Sanctuary is a spell Charlotte can use in Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin. It is found in the Sandy Grave, in a room with a rolling boulder on a down slope. Either the Toad Morph or Owl Morph are necessary to get it; the space is too small for Charlotte or Jonathan to walk through. The spell takes a very long time to cast, so it is advised to have Jonathan protect Charlotte so that she is not interrupted. Once cast, Sanctuary releases a wave of holy light from the ground to about midscreen. Anything caught in the light is healed of any ailments, and it can be used for a variety of effects. Most importantly, it is used to heal Vincent, Loretta, and Stella of their vampirism, otherwise the player would kill Loretta and Stella, getting the bad ending of the game. It can also heal players with poison or curse effect ailments, though the time it takes to cast makes it impractical. Lastly, it can be used to destroy Red Skeletons and Red Axe Armors, as opposed to using the Undead Killer Whip which is found later in the game.
