SomaDawn

Soma Cruz in Dawn of Sorrow.

Soma Cruz makes his appearance as a protagonist again in Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow. He can now collect up to nine souls of the same kind; having multiple souls will increase the power of their abilities in various increments, depending on the soul itself. His physical weapons can be evolved into more powerful weapons by going to Yoko's Shop and having her combine them with one of his collected souls. The Doppelgänger soul can be found later in the game, which allows him to set up two completely different sets of equipment from his inventory and quickly swap between them.

A New Threat Emerges
(Soma and Mina are standing in a city street)

Mina Hakuba: Ha ha! Are you serious?
Soma Cruz: Yeah, and that's when Hammer decided to--
Mina Hakuba: Wait... Soma, can I ask you something?
Soma Cruz: Yeah, of course, Mina. What's wrong?
Mina Hakuba: It's been a year since it all happened, hasn't it?
Soma Cruz: Yeah, just about.
Mina Hakuba: And what was it called? You know, the ability to use the power of monsters?
Soma Cruz: You mean the power of dominance? I lost it when we escaped Dracula's Castle, remember?
Mina Hakuba: I know, but... It's just that I get this terrible feeling inside...
Soma Cruz: It's probably nothing... Look, don't worry, okay? This past year, I haven't been able to use any of the powers I gained. And--
(Suddenly someone shows up out of nowhere. Mina hides behind Soma)
???: You... You're Soma Cruz, aren't you?
Soma Cruz: Uh... Yeah... And you are?
???: You may call me Celia.
(Celia points at Soma)
Celia Fortner: But not for long... Come forth, my servants!
(Celia summons a Skeleton. Mina screams from behind)
Soma Cruz: What?! Mina, get back!
(Mina steps back)
Soma Cruz: Damn it! Of all the worst--
???: Soma! You back off, too!
(Arikado shows up)
Mina Hakuba: Mr. Arikado!
Celia Fortner: Genya Arikado, the guardian?! Hmph! You shall not interfere!
(Celia casts a barrier)
Genya Arikado: A barrier! Quick, Soma! Use this!
(Arikado throws a knife to Soma for him to use. Then the fight begins. Soma defeats three enemies and gained dominance over their souls)
Celia Fortner: Soma Cruz, I shall see your demise. That is certain. Using whatever means...
(Celia vanishes in seconds)
Soma Cruz: Wait!
Genya Arikado: Save your energy. You won't catch her now.
Soma Cruz: Damn it!
Mina Hakuba: Soma, are you all right?
Soma Cruz: Yeah, I'm fine. But that power... It returned! Arikado, what's going on?
Genya Arikado: The power didn't "return." It was always with you. You just never had a need for it since you fled the castle. And that set free all the souls that you had gained dominance over.
Soma Cruz: You mean I couldn't use the power because I was never in any danger? Hmm. Anyway, who was that woman? She seemed to know you.
Genya Arikado: Celia Fortner. She's the priestess of a new and rapidly growing cult. We suspected she was up to something, so we've been keeping tabs on her.
Mina Hakuba: But why would someone like that come after Soma?
Genya Arikado: They want to resurrect the lord of darkness. Like some sought to do with Dracula.
Soma Cruz: I guess they don't like the fact that I didn't become the "lord of darkness."
Genya Arikado: Not only that, they intend to create a new lord by eliminating you.
Mina Hakuba: E-Eliminating?
Genya Arikado: But Soma, you don't need to get any more involved with this. Let us deal with it.
(Arikado leaves)
Soma Cruz: That woman... She said she would "see my demise."

Mina Hakuba: Soma...

The Hopeless Romantic
Several days later...

