracula's goal and motives in the novel (turn everyone into vampires to relive war times) is different from the series' Dracula (extinction of humanity). Also, the Dracula from the novel wants to form an army, while the one from the series already has one.
