Rinaldo's Cabin
"It was five years ago... A cold night with a full moon. I returned home from picking herbs necessary for the secret arts and what greeted me was a sea of steaming blood. And at the center of it were the bodies of my wife and son... I could not believe my eyes... My daughter was there, laughing, blood dripping from her mouth..."
—Rinaldo to Leon, talking about his daughter

Rinaldo Gandolfi is an alchemist whose daughter was taken and vampirized by Walter Bernhard. He now lives in a small hut in the Forest of Eternal Night. Rinaldo creates the Whip of Alchemy for Leon Belmont, but this whip is later fused with his fiancée, Sara Trantoul, to create the Vampire Killer, the famous whip of the Belmont Clan.

Official background: An alchemist who lives in the forest ruled by the vampire. Leon obtains his first whip from this man. He also helps Leon by selling potions and other items. Rinaldo appears to have a score to settle with the vampire.

Character HistoryEdit

Rinaldo has lost all of his family by Justine; including his wife and son. In response, Rinaldo created the Whip of Alchemy and destroyed her with it. Rinaldo then challenged Walter, but the whip had no effect on him, and nothing became of the battle. Amused, Walter permitted Rinaldo to live and set up shop in the forest, where he would help others who had grudges against Walter. Walter thought that it made the "game" more fun. Rinaldo held out hope that where he had failed, another would succeed.

After Leon's defeat of Walter, Rinaldo appears to have been able to move on with his life. He likely remarried and had more children. He would have many descendants, including Giovanni, who helped the Belmont clan fight "The Order" in the 17th Century.