Soma Cruz: So, the cult's base is here. Hammer's info wasn't so iffy after all.
???: Gahaha! You doubted my word?!
(Hammer shows up)
Soma Cruz: H-Hammer? What are you doing here?
(Hammer draws closer to Soma)
Hammer: What, are ya dense? Who told ya 'bout this place? Wait, it was me.
Soma Cruz: Well, yeah, but...
Hammer: Hey, you got your mind on doin' somethin' wicked, huh? I want in, buddy.
(Hammer blushed)
Hammer: And, hey, what happened to that pretty little lady? You remember, right?
Soma Cruz: You mean Yoko? She's not coming. In fact, I haven't told a soul.
(Hammer is disappointed with what he heard)
Hammer: Huh? She ain't comin'? Well, why not?!
(Hammer then looks Soma straight)
Hammer: Aw, man... Well, since I'm here, I'd better make the best of it. I guess I'm back in business, and you're my customer!
Soma Cruz: Hammer, look, I'm saying this for your own good. You really should leave.
Hammer: Can't do that, I'm afraid. I know when someone's in trouble and I'm not just gonna leave ya here.
Soma Cruz: Okay... I appreciate it.
Hammer: I'll scope out the area and find a spot to set up shop. See ya around!
(Hammer walks away but still disappointed)
Hammer: Man, why wouldn't he just tell her about this...?

Old Friends Reunited
(At the drawbridge of castle’s entrance)

Soma Cruz: Huh? Those two...
(Soma approaches Yoko and Julius)
Yoko Belnades: Oh! Soma!
Julius Belmont: ...
Soma Cruz: Yoko. Julius. What are you two doing here?
Yoko Belnades: Funny you should ask that. We got wind of this cult from a tip by Arikado. I'm investigating with Mr. Belmont. I'm sure you remember him, the hunter.
Julius Belmont: Soma, please understand. If the darkness draws you in... I have no choice but to destroy you.
Soma Cruz: Yes, I know...
Julius Belmont: Then, there is no reason for you to be here.
Yoko Belnades: That's right. You're only putting yourself in danger.
Soma Cruz: That Celia woman... Not only was she after me, she tried to harm Mina, too. I'm not gonna stop until I find her.
Julius Belmont: You're determined, I see. Then, I have nothing more to say.
(Julius leaves)
Yoko Belnades: Wait. Wait, Julius. How can you just say that?
Julius Belmont: I'll be going now.
Yoko Belnades: Wait a second. I'm coming, too.
Julius Belmont: No, Yoko, you stay. We'll need a contact here, just in case.
Yoko Belnades: Hey, wait! You can't just...!
(Julius jumps over the suspended bridge and leaves)
Yoko Belnades: Men! They're so selfish! I bet you have no intention of going home, either.
Soma Cruz: Well, uh...
Yoko Belnades: Fine, then. Here, take this.
(Yoko hands Soma the Magic Seal 1)
Soma Cruz: And this is?
Yoko Belnades: A Magic Seal.
Soma Cruz: Magic Seal?
Yoko Belnades: The cult leader appears to create gates that draw the power of darkness. Monsters exposed to that power are said to be invincible.
Soma Cruz: So how am I supposed to destroy them?
Yoko Belnades: That's where this Magic Seal comes in. Want to practice using it?
Soma Cruz: Sure, I'll give it a try.
Yoko Belnades: Good. Now watch closely. Draw a figure exactly as shown.
(The Magic Seal is shown to Soma)
Yoko Belnades: Okay, now you try it.
(The Magic Seal is completed)
Yoko Belnades: Good, that's it. Just don't forget how you did that. Oh, one more thing. You can practice drawing a Magic Seal anytime. If you're not sure how to do it, you should definitely practice.
Soma Cruz: Got it.
Yoko Belnades: A Magic Seal activates on its own when it's needed. Give it a try and see. Okay, now... Let's go, Soma.
Soma Cruz: Huh? Go where?
Yoko Belnades: It's a dead end here. Only Julius could get in from somewhere like this. We should go back and find a different way in.
Soma Cruz: All right. If we have to...
Yoko Belnades: There's no shelter from the rain and wind here, either. Will you escort me?
Soma Cruz: Uh... Sure, of course.
Yoko Belnades: Thanks. Let's go.

Stronger Magic Seals
(Yoko enters the room where Soma is)

Yoko Belnades: You did it!
Soma Cruz: Using Magic Seals is a piece of cake.
Yoko Belnades: Don't be too sure. That Magic Seal won't be useful forever.
Soma Cruz: What do you mean?
Yoko Belnades: They will probably prepare new and more complex patterns for Magic Seals.
Soma Cruz: Hmm...
Yoko Belnades: But not to worry. They'll have the Magic Seal patterns hidden somewhere. If they don't, the gates to the dark side will be useless.
Soma Cruz: I get it.
Yoko Belnades: I won't keep holding you up as my escort anymore. I can manage now.
Soma Cruz: You sure? In that case, I'll be going now.
Yoko Belnades: Oh, there is one more thing though. Julius may have some new information, so come see me if you're close by. And Soma, please don't do anything reckless.

Soma Cruz: Count on it. You take care, too, Yoko.

Yoko's Synthesizing Ability
(In Yoko's synthesis room)

Yoko Belnades: Oh, hi, Soma.
Soma Cruz: You're going to act as Julius's contact here?
Yoko Belnades: Yes. There was no one living here, so I thought it'd be okay. Oh, that rough-looking guy's right across from me. What was his name again?
Soma Cruz: Hammer?
Yoko Belnades: Yes, that's it. What is he doing here?
Soma Cruz: He came to help me.
Yoko Belnades: Honestly, you didn't ask him to come, did you, Soma?
Soma Cruz: Of course I didn't.
Yoko Belnades: I'm sure you wouldn't. But it's too dangerous for him to be here. Can't you tell him to leave, Soma?
Soma Cruz: I told him already. He wouldn't budge. Besides, it's hopeless now. Especially after someone who's not supposed to be here showed up.
Yoko Belnades: Huh? Well, if he wouldn't listen to you, I suppose it is hopeless. By the way, I gained a new ability.
Soma Cruz: A new ability? What?
Yoko Belnades: So, the power of dominance lets you control the souls of monsters, right?
Soma Cruz: Right.
Yoko Belnades: So I thought I could use magic to draw the monster souls out and use them.
Soma Cruz: You mean release the souls?
Yoko Belnades: Something like that. Of course, I would need your cooperation, Soma. And it's not something that's easy to do.
Soma Cruz: So how do you plan to use these freed souls?
Yoko Belnades: Well, I can fuse the freed souls with a weapon, thus creating a new weapon. The souls you use will be lost, though.
Soma Cruz: Can you even do that?
Yoko Belnades: That's rather rude of you to ask! I may not look the part, but I am considered an exceptional spell caster. Just tell me if you need something. I'll prove it to you.
Soma Cruz: Okay, then.
Yoko Belnades: Oh, and by applying my ability, I may be able to reduce the souls used. I'm not sure if you'll need it, but just keep that in mind.
Soma Cruz: Got it.
Yoko Belnades: So, may I help you with anything today?

Soma Cruz: ??
(Hammer blushed)
Hammer: Yoko's in the area. I saw her earlier. She must've come after me.
Soma Cruz: That's not it.
Hammer: Geez! You sure are quick to put a man down, aren't ya?
Soma Cruz: She's here to investigate this cult, she said.
Hammer: Well, whatever the case, I can tell you I'm a lot more motivated this time.

The Dark Lord Canditates
(Somewhere in the Wizardry Lab)

Soma Cruz: !! You!
(Celia and two others turns their attention to Soma)
Celia Fortner: Ah...you've come. Just as I predicted.
Soma Cruz: Celia Fortner...
???: You're kiddin', right? You tellin' me this punk's the lord of darkness? Ha!
???: Judging matters merely on appearance? Tsk, tsk. Simpletons are so vexing.
???: What'd ya call me, Dmitrii?!
Dmitrii Blinov: Hmph. I merely stated a fact.
Celia Fortner: Dario, Dmitrii. Both of you, enough.
Dario Bossi: Tch!
Dmitrii Blinov: ...
Celia Fortner: Excuse their behavior. Welcome to our House, home to our Church.
Soma Cruz: You talk as if you were expecting me...
Celia Fortner: You fear that you will imperil innocents for who you are and can become. Am I not correct?
Soma Cruz: ...Yes. I fell for your ruse. Why would you want to resurrect the dark lord?
Celia Fortner: We do not desire the dark lord, per se. For god to be perfectly good, there must be a being of perfect darkness.
Soma Cruz: That has nothing to do with me. If this world does need a perfect dark being, one should emerge. Isn't that how it works?
Celia Fortner: Perhaps that is so. And perhaps it is not. What is true, however, is that the power of darkness steadily grows faint. The lord of darkness must be enthroned without fail. And not a moment too soon.
Soma Cruz: But that doesn't mean...
Dario Bossi: I heard enough already. Let's rip this punk apart right here and now!
Celia Fortner: Have patience. He will try to stop me using whatever means. There is no need for haste.
Dario Bossi: Hunh? What are you saying?
Dmitrii Blinov: He is in our hands now. We can destroy him whenever, however we wish.
Celia Fortner: Correct. This will also serve as a test for the both of you.
Dmitrii Blinov: I see.
Dario Bossi: Wait a second! Test? What test? I didn't hear about that!
Dmitrii Blinov: Are you incapable of thinking even a little? There is but one dark lord, yet there are two candidates--you and I.
Dario Bossi: Duh! I know that!
Dmitrii Blinov: Then get this through your hollow skull. Whoever defeats this boy becomes chosen as the lord of darkness.
Dario Bossi: Oh, I get it now... Yeah, okay! This'll make it fun! Next time I see you, punk, I'll burn you to ashes!
(Dario leaves)
Dmitrii Blinov: I shall depart, also. I see no significance in my presence here at this time.
(Dmitrii leaves)
Soma Cruz: So those two are the dark lord's candidates...
Celia Fortner: Correct.They were born at the same time as Dracula's demise. They are inheritors of Dracula's dark powers.
Soma Cruz: But that's no guarantee that they can become the dark lord.
Celia Fortner: They can. By shattering Dracula's soul. If you wish to stop me, I shall be waiting for you at the top. I may even change my mind if you survive my traps.

(Celia leaves)

Dmitrii Blinov: Oh, excuse me for that rather uncouth scene.
Soma Cruz: You're one of the dark lord candidates...
Dmitrii Blinov: Dmitrii Blinov.
Soma Cruz: You were fighting a demon. Does that mean you've forsaken Celia?
Dmitrii Blinov: You have drawn the wrong conclusion. This is merely a ritual to gain power.
Soma Cruz: A ritual?
Dmitrii Blinov: You witnessed it, yes? Unless you are as dim as Dario, you should have discerned my ability.
Soma Cruz: So, that's what it is. The ability to copy magic attacks...
Dmitrii Blinov: Ah, how observant of you. Now, since there is no one else to disrupt us...
Soma Cruz: Hold it. I don't have any reason to fight you. Do you have any reason for going along with Celia's scheme?
Dmitrii Blinov: None whatsoever.
Soma Cruz: Well, then!
Dmitrii Blinov: However, I have this power. I wish to know the meaning of it, its significance. Is that not a natural desire?
Soma Cruz: And for that, you want to become the dark lord?
Dmitrii Blinov: Is that so wrong? Refining my power will finally provide me with answers. Let us begin.

Soma Cruz: Arikado! What are you doing here? I thought that you were protecting Mina...
Genya Arikado: Mina is fine. My colleagues are providing protection. Besides, keeping you under observation gets priority.
Soma Cruz: You're still treating me as if I were the dark lord. Haven't you seen enough?
Genya Arikado: I need you to understand. You are considered to be extremely dangerous...
Soma Cruz: ...
Genya Arikado: But since you're here, I suppose I can't stop you. While under my supervision, I'm prepared to overlook use of excessive force. Besides, we can't just allow this cult to carry on this way.
Soma Cruz: Th-Thanks. I appreciate it.
Genya Arikado: Also, Mina entrusted me with this. It's for you.
(Arikado hands Soma Mina's Talisman)
Soma Cruz: What? A letter? And a talisman?
(Soma turns round to read the letter in private)
Mina Hakuba: Dear Soma, If you're reading this, you've probably gone after that cult. I had a feeling you would when you disappeared after that incident. I know that you worry about me, Soma. But I worry just as much about you, too. I won't ask you to come back right away because you're way too stubborn. But please promise me that whatever happens, you'll come back unharmed. Oh, and don't forget about the talisman! I'm sure it'll come in handy. I'll be praying for you. Always, Mina
Soma Cruz: Mina...
Genya Arikado: Soma.
Soma Cruz: !!
(Soma turns back towards Arikado)
Genya Arikado: Brief me on the situation. What have you discovered?
Soma Cruz: Uh... Sure. (I described what I had learned so far to Arikado.)
Genya Arikado: Understood. But the fact that Celia mentioned a "plan" doesn't sound good.
Soma Cruz: The only thing I can do is keep climbing towards the top floor.
Genya Arikado: Fine, you do that. In the meantime, I'll try to track down Dario's whereabouts.

Soma Cruz: Why is that?
Julius Belmont: The barrier's too strong. I may be able to crack it, but just a bit. It'd be better to contact Yoko and await help. What about you?

Burden
(In Yoko's synthesis room)

Yoko Belnades: Oh, hello. Can I ask you something?
Soma Cruz: What is it?
Yoko Belnades: It's about Julius. Do you think he considers me to be just a burden?
Soma Cruz: I... I don't think he thinks that.
Yoko Belnades: Soma, you saw him. At the drawbridge, he left without a word from me. He also said the monsters inside were tough, so I offered to help. And do you know what? He turned me down as if I were a child!!
Soma Cruz: Whoa, calm down.
Yoko Belnades: What? Are you on Julius' side, too, Soma?
Soma Cruz: No, that's not it. I'm sure that Julius is just worried about you.
Yoko Belnades: But I can fight, too. There's no need for him to worry about me!
Soma Cruz: Yoko, you just don't understand how a guy thinks. He just cares about you and doesn't want to see you get hurt. That would be ten times worse than getting hurt himself.
Yoko Belnades: But...
Soma Cruz: You have to try to understand for his sake... If I were in Julius's spot, I think I'd say the same thing.
Yoko Belnades: Really? Well, I guess I can see that... But waiting around all the time isn't much fun. When you get home, make sure you treat Mina right.
Soma Cruz: Yeah, I know...
Yoko Belnades: I'm glad I have someone to confide in. So, how may I help you?

Julius Belmont: I'm fine. Don't worry.
Dario Bossi: What? You done already? So much for the "legendary" Belmont!
Julius Belmont: Hmph. Talk all you want...
Dario Bossi: Hey, punk! Looks like I can get me a little payback from ya! But I'm not at full power just yet... The throne chamber on the top floor--you were headin' there, weren't ya? That's where we'll settle scores once and for all.
(Dario vanishes before their eyes)
Julius Belmont: Watch it. He's tough. Especially for me, since I can't use Magic Seals.
Soma Cruz: Hold on, Julius. You can't use Magic Seals?
Julius Belmont: Uh-huh. What about it?
Soma Cruz: Well, didn't you run into monsters that you couldn't destroy?
Julius Belmont: No, I destroyed them before they could reconstitute. They weren't a problem. But this time, I don't think that'll work.
Soma Cruz: (You've got to be joking. That should've been impossible.)
Julius Belmont: Forget about me. You can go on. I'll be fine.
Soma Cruz: He's expecting me. I'll be on my way.
Julius Belmont: Watch out for his fire attacks. But you can do it. Don't disappoint me.

Yoko Belnades: Dario Bossi. He has the ability to create fires. He's been implicated in countless inexplicable fires. He's a wicked criminal who's wanted all around the globe.

Soma Cruz: Yeah, he said he's here to keep an eye on me.
Yoko Belnades: I thought he was supposed to be guarding Mina.
Soma Cruz: That's what I thought, too. That's why I came here feeling confident.
Yoko Belnades: Well, since it is him, I doubt that there would be any problems. But his being here must mean this situation is very serious.
Soma Cruz: He lectured me to behave.
Yoko Belnades: I don't blame him. I would rather see you go home, too.
Soma Cruz: But I...
Yoko Belnades: I understand that. But it's not a bad thing to rely on the help of others. Don't try to carry the burden yourself. That's why we're here.

Dario Bossi: Hah! Even Belmont was no match for me. You think a punk like YOU can win?
Soma Cruz: Was there ever any doubt? Power is nothing if you don't know how to use it. I'll never lose to a fool dominated by his own power like you.
Dario Bossi: Well, what's the point of power if you don't use it? Don't act as if you know! It's about survival of the fittest! Let's see you try to survive this time! Graaaah!!

Genya Arikado: Get away from him, Soma!
(Arikado shows up and Dario is beginning to explode with overwhelming power)
Dario Bossi: Nooooooooooo!
(Dario dies)
Genya Arikado: He couldn't resist the demon that had fused with his soul.
Soma Cruz: You're saying he lost to the demon's power?
Genya Arikado: He perhaps could have been saved if the demon was cut free from his soul, but... Don't let it concern you. That's just what happens when you let your hunger for power overwhelm you.
Soma Cruz: ... Arikado... What became of Celia?
Genya Arikado: I'm sorry... We have units tracking her whereabouts now.

Genya Arikado: Go on.
Soma Cruz: I never finished him off. But he died anyway. And that's when I felt something enter me...like a soul under domination.
Genya Arikado: ... We'll have to investigate. Come, we'll meet with Yoko right away and head for the Church.

Dario Bossi: Wh-What did ya do, punk?! My power... It's gone...
Soma Cruz: I destroyed the demon that fused with your soul. And your power with it.
Dario Bossi: My... My power!
Soma Cruz: Having power doesn't mean you can abuse it. Haven't you learned your lesson?
Dario Bossi: Aiyeeee!

Celia Fortner: You are much more than I had imagined.
Soma Cruz: I came as I promised. Let's stop this stupid chase.
Celia Fortner: Very well. I can agree to that...
Soma Cruz: You don't seem to be too concerned about this. It's as if you knew this was going to happen.
Celia Fortner: Well, who am I to say? But there is more than one way to make a dark lord.
Soma Cruz: You don't give up, do you? There aren't any more dark lord candidates.
Celia Fortner: That may be true... But the game isn't over just yet.

(Dark souls are staring to gather round Soma and absorbing them)
Celia Fortner: The power of chaos is gathering... I was right. Now hate me more. When your hatred peaks, the new dark lord shall emerge.
Soma Cruz: If it means getting Mina's revenge, I'll do it. Make me the dark lord. Mina, forgive me... I can't honor your wish...
Celia Fortner: It's coming... The birth of the new dark lord!
Soma Cruz: AAAAAAAAAAGH!
(Soma strikes Celia down)
Celia Fortner: Wh-Why? I brought you back into this world...

Celia Fortner: Arikado! Why must you always get in the way?
Genya Arikado: How clever of you to use a Doppelganger. Ah, but you haven't won just yet...
(The dark souls that dominates Soma suddenly wane)
Soma Cruz: Uuuuugh!
Genya Arikado: What?! What's wrong?
(The dark souls starts to get out of Soma's body and transfers to the body of fake Mina)
Celia Fortner: D-Dmitrii...
Dmitrii Blinov: I should thank my lucky stars for making good my escape. I managed to loosen myself when the boy's emotions shifted momentarily.
Celia Fortner: I thought you'd died...
Dmitrii Blinov: Shedding my former body was a desperate gamble. But it has worked out quite well.
Genya Arikado: You copied the power of dominance from Soma?
Dmitrii Blinov: Ah, so you understand. I touched the boy's soul and copied his ability. And I have been doubly lucky in finding a suitable replacement for my body.
Celia Fortner: Y-You obtained the same power as Soma Cruz?
Dmitrii Blinov: When I fought the boy, I confirmed one thing. Dracula's heir need not be the inheritor of the dark lord's power. I only need to possess the same ability to become the true dark lord's heir. And of course, only I could gain that ability.
Genya Arikado: I won't allow that.
Dmitrii Blinov: Have patience, Arikado. Or perhaps I should address you with your real name? When the boy began his dark transformation, I scanned memories of his past lives. Make one move, and the boy will die. You don't wish that, do you?
Genya Arikado: Hmph.
(Soma gets up)
Soma Cruz: Does becoming the dark lord really mean that much to you?
Dmitrii Blinov: I have told you before. I wish to learn what my power signifies. Celia. I must gain dominance over more powerful demons. I will surpass the boy.
Celia Fortner: So be it. Soma Cruz, I take back what I have said to you. It seems that death is your only destiny.
(Dmitrii and Celia vanish before their eyes)
Soma Cruz: Arikado, where do you think they've gone?
Genya Arikado: I imagine that they've gone to the basement of the tower next to the castle. A foul, unearthly energy emanates from there. There must be a portal to the dark side that fuels the castle's existence.
Soma Cruz: I see...
Genya Arikado: Don't do anything rash. You're not in any shape to fight now. Let us handle this.
Soma Cruz: His power is mine. I must be the one to stop him.
Genya Arikado: ... Fine... But Julius and I will go in first.

Soma Cruz: !!
Genya Arikado: Soma?
Soma Cruz: What happened?!
Dmitrii Blinov: He arrived too late, quite simply.
Genya Arikado: He gained dominance over a calamitous demon. I tried to prevent the summoning ritual from happening, but...
Dmitrii Blinov: Your dark power failed to overcome the power I gained from the sacrifice.
Soma Cruz: Sacrifice?
(Celia is shown crucified above them)
Soma Cruz: C-Celia!
Dmitrii Blinov: Such an unseemly sight. Be gone.
(Dmitrii destroys the cross with Celia on it)
Soma Cruz: You killed your own ally?
Dmitrii Blinov: She had always dreamed of seeing the dark lord. She served me to the end in my becoming. She should feel honored. Not only that, she even helped me take care of that pesky Arikado.
Soma Cruz: ?!
Genya Arikado: He's right. His sacrifice reversed the flow of my dark power.
Dmitrii Blinov: The stage is now set. We shall see whose power of dominance prevails...
(Dmitrii is losing himself as he was overcome by the power he absorbed earlier from the sacrifice)
Soma Cruz: Wh-What?
Dmitrii Blinov: Th-This cannot be... My dominance should be complete!
Genya Arikado: So that's what's happening...
Soma Cruz: Arikado, what's going on?
Genya Arikado: The power of dominance isn't easily contained. He isn't like you. His soul can't withstand a power that intense.
Dmitrii Blinov: Liar!! I've heard enough from you!
(Dmitrii casts Arikado out of the Abyss with a spell)
Genya Arikado: Gwoh!
Soma Cruz: Arikado!
Dmitrii Blinov: I am the chosen one! I am the dark lord! I shall not succumb to the power! Wroooooooaaaah!

Dmitrii Blinov: Gwroaaah!

Genya Arikado: Soma, what's wrong?
Soma Cruz: Tell me. Just what is the dark lord?
Genya Arikado: What Celia told you wasn't necessarily wrong. The dark lord is the entity opposite to god.
Soma Cruz: Then that means there will always be a need for a dark lord. All because I ducked out from becoming the next in line!
Genya Arikado: Don't misconstrue me! Perhaps there is a need for the dark lord... But there is no reason at all for you to become the dark lord.
Soma Cruz: But if it weren't for me, none of this would have happened!
Genya Arikado: You're neither a god nor a demon. You're only human. You have no chance at ever achieving perfection. Or are you saying you want to be the dark lord?
Soma Cruz: No... Of course not.
Genya Arikado: Then stay true to that. Look.

Abilities and EquipmentEdit

Soma can now collect up to nine souls of the same kind; having multiple souls will increase the power of their abilities in various increments, depending on the soul itself. His physical weapons can be evolved into more powerful weapons by going to Yoko's Shop and having her combine them with one of his collected souls. The Doppelgänger soul can be found later in the game, which allows him to set up two completely different sets of equipment from his inventory and quickly swap between them.
